I love this pic.



"No no, I said click top right....never mind I'll do it!"


Also, very nice paint job. I really have to put one these guys together.


I would Really recommend it, I learned a lot about working with bones (not meaning the material but boneish monsters) also very fun to paint.

Been a bit busy lately and haven't been painting, I took some time last night after work to play around with an idea as far as getting a base coat down.
I mixed about 4/1 matte medium to sapphire blue and went to work Over all I'm liking the slightly muted color, It still acts slightly like a wash so it took some extra coats but Over all much easier than a traditional wash on a bones.


will add some pictures soonish.

So like i was saying I used a lot of matt medium and a little bit of paint as a "wash" for base coating and here's the result. after this experiment I think this is going to be my preferred method of base coating large bones. Much less paint used to cover the areas there's still some sections that need additional coats but.

So we had a blast at boo at the zoo, and I just spoke with Adrienne (spelling?) @reaper about getting the missing head shipped for my frost worm from the kickstarter, Very friendly and helpful as always.
So I'm heading to work soon >,> backed up paper work from taking a few days off, I plan on getting some more painting done tomorrow morning and updating with some pictures.

So I took tonight off to take my daughter to boo at the zoo so I figure this morning is a good time to get some painting in.

Hey, those animals are trying their best, no need to be rude...

quick and dirty paintjob for a female dwarf for pathfinder, I went over the skirt with a two stage highlight but it's still to light to notice... I gave up finished.











Told you I'm not dead.

took today off work after a rough weekend shift and took a crack at my Long unfinished Maul.









ignore the black glaze on the horns that was a mistake that will be corrected.


need to clean the upper jaw a bit but it's a start.




the black glaze did wonders here imo.





went over the graveyard bone with some lighter vampire flesh

      Needed a bunch of ghoul types so grabbed a bunch or bones ghasts - and added in one of the bones IV ghouls. Not sure how I feel about the ghasts, I turned out kind of not liking them and regretting the purpleish color. An relearning I should never paint groups larger than 3 - I don't have the attention span....
      The grey themed bones iv ghoul made me smile though -
      quick paints for a graveyard scene. Tried adding some grey mud to the brown.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.

      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Look at this cute fellow!  But don't look directly at his eyes.  Too late?  Uh-oh, I'm sorry if you just turned to stone.
      Anyway ... this is the Basilisk, #77371 in Bones.



      The color scheme is inspired by the iridescent plumage of a bird, the White-faced Ibis (Plegadis chihi).  My folders of saved wildlife references include a photo of an ibis whose wing has golden, green, and orangey-pink metallic tones, and its head is more purplish-pink.
      I clipped away part of the integral base and built up this rocky base with putty.
      I added bits of two metal figures as the basilisk's petrified victims: the head is one of the 3 options for the Death Warden (Dark Heaven 03083), and the leg is from my Dwarf Shieldmaiden (Warlord 14379).  I imagine that the basilisk ate the rest of those 'statues' and left these for later snacking. 
      The grass is a preformed "Winter Tuft" product (dull yellow-green and black) with painted highlights, and the leaves are dried oregano, fully painted.
      I had used this basilisk as a demonstration figure at ReaperCon 2019 ... or maybe 2018 ... in my "Painting Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class. 
      It was all dark green, with just the front right shoulder area painted with highlights simulating smooth shiny scales. 
      It sat on my shelf since then.  I wanted to paint something small and relatively simple, so I mentally kicked around a few color schemes without conclusion until I rediscovered the image of the ibis last week.
      I spent a couple of hours wet-blending the colors, and then a few more hours glazing and stippling, shifting the scales green and pink and purple and yellow-ocher and orange, etc.

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.

      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor!  Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini.  Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit.  I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him.  Pretty happy with the result.  You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.

      I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather.  I think I was successful.  I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain.  Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.
