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

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.

      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!




      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads






      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.

      A long time ago, in March 2019 to be exact, @NomadZeke set a painting challenge for that years April Fools Day. Paint something ridiculous.......20 months later I finally finished my entry for it He's based on a Pathfinder Huge pawn holder for ease of use in games.
      I absolutely adore this mini, in my opinion it's the best Huge sized dragons on the market and one of Julie Guthrie's most stunning sculpts 
      I humbly present to you, Kyphrixis the multi-hued Rainbow Dragon!

      Hope y'all like him, as always all comments and criticisms are happily received
