Buckyball's kickstarter vampire workshop

Wow incredible! Can't wait to see the group shots!

 

Here they are in one big group.  I photographed them in sunlight so it is not the best picture.  I will try to get a better picture at my FLGS next time I go there.

I can't IMAGINE getting all of those done.

I can't even speculate how much paint and how many brushes you went through to accomplish this !

 

Incredible job !

Thanks a lot for the incredible work -- very inspirational.  I wanted to do exactly what you did: spend all summer painting Bones -- but I didn't get them until the end of the summer.

 

Now, THIS summer I am going to be looking at your thread all the time. 

 

I really liked the strategic grouping of miniatures as a means of painting them together.  Very intuitive but just the kind of thing I am terrible at figuring out. 

 

Congratulations and thanks again!

I used up two Da Vinci 0 brushes and my cheapo primer brush.  I have no idea how much paint I used, but I went through one full bottle of Reaper Master series white primer, and I was on my third bottle of Reaper matte sealer when I was done.  There were however about another twenty or so non-bones miniatures I painted for other games, and I let other people use my paints at a mini painting workshop at bubonicon.  So the 2+ bottles of sealer is a bit of an overestimate.

If you want to see the master of strategic grouping, check out Paul Ward's painting logs at Matakishi's Tea House.

This guy's productivity is insane.  He makes me look like I am painting at a snail's pace.

Here is a link to a photo of my latest WIP from the original Kickstarter.

It is the Clockwork Dragon and it is the last of the dragon minis that I had included as an add-on in my first Kickstarter order. I wanted to finish it before the miniatures from Kickstarter II come.

Here are photos of the tail end of the remaining bones miniatures I had got a year ago

These had been add-ons from last year's Kickstarter

I guess I am now ready for this year's Kickstarter

When I started this mass painting project I had no idea how often I would need  the figures. Originally I had a vague idea of what games I could use them in. But I could not have anticipated the new games that came along, that happened to use fantasy miniatures. I am very pleased with the use the miniatures get in all the games I play, and I am glad I painted so many miniatures just to have. I think there is a base number of figures gamers should just finish so they will be available. Then you can build on what you have already painted as the need arises.

Impressive painting and thread necromancy :)

 

The core set was called a vampire box. I think it is fitting that it should not die.
