So I got sidetracked from LPK2 a bit by RL... and a Great Worm.


Painted up for tabletop use, I think it turned out pretty well. I keep surprising myself with how not sucky I can be if I take time to actually do it properly.


I'm going to list what I used for paints mostly for my own reference than anything else.


Body: Based with HD Gem Purple, washed with a mix of HD Twilight Purple and Black Wash.

Belly: Base HD Gem Purple, layered up through Clear Magenta, up to HD Entrail Pink

Pustule/Bumps: Based with Clear Red, then layered up to HD Fireball Orange, and then spotted with a bit of HD Golden Yellow.

Rocks: Based with HD Dirty Grey, washed with a mix of Brown Liner and Black Wash (I really like this mix), Then dry-brushed up HD Dirty Grey, HD Concrete Grey, and finally a mix of HD Concrete Grey, and Sample Tan (a good of a name as any).

Mouth: Linen White, washed with the same wash from body, then I decided I didn't like it and did a heavy glaze of Oiled Leather.

Teeth: Based HD Tusk Ivory, then highlighted with Linen White.





C&C welcome; Thanks :)

The adolescent Worm -with pimples!


Joking aside, nice one. But the base looks a bit unfinished. Maybe some sand or gravel painted in the same way as the rocks on the rest of the base tops' surface would do the trick.

Thanks, I had thought about glueing down some sand and painting but, it's for table-top game-play and I've no idea how rugged that is. I might eventually start doing some basing like that for table-top stuff, but not until my players get used to handling minis with a bit of respect. We've been using WotC D&D pre-paints for a few years now, they get tossed around without a second thought. To this end, I've offered to buy, and paint a character mini for them for a new campaign we'll be starting up shortly (ish), I'm hoping they'll get attached to them, they'll learn to be a little more protective of minis.

This is a very nice spin on the traditional purple. I really like how you've painted the pustules - they really pop against the skin colour! This is my favourite Bones miniature because of all the unique and creative ways that people have painted them. Thanks for sharing.

      Etherfields has some strange miniatures concepts.
      I wanted to embrace the dreamlike quality of them all by giving them a unified mood. So all of these minis use purple shadows and pale green highlighting.

      Here she is - she is an NPC in my campaign... friend or foe? Tried a darker skin but not sure I quite got it. Well, I was pleased even if her eyebrows are a bit odd.

      Alright.  So I want to share some old skeletons with you to both show off some of my older paintjobs, and to reflect on my growth over the past two and a half years.  An what better way to show off my growth in Bones, than with bones?

      More Below Spoiler:
      I am not a fan of repainting old models or painting another copy of something I've already painted.  I have so many minis in my collection that I'd rather keep moving forward.
      That said, I love painting similar things.  It's a great opportunity to reflect on your past projects and to compare where you started to where you've come.

      I'd love to see some before and after photos of some of your works!

      For the RCL Zodiac Challenge  - the Taurus not one of the more creative choices like Libra or Aquarius. 
      It is my Adopted Star sign because if Horoscopes are at all useful it is when they make guesses at problems or opportunities based on the personality connected to the sign. 
      by personality I fit  like 3 of 4  tendencies, and 0 of 4 of my birth sign. 
      knocked this guy out in a few hours this morning.

      My kid loves stealing my dice.
      So I'm painting some High Rollers as a bday gift later this summer. Kid is not old enough to paint with a brush yet.
      Day 1 was saturday - priming and base coats on the bases and D'Tenian. Maybe my first painting this year?
