Starting this one too.. the wings join through the body (pics later) aren't fitting right.. it looks like the socket has some extra bonesium in the bottom corners and so the plug of the other wing+leg won't seat completely.. there also appears to be a large gap in the chest where the plug side (wing + leg) joins. This also appears to be cause either by the plug not seating properly or the bottom part of the neck or the upper thigh on the wing+leg section needing some minor reduction for fit

I would boil the end with the female socket and then use a properly sized flat-head screwdriver to press on the walls of the socket to stretch them out a bit. Failing that just go at it with a hobby knife. If you take off too much you can simply pin the counterpart.

That is a simply awesome model. Think boiling and cutting is not such a problem. That model will be easy to model compared to the old school multi part metal dragons. Really looking forward to receiving my bones. I'm in the last 5000. I wonder who will be the last to go out of the door!

Even though Nethyrmaul is not as big as Kaladrax (is there a comparison shot somewhere?) i think the sculpt is much more interesting, to me anyways. I think he looks a lot cooler. Can't wait to get my hands on mine :)

I took these this afternoon. Both models are assembled as they came out of the box. Kaladrax is a bit up-stage compared to Nethermaul, but not by much. The size difference is substantial.

 

Please excuse the bad lighting. Natural light is your friend until you try to take a pic of a white object by an open window.

Nethy seems small, and he's smaller than intended, but I think the concept art scales out to give approx. 8.25-9.25 inches tall (including base) going by Sir Forscale (I gave an inch of play). What does he measure out as?

      Since I haven’t had a WIP in a very long time, I thought this mini would be perfect for it. I plan to paint her up for a Christmas gift for a friend and figured to keep me on track I’d do a WIP. 
       
      I have a few minis in progress she’ll be my main priority after my Darksword Stephanie Law Bard. I prepped her and primed yesterday after the humidity finally dropped.
       
      My current projects in various stages on my desk. 

       
      And just the pinup after some prep work 

       
      A few places I could have spent more time on but figured I’ll prime and see what stands out. 
       

       
      I used army painter matte black primer followed by Tamiya fine white primer. For the bits on her base I left them in black since she will be the focal point no need to use white on them, it’ll help the colors be a bit more muted. 
       
      And finally my quick mock up for color checking. I usually just print a stock photo and use my paints over it to plan the general scheme. 

       
      Now to finish up my bard then onto tackling her flesh. Since she’ll have a hint of sheer with her stocking I needed to be sure the color for her skin and the sheer works and won’t lose the effect due to the color choices. 
       
      Feel free to post C&C throughout, or ask questions. I’m always happy to share what I can. I’ll do my best to share the steps I take and colors used. 
       
      Happy painting everyone.

      I finished some townsfolk recently, they snuck into the queue ahead of my halfpainted drow squad. 😮

      Here are 2 Bones 3 ogres I finished in the last few months, Reaper Ogre Matriarch (SKU 77568) and Ogre Chieftain (SKU 77566) . The detail on the goblin was very soft, and my painting progress stopped for a couple of months.  But now they are finally ready for some tabletop fun.

      This is the Reaper Bones Familiar from the Stone and Familiar set (SKU 77390).  He will be an important bard NPC in a Savage World game I am hoping to run sometime soon.

      Since even cultists love fashion, I went with purple marble on this one. This is the Bones version of the 77139, Altar of Evil sculpted by Bob Olley.
