Man, that first guy, I can't wait to get my hands on him! Easily my favourite from the KS! Why can't my Bones be here already!?!

Those are some cool paint jobs though, a bit on the shiny side but I particularly like that cross-hatching thing you've done on the rogue's... um... butt flap?

What the hell do you actually call that thing? :huh:

I painted them using washes from GW, not the Army Painter dip. I'm not a fan of those at all actually. Dai-Mongar: I think that's part of his gambeson/tunic. lol

 

Baugi: I like the Bones quite a bit, but I have noticed that the detail on parts of the models aren't as defined as they are in metal or resin. Still fun to paint and will look just fine on the gaming table. :D

Did you use the old GW washes or the newer ones?

 

I was quite the fan of the older ones. From the pics these look rather thick on the mini's, which was why I was thinking dip.

I like the first one.

 

The second one got to much wash or the camera could get him right.

I liked Devlan Mud. But it was so fast empty, that I didn't bought a new bottle.

 

Quickshade must not look thick and it is possible to use to much wash, too. I did it with a wash yesterday on an Orc. Needed to repaint some areas.

Love that first guy; he looks like an executioner, ready to do his thing.

 

The armor (boots in particular) look great. Do you mind sharing a bit more of how you did this? I need to find a good formula for armor. The Reaper metallics and I don't seem to get along. wacko.png

I used Ceramcoat Pewter, GW Gunbolt and Mithril Silver with several shades of Nuln Oil and Agrax Earthshade and Ogryn Flesh washes on the armor. For the leather I used a combination of Scorched Earth, Bestial Brown, Snakebite leather and Bubonic Brown.

I really like the Death-Dealer looking fellow.

 

Funny you should make the comparison, because I was just thinking that the rough highlights make this guy look like a Frazetta painting come to life.

 

Wow! Thank you! :D (at least I hope that was a compliment. lol )

Yes, Darius, it definitely was a compliment. The lack of refinement or smooth blending of the highlights gives the figure a raw, visceral quality that is reminiscent of many of Frazetta's paintings. I often find I enjoy the artistic abstract style that some people apply to to their miniatures; they look like they've torn themselves off the canvas and into the three-dimensional world.
