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.

      Here's a simple one for you.  Painted the Great Worm as a Purple Worm to the surprise of no one.

      Couldn't find a better thread to post this in.  Has anyone else ever had mold grow on their minis?
       
      I have a set of bones that have been sitting around for about two year. They were super glued to a reaper base. Baking soda and super glue were used to blend the integrated base into the round base. There's also a layer of cheap craft paint as primer.
       
      These guys have been sitting on my painting table in a former sun-room for about two years. 
       
      I noticed the bases had yellowed a bit, which I've begun to notice on some of my other older bases using baking soda as a basing material. But when I checked on them I noticed small fuzzy looking orange tufts. 
       
      I can only assume this is mold.
       
      The only things I could think of to cause this are the baking soda or the water used to clean my brush before priming. 
       
      Has anyone else seen this?

      Hello again!  I'm back with an assortment of Bones that are serving as my Rangers of Shadow Deep solo party.  Decided I wanted a classic fantasy look, but didn't want to fall into the cliched green cloak look.  With that stipulation, I settled on a more autumnal color palette, and tried to keep this aesthetic across the entire party, without anyone looking like they were wearing matching uniforms.  I'm pretty pleased with the results and I tried to push myself with each mini.  What do you think?

      I have only played a few scenarios of Rangers of Shadow Deep, and I'm honestly not sold on the whole solo-game thing.  But if the game has done anything for me, it has given me motivation to paint more and has given purpose to some of the things I already have painted.  I already ordered some extra gnolls and ghouls to meet the required numbers and will likely be showing off some monsters soon.
       
      Which character do you like best?
       
      What games have motivated you to paint those piles of shame?
       
      Feel free to share your own photos!

      This is the Hill Giant from 77939. I have not finished the cat yet, so I only have the Giant here. I have been trying to add various colors (layers of color for one area/color) to my minis to make them more interesting. Following some of the painters here and other utubers and painters like Angel G. I used an Imperial Purple base for this entire mini and then did Troll Flesh as next base for skin and then built up reddish skin tones for skin and then went lighter tan. Hope you enjoy, I had fun painting him.

      Hello Forum friends, I'm being quite productive lately  Gonna show you the most recent mini I painted: Small world Sophie.
      Ok, I have to say I'm in love with this chibi minis, I'm gonna buy lot more cause I find them so funny to paint!
      About the paint job, well, anytime I manage to paint Sophie, my color choice for her wings is always Violet (or purple if you prefer) and so why do not make my life easy and go for a complementary palette? So, purple and yellow. Easy peasy...
      Anyway, this is the result, I'm quite happy of her, I hope you'll like her too.
      As always every C&C is more than welcome :)
