I worked on some of my own stuff this weekend. Finished up a couple of the Bones characters. Still getting used to the new photo backgrounds. Hope they aren't to dark.

Nice! Hadn't seen these yet as bones, and you've done a nice job. Love that first guy. Furious that I have to wait for him to hit retail. :S

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.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Made this for a friend

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....
