Here is a selection of Bones I have painted so far. I bought five original ones prior to the bones being shipped to see what they are like.

 

Here is the ghost.

you can post them however you want provided they don't have any nudity, you have to link those for everything else I would suggest embedding the pictures so we don't have to follow an external link.

and Good start on the bones.

On second thought I noticed your using flicker, in that case just copy the bbcode and paste it directly into your posts.
and you will get something like this.

Well it's been fairly hectic here - I have painted some more Bones figures so far but having generally been putting them on suitable bases. So far I have done some of the smaller bugs (spiders and scarabs).

But I have moved onto some of the human figures.

 

Here is an updated version of Fimbur on a new base.

The completed Undertaker/Gravedigger these have yet to be varnished so they are a bit shiny.

And finally the Blacksmith

The model do look a bit different close up using my phone camera but they do the models justice I think. I need a bit more practice on eyes, and highlighting and shading but that was the reason I invested in the Bones in the first place.

Another update and I have finished another three bones.

 

The first is the lady of ill repute. Quite happy with how it turned out with inks and drybrushing.

To finish some more town people I then painted the innkeeper.

This time I used my version of army painter quick stain(a watered down light oak varnish) which does the same job. After a bit of drybrushing I was happy. Not sure about the eyes but he does have a angry look about him.

 

And last but not least for now is the maid with the broom. Once again used with my version of quick stain.

Overall I am very happy with how these turned out. Next up some more zombies and skeleton methinks.

And comments welcome.

As stated in the last post here are a few pics of the most recent bones I painted.

 

First off here are two skeleton spearmen (). I like these models.

Here are two zombies one with a green wash and one dipped. I like how these turned out.

Finally here is the Mom & Kids model. They are missing a lot of facial features but I will use them as peasants in a game where an evil rhinoplasty warlock lives.

I love the chipped paint look on the skeletons - how did you accomplish it?

Hi thanks for the comment. That's the first time anyone has asked how I painted something!! I assume you are referring to the shields? If so I painted them with the base colours and then did a highlight. Finally using a very thin brush I used a old GW paint and put the few marks on them. You have to take a risk too many and it wouldn't look right too few and they look like new shields.

 

Hope that makes sense.

It does make sense. I think the effect is very nice. We'll see if I can pull it off as well as you did one of these days!

Well it's been a few days since the last post and I have manged to get a few more models painted. Not quite sure how many I will have done by the end of the year but I need to speed up a bit. I have two more kickstarters due for posting as well as possible rumours of a second bones kickstater!!

Anyway first up is then Barmaid (77085) I have been trying to finish the townsfolk off to populate a Hirst Arts models which I will post soon.

Following this is a 77165: Hellakin Goregutter, Halfling Rogue. Not that pleased with this as I didnt get inspired with the colours to use.

That's it for now comments welcome. I intend to put the product codes in when I get a chance but using the iPad isn't as easy as a of for that.

      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.

      I've finished another project that was on my to-do list for years.
      First the pics, then some more words:
       

       

       

       
      This was a special resin figure from ReaperCon 2014 (April 24-27 that year) -- sculpted by Bobby Jackson, given to attendees who paid extra for the Artist Banquet on Saturday night. 
      I was supposed to paint him for Reaper's studio collection after the con, but I got distracted with other stuff and he fell off my list.
      He had the SKU 01529 for a while, and although he is out of production now, his clone will be back soon in Bones 5 as part of the "Dreadmere Personas" Core Set extra.  I'll try to remember to revise the tags of this post when he has a new 77xxx or 78xxx number.
      Ian Markon (Kuro Cleanbrush) painted a spectacular rendition in 2015 as "Knight of the Blood Moon", with red armor and wings.  You can find it here on the Forum by searching for "01529".
       
      So far in 2021, I've been finishing some figures left over from years past ... and getting points in the Reaper Challenge League for it.
      This guy earned 3 points for the April theme of "No More Sunrises" (vampires and other nocturnal or subterranean monsters). 
       
      I couldn't decide on a color scheme so I started painting a cool grey monochrome as if he were in moonlight. 
      I was going to add a warm light from behind, too, but I just kept going with the cool monochrome all around. 
      I concentrated on the differences in contrast and texture among the materials: armor plates and trim, cloak exterior and interior, sword (blade, crossguard, pommel, hilt), gems, skin, hair, teeth, stone steps, skull, etc.
       
      I spent extra time on the face, as always, such as getting the blends very smooth. 
      The eyes are sculpted very large, which gave me freedom to manipulate the expression.  I painted the upper lids a fraction of a millimeter lower, to get just the right half-lidded look.
      And in order to make him seem more feral, I painted his scleras darker and irises lighter.  I did this a few years ago on a half-orc Pathfinder figure I painted (Skreed Gorewillow).
       
      The specific colors were Blue Liner ("black"), the cold grey triad (9172 Stormcover Grey, 9173 Coldstone Grey, and 9174 Icy Grey, now out of production), Misty Grey, and Pure White.
      The blending was somewhat challenging, because the greys changed value from wet to dry!  Stormcover Grey dries a little lighter, and Icy Grey and Misty Grey dry a little darker.  On the back of the cloak, for example, I would see a spot where I wanted to deepen the shadow, and Stormcover Grey looked perfect while wet, but then it would dry lighter and the "shadow" disappeared!  So I had to add Blue Liner to the Stormcover Grey, and trusted that what looked too dark at first would look right when dry.  This phenomenon made it fun to paint little streaks of Stormcover Grey on the interior of the cloak or the sword blade, because the streak would go on invisible over the black, but then appear grey as it dried a few seconds later.
       
      Enjoy!

      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!

      I have put together a warband, mainly Reaper models, for use in Saga Age of Magic, Frostgrave, Oathmark etc. 
      The winged vampires were quite simple to paint. Primed with Israeli grey from Vallejo, then drybrushed with Rakarth flesh and Pallid Wych flesh. Then a wash of carroburg crimson and a highlight with Pallid Wych Flesh. 
       
      The armoured vampires are mainly crimson knights from Reaper with a couple of head swaps but mostly straight and un-kitbashed. They were primed with Vallejo red brown then I used contrast flesh tearers red and a bunch of washes for the armour. 
       
      I enjoyed painting these and the next step is to add some more winged vampires/succubi, and some mounted vampire knights.
