[Open]Deathsleet Bones


Recommended Posts

White, white, white.

 

Ok trying to get the best white painting technique for DS.

 

so I have tried 3 undercoat colours to see which effect I will like best. (DS is currently blue but I've now decided he must be white)

 

So a grey undercoat:

A khaki under coat:

And finally and my favourite after trial, a pinky, yellow sandstone colour (Deneb Stone):

I picked up the Secret Weapon 120mm oval Runic Mountain base for this gal. It has a really deep portion that will be ideal for drilling anchor pins. it seems the reports of her flimsy ankles were accurate so I plan on pinning her all the way up to her thighs. this will require some minor surgery though.

Oh, I thought you were going to put white over the blue. I'm certainly going for a blue undercoat on mine.

After some google research I decided a blue under coat would make him too "cold" and I want my ice / snow base to contrast the white scales :)

Thanks for starting an Open thread for this, OC.

 

I actually started in on a green Deathsleet in late August [to be different], but he's been languishing on the work bench for lack of motivation. For a while I just spent time sculpting things onto his base, when I should probably have been painting. I will try to get back to working on him before too long.

I look forward to seeing how eveybody else's come out. Maybe it will guilt me into finishing. ::P:

I started on my Deathsleet tonight after picking up some wooden rounds at a local craft shop today.

I pinned him to the base and then covered it with milliput and then smooshed in some old Bones plastic off-cuts and some column pieces.

My baby boy can now stand up on his own! Hooray!

I would recommend you glue his tail to the base it will keep him roaring at a party of adventures rather than a halfling ;)

 

I'd also like to make a :(. As your going to shame my attempt with some glorious painting spectacular that will leave me weeping at my ineptitude! ;) (thats set the expectation high!)

 

Looking forward to see what you do with this :).

It's too late for me to do that, he's far too firmly attached to his base and his tail hangs over the base.

 

Here's a photo of Deathsleet with a human-sized figure and a halfling:

I think he looks suitably intimidating next to both, he's still tall enough to be able to munch on the head of a human-sized figure.

I glued the feet on mine, green stuffed the base then bent him back and pinned the tail to the base. I did use a lot of super glue on his feet though ;)

But as I mentioned, my tail hangs way over the base. It'd be impossible for me to glue his tail to the base now. >_<;;;;
