AcuteApathy's Paint Slaps

Recommended Posts

I would consider myself far more of a gamer than a painter. In fact, I got in on the Reaper Kickstarter specifically because I saw so much potential in their miniatures for use in -that- tabletop game. As a gamer, I therefore tend to paint for the tabletop rather than aspiring towards some of the amazing work I've been browsing through on these forums over the past few days. That's not to say that I don't keep telling myself that if I actually managed to force myself to sit and work on the same mini for days or weeks at a time that I might not be able to achieve something appealing...but there's a voice in the back of my head that always reminds me that (a) I am not a patient man and (b) if I don't try, it will be easier to keep fooling myself into believing it may be possible. :;):

 

So why this thread from a self-confessed speed-painter? Two reasons, really. The first is that I find that WIP threads are a great tool for motivation, something I often lack. The second is that there's always a useful comment or two that opens your eyes to something you hadn't considered or points you to a new technique and I'm a big believer in learning. So I hope you will all indulge me and feel free to comment. I take criticism fairly well as long as it's provided in a constructive manner (and since my wife hasn't seen this post, she can't contradict me! :devil: )

 

Enough blathering, here's what I'm working on at present. I decided that the first of my Bones from the Kickstarter to get a lick of paint would be one of my Trey Manor Ogres and one of the add-on Daemons. Both will find their way into armies of mine and the majority of my choices over the next few weeks will be selected for that very reason.

 

First up, the ogre:

One or two more highlights, particularly on the skin, and I'll be happy with the Ogre.

The Daemon has only had his basecoat and wash so far so he has some ways to go.

 

 

All told, that was roughly 3 hours of work this evening, not counting on the time for the washes to dry so not bad going at all.

 

More to follow tomorrow, assuming I manage to get back to the painting table.

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.

      Been wanting to paint this one for awhile. Love the dynamic pose! Really happy with this one.

      Look at that winning smile!  He wants you to come for dinner....
      Reaper Bones Burrowing Horror (SKU 77372)
      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
