(Update 9/23: Zombies and Swarms, oh my!)

Rather than make this first post a long page of doom, I'll just reply to it with more pictures and link to it here.

9/23 Zombies and Swarms

 

Hey guys! I figured I'd just start my own topic for my painting log as I power through all the bones I got!

I will be updating this as I paint more. :)

77012: Gnoll Warrior

My first Bones Mini! I bought him while waiting for the rest to arrive, to see what this was all about. This is out of the box and painted. Didn't know about washing them first. >.>

77169: Flesh Golem Painted as an Earth Golem, because I didn't get the forces of nature addon.

77171: Stone Golem See above. :P

77090: Mason Thornwarden This was an experiment in speed painting. I think I painted him in about 45min from start to finish. Not bad. He was just a breif encounter/NPC for my game the following night and I wanted some color on him.

A Goat from Crocodile Games...do you know how hard it is to find a goat/ram mini? Guh.

02764: Desmaendus, Gladiator An interesting thing, my D&D world that I've been running for 6 years now features a fantasy version of Egypt and a Grecco-Roman civilisation. To that end, no fair skinned PCs! Been a lot of fun painting all these characters. :)

02738: Helena Female Gladiator I Lurve this Mini. Really, really fun to paint.

89013: Ezren, Iconic Wizard When working on this guy, I tried to stick to a real limited pallet. I like the way it turned out.

77121: Liela, Dark Elf Wizard So far this is the only Bones mini I've toruble with. A lot of the detail on her was...smudged for a lack of a better term. Was a little bit hard to work on, so some of it got fudged.

14230: Sir Daman,Crusaders Hero I hate to say this, but Reaper desperatly needs some new armored female mounted characters. The Garrity ones that are out there are really, really dated, and the rest either don't have armor, or their horse is standing still. Hopefully we'll see some new ones with KS2!! That being said, I LOVED painting this mini.

77063: Duke Gerard When I knew I was making a mounted character for D&D, I knew I was gonna need a on-foot version. I opened my case of bones, and this guy was the first one I pulled out. I was THRILLED. Close enough. :)

77047: Goldar, Male Barbarian with Heaswap Another fun mini made even more fun with a little head swap. I admit, I did feel a little bad taking the nippers to him, but only for a moment. :)

 

Well, that's all I've got done for now.

 

Cheers!

Its funny, out of all of them I was like, WHAT a GOAT?!!! COOL!

 

I just got some pigs and chickens, jeesh theyre expensive. I really want a good polar bear and forgot where I saw one but it was like $12 and I was like ug, thats too much to spend on a polar bear at the moment.

 

I like that you did your gnoll as an albino. I find that horses are such a pain I put them off to later, due to make crazy barding designs and heraldry.

9/23 Zombies and Swarms

 

I decided to try something a little new this time, and went with some of the swarms, specifically zombies and vermin.

 

post-12464-0-82868500-1379977750_thumb.jpg

77128: Vermin: Spider Swarm: I was gonna put little hour glasses on their butts, but got lazy, and went with black and green dots to tell the two groups apart. I don't know why, but red spiders just works.

77129: Vermin: Rat Swarm: I only now noticed that I didn't delineate these two from eachother...oops. >.<

77127 Vermin: Beetle Swarm: I don't know if you can see, but these actually have a coat of color shifting gloss on them. Just turns sparkly teal in the right light.

77053: Zombies: These guys will mostly be used as minions, but I painted their loincloths different, just in case I needed to tell them apart.

77014: Zombies: I admit, I struggled some times trying to figure out what was cloth on these guys, but I made it work in the end.

 

 

That's all for now! Thanks for looking!

      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?

       
      More Photos and Thoughts Beneath the Spoiler:
       
      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?

      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 :)

      Worked on some critters. The leeches were painted Walnut Brown and highlighted in medium grey. Then I went over them with Turbo Dork - 3D Glasses. Then wash of Nuln Oil Glossy. Ended up with the slimy/glossy look I was trying for.
       

       

       
       

      Dire Crab, I was inspired by the color scheme that many have posted here, which i think they were modeling a Blue Crab which seems to be more green with many interesting colors in it. I painted the whole thing Ivory, and then glazed inks and washes up and tried to be careful on where I laid the wash/ink down. Some were just one coat, like Reikland Fleshshade for the edges of shell and claws. Also uded Army Painter green ink and Nuln Oil (for mix with green for darkest part on top of shell) for shell/legs/claws, Reaper Sepia wash for in-between colors and the underside. Only paint I used was bit of black at tips of claws, and Tropical blue watered down to thickish wash for blue on claws/legs.
