Combining painted Bones with some Hirst Arts and kids!!

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this fits the show off section so I posted it here instead. I have been making a farm board for my two sons for a few months and it has coincided with painting some Bones so I thought I would show off the creation here.

I always like to see parents getting their kids into the hobby. I try to do the same with mine. Great looking terrain!

 

Don't know if this is useful to anyone, but I picked up a large box of styrofoam-like bricks at Michael's Crafts that are the same style and size as the blocks in your pics. They weren't very expensive (price escapes my memory at the moment), but they were already base-coated so I was able to spray paint them without them dissolving. They look almost as good as Hirst, but were much cheaper.

Blasphemy! I have actually used those for some builds I knew we're going to take a beating, literally. For normal builds, I will stay with my Hirst blocks.

Yeah, they're not high quality, but for quick walls or general use terrain they're pretty handy and cheap.

      So the reason I had spare blackstar rifles was that I decided a proper pirate captain needs a sword. 
       
      So I built this guy with the bones 3 weapon pack, and the spare head off of the bones 4 bulldog armor. 
       
      His sword has much fire, and his reactor a distressing blue glow.

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
       
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.

      Here are a trio I painted up quickly for the same encounter as the smaller ones - result is a bit cartoony but serviceable. I think I got the eyes on the purple one to look nice and insecty though - used red with a pale green metallic thinned down over it.
