Thanks! Somehow my post went through without some of my text - that chain is from a broken necklace that made its way into my bits box. It was just the right length to fill the distance between the integrated base and the lip of the round base I mounted the mini on. I thought it added a little extra steampunk flavor!

She's almost as cute as my wife. ;)


This is a well done mini. I love the color selection, you did an excellent job on the red hair, I thought. The purple pants and green coat are a surprisingly good combo. I also like how your saturation (that is, how intense each color is) is constant throughout.


The picture makes the highlights look chalky, but it looks fantastic in person, even close up.


Now how to get her and Last Knight's Lauren Silversail in the same game....

I'm so glad you like her, DispatchDave! Thanks for the compliments. The color scheme is similar to that on a PC I'm currently finishing up for one of the newest players in our D&D group, and I though it would work well for Sascha, too. I'm not terribly surprised the paints turned out a little chalky in the pictures - these particular colors used some paints that haven't aged well, and they've gotten surprisingly temperamental. I fought with the paint consistency quite a bit on the palette, but I'm quite happy with the end result - and I'm glad you are, too!


Dai-Mongar, she's a blast to paint, I highly recommend her. Sanael painted one last year, and I was delighted that we got another copy in the Vampire box of Bones so I could have a turn at painting her as well. The chain base is super easy to do, except for that last link. To make it look a little more like a continuous chain, I split a link in half. After the rest of the chain was glued down to the base, I added that link to close up the gap. It looked a little too bright compared to the rest of the model as-is, so I gave it a couple of coats of matte sealer, then did some washes to bring out the chain detail and mute the natural metallic sheen a bit. Have fun with it!

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:
      Comments, criticisms, and suggestions welcome!

      It's Krampus time! 🙂
      So, the challenge here was to use the Holiday Paint Set as the main/core palette.  Which turned out to be a no challenge at all.  This figure is pretty much calling for a certain palette to be used on it.  Never the less, the fun has been had with this one 🙂 
      All sorts of comments are always welcomed!
