Metal Kale Nolan with Bones treasure chest

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the kind words! I'm still fairly new to painting - this guy is for my own PC, and he was about the ninth or tenth figure I've finished so far. The trickiest part was getting him to not fall over. With a metal figure up top and just plastic and cork on the bottom, he was quite top-heavy. I ended up filling the base with Liquid Gravity, then stuffing a quarter under it all. He's rather stable now.


I've been looking through the other awesome threads in this forum, and it occurs to me that a decent background would be a civlised thing to do in my future pictures.

The crowbar belongs to Violet, the party's bard (played by my wife). He's totally in love with her and she has no clue, but she happily loans him her crowbar when he asks nicely. The crudely-painted, stylized 'V' on the front face of the shield looks crude because it was an after-market modification by my character.


The chest jumping-off thing is just for fun (and not at ALL because my Kickstarter package arrived the same week as the mini). Balor, my ranger, is somewhat modeled after Captain America, so I wanted to evoke that dynamic movement of The Cap. I also rotated his red, white, and blue colour palette into burgundy, turquoise, and amber, with a little indigo for the fourth colour.

Nice painting, but why is he leaping off the treasure chest with a crowbar? Does he know there's a trap?

      Some people might call it Minivember, though technically I had 23 days of vacation and just wanted to paint a mini every day. Some were finishing older minis, some entirely new, some were the size of a nailclipping. I present, my Minivember.

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. 
      If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler!
      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ?

      I finally finished this project! This was a mini I got a forgotten number of years ago with an order during October. Being as this is a more modern vibe the first thing that came to my mind first is: Make her a neon Witch! This was such a joy to paint. It was my first real attempt at osl and sheer fabric. I used quite a few reaper paints but I will give you the main ones that pulled of the effects that I wanted. If you have other question feel free to ask and I will share with you what I used/did. 
      Dominant paints used:
      Punk rock pink 09286
      Marid blue 89526
      Clear magenta 09098
      Regal purple 09238
      Clear purple 09099
      Nightmare black 09280
      Fair skin 09047
      Dark elf skin 09164
      Pure black 09037
      Pure white 09039
      Let me know what you think!

      Presenting a pair of Deep Gnome heroes (I'm calling them Harold and Alice) from Reaper.
      I got these to see what the Bones Black material was like on smaller minis (I was quite impressed), and while some parts could've gone better (One day I'll learn how to highlight dark blue) they were a lot of fun to paint up.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
