Three Bones and some bonus oldies

Recommended Posts

I painted up Horace Action Jackson (Bones 80023) up really quick (2 hours) as something different from Teronus the dragon. The NMM on the gun is the first time I have succesfully done steel NMM, yay. The white shirt was done to test the recipe for white (Reaper MSP Cloudy Gray, Misty Grey, Pure White) from paintdawg in this thread http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/52298-reapers-anima-tactics-and-one-ancient-ral-partha/ . I think it came out very nice, and will definitely use that recipe again. Maybe there are some Unicorns in my future.

Fulumbar (Bones 77011) was started at the painting faces class at GenCon with Lyn Stahl (Thanks Lyn, I really enjoyed your class!). I finished him a while ago, but I hadn't gotten my photo setup out until now.

Michelle (Bones 77022) is the one I like the least out of this bunch, the casting was a little flat in places, so I didn't spend a lot of time on her. At least she is fine for table-top, which is where most all my minis will end up. The picture actually looks better than the figure does in real life. That is a first.

And last I will show off some mini's I painted 20+ years ago using Testors enamel. I am pretty sure all six are from Grenadiers Julie Guthrie lines:

Wow even 20 years ago you were putting out some impressive table-top quality work that a lot of people would be jealous of. Thanks for sharing!

 

On a side note, I may have to steal your Action Jackson color scheme. I wasn't ever going to paint him up, but then my DM brought over a big box of blister packed minis and inside the box was a set of 3 umm "ladies of the night" that my DM would like painted up. It'll be a little diorama that Action Jackson will star in w/ these three ladies of the night, perhaps in a red light district.

Great stuff as always, Citrine! Those old enamels are really clean, too.

 

I was going to gripe that I posted that white recipe a couple weeks earlier than the dawg, but then I saw that I only alluded to it when painting Doug from Zombicide. Pretty much the same white, and it's awesome. Nice nmm, too. Took me a while to get steel down and I'm still not certain I have it yet.

Nice job on all of them. I remember those Grenadier minis, have a lot of them. Julie Guthrie's Personalities line from the early 90's. If it weren't for the change in scale they could hold their own vs modern figures.

Just loving the older figures, the colors (especially the skin tones) and the details. It's funny about enamel paint being used, and I was looking at an old RAFM catalog from 1994, and enamel paint is exactly what they recommend in their painting instructions, and talking about how long you need to let it dry before you do washes and such. Kind of crazy!

      My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone.  My recipient wanted something cute.  I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet.  Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. 
       
      I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything.  I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together.
       
      Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days.  It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rate George was going through weapons, he was either going to need to buy a new crate or go delving.  Maybe this time he'd just buy a box of old weapons, let the younger kids go fight the baddies.  These two look okay.  He grabs the weapons and heads out to the field.  When he reached the edge of the field he looks out over the fine red and tan soil and dust.  HEY GEORGE!  He yells out over the field.  In moments George shows up jumping and chittering.  "Hey George" he says again, "its dinnertime!  FETCH!"

      Needed a bunch of ghoul types so grabbed a bunch or bones ghasts - and added in one of the bones IV ghouls. Not sure how I feel about the ghasts, I turned out kind of not liking them and regretting the purpleish color. An relearning I should never paint groups larger than 3 - I don't have the attention span....
       
      The grey themed bones iv ghoul made me smile though -
       
      quick paints for a graveyard scene. Tried adding some grey mud to the brown.

      Look at this cute fellow!  But don't look directly at his eyes.  Too late?  Uh-oh, I'm sorry if you just turned to stone.
      Anyway ... this is the Basilisk, #77371 in Bones.
       

       

       

       
      The color scheme is inspired by the iridescent plumage of a bird, the White-faced Ibis (Plegadis chihi).  My folders of saved wildlife references include a photo of an ibis whose wing has golden, green, and orangey-pink metallic tones, and its head is more purplish-pink.
      I clipped away part of the integral base and built up this rocky base with putty.
      I added bits of two metal figures as the basilisk's petrified victims: the head is one of the 3 options for the Death Warden (Dark Heaven 03083), and the leg is from my Dwarf Shieldmaiden (Warlord 14379).  I imagine that the basilisk ate the rest of those 'statues' and left these for later snacking. 
      The grass is a preformed "Winter Tuft" product (dull yellow-green and black) with painted highlights, and the leaves are dried oregano, fully painted.
       
      I had used this basilisk as a demonstration figure at ReaperCon 2019 ... or maybe 2018 ... in my "Painting Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class. 
      It was all dark green, with just the front right shoulder area painted with highlights simulating smooth shiny scales. 
      It sat on my shelf since then.  I wanted to paint something small and relatively simple, so I mentally kicked around a few color schemes without conclusion until I rediscovered the image of the ibis last week.
      I spent a couple of hours wet-blending the colors, and then a few more hours glazing and stippling, shifting the scales green and pink and purple and yellow-ocher and orange, etc.
       
      Enjoy!

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      This is Thrasios, a triton ranger and one of the players in my D&D 5e Theros campaign. I built this mini in Hero Forge according to the player's description and added my own touches to it. For example, I was inspired by the neon tetra fish in painting the skin and I used Greek hoplite reference pictures to paint the armor.
