The idea with the beard (and most colors) I took from another painted version of him, I found in this forum. I can't find him again, sadly not everyone writes the name or product number of the mini in the postings.
I wanted the moustache not so thick, more like Errol Flynn. But Frank Zappa is good, too. :-)

I didn't clean this mini before painting him. And had some problems while painting him. I hope after putting varnish on him, the color will not get off.

Today I completed 77067: Virina, Female Demon




It is interesting what you destroy if you make fast corrections, you get a lot of others... Please try to ignore them, I will remove later the bonewhite dots!


For the legs from the ankles to the knees I used yellow pigments.


Here is the nude!!! front part only as a link:


I will check if it is really necessary to make a correction to the eye, they are not really visible. So I thought...

I do not know if it is possible to paint somehow the nipples. I someone could throw an idea. :-)


Together with Sophie and Bella, she is my favorite Succubus.

I started to paint her a long time. Her weapon make me not proceeding the paintjob. Yesterday I finished her.


77119: Sinessa, Hellborn Sorceress


I think I will repaint her skin sooner or later. I need first a good wash for white. I heard Vallejo Pale Grey should be very good for white, but I can't get it in the 200ml bottles. :-(

Darkrasp, Evil Priest


I put this also on the Paint my Bones! Facebook Group.


I do not like the egg-thing, but I don't think it will get better if I start to put another 20 or more paint layers on it...

Just saw, I didn't paint the finger nails, I think I should change it.

Thanks, I'm proud on the work on the scythe. And there are many layers of paint on the scroll until I got satisfied.

Next mini I start completely new, I need to try to use more water in the paints.


Here is a drybrush work of the


77099: Nightspectre,

fotographed in the dark...




I hope to make soon more pictures not in the dark!

77099: Nightspectre

(this time with daylight)


It was painted with drybrushing mostly. I have another Bones version and a Metal version. On the other Bones version I will try it the next time without drybrushing. But better don't wait for it. :-)

looking good.


I think they would both benefit form a nice base.

They deserve it


Yupp, they should get a nice base. But I'm very lazy about basing. I think need a skirmish system where I would use them and a theme. In the moment I don't play much, I hope it will change soon.

Soon we will play a western skirmish. My Mounties will get correct bases and after Western, I hope we will try other skirmish systems, where I can use some of my bones.


But the main reason is, I have more fun in painting in the moment and spent to much on Kickstarters to get a good assortment of basing material.


Few weeks ago I bought static grass and made my static charging unit (don't know how it is called in english) out of a electrical fly flap and a tea strainer:



77161: Ghost King


It look like I need more water in my paint.

Yeah, there are many cheap alternatives for basing. I'm often looking for new and other methods, for painting and basing. I'm not in the mood for basing in the moment. But I think you are right that I need to base the minis. I promise I will not let them with these lame bases forever (most of them...).


77075: Khael Stonekindle, Dwarf Wizard


I don't like to use the name Wizard for Dwarves.


Most of him I painted a while ago. Today I made the final details.

      Painted this guy in an aquatic theme.

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Or, as I like to call him, Smaul Hollywood.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂
