77148: Mangu Timur Bones 1

Recommended Posts

Progress on my enormous pile of Bonesium.

 

Steel: "Primed" in blue liner, drybrushed up with Honed Steel, then a light drybrush of Vallejo Metallic Medium. Washed with Blue Liner - Les Wash Base, drybrushed a little more, very quick rough lining with Blue Liner. Polished Silver applied very lightly, a tiny bit of Surf Aqua mixed into VMM to do one or two spot highlights. Vallejo Smoke added to some shadows to warm them up, only a couple up high, thinned as a wash over his boots. This gives a blued steel that moves from cool to warm, none of which you can see in the photo, but IMO it gives a fast job a lot more life.

 

Also, Drybrush was done so as to light from Up and Above the Shield. For highlight passes this was just a directional flick, when it needed a bit more coverage I gave more passes at the light source, less away. Final highlight drybrushes were only given where this directional lighting held, plus a tiny bit against this rule for ambient lighting and to maintain colour consistency. By starting with a simple rule in mind, again, I got a lot more looks for very little work. Best seen on the shield.

 

This was really quick, since that above process covered all and 99% finished the model. Army Painter Greedy Gold dabbed onto raised gold surfaces, much more carefully on the shield to get  a smooth finish. New Gold used to highlight. A little wet blending between the two, then LWB / Vallejo Smoke to shade sword and shield "steel" and all the gold.

 

Surf Aqua and Marine Teal dabbed on, then shaded with Blue Liner, then dabbed a little, drybrushed a little, tiny bit of wet blend to smooth the transitions on his cloak / surcoat / pretty dress.

 

Moth Green shakily dabbed into visor and, thinned, around visor for GLOWING MASK OF EVIL.

I like it. I am trying to paint my way through Bones goblins and kobolds. So tiny...

The Kobolds aren't too bad if you go for a dark scheme. I based them in dark brown and basically wettish-dryish-brushed them up to dark red; there's an awful lot you can get away with because they're so small... edit to add: that said,  have more to paint and I kinda start to sweat every time I think about it too hard...

      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.

      Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor!  Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini.  Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit.  I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him.  Pretty happy with the result.  You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
       


       
      I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather.  I think I was successful.  I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain.  Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.
