Hordes of Green Bones (Pathfinder Goblins and Tre Manor/Bobby Jackson Orcs)

Nicely done, and great job pushing yourself on the OSL. Green skinned goblins aren't my thing, but I like the particular shade you achieved.

The Green Guys Large & Small turned out SPLENDIDLY...the metals in particular look EXCELLENT. The red eyes might benefit from a dot of yellow for that glowing effect. That aside, GREAT WORK!

The gobbos look great. I think your fire good do with a bit more color, but otherwise I really like the traditional color scheme. I also really like your metal work on both groups.

Magnificent! You've kinda brought the 80's green back towards a more traditional, natural tone, and the bright, clean metals contrast really well with the overall dark paintjob. It's a nice combination of elements of style.

 

Like these guys a lot.

These are really good! How long did it take you to paint them?

Hmmm. I pretty much get all the base coat work done in one session when I batch paint, and then I can pick off a guy or two a night to finish up every session after that (but I know the goblins went a little faster overall). My average paint session is about 3 hours before my back starts to complain, so...

 

Roughing it out, my best guess is just under 20 hours, but that seems high. They were actually painted a few weeks apart, and they've been finished for a while, so tough to say for sure. If I had to guess I'd say 15 feels right but the math says 20.

Great job on all of them.  I like both the goblins and the orcs, you really brought those sculpts to life.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      I'm a little late in posting these, but this year I made a concentrated effort to try to paint orcs and only orcs for October, both to participate in the loose ceremony of "Orctober" and because I really need to finally paint some Orcs for the table. I started out trying some contrast paint for the first time and I didn't really like how the skin tone came out on the first model so I started experimenting. I tried many combinations of basecoat colors, thinning the contrast paint, inks, highlighting and glazing, and different washes. Not all of these even look that different, but I enjoy the subtle variations going on in the theory that, like humans, not all orcs are going to look exactly the same. It was fun experimenting, and I'm looking forward to painting the rest of the Orc crew next year.

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....
