Siri, do you do wet blends? Those cool color shifts and patterns have been a trademark right from the beginning with your stuff. Really nice color contrast and placements.

 

This guy does have some wet blending...I've only recently started learning to do wet blends. So most of my early stuff are not wet-blended =P

Lovely work, as others have said, the fur is just beautiful. A rich, golden colour and that blend is smooth as silk. Would you be willing to share the colours used? Did you wet blend, layer the different shades and finished off with accentuating single strands?

The base is also very cool, however I would add some acrylic gloss gel to the water with a bit of talcum powder (or anything that frosts ist) added to simulate the ice cracking.

I don't remember the paints, sorry. This thread is actually six years old and I cannot recall what I used.

 

I did a bit of wet blending, and then dry rushed for the highlights I know that. I didn't do as careful detailing back then as I do now

Thanks in any case. Didn't see that it was an old post! Still a great miniature!

      Hi guys!
      Yesterday I visited Salute London, a big wargame convention. I was lucky enough to meet some of my favourite Mini makes in the UK and pick up various orders and Kickstarter Pledges. And Philip from Bears Head Miniatures was nice enough to let me have a prototype of the undead rhino that is featured in his upcoming Kickstarter. I hope I will able to do it justice!

      On the base is a Bones Mummy fighting for his unlife with an approaching snake, luckily for him the Rhino tries to crush it.

      Hey all, the first bones 3 mini I have finished painting (the base will get some love once I got some new supplies). I have to say I don't do a good job getting rid of mold lines but I'm happy it is finished. Ended up not doing much with the stone cause I only have a two grey shades and figured there was enough grey already. Does anyone have a good idea for the elephant? I kind of don't want to make him the same grey but lack imagination. Sorry for the crappy phone pics....I need to clear space for the photo booth.

      Also known was "Wait, hippos really are purple?"

      These guys are some of my favorites from Bones III.  Sadly, the "Isle of Dread" style game I was running ended long before these arrived, but I was recently reading "Elephantmen", which was a good inspiration to get these done.


       
       
      King Hippo.  His skin was already done when, during a paint jam, a buddy pointed out, Hippos are not pure grey.

      I had to greenstuff back in his necklace, and carve out a nostril that wasn't cast properly.  I only noticed mid-paint.  And of course the zoom shows the mold lines I thought I got...



      Obadiah Horn.  The simplest one, but I like his stance.
       

       
       
      Ebony Hide, the Elephant.  I went with the obvious Zulu theme for him.  I couldn't figure out if his club was meant to be a bone or a wooden knobkerrie, but I went with wood.
