So, life is crazy right now, but I painted this guy. I haven't had a chance to get good pictures yet. So, these are what we have to deal with. ;-) I was practicing ageing, I wanted him to look like he had been there for a while. Let me know what you think!

 

Updated photos... in hindsight, I think the fletchings should have probably been done a different color than green...

Don't take this the wrong way, but I'm not sure what im looking at.

 

Going by thread title and description, mainly, and extremities sticking out, I assume it's a corpse.

 

Under that assumption, it looks really good, though I really think better pics are in order...

 

*edit* upon further examination and being more sure I'm right on what it is, I like it! Looks like he's being absorbed into the ground cover!

I like the ageing effect you have going on.  Personally though, I think the body is too obscured by it.  A little bit less might get a better results at this scale.

I will definitely take better pictures tonight. I may even pull some of the leaf litter off of him if it is still obscuring him too much.

I used some secret weapon leaf litter, and some of the Army Painter Ivy. I used typhus corrosion on the armor to make it rough looking. :)

I just picked up some Secret Weapon washes. I'll have to look at their other offerings! thanks!

 

And though I'm not too happy with Army Painter primer on Bones, I do love their...foliage?

Spice cupboard for the win!!

 

 

The foliage looks great, it's just a little too much for this piece, IMO. Since he's been freshly killed, he shouldn't have that much stuff all over him. If he were a skeleton, or otherwise obviously long dead, it'd work a lot better.

 

That's just my .02 of course.

Hah! I haven't gotten to paint in DAYS because of work! I was desperate! I needed a fix! 

 

Not to mention I had to fix all of those other posts!

 

I will update with better pictures around 2300 when I get home from work. :P

 

Chaoswolf, I wanted him to look like he had been dead for a while, that's why he's rusted.

Excuse me a moment while I try to remove my foot from my mouth....

 

Ok, better.

 

 

In that case, I think you've done an excellent job. Looking back at the pictures, I can see what you were going for. Nice work.

      The Dragonman something from the Bones 4 core set. This mini actually comes in many parts and with a selection of different weaponry and hand-held things. I went with the bucaneery sabre and dagger on account of the high boots looking a little piratey.  Also, this is what the render shown in the KS looked like.
      I went with a bronze / gold armour and my new darker flock mix. Turned out well in my opinion at least.
      The base is a 3D printed 35x25mm lipped oval as I thought a 40mm round was too large.

      This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2.
      This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis.

      These scenery bits are from the Bones 2 and 4 kickstarters respectively. I did them quick in my go-to rock paint scheme. An uneven coat of dark greengrey over a solid black undercoat, followed by a heavy drybrush with a sandy yellow, and finished with a lighter drybrush of offwhite. Quick and easy! The colours give a much more satisfying rock finish than just using the typical monochrome greys.
      Too bad the colours are not really showing properly up in the photos.

      On each end are the Pillars of Good and Evil from Bones 2, the rest is the subset "Grave Things" from the Bones 4 core set.
       

      The Pillar of Evil to the left, the Pillar of Good to the right.
      They are made in the older Bonesium PVC material, and as you can see it shows. No amount of the hot water trick is going to correct that warped listing there. I have not seen the metal versions so I cannot compare them with the Bones or even say that the metal ones do no list in the same way (though I doubt that they do.)
       

      I would have thought it be more fitting if these came as a pair of each and not just one of each, but there we are. They are sold as single packs in retail anyway.

      These are from the subset "Grave things" in the Bones 4 Core set. Listing again! I was unsuccessful in trying to unbend the batty one as it bent back over time. Should have left it longer in the hot water. Oh well.

      Again, they should have come in a pairs of each.
       

      It seems Bones really is not the best material for boxes with square corners and all that...must be that corrupting influence of the Warp.

      This one is OK and untainted by the warp though. The loose books are a nice touch.

      Tiny glyphs and imaginary writing that looks much better (and way more impressive) when not magnified, as does most of my painting. The page is actually about 10mm wide. The black symbols and all that are done with .01mm and .02mm pens.

      klatoo...berata....nih*cough cough* Ok, then, thats it! *takes book, thunder rumbles* Hey wait a minute!  I said the words! I did!

      From WizKids' line of Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures comes the "Treant", which is D&D-speak for Ent, or Treeman if you are more familar with Warhammer.
      I find this mini looks angry and scary, not like a benevolent living tree shepherd at all. A malevolent one, on the other hand, fits the bill precicely.
      And seeing as I have been painting undead halflings and there is a strong historic connection between Halflings and Treemen as allies; so undead treeman.
      Hence,  Torchwood the Furious here.
       
      Go on, you know you want to go on:
