I wasn't great about taking a bunch of pics along the way so far, but here are what I have:
 
Both minis got a soap bath with warm water, Dawn dish soap, and a good scrub with a toothbrush. Once dry, I primed the pony with Reaper's Brush on Primer - which I had to scrub off with soap and reprime three or four times before it would not bead up. Then they both got a coat of Brown Liner:

As you can see, I picked out a 30mm base for the pony. I haven't dug through my bases yet for the bull.
 
I then hit them with a blotchy coat of Ancient Bronze, then Lava Orange, and then Bloodstain Red.

I am trying to post more things to my G+ feed so I can repost here, but I am struggling getting image links that the forum will use. Any tips? All solved now. Thanks!

What I do is go to the pic in my album, click on it to open it, right click "open image in new tab" then copy the URL and paste that URL into the Forum via the "Image Link" (little green box on the tools area above the text area here). Just have to make sure that it ends in .jpg and it'll work fine on the forum itself. Or I'll download from google to my PC and just go to "more reply options" and make it an attachment.

I tried that and was not having luck with the links coming with jpg at the end. Your post gave me the idea to try and add it manually, and it worked!

My wife says that the pony needs terminator eyes. Looks like black with red dots is likely for the future of that one.

 

As for the bull, it won't fit on a 2" round base and I only have one 2" square base (that doesn't really fit thematically). I may just leave it alone for now.

I got a flat wooden disc from michael's for mine. it fits nicely.

Yours inspired me to paint this one first. Not sure on going with a larger round base, though. I use my minis for gaming on a 1" grid (and this will likely be used as a gorgon). I do have a square 2" dungeon floor base from the Reaper Swag Bag, but I am torn on using it or not.

      Most of these aren't up to date and I've changed bits of them here and there since these, I'll be saving those shots for the finished product, but hopefully you enjoy the journey.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.

      Starting with a dry fit of 19507 Spiders of Emrith Kul encounter set.
      Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
      Backdrop is a black cardstock.
