Bronze Bull and Chibi Clockwork Pony

Recommended Posts

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.

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.

      Been wanting to paint this one for awhile. Love the dynamic pose! Really happy with this one.

      Look at that winning smile!  He wants you to come for dinner....

      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
