Hmmm will need to read up on the "prime white and add lots of washes" technique - i love the results!!!!

 

what i really like is the dried blood color on the sword - too often we see the wet blood look and it never looks quite realistic... but that looks EXACTLY like dried blood would - especially with the darker pooled areas and streaking and splatering - very cool (i mean really, what self respecting orc is going to wipe his sword clean between battles?) - what colors did you use?

 

your simple but very nice bases really help sell the figures - makes me realize i need to be putting more (any?) effort into this area

Thanks for the kind comments! :)

I'm glad you like it. The sword blood part is one of the pieces that I thought perhaps ended up a bit to much :)

 

They look wonderful but it is hard to tell from the pictures did they retain any of their transparency?  I like the results but would really hate to have a clear miniature and then cover that part up completely.

 

None of the mini's has retained any of their transparency. The fire elementals I painted earlier did retain some, but these did not.

 

 

Nice! May I ask what colors you used for the orc skin, I really like it.


This! I love the skin on him too.

 

 

Sure. I can't remember exactly but I started off with Army Painter Oak Brown mixed with Army Painter Uniform Grey. Then I think I switched for a lighter brown and a lighter grey when applying the highlights. Guessing on the picture I think I might just have added a lighter grey.... The start is Brown + Grey anyway. Then highlight with brighter colors :)

 

I really like the dried blood, ditto to what color did you use :)

 

I usually start with Army Painter Dragon Red and mix in a bit of Black. Then I add more red as I go along. Sometime I end with abit of Army Painter Pure Red. I accidentally spilled some Citadel Baal Red recently and I think it could make for a good blood compliment.

The skin on your orc berserker turned out great!  Mixing brown in your basecoat keeps him lively instead of looking like a stone statue.  The wash technique worked really well on the banshee, giving it a nice monochromatic look.  When I painted my Nightspecter I tried using a dark green ink for the wash without priming.  It works moderately well and mostly preserves the transparency, but obviously has its limitations.

      One of the first figures I pulled out of the Bones5 core set was this guy. Had fun doing him in non traditional colors. 
       

       
      The flash made him look a little brighter than it really is.

      I have to confess when I pulled this guy out of the core set I thought it was a goblin. In particular, it reminded me of a certain space goblin that backwards talks in riddles he does, mmmn.   So he's green.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Classic old school vampiress sculpt by Sandra Garrity.  Rawr!  She's a bit petite by current standards, so I built up her base just a bit.  But, oh, how that cloak flies!  And the ruffles edges on her shroud gown!

       
      I did the back in a cooler purple:
