Alright. So I want to share some old skeletons with you to both show off some of my older paintjobs, and to reflect on my growth over the past two and a half years. An what better way to show off my growth in Bones, than with bones?
More Below Spoiler:
I am not a fan of repainting old models or painting another copy of something I've already painted. I have so many minis in my collection that I'd rather keep moving forward.
That said, I love painting similar things. It's a great opportunity to reflect on your past projects and to compare where you started to where you've come.
I'd love to see some before and after photos of some of your works!
So this past February, I got around to painting up these Bog Skeletons. I was in need of more swamp zombies for Rangers of Shadow Deep and had these guys laying around and figured it was the perfect excuse for painting them. Though I am a big fan of bog-bodies, I decided to lean more into a swampy look. I figured they could be a bit more colorful and I got a strong vision of a green-tone horde of skellies. Plus bogs are notorious for preserving bodies and these guys missing quite a bit of their flesh, organs, and hair.

I had a lot of fun working on these guys. They're very colorful despite being monochromatic and I think they're among some of my best work. I tried out new techniques and pushed my skills. In the end I have a group of evocative minis that really imply a setting beyond the limits of their bases. I couldn't be prouder of these bone-boys.
I also recently shared some photos of some of my earlier attempts at painting skeletons. It was really fun looking back at where I started - especially since these models are very similar to the Skeleton Guardians. You can check out my old skeletons in the Show-Off post HERE.
Hello everyone, here's my second 06132, Skeleton swordsman. This Warlord Necropolis Grunt was sculpted by Kevin Williams. Like the first one I painted, the lightning on its sword is freehand painting. These huge swords are great canvas to elaborate all kinds of effects.
Hello everyone! After painting my 16 Citadel skeletons, I wanted to try something different on this one. Here is my rendition of my first 06132, Skeleton with Two-Handed sword sculpted by Kevin Williams. The lightning on its sword's blade is freehand painting, I used Reaper MSP paint.
"Always two there are, a project and another project" (Master Yoda, sort of...)
I've experienced, that it helps productivity to work on two or three projects at once. When you run into a wall with one project, you can just switch. At the moment, my projects are slowly finishing a few minis I began during RVE classes and my fairy challenge. The little fairy is currently on hold, though, because of needs for supplies. So I need another project.
I've decided to face the end boss: Barros. And Tempest. You see, they fight as a tag team.
My miniature painting journey began a long time ago when I got the old LTPK1 for my birthday. Also, I got Barros and Tempest, making them my oldest yet unpainted mini at the moment.
There was a first attempt a few years ago when I painted the Pegasus in ghost white. Didn't like it for whatever reason. Repainted him pure white. And that's as far as I got.
I've never painted a mini this big and I'm still not sure what to do with this ugly flight stand (although I already had some good inputs from you guys here in this forum). I'll aim for slightly above get-it-off-my-desk-quality, with a lot of white, gold and blue. This sculpt just screams "lawful stupid, and he got away with it, too".
Will this be fun? I don't know. But it needs to be done! We're starting from here:
