Bones II Sea Hag: 77276

Recommended Posts

This is Julie Guthrie's sea hag, part of the core set of the Reaper Bones II Kickstarter.

 

To begin with, I cleaned up  the flash some, scrubbed her with soap and warm water, and primed her with Reaper's Brown Liner.  When that had dried nicely I painted up her flesh with a pale sky blue and layered first a brick red color, then a pale yellow on her base for sand color.

I've decided to give her a bright red dress.

 

I started by mixing a deep opaque rose pink, since otherwise trying to paint mostly transparent red straight on her would be an exercise in frustration.

I'm leaving the hanging tatters on her right arm because to my eye they look like seaweed, and I like the idea of green seaweed and red dress rags mingling at the bottom.  This is also when I noticed that she has a small octopus clinging to her left arm. Cute!

 

This is what the dress looks like with a true red glazed over the rose pink.

I never noticed the octopus before,

 

These are more detailed then meets the eye.

 

I like the seaweed approach.

I painted some assorted greens where I wanted the kelp to be.

 

I noticed that not only does she have a tiny octopus on her left arm, she has an even tinier crab on her right arm!

Someone recently commented how my figures look awful in the midst of being painted and then pull together at the end.  I had to laugh, because this figure is so far a really good illustration of the first part of that.

While doing an entirely different project I had some dull pale green, so I brushed some over her skin so it isn't quite so starkly one shade of blue.

I felt her coloration was harsh and flat, so I mixed up a transparent purple out of Phthalo Green and Quinacridone Magenta and washed it all over her and where her shadow would be.

I started to paint up her face and some of the barnacles on her.

I refined the shading with layers of transparent purple shadows and pale blue highlights, some whites on the barnacles and things.

The sculptor (Julie Guthrie) must have had fun adding tiny bits of sea life.  The last things I did were base coats on a tiny octopus (purple), crab (pink), and starfish (pale green).

Had some pale vermilion, so I softly brushed it on to highlight the red dress and added some to the crab.

To be honest, a lot of how this figure has gone has been based on whatever colors I happen to have mixed for other figures and this one is sort of lying around.  It is accumulating a paint job more than being painted, I think.

Whatever works to get them done!

 

I have that habit as well, if a mini I am working on needs a color I am using....

Paint On!

I especially love the diagram you did, pointing out where all the hidden details are.  That will be very helpful for the rest of us when we try to paint our sea hags.  ^_^

 

I also love how the eyes are so sharp and well defined.  It makes them stand out amongst the more fluid details of the seaweed and dress.  Very appropriate for the monster personality as well.

I took a rich transparent Quinacridone Crimson and glazed over the Sea Hag's dress.  It pulls the red colors of the dress together and makes them really deep and intense.

I washed some dark transparent brown (Raw Umber) over her sea critters and dress.

Then I painted lavender highlights on her octopus.

      I admit to getting a bit more than just the core set in the Bones 4 kickstarter....but I have decided to paint the entire core set before tackling any of the expansion sets. However, there are also a bunch of add-ons to do. Most of those are rather large... but we start with some mid-sized ones:
       

      These are the "Skeletal Monsters" add on subset. A Chimera, an Owlbear and a Manticore, plus a heap of monster bones / spawn pile scatter terrain piece. Also there is a sprue of different heads to you can convert to other monster skeletons if you like.
      I am keeping the sprue of monster skulls in the bitsbox for now.
      The wings are in a much more rigid (and presumably more brittle) material than the bodies that seem to be in the more rigid bones 3 material.
       
      Chimera:

      I made a 3D printed 70x50mm oval base for this one. These were hollowed out from the top so the miniatures own base fit inside, with some putty to fill them out.
       
      Owlbear:

      I made a 50x30mm base for this one.
       
      Manticore:

      This one has a 60x35 base.
       
       

      The bone pile scatter terrain bit.
       

      I have a bone to pick with you guys...
       
       
      How I painted these:
      Black undercoat with white ink zenithal sprayed on. After this was thoroughly dried out, I painted Citadel Skeleton Horde contrast (yes! Contrast paint! It works like a thicker ink or stain!) all over.
      When this was thouroughly dry, I drybrushed in varying degree with several bone-type colours, both yellowish and whiteish ending with Reaper Splintered Bone at the very tops.
      Details such as horns, beak, teeth, stingers and claws in various black and grey colours I mixed on my pallette.
      Base in Vallejo Earth followed by some tufts and my autumnal flock mix, finised with black rims. All of them done from basecoat in an evening including drying times.

      add-on subset from the Bones 4 kickstarter, 2017

      This is Reaper's 14048, Fatima, Nefsokar Cleric.
       
      Or rather it will be when you click on the links because she's super NSFW, front and back.

      There isn't a WIP thread because I couldn't figure out how to make one that would abide by the board rules. But questions or comments are appreciated.
       
      The images are hosted on Instagram so you can post comments there too if you like.

      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.

      Your panther has made a mess of my carpet! Come clean it up!

      The second mini I finished while a bunch a y'all were at Reapercon. 
       
      Very tabletop quality, but there it is. I'll do more to the base once I have a few more things done, I'll batch it out. 
      I love this mini; Julie Guthrie made it super gross!

      Hello everybody,
      here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range.  Hoping the photos are in proper focus.

       
      I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it.  Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!
