Bones II Eregris Darkfathom, Evil High Sea Priest: 92620

Recommended Posts

Continuing the aquatic theme in my miniatures, here's the Bones version of Bobby Jackson's Eregris Darkfathom, Evil High Sea Priest, not yet in general release.


He's got a lot of wonderful robe layers vaguely reminiscent of scallops in their shells, some nasty looking weaponry, and a tiny, difficult-to-reach face inside a fish-shaped helmet.  We'll see if I can do him justice.


Anyhow, to start with the usual prep for Bones: Scrub with a soft toothbrush and dish soap in warm water, trim off some of the flash (I only did a bit of that), and prime with Reaper's Brown Liner, the wonder paint.


I mixed up some ocean blues and started in on the lowest layers of his garments.  His base I painted in a peachy orange I had lying around on the principle that any old warm color works fine as an underlayer for sand.  I also tossed a bit of the orange lightened up on his face tucked in the helmet there.





I mixed what I would call an extremely medium green and painted it over the sort of snakeskin hanging down his front and the fish helmet.





I mixed up an ivory yellow and painted the fish mask teeth, the knob on the end of the fish mask lure, and the sand on the base.  I also brushed a much warmer olive green loosely over the medium green parts, but it may not be easy to see.



Here is the priest's face.  It really is well sculpted and molded, but wayyyy in there.



The last thing I did this painting session was paint his weaponry black. I'm not sure if I'm going to paint it silver or leave it blackish, but either way a black underpainting is the way to go.

I took a dark, transparent violet (mixed from Phthalocyanine Green and Quinacridone Purple) and washed it over the figure to harmonize the colors (some work still needed).

I brushed a few lights over the blue with some paler violets.

Some more subtle blue-grey highlights on the bottommost clam-oyster ruffle on his garments and on the green fish-mask and fins, and some lavender on one of his many odd finlike layers of clothing.

I painted some interference blue paint over his shoulder armor and interference violet over his breastplate.


Normally when painting interference pigments I paint over smooth black.  Interference paints are transparent from most angles, and the black gives a good dark background for them to glow richly from. 


Since this underpainting was uneven brown-black and white, there is a more mottled, chaotic appearance under the glow.

      Hello everyone, today is a Pathfinder day. I did my best to paint it as faithfully as possible respecting the original artwork colors. This is the metal version 60136, Aglanda the herald of Razmir sculpted by Bobby Jackson. It's also available in Bones plastic under sku: 89040.

      Hi there, first post here from me. I am fairly new to the hobby, and have been painting for exactly one year now.
      I am working on the Kullhaven box set so i have characters to rescue in RPG's, the sculpts are great and the faces are full of character.
      I know my photography leaves a lot to be desired, but I am working on it. =)
      The farmer



      And the Strumpet, which is just a fantastic word if nothing else.

      Please feel free to share any tips or tricks, I am still very much a beginner.  But I am keen to learn.

      Hello everyone, I'm updating this post with more pictures I took of the Irontongue Duergar Squad I completed recently.



      The enlaged ones, side by side.




      From left to right on the first picture; 03883 Dark Dwarf Irontongue Priest, 03899 Dark Dwarf Smiter, 03898 Dark Dwarf Pounder, 03892 Dark Dwarf Striker.
      All four Dark Heaven Legends models were sculpted by Bobby Jackson.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the last Dark Dwarf I painted for my Duergar squad. I converted a 44109, Enlarged Dark Dwarf Smiter sculpted by Bobby Jackson to make it look more like a Striker. I changed the original hammer head for a 3D printed two sided meat tenderizer and added the eye patch. Thanks to Derek feedback, I really pushed myself on this one. I think I spent something like 3 or 4 hours on the beard only. It is standing on a 2 inches square base. The ball and chain are made of Milliput and a 3mm hobby chain. Your comments are welcome. Group pictures coming soon.
