These are great, and I love that you silhouette them with the stock versions behind them.

 

For the broom, did you just shave off the bottom of the broom or something else?

COOL STUFF! If the Undertaker was a Grave Robber...considering his Assistant , that profession has its possibilities, the scroll could be a shopping list. That aside, VERY CREATIVE WORK!

Awesome!!

 

I am looking at your mod of pitchfork guy, with that lantern, and am thinking that with a spear instead of a pitchfork he would make a fine low level "patrolling guard" in a small village.

Yes exactly I just whittled it down with an xacto. Might mess with it some more, it's not perfect. It looks fine from the front but if you look at her from the side it's too wide. Then again, there are some intentional sculpts that have the same issue, so I may just paint it and leave it.

That's a really great idea. I wish I had thought of that beforehand. I'll have to see if I have anyone with a spear head  I can take.

 

 

Great idea.  i think the gravedigger now looks like he is digging for buried treasure.

 

 

Exactly, I was kind of thinking of that too!

 

 

That is a great "book" and an excellent showcase of the diversity of Bones. I would suggest submitting these painted with their unchanged versions to the inspiration gallery.

 

 

Thanks!  :blush: I haven't submitted anything to the inspiration gallery yet. You'll definitely see these guys in the show-off though. I agree this was a very simple example of some easy modifications to be done that made these guys extra special and took very little effort or skill.

      Needed a bunch of ghoul types so grabbed a bunch or bones ghasts - and added in one of the bones IV ghouls. Not sure how I feel about the ghasts, I turned out kind of not liking them and regretting the purpleish color. An relearning I should never paint groups larger than 3 - I don't have the attention span....
       
      The grey themed bones iv ghoul made me smile though -
       
      quick paints for a graveyard scene. Tried adding some grey mud to the brown.

      Look at this cute fellow!  But don't look directly at his eyes.  Too late?  Uh-oh, I'm sorry if you just turned to stone.
      Anyway ... this is the Basilisk, #77371 in Bones.
       

       

       

       
      The color scheme is inspired by the iridescent plumage of a bird, the White-faced Ibis (Plegadis chihi).  My folders of saved wildlife references include a photo of an ibis whose wing has golden, green, and orangey-pink metallic tones, and its head is more purplish-pink.
      I clipped away part of the integral base and built up this rocky base with putty.
      I added bits of two metal figures as the basilisk's petrified victims: the head is one of the 3 options for the Death Warden (Dark Heaven 03083), and the leg is from my Dwarf Shieldmaiden (Warlord 14379).  I imagine that the basilisk ate the rest of those 'statues' and left these for later snacking. 
      The grass is a preformed "Winter Tuft" product (dull yellow-green and black) with painted highlights, and the leaves are dried oregano, fully painted.
       
      I had used this basilisk as a demonstration figure at ReaperCon 2019 ... or maybe 2018 ... in my "Painting Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class. 
      It was all dark green, with just the front right shoulder area painted with highlights simulating smooth shiny scales. 
      It sat on my shelf since then.  I wanted to paint something small and relatively simple, so I mentally kicked around a few color schemes without conclusion until I rediscovered the image of the ibis last week.
      I spent a couple of hours wet-blending the colors, and then a few more hours glazing and stippling, shifting the scales green and pink and purple and yellow-ocher and orange, etc.
       
      Enjoy!

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor!  Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini.  Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit.  I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him.  Pretty happy with the result.  You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
       


       
      I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather.  I think I was successful.  I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain.  Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.

      Another tabletop lady - tried stronger source lighting and focused on trying to smoothly blend the very pale skin. Also managed to make a reasonable base with the greenstuff roller this time  - so overall happy to try these things out on her, including the flowers.
