Hi all. I've got a few minis floating around that were painted when my skills were lesser. Been humoring the idea of touching them up. My finished minis are sealed with a coat of Krylon Matte spray. Any tips for touching up minis? Anything to look out for?
"On mounting a rising ground, which brought the figure of his fellow-traveller in relief against the sky, gigantic in height, and muffled in a cloak, Ichabod was horror-struck on perceiving that he was headless! – but his horror was still more increased on observing that the head, which should have rested on his shoulders, was carried before him on the pommel of his saddle!"
After watching Sleepy Hollow the other day, I wanted to share with you this Headless Horseman that I painted up a year ago for a Sleepy Hollow One-Shot.
At the time, Nolzur's did not have their unpainted version available, so I tracked down a Pathfinder Pre-Paint and decided to give it a makeover. The mini was a birthday gift to a friend who was running her first ever D&D game.

And the finished result!
It's still a bit drab, but definitely better than the original. And the recipient of the gift loved the present! Though our true adversary did turn out to be a flame-skull and the horseman barely saw any table time! It's still a great piece to memorialize a DM's first game!
Just pulled these out of the drawer. One of these Orcs was next in line on the Bones I Kickstarter Rewards image, so I’ll try to squad-paint them together to save time. They have been cleaned of mold lines. The spearman’s spear was very bent, as was the great sword. So, those got weapon swapped with basic weapons from Bones 3. Those are darker grey. Washed them, so just waiting for them to dry. Also had to gap fill spearman’s wrists.
This is my summer exchange mini for Rainbow Sculptor. The marching orders were for Bones and something witchy. I have fallen out of favor with Bones, but Bones Black seems better so I ordered a few of those. In the end I went with the shaman. On one hand the fabric was just a large block of color that needed broken up, but on the other the contours made it difficult to do anything too fancy. Thus she ended up with a simple pattern that I could manage to get into the folds of the fabric. The skin was mixed from 09658 Christmas Wreath and 09694 Retro Emerald, just because I'd never used them.
The third set of humanoids from the Lost Valley Expansion of the Bones 4 kickstarter is the Orcs of the Jade Fire tribe:
Featuring an all-female cast of hard bodied primitives, with abs to break rocks on and buns of bronze. The barbaric splendor of these women rival that of the bodybuilder cast of any 80's Sword and Sorcery movie. Apart from the fact that said 80's movies usually feature male bodybuilders with any females being more of the centrefold variety both in body type and costume budget.
The burning question would be: what do the male members of the Jade Fire Tribe look like? Do they have the physique of Steve Rogers before or after the serum was administered? Or are they more like bloated ant drones that barely can move while the womenfolk do all the work? Inquiring minds want to know!

The skin is Citadel Contrast Space Wolves Grey over a greyish white on black zenithal undercoat. Look closely and you will see the spatter pattern a slightly bent airbrush needle tip will leave...I need to buy myself a proper one, the cheap chinese ebay ones I have been using are really not very good at all. Good thing the Vex is coming.

aka She-Hulk. Also the one model in all of the Lost Valley with blatantly metal-looking parts.
44096 Jade Fire Champion #636
44095 Jade Fire Warrior #635
Thirty Five dollars and a six-pack to my name! Time to break out that old Black Flag album again.
44094 Jade Fire Spearman #634
Either the naming of the Bones version of this mini is a bit off (especially since the metal version is called "Spearmaiden") or this one has the worst case of Moobs I have seen since Meat Loaf's character in Fight Club.
Look, it's the stripper! Wheeee!
