The wood shield came out really nicely.  I guess I didn't realize that these bugbears had such itty bitty piggy eyes..


Yeah, if you stay within the lines so to speak, they are pretty small.  OTOH, the detail isn't very deep so you could freehand the eyes if you wanted.


Great job. Love the wood grain and metals. My only critique is the teeth and toenails are a bit too bright, and could do with some dirtying up.


If they were actually that white in hand I would agree with you.  Like most of my show-off pics I adjusted the color balance before posting.  I am willing to sacrifice off-whites to get everything else correct and that's pretty much what I did here.  Originally I had the teeth and nails as a bone-white, which would have probably photographed better but did not have a high enough contrast with the skin in hand.


Love it! Wish I could do wood like that.

I find that Dullcote sometimes reacts with my metallics, especially the silvers. Does this happen to you as well?

I know about it, and actually plan on it when painting...





I haven't had a chemical reaction, if that's what you mean.  However, since the dullcote reduces the reflectivity of the mini it's also going to make the mica flakes appear less reflective as well.  So yes, it causes a visual shift on the "metal."

      I bought this guy as a potential diorama subject, but he wasn't quite right.  I did a quick paintjob to get him off the table/out of the shame pile.  I recently found out how to make crystals out of sprue.

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:
      Comments, criticisms, and suggestions welcome!
