77015, 77231, 77232, 77233: Tabletop Bugbears with Quickshade

Recommended Posts

They look good!

The 3rd from the left in the top pic threw me for a sec, as he looks like he has 'Orc Nose'....

Must be the way the light is hitting it...

And by Quick Shade do you mean the Dip, or the 'inks'? Both are called quick shade, and the 'inks' are enough not like inks that I don't like calling them inks. So my own personal parlance is Dip, and Shades. :lol:

 

 

Looking good though! Gotta love done minis!

Nice! For some strange reason, I have a soft spot for Bugbears. Just love them! These are nicely painted!

I meant the dips (although I usually use a brush). Strong tone specifically.

I use the "inks" pretty much on a daily basis for my normal (not dipped) painting; I usually just call them washes. The strong tone and dark tone are very useful.

I use the brush method as well. I just find it more convenient than needing to find a place to fling the excess off the mini.

Wait, some people got their CAV stuff? I haven't heard anything in a while about CAV. Are they finally shipping?

 

Those are just the ACE early bird ones.  you can tell because they are white. I got them ages ago now...still haven't painted one.  but hey, they made it to the paint table.  After that it's just a matter of time (often months, but still....).

 

Latest update on the grey CAV stuff from the KS was just last week I think.

Same (and less chance of me flinging a (nother) fig across the garage when the pliers slip....)

I actually dipped one of these guys and then brushed off the excess like I do the others.  It worked ok, with just a bit bigger puddles.

Can you tell which one?

 

Only problem I've had with the dip is that I end up mangling the cans trying to get the lid back on once you get some buildup. Which is why both my dark and strong tones are in jelly jars now.

I don't know if I can, but if I was going to guess, it would be the left handed one.

 

 

My first back from the dip, I dipped one, and brushed the rest, because I was looking for differences and I couldn't find differences between them... but I'm still curious, because based on how much I see the stuff shrink, I'm wondering if I am brushing enough of the stuff on. Maybe soon I'll get the photos up of my recent Dip experiments.

      A bit of a departure for me today. Chibi, a style formerly known as Superdeformed before Anime became popular in the western hemisphere.
       
      I am not particularily fond of Chibi; that superdeformed cutesy manga look that has insidiously permeated the pop culture of today. Sigh. What is the world coming to?
       
      Now they also have infiltrated my beloved Bones...
       
      During the Bones 4 kickstarter campaign, they offered chibi versions of some of their existing minis as free additions to the core set as social stretch goals, adding them one by one as their target numbers for facebooks shares, retweets, tagging pictures or other interactions on social medias were met.
       
      The full six chibi miniatures did end up In the Bones 4 core set. As I am sworn to do the entire Bones 4 core set, I am honour bound to paint them all eventually...gah!
       
      So...I painted the chibi Sophie for starters.

      Sophie the succubus is the Reaper Mascot of more than 20 years, and versions of her have beed used for promotions and to mark special occasions since way back when. She has had figures in every Bones kickstarter. In Bones 4 she had this chibi and also a normally scaled mini.
      I went for the classic red devil look, with the opaque but shiny black eyes that I find most fitting for devils and their ilk.
       
      Is it cheating to do the eyes in gloss black?
       

      ARRGH! A giant-headed devil woman! She must be put to the sword!

      just wishing to put this out there, but what are the chances of warlord coming back, hopefully with the success of bones reaper can really hammer our full fledged army boxes. i only ask this as warlord was my very FIRST miniatures game and heck it was the first miniatures i ever bought and wish to see it again even if its just bones army sets or something. maybe even a third edition possibly. 

      i mean am i alone in wanting warlord back?

      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.

      Last new post for the day.
      Here is another BONES Tick.  I have 2 more and a queen.
      This is the 4th painted one, and I painted it while I painted the centipedes.  I wanted some bright colors and bright markings.
      C&C Welcome.
