Absolutely everything about this guy is absolutely gorgeous! :wub:  The freehand, the detail work, the OSL, the spell writing - you nailed it all!

[...] I need to make a light box but we live in a small place without much room for storage. All of my painting stuff is on my dining room table atm. I have a hutch to stuff everything in when I am not painting but a lightbox wouldn't fit in there. I'll eventually make one and find some place to put it. [...]

For a while, I had a collapsible light box made from a cardboard carton. I cut the top flaps off; that became the front. I put Velcro tabs on the bottom flaps so I could detach them and collapse the box. From there, it was pretty standard: I cut windows out of three sides, with a 1-1/2" border, and covered the windows with tissue paper (white muslin or frosted plastic works too); and fit a removable roll of paper for the background.

 

I don't have it any more, but it served its purpose, and it folded up and fit behind a bookcase when I didn't need it.

That OSL is fantastic, also impressed by your parchment sculpting. I think the runes came out very well. Can't believe the freehand on his cloak, that is phenomenal.

 I may give that a go. Like I said, I usually take them outside for natural light but sometimes it is too bright and makes harsh shadows and also reflects off the minis. I need to step up my photo game! Having a collapsible light box would be great!

      Wizards of the Coast D&D metal model.
      From the year Two-Thou-sand (you have to say it like Conan O'Brien)
      Rescued from the Island of Lost Pewture, (aka my friends rpg storage shed)  and painted up. I love his goggles, I don't think you see enough of those on wizard minis. I can see a fireball coming.

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
