Crates of various sizes

Recommended Posts

Here are photo I thought I'd post of more minor projects I finished up.  The one on the left is a Hirst Arts crate beside the bones 2 crates.  I probably could have defined the bones ones more but they were all quick paints.  They both have different feels.  So I think they are both useful for variety.




Thanks for looking.

RMS Grey Browns Triad to start with.  


1) Base coated Shield Brown.

2) Then drybrushed with Driftbrown.  

3) I then thinned woodstain Brown down to wash consistency and applied all over the wood to darken the color.

4) I then thinned Brown liner some to a wash consistency and spot applied it to the areas between the planks or inner corners.  

5) I then dry brushed back up with Shield brown leaving the inner edges alone.  

6) And a final drybrush with Driftwood brown on the edges.


Over all it is a very quick process.  The longest part was waiting for the washes to dry.


Hope this helps.

      So the reason I had spare blackstar rifles was that I decided a proper pirate captain needs a sword. 
      So I built this guy with the bones 3 weapon pack, and the spare head off of the bones 4 bulldog armor. 
      His sword has much fire, and his reactor a distressing blue glow.

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.

      Here are a trio I painted up quickly for the same encounter as the smaller ones - result is a bit cartoony but serviceable. I think I got the eyes on the purple one to look nice and insecty though - used red with a pale green metallic thinned down over it.
