Ever since Dr Who, I have never been able to look at statues in quite the same way...

 

Edit - forgot to mention - Great job!  They really look like statues and I can only imagine how cool it will be when you replace the "standing" statue with the "moving" statue!

I really like those.

 

You know if you placed them at the four corners of a stone roof all facing out, they could all wake up walk two steps and squish unsuspecting adventurers.

Excellent idea with the moss. It'd be hilarious if the players found them face down in a pile of ruble and they made their way onto their feet.

Thanks, everyone.

 

Jkemeister: I agree. Statues of all kinds must be treated with suspicion. But I still think that the Silence win the creepy monster contest.

 

WerkRobotWerk & Type2: I like the way your minds work. My players will not thank you for giving me ideas.

The moss effect is something I first saw when Buglips did it to the base of Kaladrax. Paint the stone as usual, then put a little wash in random areas that would be in shade. There are actually three wash colors I used in there: an olive green, highland moss, and a blend of the two.

And a close up of the results

      Hi everyone, 
       
      Here are pictures of the third skeletal beast in the series. 77931, Skeletal Manticore sculpted by Julie Guthrie. Painted with Reaper MSP paint and mounted on a 2 inches base.

      Hi everyone,
       
      Here is the second skeletal beast I painted last week. This is Bones model 77924, Skeletal Chimera sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I added dirt and moss on it to make it look like it's freshly animated. The leaves are dry birch tree seed hulls. I picked them up in the forest and painted them before gluing them on the base. As a reference, the base is 2 inches wide.

      In February, I started work on painting up my next Dreadball Team.  This time it was the Kalyashi team from Dreadball Extreme and the Warden.  They turned out pretty well.  These models were rough.  Most were missing ears one was missing an eye.  (Hence the one having an eye patch.)  A lot of the armor details did not carry over from one side of the model to the other.  This was especially true on the legs.  You would start painting a piece of armor only to find that it disappeared on the other side.  Overall it made it really frustrating to work on and I found myself just trying to get a decent tabletop quality.  I tried the best that I could to make them look manageable.  Not my best work.   I will say that with all of my experience with Mantic, these models are a rare bad batch and not indicative of the quality that I normally see from them.

      The last weekend of April I was able to finish some projects that I started way back in February.  First up I have a pair of Bones Skeletons.  I had used the two of them to test a couple of different paint options for a different project and thought that I would give them their time in the sun and finish them off.  They are not perfect, but I think that they turned out ok.           The photos didn't turn out great.  I will admit that I was in a rush as I was trying to get these models finished and posted for the RP Challenge.  I took the time to fix one of them, but I decided to just leave the others as is.

      Events over the last few months have kept me away from my painting table.  Between a shoulder injury, a busy time at work, a loss in the family and a grandma who fell out of bed and broke her back, there has not been a lot of time to paint.  I found a bit of time around Easter to do a quick paint job on the Easter Mousling for my Mother-in-law.

      I think that it turned out pretty well.  The freehand on the egg was a bit challenging as I tend to be horrible at it.  Lack of fine motor skills.  I only have the one picture of it as I finished it the night before Easter and the only photo that I got of it was taken by my wife.
