Secret Sophie for Fealron

Rust effect is awesome! How'd you do that?

 

The shiny ice is also really great. I love all three of these.

After doing the metal on the axe and rim of the shield, I took my crappiest old dry brush, dipped the end in bright orange paint, blotted most of it off on a paper towel and then dabbed on where I wanted rust. I had no idea whether it was going to work and thought I could quickly wipe it off and/or paint over it but I ended up liking it. So there you have it, crappy dry brush, a paper towel and bright orange paint!

 

And thanks!

They look Super!

 

Nice job using the grub for the larval Ankheg!

I would never have thought of that!

I think you're fibbing on the brush and bright orange.

What I suspect you did is to make a miniature axehead of wrought iron, then leave it to soak for days in baths of high and low Ph, then left it outside for a while to 'mature'.

Probably didn't take you more than a few years...

Because, there's no way to paint rust as well as that!

Definitely more plausible.

I have to say that pictures really don't do these justice.

 

The Grub is awesome looking and my wife who isn't into the hobby thinks its really nice and her favorite out of the three. I love the bugbear, especially the rust and other little details but the grub stands out as something truly different from anything I have or would think of painting.

 

Thanks again!

      Presenting the Tin Man, another member of the Oz Gang from the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      While I did keep him fairly basic, I'm happy with how he turned out. Unfortunately my inability to photograph metallics properly has kinda ruined my piccys of him.

      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?

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of 02811, Dain Deepaxe. This one took me a little longer to finish. There is so many details on this model, it's amazing. This Dark Heaven Legends model was sculpted by Werner Klocke.

      Presenting my Beastman Champion and true child of Atmos (In my own fantasy setting I base some of my Games Workshop stuff in, Beastman are a race of former humans who were changed by worshipping an ancient, goat-headed god called Atmos. Occasionally, an actual goat-headed Beastman will be born amongst them and will be considered Atmos's offspring, they then get all the best food and stuff and grow up to be one of the leaders or shamans of the various tribes.) Who is from the Warhammer: Underworlds range by Games Workshop.
       
      I'm super pleased with how this guy turned out, but I really need to buckle down and actually finish one of these Underworlds sets.
