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!

      I am pretty new to the hobby having started painting in February. I finally worked up the courage to post one of my completed projects in the hopes of getting some feedback. So here is my painted Large Earth Elemental  from the Reaper Bones line. Any advise is very welcome as I would very much like to improve! Thanks!

      Like the title say, WIP. Struggling a little with the vagueness of the sculpt, but this is an early Bones, AFAIK, so making allowances.

      I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
       
      I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors!  Do I get bonus points for that?
       

       

       
      Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 
       

       
      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
       
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      Another Bones figure. I don't paint many non-humanoids, but I liked the way this guy turned out.
