Like most Otherworld minis, these wights are based on early D&D art, and I think they represent the subject well, despite some difficult mold lines on the arms that wound up looking all right with paint.

 

Anyhow, here's a preview before I commit to base decoration. The paint is pretty well near finished, but I welcome any suggestions to improve them.

While cleaning up some stuff I came across a very old wight figure. It has the same fright-wig hairstyle, loincloth, cape, and bent-knee posture, but with hands raised, on about a 10mm square base with a flagstone texture; so I don't think it's Grenadier. Heritage, maybe?

I'll put up a photo along side the others when they're further along.

The base style is right for the old Heritage stuff....

Are there any markings on the bottom of the base?

 

This guy maybe?

Yes, that appears to be the one, though the hands are a bit deformed on mine thanks to poor storage

I have all three on their bases now. I'm iffy on the Heritage wight since I glued its base to a 25mm plastic round while the other two fit into slots. I did some texturing with some Liquitex Blended Fiber gel to give a look of a mist swirling about their feet.

It's remarkable how well they mesh.

Next time maybe sink the integrated base in to the plastic base to avoid the mismatch. Alternatively matching the base texture or building up the base texture can work. Still, they look great!

      Alright.  So I want to share some old skeletons with you to both show off some of my older paintjobs, and to reflect on my growth over the past two and a half years.  An what better way to show off my growth in Bones, than with bones?

      I am not a fan of repainting old models or painting another copy of something I've already painted.  I have so many minis in my collection that I'd rather keep moving forward.
      That said, I love painting similar things.  It's a great opportunity to reflect on your past projects and to compare where you started to where you've come.

      I'd love to see some before and after photos of some of your works!

      So this past February, I got around to painting up these Bog Skeletons.  I was in need of more swamp zombies for Rangers of Shadow Deep and had these guys laying around and figured it was the perfect excuse for painting them.  Though I am a big fan of bog-bodies, I decided to lean more into a swampy look.  I figured they could be a bit more colorful and I got a strong vision of a green-tone horde of skellies.  Plus bogs are notorious for preserving bodies and these guys missing quite a bit of their flesh, organs, and hair.
       
      More Below the Spoiler:

      I had a lot of fun working on these guys.  They're very colorful despite being monochromatic and I think they're among some of my best work.  I tried out new techniques and pushed my skills.  In the end I have a group of evocative minis that really imply a setting beyond the limits of their bases.  I couldn't be prouder of these bone-boys.
       
      I also recently shared some photos of some of my earlier attempts at painting skeletons.  It was really fun looking back at where I started - especially since these models are very similar to the Skeleton Guardians.  You can check out my old skeletons in the Show-Off post HERE.

      Hello everyone, here's my second 06132, Skeleton swordsman. This Warlord Necropolis Grunt was sculpted by Kevin Williams. Like the first one I painted, the lightning on its sword is freehand painting. These huge swords are great canvas to elaborate all kinds of effects.

      Hello everyone! After painting my 16 Citadel skeletons, I wanted to try something different on this one. Here is my rendition of my first 06132, Skeleton with Two-Handed sword sculpted by Kevin Williams. The lightning on its sword's blade is freehand painting, I used Reaper MSP paint.

      Hello everyone, here are some pictures of a 02126, Arachno-Assassin sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I had this damaged mini for a long time and I decided to replace its upper left hand falchion for a sword from the 02455, Weapons pack IV. It was a very fun and easy model to paint. I intend to use it as a "boss" in a major encounter, so I painted it in red to increase the focus on it and point out how dangerous it is. The bluish bladed sword will be magical, maybe even cursed.
