 Ooh, I like her...  Great colors.

 

(There are damn few "tiefling" minis out there that don't look all dark and "edgy". )

 

 My one critique would be that it might just be the angle of the pics, but the lining on the left side of her robe below the belt looks a little bit too heavy. At first I thought it was supposed to be black trim on the robe.

Thank you for the critique Mad Jack!  When I looked at it in person the darklining in that spot is barely visible.  But then I looked at her more carefully, and realized I had forgotten to paint the bottom of her staff.  Oops!  I just corrected that this morning and I also reduced the darklining in that spot.

Very nice choice for the skin tone. And the colouring of her staff looks very much like that of my hiking stick.

Well done!

      The Fourth was with us earlier in May. Paint up some sort of mini as a Stars Wars character, background extra, droid, or spacecraft. Harder mode: Do some conversion work on the model first. (Add a light saber, swap a sword to a blaster, cobble together a ship from random objects Froggcident-style...)

      My first post here! I thought the bones 4 ape men would make good soldiers for my growing demonic army. Still thinking of tweaking some of the smaller details and considering also painting the armored one as a barlgura. Tried to give some texture by dry brushing orange over a black base coat for fur. I also tried to dry brush around the eyes to create a deep red glowing effect.

      I needed some more henchmen to fill out my frostgrave parties, especially some archers which I seem to have in very short supply.  So i Found these while rooting through my drawer of 'I dont know where this goes and put a pretty basic paint job on them.
       
      I needed some minis to fill out the challenge for this month so here they are:


       
      I did try a little freehand on the soldier's shield and played with some of the brighter colors for the dwarf twins so they would stand out.  In the end, basic minis to liven up the frostgrave maps
       
      Thanks for looking!

      This piece has been sitting in my mini drawer for quite some time.  I'm not sure where it came from or why it showed up but it appeared and desired paint so it got some.  I am thinking of making it the grand mentor for the legion of Justice and Caeke to counter the dread influence of Fatimus but we will see.  In the mean time, I dont know too much about this mini other than it was produced by Ral Partha in 1991 for TSR Its pretty and it was fun to paint, but my google fu is not strong enough to find the name of the character and the base has no further information.
       
      So without further Ado, my dragon Elder

      From the fourth Bones kickstarter (no, I have not received my shipment yet, not even a shipping notice). This minis was sold online and given as a freebie if you ordered for more than USD 40 from the Reaper site in February this year. When I ordered it I was not aware that this mini also is in the kickstarter. The January freebie owlbear was not a KS mini, so I assumed the Febuary one would be seperate too. So I will be getting another of this mini with the KS shipment.
      So anyway..."Bones Black". a darker grey, much harder, less unbreakable, and heavier material than the regular "Bonesium" Bones material. This new material was a bit of a surprise when announced not too long ago, as there was no mention of it in the Kickstarter. They have gone and produced many of the kickstarter minis in this new material (as in all the expansions, but not the core set). I understand that this material requires a different type of mould which is more expensive to make and maintain, so the Bones Black minis will be slightly more expensive at retail than comparable regular Bones. Reaper is on record stating that they chose the name as it sounded cool. The minis are not actually black, just dark grey.
      My first impressions of the material is that it is actually quite similar -but not identical- to both Restic and the newer Boardgame plastic such as used in HATE. It is very hard and diffcult to cut or bend when at room temperature. I suspect there is ABS in the PVC mix here.
      However, it still responds well to heat (near-boiling water) and goes rubbery soft and reposable just like other PVC minis. When soft, it is comparatively easy to slice with a scalpel hobby knife. Just like Restic, it needs a little time for super glue to grab, and when it does, it grabs firmly. It is easy to drill, and what little mould lines there were came off easily enough with said knife. Not quite as easy as polystyrene, but much easier than original Bones. They could actually be scraped, which does not work at all with regular Bones.
      The troll came assembled, and needed gap filling. Reaper has also addressed this issue, stating that the new material has slightly different tolerances and shrinkage than the original Bones. They have been adjusting the connection points to compensate to avoid such gaps going forward.
      At any rate, my impressions of the Bones Black material are mostly favorable. The biggest con would be that is seems slightly more brittle than the original Bones (that can be thrown around without taking damage), but I have not had any issues with neither this Troll or the Owlbear, so I can't really say.  When the KS arrives I will be able to look at many more minis in this material, so we shall see whether this will be any issue.
      The quality of the details do seem to be rather better than earlier Bones, and this is the reason Reaper has introduced the material in the first place. Again, the smaller minis from the KS will be the proof of the pudding.
       
       
      Should have lit it better...


      And it is BIG! Actually as tall as the Storm Giant, and larger then the new GW Rockgut Troggoths (aka stone trolls)

       
      A quick and sloppy paint job. I started with a black undercoat, and painted the whole piece with a very dark blue. Then I drybrushed the trunk of the body with three different purples, with red on the stomach and chest. I drybrushed the arms and head with Vallejo Nocturna Shadow and ditto Cold Flesh, the belt and loincloth also in Shadow, with Deep Forest Skin for highlights, mixed a bit on my palette for a couple of shades highlighting. The claws and nails were also done in the greens. The leg of cured meat or large pouch (you choose) in browns.
      The crystals and eyes I did in Scalecolor Tesla Blue and Carribean Blue with Reaper Aircraft Grey highlight. This was a bit sloppy as seen in the photos.
      Teeth in Aircraft Grey.
      Base as usual, and it turns out my new Vallejo Black is really glossy.
      All in all the mini took less than an hour to paint.
