Reaper Bones Shadow Hound (SKU 77366)

Recommended Posts

Very nice!


When I'm up to painting again, I need to do something similar to that but I'll be painting the Shadows (4 of them!). What colors did you use? I'm looking at going with Tamiya clear blue myself. thou I may experiment first.


Awesome job

It has been almost 2 months since I painted this, but I will try to remember what paints I used.


I am fairly certain I "primed" with brush on sealer, and that the primary purple used was Reaper 9023 Imperial Purple.  The darker areas has Reaper 9280 NIghtmare Black (a wonderful very dark blue), and the brighter blue was Nightmare back mixed with white I think.  Hope this helps.

I agree. This is an extremely nice version of this mini. Thanks for sharing the paints used.

I'm generally NOT fond of transparent minis (I have painted most of mine from Bones 1... opaque).  This is well done, and it fits together nicely.  That, and it makes me want to paint one similarly (scribbles into the seventh notebook of "minis I need to pick up at some point").

      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.

      He's about a year old now, but hey, I have to start with something here! Happily accepting critique (especially on photographing the finished work!)

      Happy Painting, y'all!

      Looking for suggestion on which of the Bones dragons would be a decent match for the Pathfinder Cloud Dragon for use in the next book of the Giantslayer campaign that I'm currently running. I have maybe a month or two before they encounter this bad beast.  He is considered an Adult dragon, size: Huge.
