This makes me want more Anhurians.  I love that part of the line.  Metal AND bones are awesome. 

 

Your work on the armor and the freehand on the shields is amazing (I'm lucky when I get a THICK line to look right, you did a really good job!). 

 

I love how each scheme really makes them stand apart, even though they are exactly the same figure. I'll also note the Basius stamp looks really good with them.

 

I think it's safe to say I like your work and how you thought about the basing.

 I love these guys, they're so ridiculously versatile - they can be good guys or bad guys (depending on the color scheme), soldiers or town guards...

 

 Before I sold off a lot of my minis, between these guys and the Black Legionnaires I had enough "bad guys" to put a small army on the table, all painted up in black and purple...

YYYYEEEEAAAAAAHHHHH!!!

 

If you're wondering why I'm excited, it's because I was part of the tag team that cornered Ron and browbeat... uh... I mean passionately campaigned for the Boneshurians so I like to see people having fun with them.

 

You did us proud.  You may also enjoy painting 20 or so Mountain Trolls.  Then I can get Ron to listen to my suggestions without having to torture-melt his final shreds of sanity with Polkaroo YouTube clips.

Aww thanks I'm blushing  :blush: The basius turned out really well. And making the broccoli under their feet into little mini-pins worked also. They aren't technically pinned or anything and seem very stable (sometimes bones and milliput don't always agree without a little help).

 

Howdy,

 

   My compliments on the diversity! Skin, livery, and shield art... That yellow is a bit bright though... Mayors own "show" troops?

 

Kev!

 

Thanks! As for the diversity, it was important to the mayor that his town guardsmen represent the diverse community that they serve *cough*. Yes that yellow is a bit bright. My soft yellow looks a little orange-y. They are nice for standing out though. Maybe the parade troops?

Thanks I owe you one! Love these guys (hence why I obtained so many). I think I have only 2 or 3 of the trolls, and I will probably try to avoid big group paints like this for a while though, it can be kind of draining.

 

It is incredibly gratifying to get so much feedback though, I'm glad everyone liked them, hopefully this will inspire others with their Anhurians!

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂

      It's that time of year for Orcs...but I already did that.  So it's time to get spooky instead!
       
      Here's my latest from Bones V (and recent promos) on that front.
