I had a burst of mini painting and finished a bunch of minis this month - my first time painting I think since December 2020?
Crystal Peaks Campsite
Bones Pygmy Mammoth (WIP) with toddler
Nolzurs Treant (WIP)
Bones graveyard terrain (WIP)
Bones High Rollers (WIP)
Not all of these have been sealed, some have not had matte coats yet.
The "fire" from the Crystal Peaks set got lost during priming.
Links to come when not in my phone. Surprised myself with this.
Two dragons from 2 different times, done with the same colors. Basically I had both of these on the table and I decided to just use the same palette for both
First up: the Panther dragon from Ral Partha. This guy is a long snakey one, his tail was very difficult to get to but overall fun to paint. This mini just seems to ooze stealth as she slips round alleys and empty streets making people disappear. This miniature has been sitting on my shelf for decades because I liked the art and the figure but I just didn't know what to do with it. I finally just broke down and said I am going to paint this!
Then on the flip side is the Treasure Rocky. This little tyke has acquired his first hoard and he is insanely protective and proud.
And he should be. I was looking at the reaper store and he and most of his pals are sold out, again! These are just a joy to paint and I
love painting them. they are just so entertaining and so full of character that no matter what color you add to them or what you put them in
they have to shine!
Hope you enjoy them!

Part of my Project Children of the Night.
Vampires roam the land, but fear not, there are those who dedicated their lives to exterminate them.
Here we can see how Ernst Holtz and his crew hunt down the evil creatures who were hiding in an abandoned cemetary.
Once nobles and commoners alike donated money to the Order of the Vampire Hunters, but since the Baron's son and his wife ruled the Barony the order was mocked.
People no longer believed in the supernatural.
Ernst suspected the Baron's son and his wife to be behind it but he couldn't prove it yet.
When he heard rumours of vampires in the area he assembled his crew and took out the now rusty Dampfhammer.
He would show them!
He would capture one of those vile creatures and show it to the people, they would believe again!
Once more the vile Undead would flee before him!
And maybe he could find out why the Baron's son and his wife wanted to get rid of the Order..
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?
More Below Spoiler:
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.
