  • I used some Greenstuff to make a square insert for the "banner holder" guy. Not sure really what to do with it. I think I am going to make it into a glowing light. That light will also be in theirs eyes. As if they are strengthened from it.

  • Duel priming: Goat of Grey then an over lay of white. 
  • After having done this spray method a few times now I have learned to make the top a majority white.
  • I also put a coat of Terrain Khaki on the Skeletons

  • With the Zombies I decided on a green tone:
    • The body is first painted in Leather White in layers (1:3)*.
    • Then washed in a Green Wash(VJ). (1:3) 
    • Next I used Malvernian Purple in the deep recesses (1:2)

  • Here is the set of 5 none Skeleton miniatures.
  • The Ghouls, I did a kind of reverse of the Zombies:

That's it for now. I am adding the final touches to the non-skeleton ones now then going to approach them.

 

Questions and comments are always welcome. Additionally, tip or suggestions on the direction I should take are also welcome. 

 

Thanks!

 

 

*I thin down all my paints usually with Flow Improver - first - then Water. Example: a 1:3 ratio is 1 drop of paint to 2 parts Fi and 1 part water.

Why / How are some of the bases round but others square?

 

(I approve, BTW. I am a card-carrying Base Shape Anarchist. But asking because other tabletop gamers get rather fussed about it.)

Thanks y'all! They are turning out well!

Cause there was not enough square bases in the Box of Goodwill. Those are actually the bases from the Star War Imperial Assault Probe Droids, turned upside down and filled with sand. It kind of drove me crazy at first that they are not all matching but I got over it. They are going to be push around a table and handle punch, it's ok. ::D:

  • Finished up these guys, expect the bases as i want to do them all at the same time to ensure uniformity.
  • I added some blood stains and a more detail on the clothing as well as upper highlights on the skin, cloths, etc.

Nice progress!

 

Those skellies look like they're having fun.

FUN... Ya, strangely enough, once I painted their tunics the rum on my desk disappeared over night...  :wacko:

 

 

 

Hmm better keep an eye out on these guys then.

 

They look a bit hungry too, I mean come on, they're skin over bone.. I guess they will be raiding your kitchen soon..

Nah, I went out and bought 3 bottles of rum on Friday. I believe they will be appeased for now. ::D:

Weekend Progress:

  • The Shield is not done yet. Going over it with some black washes this week. Same with the boots.

post-13341-0-55233200-1477316822_thumb.jpg

  • I used pinstriping on the shield. Then painted the grey, removed the pinstriping and painted the VJ Bloody Red in the center 
  • Made sure to thin it down so I could see the high and low marks from my double priming.

  • These are the colors I used for the Skeletons.
    • Terrain Khaki then Brown washed it down.
    • Terrain Khaki again to bring it back up.
    • Then Leather White mixed in with the remaining Terrain Khaki.

      One the past few weeks I have been working on the Zombie Dwarf Thanes from the Bones 5 "The Dwarf King's Crypt" Encounter set.   I ordered two of these Encounter sets, as I wanted doubles of some of the scenario pieces, as well as double the 3 zombie figures that came with the Encounter.
       
      To help make their appearance seem more varied, I swapped a hand between Thane #1 and Thane #2.   I also trimmed the circlets off some of their heads to try and make them look more like average Dwarves.
       
      (Edit: For some reason he photos uploaded out of order, so the backs of Thane #2 are shown after Thane #3 fronts, and the backs of Thane #3 are shown after Thane 2's fronts.)
       
      Thane #2

       

       
      Thane #1

       

       
      Thane #3

       

       
      The whole shambling gang

      I was focused on speed, not detail.  This was trying to work them with as few colors as possible.  The more I look at them, the more they look lik ea value sketch more than a painted model, but I'm looking for where to go with them.
       
      Another thing I need to know, is what do you all do with eye sockets?  How do you paint them or what do you do with them?
       
      For the woman zombie, I used an ink pen and am kind of miffed that it turned out than other eyes I put way more time into.  I know I can use this in conjunction with painting, but just dotting it came out pretty believable.  I think some of that is the fact it's a dead stare, so of course, just a wash and a dot does fine.  I would be curious to know how any one else uses the pens and paint in combo.

      It's the weekend and that means it's time to paint!
       
      Got two zombies up for some WIP.  
       
      I'll just start by saying - leave me any feedback you've got.  I'm open to hearing and improving from it.
       

       

       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      #1 - Buster Jaws
      Wins:
      * Really taking to this whole wet blending thing.  I used two colors further apart from each other in value and tried to test myself to push them together.  There's two different sets of this in both the pants and the shirt.  
      *  I am trying to keep the 'mother color' as I've heard it called in mind.  Since it's Halloween month, I figured orange would be a good one.  It was  hard to add it in to nearly all the colors, but it did come out well.
      *  Trying to push the bloody look on his shirt with some Magenta ink looks nice and fun (and gross).  My daughter was not fond of these two, which tells me I'm on the right path.
      *  Setting a goal of about 30 minutes for this was a tough one, but I think given the time I tried to do it in, limiting my palette, and pushing the colors worked great.
       
      Misses:
      *  Skin color.  It's just not dead enough.  Need suggestions on your favorite zombie and ghoul skin recipe.
      *  Hair.  What the hell does dead hair look like?  How can I make it look more "fresh out of the grave" and less "fresh out of the salon"?
      *  I attempted value sketching with ink and then overlaying a really lite wash of paint.  Not sure I dig it, but it worked.  Barely.  No pun intended.  You can see the value sketch below.
       
      Mr. I Suck At Dabbing
      Wins: 
      *  This was actually the first of the wet blends so it didnt' get pushed as far, but the blending still worked great.  Speed, speed, speed!
      *  Knowing I have to give up a little of my detail to get a faster result is a good balance.
      *  I learned that this was where I could watch where the folds in the clothing were and step up the highlights in those area, which I applied to my following model.
       
      Misses:
      *  Eyes, hair, and skin again.  Not sure what I should have done different, but I know I should have done something.

      Next in line: 77049, Bones Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger.
       

       

      I tried priming with a 1:1 mix of Blue Liner:White Brush On Primer.  There were a few mold lines and casting valleys that showed up.  I put a layer of Brush On Sealer on them.  We’ll see how that worked.
