Recommended Posts

Good work!

You might want to take some black paint and do around the edges of the base though to give it a more 'finished' look...

That's probably something that I'll do today if I have the energy for it, but I just wanted it done so that I can move on to other things. I think I have a new victim already.

Great job! Verdigris and rust looks very realistic, kudos on those. And the base is simple but effective. Very well done.

 

Edit: As a little advice, orange spots, areas on or at the edges of dark blotches work well with very rusty metal objects.. The corners, edges and pointy parts etc. tend to corrode more so they could be more orangey..

 

Check these out for examples:

 

Rusty Blade 

 

Rusty Shield

 

Rusty Helmet

Awesome, thanks for the advice! ::D:  That's why I'm using the DDM miniatures, they're a cheap way to experiment techniques on. Next time I'll use more Citadel Ryza Rust on them.

      I have been rooting around in the boxes of yore, and this gem was found hidden away deep within a pile of ancient metal.
      This one was built and partly painted, but also slightly damaged. The wrists have been bent to reposition the drumsticks, and one of them had snapped off. Some quick repairs and a sloppy paintjob later, ta-daa:


      The "Arachno-Assassins" are a small lineup of six-armed skeletons that Reaper originally released sometime around the turn of the century in their white metal Dark Heaven line. They seem to still be available from Reaper, although none of them have made it into Bones PVC, which might be indicative of their sales potential. This is a pity as some of them are quite nice.
      I bought a few of them back in the day, and still have some in various states from bare metal through undercoated to painted-and-stashed-away-somewhere.
      Well, this one is done at long last. A bit crude, but still. Done.

      One step closer to having the full Dungeon Dwellers set finished! I tried a lot of different stuff here, most for the first time! Such as...
      -Full NMM armor
      -Freehand on cloak
      -Painted highlights on liquid
      -A unique gem in the shield (Watermelon Tourmaline)
      -A tiny bit of OSL on the eyes

      Hi everybody! 
       
      Let me show you my first tries at painting miniatures:

       
      I went heavy with the dark wash but it was on purpose in order to have an  effect "out of dirt".
       
      Don't hesitate if you have any comments or tips!

      The biggest model I've ever painted, I worked on it in sections and then assembled it onto the base when finished. I made very minor modifications to Kalarax herself, mostly inserting a lot of brass rods to support joints, and using hot water to bend the tail around onto the base (which is 25 cm square!) There was a lot more work on the base, using rocks, grit and sand to meld the Bones "ruined temple" into a larger scene with common elements from my Vampire army (see sig below)
       
      You may know the story of why the model is so big - apparently a communications error meant that it is twice the size it was ever meant to be? Because of this, I removed odd-sized base details like huge skulls and dinner plate coins and replaced them with "in-scale" objects like dozens and dozens of resin skulls as seen in the close up.
       
      My "huge bony miniature" recipe is:
      One can of Army Painter Undead Bone spray paint
      A big pot of GW Agrax Earthshade (or similar brown wash)
      A pot of Citadel Dry Tyrant Skull
      A large flat drybrush
       
      Let the model to the work! You can also use this to paint large numbers of smaller skeletons, of course.
