Quick,  reveal your wood formula so that you can write it down as an excuse to letting n00bs like me know how to make wood look so fine!

The key is putting down a dark brown. Dry brushing with a medium brown, dry brushing some more, dry brushing with a off white, dry brushing even more, dry brushing even more, and then dry brushing with some white. Then using some washes and glazes to bring the yellows and chestnut colors to come back. Then some army painter hard? Tone into the cracks and shadows, and then some carefully dry brushed highlights with a light yellowish color. There you go. But I don't remember the exact colors.

Darn my plan failed,  thanks though the techniques are as helpful to me as the colors.  Even if my goal was to get you to write down the recipe

Colors I know I like for wood

 

Old GW snakebite leather and vermin fur

Old GW chestnut wash 

(if you don't have them, check out coat d arms. I haven't tired them myself but I've heard they are the same company that made the old GW stuff I like. Been meaning to order a few of my colors that are now on their last legs.)

Reaper Russet brown

reaper griffon tan

Army painter strong tone

and any reddish to orangish to yellowish brown that I can mix with distilled water and Reaper brush on sealer till it's a nice even translucent color that I then can dap on spots on the mini and blend into other colors I just laid down, giving it a grainy effect.

 

Note the kind of Browns you want are colors that in some contexts read a Brown and others read as Red/orange/yellow.

      Now that my Bones 4 order is here, my backwards brain decided it's finally time to paint the fire dragon I've had in my box of shame for a year and a half! I don't think I can claim that I'm "new to painting" anymore, but this is my first dragon and by far the biggest mini I've attempted thus far. In order to actually paint more things I like instead of saving them until I've practiced or become good enough to attempt them, I'm trying to adopt the mentality of trying at least one new technique with every mini I paint. Hopefully this will get me out of my comfort zone and into some new styles and skills. 
       
      The focus of this guy is going to be blending, both wet and feathering. I'm still getting used to the process of documenting my WIPs, so if anybody has suggestions or requests (pics of my working palette, color recipes, what have you) please let me know. Lots of pics beyond the spoiler!

      This Bones figure was the demonstration model in my 2-hour "Good Fast Painting" class at ReaperCon 2017.  I got her about 2/3 done in the class.
      She stood half-painted on my shelf for a year and a half. 
      This past Sunday, I just needed to paint something, and this was it.  An hour later, I was ready to call her done. 
      As always, I spent a lot more time per square millimeter on the face & eyes.
      Enjoy!

      Hey all, been a while.
       
      Quick job from Bones 4. Added a saddle, threw on a Mantic Soul Reaver cavalry rider with a head swap from Puppetswar.

      My first post here! I thought the bones 4 ape men would make good soldiers for my growing demonic army. Still thinking of tweaking some of the smaller details and considering also painting the armored one as a barlgura. Tried to give some texture by dry brushing orange over a black base coat for fur. I also tried to dry brush around the eyes to create a deep red glowing effect.

      C and c welcome but keep in mind I’m pretty new to this!
