This challenge would make me pee my pants, but I hope you knock it out of the park OneBoot!

 

 

I'll definitely cheer you on... (and privately judge your sanity). ::P:

I gave the new Sepia liner a try, and I like it quite a bit. It's much lighter than Brown liner, even unthinned, with a nice golden brown.

 

The two on the left I thinned 5:1 Sepia liner : water, the next two were 6:1 liner : water, and the lady on the right I tried it unthinned. It got a tiny bit bubbly when I thinned it, so I think going forward I'll just use it without thinning it. Which I'm totally down with. :)

I discovered that Merisiel hasn't any nose, so I'll have to paint it on, but that doesn't really bother me much.

 

I think I'll trim off the worst of the mold lines, touch up the liner, and then proceed with skin tones.

 

Huzzah!

Considering I should try & paint up some PC minis for my RCon games, I'll be following along!

The sepia liner is looking good! I've completely fallen in love with it for base coating Bones and finally understand why people want giant bottles of the stuff. It's so much easier to get bright colors over sepia liner than brown or gray. It shows off the miniature's detail better also. Gonna need so many bottles.

Feel free to publicly judge it too, I don't mind. :lol:

Oh yeah, the skin tones are going on with far fewer coats than usual, even though I'm thinning it slightly. It's very nice. It seems to be nicely durable too, since it reacted the same way as Brown Liner when I tried scratching it off with my fingernail. It came off slightly on the figures that I put the thinned liner on, and it barely came off at all on the one with the unthinned liner. Awesome! :bday:

 

So, I was going to just do all of the skin tones and then post, but I figured this is a WIP thread, so y'all might want to actually see the progress. :upside:

 

Here's Lady Masumi with 3 coats Rosy Shadow, and 2 coats Rosy Skin, both slightly thinned:

I should note that I'm sort of terrified of painting skin, female in particular, so this is totally pushing my boundaries. :)

 

And here's Merisiel and Galadanoth (what a mouthful; I'mma change his name to Elrohir), with 3 coats Rosy Shadow and only 1 coat Rosy Skin; that second coat makes a big difference, as you'll see:

I'm doing my best to follow all of the excellent face painting advice @Corporea has given in her threads, but to me it just looks like they're all wearing light-colored war paint. Hopefully it will look okay at tabletop distance, though.

 

And here's Merisiel (I'm going to call her Tipsy from now on, since even after boiling she won't stand straight) and Elrohir with a second coat of Rosy Skin:

I'm going to do a Rosy Highlight layer on each of them, and then I've got a different triad I put together for the other two.

 

Huzzah!

You can do it, OneBoot!  They're already looking good!

 

To time capsule this thread for future forum searches, here are the names of the new Bones III minis (assuming Reaper doesn't change anything):

  • (242) (Dwarf Ranger) = 77480 Durok, Dwarf Ranger
  • (154) (Lady Blademaster) = 77440 Masumi, Demon Hunter
  • (101) (Elf Archer) = 77320 Galadanoth, Elf Sniper

Thank you for the information; I'll update my initial post in a bit. :) I think "Demon Hunter" sounds way cooler anyways.

 

Huzzah!

These two went WAY faster, since there was so little skin showing. Suntan flesh for the shadows, Tanned skin for the midtone, and Tanned Highlight for the, um, highlight.

Sorry the picture isn't very good; the skin is a lot more distinguishable from the surrounding liner in person.

 

I think Slate Fistcrunch's face came out better, since I deliberately tried to make the midtone places bigger and the highlight spots smaller. He did end up with cheekbones sharp enough to cut bread with, though. :lol:

 

As far as issues, just another smooshed left ear, on Thick McRunFast:

I dunno what the Bones molds seem to have against left ears, lol.

 

I'm going to be taking a break to figure out which colors I want to work on next, plus get dinner and a couple chores out of the way. I think I'll primarily focus on the Demon Hunter first, since she has the least amount of fiddly stuff.

 

Huzzah!

Woo-hoo!

Go, OneBoot!!

 

I'm quite liking the look of the sepia liner, thanks for using that. Very glad I got some of that with my Bones 3 stuff.

 

P.S. Your finger nails look all sparkly and cool.:upside:

Ooooh, I really like the sepia liner too.

 

I could totally see leaving some minis just looking like that for some kind of stylized game.

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
       
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.
       


       
      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
       
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...
       



       
      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.
       


       
      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      This was a repaint from earlier this year. I bought Quickshade Strong Tone for speed painting some of my board games and tried it in Woody. I liked the way it worked for the most part but as you can tell I got some frosting when I matte coated it. Another thing that happened was my paint cracked on my base but I kinda like the way it looks. I probably won't bother fixing any of the issues as I moved on to another figure I am struggling with.

      Fun and quick one for RCL new release. Have been aiming for a more dull/gritty looks wtih a lot of my recent figures.

      Back in November I posted over on the Conversion WIP sub-forum about a mounted figure I was making using the Bones 4 Giant Rhinoceros Beetle and the Mudcroak Squog figure: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93699-frog-riding-beetle-conversion/
       
      This past week I finally got around to painting the converted figure, and I  wanted to share the results.

      It's a cougar!  Specifically it's a firepelt cougar, from the world of Golarion (Pathfinder RPG).
      It's also my submission for the Reaper Challenge League under the January theme of "Ice or Fire".
      Pathfinder authors have described firepelts as having black-and-red or "autumnal" coloration, but I know of only one image in a Paizo book: the 5th anniversary book of Rise of the Runelords shows one as mostly black with thin orange stripes running down its back and orange rings on its tail.  I used that as a point of departure, plus extra reference in the form of photos of cougars, and photos of rare recessive-gene "king cheetahs" that have stripes and large blotchy spots instead of the usual small round spots.
      I cut away parts of this guy's integral base, and sculpted a grouping of rocks that the cougar is descending.
       

       

       

       
      Enjoy!
      Derek
