JULY WIP: Assorted Bones (goblins - pathfinder, original, bones 3, giant rats, unicorn, giant worm, reading Sophie)

Recommended Posts

So I need to do my Bones 3 Sophie for August because a friend is in town. I decided to also do a small horde of "20" goblins because I will be GMing adventures soon that require some (I think it's officially 22?). I chose not to paint the musicians & standard bearers that are part of ogre command, or the pathfinder pyromancers set I think I have somewhere in my vault of unpainted minis, because that's a lot. I also decided to paint some other stuff of use - the unicorn because I'm currently playing a wild magic sorceror who has already summoned a unicorn twice! a purple worm because I have been waiting forever for a restock, and some rats because they always useful. One day I will also paint up all my kobolds and there will be a great and terrible battle (and realistically, the goblins will win because there are twice as many).

Unpainted photo soon - the minis are all currently drying. I will only prime/ base coat today due to leaving for game in 5 hours.

Paging @buglips*the*goblin: I want to make sure I'm not painting diseased goblins. If I remember correctly, blue is a no? tanned through yellow, orange, reddish tinges are okay, and green too?

I gotta say the new bones 3 goblins are a joy to paint. They're TINY, way smaller than the original goblins, but they're sturdier (thanks, new bonesium formula), and they're really easy to paint despite the size. They're mostly skin, so you can slop the skin tones on messily, give em a bit of a wash, then re-base and highlight and they look great. I kinda love the pot-bellies, and the funny expressions.

I took some mid-day process pics, but I'm not sure if I'm going to post anything until I've got base skin on all the goblins.

I changed my mind here's pics. They're all outdated, though.

Worm has had blue and pink dry brush and a purple wash, and the stones have been base coated since. The unihorn had a wash and touch up, some highlights on the skin, and some touch-ups on the mane and tail (dark wash and re apply base as dry brush).

A lot of painting with not much to show. Still not everything base coated, but goblin command, unihorn, worm, and giant rats are mostly done.

The rats have eyes and teeth, and I'm pretty sure are done. The worm has had dry brushing on stones and touch ups on the maw. It too is done. The uni has the beginning of a broccoli base painted, shading, and the spotting on the belly. It is mostly done.

The goblins still need some leathers but have clothes and weapons.

I've done more since these pics, but I'll take pics again after I've done more still. Some of these guys you won't see again until a show off thread.

Metal applied to goblins and Sophie mostly base coated. I tried a transitional base for the uni-grass with dirt and stone ahead to represent their ability to bring the good. We'll see how it looks later... Terrible when I left it. Pics later, no room on my phone.

Quick update. Highlighted Sophie s podium drapery in orange using a too big brush. Glazed over with burgundy wine. Started 2-tone hair and did some flesh tones and flesh wash over the dusky skin wings

Uni base is done. Glazed Sophie's lantern a yellow light. Still need to shade & highlight clothes, do bright hair where light hits. Touch up podium and books and wash base. And EYES! I found out I have more time.

Goblins got some highlights. They need eyes and bases.

None of this is worth a photo.

Goblins can haz eyeballz. But no red pupils yet. Did a bit of highlights on the lit areas of Sophie's hair/clothing and base coats on last remaining items of Sophie's-goblet, I'm calling it a chest, and scroll cases. Once I've added the metallics to those and highlights/shadows/details I'll only have her eyes, makeup, and illustrations on the book pages left.

Photos later today.

Highlights and shadows for the goblin commander's cloak too.

Unihorn in show-off now.

I'll send the rats and worm next.

 

Since bones 3 kickstarter, I've had the plan of shrinking down a friend's doodles, gluing them in place, then painting over the lines before a wash. I couldn't get anything to print legibly yet still small enough for the pages. I tried roughly duplicating the images in white paint, but that wasn't working either. Finally I just did random squiggles and called it a day. I'll take pics later if it's okay, and link to the new show-off threads.

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
       
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

       
      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.
       

       

       
      Full frontal metal shiny.
       

       
      And rotating around for those that want to look.
       
       
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.
       

       
      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I’m working on trying to get this big guy painted to tabletop standard by the time I have to use him at our next Pathfinder D&D session to represent the Roc King on Tilagos Island in the Demiplane of Last Resort, in the Age of Worms adventure path.

      Painted up these 8 unrelated barbarians as a clan for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Tried my hand at non-metallic metal again. This is the result. :)

      This is one I've had "in progress" for ages. I finally mustered the courage to tackle all the eyes and then had fun with drool!
