Could always light it the way I did my wraith:

I thought about the electric tea lights as well.  That seems to provide enough light through the piece to really improve the contrast for photography.

So far my experiment seems to be working. The dragons now face each other instead of the wings. We will see if they reset over night

Thanks, they look great!

 

It seems the crusader ghost has a different pose than he had in the concept art.

Nevermind it will still work for what I had in mind with this guy.

I have an idea for a little vignette.

The ghost pirates looked really good in a video I saw. But taking pictures of them it always looks like a green mess. I'm sure all these models will be fine with paint or at least a wash.

 

On another note: why are ghosts green in the Bones line? Why not grey, white, clear, or idk, blue? Are green ghosts an American thing?

Whoops... I missed one! He literally fell off the backside of the barge and I didn't see him when I went and grabbed the rest of them for the picture: 20190424_065833.thumb.jpg.08bb311cc661349e518f6c805da28cbe.jpg

Dreadmere was the set that interested me the most during the KS. It hasn't disappointed since I got it. I really like so many of the models in it. Out of the couple handfuls of minis I grabbed to work on first half are from Dreadmere. So many of them fit into the games I'm playing right now.

I wasn't that interested in Dreadmere, in fact I almost passed on it. I really wanted to see how the turtle turned out though, and now it's my favorite of the expansions in this kickstarter. The minis are all have a lot of character, they feel like they all have backstories related to living in a hard-scrabble coastal community of retired pirates and brigands.

 

And great timing for D&D fans. With the Ghosts of Saltmarsh adventure coming out next month I think the minis will get plenty of use. Of course the Stygian Barge expansion might also be useful...

 It reminds me a lot of that swamp village in the first Witcher game. Also it had me at the boat.

I suspect that green ghosts may have become a thing because of the Army of the Dead in the LotR movies.

Spoiler

Agreed, the throne is excellent, but I find the Queen to be a little... tame. I hope to find a more flamboyant (and less heavily attired) replacement.

Actually, you could do what I do: do a light wash of green/blue green (GW has some really nice technical paints just for that), let it dry, then do a really light couple of dry brushes of green over top. I've got a step by step with one of the translucent wraiths from Bones 1 somewhere if you want to see it. Turns out well!

 

And, I got my Bones today!! Already have the dinosaurs assembled, along with about half of the barge assembled as well. Even sat down with my 4 year old and showed her how to assemble the Rocky dragons (which she LOVED). Happy day!

 

I would love to see the step by step for that (if no one else has already asked...)

There is a always the older metal version of a Dark Elf Queen on her throne from Reaper.

Here is the pic of all assembled bones 4.  Notice my Argent is about 12" tall.  And the sprue graveyard that the Roc et all are guarding. One of the dead superglue bottles is hiding but the 8 other bottle and one tube can be seen.

Cool. How much glue did you use?

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
