So I decided to do some elementals real quick. I gave them base coat of matte medium - primer for earth, because base coat.


Then I attempted the yellow-ning. First it looked good, so I tried to add a little more, mixed with orange tint, and ugh.

I think I'd recommend doing outsides red, and then use a yellow ink w/medium as "dry" brush to pick out details. It won't look right, but a lot of the translucents really seem to be table ready.

Things are looking better for the yellow-ning, now that things have dried a little.

And what happened to this arm?IMAG2761_2.thumb.jpg.51d8e89b07129278efcdce9cebf44980.jpg

 

And then came the stoning. I grabbed a bunch of random greys, browns, and other colors that might be stony in color. I missed a bunch, but the point wasn't to do every stone in a different color, but give it variety. When that's dried a bit, I'll do random blue, red, and green tints randomly before I do the stone wash. I'm expecting to dry brush after, but we'll see how it looks.

I have plans for big boy blue, but I don't think they'll be noticeable for a while.

Part one of water:

Phthalo green (blue) some matte medium and the new copper verdigris is my first step. It dried quickly, so I'll do some touchups soon. Next I'll try some ghost white at the highest points.

Unseen are the turquoise ink and phthalo green (blue) ink & medium coats trying to give a bit of variety. Last will be phthalo blue (green) in the shadows if something extra is needed.

Inspired by Siri's version here

And because my phone was dead, now I'm pasting the link to the showoff thread.

      This is my most ambitious attempt to date.  A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes.  I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989.  That’s a whopping 37 figures.  I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses per faction possible.  The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction.  The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green).  Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification.  Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all.
       
      And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)!
       
      Wish me luck!

      I'm working up the nerve to start the larger mushroom characters from the darkreach expansion with this little guy. I really wanted to see what a bright colour scheme would do for the figures, playing on the idea of a brightly posionous mushroom. This is the result.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  
       
       

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.

      Oddly these are the first two models I painted up from Bones 4. It just sorta happened. Added a bit of 'stuff' to the altar, the books alone seemed a bit empty.
