Guindyloo and Buglips paint DHL 03100: Thanis the Bonecaller

Recommended Posts

Finally found this thread and just finished through it. It's an absolutely phenomenal piece and incredibly helpful to everyone who wants to tackle this. I would ask, nay, implore you to make even more of these.........and tell me when you start it, so I don't have to run to catch up.

 

Also, I know which one is my favourite.::D:

I want to thank you two for this thread!

Awesome, useful and informative.

 

I like both paintjobs.

They both look stunning in their own way.

Of course Guindy putting more time and effort in, pays off.

 

Thank you so much for explaining how you did this!

I can actually answer why I use muted, organic colours.  It's because a strong influence in my love of miniatures is old school pre-cgi special effects, miniatures, and creatures.  Half of me likes to pretend I'm working in a creature shop and my Terraclips board is the "set".  Since it's not a job you can do like it used to be, it's a nod to my inner 80's kid who wanted to be Harryhausen when he grew up.  

 

It's an extra layer of enjoyment to the process... even if sometimes to get something done that I don't want to paint I pretend there's an angry producer stalking me who wants that air elemental by Friday or the whole shoot is ruined!  It costs a lot of money to shoot on location in the living room, you know.

 

Fun is where you find it, kids.

First read looks great I will come back and take a good examine, as I can see there are lots of things going on there.  Thanks you two.

We're going to aim for one of these per month and have a bunch of really neat Reaper figures picked out.  We try to pick ones that are interesting but also have challenging parts to work with, so we can show different approaches to solving problems.   

 

Glad you liked it and found it helpful, hopefully you'll enjoy the new stuff too!

      Heya folks been busy painting away, but keep forgetting to post on here.  This one is one of the Halfling Farmers by Jason Wiebe. I also started an instagram @starscolorbox, there are more photos on there :).  Enjoy

      Unknown female vampire figure I picked up in a boxed game set.  Can't remember the exact name or manufacturer.  Box art showed them in purple, I wanted to explore other colors.  I see her as the kind of vampire that likes to play with her food and enjoys a bit of lively sport. I have 2 of her sisters to do in other colors. 
       

       
      The photo is a bit washed out from the flash.  Her skin is a pale grey, different than her white gloves.  Casting on the face is strange, she has an odd shaped mouth, and no nose so I painted one on.

      Vatanis came in my  Paint & Take Home Survival Kit, and I started him off as part of the craft paint challenge, but it just wasn't working. 

       
       
       
      So he got set aside for a couple of months, until I saw Cicciopiu's magnificent rendition.  I leaned on it heavily for inspiration

      He has so, so many details.  I could put much more time into this, but I had reached a point where I had to stop.

      And what's a graveyard setting without some undead wolves to harry the party in the snow?

      This mini of my favorite evil mage type figures. I painted it a while back, and it has seen heavy use (gaming, displaying, a few moves, an a couple of stunt dives off a congested gaming table). I plan on touching up the chipped areas (see edge of scroll), but I would like to know how to make the paint more durable for future minis.
       
      The Callus figure was de-flashed, sanded, primed, painted, and then given a clear coat.
