Progress report! 

 

Deathsleet was a little wobbly on her feet, and I wasn’t sure if gluing then down to a base would work out well, so I got to boil my first Bones. They sure do feel weird once soft :unsure:.

 

Got all the materials, but still unsure if I want to do a Star Challenge. If I Blue Liner-ize this thing first, does that count against the challenge rules?

Deathsleet does have weak ankles. I would definitely recommend pinning them to provide some reinforcement first.

You may absolutely use the blue liner to prime the figure. It'll all be covered up anyway :poke:

Pinning is currently beyond my capabilities (no drill). (Or pins). I’d likely cut a hole right through the skin in any case.

This may be a slight overestimate of my painting abilities :lol:

Okay so it’s been awhile, but I finally got the basecoat down for the Cloudy Grey.

am am thinking I may need to stick her onto a 50mm base before proceeding further.

 

And writing that realizing that would make it nigh impossible to paint her underbelly. Not sure about doing a star challenge either, better play it safe.

Basecoating the wings, using True Blue for the membranous portions. Unfortunately, this shade is quite a bit more watery than the Cloudy Grey, and given Bonesium’s noted hydrophobic property it immediately proceeded to bead up on the smooth surfaces. 

 

Probably should have begun with a liner, but what’s done is done. Another coat or two (or possibly three) should take care of this brushstrokey mess.
