Hi all, I've recently started painting some of my minis (finally) and also got some friends to help. Below I'll show everything thats been done so far, before likely making a showoff thread for the done done ones (some are aaalmost there, need a few more touches.

 

My Work: (2nd mini ever):

77503 Temple Dragon : - I wanted to do some complimentary color on him but couldn't quite decide where. First thought was underbelly and underside of wings, but glued together the underbelly is incredibly hard to paint. I was also considering the larger left and right spines down the  middle and/or maybe just the bones/claws that extend from the wings(bone color?)

He seems to photograph better than he looks in standard light, hes a bit dark, so without lighting for taking a picture distinguishing much on him is not all that easy.

77506 Kobolds (6): (3rd mini ever) I am trying to somewhat emulate the Kobolds painted on the Bones 4 page ( https://www.reapermini.com/bones4 )

Just starting on them, got a darker skin tone and tried dry brushing over with a lighter, but its hard to keep it localized on such a tiny mini. Painting these seems like it's going to get more frustrating than it is rewarding.. :/

Trying to do linen white for the cloth with maybe a sepia wash over it, then steel for the armor with a black wash

Thanks for the comments guys!

 

Any ideas/suggestions on adding a color to the Temple Dragon?

 

First of all I think he looks great as is.

 

But if you want to add more...I would paint the nails/claws and the spikes in a bright red or a shiny black.

      Started converting my bones v robot kobolds. The idea was to arm them with scifi weapons to use them as a little starship boarding party. 
       
      The plan is to do a total of 9 when ever they hit retail, all with different weapons. 
       
      So far axe guy has a plasma gun and a samurai banner.
      Then there's rocket launcher kobold
      Knife kobold has a flame thrower.

      Been tinkering with painting again, worked on my Eilluvasheth the Succubus Queen and painted her up in the colour scheme of Alexstasza from World of Warcraft. Despite boiling her and quick-cooling her she still had a bit of a lean but she was fun to paint.
       
      Here are the links to the front views since she has nipple pasties:

      A pair of Bones bears (or the bear Bones, if you like)
       
      I tried to paint these from pictures of real-life grizzly bears. Every time I paint an animal it ends up with a chaotic riot of washes and highlights in different colours until it looks enough like the source images to satisfy me. I doubt if I could paint another one and get the same colour! The coat of the Dire bear is much coarser, which really shows in the photo (like the fine moulding line on the Cave Bear's face) but is less bothersome in more natural light.
       
      I painted these as companions to my Stone Giant tribe, and you can see the frankly ridiculous diorama I built over here...

      I found this little jeep at the grocery store. Since it was roughly the right size I chopped up a bones kobold to drive it. And piled some food, a crystal and a duck in the back.

      It was not bad, but I didn't really like the sword, since my goal was joyride mayhem as opposed to fighting. So I gave it a mug instead. 

      I also gave him a little lizard pal hanging on the outside. 

      So that's cool, but I want to make it sillier still before I paint it. 
      Currently thinking of sticking a bag of golf clubs and maybe some other kobold loot on the jeep.

      Hi all - haven't posted a pic in a long time.... here is the Dire Bear from  Bones IV (I think) - one of my players now has bear form abilities - we call this her aspirational bear (currently just a brown bear as the player)- I thought it turned out not too bad for 4-5hrs - lots better than a white piece of plastic for the table! Pics are super lazy white paper and smartphone on my painting table.
