Absolutely amazing! I was just taking note of this mini the other day, and you've done a fantastic job! That wood grain came out really nice, that's something I really need to work on. Also, I really like the way his beard came out. Overall awesome!

The colors are great and I love the blonde beard! Many times I think people use too much yellow to make blonde, this is the perfect blonde! The axe handle is also very well done!

I'm impressed ! Lovely job, I particularly like how you used your excessive shadowing style to make the mini pop, very hard to pull off on such close-up camera shots and you succeeded quite well ! As for your lettering query, it is all about illusion with something that small and also think you pulled it off quite nicely even thou your not happy with it. Thank you for this showing.

Darcstaar, I have this same figure, and I'm looking forward to painting it. Your's' looks great! My only nitpick, and it's small, is that the beard, which is well done, blends in with that NMM on the helmet. Other than that, I really like it. Well done sir!

Firstly, this looks great!  ^_^ 


The tiny runes on his clothing look better at the bottom than they do on the sleeves, I think it's that tiny shadow or hint of a separation line on the top of the runes to help them not blend in with the background.  I don't know that there is enough room to have that detail on the sleeves so maybe either widen the edging or choose a different background color?  Tiny details like this are the weakness in Bones because of the slight softening of the edges.  You pulled them off well, I think!

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.

      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
      That's all for right now.

      Good day everyone, here are pictures of 77105, Kagunk "Voorhees" the Ogre Chieftain sculpted by Tre Manor. This is the Bones version of the model.
      I added the axe blade on its spiked club, mounted it on a 2 inches square base and painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      Monique de Noir 54mm #01444  NMM is not easy and I’m still working on my technique. I COULD have gone with a blue glaze to give it more of a steel look but I didn’t want to I do love the larget models though, easier to handle. TY for the great customer service on this btw, ReaperMini. My original one arrived with have her face higher up, so she looked funny. Customer Service was more than happy to resend it (I did send pics) after they verified the issue wasn’t on this new one. Sorry for the pic quality, I am not great at taking pics.
