Welcome back!

 

A great bunch!

Reaper likes us to put each mini in his own Show Off these days.

Just so you know.

 

Wow.

The Draconians are amazing, and the Umber Hulk is very very cool!

 

Keep it up!

*Wince* Yikes.  Errrm...sorry Kit/Cheryl/Whomever moderates Show Off these days. Was just trying to consolidate/not take up the entire 1st page of the Show Off section. I'll know better next time. 

Anyway, thanks Glitterwolf! It's nice to be back.  And yeah, probably put a little more effort in to the Dragonborn, as they're my favorite D&D race. Glad you like them, and no worries, not going to stop anytime soon. :)

Welcome back!  Good to see another old-timer return.  Minis are looking good.  I like the kind of de-saturated look most of these have.  Nice and realistic.  Hope you plan on sticking around for a while.

 Hey, Dilvish! Thanks!  Yeah, that's still kind of my schtick, though my terrible photography set up/skills probably adds to that. :D 

Getting back in to the painting groove has had a pretty positive effect on my overall mental well being, so yeah, I'll be around more often. After all, I have that Blightfang to finish up!

I believe it's OK to show off a few minis in one thread as long as there's a specific theme or other good reason to group them together.

 

And yeah, awesome paint jobs.

Good to know! I guess the theme here is: "I've been away for a long, long time. Look, I've been painting again!" LOL

Also, thank you.

Very nice and welcome back. Don't worry I don't think this thread is breaking any rules.

 Well, even if it does, I'm sure someone will let me know. :) Thank you!

Awesome.  I really like the black dragon 

 Thanks! That's one of my favorites too.  And a decent example of what you can do with a pre-painted Pathfinder mini.

I wish all the spams I got in my life were like this! Those spell effects are simply unreal and overall paint job is very fine. And it is good to know this particular D&D line is burshworthy (at last!). So keep more coming in please.

      Hello there, here are pictures of Tungdill, a Wizkids Nolzur’s Marvelous 72630, Dwarf Male Paladin. It is the character of one of the players of our D&D group. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint and Citadel casandora yellow ink on the hammer head.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Been a minute since I've posted a WIP, so I figure I'd roughly document my current paintjob.

      I'm running a 5e game with a heavy focus on the Shadowfell, and our most recent addition to the party is a native of that realm - a Hexblood or "Hexen" in our game lore. These dark fey are the children of hags - The Mothers Three - and are made from earth, blood, and stolen souls.

      Going for a dark but vibrant paintjob - blue skin, and dark clothing.


      After priming, I like to block in my darkest colors. It makes it easier for me to avoid missing a hard-to-reach spot later, but without worrying too much if I get some paint where it's not supposed to be.  This method also helps me to visualize and plan out my colors better.

      I was instructed to paint her with blue skin, black hair, and dark clothing. I started with the skin. I based with Rich Indigo and plan on working up towards Surf Aqua.  I'm hoping this transition from a more purple-hue in the shadows to a bit of green in the highlight will look interesting, as well as kind of capture the overall color scheme.

      I chose a few other colors to sort of represent that scheme and stippled them over the base - Rich Indigo, Deep Ocean, and Carnival Purple. I eventually want the base to look like rocky terrain, but wanted to avoid neutral greys.
       
      Pure Black for the hair and then set about base coating the rest of the mini.
       
      I wanted to avoid all-black or shades of grey in her outfit so dark greens and purples will be used to keep things more colorful. The tattered robes got a mix of Pure Black and Deep Ocean. The fabric wraps are Dark Elf Shadow - hoping to keep the purpleish greys.

      I also slapped some Deep Ocean on the gemstone on her staff for a pop of color - will reuse this for other gemstone details.
       


      The base got washed in Pure Black - will play around with some drybrushing later. Metal details also got hit with pure black to work up to some NMM silver.
       
      Settled on Ashen Brown for the bone details. The slightly cooler purple hue should help the bones blend in with the rest of the mini.
      Also hoping to use the Ashen Brown to highlight the hair without it looking grey.

      Not much to see so far - just some quick basecoating before work this morning. Hoping she turns out as I'm picturing and not just a garish blob.

      Side note - this sculpt is one of those earlier Bones sculpts that are quite difficult to pick out details.  I'm inevitably going to paint over some random blob and not notice until later.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
