Excellent work! It does all flow together nicely and I really like what you did with his eye. I love this sculpt too and he's in my painting queue right now. Just have two other figures to finish up first.

 

Do you mind if I ask what colors you used for the main skin tones? (The brown spots btw are really good too)

Thank you :) It may not show in the photo, but I used a gloss varnish on the eye to make it pop a bit more. 

 

For the skin tones: I always use (for everything) Citadel paints. I've been told they are not the best option, since they tend to look glossy due to its formula, but it's the brand I've been using since I started and I just have too many of them, and I'm too used to use them to change now :/ 

The colors I used were, for the skin, "Rakhart Flesh": it's kind of a ceramic white-greyish. For the base I mixed it with a bit of brown, and I washed it with Citadel's "Agrax Earthshade" before going with the highlights. Those were done with Rakhart flesh and Rakhart flesh with increasing bits of white. About hte brown spots, they are just two tones of "Dryad Bark", another Citadel's paint: Brown-greyish. First tone darkened with a tiny diminute amount of black, second tone pure.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of the first of 06143, Tomb Guards sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This is the metal version from the Nefsokar Warlord Army Packs.
      I recently painted the three mummies from the pack and will post them on the forum this week. I really enjoyed their big Khopesh and the detail on there shields.

      Hi everyone,
       
      Here is the second skeletal beast I painted last week. This is Bones model 77924, Skeletal Chimera sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I added dirt and moss on it to make it look like it's freshly animated. The leaves are dry birch tree seed hulls. I picked them up in the forest and painted them before gluing them on the base. As a reference, the base is 2 inches wide.

      Good day everyone,
       
      With the dead leaves season comes harvest time. Autumn is also a time for gathering and for reflection. Like the Tuilvilanuue words say "Nilsi hentil kilta anno", it takes four seasons to make a year.
      Here are some pictures of Julie Guthrie awesome 77923 Skeletal Owlbear. I really enjoyed painting this model. The design of the skeletal beasts that Reaper recently produced is stunning. It is an archeological journey in fantasy land.

      I know I messed up the timing this year, and worked on Deadcember instead of Orctober.   I wasn't feeling super-motivated by the small amount of unpainted Orcs I had, but from my Frostgrave II: Arcanic Boogaloo order had a ton of the living dead.  And one never has enough Zombies.

      However, it means there's plenty of spookybois to be shown off!

      The Draugr, mostly converted from the Fireforge Living Dead Peasants and Frostgrave Barbarians with some Warhammer bits.


       

       

       
       

       
       

       

       
       



      The Knockers, again Fireforge Living Dead Peasants with Warhammer Dwarf Miners hats and bits from Mantic and Mage Knight.
      I think I should go back and add big rucksacks...and redo the flames to be the correct order.




      Just plain Fireforge Living Dead Peasants, with the exception of a Frostgrave Cultist head for the Executioner.


       



       



       
       

       



      The Old Vet, a 3D print from Retro Quest



      Undead Pirates from EC3D "Depths of Savage Atoll"



      Former Imperials, converted from Warhammer Empire, Mantic Undead, and Frostgrave Cultists (Undead bits)




      Mostly Mantic.  Beware the spine whip!


       
       
       


      And lastly, when your Necromancer runs out of skulls, the Creeping Claws!  3D prints from Crippled God Foundry
