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...
Stone Giant Tribe
I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored. These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again. I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried.
These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal. They even had packaging that read "now lead free".
What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way more capable. However...i need to get this crappy primer off of them. These are 30+ years old and I'm blown away they look as good as they do.
Anyone have a solution that can strip this down to the metal?
Hi everyone. Got a couple more demons for you today. This is a pair of Bones Fly Demons for use as Chasme in D&D. These guys could also serve double duty as Giant Flies for Rangers of Shadow Deep.

Feel free to check out more of my demons and devils in my Blood War project HERE.
If anyone has any leads on other interesting giant fly minis please share them, as I've been finding it difficult to find good models for RoSD.
Also, how do you paint insect wings? They're such a unique feature in the animal kingdom and I'd love to see how you go about it?
Continuing my posting spree. This beholder is the fist model I have printed and painted. I went for a very simple, classic look, and I was really pleased with the bright purples. I have been enjoying MZ's catalog, but man, printing stuff is a lot of work.
I really enjoy painting eyes, so this subject was a treat.The Spectator is now on my shortlist to paint thanks to the positive experience I had with the dodgeball of doom.
