I wanted to do a couple things with these guys. First, I wanted to see what I could accomplish in under 3 hours of work on a single mini. This included the prep, prime, and painting of each (though I didn't prime Sajan). And second, just play around with more Bones figures because, except for the bigger models, I admit to not being the biggest fan mostly due to the fuzzy details and cleaning the mold lines can be a pain on them. But I want to get to know them better because they're not going anywhere! And I have a lot of them now too.
Here's what I got out of it -
One, since I had a time constraint, I didn't obsess over getting every mold line smoothed out and I didn't do any green stuff patching and I just had to get over it, haha.
Two, the sculpt really matters. Sir Conlan was easier compared to the other two.
Three, I had to constantly remind myself not to hyper focus on little details as is my habit. An example would be faces. I spent about a half hour just on Alistrilee's face. (And these pictures don't do her justice, it looks way better in person, I think.)But that's part of the reason I wanted to try this - to see where I spend too much time and improve technique and habit along the way.
And four, I know things could go faster if I gave in to more drybrushing, but certain things never look quite complete to me when I do that.
Going to go back to hyper focusing on some of my other projects for now. But I'll definitely do this more often. Maybe a couple every other week or something like that.
This is Bones Nakayama Hayato Iconic Samurai.
I found his details a bit crude and decided to paint it as a statue for my Nippon Project.
Speed Paint with the Reaper Stone Triad.
Scale 75 Decayed Metal, P3 Molten Bronze and Vallejo Verdigris.
There is a legend that deep in the woods around Kyoto there stands a statue of one of Nippon's greatest warriors.
If one would find it and paid respect to it the statue might bestow luck on that person.
It is also believed that when the Empire is in dire need, the statue will come to life to fight once more to protect Nippon.
89023: Balazar, Iconic Summoner by Bobby Jackson
I assume this figure is meant to be a gnome; he's very short for a human, and he's lacking the beard of a dwarf.
I find painting yellows and oranges very difficult. They tend to be colours with very low opacity, and getting an even coverage requires several coats.
89022: Alahazra, Iconic Oracle as crew for the Grenadier Undead Rhino Captive Carrier.
On the base is a Bones Mummy fighting for his unlife with an approaching snake, luckily for him the Rhino tries to crush it.
