It seems that once you have painted for a while, you don't forget the techniques; it's like riding a bike, but with less leg movement.

The Wizardly Old Fellow & his Bird are BEAUTIFULLY painted & based creations. Not doing the Bird as a crow is quite a nice decision. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks to everyone for their comps.

Firstly, let me clear something up, when I said after a “long break”, I meant long break from painting 28mm / Reaper miniatures.

I was painting a LOT of 15mm armies (WW2 / Napoleonics / Ancients) instead. The techniques for 15mm are a bit different from 28’s but my brushwork is far from rusty (although my eyesight is probably shot ^_^) . Sorry for the confusion.

Funny, when I first started painting the Mage, the first bird that came to mind was a pigeon.

Very nice.  Good to see a wizard painted up in red for a change.

I am planning to do a set of Rainbow Mages. Already done up 2114 Galladon as the Blue Mage, will have to check my lead mountain for the remaining 5.

Very nice, reminds me of Elminster art from the box of 2nd edition AD&D Forgotten realms campaign setting

Wasn't planned that way, but now that you mention it, I quite agree.

A member of the faculty of Unseen University? Very nicely done, do show us more of your work.

The pigeon is exceptionally good.

What a wonderfully done wizard! To me he has a delightful old school feeling - I really like the way you highlighted the robe.

      This figure is next on the agenda.  I cleaned up mold lines, cut off the “base” part of his integral base, washed him and mounted him on a Reaper 1 inch base.

      I’m so pleased. The grey beards have been a joy to paint so far.

      I needed a large Roc for my upcoming D&D game, so I painted the new Bones 4 Roc in a traditional scheme.  Nothing really fancy; just a large bird that wants to pick you up and take you back to its nest to feed you alive to its young.

      I recently started a project to go through the Bones 1 KS models I have in order from a printout of the Rewards pictures.
      Here is the first project: Cassie, Gnome Wizard.  There are some great examples of her out there.  I knew I wanted a purple-haired gnome, and just went from there.
      The most aggravating part of this miniature was the cloak.  I wasn't planning on spending so much time on these figures, but I tried a freehand Raindrop pattern, and it took a long time.

      Enjoy.
      C&C Welcome.

      I have begun the best thing I can think of for myself to get through my Bones I stockpile.  I went to the Kickstarter page, took screenshots of the reward pictures, and am using it as a checklist.  I’ll be shooting for tabletop+.
       
      First up is Cassie, gnome wizard.
       

       
      Mold lines addressed, cleaned, and on a rudimentary base.
       

       
      Primed with Brown Liner.
      Flesh tone base is Rosy Shadow.
       

       
      Then working on eyes.
      Nightshade Purple and Linen White so far.
      And that’s all I got done today.
