Painting Miniatures

Horror Paint on Townsfolk: Undertaker 77143

Recommended Posts

Thank you, it was dragons blood red, I was pleasantly surprised at how it dried. I was a little worried at first because it was so shiny but when it dried to the black surface of the coat it turned out really well.

 

I'm waiting on new paint I bought so this miniature was painted with nothing but the paints included in the learn to paint kits I bought.

"Sad to see the last of old Boris, really. But he knew too much. Couldn't risk him wagging his tongue after a few tankards, now, could I?"

Good stuff!

I am curious what that is from.

It seemed like the sort of thing the undertaker would say--in an internal monologue at least. Making up quotes/scenarios/nanofiction in response to particularly evocative minis is a thing a few of us on the forums do sometimes. 

The blood on the shovel, especially in that pattern, tell quite a story--I'm imagining a fellow-gravedigger and premeditated shovel-murder while the undertaker's victim was distracted. What would be easiest? Surprise attack while the victim was digging a grave. (Wait until it's dug deep, that makes disposing of the body much more convenient. ) But why? I fancied the undertaker's colleague was a party to secrets, secrets that everybody involved should take to their graves--sooner rather than later, in the undertaker's opinion.

Ah fair enough, I just thought you were quoting a movie or something.

      Last new post for the day.
      Here is another BONES Tick.  I have 2 more and a queen.
      This is the 4th painted one, and I painted it while I painted the centipedes.  I wanted some bright colors and bright markings.
      C&C Welcome.

      I painted this large water elemental several months back to fill a gap in my water elemental supply.  It started out translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I haven't tried inking the transulcents like others have, I lack the inks, and feel I get good control with opaques.  I wanted a simple beach sand looking base, to suggest he has washed up on the beach to harass sunbathers.  C&C Welcome.

      I painted this up quickly several months back, to swell the ranks of water elementals.  It was translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I feel I have more control that way, and don't have the spiffy inks everyone says work so well on the translucent BONES minis.
      C&C Welcome.

      Here are another pair of Giant Centipedes.  I have 6 total of these, and these are the 4th and 5th to receive paint.
      Simple, bright green with some red eyes and antennae for contrast.  C&C welcome.

      I finished my Leisynn conversion. Took ages, especially with a new baby boy in the house.
       
      That said, I am fairly pleased how he turned out. I changed the entire front and head area of the miniature and gave him a more sensible staff.
       
      I think contrast could be increased overall and the subtle freehand on his robes was difficult. I will need to practice more with future minis. 
       
      The illumination in the book turned out ok, but I came to the limits of my current abilities. It is based on a medieval illumination. Anyone can guess what it is? One hint: the horned one is involved.
       

       

       

       
      C&C very welcome.
