Darcstaar vs. BONES 1: Ep. 1 - Cassie

Recommended Posts

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.

Eyes done:

Dot of Royal Purple, a line of Amethyst Purple under, and a dot of Pure White in the upper right (model’s perspective).

Skin layered:

Rosy Shadow, Rosy Highlight with a touch of Rosy Shadow, and then a good amount of Fair Skin mixed in for final highlight.

Re established Royal Purple.  Highlight with Amethyst Purple with a small amt of Royal Rurple.

Thanks!  I’m by no means a master, especially for black hair.  But I’ve come a long way and hope it helps.

Blue Liner on the robe.  Thinking of a raindrop motif freehand, but may scrap it due to “tabletop+.”

      Hey, don't normally do WIPs, so forgive me if I skip steps, but I started working on my gazebo from Bones 4.
      Built up a cork base and mounted on some basswood (slightly harder than balsa):

      I'm going to be using this as blocking terrain in Kings of War, so I don't really need any interior functionality.
      I got a Rivendell vibe from this, so I'm going to load it up with some greenery. First step is covering the rock parts with a gritty paste:

      Just left the steps exposed and some edges.

      What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ?

      Hello forum family, as I already wrote in the WIP thread I just wanted an Aasimar but don't wanna buy one, so I decided to make my own converting the bones version of the Ghoul Queen and the Angel of Shadows.

      And this is the outcome:  Hi-res picture


      I really like how she came out, I really hope you'll like her too!
      Every c&c and advice is super welcome :)
      Thank you for watching!

      This is the Wizard from Grenadier’s Wizards box set circa 1980. Most of the minis from the set were called variations like Sorcerer, Illusionist, Magician, and Warlock. But there are also 2 druids and a cleric included. 
      I painted all the minis from the set in my teens, then wanted to repaint them in my early 20’s so I had my friend sandblast(!) the paint off. That eroded much of the detail. So the detail in the beard, hands, imp, is almost all painted in.

      Hi all.  I may have finished this guy in record time.  I am trying this new thing where when I want to stop and get up from my desk... I don't .  This is a bugbear that I just primed with a couple others even though I didn't really have any strong feelings about him.  But as I started working on him I started to get more excited, which is something that's been happening to me more now.  I just start a mini to get more stuff painted and end up liking the job.  I have started to put more effort into highlighting because I got a nudge here on the forums and I am so glad I did.  I really like the work I did on his armour, bringing the scales up to a brighter orange and ticking the edges with silver to make it look like the orange was paint wearing off.  In person he really glitters with that silver, something that didn't quite come across in the picture.  I like the highlighting I did with his skin and loincloth and also the silver rivets on the arm and shin guards.  I hope you all like him too!
