Community Painting Adventure: Bones Sophie (Officially Unofficial WIP Thread)


Recommended Posts

This thread is shamelessly ripping off a wonderful idea from our goblin friend @buglips*the*goblin from this thread way back around Bones KS1 days.


The intent of this thread is to have lots of people post WIP shots of their Bones Sophie paint jobs. Here are the minis to pick from (SKUs to be updated here soon):


From Left to Right: KS2 Trollslayer Sophie 77370, KS3 Sophie the Sage 77491, KS4 Innkeeper Sophie, KS4 Small World Sophie, Sir Forscale

(Note that Sir Forscale is just that, for scale. He is not part of this for WIP purposes.)



There is no time limit or set starting date. If you come across this thread long after I have posted it and want to join, feel free.


Quick ground rules:

1. Only Bones Sophie is allowed. There are four of them (unless I somehow missed one).


2. Try to limit yourself to a few posts a day, though. No reason to flood this thread too much. (Unless this doesn't pick up interest and it is just me, lol).


3. Watch the side conversations. Ideally this is primarily WIP pics and some direct conversation to help encourage or guide the painters.


4. If this picks up lots of interest, we will use one Show Off thread as to not overwhelm that thread too badly.


5. Play nice. This is meant to encourage people to paint. I am hoping we get painters of all levels of ability. Encourage people to join in. The more the merrier.


Feel free to PM me with questions or concerns. I will try to update this thread with any clarifications or whatnot.


Alright, now let's get this party started!

I have gone through and dealt with the mold lines quickly (definitely not a perfect job). I have to say that the Bones 4 models were much easier to do so and had less work to do. (No pics of this, as everything looked about the same for WIP purposes)


Then I went and black primed with Brown Liner.



Then I sprayed some Pure White to bring out the details and give me a quick guide for highlights. 



That is ot for tonight for me. I am proud of getting paint on some Bones 4 minis already, though.


Hopefully this thread catches on and other people join in.

I have a Sage in progress, will get a photo...soon. 


This is Innkeeper Sophie, the metal version I did recently, I am only posting it for inspiration. :) 




There's a Trollslayer Sophie I did, somewhere in Show-Off, too.

After Friday, I'll only be missing Sophie Sage in bones  -- I have 9 of her in metal that all need painting at some point ( including doubles of 2011 and 2017 RCon versions)  With the enormous backlog I've got (that's going to triple on Friday), I honestly can't justify buying Sophie the Sage, even if she's only $3.99..

Tanned Shadow to build up from and Brown Liner for the darks of the eyes.20190417_223322.thumb.jpg.1374018e3440094e7168b26886defa70.jpg


Three of them got Linen White and Brown Liner for the eyes.



The other added in some Succubus Kiss  (seemed fitting) and Pure White for the catch

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:
      Comments, criticisms, and suggestions welcome!

      It's Krampus time! 🙂
      So, the challenge here was to use the Holiday Paint Set as the main/core palette.  Which turned out to be a no challenge at all.  This figure is pretty much calling for a certain palette to be used on it.  Never the less, the fun has been had with this one 🙂 
      All sorts of comments are always welcomed!
