I’m starting my first of the kid heroes from the Bones 5 core set. I really like the character design with the sharp looking long coat, cool hair and bone sword.
I want to do something different with the skin on this one. I want to paint them as a moon elf, with cool undertones and warmer highlights.
im going to try basecoating with a blue and highlight up to pinkish highlight. Not sure if this is going to work.
Starting with a basecoat of ritterlich:dark elf at about 1:1.
This is along the lines of what I’m going for with the skin. Putting this here for reference.
This is one of the Townsfolk from the Bones 4 core set, sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
I tried a couple of new things on this one. I used clears (Magenta and Phthalo Blue) and Pure White to paint the dress, and the most complicated skin recipe I’ve ever used (3 Reaper and 3 S75 paints). The face turned out pretty well, so I decided to try painting makeup for the first time - she’s a courtesan after all. Also freehanded shoulder blades.
This is another mini that was meant to be a quick RCL paint job, but sort of grew legs. In retrospect I wish I’d gotten the metal version - I couldn’t do much with that seal flipper of a hand 🤣
palette with skin colors (front 2 rows):
The merfolk in Dark Depths sculpted by Bobby Jackson were one of the things I was most looking forward to in Bones 5.
I chose the Mermaid Ranger for my RCL Q3 Large Group “Under the Sea”, and started work on her after ReaperCon.
I've been trying to make bolder color choices, and thought this was a great mini to push myself in that direction.
I’ve posted some WIPs on discord, but wanted to record the process here in a bit more detail.
First I primed both rangers with Badger neutral primer, and then basecoated the tails and hair with 0963 Coal Black
Then I tried to airbrush the tails with 09330 Wild Violet while leaving some dark shadows.
Been working on these guys as a test for the squad color scheme. Trying some layering on the white, it's working out well so far.
They're 1:48 scale, same as Star Wars Legion, and I've rebased them onto the same 27mm bases that Legion uses. Mostly because the standard D1947 bases are like 35mm. Way huge.

Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me. 🤔
So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!
