Let's see if I can finish one of these for a change...  Of course I neglected to take good pictures of the early steps... 

 

Mossbeard assembled, "primed" with Sepia Liner, which after a year was kinda gloopy...  Thinned with a little airbrush thinner, it went on fine though and gave really good coverage and gave the figure a nice brown on top of the grey bones.  The green then got an overbrush with Jungle Mist and then a wash of Vallejo green wash.  The brown got a wash of Vallejo dark Grey Wash and some spots with Vallejo Rush Wash.  I've since started with a over/dry-brush of Wolf Grey over the wood.  Torso, head and one arm done.  He's a big one!

Not a ton of progress, but the grey has been finished on all the brown surfaces.  Planning a much lighter and targeted pass with a paler grey on the higher surfaces and around the face.  Moss areas got some light hits of yellow here and there.  B36544E1-0409-490E-BB67-0DDF573B21E0.thumb.jpeg.bc40d6e18e46ac7d1ce243f46ad0b0bf.jpeg

 

all the green areas areas will get a very light dry brush with an off-white then a thin wash of green, likely two tones, the vines-looking parts will get some darker greens and browns and then we’ll see.  Toying with trying to do glowing eyes...  we’ll see...

Also toying with picking up one of the clear fairies to have her flying out of the larger empty stump on his shoulder...  :upside:

 

Thanks for looking.

Still behind you on this one. I think I'm going to go with a darker green for the moss, but perhaps with some patches of different colors and maybe some "flowers". I'm starting to think that this looks more like a wood golem than a big ent, so I've been thinking about putting a "pilot" in that top hollow stump. Fantasy mecha FTW!

I love that idea!  Looking forward to seeing how you pull it off.

Did a first coat on the “vines”, some with a leather brown, others with an olive green.  

The mushrooms on his one leg got a coat of the leather brown as well. 

Some of the deeper or lower areas of moss got a light touch with the olive green and the bark got a light dry brush of a white/ochre mix around the face and on the higher peaks and transition points.

Still to come: an overall very light wash of a brown or grey, some highlights on the vines and then his face needs something...  more transition on the beard and maybe glowing eyes. 

 

Thanks for looking.

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
       
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

      Finished the Cave Spider. Inspiration image for colors (and blotter) for first image. Used a bit of Turbo Dork colorshft paint to try and get the hair shimmer that the real spider has.

      This week I finished "Arakus Landarzad, Wizard" from the "Grey Beards" set in the Bones 4 Core box. I tried a couple experiments with this guy; one was using purple for the shadows on the yellow robes, and the other was using Citadel Contrast Paint to do the gem on the staff.  To read more about it see: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2021/01/arakus-landarzad-wizard-bones-4-figure.html

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.
