Here is a figure I painted up as a character in what my group calls "the B team adventure" - which revolves around the supporting cast for a more standard party. She is the cook/maid. I like the townsfolk from the WIzkids set a lot better than the other humanoids I have painted from them, like the elves. They have a lot of character which makes up for the sometimes shallow detail. I'm proud of this one because she basically had no face and I painted one on with fair success I think.
Arrgh! This week we be havin a dreadful lot o' ghostly pirates that'll be sendin shivers down yer timbers.
This accursed crew of damned delinquents are the Ghost Pirates from Bones 4, or the soon-to-be-released Ghosts of the Drowned Nymph (77745) and the Shades of the Drowned Nymph (77747). I painted these up similarly to the way I painted the spiritual glow of my Demi Lich. But I didn't want them to all just be blue so I went for a transitional look. As if they are materializing out of the ethereal plane. They may have looked fine either way, but I tend to enjoy lots of colors in my minis. I also chose to paint over nearly all of the translucent material. I think I'm officially in the paint-over-it camp.

These guys were quite a bit of fun to paint. Check out their WIP and my other piratey minis here.
Which ghost is your favorite?
Also, where do you stand on the translucent mini debate? Paint over them? Washes and drybrush? Or leave them as is?
was having trouble even picking colors for the sage, then the name Beesbury wandered though my head.
lets try some free hand!
Old Nan was just a quick study. mostly the bone triad, and then 4 different browns.
Next up ill pint the male beggar with a 4 color pallet, I bet it will be just as effective.
Hello again. Here's another older paintjob of mine. This is the wyvern from the Bones 4 Core set.
My players encountered a flock of Wyverns while traversing a desert valley. They were mounted on Giant Lizards and were chased by the wyverns. What ensued was an Indiana Jones-esque chase complete with daring leaps from mount to mount. All-in-all a good time.
As such, I decided to paint this guy up to fit into an arid desert landscape. Had a lot of fun blending the sculpted base into the rest of the base. Also was really proud of the coloration I settled on for the Wyvern.
I painted each scale individually, which was time consuming but worth it. I also tried some different glazing and layering techniques to add veining into the wings. Needless to say, I'm pretty proud of this one. Wish I had snagged up Blacksting during the Kickstarter as well though. Will have to get my hands on that one eventually.
