Bonesylvanian high holidays

Recommended Posts

The basics. Both Bonesylvanian sets and Mr & Mrs Bones + vulture unpainted.  The 2nd batch with the mummy had to be reboiled.






Then I primed the vamps and Frankie with grey /green/medium and washed /lined with blue liner and medium. 20191014_155440.thumb.jpg.698550780ca6e53cb2fff5b53ba8d1cc.jpg

Then a bit of vampiric skin and sample green for Frankie. 20191014_155517.thumb.jpg.15a3c5b28009a007f364a5e878a35929.jpg

Then a quick turquoise and medium wash on vamp skin followed by more vampiric skin20191014_154725.thumb.jpg.72f3504a2b1f66b4bca85ec3e2b58a15.jpg

Some more base coating.

Lady vamp is being based on author Hilary Monahan's current Twitter profile pic. Go eye makeup attempt.

clothing is a bit more purple than intended but that's ok.

A slightly better pic of the vamps and some really simple work on the casper ghost. Maggot white and a Russian army highlight colour as base and step up and down for basic highlight and shadow. Chain basecoats in black green.

I'm thinking a wash of alien goo on the Ghost then drybrush of spectral glow on the chains.

I want il reference this paint job on the metal (01537) version of Gus (77601). I can't une the original sample paint.

Not sure if I want to do more (alien goo wash). This is 4 shades of green.

Bottle spill of my commonly used creamy ivory and then a wash that was too red, and some cross contamination of colours led to me calling it a night.

Still don't know what to do with this melty mess


And here's the boney guys.


And before that I did a little on the vamp hair. 20191026_222815.thumb.jpg.d9051421a204a250c53cbd84f34f3683.jpg

      My wife asked if I wanted a leftover tube from a bolt of fabric. It's much thicker than paper towel - at least standard foamcore - and at 32 inches, would give me enough for a 12 inch lighthouse and 4 5 inch towers.

      Since I suggested it, I guess I'll do it...
      Here's a thread to discuss what horror movies, books, shows, comics, and etc that you're looking forward to watching during the holiday.
      I'm actually thinking about doing a Scooby-Doo movie marathon:
      Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island
      Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost
      Scooby-Doo Meets KISS: A Magical Mystery (yes, this movie exists)
      Scooby-Doo and the Curse of the 13th Ghost
      What about the rest of you?

      Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics.

      Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's.
      They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. 

      They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would do the trick. 

      They come in a mix of sizes but they all look pretty good at 28mm scale. The cutting mat has half-inch squares.
      Most of the pumpkins are of the artistically exaggerated size compared to a mini, and the smaller ones tend to be darker and a bit more mishapen. The coloration in them is pretty decent. I think they could use a layer of highlights but if you're in a hurry or making a huge pumpkin patch, then they look just fine. 
      Anyways, I hope this is useful for someone!

      So I salvaged this bit of 16×20 particle board from a broken picture frame. I'll be using some of my foam core to make a city square/crossroads board with my foam rollers. Something for city games that isn't too time consuming, but is also good for a wide spread of genres with the proper buildings and scatter
      The tough part will be steaming off the paper and cutting down the various bits for rolling.

      I have been painting these as long as the others, but have lots of photo cropping.
      Currently painting the sacrificial victim from the Islanders set of Children of the Field... it was separate from the rest of my minis from that kickstarter.
      And also a (n unofficial) time lord companion for a variety of "normal" female minis.
