Looking very good, though for me the standout is the ranger. Love the camouflage you achieved on the cloak.

Thanks everyone!  I appreciate the comments.  Lately most of my projects have been quantity over quality as I have to keep up with a new campaign.  I had to build a few pieces and parts to make their characters match the mini.  the halfling player wanted to use a Warhammer so I had to improvise ::D: 

 

I still have to keep remembering that the old bones 1 and 2 minis don't have much of a face.  it can get hard to get any expression on them (one of the reasons why we have a metal Lem rather than a bones Lem for the bard.)  fortunately the ranger's face is shrouded in shadow because he's a beard and a bunch of squiggles ^_^

 

This weekend project is terrain!  my wife and kids bought me some mantic and wizkids terrain crates for my birthday and my older son volunteered to help me paint it!

These make me nostalgic for my D&D playing days, I haven't painted an adventuring party in soooo long. Have to agree that painting faces on some Bones is a thankless task (but then it's the hardest part of most miniatures), but then you get the easy "convertibility" which you've made good use of here. Wondering if you plan to add "saltmarsh" to the bases or maybe just paint them "dungeon floor grey"?

The bases will get completed, unjust haven't figured out how.  The campaign is split pretty evenly between cavern/indoor terrain, onboard ship and the great outdoors.  Hard to choose stone, wood or marsh!

Nice set - really nice for 6 hours! My favorite is the elf thief - the face has a mischievous look...Bonus for getting minis to the table!

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).

      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
       
      Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
       
      For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
       
      All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...
       


       
      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...
