These are some excellent monster hunters! 44054, Damaris, is a lovely crossbow-packing lady with a saber, a fancy hat, and a fondness for skull-shaped ornaments. I went with a blue-and-silver scheme; black and grey might have worked better, but I wanted to color-code my Monster Hunters.

Here she is fighting a Vorvorlaka, 77631. The terror that flies by night, the winged monstrosity.
Always put silver in your crossbow bolts, just to be sure, but a wooden stick through the heart will kill most things, vampire or no.
44013, Jakob Knochengard, is magnificently grim and dour. Laden down with holy symbols and armor, potions and books. A perfect missing link between Solomon Kane and Abraham van Helsing.
Life tip: if you see someone holding a severed head, it does NOT mean you should trust them. But it DOES mean you should take them seriously.

Jakob loves two things: spending time with his family, and killing the undead. And he's all out of family, thanks to the aforementioned undead.
For Minivember I will try to do a different model each day (duplicates or similar models (from the same unit or suchlike still only count as one!).
If you want to see the rest of my minivember minis, feel free to have a look at my painting blog..I won't be posting each and every one here, just the Reaper minis and maybe some that I find especially interesting. Yes, they will be speedpaints, just like all my minis. Seeing as I am starting out a week late, I have some catching up to do...
Next up is the orange translucent Bones Burning Sphere.
Not all that much to say about this one.
The trick to paint translucent bones is to undercoat them with matt varnish so the plastic will accept paints and inks. I use Army Painter Anti-Shine spray for this.
I have heard that several brands of spray paint might cause some sort of reaction in the plastic, making them tacky or even flaking off. I personally have not experienced this, but I have experienced my usual miniatures paint (citadel, army painter, vallejo, reaper, etc) being rejected by the bare plastic.
I find that the Army Painter sprays work well on Bones in general. Apart from that I use Vallejo Acrylic Surface Primers -black and light grey- in my airbrush to undercoat most minis incluiding Bones. Works a charm. I make sure to wash said minis first in warm dishwash detergent-soapy water and an old tootbrush first to get rid of any remaining release compound from the casting process, and make sure thay are dry before priming.
