44003 Bones Black Ziba Efreeti

Recommended Posts

Thanks to this thread I finally figured out how to assemble this mini. If you are at all hesitant, please look at it, especially the excellent step by step on page 2 (h/t @Mad Jack).

Things have been scrubbed,  and I have some idea of the color scheme.

Dusky skin triad and maroon red/cinnamon red for the skin, and hexed lichen/witchcraft purple/warlord purple for the tabard. Not sure about the metal yet.

What do you mean I worked on some mold lines ?20200228_144831.thumb.jpg.1fea1f1323f28ad3e89ee5e929f51260.jpg

After fixing the basecoat, I noticed lots of rubbing. 20200228_144750.thumb.jpg.dbdc73850a276e2a173fda912e1586bb.jpg

Did some more base coats then went back and patched stuff up including the bangs I'd added below.

I intend to do the hair  fire style, so the yellows will be on he bottom.

After waiting for that to dry I added a coat of matte medium to be the first thing to rub.

So preventatively, what can I do to differentiate the skin and clothes? I intend to line, the clothes will be brighter in a pink hue, the skin will be brighter with red. They currently look a bit samey in these pics.

Some more base coating.  Hopefully this helps with the moar contrasts.

The green is Cayman green. Plan on dry brushing antique gold then using am olive wash.

The indigo is ultraviolet shadow w/rainy grey 1/1.

Indigo will get a silver/steel type thing. I might try to do flames (reflections of flame from hair?) on the swords if I feel like pushing things. Any ody got a good example for more than just OSL?

I did some painting of metallics - drybrush of antique gold over the Cayman green, very subtle highlighting on the blue armor. For consistency, I'm thinking of changing the tunic/skirt/tabard to the same combo with the ultramarine. Thoughts? I love that purple but don't think it fits.

Pretty much clothing and horns and bone/skulls left.

I also did a sepia wash on the bone. Soon I'll be gluing, doing touch ups, and ready for game next wednesday.

So, no going back (because I dont want to do the work, but also it looks better).

Horns, base, seal, glue, touchups, varnish.

I'm calling it because it's awkward to glue properly. I was unable to get it to fit,  and so the head isn't on well. I will probably sell or avoid any miniature that's cut this way in future. I really like the paint job, but this has been really disappointing. I consider it ruined because its cut in some super awkward way that requires forcing and angling.

      One of my more successful attempts at NMM.

      So I'm finally getting to the terrain for my graveyard set. I've washed the crypt and the fences. I got an extra set of fences, and I think I'm missing 1 short fence,  because I have 5 of those, and everything else is even in number (doubled). Can anyone else who got both during Bones 3 confirm if they had 5 or 6?
      Here's stuff having a soak.

      Somewhere I have my Bones 4 toppers, but I'm not going to worry about that right now.
      I'm debating putting stuff on large tongue depressors and making stuff modular... though that would leave some gaps if I make a fence around something specific,  as opposed to a representative "fence." Anybody try it and abandon?

      Blightfang in the Meadow - inspired by the children's book "A Lion In The Meadow." See the WIP here.
      A VERY brief altered retelling

      And now for the mini (Blightfang chases its tail):

      And some close ups to show the details and the flock (first time and I'm pretty proud of the results).

      I decided to do some basecoats on my bonus vulture. He is party turkey vulture (red neck, and the whichbparts of the wings are light and dark, and part other vulture-the white collar).
      Dusky skin shadow 3:  dusky skin 2 for most of the dark colors. Dusky skin highlight for the lights. Cinnamon red for neck and claws.
      Wings were drybrushed with ds highlight and then had another coat of base mix applied they to leave the definition from drybrush. Light parts of wing were lined with brown liner,  then touched up with ds highlight. Tombstone is somber grey.

      This is a really early placeholder, because I have inspiration pictures, and who knows if the  book will be lost when I'm ready. I need to find my dragon.
      I'm also inspired by (I think it was @Corporea  's chibi coco lion?)
      Would love any tips for preparation and how to deal with scales with my chosen pattern (paisley).
