Looks like you did a nice job!

 

Yeah, Reapers’ painting tutorial kits are pretty cool (To be sure, given where you are people are likely to say that, aren’t we ...)

 

Good luck with the next one! I hope you have an enjoyable time with the hobby.

Welcome to the Forum!

 

Good start, the skellie looks very nice!

 

Start a WIP thread for the next mini and people will give advice when you want it, cheer you on etc.

I also recommend watching some youtube vids on the subject of painting fantasy miniatures and look around here to see what people do.

 

Most important, HAVE FUN!

I guess there's nothing for you but to buy the Layer Up kit also(big hint; the kits are made up so that together they're pretty much a complete beginner's paintkit with a decent selection of paints.)   

 

There's a 'Welcome' thread in the off-topic section you may want to read. Lots of fun stuff. 

 

If you decide to continue, you may want to check the Bones 5 Pledge Manager.

You definitely have one of the best looking mini holders out there! As someone who started a couple years ago on the LTPK as well, just set your own goals, don’t judge your paint jobs compared to others (there are some fantastic artists in here) Most importantly, have fun. Paint the way you want to paint, challenge yourself in your own way on your own timeline.

Nice pile of supplies!  Look forward to seeing the results of your efforts in Show Off. 

 

I'm not trapped inside, and my paint station looks like this:

If I paint anything, it will be this:

But really, right now I am busy with this:

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.

      Finally got around to painting some Bones sci-fi... painting the flat panel armor was a new thing for me. Used a mix of Reaper, Vallejo, and Contrast Paint, and some washes here and there..

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 



       
       
      One down and thousands to go! 😀

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.
