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. 

Welcome to the most supportive forum I’ve ever seen

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:

      Another one bites the dust….😆
      One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle. 

      And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish.  Oh well.

      Newbie post. I've only painted half a dozen or so figures so far, but I'm enjoying myself, and that counts, right?! 
      She's painted with a mix of Reaper MSP and Vallejo Game Color. I haven't done so yet, but I think I'd like to start chronicling the colors I use for each future mini.

      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.
