Great job, they look natural, I like that in animal minis.


Thanks! You'll be pleased to know that I spent a lot of time looking at pictures of actual lions :D

It shows.


I'm always amazed when I look at pics of real animals/insects and such for inspiration how much colours and shades there are.

It is a real eyeopener.

Same goes for trees and plants.


I mean lots of people paint bark brown and the leaves green.

Look at bark..there are dozens of shades of brown/green and grey in one piece.

I will make a mini look so much better when one pays attention to these things and learns from that.

I'm far from perfect, not a pro painter, but a little goes a long way sometimes.


Your Lions are proof of it, they look great. I recognize that small white dot under the eyes for example. 

Something that's often overlooked but it really enhances the mini since the real ones have that.

      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.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.

      Been wanting to paint this one for awhile. Love the dynamic pose! Really happy with this one.

      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
