@Inarah you never cease to amaze me with how prolific of a painter you are, and how good your "just for the table" work is (much better than mine). My unpainted mini horde is about to mutiny against me and join yours.

Thanks. 

 

There's no trick to it, just paint.  This guy was done with lots of brown liner applied with a wide brush, and lots of gold metal drybrushed with the same wide brush. 

 

I paint gaming minis so I don't stress over perfection.  If I get stuck I set it aside and work on something else. Sometimes I just finish it anyway and call it a color experiment.   I work in batches, so there's a handful being prepped, a handful with primer on, a handful in partial stages of painting, a handful ready to get spray sealed when our atmosphere changes from water back to air.  Always something at some stage to get worked on.  Eventually I finish stuff.

Ice effect worked out very well - what colors?

 

I'm not sure I remember. It looks like Surf Aqua highlighted with white, and shaded with Ritterlich. Those are colors I'm likely to have used.

 

In retrospect, I would reverse the colors and make the whole blade dark and use the brighter color around the runes so it looked like it was glowing from the center, which would be white.

      Painted a bunch of Lannisters this week including both soldiers and charactera. Tyrion's sculpt has surprisingly great face and was interesting to paint overall :)

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....
