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...
Here is a figure I painted up as a character in what my group calls "the B team adventure" - which revolves around the supporting cast for a more standard party. She is the cook/maid. I like the townsfolk from the WIzkids set a lot better than the other humanoids I have painted from them, like the elves. They have a lot of character which makes up for the sometimes shallow detail. I'm proud of this one because she basically had no face and I painted one on with fair success I think.

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?
Time to paint a new Dragon. and whats a dragon without a WIP?
This will be My second largest painted Dragon, behind only DDS2. It will slip to 3rd when I get around to painting the KDM Dragon King, that boy is a Chonk.
My goal is two months - ie end of the year. otherwise I will have only finished one dragon this year, when normally I paint 3.
but white is so boring.
lets see what references I can find to spice it up.
Ooooh Mamma !
so to translate this into the figure ...
mint/pastel green tint on scales, pink in the creases.
the lizard above seems to have green around some scales and pink around others. im not really sure how to make that work.
time for some rough drafts.
Rule of thirds - all white surfaces should be 1/3 or less other colors, this way it should still read as white scales.
It could easily overwhelm the dragon, and lose the white designation . (ie DO NOT replicate the too green small lizard on the top.)
I don't need back legs on my sketch, patterns will be identical to the front legs.
Should I splatter with yellow? - it is either random color shift on scales or urine stains.
Entrail Pink mixed with white for the creases (red liner deepest shadow)
Green sky (vallejo) for the mint green, also 50/50 white. (green liner for darkest shadows)
Linen white as a base - Pure white for highlights.
Snow shadow (blue/white) for shadows on the scales.
The wings should be darker on above than below, and more pink , while the upper surface will be more green.
Simple Snow Base. The Dragon needs to be sturdy as it will join the collection that my Mini-Spawn plays with. It comes with a transparent pole, and attachment points to the base.
No need to reinvent the wheel.
I think I need to sleep on this before moving past the clean-up stage.
