Just pulled these out of the drawer.  One of these Orcs was next in line on the Bones I Kickstarter Rewards image, so I’ll try to squad-paint them together to save time. They have been cleaned of mold lines.  The spearman’s spear was very bent, as was the great sword.  So, those got weapon swapped with basic weapons from Bones 3.  Those are darker grey.  Washed them, so just waiting for them to dry.  Also had to gap fill spearman’s wrists.

First pass of base coat.  2:1 Troll Hide:Royal Purple.  The plan is then a mix of Troll Hide and Orc Skin, ending with Arctic Grey, and maybe some glazing of Royal Purple.

First model with the following skin tone:

2:1 Orc Skin:Arctic Grey.  Seems too stark for my taste, more like a highlight.  Will keep it for now for variation, but will try the next model with straight Orc Skin.

This is straight Orc Skin.  Still stark, but a little less harsh.  For a speed-paint warband, I think this will be fine.

Highlight with 1:1 Orc Skin:Arctic Grey.

I’m done with 4/6.  This is the stage where I think “I’d like to personalize these areas of skin with blemishes, scars, a tattoo,” but think I’ve got it looking nice, do I really want to risk it?

Trying to further liven things up.  I mixed 1:1 Orc Skin:Braiins Pink, and applied it to nose, ears, lips, elbows and knuckles.  Tough to really make it out, but it’s there.

Kavorgh looks like he’s been biting his shield.  Teeth are Ruddy Flesh, Dirty Bone, Linen White.

      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....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
