Imps and Quasits (Bones Hordlings-77335, and Nolzur's)


Recommended Posts

Great work!

 

Smallest I paint is 6mm - GW Epic stuff, and 6mm Napoleonic

and 10mm Historical (Ancient, Roman, Dark Ages, and Renaissance)

 

I find it helpful to paint the 6mm as units rather than individual figures,

think of a base/stand of 10 figures as the "figure"

I also like the look of each base of figs being a small diorama

(at work so can't link pics)

That makes a lot of sense.  I bet it's easier to make the whole cohesive unit look good, as opposed to one tiny figure.

Oh boy.  My head aches imagining the kind of eye-strain that would cause!

smallest ones I have painted are either the 10mm CAV troopers or the grippli minis from Stonhaven (those are really tiny!)

 

Nice job on these, I really like how they came out!

      I can't begin to tell you how excited i am that my parents found these in the basement in some supplies i had stored.  These are Ral Partha models from 1988 to 1991. I bought them with my allowance back when i was like 9 or 10 and am thrilled to see these again.  I remember being so afraid to paint them because i didn't want to mess them up, that i never ever tried.  
       
      These are primed and need to be stripped. These are early pewter-white metal.  They even had packaging that read "now lead free". 
       
      What I'm wanting to do is savor the joy of painting them, now that I'm way more capable.  However...i need to get this crappy primer off of them.  These are 30+ years old and I'm blown away they look as good as they do.  
       
      Anyone have a solution that can strip this down to the metal?

      Hi everyone.  Got a couple more demons for you today.  This is a pair of Bones Fly Demons for use as Chasme in D&D.  These guys could also serve double duty as Giant Flies for Rangers of Shadow Deep.
       

       
      More Below the Spoiler:
       
      Feel free to check out more of my demons and devils in my Blood War project HERE.

      If anyone has any leads on other interesting giant fly minis please share them, as I've been finding it difficult to find good models for RoSD.

      Also, how do you paint insect wings?  They're such a unique feature in the animal kingdom and I'd love to see how you go about it?

      Continuing my posting spree. This beholder is the fist model I have printed and painted. I went for a very simple,  classic look, and I was really pleased with the bright purples. I have been enjoying MZ's catalog, but man, printing stuff is a lot of work.
       
      I really enjoy painting eyes, so this subject was a treat.The Spectator is now on my shortlist to paint thanks to the positive experience I had with the dodgeball of doom.

      More demonic fun today.  I was in need of some Bulezau to greet my players as they first entered the Abyss.  D&D lore describes Bulezau as gaunt minotaur-like creatures.  The Beastman Warriors would have also been a great stand-in for this, but I was working with what I had on hand, which happened to be the Minitaurs from Bones 4.  I didn't bother with the 4th minitaur as it didn't match the rest of the set, and I had a single evening to get them finished.
       

       
      A little shorter and stockier than described, they still fit the mold as not-quite-a-minotaur.  I've said it before, but I'll say it again, I love the newer sculpts that were so prevalent in Bones 4.  They're less clutter, have larger smooth surfaces, and in general just lend themselves well to simple smooth paint jobs.  Lots of room for letting the paint add detail, and less time spent squinting at strange shapes.

      What unconventional uses have you found for minis?  Any monsters you've repurposed to meet your needs?
