My Bones 5 order has arrived!!! OMG IM SO STOKED! So far I can only do the initial damage inspection - my pirate ship box has a nasty dent, but the ship itself seems unharmed. Alas I am at work(had my order shipped to my job because our neighborhood has had package thieves in the past) so inventory will have to wait until tonight. I snuck a peek and noticed that I got Sophie's Lucky Dice... I cannot explain why I'm so excited to have them... they will live behind my DM screen forever now.

I think we had decided to start with Death and/or the Celestial Stag for our first figures. Which of the two dudes with scythes is Death? The one holding an hourglass or the one swinging the scythe? To be safe I am prepping both.

 

My shelves of shame are now officially a room of shame.  I think I will be bring several large totes to ReaperCon just so that I can use every spare minute to get painting done.

Alright, Team.  I'm unboxed mostly.  I spent a money of hours just going through these beauties.  However, my paint station is wrecked because I'm moving stuff around to make a new space.  I'm aiming for Sunday completion.  

 

This is a great thing to have all our stuff and everyone's jazzed.

I haven't found my dice yet, I think I might be one of the ones that didn't get one. I'll email reaper about them and any other issues I have once I finish going through them all. Though if the dice is all I'm missing I might just skip it. I know its wrong to say, but I've got plenty of dice as it is.

1 hour ago, buckyball said:

You gonna paint those miniatures or whistle Dixie?

LOL, dunno about him, but I whistled. While I assembled. :lol:

 

I've got most of my core set assembled now, except a handful of minis that I want to basecoat before assembly. The expansion sets are more or less all pre-assembled, except for the larger minis. I do still need to go through each expansion properly, but I don't *think* I am missing anything from my order except two sets of 2" bases. 

 

The celestial stag and grim reaper have now appeared on my painting table.

I picked those two so you can pick which one (or both)  you want to do.  Trying to keep a variety each week will be good so it's not only one type.  Just finished pulling out the bolt in shelving that was in this closet (soon to be office), spackled the holes, and painted.  Next up, trim. Then i get to fill it with my stuff.  Wooo hooo.

I had a lot of conference calls this week so I was able to do some assembling - I am on my second bottle of gorilla glue. The pile next to my desk seems undiminished. I still have the majority of the core set and a big bag from the various expansions. Sadly, I have to do actual work today and my assembly has come to a temporary halt. The weekend will be dedicated to organizing I think and hopefully painting. I have started base coating the Reaper and have some ideas for the stag.

 

And I just got a box of MORE stuff from Dungeons and Lasers - buried in plastic.

      Since i didn't have my paints with me while on break, i was hungry to get back to it.  I guess i wasn't as full of turkey and stuffing as i thought. 
       

       
      As I'm posting this, i saw on his left leg that he's got an unpainted seal.  Dang it! 
       
      I made the bands on the blade smaller. 
      Added more metal details. 
      Added more accent color. 
      Tested two new paint color (silver grey, red. And German Grey). Each did great. 
       
      His backpack gave me some trouble.  I was gluing it on, but the post didn't push in and then it broke off.  Ended up doing some surgery back the but it's on.

      Got another one in this week.  I'm on a roll!
       
      Still doing my work on these marines looking for a color combo I really like.  I completed Red, Blue, Green, and Black.  I've got 2 more color schemes to test, which are Grey and White.  We'll see in the coming days how much energy I've got for them.
       
      This one came out pretty good. 

       
      I still need to base and touch up his sword with more color, but he's pretty much done outside of that.  Enough for me to post in WIP.
       
      The process was pretty good and I'm learning that these sub-assemblies help a TON in getting to those insanely hard to reach spots.  I took pictures of what the sub assembly looks like just to what my method was and hopefully helps others struggling.

      Finished the Paint job on another marine.  I'll need to come up with a cool base.  I planned out this time black, red, yellow, blue colors. 
       
      Here's the first one of this set up. 

       
      Here's the purebred. 
       
      Give me feedback.  If you'd like this black background let me know.

      Just keep on plugging away at these bones 5 set.  So so so much to paint still. 
       
      Here we go.  The necromancer.

       
      I am going to say i hate bone white from vallejo.  That stuff has terrible coverage.  Chalky.   And thinning it makes it take forever to dry.  Not a fan.  Every time i is it i think, "i should mark this bottle with an x."  
       
      I wanted the cape to be darker red, but it still works.  I was nearly going to paint it purple and make her clothes red, but didn't.  She looks way way way too colorful for a necromancer, but it's what it is now.

      Got the first set of 5 done.  I bought 5 Santas (one was in my bones 5), 4 Mrs. Claus, 4 Christmas mouselings.   I'm preparing a holiday ornament and diorama for friends to give them. 
       
      Santa is now complete, but still need to get him on his base with Mrs. Claus.
       

       
       
      Battle Report! 
       
       
      I painted my first santa with a black primer.   It took about 4 or 5 layers to get red to actually show and not look washed out.  I just happened across a youtube video where Paintman Journeying was talking about how laying pink under red will help coverage and saturation.   Was worth a try for how many red clothes characters i was about to do. 
       
      WORKS AMAZING.  
       
      I then took all of them to base coat with airbrush. And not only that, it gave me a great way to go through more of the BCA pink i have 5 bottles of.   Finally i can use it on more things!   Warning for others: BCA pink has weird coverage. It's very very very very chalky. I hadn't noticed it on my small parts i use to paint it on like tongues or trinkets, but on big areas i really noticed.  
       
      The assembly like setup on these worked great. Painted in this order:
      Coat, pants, hat first. 
      Santa's gift bag (different red)  next. 
      Cream trims next. 
      Face.
      Teddy bear.
      Washes on face and bear. 
      Gloves, boots, and belt. 
      Packages and trim. 
       
      So far so good.
