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.

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.

So are those two the first two we are painting as a group? 

 

I thought so. @R2ED picked these for the first round, and I figure we can all take turns picking the mini(s) of the week as we go.

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. 

 

Previous color from prior homeowner.

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.

      Done. 
       
      OSL effect.  Trying to make it look like he's lit from the campfire.

      Here we go! It's time to finally give me time to this OSL thing.  I saw this model and thought it'd be perfect to do as if this bugbear snuck up on a group of adventurers over their campfire.  
       
      I'll try to base this guy with a camp fire below him.  
       
      How's he look? 
       

       
      Here's him from the under-side:

      Still needs some basing, but he's off to a good start.
       

       
      Interesting how this worked out. 
      I did dry brushing on the first two layers of greens.  
      Then went back in with regular brush and layers, but didn't think it was loud enough.  What this?  A huge stock pile of BCA pink?  Better put it to use.  I mixed that into the alien green and base, then touched it up with pink to add some warmth (i mean as warm as aghast should be #dead) in the highlights.  Pink and green were a fun combo. 
       
      I'm not totally into the tattered shirt colors the more i look at it.  I may need to use a wash over it, which i try to avoid, to add some dirt/grime look to it.  It's too clean and vibrant. But hey, i did layer nicely. Win. 
       
      I wasn't sure about the facial features.  I ended up just touching it up with a little green yellow for discoloration around the mouth, but seems like he still needs something. 
       
      Next thing i need to do is make a fun base for him.  Something Halloween feeling for sure.  Thanks @Reaper_Jonfor the ghoulie bags and free minis.  Putting them to good use.

      This little guy is just a background piece so i wanted him to be simple.  I picked his color scheme to use red and green.  Someone mentioned to try shading green with red so i thought, why not?   His tunic is green shaded with red. 
       

       
      Testing a new style of painting with the deep shading around the eyes (because i wanted to be lazy... don't judge me).
       
      Would love your feedback.

      Normally i wait to post show off once I'm done basing.  In this case, I was just using it to test some colors.  
       
      Using the color wheel, i picked a triad i tight was fun.  I figured this gross figure needed a green belly.  From there i looked at what made up the triad: orange and purple.  Challenge accepted. 
       
      I took the green bottom and touched it up with a hint of purple.  Then took the orange and did the same on top. I noticed the orange didn't take to showing the detail well, so i added a hint of yellow in the mix and it helped contrast the shaded spots.  Still wanted more.   Made a light wash of that purple and filled in the sections and gaps in the chitin.  Worked well. 
       
      For a three color combo it sure does look weird, but also some how works.  I'm digging this color theory thing. 
       

       

       
      Here's the progress photos.
