Did anyone have the link to the correct version of the number to mini spreadsheet?  I pulled that from one that was posted by another member, but clearly it didn't match. 

I think the numbers on our sheet are just off by 4. For example, the core set numbering starts at 1005 instead of 1001. It should be easy enough to fix. I can do that.

@crowsandbones would you post a pic of the two you chose? I have seen a few of these spreadsheets that aren't lining up for what piece is the actual one.  I think it should be obvious, given the two you said, but safer to just show them.   Also your blue match on the robes to the wrappings worked well.   I tried using colors from the new batch of paints.  I tried ashen brown... hated it.  It's so thin! 

@billeecats is correct about my choices, and thanks for sharing the pics for me!

 

@R2ED thanks! That's interesting about the Ashen Brown, I havent tried it yet but I have high hopes since it is a recreation of the highlight color to my all time favorite brown, Volcano Brown. I wanted to use it on my pirate ship, will have to test it out first. The pain of missing out on the brinewind extras sloop is tangible right now, haha!

Who is painting what for the month of August? I am thinking of painting the monument with the spiders or the vampire ruins. It depends on how much grey paint I have. I am almost out of a bottle of Americana french blue grey. It is the same paint I used on the Dragons dont share ruins. Since I want the vampire ruins to match those. I will probably start with that. The one with the spiders would kind of fit in, but probably doesnt need to match the other pieces. I am thinking it would be useful for a game like Rangers of Shadow Deep as a stand alone piece. The bridge could also be a different color/texture than what I have been using.

@buckyballhey, dude check out the earlier posts.  

 

What we have been doing is picking 2 models each week to complete.  You can do one or both, your choice.  We start on Monday and go through Sunday.  This week it was the book keeper and the basilisk. (See above example) 

 

For this upcoming week, the person who finishes theirs (not me) gets to pick the next two models.  We will do August like this and then change things up a little in September. 

 

Think you can knock out the bookkeeper or the basilisk? If you do it first you get to pick for the group.  Although, if your want to paint your selections, you could.

And to add real quick to that, we're a bit staggered, because not everyone started on the first two models last week. For example I started work on the grim reaper, and will finish him and the stag this weekend, and then start work on the bookkeeper and the basilisk. I probably won't be done with those two until next weekend. 

 

In other news... Most of my time today was spent cleaning my office. My painting area is a little makeshift, but it'll do for now. 

The two bins under the painting desk are all my Bones 5 minis...

@billeecats i didn't even intend for both models to be finished each week.  Just kind ofkindhoice of this or that for variety.  Call me crazy, but i like to do them both. 

 

Also i noticed on that picture the gloves, but no airbrush.  Do you paint with gloves on all the time? What is that grid in your wet palette? 

 

So interesting for me to see how people work, what they have to work with, and tools they use.

I usually wear a glove on my left hand, and use that hand as a test bed to check the thinness of my paints. 

 

The grid on my wet palette is a silicon trivet, that I sometimes use as a palette when I'm painting only for a short time. It's acts as a makeshift well palette in a pinch. Here's a pic of what it looks like right now.

My airbrush is a tiny little portable thing, if you zoom in you can see the top of it behind my brushes. (Yes I have a lot of brushes, not all of them are great, and some are totally untouched.)

 

My back is complaining after all the cleaning around the house I did today, so I only painted for a little while tonight. Here's progress on the reaper, he's getting close to done, but I am not happy with the hourglass, so I'll tinker with that a bit.

      Okay, so maybe he's not smelling his cloak.  But it sure did make a fun alternate for why he's posed like that. 
       

       
      I didn't do my normal battle report because i neglected to take photos while i was going.  I'm happy with this guy.  Kept it very very simple.  I'll still have to base him and a little clean up on the cloak, but overall I'm happy with him.

      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.
