Billeecats dude!  That looks awesome! You and crows did some cool work with the under bellies on the basillisks

Thank you! I'm calling him done now.

He was fun to paint! I wanted to paint him in the classic green and gold of basillisks from mythology. Gave me a chance to practice some glazing as well.

 

I knocked out this guy this weekend as well. I got extra constructs, and am looking forward to painting him again with a different color scheme.

I couldn't get to the bookkeeper, but I'll paint him alongside the unseen servant and the wolf. Those two aren't too complicated to paint, and the bookkeeper definitely lands in the too-fiddly category for me. 

 

 I'm also working on these two meanwhile.

Got some actual time in with the brush this weekend, and it feels great. I finished the basilisk, got 90% finished with the stag, and got some of my base coats blocked out on the moneylender.  Here are the WIPs and I'm thinking about the 2 new picks... the floating dude is making me want to try a trick for clear minis where you start off with a coat of brush-on sealer before applying inks or whatever. I bought a bottle of Privateer Press's formula P3 Turquoise ink and I'm dying to trying it out.

 

Anyone know other useful tricks for clear minis?

@Hibouagreed that money lender looks great.  The thing that may seem a small detail, but caught my eye was the leather stressing. Nice work! 

 

@crowsandbonesthere's a few things you can do on clear.   Depending on the effect you're going for, if you're wanting to keep the transparency, use a matte medium to "prime it".  It'll allow the next layer to bond.  I generally use FW inks for the transparent look and vibrant colors, but you could use paint as a wash too.

I actually skipped a few steps on the leather because I ran out of time.  For the next two weeks I am gonna try and paint up all my dread wolves.  I have 5 of various sizes.  My summer schedule should be letting up in a few weeks and allow for more paining time.

Took some bad pictures - I have to find a good place and rest my phone. I will try to get better photos for the next ones. I need basilisks in the desert to sneak up on my players -thus the color patterns. I finished the bookkeeper also, but I have no clue where he is hiding - he might have been put away while I was gathering stuff for ReaperCon. Or got vacuumed. Or went into the black hole that swallowed Mal'Drakar when I moved and now apparently my photo light box.

      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.
