I’m in just about the same situation as Ambrousis.  I am working almost 70 hours this week.  I did get one zombie wolf mostly done but i won’t have any more time to paint before Labor Day.

To all, I'll just keep banging away on the sets i have until anyone posts what the next two are.  

 

My plan is to start diving into some of these bigger monstrosities.  The more i get into painting the more i realize I'm not a fan of painting heroes.  Strange?  It's like the thing that drew me to the hobby, yet i find them the least fun.  

 

As things around the country keep escalating, I'm feeling less confident we'll be keeping things open much longer.  With flu season coming and covid going off the charts again, it might be we'll all hunker down to get some painting in soon.  I hope that is not the case, though. 

 

My goals this season: 

Halloween diorama

Try testing some paints on a warhammer kit

Prep xmas gifts

 

That's going to keep me nice and entertained between Paint Club and work.  Thankfully no more travel for a while. 

 

Good luck on your stuff, Team.  I hope we can all participate more in months ahead.

My plan for this Sunday is to paint my wolf and unseen servant, and then pick the next two 😆

 

I'll probably grab something from the featured monster series, and maybe Murkillor. I've been kinda eyeing him as next. 

 

I'm off all of next week, so if everything goes as planned, I'll be painting quite a bit. 

I also want to get some Halloween painting done, and the core set has some real cool minis I want to get some paint on.

Over the weekend, I hung out with my Dungeon Master and he made a request for me to paint up all my undead/zombies from bones 5 to use in our D&D campaign. Anyone have objections to painting a couple undead models for the next round?  I'll be trying to paint all the undead as soon as possible regardless of which minis get selected for the group(Im totally fine with whatever y'all want to do), but ill be starting with these in the meantime:

I like it!  Skellies it is!  Huzzah!

 

Dated and added to the paint club sheet.  Although, the numbers don't add up to the right thing.  Oh well, winging it.

Those should work out nicely for me.  My brother got me the GW death rattle skeletons for my birthday and I am finally done with working endless overtime. 
 

This is where I had to abandoned my undead wolf.  I will return to it and get some blood on those ribs and do some black lining around the mouth and put some rosy flesh tone in the inside of the ears.FFB11797-8DA0-4299-9474-A8BFBB4F0107.thumb.jpeg.fff97e02864f79643692862c78c2a1ae.jpegFEDD094C-8C13-482A-A58E-49554023C3D7.thumb.jpeg.d15e5491b56c8718da35461042c8c81f.jpeg7B010CEA-BDDF-4394-BD6E-19A7D9D389E3.thumb.jpeg.89bad6cb273c9676b6941a0decbb0ae2.jpeg

It's good to see everyone's pics of their wips and completed minis! I'm about done with my unseen servant, and just need to dry brush and pick out some details on the wolves.

 

But, in the ongoing saga of this year not being kind to me health-wise, I had to get an emergency root canal today because of a tooth that flared up earlier in the week, and no part of that has been pleasant. I'm out for the count today, and likely tomorrow, but hopefully I can get those two done, and start on the skellies soon after that.

I fixed the numbers. I thiught I'd already done that, but in all my wisdom, I fixed it in my local copy. They should be good in the shared sheet now.

I love how fast you're knocking these out, and at a fairly consistent level too! Nice work.

      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.

      This one took a lot more time than i planned.  2.5 nights of work.  The killer of it was all the layers with translucent paint.  Keeping them thin to not get streaking was difficult.   But i did it and it's done. 
       
      Proud moment for me is the eye.  
       
      Done!
