So this past February, I got around to painting up these Bog Skeletons.  I was in need of more swamp zombies for Rangers of Shadow Deep and had these guys laying around and figured it was the perfect excuse for painting them.  Though I am a big fan of bog-bodies, I decided to lean more into a swampy look.  I figured they could be a bit more colorful and I got a strong vision of a green-tone horde of skellies.  Plus bogs are notorious for preserving bodies and these guys missing quite a bit of their flesh, organs, and hair.

 

 

 

Yeah, funny how the flesh and organs are gone but the clothing remains on a lot of skels. :poke:  These came out nice, I like the subtle variations in color, and how you did the rust effects and the bone.  Good basing, too.

Fantasy clothing fibers are notoriously resilient 😉 
Thanks for the compliments!  I am really proud of these guys.  Nice to know others enjoy them as well!

Excellent work.  Good mix of smooth layering, painted textures, and variation in the colors.

I appreciated reading about your process, such as how the inherent chaos of the corrosion freed you from the pressure to have clean or "perfect" results.

Keep on sharing,

Derek

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead, followed by Chaos and Reptilians.
      I already have my Lost World Project which tells a tale of Conquistadores, Reptilians, Dinosaurs, and a lot more. And has some Undead in Jungle and or Pirate style in it.
      My Shifting Sands project is all about Undead, Arabian and Egyptian style Undead.
       
      This thread will be filled with my beloved Gothic Undead, Demons, Monsters and all things that go bump in the night.
      In my Lost World Project I tell an ongoing story, here I will post about all other dark things without coherency.
      There might be snippets of loose stories to accompany a mini or not...
       
      I hope you guys and gals and creatures will like it.
       
      Let's kick off with the critters I painted a while ago to get a feel of what is coming.
       
      Enjoy! ( or not)
       
      Bats and a Murder of Crows
       
      EDIT: I will include some Bones and minis. The bulk will be metal and I want to give the project an oldschool vibe/.
      Preferred minis will be, Reaper, Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm, Metal Magic, Otherworld and Early Citadel.
      The Asian Undead will be from Zenith since I backed the Kensei Undead Samurai KS and will get their own thread.  ( Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon) and the Egyptian ones are in Shifting Sands Project)

      EDIT: Since the 3D printing bug bit me, the bulk will probably become 3d printed now.
       
      EDIT - Asked to merge my Undead Threads into one.
      Now CHILDREN of the NIGHT.
       
      This is for all the Ghotic Undead and their friends like Werewolves/Witches/Demons etc etc..

      The main block of the force I was working on in September...

      Emerging from the corn to defend the patch...



      ...and the whole force together...

      Woe to the Pumpkin Smashers!

      Hey everyone, here comes another set of Mousling. This on is 01512, Mousling Zombie. It was part of Reaper Artist Con 2010 Special Edition Figures sculpted by Gene Van Horne.

      One of the first figures I pulled out of the Bones5 core set was this guy. Had fun doing him in non traditional colors. 
       

       
      The flash made him look a little brighter than it really is.

      The companion unit to the archers presented earlier. 

      The back pumpkin is from a set of doll house decorations, the front two are from the Reaper pumpkin blister.

      Corn is made by JTT Scenery Products.

      The shields being large and mostly smooth were conductive to freehanding the pumpkins on.
