Rolled a 25, Spear Down Skeletons:-

 

EdkDrFp.jpg

 

(Got several bony dudes to paint, so need to precisely record the paint scheme).

 

The scale-mail and shield is a base of Leather Brown, then Bronze, then a Brown Wash, then Verdigris (thinned 1:4 with water) and then a Bronze drybrush.

The rusty spearheads are also a base of Leather Brown, then a wash of Dry Rust, then a drybrush of Orange Fire.

Finally, they got a matt varnish to keep them dull.

Your bronze came out great! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

 

Thanks! You've got to remember to use Vallejos Game Effects Verdigris and not their Model Colour version, it's super gloopy!

Annoyingly, because I've already attached him to his base, I can't get the brush in to paint the inner sides of his trouser legs. I managed to reach enough so you can't see the unpainted parts without turning him upside down, but I know it's there and it's bugging the heck out of me.

A bit late in this thread but I find this brush from Princeton helps me to reach hard places like that.

Purple is always a good colour for the undead. Love it.

 

Thanks!

A bendy brush! I will have to see if I can find one.

 

Finished my skeletons, no piccys yet though as everything is packed away at the moment (We've got builders in for a few days).

Also rolled for the next mini, fate was determined I paint another skeleton (I rolled the Guard Captain, the Guard Sargent and even the Hanged Men AKA Dangly Skeletons) but wasn't in the mood. Finally I rolled a 1, Jelsen Darrock - Grizzled Vampire Hunter, who I will start next week when everything settles down.

Builders finished early (Yay!), so everything is unpacked and I can take piccys of skeletons:-

If/when I get the whole squad painted up they should look rather nifty.

 

 And here's Jelsen:-

There's a face somewhere in between that hat and upturned collar, should be "fun" to paint.

Those are beautiful mate!  I can't imagine painting with a bent brush, you would have to completely re-train your brain.  

 

Only critique I would give (and you are probably going to do it already), would be to dirty the purple up a bit towards to ends or where they are frayed.  Don't get me wrong, they are definitely beautiful as is!

I wasn't planning on doing anything more with my skellies, I tend not to weather my minis (I always worry I'm going to make a mess and ruin them). How would I dirty them up, just drybrush a bit of brown on the edges of their capes?

I would not dry brush them, instead to a thin glaze so you can work the color in and it will almost blend in with the purple.  Just build it up in a few layers, allowing it to get darker the closer to the edges of the cloth you get.  Then go back and do a very small highlight on the edges with a little white mixed in to your base color.

 

BUT... as I said before mate, they are beautiful as is and if you like them just let them be!

      As I mentioned in the thread on the Captain with Terminator Honours, here is the best painted Dreadnaught I have done, the trident symbol on the  front is the chapter insignia. Let me know what you think!

      I thought it would be cool to show off an older model I painted, this one is a vintage Space Marine Captain, painted in the colours of my own Chapter, the Sons of Poseidon.
       
      Comments and criticisms always wanted, let me know what you think! The model was painted using Army painter paints.

      Awhile back I was inspired by a gamer on the internet who had converted some Goblins into Gnomes. So I decided to try something similar but with my own style. Unsurprisingly, after I did this I found several other folks online had had similar ideas as well. Including JFA of Hagglethorn Hollow fame.

      A bit of greenstuff and a change in the usual colors… presto! Gnomes instead of Goblins.
       
      In hindsight if I was doing this again I think I would use different arms, weapons and shields on the two melee models but otherwise I am pleased with how they came out. Of course they are rather big Gnomes.
       
      The next Gnomes I convert will be from Wargames Atlantic Halfling Militia….

      Presenting Brutogg Corpse-Eater, my first finished adventurer from the game Cursed City by Games Workshop.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this guy, I experimented by giving him grey-hued skin to represent his unhealthy eating habits (he eats zombies) and it worked better than I thought it would.
      Annoyingly though, I had to leave the bits under his coat unpainted (just couldn't get a brush up there), nobody will notice unless they turn him upside down, but it still bothers me that he's technically "Unfinished".
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
