Do you know what helps? Banishing 80% of the pile of shame into a wardrobe. Then it looks more managable and you stay motivated to keep going!

 

Thats at least what i do. Right know i only have 30 miniatures in my pile of shame (*cough* and 120 more in my wardrobe). No i am not lying to my self in any way shape or form...

Very nice!

Thanks Glitterwolf. I get that squad of Bones Marines off my painting desk, then I can start working on some fun stuff again.

This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame.

One down and thousands TWENTY to go! 😀

 

As satisfying as black can be, it's good to get into other colors.  I can't imagine that everyone in history wore as much black as we tend to paint.

 

FIFY.  :poke:

Yup, I agree.

Good work. 

Thanks Strawhat and Chaoswolf. I think that is the beauty of these poor quality early Bones minis. There isn’t a downside to trying odd schemes.

      My 8 year old son painted these shortly after his birthday last spring. I actually liked his colors and the pattern on the Carnotaurus. Mostly I was over joyed that he didn’t glob the paint on for once. A few weeks ago I decided to paint the eyes, teeth, claws, and base for him. Them a coat of sealer.  I think they look great for the toy box. Here are my crappy before and after.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Another zen of Bones…i.e. not a lot of effort and didn’t remove all the mold lines, but it is good enough to play with. The colors are a tad washed out using the Reaper portable light box. I thinkI am going to spray paint the inside black to quit messing with the exposure on my iPad. 

      Anyways, here he is. C&C welcome. 



      Cheers-Mike

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.

      Finally got around to painting some Bones sci-fi... painting the flat panel armor was a new thing for me. Used a mix of Reaper, Vallejo, and Contrast Paint, and some washes here and there..
