Starting with a dry fit of 19507 Spiders of Emrith Kul encounter set.

Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.

Backdrop is a black cardstock.

19512 The Dwarf King's Crypt.

Not much to do here. The lid to the sarcophagus is bit warped on mine But water should take care. Remains pop in nicely. would have preferred a clear ghost instead of a blue one. Or at least The light green that's previously been established as "ghostly."

Kid wants to paint 19284 Arakoth the Ancient (spider) first. Purple like the tarantula in Scaredy Squirrel.


The sprues number the legs. Save yourself hassle and transfer before cutting if it's not straight to gluing. You will also want to base coat before assembly for some hard to reach places. That's why I didn't do a proper dry fit.20210712_214832.thumb.jpg.987ae4485ba02af17bc2d78967dc4a58.jpg


Here's a comparison with the Spiders of Emrith Kul.

And because the new interface is awful and not mobile friendly I lost my post like i do 50% of the time. Twice on this post.


19516 Shadows of ravenhome

3 figures need assembly - not pictured instructions lost to annoying.


And mixed with charnel pit.

While a smol was napping,  I glued the abdomen and primed that and the thorax (black with a dash of purple) and prined the base( black and green), and marked the legs. Tonight I glue the rest. And tomorrow a toddler will paint.

Yeah so I NEED to remove that navigation bar right above my keyboard. Some sites have it, these forums being one,  and it's making it impossible to use. I lose my posts regularly. I use mobile Firefox. What is Chrome like? Really finding the forum redesign unfriendly

Igh so the amount of cutting I've had to do to get legs to fit in any way is annoying. I'm not going to have time to even glue stuff. I will spend more time assembling this than painting it. That's the wrong ratio for me.

Looks like they're just loose... so cut and clean it will be. I just want to see if the stairs will fit assembled (sideways) in my storage before I do this. Might do it next for quick assembly.


And Arakoth is assembled and ready for toddler paint later ( I will prime legs and mandibles and fangs at lunch during naptime).

Fully primed. I would paint the rear legs before gluing too. Access is bad and it will be easy to get paint onto the body where you dont want it.

Here's  3 pics because I couldn't Get it to display the right color violet.

1 auto with black background


2 same as 1 but hue and saturation upped


3 auto with parchment paper as background, also sitting on the base20210714_133032.thumb.jpg.dd77fc2b1b1658759e2798fecc990c35.jpg

Someone decided to mix inks and things derailed from my plans faster than a D&D campaign


Pine green and light blue inks with buttermilk craft paint and matte medium which I spread around. I might revisit this idea for a water base. It feels like some sunlight refraction (Is that the right one?)


Stopped due to toddler boredom, broken front hand/mandible/whatever, and needing to revisit my plan.

Not toooooooo far off here, but I was hoping for wet blending time. I still got to spread around and blend a bit. Paint was slopped on in a few spots, and it would have been really cool if the kid had slipped more on. Anyway... things are lighter in spots than I wanted. I will have to see what I can do to update/return to plan.



At this point I think I'd recommend doing a basic highs and lows paint before attaching legs and finishing stuff up.

      Generally not impressed, likely to be my only purchasesin this line. Not close to terrain in quality.
      Edgerunners set G ( missing right arm for exec 3, waiting to hear back from MFC)

      Edgerunners F primed, media glued
      Guitarist leg broken in pack, waiting to hear back.  Looks too small to pin for me and won't glue on its own

      Keytarist primed manager glued

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      Just keep on plugging away at these bones 5 set.  So so so much to paint still. 
      Here we go.  The necromancer.

      I am going to say i hate bone white from vallejo.  That stuff has terrible coverage.  Chalky.   And thinning it makes it take forever to dry.  Not a fan.  Every time i is it i think, "i should mark this bottle with an x."  
      I wanted the cape to be darker red, but it still works.  I was nearly going to paint it purple and make her clothes red, but didn't.  She looks way way way too colorful for a necromancer, but it's what it is now.

      It's the weekend again and that means it's time to paint! 
      I feel my mountain of plastic is still pretty big but in looking at the spreadsheet for how many I've painted, i can see I've made good progress.
      Here's another one that needs to get based and completed.

      Battle Report! 
      All in all i think the colors worked how i had hoped.  I keep challenging myself to really put thought into her colors before starting. It helps guide me and make better choices on what's where and also have my paints ready on the palette so I'm not hunting. 
      *  pale flesh with 2 layers of flesh shade is a good foundation to build up from. 
      *  The green in the cape came out okay.  I still thinkni need to thin further. The jump between pale sand, which i used to lighten, was a big one when mixed into green. 
      * The yellow accents were cool and worked across the model. 
      * green, purple, yellow triad worked to bring life into this one.  
      * i can't figure out why when i look at this one it seems sloppy?  I invested time to be neat, but it just didn't show like i hoped.
      *  after getting nearly finished, i realized there was areas i didn't paint: sleeves between cloak and bracers,  arrow feathers, breast skin.   Do then i had to go back and try to do carefully. 
      *  The arrows look terrible. I need a good method on arrows to look good when they're all still in the quiver. 
      Here's her progress photos.

      And here is a quick paint of one of the Bones V Brinewind pirates - he's an NPC known as Jacob the uneven - a sailor with vitiligo. Not too bad for a speedpaint.
