Another one bites the dust….😆

 

One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle.

And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish.  Oh well.

He looks good.

I agree with you on the glow from the ribcage area, it's really hard to see.

Thanks.
 

I may go back and try some things to make the glow pop. That is the advantage of the old soft quality Bones. If it goes sideways it isn’t a big deal. And my son is already excited to have a mini with grass tufts added to the toy box. He may need to make an appearance in one of his future Hero Kids adventures.

      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.

      When the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch on Halloween to bring toys and gifts to the deserving, and a painful smiting to the pumpkin smashers, it is vital that He should covering fire if He needs it....

      Four of these were among the first minis I painted for the Army of the Great Pumpkin, and I finally got around to getting them enough friends to make a unit. The large Jack O Lantern is from Reaper's pumpkin pack, I don't remember who manufactured the tree, I picked it up in the model railroad section of a hobby store sometime around 1997. There's also an Army Painter Wasteland Grass tuft. The fence was scratch made from balsa wood.

      Painted their shoulder skulls orange to represent the skulls of pumpkin smashers dyed with the remains of their innocent victims so as the pumpkin spirits can rest easy knowing they have been avenged...

      Both the older "white and bendy" Bones and the newer grey "better detailed and not bendy" Bones are in the unit.

      Later I need to spray primer the elf outta this so the leaves stay put.

      The increased detail of the grey Bones really made itself evident while painting these.

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Classic old school vampiress sculpt by Sandra Garrity.  Rawr!  She's a bit petite by current standards, so I built up her base just a bit.  But, oh, how that cloak flies!  And the ruffles edges on her shroud gown!

       
      I did the back in a cooler purple:
