Looks great! Gauth is known to be a bit of a pain to paint (and keep standing) but I like what you've done here. The fleshy inside of the wings is a nice contrast.

I noticed the trouble getting him to stay standing! That's why for a base I used a blank CD, and glued down the tip of his tail to keep him at least mostly upright!

@deathly halliwell and @Rickdraco agreed with both of you.  I think this paint job looks fun, but i learned my lesson to on keeping this thing vertical.  I when glued his wings together as if extended above his head.  i havent figured out how to keep him up.  He ends up eating the ground.  I thought pinning his tail back would counterbalance him, but his legs give out.  I think it's a lost cause for me.  Just good practice, but will need to toss and not look back.  

 

I did the CD thing, too for holding him and it worked well. Until he ultimately folded over.  Wah wah.

I think I remember reading somewhere (this forum, very likely) that the best way to keep him upright is to pin his legs to the base. Might require a long-ish pin, and careful drilling. I'm going to attempt this when I assemble mine. YMMV.

      and the last of this month's work, pretty sure can't see another one out of me with only half a day left. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. I gave up my blue for that stupid hellborn skag Skarre, now what color do I choose. While looking at pirate pics for ideas I noticed alot of them were deplicted as wearing brown alot but could recall seeing any or hardly any pirate mini's painted as such, so....

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. While scrounging around my loose mini's I came across her, don't know what happened to the wraiths but decieded to paint her alone....hehe no choice without the wraiths. She always reminded me of someone and wanted no needed to due her as such as i could, so without further ado....
       
      ....A.K.A. "the Scarlet Witch"
       
      I wanted her to be at least more sinster looking thinking about going back and giving her a purple eye shadow maybe that will help with the over all look of the face.

      Last of this month's work. I know said was gonna take a break for the holidays but got bored. When i first got her i noticed she was so danity, so skinny it felt like I was painting a 25mm.
      What I planned to be an easy paint job turned into any but.

      Presenting my first finished Bones V Kickstarter mini, the mighty Hercules!
       
      I don't get much painting time these days, so he's a little rough and rushed in places, but he's done and he doesn't look too bad.
