Taking a hiatus on the Mocking Beast.

Trying to gain some victory in numbers on my Bonesium Horde.  I have completed the beetle swarms, spider swarms, and skeletons without WIP. 
 

I’m going to do the goblins now.  I plan two batches: one yellow/ochre, and the other tangerine.  Some nice “non-Greenskins.”

Several of these required boiling.  Some are still leaning.  The spears are straighter.  One of these was the beneficiary of a weapon swap.  I had given Danar, Male Assassin 77030 his shield for a spiked shield.  In return, we have a dual wielding goblin!

Always easier to see details after priming with Brown Liner.

 

My straightening technique for smaller figures, by the way:  put them in a microwave safe mug covered in water, heat for 3 minutes.  Pull them out one by one with tweezers.  Straighten the bent parts by hand.  Dunk them into ice water.  Check the result.  Let them sit in ice water until everyone is done.  If results are acceptable, toss them in the freezer for at least an hour. 
 

I seem to get less “Re-bend” after the sub-zero punishment.

These were some of the floppiest hardest minis I painted. Just didn't want to take paint well. At least now I'd have an idea of how to deal with it. I only did my pathfinder goblins green. I think my current goblinoid horde is about 50-60(also about 30+ orcs and 30+ kobolds). I approve of your decisions

Yeah.  My Pathfinders will be green to follow their art.  I think my Bones 3 and Bones 4 and Bones 5 goblins may get flesh, red, brown, and blue treatments.

Here’s what I’m thinking for skin tone.

The fourth pic is Sun Yellow with a little Rosy Highlight mixed in.  Not sure it adds much.  Overall, I think the skin color scheme is serviceable.  Also, not sure I’ll try to add eyes to these archers…

These guys the Pathfinder ones and some other Reaper goblins are what got be back into minis and wargaming.  I quite enjoyed painting them after the first Kickstarter.  Maybe it was just because they weren't the old GW orc boys and gobbos.

Skin base coats done.  Eyes done and cleaned up.  The archers get no eyes.  They are weirdly surfaced in the sculpt, so just going with “they are in shadow,” or “they flinch when they release their arrows.”

Thanks!

A little progress.  Finished the metallic steel.  Blackened Steel, Tarnished Steel, then Scale Color Heavy Metal.  These guys have the dual-wield “leader,” so they can keep bright weapons and armor.  I plan to rust/weather the metal for the other 9.

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      Next in line: 77049, Bones Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger.
       

       

      I tried priming with a 1:1 mix of Blue Liner:White Brush On Primer.  There were a few mold lines and casting valleys that showed up.  I put a layer of Brush On Sealer on them.  We’ll see how that worked.

      Venomous Flowers by PrintYourMonsters.  These are 3d resin prints.  Of course, they might also be only harmless spring flowers on some sci-fi world. 
       

       
      The smallest one is a bit over 1" across, the largest is taller than a humanoid figure.  Overall I've been very happy with the Plants and Rocks files.

      I only saw one thread about crackle paste when I searched these forums.
       
      So, I’m going to share how it’s going for me.
       
      I started with washed and dried 1” and 2” Reaper Bases.
       
      I put this garbage on a 2 inch base first.

      Don’t buy it.  I got it at Hobby Lobby at the time because they were out of Folk Art.
       
      To be clear, this is Crackle Medium.
      It is meant to be painted on a primed or rough surface I guess, and painted thin. I put it on kind of thick.  It didn’t crackle at all!
       
      So, I got a tub of this stuff on Amazon.

      The directions state “put over a thin layer of PVA glue.”  Pfft, who has time for that extra step?
       
      Here is the result on a washed but otherwise un prepped set of bases.

      1 inch
       

      2 inch.
       
      Lousy!
      So, the surface needs something for crackle paste to work right.
       

      This is a 1” base with a thin layer of PVA glue.
       

      This is a 1” base with just hitting it with 220 grit sandpaper and washing it again.
       
      I also used the 2” base with dried crackle medium on it.  Not pictured.

      This is a 2” base covered in black brush on primer.

      Here is the result on the 2” base over dried crackle medium.  It was hard to get the stuff into a uniform layer, as the medium created a very hydrophobic surface, so the paste slides around too easy.

      The finished version of the mini WiP I was sharing earlier today.
       
      I tried to use washes and played with basing this time around.
       
      Any suggestions would be great as I don't feel as proud for this one as I did the Dark Chronicler Astrid I did back on May.
