Very nice use of graveyard elements on the base.  I feel like the skeleton itself could use some more decoration on the arms, torso, and other areas to incorporate the theme into  the whole piece. 

That's a good idea. Thanks!

      Hey everyone, here's a 77530, Harrowgate graveyard short fence sculpter by Bob Ridolfi. I used this fence to test the colors that I'll use on my gothic church.
       
      Here is the list of colors I used;

      Finally I can reveal my entry for the 2. Quarterly Reaper Miniatures painting contest. I am very pleased with the results and even placed fourth. The competition was strong as per usual and very impressive freehands as well as glow effects made the top three stand out.
       
      Rhianna is based on Reaper Miniatures Avatar of Resilience. I changed quite a bit about the miniature to fit the urban fantasy theme: New weapons, including a scratch-build pump gun, pants, leather straps across the chest and more.
       
      I had lots of fun converting this mini and painting her was also a good, if challenging experience. Pink is not usually a colour I choose, but here it really works. I used Kimera Colours Magenta with a bit of The White as a base colour. That was crazy vibrant, so I desaturated it with some grey. For the shadows I mixed some Purple into the Magenta which really helped to make it pop. Finally, highlights were applied using a baby pink.
       
      I had trouble getting the right look for the Juicy logo, but ended up using metallics for it. Micro dots failed and had to be painted over again.
      The small labels and garbage were also a first. The labels are all freehands and distressed afterwards. The cigarettes are small styrene strips and the Pepsi can made from some aluminium foil.
       
      So a few questions to spark discussion:
       
      How do you go about sequin, glitter or fake 'crystals' on miniatures? What is your favourite recipe for pink?

      Hey everyone, I completed another one Yesterday. Some more orange... on a completely different model. She reminded me of Red Sonja so I decided to paint her hair fiery red.
      This is 02759, Dena the Barbarian sculpted by Dennis Mize.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      The Gravestone of Protection 77539 was sculpted by Julie Guthrie and the Shrine is a 3d print by Aleda at Gothic Things.

      I finished up the two figures on the left this weekend, and the other one last month (although I didn’t post a picture at the time).
       
      They are the three members of a package originally sold by Ral Partha as 02-946, Champions, from the “All Things Dark and Dangerous” range sculpted by Julie Guthrie.
       
       

       

       
       
      I don’t especially need more fighters to support my hypothetical D&D game, but I had them on hand and primed them near the start of the pandemic.  I won them in an Ironwind sponsored round of the speed painting competitions at Gencon a couple of years back.
