Here is the first of the translucent bones I have painted.
Played around a bit with yellow, green and turquoise inks on the main rags, it turned out quite well. It is rather more yellow at the top end than the photo shows.
Really careful drybrush with light bone white to pick out the details.
Skull and bone-bits painted with some Reaper paints from the KS undead paintset. Those bone colours are much less yellow than bone colours I am used to, and I actually like this. Good coverage straight on the bones material.
Also a bit of Army Painter soft tone ink was used for shading the bone.
Still need to do something about those teeth though. And maybe pinpoint blue lights in the eyesockets?
Quick and easy basing: I used a Mantic 20mm base. It is usually really easy to trim the Bones’ integral broccoli base with my clippers to fit the 15mm hole in the mantic base, and any gaps are usually covered up by the flock mixture.
