In the third Bones kickstarter, one of the dragons was made available in clear Bones material, in addition to the normal offwhite the Bones usually come in. Naturally, I opted for the clear one. Reiterating how to paint translucent minis: Clearly, it is nessecary to use paints that in themselves are translucent, such as inks […]Read More Bones 3: Kyphrixis the clear dragon

Reaper released a few minis in Bones before taking them to kickstarter the first time. Here is one of them: And what a beauty it is! That head would take pride of place in the monster hunter’s wall of stuffed trophies! I really don’t know why I have not painted one this earlier. […]Read More The Great and Purple Worm!
Next up is the Bones Hell Cat. Your typical molten lavacreature with broken crust exterior. In Bones the detail is a bit shallow for my taste, which makes it more difficult for me (being such a sloppy drybrusher) to get a “clean” look to the crusty bits, especially when the topmost black coat was a […]Read More The Hell Cat
First, some appropriate music to paint to: The area where I live is the habitat of at least two murders of Crows and even more of their smaller cousins the Magpies. Lovely birds, all black and white and full of shit. Their droppings are plastered all over the place. And the cawing. The incessant […]Read More Minivember: Sneaking in The Thieving Magpie
Christmas is not too far off, and Critters are fun and here is Beary the Bear with Wolverinie the Wolverine (probably searching for Porcupiney the Porcupine, who is to carry the new Savior of Critterkind to be born on Christmas Eve. Unless the Mountain Lion eats them all. You know the story. Your common […]Read More Minivember: The Bear and The Wolverine *snikt*
So it’s Minivember. The month where one tries to paint one different model each day. As is typical, I am rather late to the party, having been busy with work the whole of the first week. So I will try to do a different model each day (or rather, the equivalent: 30 different minis this […]Read More Minivember starts with a cutesy baby Dragon (taller than a man)
In Shadows of Brimstone the Caverns of Cynder expansion, there are rules for Cynder-versions of two of the monster types in the Swamps of Death base game. With the first wave of the KS rewards came an extra set of the base game minis, so I had some I could paint up as the varients. […]Read More Souls of the Damned
Picked up a random mini to do today. Whatever a “Chthon” is… It looks like a cross between a rattlesnake and a facehugger, so I did a rattlesnake pattern on its back and facehugger fleshy colour, Yeah, forgot to take a pic of the back. Argh, 77228: Chthon Reaper Bones KS2 Bonesium PVC 30mm […]Read More Random mini: Chthon
I envision this demon dog as being a beast of smoke and fire, much like the Balrog. However. I don’t see it as burning the ground it walks on. Most of the pictures I took of this were mysteriously out of focus. It obviously did not want to be taken a picture of. 77038: Hell […]Read More Uhm, nice….Doggy?
Oh yes. It just had to be done: If you have seen The Strain, you know what inspired this. 62110: Numenera Ithsyn Reaper Bones KS2 Bonesium PVC 40mm base Finished so far this month: 5 Finished so far this year: 238Read More Chocobo meets the Strain!
Frostgrave has some interesting charts of random encounter monsters. Which means having said monsters ready to play is a good thing. And what is a game set in the lands of ice and snow without Ice Trolls? Even though I have not bothered to specially base my frostgravers with snow effects, and there really is nothing […]Read More Reaper Bones 77344 Ice Troll
