Every once in a while I get the hankering to do some Nolzur’s Marvellous Miniatures. I like the monsters and have bought a few, but I can’t stand the itty bitty truscale of the humans though -they are simply too small for my tastes, the shallow details disappearing beneath the oft-to thick primer.

We begin with some fitting music: The Bones 3 kickstarter shipment arrived at long last! Hoody Hoo! Which also means I have been in a frenzy of difficult mould line removal, scrubbing little white rubbery plastic bits in warm soapy water, dipping said bits in boiling hot water then cold to unbend bits here […]Read More Bones 3! The Air Elementals

In the end […]Read More Translucent Bones: Large Fire Elemental
Painted at the same time as the water weird: I used the same method for this piece as with the water weird. However, I didn’t make a mess of this one with the drybrushing. I think. I did some color shade variations all over this one, but I think maybe the gloss varnish fuffs […]Read More Translucent Bones: Large Water Elemental
Second to last of the blue translucents from the Bones 2 kickstarter: The Water Weird. A water weird is a water elemental that exists within / is bound to a specific body of water and that can give the heroes a nasty surprise when going for a wash or a drink. I made the […]Read More Translucent Bones: Water Weird
