I have not been painting anything the last half year or so, as my left elbow and lower arm have not been working properly, ligament problems leaving me unable to hold anything small still for any length of time, or at all. But it is getting better, and I have been getting a lot of […]Read More The arm is getting better
The next of the pre-kickstarter Bones to be completed is the Gnoll: You don’t want this kilted maniac mocking you with his laughter whilst raiding your livestock. He does seem to be looking to give someone a Glasgow Kiss! Black base coat, fur and skin is desert yellow and khaki with soft tone ink shading […]Read More Gnoll MacDonald raids your farm, E-I-E-I-O!
This one was really quick to paint, done in a couple of hours all together last night. Look at the back -someone has spilled water on this one. Note to self: do not feed it after midnight! Black undercoat, I did the skin a dark blue and drybrushed with dark purple several shades up to […]Read More The fifth Bone, The Troll of the Deep
The fourth Bone to be completed is the Unicorn. This one was mostly uninspired and somewhat of a struggle, and has been dabbled with on and off over the past few weeks. I had a lot of halfbaked not quite thought out ideas, but they conflicted and I had to start over a couple of […]Read More The fourth Bone, the Horn-Horse
Mortar, the Gargoyle When I got this figure, both wings were pointing directly backwards. So I have boiled and repositioned the wings, and also moved the stance forwards, as it leaned way back. After a few days, both the wings and the stance had moved rather a lot back to their original position, so I […]Read More The third of the pre-kickstarter Bones finished!
The Ghost, on a 40×40 base with a metal tombstone (don’t know the make, it was found among a lot of old unpainted scenery stuff I have in a box under the cellar stairs.) This will also do nicely for a Spirit Host in Warhammer. The bendyness of the Bones material was a […]Read More The second of the pre-kickstarter Bones finished
So. ages since last post, my camera went on the fritz again, and I have been without until now. Anyhow, still waiting for the Kickstarter “Boneami” to come flooding with 200+ figures, seems it will be until late summer before it will get sent. Here is the first of the Bones finished: A relatively quick […]Read More The first of the pre-kickstarter Bones finished
slow going with the Shai-Hulud. Not much time for minis these last couple of weeks. and struggling with the base for the Shai-Hulud. And then – inspiration. A dune. so a rough dune done in green stuff. A CD was used as the base of the base, as I did not have anything better handy. […]Read More Base for the sandworm
Just a short update. 1. The Bones material is touted as being ready to paint, and on the forums at reapermini.com people are stating that they sometimes need to be washed first for the paint to stick. 2. Army painter paints do not stick to the worm, even after washing. So I will need to […]Read More Shai Hulud! Reaper Bones “Great Worm” WIP part 2
I recently recieved my first small order of a few Bones. I wanted to see for myself what this material was like. And it is not as if they were very costly. So I looked at the so-called “Great Worm” and had several thoughts about what to do with it. I expect I will get […]Read More Shai Hulud! Reaper Bones “Great Worm” WIP part 1
