Bones update 15

I managed to create painting space in the only air-conditioned room in the house. Naturally I tested it out by painting another quartet of Bones models:


These goblinoids were part of another experiment: can I paint straight onto Bones?

The answer is yes. I didn’t even wash these models, I simply pulled them out of the drawer they have been in since unboxing and started applying paint.

To be safe I used one of my brand new Master Series Paints as the base skin tone. However I used a mix of other brands too. The leather is a Vallejo game color paint with GW highlights. I have a mix of paints built up over the years, so here are the ones I used for these figures:


I call this experiment a success and will repeat this process in the future.

    Good to see Goblins with more inspired skintones than traditional green. I like the guys. I had good results with painting Bomes straight, too. However, sometimes some release agent does make the paint chip, so I wash them before I paint them. It is probably the oil on my hands, too. My next experiment will be priming them with AK Grey Primer as I did not like the beading of diluted paimt im some cases on the raw Bones.

    Good work on the ruin, too. You could apply a pigment wash on the stone to bring the detsils out a bit more and tone it down a bit/ make it looked more weathered.
