My minis

Postby Anderas » Sunday March 22nd, 2015 4:47pm

Ok, if everybody has his thread here, i will start my own, too.

I will post VERY irregularly; but hopefully get some good feedback from you.
My very first Mini was a skeleton of GW; intended to train a bit the Bone technique.

Foundation was with black paint, then white out of the airbrush.

Everything was painted with Coat d'arms "Bone" color; washed with GW Devlan Mud, looked at, nearly thrown up (because i didn't remove the mold lines.... :oops: never use wash with Mold lines! :D ), again painted with "Bone", highlighted with "Khaki" of Vallejo and then put carefully some Sepia and Devlan Mud only where I wanted it to be.

Well, for the first Skeleton after years of Orks I think it is ok. It was to test the Color Scheme, too. There are basically three skeletons: The Yellowish "Bone" Skeleton; the White&Black "easy" skeleton and the white skeleton with some blue in the recesses to show that it is really really super white bone. After I tried the yellow color scheme, i think this is not perfect. But I don't like the others. No way out? Let's see.

Looking sharp thus far! And yeah, gotta nab those mould lines before the wash makes them stick out on ya!

Glad to see more project logs too :)

I bought the bases here

You have to switch to "weiß" then it's the correct one.

The only problem is the size - sufficient for the small monsters, for the big ones they are a bit small.

With a bit of search it should be possible to find the 25mm variant in the same shop (it is horrible bad sorted)

I'm 99% certain it's an old Warhammer plastic kit skeleton.

That's a very regular old GW/Citadel plastic multipart skeleton. If you swoon over this one you should see some other skeletons from other manufacturers.

Yes, i once bought a plastic Skeleton Box of GW some fifteen or twenty years ago to have some Bones for my Orks.
This is the only one that survived complete.

In fact i don't think it is very good. Look at the shoulders.
