First up, something I've been dreading -- Clear Bones. I have started and stopped these a couple times... my washes never seem to work out. So, I settled on a combination of washes and light dry brushes (on most). (About the only thing harder is trying to take pictures of them :) )

"Dragons don't Share" Last of my Bones 1-3.* Bones 5 shipping soon, so I feel like I'm in a good place :) Looking back at my first Bones thread, I almost can't believe the time that has passed...

*Not counting some contemporary/future models that I haven't painted, since I haven't typically played outside the D&D realms :)
 






So... I backed the Hand of Glory kickstarter a while back. A very cool concept - metal minis with magnetic wrists, and a slew of weapons, gear, etc. to attach to them. Painted the first two minis and a few weapons as a test run. The characters themselves are "heroic scale", 30-35mm -- so a little bigger than most of my Bones characters (recent Bones mini for comparison). Also, the detail level is not great. The variety of "hands" that can be attached are numerous. The over-all usage is a little clunky. Nice idea, especially if these were my only minis. But not a super addition to a vast collection. Debating on whether to paint to remaining 7 minis and hundreds of weps, etc.

This is a, well I call it Disco Lich now, from Wizkids I think, and it has a clear part for the magic effect. I used Tamiya clear yellow, orange, and red for the magic effect and it worked out fairly well. If you can find a translucent paint of some kind to use it might help with those clear effects.
