Monday Miniatures: Bat Swarm
One of the problems with the bones material, is that the bright white plastic makes it hard to tell what you are looking at sometimes. This piece especially lacks detail. The first time I picked it up I had to look at the Kickstarter to figure out what it was.
Despite its deeply problematic nature though, a couple painters achieved really fantastic results with it.
Resin Terrain – Worldsmith miniatures is releasing some well priced resin terrain pieces. I may have to pick up a couple.
I have spent the last week working, and so have spent zero time painting (or doing much pf anything really). By the time life calms down I will have worked almost 2 weeks straight. This makes the second bone I have not painted with the rest of you. It’s a shame, because this mini looked either really fun or really horrible to paint. The reviews I received were mixed.
Arjen mentioned his difficulties with the detail on these, but he did okay on that front. The best part of this paint job is the color variation from bat to bat. It really makes the whole piece look much better than in would have otherwise.
Magnus went with a darker color scheme, but the high contrast base helps with that quite a bit.
Tallghost also went with black bats in his paint job. The tombstone looks great too, with just enough highlighting.
Kylie must have needed a little extra time, but this much awesome is worth it!
Likewise, Antonia also submitted a mini that is worth the wait. Outstanding work this week everyone!
Oxidation Beast – I think this is one of the weakest minis in the entire bones collection. Let’s see what we can do to fix that. Please send pictures to Caffeineforge@gmail.com by 2100
