Painting binge!

Over the last few days I've been trying to get ready for some upcoming game projects as well as to chip away at the mountain of Bones miniatures I have to do. Here are some models I've painted since Friday, together with a few I finished a week or so ago.

Incidentally, Reaper mentions that Army Painter coloured primers work on their figures, but I have also discovered that so does Halfords car primer. The number of grey and brown models in this update may not be a coincidence.

Utility monsters! That guy on the right is just a test piece, which
is why his hideous mould lines are even more hideous than usual.

Utility monsters II! We have a druid now, so there's going to be a
lot more animal figures getting painted over the next months. 


Imp! I am displeased both with the paintjob -- and not just because
the wash dried glossy -- and with the photo. Hopefully the next
one will look a little better. 

They have a scurvy pirate crew now, so they need some scurvy pirates.
I have no idea where this figure is from -- got him in the sprue exchange.

Reaper Bones warlock. I actually quite like this model!


More scurvy pirates! Look how short that dude on the right's arms are. 

Modern adventurers. 
Words cannot express how much I hate the Bones integral bases -- everyone will get some extra flock and stuff to pretty their bases up; I just tend to wait until I have a bunch of models that need flocking and then do them all at once. 

However, check out Shortarms McBadlyproportioned up there; I just cut him right off his base and stuck his feet on a spare Wargames Factory base. Clearly the way forward. I'll be doing that in future when I can; the soft plastic makes it really easy.
