Behir - slithering and wending through a dark forest.
« on: July 22, 2020, 09:58:02 PM »
I just finished my Reaper Bones Behir.

Took a while, but I learned quite a bit.

With each miniature I complete I try to push contrast further. I think it worked here. I think vibrancy of colours could be better, however.
 
I also tried out UV resin the first time and really like it for small water features.

C&C very welcome. I will work it all into the next miniature.

Amazing! That's one of the best paintjobs I've seen on a Bones miniature. Great colours, and what a base!

Great painting but the basing and the use of the tree makes it outstanding. I really like the detail of the bird in the branches making ready to get outta there!

Amazing! That's one of the best paintjobs I've seen on a Bones miniature. Great colours, and what a base!

Thank you very much! I tried to do my best and push myself. I admit, the material made it very difficult to remove mold lines, but it overall it is a decent sculpt and I can recommend it. It would be better in the Bones Black material, however.

Great painting but the basing and the use of the tree makes it outstanding. I really like the detail of the bird in the branches making ready to get outta there!

Thanks, much appreciated. I think I spent at least as much time on the base then I did on the miniature. The beech tree was tricky. I really feel the miniature benefits from the verticality, as it is quite a wide, yet not very tall sculpt. Glad you spotted the raven! Didn't take long to paint it, but nice that people spot it nevertheless.

Here is a close-up:

A beautifully painted miniature and base! I am a fan of Bones stuff as there are lots of interesting sculpts available at a very reasonable price. It does take a lot of skill to make them look as good as this though! And thanks for the close up of the raven, it looks superb.

Really masterful. This is one of those minis where lengthy observation is rewarding - the longer you look at it the more details there are to appreciate. I missed the raven first time around. The highlighting on the scales, the translucence of the eyes and the detail on the tree are what really caught me. Incredible stuff. I'd love to see this fit into a wider army. Oh, and the staged photo is awesome too.

Fantastic! What an excellent paint job,great choice of colour.The base is superb and the raven is alovley touch. Is the tree completely scratch buillt? I am curiuos about how you did the foliage? I am always trying and failing to produce realistuc trees
I have a bad case of prescient nostalgia. The future's not what it used to be.
