Undead Outlaw: Bones 2 Figure

Chris Palmer

    This past week I painted the Undead Outlaw figure from the Bones 2, Savage Worlds set.
       I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying it.    I then glued the figure to a black-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figure to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer’s glue.

     I began by giving the figure a wash with heavily thinned Reaper “Grey Liner” using a wet brush. When the wash was dry, I painted the shirt with Ceramcoat “Opaque Red”, and the pants with Reaper MSP “Turkey Brown”.  I then painted the skull and exposed bones with Americana “Antique White”.

     Next, I painted the duster coat with Americana “Khaki Tan”, and then the boots with Americana “Charcoal Grey”.   After that, I painted his gloves with Accent “Mustard Seed”, and the handle of the gun with Crafter’s Acrylic “Cinnamon Brown”.

     I then painted the belt and holster with Americana “Terra Cotta”, and then let the figure dry for a while.  Afterwards, I gave the entire figure a wash with Citadel “Agrax Earthshade” wash, using a wet brush.  When the wash was dry, I painted the metal parts of the gun with Ceramcoat “Walnut”, and his hat, shirt collar, and hair with Black.

     Next, I highlighted the head and other areas of exposed bones with White.  I then highlighted his red shirt with Crafter’s Acrylic “Orange Spice”, and his pants with Americana “Sable Brown”.  I highlighted his boots with Americana “Mississippi Mud”, and his hat with “Citadel "The Fang”.  After that, I gave the metal parts of his gun a wash with thinned Accent “Golden Oxide” paint; and while that wash was drying I highlighted his duster coat with Americana “Bleached Sand” and his gloves with Folk Art “Butter Pecan”.  
     I then painted his buttons with Ceramcoat “Bronze”, and then did his belt buckle with Folk Art Metallics “Gunmetal Grey”. I then did a light drybrushing on the metal parts of the gun with the “Gunmetal Grey”.
     When I was done painting the figure, I used some white glue to glue a little sand to the base.  When this was dry, I painted the sand, and the figure’s integral base, with the “Charcoal Grey”, and when the paint was dry, I drybrushed the base and sand with some Americana “Territorial Beige”,  then some of the “Antique White”, and lastly the “Bleached Sand”.
    I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave him a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish.  Another overnight dry, and I sprayed him with Testor’s Dullcote".

     I’m really happy with how he turned out.  I’m not exactly sure what I will use him for, but it’s a fun and cool figure to have in the collection.  And, it’s another Bones 2 figure completed as I anxiously wait for my Bones 3 shipping notice.

    1. Way to think outside the box! Makes me want to do a whole Wild West themed warband now! In fact, I am picturing how cool it would be to do a whole western themed Frostgrave style game in some lost mythical Indian city…something like El Dorado…

  1. Well executed Chris. Always love your work, down to the bases – I really like the way your base work covered the entire base, plus the drybrushing. Very cool, and I agree you should get a warband of these guys!
