This past week I painted the Behir figure from the Bones 3 Stoneskull Expansion, as I continue to work my way through the remaining figures I haven’t painted yet from that set while waiting for the arrival of Bones 4. At this point, all I have left are the Kobolds and the big Iron Golem.
I prepped the figure in the usual way, soaking the pieces in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. Next, I assembled the figure using Gorilla Superglue gel. I then glued the figure to a 3" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue. In my rush to begin, I forgot to pre-prime the washer; so after I glued the figure on, I painted the washer with a brush on clear primer. The washer didn’t fit in my painting grip, so I hand held the washer for painting.
I began by painting the head and main body with Crafter’s Acrylic “Tropical Blue”, and then painted the top back portion and the body crest with Americana “Forest Green”. After that, I painted the belly scales with Folk Art “Celadon Green”.
At this point, I repainted the main body scales with Folk Art Color Shift “Blue Flash”. I let the figure dry for a while, and then I gave the entire thing a wash with Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash. When the wash was dry, I drybrushed the main body scales with the base “Blue Flash” mixed with a little Folk Art Pearl “Aqua Moire”. I then hit a few individual scales with just the “Aqua Moire”.
