This is a simple tutorial for painting good table top standard skeletons. I have used Reaper Bones skeletons that I received from the Bones Kickstarter. I re-based the Skeletons on bases from Tiny Worlds.
Here I applied a dark brown coat to the skelton and once dried applied a dry brush of Vallejo Bonewhite
Any metal items are given a solid coat of pure black which will form the base for our rusted metal
A brown is stippled onto the metal areas that were painted brown in Stage 2. I used a Citadel dry brush and stippled the paint on chaotically. At this stage I also applied a very light dry brush of white to the very top highlights of the skeletons bones.
Several Edges are painted in a metallic paint including a few slashes to the shield.
Stages - Final
I use browns of various tones for the wood and leather etc. The Eyes are painted bright green to show they are magical animated! Then a completed shot of the Skeletons.
