Well at least the landshark.  If you aren’t familiar with the phrase watch this ridiculous piece of vintage television: Fonzie Jumps the Shark.  Not really the case here, just another one of my terrible puns. I did manage to paint up the Reaper Bones Bulette, a DnD creature that tunneled underground and popped up to attack unwitting adventurers.  it was called the landshark on account of the shark-like fin and difficult to pronounce monster manual name. I notice in the rear picture the paint rubbed off a bit.  I really should start sealing these Bones figs.  The colour scheme I chose is based on the old description of a blue and red creature.  I went for a blue faded to grey for the upper armour plates and a dark reddish-brown under-belly.  The yellow-brown of the scales is similar to the basilisk I did previously but a bit more faded. For the action shot we once again see Hayden facing down a fearsome beast…although this one may be a bit tougher for her…

Short post today, but I am off for a weekend get-away to celebrate the anniversary with my wife.  I hope this little splash of colour inspires you to try painting your big creatures.  A bit of paint and a solid plan and they come together a bit faster than the little guys.
