This past week I painted the Jakob Knochengard figure from the Bones 4 Dreadmere Epxansion 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 him to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmers glue.
I began by painting his face with Americana “Shading Flesh” and his outfit with Reaper MSP Bones “Cinnamon Red”. I then painted his coat, hat, and boots, with Ceramcoat Black; and then his pants, the mail under his coat’s cape, and his sword, with Americana “Zinc”.
I then painted his gauntlets, ascot and hat band with Americana “Dove Grey”, and his belts and pouch with Accent “Rea Umber”. Next, I painted his flasks(?) on the back of his belt with Americana “Terra Cotta”, and the cover of the book with Accent “Forest Green”. After that, I painted the pages of the book with Americana “Antique White”
As I began to figure out (or guess at) what everything was, I got the “Zinc” out again and painted his scabbard, the metal parts of his pistol, and what is either another gun barrel or another scabbard, half under his coat. I then painted the stock of his pistol with Americana “Light Cinnamon”, and his hair with Nicole’s “Brown”. After that, I painted the zombie head with Americana “Reindeer Moss”, and its hair with the “Black”. I then got out some Apple Barrel “Apple Maroon”, and mixed that with some of the “Black” to pat the gore around the head’s neck and mouth. I followed this by painting his badge, cross, and the amulets(?) hanging from his coat with Accent “Mustard Seed”.
Next, I highlighted his cloak and hat with first some of the “Zinc”, and then a little of some Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”. I then highlighted his gauntlets and hat band with Americana “Snow White”, and his belt and pouches with Americana “Sable Brown”. I painted the buckle on his belt and hats with the “Gunmetal Grey”, and highlighted all the silver metal with the “Metallic Silver”. I highlighted the gold metal with some Ceramcoat “Wedding Gold”. I then highlighted the book cover with some Crafter’s Acrylic “Holiday Green”, and added some gilded decoration to it with the “14K Gold”. After that, I did some highlights on his boots and the hair of the severed head with some Citadel “The Fang”, and I painted the eyes on the severed head with Americana Moon yellow". I highlighted the head with the base “Reindeer Moss”. Lastly, I painted the entire base with “Americana "Mississippi Mud”.
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish. Then, when the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to flock the base. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor’s “Dullcote”.
This is a great sculpt and really full of character. It was a fun one to paint, and I’’m happy with how it came out.
