Wild Dog: Bones II Figure

  This week I finished up the Dog/Wolf figure from the Bones II Original Figures set.   I chose to paint it up like a Wild Dog and base it for Frostgrave.
   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 white-primed 1.25" fender washers 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 bagn by painting his legs and underside with Americana "Terra Cotta".   I then painted his upper body with Americana "Neutral Grey".
      When these first colors of paint were dry, I gave the figure a wash with GW "Agrax Earthshade" wash using a wet brush.  When the wash was dry, I drybrushed the figure with Folk Art "Barn Wood"
     I then painted his muzzle, open mouth, and eyes Black.   Next, I added tiny White pinpoint highlights to his eyes, and painted his teeth with Americana "Buttermilk".  Then I added some highlights to his nose with the "Neutral Grey".
    Lastly, I painted the base White.  When everything had overnight to dry, I gave the figure a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish".  Then, the next morning I flocked the base with Woodland Scenics "Snow" flock, and added some fiber grasses.  Later that afternoon I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
     I'm pleased with how this puppy turned out.  I think he has a nice feral look about him.

    1. Thank you! Though I think I have to share some of the credit with the sculptor. :)
