Shrieking Fungus 1, 2, & 3: Bones 4 Darkreach Figures

     This past week I also painted the three Shrieking Fungus figures from the Bones 4 Darkreach Expansion set.
      I prepped the figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added and then rinsing and drying.   I then glued each one to a black primed 1" fender washer, with Aleene's Tacky glue.  I then glued the figures to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue each.
      I began by painting the left one entirely with Crafter's Acrylic "Light Antique White". With the center one I did just the stem with Folk Art "Porcelain White"; and with the third one I also just did the stem, this time with Folk Art "Milkshake"
      Next, I painted the top of the center one with Americana "Fawn", and the top of the righthand one with Folk Art "Cloudy Day".  I then did the openings on the top of the lefthand one; and the "mouths" as well as the top spots on the righthand, one with Americana "Shading Flesh".   After that, I painted the "teeth" on the righthand one with Americana "Bleached Sand".
     I then gave the lefthand one a wash with very thinned Iron Wind Metals "Purple" ink, the center one was wash with Citadel "Reikland Fleshhade" wash, and the righthand one a wash with Citadel "Nuln Oil" wash.
      When the washes were dry, I drybrushed the first one with the base "Light Antique White", and then a little Americana "Snow White". I moved on to the second one, drybrushing that with the base "Porcelain White".  I then did the third one, carefully highlighting the stem with the "Milkshake", and the cap with the 'Cloudy Day".  I then went back and went over the lips and spots on the top again with the "Shading Flesh", and the teeth with some of the "Light Antique White".
     I painted the bases with a 50-50 mix of Americana "Neutral Grey" and Americana "Mississippi Mud".   When dry, I gave the bases a coat of some of the "Nuln Oil" wash.  
    I'm pleased with how these turned out.  They were a quick and fun little project to do.


  1. Three marvelous voices from the Deep Into The Dark Dank Forest

  2. Nice additions to your collection. I really want to start building a 'mushroom forest' terrain set some day.

    1. Thank you, Merijn!

      A mushroom forest would be cool. Would be a neat addition to Reaper's Bones 5 Kickstarter. :)

  3. Those are some great looking basic fantasy mushrooms, something that every dank cave or night goblin army needs.
