Often thought of as one of the simpler types of miniatures to paint, skeletons can have a lot more character and depth if you know some tips and tricks. YouTube's AGProductions channel has a good video on their DVD release from last year detailing the instruction included on their two hour and fifteen minute $10 video ($3 shipping in the USA). It includes eight ways to paint bone and some basing techniques. Take a look at their YouTube video and see if this DVD might be some help. The YouTube video includes a three minute preview from the DVD. Enjoy!
