  1. Okay gang, Need to know if someone can help me out. I have had to settle for making paper mini's for my DnD campaign until I can get some money together and start buying more mini's from reaper. I have a scale I use for smaller figures, but I need one I can use for bigger ones. Does anyone know the measurement of 03137: Nor'Okk, Ettin minus the base. That way it will help me in scaling my minis for larger figures. Actually just need his height. Thanks
  2. Bones Nor'Okk, Ettin

    Among the many challenges there are in becoming a good mini painter, I've found getting flesh tones right to be one of the most difficult. I spent quite a bit of time trying to achieve a realistic look on the Ettin. I think I've made some progress - but lots of room for improvement. (I found the following video to be really helpful in understanding how to paint flesh tones: )
  3. 77103 Nor'Okk Ettin

    Do you think this guy (these guys?) killed one of Fulumbar's (77011) brothers? He's got that tankard shield... Those could be dwarf hands around his neck. I imagine that must smell pretty bad.
  4. 77103 - Nor'Okk, Ettin (pic heavy)

    I loved this doing this piece. It was my first time experimenting with this much flesh tone. Overall, I am pleased with how he came out. The original concept was going to be half undead, half alive for a game I was running. I decided, after a failed attempt at zombie looking skin, to go a different route, two different flesh tones. As a bones mini, there was one slight imperfection. On his belt, there was a series of skulls. It appears one of them got a bit muddled in the casting process. My sculpting ability is non-existant, so I painted it as a mass of something gross, maybe a fungus or something like that. At any rate, I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed painting it! And as always, CC is welcomed! Ettin: CAH
  5. Some Non-Reaper Work

    Here are some of my non-reaper work, from the Descent 2nd Edition board game by Fantasy Flight Magma Elemental Ettin (sorry for poor picture quality)
  6. 77103 Nor'Okk, Ettin

    This guy was a good time. I didn't go for anything special or challenging besides trying out a classic green skin, which I rarely use. I like how it turned out, my hobgoblins from Bones 3 might end up green.
  7. Nor'Okk, Ettin

    Hey all! Been a while since I took pictures, but I got a batch done yesterday, so I will be putting a few threads on here over the next couple days. Thought I'd try to start strong; I love this mini! There is a weird thing on the sculpt that I noted in the Bones/LE forum section about the rope on his back disappearing into his shoulder, but it seems to be built into the sculpt, so I kind of ignored it and painted around it like everyone else. Of course, now that I look at my pictures I didn't take any back shots anyway so there's no real reason for me to have just said that. Really tried to push my layering with the flesh on this, I think it shows in the face coloration and flushing around the lips and nose, etc. C+C always welcome. Bonus points if someone can identify what book's inside cover is being used as my backdrop...
  8. So I'm painting up Nor'okk, and things are going swell. Finishing up all my bigger basecoats first as I tend to. Then I get to the details and noticed this fella has a rope going into his arm. What's going on with this? I hadn't really noticed it in pictures before, so I looked some up. Seems it bothered other people as well, as most of them had taken pictures of the rope hiding behind something like his club: It almost makes sense from this angle, too: But here, in the full back view, the upper right shoulder clearly has a rope going into it: Pretty unusual, looks like Tre just forgot to finish this rope? Not sure my green stuff abilities are beyond making simple rocks to decorate bases and patching obvious holes, so I'm kinda stuck until I wrap my head around the disappearing rope. So, yeah. No real point to this thread I guess. Just something I noticed.
  9. 77103: Nor'Okk, Ettin

    I started this guy at the race track on vacation, and put up a couple of posts in my consolidated WIP. But since there is quite a bit still to go on him, I figured I'd start a new separate WIP for him (<Grampa Simpson> as was the style at the time <\ Grampa Simpson>). So here are pics of the initial base coat: And then after a heavy wash: That gets us caught up to the old WIP.
  10. Hello! This is my first ever post on the Reaper Forums! I got my kickstarter this summer and I've been LOVING how much my skills have improved from all the practice! I am new to basing and photographing mini's but that will improve over time. What I'd like most of all is to hear from you about what you think. Constructive criticism welcome too!
  11. 77103: Nor'Okk, Ettin [Bones]

    Freshly back from TotalCon, I can happily report that the Ettin I've been working on in my WIP thread is done, and delivered to its owner. He seemed quite happy with it, and I enjoyed the project. (For those who haven't read up on it, one of our local PFS Venture Lieutenants asked me to paint up 77103, Nor'Okk as a "stuffed" version of Vroth the Crusher from a certain PFS scenario as a gift for his teenaged son.) I mostly painted the model normally, but I tried to base him as if on display in a home or museum, and I added a few stitched up scars, where a grievous wound might have been repaired post-mortem. This is the third large Bones model I have worked on. I'd say the model paints up quite well. The only place where the detail really seemed to fall down was on the rear-most of the skulls hanging from his right hip. It's shape is soft enough that it stops looking fully skull-like. Does anybody have a good picture of the metal version to compare it to? As always, your comments are welcome.
