Finished off my congress of bugbears (murder of bugbears?). Like the last set, had to cut them out of their broccoli then glue them to these wooden 1" squares I have diagonally so they'd sort of almost fit in 1". Skin/fur is a base of russet brown and highlighted with mixing that with blonde shadow. Hair/fur is russet brown mixed with auburn shadow. Anyways, they were all fun and expressive. Thanks for reading!
These are the minis I painted for Fealron for Secret Sophie. He said he was wanting some monsters that would live in a cavern or ice cavern. So, I imagined Ankheg (77230) as the mother and the channel grub (77226) as the larva. I painted the channel grub in blues and purples with yucky pink suckers. I used a little water effect on the slime trail it was sitting on. (Like a giant yucky slug!) I just painted the base for gaming like it was shiny ice. I used a gloss varnish because I wanted the grub to look slimy and icky! I wanted to use the same color scheme for the mother but I wanted her to look like she had a hard shell. I wanted it to look slightly iridescent like a big bug. I used shades of purple and blue and mixed in some bronze metallic. It doesn't show well in the pictures. I painted her base to match the grub's. The last guy is Kegg, Bugbear Hunter (77233). I wanted him to be usable in or out of a cavern. I gave him a badger fur pattern. I wanted him to appear to live in a colder climate so his loincloth is made from the pelt of a snow leopard. I tried my hand at "rusting" his shield and axe. I ended up really liking him and if I didn't have so many minis in queue, I would have to make a tribe of bugbears! I love the bugbears anyway! I hope these 3 cause a lot of trouble for some adventurers!
In the month of September I was able to make headway on painting up the 7 bugbears I'd like to paint. These are a little above tabletop quality as I'm working to refine my glazing technique while still being able to crank out quality work in a more brief timeframe. I wanted each of my bugbears to appear to be of the same species while retaining their own unique skin tone. These three I finished in September. To me, Mogg has a rather "refined" or noble quality to him. I opted to have his colors reflect that, and instead of doing the white-out eyes of the other bugbears, I wanted to give him pin-pricks of white in an effort to reflect higher than average intelligence for a bugbear. Kegg on the other hand appears to be an enraged hunter, and his eyes reflect that more. The last bugbear is a metal Reaper figure I picked up as part of a pack. His flail was missing so I took the opportunity to use one of the axes I have from a Reaper weapons pack to swap it out. I like the result. All of these were painted with my Reaper round #1 brush using MSP. All lighting, shadows and other effects are painted and not tricks of photography. The front and back of Kegg's shield exemplify what I'm working toward.
After taking care of the four bugbear grunts last month I had just enough energy to paint one of the bugbear heroes. They were blue so Kegg is green, which should help differentiate him on the tabletop. It's unfortunately not my best photography effort, but you get the idea.
