  1. Was doing some prepwork for a Pathfinder campaign and realized, the PCs will be fighting an Ogre Sorceress fairly early on. Kind of hit me that "Hey I just Got one of those" so while I am still working through Bones 2, I went and dug into Bones 3 for this one. and damn she has turned out really nice. Very proud of this one and can't wait till she beats down my players.
  2. Presenting an Ogre Gangster, part of the Halfling Mafia faction (the Ogres do the heavy lifting) from the game Wolsung by Micro Arts Studio. Really pleased with the job I did on him (He's got eyes! Always feel extra happy when I can do their eyes), just wish my stupid Vallejo varnish hadn't made him so shiny in the wrong places. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  3. Finished with my latest show and will have at least two months before I'm in another. Figured out that having a nice hobby room all to myself didn't work so well as my wife would find things for me to do so that I didn't go in there and leave her feeling alone. Moved my big painting desk back out into the living room so progress should be fine and if she leaves, she's not upset about it. I had last stopped working on Yagun Oog well over a month ago, so I didn't want to try to jump back in on him right away. Last week saw the Hangout Mini of the Month was another ogre, Kagunk, so I ordered him and he arrived yesterday in the mailbox. After the show finished, I broke him open and began removing mold lines and smoothing things out. For a while it seemed this was going to take several days, but soon I was back in the rhythm and by the time I write this he is ready for a washing. As you can see, he is slightly large. In fact, I had to go scrounging in the cabinets to find something I could put him on to paint him. The jeweler's vice would sort of work, but without a tab that is problematic. Nope, he is going to get a glass jar of high quality olives and a lot of white-tack. He will see brown liner or primer tomorrow! Also going to have to figure out a base for him as the large 50 cm rounds I had donated by Jasper the 2nd are not quite big enough. He may get a slice of a cedar limb, we'll see...
  4. This is my first WIP, so please bear with me on this. I tried to do the base coat in the style of the brown liner trick only using sepia liner instead as I don't have brown liner. However, I wasn't thinking and ended up using sepia wash...several layers of it. After a V8 moment, I then realized that the instructions were for liner not wash. A coat of sepia liner is shown below.
  5. Presenting another Ogre Gangster from the game Wolsung by Micro Art Studio. Casting wasn't too good on this one, he's got pits, cracks and rough patches all over him, but I still think I did a decent job. He's also my final Ogre Gangster (I've still got a few Halfling Gangsters to paint though), so here's a group-shot:- As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly appreciated.
  6. Apparently my light box set up creates some specular reflections because these boys are not so shiny in normal lights. Anyhow, I really like these old school, Bob Olley ogres. I hope you do too.
  7. Welcome the living classics! My new project - Mordheim mercenary ogre. Those miniatures from GW golden age are kind of awkward - they are have some real character in it, but the sculpting is really not the top. IMO it still best modern GW 3D-printed dummies, but, well, there are lot of flaws and mistakes, common for newbie sculptors (i walked this path too, so i know how it looks). Well, that where Tamiya putty comes forward and fixes this. As you can see, i used some Tamiya putty on a grounded and partially painted model. Yes, this is as cool as it is! I think some minor work on his face will be a good idea. You can track this project flow on my Patreon page. I will be grateful for your support.
  8. This is Miss Ogre 2017. Steve Harvey realized he made a mistake and that she actually came in second but when he tried to rectify the mistake, she ate him. I had such a good time painting her. I kept having Shrek flashbacks. First, "Get outta me swamp!" The Scottish accent made me want to attempt painting plaid. Then realizing that she is wearing two skirts because.....Ogres have layers! I considered giving her a tramp stamp, a beauty mark (her tusks are in the way), and platinum blonde hair. Maybe I will have to get another and do that on the next one. The little guy has pretty soft features and I couldn't see any mouth or anything on him so I gave him a suggestion of a mouth. I may go back and tweak it a little more. Not 100% sure what the things are hanging from the front of her belt. I almost painted them to be lizard heads! Also, not sure about her dagger looking rusty realistically but it's not bad. Plus, she is appearing in this weekend's game! I can't wait! Anyway, here she is. I present Miss Ogre 2017!
  9. The first of my ogres. He looks like he probably smells pretty bad.
  10. Sneaking into the paint queue was a set of Merrow. As far as I know, these were the first Merrow miniatures actually made. Of course, now 5E Merrow look like evil giant Mermen in the fashion of Warcraft Naga and are getting minis in the next pre-paint set... I wound up with two, as one is a replacement. The fellow with the club was converted, and had arrived with some casting issues on his face and arms. The OG: The remix:
  11. I was thinking of giving her a cheap looking blonde wig and some poorly applied red lipstick, but decided to give her a little more dignity.
  12. Not much progress so far. Washed, and hot glued to cork. I didn't check for mold lines before I started slopping brown liner on him, so I finished, then removed mold lines, then touched up the paint. His shield wasn't well attached, so I just pulled it off. That'll make him easier to paint anyway.
  13. I've started painting my large army of bones ogres. Since my orcs are rust coloured I decided to try making ogres green, I'm pretty happy with the result.
  14. Now that's a tank. I wonder if he made his own armor?
  15. Here are my next two guys I'm trying to crank out to catch back up on the RP challenge. Cave Troll Champion: The base coat for the skin is Reaper Brilliant Green, working up to Viper Green for the highlights and down to Peacock Green for the shadows. I don't really have the layering on the skin quite the way I want it though. I'm going to take a break and do the eyes and mouth before I worry about finalizing that. The club is a base coat of Vallejo Model Color Flat Earth washed with Vallejo Model Color Smoke. The mouth is just a sloppy base coat of Reaper Imperial Purple. The little spots on the club and foot where the paint got nicked by well-meaning in-laws trying to clear the table for dinner have since been touched up. Ogre Chieftain: I see a lot of white/tan/gray ogres, so I wanted to try something a little different and go with a darker skin tone. This is just the base coat, it's Vallejo Model Color Chocolate Brown. C&C welcome, thanks in advance!
  16. Back in 2013, Oathsworn had a kickstarter for a range of oldhammery heroes, with dwarves, halflings, and a few monsters like the efreet and shambling mound that I have painted earlier. I am very slowly getting round to them, one at a time: This is Tardog Wolfskinner, Ogre vagabond from that set. Full of that oldhammer character and charm. Now if only I could remenber where I put the rest of those minis... Tardog Wolfskinner, Ogre vagabond from the Oathsworn Heroes KS (2013) Oathsworn Miniatures sculpted by Michael Lovejoy white metal 40mm base
  17. Got some paint on one of my Bones 3 minis. This is one of the ogre trio. Just phone pics, so I apologize if they look gods-awful. He looks wet because he has a layer of gloss sealer on him. I leant out my matte sealer and I don't have it back yet. When I do, he'll get a coat of that to knock the sheen down. He's destined for the tabletop (as are all my minis really).
  18. I like the idea of yellow and orange skinned ogres and I've seen a few before. This is my first foray into yellow skinned ogre territory and I liked highlighting Witt a mix of orange and shading with a bit of green. This was a heavy one though, so I'll be looking forward to the bones ones coming soon (tm). I stamped some green stuff for the base and sculpted a couple extra bits while I was at it. It's supposed to be a bit of cloth and some rope. Also there is a pile of round objects that honestly looks like massive deer poo. Well, why not? Painted the cloth red, which maybe makes it stand out a little too much. I'd appreciate any feedback or advice on what to improve before I get started on the bones 3 ogres. thanks for looking!
  19. I picked this guy up in an auction. Had never heard of the game Crucuble or the line of miniatures, but it was a big lot for a great price so I went for it. I was pleasantly surprised how cool this turned out to be. Comments and critique welcome.
  20. I restarted this fellow. I originally started him not long after Bones came out but only to glue him to a base and have him leaning against a rock I found while on vacation. When I finish with him I plan to have him looking weary and beat. He is frequently a main bad guy during gaming sessions so it is time to put some paint on him. Here he is lined with Reaper Coal Black and his skin coated with Redstone Shadow. Enjoy and Stay Tuned.
  21. Qesnef, is an ogre mage who lost a bet with Keraptis and as a result must guard the fabled treasure of White Plume Mountain, the sword of Blackrazor, for 1001 years. In his true form Qesnef is a huge, horned, blue-skinned ogre but he normally uses his innate shape-changing magic to appear in the guise of a doughty Halfling when meeting unsuspecting adventurers. (excerpt from the back of the box, characters based on the White Plum Mountain dungeon Module) Painted for a friend. Cool model, I may end up painting one for myself one day.
  22. Dark Paints: D&D Ogre Mercenary Evil Ogres, this guy is BIG. I based him on a 40mm base initially (he's still standing on it!), but I found it to be waaaaay too small. I then put him on a 50mm base, and tried my Advanced Deployment arc marker tool, and I'm very happy with him. He's painted to Tabletop quality, and he'll be used as an Ogre Leader for Pathfinder, Song of Blades and Heroes monster, and possibly in Dragon Rampant as well. The shield was a take on the Thalos "water" shield and I'm happy with how it turned out. I don't believe he'll be working for Thalos anytime soon. C&C always welcome.
  23. Ogre Mage Master Phthalo I picked up this guy a while ago. He's an actual lead miniature from the Reaper P-65 Heavy Metal line that was later discontinued. The Bones material is much cheaper and far easier cut and convert. Not long after I got him I based him on a cavalry length base to fit his stance and primed him with tan and did some basecoating using craft paints I had. I recently decided to pick him back up and put some effort into him. You can check out the WIP to see everything I did to get him here. Final Pics: Enjoy. I hope you enjoy him. Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (approved) Added to Thrym's Index of Reaper Miniatures & Thrym's General Show Off List
  24. It's the surfing samurai ogre mage ... er ... just my P-65 Heavy Metal Ogre Mage. Yeah, the background was boring so I added a border. As you can see here, he's just basecoated and attached to a piece of slate which has been covered with ballast. I basecoated this guy a long time ago and shelved him because ... well, I wasn't ready to completely get into finishing him. I decided last night to pull him from the shelf of shame and resume work on him. I hooked him up to my holder ... then had to counter his weight with rocks, sand AND water ... he's a heavy bugger. I used craft paints at the time to basecoat him. I am okay with the basecoating and enjoy the palette I started. So, colors ... The green hakama pants and robe are Celery. His skin is Phthalo Blue. The Pack Cover is Lavendar. The Fur Jacket is Antique Gold. And the orange-like highlights are Deep Sea Coral(?) ... I think. Been a while. The ground is Sunflower Yellow. The gist of the color scheme was desaturated tones to start with. We'll see where this leads.
  25. I went for my good old, Black, Red, Grey, Metal paint scheme that I used to paint all my green skins in.
