Finished the last mini in the Bones 3 Ogre Command set. Here is the Ogre Chieftain.
He doesn't have a squire to polish his armor and the goblins use spit and their loincloths so....his armor isn't in the best of shape.
The shield on the back probably needs some battle damage but I hated to mess it up after I spent so much time getting it to look nice! Maybe he "found" it.
So here are pictures of the Ogre Chieftain and a group shot at the end. (I need a large photo background!)
I added a tutorial on how to do the rust effect.
Here is the Vampire Queen herself.
She has a Magic Sword guarded by her Crow familiar.
Her faithful undead servant lights the way.
I tried a bit of OSL on the servant, my first try.
I don't think it worked out that well, but you gotta try right?
The familiar and sword are from Reaper, pack X.
The Vampire and Servant are from the Freebooter range, sculpted by Werner Klocke.
Sorry about the quality of some pics, still struggling with the camera.
Sorry, I had to get punny with the title.
This is DSM's Musk Ox Warrior. I will admit, I got a bit tired of him towards the end. The thickness of the fur is such that even 95% done I was finding nooks and crannies that had no paint applied to them.
Michael Proctor did DSM's gallery version. For one, I wanted the figure to still look like a musk ox, so we are pretty similar in that respect. And the colors we chose are similar although not the same. I deliberately did some things different as to not copy Mr. Proctor's excellent beast. Nonetheless, his freehand on the purse and the loincloth served as an inspiration for mine.
When I did the rainbow fairy I was asked if I was going to line the intersection of colors on her skirt. I didn't, but for three reasons: I liked how it was without lining, I'd already planned it without lining, and I was worried about fudging up the good work if I tried. For the musk ox's freehand parts though, I tried, but I cheated at it a bit. I painted the outline color first, then painted the main color inside the "liner".
Also: @Doug Sundseth, I am bringing my camera next paint-meet-up to pick your brain on getting my settings right. My depth of field is suffering on photography.
As always, C&C, rip it to shreds. Inform me of my failures. I also accept praise in the form of (literal or figurative) cookies.
