My samurai Tengu Warrior. I could not figure out what was sculpted on his shoulder armor. My wife and I looked under a magnifying glass and decided "Cartoon Troll With Big Nose" and " Exploding Chicken Head On Fire"
They are both different looking and neither is pictured in Reapers stock photos. Tough paint, because I could not find any painted examples online for reference.
The static grass I ordered really helped break up all those browns.
I was really surprised with this model. A friend picked it out and I painted it for him, I don't think I would have looked twice at this model otherwise.
I searched, used some google fu, but I could not find a single painted version of it to use as some kind of reference (which sort of worried me because sometimes I can't figure out what something is on a model.
I love the staff with the face carved at the top (or maybe it was real, cut off and mounted on top? looked like part of the wood to me, but somebody could easily painted it that way) I never even noticed just skimming through Reapers model pages.
I was unsure about the stance he is taking, but once it is painted, I thought it was really cool and looks like he is casting something wicked.
The color combinations: personally I feel like I took a lot of chances, a couple of different color wash experiments, along with the blue/purple highlights and the cosmic stars in his cloak. Never did any of that before.
I had a hard time with the base, but I tried to keep it in the fall theme as the other Tengu I painted only this one I made a little muddy and a little more leafy.
A friend requested this one, hope he likes it. I didn't realize the model had "rogue" in it's title until I went to post tonight. I get creative control which is the best part though.
I should have started painting on models like this one. A lot of fun, not overly complicated with details or crazy flowing garments. Just an elegant sculpt.
Hope you enjoy :)
I painted this kenku today. I would have liked playing with other colors for the beak and feathers, but my players will be meeting their first wereraven in Curse of Strahd next week so I went with boring black on black. I was picking between this model and the owl bear from reaper bones. The owl bear has that fierce lycan look, but it was more expensive so the kenku won out. This is actually my first non-bones miniature to paint which added to my decision process. I used a grey brush on primer for it because I've been having problems with the humidity and the spray primer I usually use. This is my first time flocking a base as well. It turned out ok, but I'm sure there is a much better way to go about it. I'm going to clean the flocking up a bit once it completely dries. I was considering using a brush on sealer on it. My tests on the flocking show that the sealer completely ruins the snow look and makes it just look like slush so I'll probably just leave it be.
