Outstanding. Why is he purple?

Why not? Actually, my camera continues to bother me. For some reason the color is off and the white is really blowing out the contrast, there was much more of the leather butt cape visible in the WIP shots. He is kind of a light grey into purple but these pics don't really capture it correctly.

WOW! Fantastic palette! I love your take on him! Highlighting is stellar, NMM looks great, fur is convincing... Very very nice, CW.

Oooh! could he be a half-storm giant?? that would fit nicely! Don't get me wrong, he looks amazing, but I was perplexed as to the origin of his purpleness.

 

Your NMM is pretty sick btw.

Lies! This can't possibly be a CashWiley piece. I SEE A BASE RIGHT THERE!! ::o:

 

:poke:

 

In all seriousness, though, he looks simply fantastic! Such smooth, rich colors with superb blending, I love just looking at your pieces! :wub:

 

The base looks amazing, and looks very well done. It suits him nicely!

 

@Girot - He's standing outside in the dead of winter wearing only a loincloth, a butt cape, and a few scattered bits of armor. I'm honestly not surprised he's purple. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Fair enough. That means he's probably (un)dead if he's not a half-giant. Ironically I gave this mini to a friend to use as his half-giant.

I really love seeing some innovation in simpler minis. Lots of different trolls or werewolves is pretty easy, but there wouldn't seem to be a LOT of different ways to do one like this. I think I might try for the mottled skin of the Goliath race for mine.

So, part stone giant?

 

Awesome job, Cash!

      I have been away from painting and these boards for a while.
       
      I recently got back into painting and started with some of the bones 3 ogres. I made a rookie mistake with bad lighting and decided they had to go in the Simple Green bath.
       
      The ones that I based coated with brown cleaned fairly well.The armored ogres had Vallejo Coal Black and the stuff will not come off after 36 hours.That is not even a primer, just black model paint.
       
      So has anyone had this problem? Do I need to step up the cleaning solution to acetone free nail polish remover? Brake fluid? Has anyone tried nail polish remover or brake fluid on the Bones? how does the plastic react?

      I didn't have time to take better photos of this, too much going on recently to break out the DSLR, so I just used my phone camera. Not entirely enthused about the pics, but the mini itself was a BLAST to paint - probably my favorite non-dragon/large monster I've painted up so far! Once I got the color scheme thought through, I actually painted it up rather quickly. Tried a few new techniques on the stones on the base to make them seem a little more polished, which in person really stands out well :) Critiques?

      Painted this guy last weekend.  Highlighting is still a problem for me, but I still like the way he turned out.  I plan on touching up a lot of the paint next weekend, and eventually going over the parchment again to update the writing, but for now it will do.  Any tips on doing small runes or letters would be appreciated.  Thanks as always!

      Hajad is another sacrife to the toy box level painting (ie. ignore moldlines and any advanced techniques) in my quest to find the "right" zombie skin tone. This time based with 50/50 MSP Vampiric skin and VMC Basic Skin Tone. Covered with a wash of Army Painters blacker colored Dark Tone Ink. This is getting closer to what I want and might be right on with a wash using a brown ink like Strong Tone. I am going to find another sacrificial mini to try a 50/50 mix of the vampiric skin with VMV Dark Fleshwith a brown wash. I think that will give me the grey undead color I want ith enough caucasian skin to look like a fresher conversion to the zombie lifestyle. 
       

       
      I like this model, so will need to look at getting him in metal at some time. For now this one will be used as a ghost pirate in a Hero Kids adventure with my four year old.
       
      Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.

      Orctober got an early start this year, mostly due to me pouring too much green paint when I was doing the base tones on my Bones III Monsters:

      First, the actual Orcs!


       

       

       

       

       
      I liked the thematic continuation of the Orcs from Bones 1. 


      Painted with them, and only cousins to the theme of Orctober, come the Hobgoblins!
       

       

       

       

       


      There were a few frustrating details on these sculpts, and some odd undercuts, but their paint scheme stayed relatively simple.  I don't use Hobgoblins often; I think the only time they've shown up in anything I've run has been premade adventures where they show up as random henchmen.
