Some Mid-sized Enemy Bones (Eye Beast, Flesh Golem, Lizardman, Owlbear)

Recommended Posts

I think that'll do for a couple months, hopefully I didn't bombard everyone too hard with my stuff over the last week or so. I tried to space it out. Anyway, here's the remaining mini's from my last photo session...

 

The flesh golem was a super fun paint. Also, ugh for the mold lines. I must stink at seeing these on bones. Never notice one or two 'til I get them posted...

Eyebeast was a pretty straight forward job.

This lizardman I did not batch paint with his brethren, as it was my first lizardman I've painted and wanted to just focus on figuring out a palette.

And I'd like to say last but not least, but really I didn't do too much with the Owlbear, just a quick clean paint job. Didn't even really bother to stuff his cracks with green stuff.

Thanks everyone for looking (at everything this week)!

I really like the Eye Beast. Nicely done. That owlbear is such a goofy model. I can't really expect a serious "owlbear", but I keep trying to figure out how to paint mine that won't look like a muppet.

Haha, that'll do. Yeah, I struggled with it, but after pinning the thing to get it's hind leg straight I just thought it would be easy to knock the sucker out quickly. It's not my favorite model, but I did it really quick, tried to keep it real clean, and got it out of the way. 

You can really knock it out quickly, 95% of the model is one texture, so if you aren't doing anything too complicated with the feather coat, it's a pretty fast paint.

Good job on all of them. Don't worry to much about the mold lines; looking at something blown up 2 or 3 times it's actual size in a photo tends to bring out all sorts of things that aren't generally too noticeable in person.

What colors did you use for the flesh golem's skin tones?

Haha, all of them.

 

There are various shades of purples, greys, and flesh tones, mixes of those, and black and brown inks. I really layered a lot in there to try to get a varied look. My base purple I use is imperial purple, and my normal grey is rainy grey. Pretty sure I started the whole thing with leather brown though, then wash the purple on top of that, then moved into grey and flesh mixes, adding purple, black, and brown back in wherever I felt like it was getting too uniform.

Owlbears, let's face it, are silly. That's why they're fun.

 

I didn't mention before, but the teeth on that flesh golem are outstanding, they really sell the whole job IMO.

      Sorry for being away from the Forum for so long.
       
      So ... how does one pronounce "peryton"? 
      I've usually said it like "keratin" (stress on the first syllable), but I suppose it could rhyme with "enlighten" (stress on the second syllable) instead.
      I realized only weeks ago that I had been mispronouncing "wyvern" all my life, and the first syllable is long like "five", not short like "shiv".
       
      Anyway...
      I taught a class called "Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class at ReaperCon 2018.
      I used the Bones peryton as a demonstration, because of the big feathered wings.
      The first-edition Monster Manual gives the coloration of a peryton as blue-black head, black horns, green wings, and blue chest (male) or drab chest (female).
      I showed my students pictures of real hawks and falcons, most of which have dark tips on their wing feathers, and sometimes a series of dark stripes. 
      Then I painted one of the peryton's wings to have stripes like that (black on green).
       
      Now I've decided to paint the whole figure, to at least a good tabletop standard.
      I attached it to a 50mm round base, sculpted some extra rocks, and sculpted the skeleton of a past victim (a Reaper pewter skull, plus bones made from putty).
      Perytons bite the hearts out of their prey, so I made the skeleton's ribcage open/broken in front.
       
      Here's how my version looked after I spent 2 hours slapping on Black Brush-on Primer and White Brush-on Primer, to establish the overall values.
      The primer didn't fully cover the striped green wing from my ReaperCon class.
       

       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      Hello, this is my first post on the reaper forums.
      I wanted to share my most recently painted miniature, the Ogre Guard sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
      The base is made out of a 74036: 2" Round Base, some apoxie sculpt for the rocks, green flocking and some army painter grass tufts.
       
      I picked this figure because while he is intimidating, he hasn't started attacking yet.
      This monster fits the look of both wild beast or gentle giant.

      I bought 4 faceless horrors painted OD green. After soaking them in SG for three days I still couldn’t get the paint off. So I decided to leave one green and repaint the other 3. One is done in purple/pink/white, one purple/brown/pale flesh, the other is purple/pinks/flesh. All the teeth are polished bone and linen white. Eyes are either clear red, fire orange, or sun yellow. Every one got clear coat to look slimy. Pic heavy.

      This troll has been sitting for a year half painted, finally finished him. Any suggestions welcome.

      I have not shown anything for a long time. And I have not painted anything for a couple of months. Finally I had a couple of hours of free time and painted that Bones Vampire. As usually, all I'm aiming for is tabletop "quality".
      For a first mini after a month-long break, done in a couple of hours I'm quite satisfied. I think I'm going to do a bit more with the inner side of the cape (more highlights). Any constructive criticism welcome.
