Fire Elementals, Reaper Bones

Recommended Posts

I speedpainted these but I was kind of happy with how the medium fire elemental came out so I thought I’d post them here as well.

Nicely done. Small critique, you should bring out the face of the large elemental a little. At the moment it's hidden in the yellow.

Good job!

 

Critique:

 

A bit more red/orange in the outer and upper areas like real flames. The heat source should be the lightest color so that's lower and inner areas.

Thank you!

I ment for the face to look somewhat hotter than the surroundings so I should have made the surrounding areas more orange/red to bring up the contrast.

 

Good job!

Yeah, I know. I've been trying but not being able to be patient enough to make it work. What I did with these was to base coat them with a bright red and then glaze (?) with watered down red-->orange-->yellow to make it settle in the "holes".

      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.
