Last year @Pochi painted me a barbarian as an exchange fig. (located here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80953-spring-exchange-brand-oathblood/&tab=comments#comment-1717270).
More specifically she painted me a barbarian inspired by the song Holy Diver by Dio (I tend to put odd things for inspiration in me exchange forms).
I liked him so much that I based my current 5th Ed. character off of the fig. Now Pochi's fig is far too precious (my precious!!) to go on the gaming table, so I've been using a bare Bones version with the intent of painting him "any day now".
Now that we've hit 7th level, I'm actually getting around to paint something. But, since I need him for the weekly game, I'm painting an alternate version first, then I'll swap figs and work on the Brand Oathblood version.
So I'm starting with 77373: Cuth Wolfson, Barbarian.
This will depict Dio wielding his mighty great axe, Eloise.
Now Cuth's default axe was a touch....limp, so I dug out the Bones III weapons pack and picked a nice stiff replacement.
Much better. Now just a little putty to fill in the gap and he'll be ready for his bath before linering.
The thought came to me, burning-hot in my mind, that while probably no one else would ever need one, *I* could really use a great ape in mortarboard and academic robes. An orangutan for preference, given their eccentric genius and their handlike feet. Reaper already does a Cyber-Ape, but that is a violent simian, and also I want three "hands" in use rather than two.
Here's the rough sketch,
and here's an armature I made late last night, compared to Orangutango.
I've been reading the advice posts, so I'll take it slow-ish, work in layers, and be ready to murder my darlings...
...is there other stuff I should be warned about? Is this a fool's errand? (yes, obviously, but can I *do* it?)
Love to hear from y'all!

More recently finished works, here are the female Soldiers for Frostgrave. I really liked these kits...the entire plastic sprue is a callback of equipment and options to the first Frostgrave release.
First, the metal Specialists:
