I love this figure.
Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
They have bent back a little (Sword).
I did a WIP on him. Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path. My DM said "Vikings." Kord has that vibe for sure.
I tried to paint the base like grass.
The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword. It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what. What is tail? What are legs? I did my best.
Overall, I'm pleased with him. He seems like such a bad-a$$.
As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close. Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
I am not above blatant copying if it will push my skills and teach me something.
@Wren Your version of this was The Definitive version of this figure, in my mind.

There have also been some other lovely versions of Joy.
I am a character in a Reign of Winter campaign for Pathfinder. The DM gave me a list of monsters we will fight, and a fairy type fey is in there, so I figured it would be a great excuse to paint my Joy.
I haven't tried blue skin before. That was the reason I wanted to copy Wren's version.
Here are some pics.
This is the first time I've used my iPhone for pics. It does a good job getting close, but the white balance seems a little yellow.
Someone had asked Wren about Reaper sparkle paints.
I went ahead and tried some Sparkling Snow in the wing membranes, but it didn't show enough in hand.
So, I glazed the wing membranes and her cheeks and her base with a very thin layer of Vallejo Model Color Metal Medium.
You can't see it well in the pictures, but it is a nice effect in hand.
I was least happy with the base. I tried to sculpt snow overhanging her base with green stuff. Just not the effect my mind's eye was seeking.
I am most happy with her eyes and face. I tried to glaze some pink and purple and sparkle into her face to warm it up and give her some pixie dust effect.
Again, not showing up great in the photos, but I like the effect in hand.
Her left eye I managed to get on the first try. It really represents my best luck with an eye. The Iris is a mix of Spectral Glow and Moth Green. I remembered Wren's Joy having greenish eyes, but thought they looked otherwise human, so I painted these that way. Then I reviewed Wren's Joy, and her eyes looked otherworldly.
You can see, I had a "Dicken's" of a time trying to get the right eye to match the left. I never could, but after 10 tries, this is the best I could do.
At arm's length, it looks fine.
For anyone interested, paint recipes are spoilered here:
Overall, I'm very pleased with it.
I hope I did the original inspiration justice.
This was an impulse buy for me 'cause I don't play Pathfinder, but the Reaper range has a lot of really cool mini's.
From what I understand, the Scribbler is an incarnation or possessed by an ancient evil God, so I gave him some "psycho" eyes (ie Iris only touching the lower part of the eyeball).
Tried to make a desert base, but put far too much grass on it.
Thanks for looking.
Here the second of my august bunch: Reaper's 60161 "Ilnerik Sinvanshin", a vampire from Pathfinder setting.
On my setting, though, he's Faude Carfilhiot, a perfect homunculus created by the archalchemist Pandelume. A wizard, alchemist, dangerous figure with a taste for cruelty.
Here, yet again, I used that frightening black & white palette, with - I think - moderate success: I could still have been a bit smoother on the black highlights. It's a very delicate figure, small details everywhere, lots of texture changes on the clothing. I tried (again) to convey an albino look. I cut off the metal strip to use that resin mosaic textured base, which I painted with the same black & white palette.
