This is what I decided to do today while the football game was on..

The issue I'm having right now is threefold:  

First, I mixed Pearl White and Bloodless skin for the horns, but just don't think that looks right.. Any suggestions (my white(ish) color palette is pretty limited) would be awesome..

Second, I have no idea what color to use for the haft of the mace - it doesn't seem like it should be wood, but there's already a lot of iron and blacks in the mini.. 

Third, the hooves.. what sort of color mix do people use for replicating hooves..

 

Colors used:

skin - a concoction of clotted red, black, tanned skin and a bit of flame red that I'll never be able to replicate again.

armor - shadowed steel

mace ball - adamantium black

bace chain - blackened steel

hair and pants (i converted the thong to skintight leggings with a bit of liquid green - my little kids see enough crack on TV without it being on my desk too) - black

I decided to go with 'Aged Bone' for the hooves, 'Admanatium Black' for the mace handle and redid her horns in a combo of 1/3 Green Ocher and Pearl White..

 

I put her on a washer base (some of the default ones are *so* tiny) and sealed her this afternoon..

 

edit: having trouble getting my phone camera to focus on her properly ..

      Oh that Werner, he's done it again! Let me introduce you to Vanja, the Fire Giant Queen - original size. She's a great size for an Ogre and as a Player Character. Bones once again! Great level of detail allows so much to be done to bring life to the face. Her armor reminds me of my SCA rig. 
       
      Autumn hue, same palette as the Huge variation posted earlier. Underpainting/sketching used before paint. Plus! Pushed contrast. (Something a little bird taught me.)
       
      Gonna paint another. 
       
      Enjoy.

      For your viewing pleasure is Vanja, the Fire Giant Queen - without that hot, itchy cloak. The spot for her cloak was filled in and sculpted with Green Stuff to match her muscular anatomy. 
       
      Bones, Basil! Bones! I am continually impressed with the Bones medium. High detail, resilient, and inexpensive. She is going into my Orcs and Goblins Oldhammer Army. 
       
      Enjoy.

      Hello friends!
       
      My son and I play Talisman 4th edition all the time. I'ts his favorite game. The figures that come with the game aren't the greatest sculpts. With the Talisman board game having some great themed art i've wanted to get some cool Reaper Bones figures as replacements, paint them up and base them for the game.
       
      I've searched Reapers database to find figures that matched the likenesses of the miniatures that come with the game and the art on each character card. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to go with the strictly Bones route. There are some figures in the Dark Heaven Legends line that fit better.
       
      The attached is what i've come up with so far. I've included a photo of the original character cards and another photo of the corresponding Reaper figures that i've been thinking about.

      So this is a weird one. I know exactly where I got this figure. It's a Hasslefree sci-fi miniature female space dwarf sort of, I dunno, mercenary or something.
       
      ... I'm pretty sure. It's possible I am misremembering.
       
      Unfortunately, I've mislaid the packaging and Hasslefree has a tendency to remove temporarily out-of-stock figures from its catalogue and this one currently is not in it.
       
      Does anyone know her SKU and name?
       
      (She's the one on the right. The one on the left I already know is Hasslefree's "HFG405 Pilot Hayden," another space dwarf.
