Lol... that would be troll cologne

 

I really like the brown, green, yellow-bumps skin thing going on there.   I think I can figure out how to copy that but if you get a chance I would appreciate a brief explaination of the steps you used to achieve that awesome ( and truly grungy ) look.

Good paintin'

Moldy skin base, dark green wash. Highlighted the bumps with leaf green to a mixture of leaf green and yellow. Brown glaze random here and there, the important thing is not to run the brown over the entire skin.

Thanks...

I had thought the brown was paint painted on lightly over base of green.  I appreciate the heads up, I have some trolls to paint and at least one will be a shameless copy of your fine work.

      This is a scale question. Specifically on the big guys in the back. When I had started roughing out the wireform and slapping a little base putty on them, I had the idea of Trolls in armor. Now that I'm looking at them compared to some reaper conversions, I'm thinking they might end up having to be giants, demons, or something else. What do you think would fit for those figs at the scale they are? Prefer DnD themes if you think Troll wouldnt work. Also, open to weird fantasy creatures as long as they fit the scale and are tall and wirey.    These aren't for any game/encounter in particular, I just enjoy making stuff. L to R,
      - WIP necromancer and ghouls I'd started scratchbuilding before they got shelved. Looking forward to getting back into those.
      - Big guys in back are undecided
      - An old barbarian conversion WIP from a reaper bones
      - Recent child scratchbuild - My warg rider conversion WIP from a Reaper Bones (which has it's own post here)
      - and I believe this was a Warhammer Chaos figure that I had added tentacles to an painted about a decade ago.

      Finished up my Marsh Troll that I totally didn't leave sitting on my shelf half painted for two years because I was procrastinating and painting everything else. That random severed head definitely surprised me.

      So - my next small project - I cannot keep with just one ... errrr.
       
      After having a small but nice talk with @SGHawkins09 and being sent home by the doc to cure a sickness I recently picked up, I had to decide what to do next.
       
      As all those wonderful and enthusiatic responses to my previous projects (I mean it - I never had so much response in such a short time) made it near to impossible to just sign off from the forums and disappear into the wilderness, I agreed to take on a different plan.
       
      I just grabbed into my miniature box and took some figures to paint them and get them done. And then it struck me: I am at the Reaper Forums yet I missed to paint a Reaper miniature.
       
      So I picked out ... errr - let me see ... Troll Slayer Sophie! Yay! - hey! Hooooraaay! Who the heck is Troll Slayer Sophie and when did I buy her?
       
      It seems I already started to paint her, but then decided otherwise, stripped *chuckles* her and put her away. Hm. Good point to start her all over again.
       

       

       
      As I chose her to be the figure I wanted to paint next I had to think about the color scheme I wanted to use.
       
      Well. I had no idea. I never really cared about fantasy style, so it never meant anything to me. The things I know about are modern or sci fi. I played a lot of Warhammer40k back in the days. I even wrote fanfiction stories which included the Imperial Guard and the Sisters of Battle ...
       
      ... Sisters of Battle ...
       

       
      hm. that could make a great colour scheme. Works well with the flesh tones and still contrasts it. And as Sophie is a demon, the demon/witch hunter theme fits her rather perfectly.
       
      I'll take it!
       
       
       
      Well then - primed her and started painting.
       

       

       
      But I am not sure - do I want to give her skin the grim dark appearance of an Adepta or a more Succubi-like appearance like ... this one:
       
      Succubus
       
       
      Suggestions?

      Two more of the horde,
       
      These were made by the now deceased Harlequin company.
       
      Again the snake and purple / red colours.
       
      Swamp based, water effects are Vallejo Still Water.
       
      Enjoy.
