OUTSTANDING! The Little Rogues make a WONDERFUL Color Party...BEAUTIFUL color choices & brushwork. The regimental device is UBERCOOLVERY WELL DONE!

The varying skin shades look TERRIFIC. That is an unique take & an imaginative idea that worked SPLENDIDLY.

Great work! I really like the colours and - as you pointed out - the eyes.

 

There is one thing though that looks weird to me: Those orange shoes of the green one somehow don't fit the scenery at all. I mean - you've got all this more or less dark colours, all harmonizing together and then then are bright orange shoes. I don't know. Doesn't fit in my opinion.

Thank you! The darkest goblin really isn't blue. It is my drow skin recipe and it has a dab of P3 Coal Black which is a blue black but not much. There is Nightshade Purple and another purple in there and yet, his photos look blue. Oh well!

Well.....there is a whole lot of brown and bone and beige and tan and I was trying to use other colors since it was looking pretty dull and and kind of blah. I decided to pull the green from the banner down into the loincloth and then using color theory, what goes good with green? Red/Orange. I even threw two washes over them to tone them down. You should have seen them before! I was going to repaint them but my husband said he likes them. I also think they are kind of funny because they are the school colors of my son-in-law's highschool which is in the neighboring small town where I grew up. So yeah, I was just stumped on what color to make them and even thinking about repainting them, not sure what color I would go with. Maybe light blue but not sure how I would like that with the blue loin cloth on the drum goblin and the light blue drummer. Hmmmm.....

It looks awesome. My favorite part is the rusted standard speaks and the longhorn. The gradient on the horns is amazing.

Can't wait to see the group picture, that will dissolve any consurn about the boots color since they will complement the Ogress's clothes.

Thank you! You rock! That is true, once I get the last ogre done and put them all together, there will be more orange!

 

Thanks for noticing the rust! Haha! I was afraid I had gone too dark with the horns but I wanted to differentiate it from the skulls and banner color.

Well, if you thought something out, it's fair enough.

 

I'm just giving away my impression ;-D

Those look amazing!  I love the colour gradations and the details on the banner and the drum especially. All of them look astoundingly beautiful.  

 

As a side note to an earlier comment: I always assume all goblins, orcs and other like creatures have extremely poor fashion sense and thus will literally wear the most hideous colours together. Just my thinking.

      The moon has blotted out the sun, so my little gobbo pal here needed to light a torch. How does he look? I'm particularly curious about the lighting, since I haven't tried anything like this before. There were three more of him on the sprue, so any advice you can offer will definitely be put to practical use! Thanks, guys!

      Finished the last mini in the Bones 3 Ogre Command set. Here is the Ogre Chieftain.
       
      He doesn't have a squire to polish his armor and the goblins use spit and their loincloths so....his armor isn't in the best of shape.
       
      The shield on the back probably needs some battle damage but I hated to mess it up after I spent so much time getting it to look nice! Maybe he "found" it.
       
      So here are pictures of the Ogre Chieftain and a group shot at the end. (I need a large photo background!)
       

       
      I added a tutorial on how to do the rust effect.

      The first miniature I have painted after opening Bones 3 box that arrived one week ago. Also, my first reaper miniature I would like to share.
       
      I must admit that I made a very poor job on the mould lines though and the paint job isn't as neat as I would like to...

         I recently finished the Dagon Statue terrain pieces from Bones 3.  Nothing fancy, but a series of drybrushed layers.
