Reaper Bones 3: Executioner

Recommended Posts

Turned out pretty nice. Sometimes the quick diversionary paint jobs can be most satisfying. I can picture this guy showing up in a Mad Max movie though.

I think it's mainly because I don't care so much about the model. Since I don't play with mine I only buy models that I find interesting or pretty. However that leads to me not wanting to screw up and wanting to make the paint job "worthy of the model". Self induced pressure blabla. Painting some random dude I didn't expect makes it easier.

I love him! Executioner by day, Chippendale dancer by night!

 

Thank you! Haha he does look like that could be a fitting second occupation xD.

I think you did a phenomenal job.  Your tabletop is my current idea of "display worthy".  I think it came out exceptionally well

I feel the same way as you.  Since I don't play with 99% of mine (i did finally paint one as my PC in my current Pathfinder game), I seek "perfection" and i too wish to make my paint jobs "worthy" of the model.  Especially the metal ones I bought recently. I have one that I primed, started and was instantly disgusted with and stripped it because the results were not matching the vision I had in my head. Poor Ishara Snowfinch sits primed and waiting for me to feel confident enough to paint.

Very nice. Cool skintones

 

Thank you! I still haven't mastered a good layering technique but I'm trying my best to improve. Lighter skin tones are definitely still a struggle.

I pretty much only paint metal below 40mm because my skill isn't high enough to make up for the loss of detail. I need crisp details to guide me. But I do see the appeal for people that play with their minis. My big models are mostly bones because the loss of detail is not as bad. I have a Halloween Sophie that I probably painted and stripped 4 times now xD I do find that at the end if I don't care so much about the model it turns out at least okay. With this bones guy I can live with that.

Great job! I actually like this mini a lot, it has that 80's fantasy movie (Conan, Beast master) look to it lol.

 

He does! With a blonde Bob he could totally pose as he-man xD

Nice job! Awesome skin tone to be exact.. How about a little more blood (HAR HAR HAR :B): ) .. A few drops here and there would "reflect' his profession in a more realistic way.. Also Tamiya clear red with some black ink does wonders for the realistic "sanguis" look..

      I did this one as a speed paint for a D&D game at the last minute, and then he didn't have a base for the next two years.  Well, now he's done and has a base and is just waiting for his next chance to eat adventurers.

      As I'm actually getting to play 5e, and it looks like I'll get to keep playing for a while, I figured I should go ahead and pick a mini to represent my dwarven wizard.

      Now, he isn't your typical wizard, even for a dwarf, as he goes around in a chain shirt and swings his warhammer. So the Dwarf Wizard minis, as fun as they are, are out. Going through my Bones collection, I came across this guy: Ivar, Dwarf Cleric



      Not a perfect fit, especially the backpack, but not bad. Also going against him was the fact that his hammer was miscast on my copy.

      So... to work!



      I started by removing the backpack, and giving him a good scrub to make sure any mold remover was washed off.



      Then I had to find a new hammer. The Bones Weapon Sprues had one that worked. Just about the right size...



      Clipped off the old hammer, drilled out the hand...



      And while I was at it, I cut off all the decorative stuff off the backpack, and trimmed the base. Then using my Happy Seppuku courtyard stamp, I gave him a fancier base to stand on. It's hard to see, but the pin is already in his hand, and you can sort of see the hole drilled in the shaft of the hammer.



      And here it is all glued together!



      Hmm... the anvil in the middle of the backpack... just doesn't do it for me. So I ripped the backpack off, and went back to my bits box.



      In the end I cut the bedroll and lower bag completely away, and used some greenstuff and superglue to put it all back. The barrel is from one of the Games Workshop Brettonian Infantry kits... I think the bottle might be as well, but I'm not 100% on that. I'm still debating adding a length of rope to the backpack... but otherwise, the modding is done, and it's time to get painting!
