Thanks guys!

 

Got a little bit more done:-

Found a little bit more torso so this got painted up the same as his skin.

Then it was tentacle time (1:1 Dead Flesh/Olive Green > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Dead Flesh/Olive Green > 1:1:1 Dead Flesh/Olive Green/Bonewhite).

 

Starting to realize this one doesn't work on his fancy resin base as well as the others do, he really needs to be slightly buried in the dirt.

 I ended up sculpting a bunch more tentacles around him. A combination of that, plus some water/slime effect could help him look less like he's hovering over the fancy resin.

That's a really neat idea, thanks!

 

My greenstuffing skills are very basic, but I should be able to plug the gaps with a few tentacles.

I'll try and get the skullz painted today, get everything varnished and give it a go.

Had fun playing with my Greenstuff and he looks better connected to his base.

 

Letting it dry overnight now.

Made a little progress:-

Painted his new tentacles to match his old tentacles.

Painted his book.

The cover is Scarlett Red with Bronze detailing, the pages are Iraqi Sand shaded with a touch a Brown Wash, a Magic Blue bookmark and squiggles!

Thanks guys!

I know they're the most basic of mods, but I'm rather proud of the job I did making him extra tentaclely.

 

 

Little bit more progress:-

Started on his staff.

The staff itself is 1:1 Leather Brown/Cold Grey with a Brown Wash, and I've started on the fleshy worm part (It's Dwarf Flesh with Flesh Wash so far), but I don't get what the balls on the spines are supposed to be.

I'll have to give it some thought.

Progress:-

Finished off the fleshy tentacle with a highlight of Dwarf Flesh, the spines and teeth are Iraqi Sand with a Brown Wash and the mouth and orbs are 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Dwarf Flesh.

The final orb I did as an eyeball, I don't think that's how eyeballs work but I think it looks kinda neat.

 

Just gotta do the base, although I have made that a much harder job for myself.

As suspected I did have to repaint several tentacles that got in the way of base painting, but he's done:-

 

Just the cute, little necromancer left.

Then I going to have to buy some more Dreadmere minis.

*Blows dust of thread*

Previously, I had painted her dress Scarlett Red and then made the bad, corner-cutting decision to give it a Black Wash.

It looked terrible (instead of staying in the folds, the wash all pooled at the bottom of the dress) and killed off all motivation to work on her for several months.

 

With attempt two, I basecoated the dress with 1:1 Scarlett Red/Dark Green, shaded with 1:1:1 Scarlett Red/Dark Green/Pure Black and highlighted it with 1:1:1 Scarlett Red/Dark Green/Red Orange, with Bronze buttons.

A lot happier with the results this time, so hopefully I'll keep going.

      Painted this up for Rat13 as part of the Summer Exchange. Wanted to do a limited summer/fall color scheme and I am happy with how he turned out. These are not the best pictures in the world as they were taken quickly before packing him up.

      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.
