Ok, this isn't a New year's resolution ( I don't make those), but I have decided that I need to get over the "I'm not good enough" thing and try to push myself to paint all those figures that I've been saving for 'some day'.

That day is NOW.

 

I grabbed this figure during a Black Friday sale for something like 4 or 5 bucks. Depending on where you get it from, it's usually more like 30. It's 28mm scale, but it stands pretty tall; I'm guessing it's 54mm tall or thereabouts. I'll get a proper picture with Sir Forscale a little bit later on.

 

I'd like you to help push me to do my absolute best with this guy, please. If you think something looks good, cool, tell me that. By the same token, if you think something doesn't look good, tell me that, too. I want you guys to 'break out the red pen' as Cyradis would say.

 

For reference, this is the figure I'm talking about (picture from the WWW, not my figure).

I stand (actually, sit at my computer) in awe of you, for I have had the box set of the three of those figs for like... almost six years, and am still too intimidated to get to painting them.

 

You have my support in this endeavor.

I promise to monitor this thread and provide support and critique as you go.  You have set the bar high by providing us a comparison tool at the start...

 

But if you focus, I know you can manage this and impress us as well as yourself with what you achieve!

If you like, show us what colourscheme you're going for and show us the actual paints you will be using/at your disposal..

That way we can help with colour choices, what to mix/blend etc..

 

Block in the major colours and start from there, tell us what you like to achieve.

When you are satisfied with it, it is done.

That sounds good, but I haven't decided on a color scheme yet. I'm thinking about going darker than the picture from Scibor, though.

Thank you, I hope I can do it justice.

 

Quick pic to give you all an idea of size.

...and here he is (almost) completely assembled; I left the horns off allow for filling of holes with GS.

That is an impressive miniature. The base is a BEAUTY. I think you will find that the size of the miniature makes it a little easier to paint. All the details are enlarged; there will be no eye strain on this Lad.

I've eyeball these for quite some time. I didn't realize how large they were. Hmmmm

 

Will watch this one come together.

And it has begun!

 

Nothing terribly impressive yet, I just finished the green stuffing and assembly. I also got a coat of primer on him. I was gonna do him him grey, but the resin is grey and i wanted to be able to tell if I missed spots, so I did him sorta terra-cotta/fleshy colored.

 

....which just made me realize that he's almost all skin. What was I thinking?!? I'm really not all that great at skin.

 

Well, this IS supposed to be my 'no more i'm not good enough' figure, so here goes nothing.

I haven't forgotten about this, I've just been in a bit of a funk the past couple weeks. I went out and got myself a wet pallet to start using with this guy, and then I didn't even open the darn thing. I'm hoping it'll help me out; I know it's not a magic fix it uper, but I've been having a hard time working on his skin so far because I'm either not making enough of the color I want, or it dries up and I need to remix some more, hoping I got the ratios correct.

 

It's a little hard to tell, but I've done some more work on his skin.

      Ok, I've got the box organized and packed; hopefully I can make to the post office Monday to start it on it's way.
       
      Here's the list:
       
      Ratmaster 2000--arrived 10/31, sent 11/1
      SGhawkins 09--arrived11/2, sent 11/10
      ShadowPhase--arrived 11/13, sent 11/16
      Strawhat--arrived 11/19, sent 12/1
      GlitterWolf--arrived 12/10
      RobinH--arrived 1/8, sent 1/9
      Necromancer
      Generic Fighter
      Disserma
      RedAmbrosia
      Ttuckerman
      Fire Eyes
      Chris Palmer

      If there's anything left, send it back to me, and it'll get put into the next (regular version) BoGW that happens.
       
      There are enough items included for everyone to make four (4) picks. After you've grabbed some stuff, seal it back up and send it the next person. This is all based on the generosity of people at Reapercon, so there's no need to put anything back in; this is a straight up gift.
      There are 2 pairs of sunglasses in there; they don't have anything to do with Reaper/Reapercon other than that they were in the swag bag, and (I'm guessing) donated by the city of Denton. If you want a pair take 'em, they don't have to count as one of your 4 items, unless your conscience dictates otherwise.
      If you want to help out with international shipping fees (and no one is under any obligation to do so) contact Strawhat, GlitterWolf, or RobinH to work something out.
       
      A big THANK YOU!! to everyone who donated stuff for this to happen.

      If my memory is working properly, I think this guy came out a blister pack marked Ral Partha Imports, so he may have originally been a citadel sculpt. In any case, he's older than at least some of you reading this. His paint got pretty badly dinged up in a move, so i decided to fix him up. Which led to a complete repaint. I hope you  like him.

      I made these three guys out of my bits box. The bodies and arms are Wargames Factory Vikings, the heads and weapons are from various other sources. The Wargames Factory bits have rather shallow detail, so I didn't spend too much time painting them. I figure they'll make good village militia and/or bandits. Background figures whose job is to take up space and get killed by either the heroes or the orcs.
