Every DM needs wolves. These were bare metal used on the gaming table for far too long!
I've been wanting to paint these for a long time, but was intimidated by the fur.
I finally decided to take the plunge.
I did some research on the web for images for inspiration, as well as the forums.
Here's what I came up with.
First, the individuals.
Here was the inspiration photo from google images for a varied color gray wolf.
This is what I came up with for him. Coincidentally, it ended up very similar to Anne's picture on the Reaper Web Store.
Next, I wanted a run-of-the-mill gray wolf.
Here is an inspiration photo.
And the model.
And, as these are all for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path, I wanted a white wolf!
Here was the inspiration.
I was surprised to find so much cream and not so much white, so I tried to replicate it on the model.
I also tried blue eyes, but they didn't pop quite well enough. And I threw on some snow and cork "rocks."
I wasn't entirely happy with it overall, but it is acceptable.
Finally, here are some group shots.
Overall, I had fun painting these, and knocked all three out in about a week.
That's SUPER fast for me.
Have had to rush some minis for our ongoing Dnd campaign, Hoard of the Dragon Queen. Am not the DM but paint the minis.
All Reaper Bones that started with Army Painter ink washes in one colour over the whole thing. Then using Vallejo paints as base layers and finishing off with another ink wash to tie things together.
The Drakes are "young fire dragons" with the wings cut off. With more time I would have sorted out the two stumps where each wing was.
The Lizardman is standing in for a troglodyte and the Lilies are standing in for Violet Fungi.
The cultists are just the Mythos / Cthulu cultists.
There is a roper as well.
Can really recommend lining Bones with ink as a liner which I know a lot of others recommend. The whole lot took 3 hours so it is a quick way of getting things onto the table.
I finally finished by Giant Rats Dozen from Bones I.
I tried to give them fur texture. The texture from the cast was too light for drybrushing, so it's essentially free hand.
The gray rats have some red and green glazed into the shadows to give them a little diseased feel.
I spent WAY too much time painting these...
Mold lines on the actual rat (as opposed to the base) were too tricky to try to get rid of, especially in light of the subject matter. They’re rats. A lot of them.
Painted this guy up to act as our dwarven barbarian for some Adventurers League gaming at an upcoming con.
Messing around with skin tones. I may go back and add some tattoos before I finish coating him with varnish (he's got one coat of gloss right now). Am not sure what to put on him, other than maybe the rune for anger.
