Ogres and goblins! Bones 3 (77454, 77455, 77456, 77444, 77445, 77566, 77567, 77568)

I love the shared color scheme between them, particularly the blue arm wrap on the one ogre makes me think some unfortunate goblin got a little to feisty and was made as a constant example to others. I also really like how you managed to work in so many different colors on figures that I would have felt fell into just different shades of brown. my favorite three are the large drum, the rusty armor on the ogre chief and that spectacular banner.

Those are ridiculously good. The way everything ties together is spectacular, and that's some of the best rusty armor I've ever seen.

Great Warband!

 

I do like the colours a lot!

The Goblins are looking wonderful in blue!

 

No idea why Buglips hates them, blue suits them!

Maybe he's just jealous..

Great skin on all of them! I like the little touches of blue on each mini that ties them all together. Nicely painted!

Thanks for the support all, I wasn't expecting that kind of response! I'm glad you all seem to like the colors - maybe I was a bit too close to the project to see it objectively.

 

Painting them all at once certainly helps me tie everything together. Plus, minis just look better in bunches. Taken individually, each has its flaws,  but as a group they look pretty seamless.

The rust is actually super easy and fast to do; I'll share a recipe at some point. I enjoy painting metals so its something I've toyed with for many years.  

I'll work on fixing that goblin image tonight. for some reason the formatting is all goofy.

      I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
       
      First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
      Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
      Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
       
      Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80720-kord-the-destroyer-bones/
       
      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.
       

       
      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173).  She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops.  She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.




      Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time.  All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest?  Finally just brute forced it to get her done.


       
      Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details.  But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!

      In response to a local club challenge, I painted this dwarf in 3 colors chosen by a computer program.
      written by @SirLarpsAlot
       
      Golden Yelllow, Winter Blue and Leather Brown + B&W 
       
       
      edit, I do need to fix that eye...

      Hello everyone.
       
      As I recently finished an orc squad, I’m now focusing on a goblin one. I’d like to share my progress with you.
       
      These will be used for tabletop gaming, in DnD campaigns I recently started DMing.
       
      They’re all reaper minis. On these pictures I had just removed the mold lines, glued the separate parts and put the priming on :
      - 03850: Armored Goblin Spearmen (2) (the smallest one)

       
      - 03462: Goblin Warriors (4)

       
       
      - 03777: Cave Goblin Archers (2)

       
      - 03838: Sakarat, Goblin Wizard

       
      There are a few other ones for which I didn’t take pictures at the beginning.
       
      I didn’t want to make them green, so I was going for a yellowish orange for their skin... But as I was wandering through all the paints at my local GW, I stumbled on that “Squig Orange” and decided that was the one.
       
      So now they’re almost red :


      And here are the others that I didn’t think about photographing at the beginning :
      - 2 copies of 07003: Dungeon Dwellers: Bloodbite Goblins (2)

       
      - 14095: Neek, Reven Sergeant

       
      These last two already got some spare paint from other minis painting.
