There are some minis that are absolutely brilliant in Bones. This is not one of them. But it's a mini that works for a fellow players for our Curse of Strahd campaign, so...
First problem, the staff was really bent out of shape. Impressive since it's connected to both his hand and the cloak. A quick boil and then ice bath to care of that.
Then there were three mold lines. Unfortunately extensive on the outstretched arm and on the smooth cloak.
Once those were taken care of, I glued him to a base, splashed on the brown liner and then began to block in colors.
Afterburn Grey, peacock green, tanned shadow, and dessert stone were the primary colors I used to start with.
That was last week, and it was enough to get the okay from my player. So tonight, I worked on him some more. Added Rosy flesh, nut brown, some black lining, and Marigold for the hair.
I think I'm going to wash the hair with something a little more orange red, then bring up the color more with the blond triad. Not sure what to do with the leather bandoleer, but I'm thinking maybe a red leather?
Sorry for being away from the Forum for so long.
So ... how does one pronounce "peryton"?
I've usually said it like "keratin" (stress on the first syllable), but I suppose it could rhyme with "enlighten" (stress on the second syllable) instead.
I realized only weeks ago that I had been mispronouncing "wyvern" all my life, and the first syllable is long like "five", not short like "shiv".
I taught a class called "Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class at ReaperCon 2018.
I used the Bones peryton as a demonstration, because of the big feathered wings.
The first-edition Monster Manual gives the coloration of a peryton as blue-black head, black horns, green wings, and blue chest (male) or drab chest (female).
I showed my students pictures of real hawks and falcons, most of which have dark tips on their wing feathers, and sometimes a series of dark stripes.
Then I painted one of the peryton's wings to have stripes like that (black on green).
Now I've decided to paint the whole figure, to at least a good tabletop standard.
I attached it to a 50mm round base, sculpted some extra rocks, and sculpted the skeleton of a past victim (a Reaper pewter skull, plus bones made from putty).
Perytons bite the hearts out of their prey, so I made the skeleton's ribcage open/broken in front.
Here's how my version looked after I spent 2 hours slapping on Black Brush-on Primer and White Brush-on Primer, to establish the overall values.
The primer didn't fully cover the striped green wing from my ReaperCon class.
Hello, this is my first post on the reaper forums.
I wanted to share my most recently painted miniature, the Ogre Guard sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
The base is made out of a 74036: 2" Round Base, some apoxie sculpt for the rocks, green flocking and some army painter grass tufts.
I picked this figure because while he is intimidating, he hasn't started attacking yet.
This monster fits the look of both wild beast or gentle giant.
I bought 4 faceless horrors painted OD green. After soaking them in SG for three days I still couldn’t get the paint off. So I decided to leave one green and repaint the other 3. One is done in purple/pink/white, one purple/brown/pale flesh, the other is purple/pinks/flesh. All the teeth are polished bone and linen white. Eyes are either clear red, fire orange, or sun yellow. Every one got clear coat to look slimy. Pic heavy.
