got the cloak done, maybe a bit to shy on pushing contrast but in other way this kind of drive the focus on his head and robe ...maybe ^^...

I can see i miss a spot on his back ouch , good to take photo to realize that ^^.



For this on , color I used :

Scale75 Color : Black Leather, Brown Leather, Orange Leather and Birch, Vallejo model color Olive Green, and Lime Green.

Light Pass on recess and under shadow parts with Army painter Dark Tone Wash.

Last a bit of moss green using Vallejo Weather Effect Slimy Green Dark .

finally, I got the last parts done...and I am going to call it done so I can start on the basing for it.

I do have couple idea..but since I do also have an barbarian from AoW I wonder that he could ne cool to make a mini scene with those 2..this do not prevent me to start the base work anyway I can paint the barbarian after :)


well here is that orc completed...will do better photo after.

Thanks, he look quite terrific expression wise too :D 


Made a little more nice photo of that guy ( I a bit accentuated contrast on the picture, just a bit ^^ ).

Next update will be onto the base, and I certainly going to go for a mini scene with the other barbarian figure I have...just need to think about the little story to create the set now.

I started the base set and also thinking of what kind of set I am going to go with.




I kept those 3, with the top one being my initial idea.

I think I will do in a way the chracter can be removed so not fixed within the base , but that mostly in case i need them back alone ..so i will meed to do some nice cut so they fit well on the ground.


let me know if you have preference regarding the set between those 3 , I am not sure yet , but the position pf the tree is what will drive the rest of the base.

Very slow progress but have to wait the pass of paint / wash for the rock side of the base dry.

Next , some pass of dry brush and starting to put the green moss wash where I want and add on top of that some real dried moss like stuff )..so it should start to get a bit more colors.


I did not use much yet my summer grass and tuff , so I think I am going to go for a rich green for the grass , foliage stuff mostly.

Will see how that goes.


Just for quick up some fancy picture of the base rock painted and washed, and with mister orc on it :D waiting for his barbarian friend :D

      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.

      This one was super fun to paint 
      This is the first time I tried to do glowing effect on a mini, I think it could have been better but I like how it turned out!
      Comments and criticism are welcome

      This mini was super challenging for me, but also very fun to paint! :D

      This was originally not one a mini I planned to paint.  However, I got two in an auction lot and the base fits well with one of my few base stamps (in this case, the Happy Seppuku Stone Shore stamp) so... why not?

      (click for larger versions)
      This is the state she is in now.  She's been primed and a thin coat of Brown Liner (1 part Wash Medium, 1 part Brown Liner, 1 part water) has been painted on top to bring out details.  (I found a mold line I missed on the side of her knee and relined her legs with a thicker coat of Brown Liner, because I forgot the original mix.  The thicker mix is not likely to obscure detail when painting but it does make it harder to see in these pictures.  Oops.)
      (Note to self: Get a non-grey background for these pictures in the future.)
      I've decided her doublet, pants, boots, and gloves are leather.  Her doublet and pants are stitched in the front and are worn over more normal clothes.  (Both her doublet and pants have obvious stitching in the front and the alternative is undesirable in a family friendly environment.)  Her shirt includes her loose poofy sleeves.  (Which are probably good for a rogue since they mask the shape of her arms.)  I believe the most interesting detail missing from her store page is her knife holster on her left leg.
      I wasn't entirely sure what to use for colors so I did a mockup using my paint program.  The knife in her holster will not be visible from this side but I included them to get an idea for how they would look.

      (click for a larger version)
      The current colors are: (all paints are Reaper MSP or Bones)
      Skin: Youthful Flesh Hair: Blond Hair Doublet, boots, and knife handles: Ruddy Leather Pants and gloves: Nut Brown Belt, stitches, and other leather accents: Leather Brown Shirt and sleeves: Dark Elf Skin Blades: This is one of the colors from the Blade Steel swatch Floor: Dungeon Grey  
      The focuses for this mini are her face, her hair, textures (leather and wood), and NMM for the metal bits.  Let's see how this goes.

      Some pretty good deals in the early bird specials:
      Offering 30mm, 70mm, Busts and 1/10 () Scale figures.  Something for everyone!  
      I got the early bird 4 bust deal.  FWIW I have some of their earlier figures and they've been very good quality.
