    WOC40048, Orc Warrior

    Hi everyone, not a Reaper model this time. Here is a Wizards of the Coast WOC40048, Orc Warrior sculpted by Mike McVey. I painted it with Reaper's MSP acrylic paint and inks. This official Dungeons & Dragons model is out of production.

    WOC40048, Orc Warrior

    Thanks for your comments. I bought this model a long time ago, our next DnD session was the perfect opportunity to lay some color on it. I took new approaches to paint it and I'm very happy how it turned out. I glazed purple and dark red on his leather armor, painted tattoo on his arms and painted the blade to make it look like cold steel.
  12. Hi everyone, it's an Orcish Weekend. Here is 14270, Dantral the half-Orc, Reven Captain sculpted by Gene Van Horne. This model is from the Warlord line and part of the Reven faction. I painted it with Reaper's MSP acrylic paint and ink.
  13. Hi everyone, I recently had the pleasure of realizing that I inadvertently bought the same Gnoll model twice. So, I decided to convert two of them to create a little variety in my hunting party. Read the text under each picture to have more detail. This post was purposely written as a guide for any who would like to try their hands at converting Reaper Bones model or any other models. I used two 77236 Bloodmane the Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Tre Manor, 77235 Toghra the Gnoll Leader sculpted by Jason Wiebe and 14056 Weapon Pack 1 sculpted by Tim Kaufman. I first separated the dagger handle from the body. Just a simple notch did the trick. I then cut the trunk along the belt. Again, on the other side of the model, I cut the body following the belt as a guide. I have this hollow feeling in my stomach... Same thing for Toghra, cut the body along the belt line. I drilled a hole in Toghra’s lower section and cut a small nail to pin the two parts together. I drilled a hole in Bloodmane’s upper body section and tested the pin in. I glued the pin in the leg part. I’m using Gorilla Super Glue. I then removed the handaxe cutting the handle just above the fist. I keep it for later use. The tricky part is to drill a hole in straight line through the fist. I had to use a small drill bit, smaller than the new weapon handle not to tear the plastic. I used a slightly bigger drill bit to get the hole a little larger. After cleaning the mold line on the new weapon, I cut the handle in halves in order to keep the pommel intact. I had to use a file to reduce the diameter of the handle. Also, I removed two spikes from the shield to alter its aspect from the one the other Gnoll Worrior is wearing. Finally, I’m using a piece of wooden stick to adjust the posture of the model on its base. I often use this simple trick to level my models. I use super glue to fix the parts together. I’m using 40mm round base for the Gnoll. These models are large and even if there in game space size is 25mm, I personally prefer larger base to have more room for decoration. That’s it, I’ll need to fill the gap above the belt and along the shoulder. I’ll also be using Greenstuff to fill the gap and complete the base before cleaning everything with soft soap and water prior to painting. I added some notches on the cutting edge of the original Gnoll’s plastic axe. I’ll be using it as a battlefield wreck weapon to decorate the base.

    Lizardmen group on swamp base

    The tall grass is a product from the company Woodland Scenics, SKU: FG173 Field Grass Light Green. Have a look at the video here, or Youtube Model Realistic Field Grass Woodland Scenics Model Scenery. I make small clumps one at a time and use super glue because it dries faster. They also have video on Realistic Water. In fact, I think they have videos on how to use all their product.

    Lizardmen group on swamp base

    Thank you everyone. It is true that completing the base makes the models even more attractive. I am happy to have taken the time to create these muddy water effect. I first painted the muddy surface, I fixed the grass in place with super glue and painted on dry glue. Then I applied two realistic layers of Realistic Water, giving the first layer 12 hours to harden before applying the last layer.

    Thanks for your comments everyone. These Bugbear were a lot of fun to paint, I'm happy you like them.
  19. 02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman sculpted by Ben Siens. It’s mounted on a 40mm round base and was painted with Reaper's MSP acrylics paint.
  20. 77292, Giant Wererat sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Painted up with Reaper's MSP acrylic paint and mounted on a 50mm round base. I added saliva to embellish his toothy grin.
  21. I made feathers with Green Stuff And, glued them on Toghra’s spear. These makes a nice ornaments for a cold iron magical barbed spear.

    02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman

    Hi everyone, here's 02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman. This model was sculpted by Ben Siens. It’s mounted on a 40mm round base and was painted with Reaper's MSP acrylics paint. After a major earthquake shook the mountain range of western Zenitonia, Skrug and his clan had no other choice then move. Their entire lair was destroyed in a dreadful collapse. Dozens of Bugbear died or were trapped under the unstable rubbles, survivors had to leave. Has Hruggek abandoned his fateful worshipers? For, after traveling by night and hiding in a valley of the Vermillion Hills, the horde had to stop by the Lynx River torrents. There, they were decimated by a group of adventurers passing by looking for Belladonna berries. Only two families managed to escape the slaughter crossing the river on a makeshift raft. Belladonna or Wolfsbane berries are very toxic, they are also an essential ingrediant to concoct the cure against lycanthropy. But this is another story.

    Beautiful, I like the free hand and the way you painted her eyes, like she's looking sideways. I think the NMM turned out well too.
  24. Thanks for your comment @malefactus. You're right, I could have removed them from their base. I didn't even think about it. My plan is to glue sand on some part of the bases to blend in the original plastic base and the sculpted Greenstuff and stones. I may also use crackle paste to create a dry desert scenery on some bases. I may even build a display base when I'm done painting the models. As of now, here are some more picture of the project. I filled the gap on Bloodmane’s shoulder. Same thing along the belt, I filled the narrow gap that was left after gluing the parts together. And I used the its original axe to decorate its base. I added Greenstuff on Toghra’s spear and textured it a little. I glued a bone from its original staff on its base. I filled the gap between the two body parts and waited the Greenstuff to be hard before working on the final layer. I started to carve its coat following the existing folds the best I could. The result is simple. We’ll see how it looks when it’s painted. Same thing at the back, I carved folds on the coat to cover the space as best as I could. The result seems rudimentary for now. We’ll see what can be done with paint. I hope you will enjoy and that some of you will find valuable information to help converting your models.
  25. This one promises to cause a lot of trouble whenever he's going to get out of its lair. You did an amazing work creating this three-legged Mushroom Shaman.
