  1. Since even cultists love fashion, I went with purple marble on this one. This is the Bones version of the 77139, Altar of Evil sculpted by Bob Olley.
  2. Hello everyone, something different today. Because adventurers also need a reward, here are pictures of 02313, Treasure Hoard (third from the set) sculpted by Bob Olley.
  3. The Brass Bull. out of the Bully for you subset in the Bones 2 core set. This is a not-Gorgon from D&D. I do not know why Gygax would call this a Gorgon, since it really has nothing to do with the Gorgon sisters from Greek myth. But what it is, is a massive metal bullock that has a petrifying green gas breath attack. Even though the Gorgon is described as iron, in that it can be rusty, I did it in bronzey brassey colours. I gave it a bit of green around the muzzle to look like some residue from it's halitosis. More beneath the click
  4. Finished this guy up.
  5. This is what I'm working on at the moment. I had to start over a few time due to issues with the sculpt. Before I even got started I had to, well I didn't have to but I chose to, fix some of the more obvious problems with the sculpt using Apoxie Sculpt. Some of the mail had no detail at all, so I add it in, and there were some just terrible mold lines. I finally just decided to say forget it and move on with the painting. I was going for more of a grey skin, but ended up with a greener skin. I'm ok with where it's going, but on the next Orc I'll adjust the skin tone. Sorry the pics are a bit w
  6. Hi everyone, here is the second Goblin model from Ral Partha's 10-512 Monsters Boxed Set produced in 1992. It's a 25mm tall metal "lead" miniature that was sculpted by Bob Olley and I painted it with acrylics. I love how the scimitar guard and the helmet were sculpted on this model.
  7. Good morning all, Here's a figure I just finished, from the Hackmaster/Kenzer & Co. line that Ral Partha currently owns, a Bob Olley Greater Satyr. It's a pretty large figure, more in tune with heroic scale, like most of the Hackmaster figures, fun and easy to paint. The only thing I noticed when I based him is that my base has a chip in the plastic but too late to do anything about, as I saw it after I super glued it to the figure. I tried to give him mostly natural tones, but had to do a bit of gold in there as well for the decoration on the bow and his pan pip
  8. You've been groping underground for a while when you catch the sound of beating bat wings down the cavern ahead. A few steps more and the oozing walls open on a large cave. Small rusty-red creatures are flying in circle between stalactites, four pincer-like legs and a proboscis dangling under their hairy body. Abruptly, you notice a change in their behavior. They all hover in place and their yellowish eyes pierces in your direction. Before you have time to do anything, you are swarm by these bloodthirsty Stirges. Here are the 02691, Striges Dark Heaven Legends sculpted by Bob Olley
  9. Ok, painted one of these up a few months ago and just did the other 2 a couple weeks ago. Just picked up an airbrush so this was my first time trying out some zenithal highlighting. I'm pretty happy with how the new ones turned out. First the old one Then here is one of the new ones And the group photo
  10. So here is one of the more interesting figures I've seen in a while, and a bit unusual. This is from the Hackmaster series that Ral Partha acquired and currently offers, sculpted by Bob Olley. She is a female dwarf cleric, and as was mentioned somewhere way back when in the Lord of the Rings if I recall originally, she is a bearded female dwarf. Now I'm not going to pretend that she is a beauty to behold, but I think she's an extremely cool little lady, who would probably shove that hammer up into where she sun no longer shines. I probably would have finished her sooner, but I alway
  11. So I recently posted Rozmina, the Half-Orc Pirate from Derek Schubert. Here is the other half-orc I was working on at the same time, but as this one had a lot more going on with armor and such, he took quite a while longer. Really cool mini sculpted by Bob Olley around 2003, large figure, good heft to him. the only frustrating part on this one was the chainmail and trying to get all the paint into all those little holes, and I can see some spots where it didn't work quite like I wanted it to. Also what color would you guys call his metals that aren't "steel" colore
  12. I'm a pretty new painter this guy is my 20th or so miniature and is the first one i'm willing to brave showing off. Any creative criticism is not only accepted but is greatly appreciated, I've seen the beautiful pieces that people have done on here and aspire to be half as good! This is also my first post to the forum so I apologize in advance if I've misplaced anything.
  13. Here are two of the statues I finished for my Ruined Temple terrain piece. Bast spoilered so it'll be SFW as she's topless. I still need to put another coat of gloss over them, to protect them, but otherwise they're just waiting for the temple to fnish.
  14. Hi all and happy new year! Here are two figures I recently finished that Ral Partha has re-released, a ranger and a female fighter. The ranger was sculpted by Jim Johnson and the fighter was Bob Olley. Fun figures to paint, kind of bulky and a larger scale than the old Partha stuff I'm usually working on. and just for fun, I took a close up of the lady's face, because it always seems to happen that when a character has something raised over his head, the detail becomes smaller because your picture is so much higher: Anyhow, really e
  15. Apparently my light box set up creates some specular reflections because these boys are not so shiny in normal lights. Anyhow, I really like these old school, Bob Olley ogres. I hope you do too.
  16. Orrrcs! I got two reaper army packs of these bad boys, and they look awesome. One pack, 06015, only had the two Sandra Garrity orcs and not the two Bob Olley ones. Their fantastic customer service has already sorted this out for me, so a Bones orc of the same type is standing in as a stunt double to show the other one that comes in the pack while his compatriots travel by mail. But these six funtime fellows are getting some paint, and I've been looking forward to this!
  17. I love the tradition where I get minis that my daughter picked out. This is one that she described as "a Squid-Octopus." Also "He looks like he's gonna eat me." I believe he's supposed to be one of the stranger D&D creatures (a sort of stalagmite that eats the rare creature to walk into a cave- sort of like a carnivorous plant, except larger, deadlier, and living in environment that doesn't have plentiful creatures to support it. Naturally, we had to incorporate it into our Mouslings game, and I found this encounter was my favorite moment as a GM. - Mouslings are at sea GM:
  18. 02313 and 02320 Treasure Hoard 1 and 2 by Bob Olley
  19. Today's update shows off an "Oldhammer" Warhammer Goblin Unit made up of 2nd-3rd Edition models, almost entirely sculpted by Kev Adams back in the day and based on Rounds and turned into a KoW regiment by virtue of some blu-tac and a movement tray. These figures have been painted over quite a few years, with many painted 5-10+ years ago, a couple last year, and the last stragglers done in the last few weeks as part of my "finish those bloody things" drive. I'll show them off in threes to start with. The command group of the unit (not that these things matter in the new edition of KoW, bu
  20. My take on the Brass Bull. He seemed to cry out for a little Verdigris, so he got some. Inert for years, an adventuring party stumbles upon him, his eyes begin to glow as he detects movement nearby. The overgrown base was sculpted with milliput, I then added various flock, dried tea, Static grasses, and tufts. As always comments and criticisms welcome.
  21. With my shelf of shame needing some new residential zoning, I have decided to tackle a few unfinished projects and actually complete them. 2013 was the year of the dragons...nope, didn't finish. 2014 was the year of the giants...nope, didn't finish. Oh gloom, despair, and agony on me! With that out of my system, first off the shelf is Blacksting. I started working on him maybe five years ago? Here is his current state: I believe he was the first figure I ever gap filled with green stuff. He has taken at least one dive off the shelf of shame, undoubtedly trying to fly onto my work
  22. Nah, it's just Nord Kegbreaker, by Bob Olley. A great sculpt that's going to make a nice marker at the D&D table for my Dwarven cleric and brewer, Kaglin Busystone. Same-ol' thing for me, painting this, except I did switch palettes to one of the "egg-carton" ones, as I childishly call them. But that did let me really water my (crappy craft) paint down more than usual. Trying to smooth out my application of the paint. And then this picture, not-good, because I was trying to get the coloring on the cap to show in a photo which I otherwise wasn't having any luck at all
  23. I fiiiinally got around to painting my Balan Ironbreaker after having him on my desk for months. I'm so in love with this sculpt. Don't quite get the tongue; but I so love this sculpt. I was really happy with his hair. I got some brown mixed in with a wash, and it was layered brown/gray/white pretty nicely (for me), but it didn't want to show like I wanted in the photos, I think. I'll be honest and say I think this is some of my best work so far, though there's a lot on which I'd like to improve. Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism are most welcome.
  24. Finally did some work, last week, when the wifey left town. A trio of Bones orcs for your viewing [dis]pleasure: Nothing groundbreaking, obviously, but some new stuff for me. I lined them up and painted the three all at once. One to the next to the next with each bit of paint. The only real difference I went for with each was the washing--I used, entirely as an experiment, an orange, green, and red (Citadel's, whatever their silly names are), as they sit in the photos. And followed with Reaper's brown afterward. It was an experience, I guess, if nothing else. I didn't kill mysel
  25. So here is the third of my Ral Partha dwarves to complete my trilogy. It seems like they took forever to finish, but now at least they're done! I don't know why I've been having such issues with my front shots, but I don't like the lighting on the one showing his face, I might try to play around either with the photo or retake it. In the meantime, the back shot came out okay I think.. So I have all my partially done things that have been sitting around on my desk since my dragon complete, so now it's time to decide what to work on next. Oh, choices.....
