    77152 Marsh Troll Bones 1

    Not sure if this guy was core, or an add-on. I did get rather a lot of add-ons. This here is, again, a fairly fast job designed to get it fairly nicely done. I don't actually game much, but this might be considered "tabletop". As for most of my paint jobs, this has drybrushing, layering, wet blending, "Les Wash Recipe Without the Ink" washes, and Army Painter Ink washes. And of course some colour mixing on the brush... because I paint like Derek Schubert... in that I mix colours on the brush ;) Meet Driftwood Fishskinner. Driftwood is really the name of his club, made from one water-bleached, water-stained trunk and the rusty nails out of sunken riverboats. Fishskinner is the name the troll here got when he started wearing a carp-hide as a loin cloth. Recently, given his somewhat successful reign of terror along Dead Man's Bend - one of nine stretches of channel so named, where the river winds slowly through the marsh and trade-boats often come to grief - he has sought a more rightly terrifying name, hence the fresh-this-week wolf skin. Everyone still calls him Fish-Skinner. It's not fair.
  2. I found this guy in the clearance bin at my FLGS. When I started painting him, I decided he was more Ogre like than Troll for my campaigns. And with the thorny back he must be some kind of demon/devil spawned version so I went red-skinned. The skin is patchy in places with a ruddy orange. And I decided on the eye style after watching an episode of FaceOff on Syfy. He's painted tabletop level IMO and using washes over solids with some highlighting. I used a micro pen to create some veining effects on his skin. The wood club has been painted to resemble a piece of a stalactite/stalagmite to keep the cave feeling of the base. The figure is covered in a matte varnish for toughness. I just finally picked up a can of Dullcote to bring the shine back down. I am comfortable with the piece as is for the players to be afraid of but C&C is always welcome and will be applied going forward. And yes, I know, better pics will help. I have a camera coming for Christmas. To see additional photos (like a WIP) check out either the Facebook Album or Google+ Post.

    02851 Hill Troll

    Finally got some painting done this weekend and finished up this fellow. I was initially going to go with something a bit more human looking, where he was going to have Mediterranean skin tones, so I started off with dusky skin. About partway through, I decided to go with a more rocky looking appearance, so I shaded with some agrax earthshade. Since I was making him look more like rock and soil, I thought grass for body hair might be an interesting choice. It doesn't look so great here, but the effect's a bit better in person. The rocky protrusions were based with walnut brown, then shaded up with grey rock and finally to rainy gray as the highlight, done with successive drybrushes. The metals were all done with vallejo model colors, with some of the new technicals from Games Workshop. The blue on the arm shield is nihilakh oxide. Took a bit to get it down to an effect that was noticeable, but not too strong. Fun guy to get painted up. My players have already had their fun with him once, and I expect to find more uses as time goes on.

    Aard's Adventures in Painting!

    Woo! So, I finally got a camera, and I thought I'd upload some of my painted minis~ I'm gonna upload them in the order I did them, so I'll do the "Unicorn" first! Now, all of my mini's are painted in Marie's Artist's Acrylics - I get mine for 5$/box at Ocean State Job Lot. My paint brushes are these - they're cheap, they're tiny, and they move paint from the palette to the mini, which is all I really ask for in a brush. They last okay; I need to order new ones, and even 15 brushes don't last long, so I usually order 2-3 sets at a time - with free shipping, spending 5 or 6 dollars isn't that big a deal for 40-50 brushes, but they take up to 2 months to get here, a bit of a wait. Now, onto my figures! I've never painted minis before these - initially, I was looking for cheap minis for D&D on amazon, prepaints and such, and someone in the comments mentioned Reaper; I visited here, dropped a hundred bucks on some minis, and now I'm 800$ in the hole for KSII. Never gonna play D&D without minis again... they'll make my mats so much livelier. And of course, now I want to get into Hirst... but that's a matter for another thread! So I got my minis, and I was very happy. The first I decided to paint was a unicorn - my sister wanted to see a fire unicorn, and I thought, "I can do that!" So I did! HELLO, FRIENDS! Hello, unicorn! I started this one by basecoating... black, I think. Then I did the mane and tail; white, then yellow, followed by drybrushed red and orange, and with a dryer sort of drybrushing of black after. Then I made grey, and I added a little blue & brown - just the tiniest bit - and used that for the body. A slightly darker shade added the collarbone and the leg's shadow, and then I reblacked the hooves, eyes, teeth and horn... All in all, I think this one came out great! I plan to base it when the KSII bases get here; I want to do it rearing on a brownstone cliff in scrublands - something with a deep, dark red color, to give it a lot of contrast and make the mane pop! Here are some other pictures: The blur! THE BLUR! This picture shows off the mane really well, I think. The shading on the stomach, too. Next up: THE GRYPHON!

    Troll brothers in the swamp

    This is two of the bones cave troll. I reposed one of them, removed some warts and moved some other warts around. Took about 5 hours total for painting and basing. Very fun minis too paint!

    77004: Bones Cave Troll

    This guy, like the Purple Worms I shared recently, was a Bones figure I picked up before the Kickstarter campaign who spent most of the last year part-painted until I finally finished him properly more recently. The “learning experience” with this guy was to practice blending from unnatural skin tones (ie, the green) to more natural ones (the flesh). I saw some fine work done in this manner on Citadel Dragon Ogres many years ago, and it’s also been used to some extent on the Games Workshop LotR trolls – which is one of the places this guy can do duty, along with Pathfinder and even wargames like Warhammer and Kings of War. The paint was originally a bit nicer, but it got severely messed up (in my opinion) when I hit the finished model with Army Painter’s spray (matt!) varnish. The model got a nasty shine, some sandy “frosting” on his limbs, and it also attracted a bunch of tiny little hairs. I’ve gone over it with paint-on Vallejo, but it’s still not quite right. The base used the same techniques as listed previously for the golem, but not as successful, and being a cheap bones model I’d prefer to buy another one and do it again then spend the time to rework the whole base – ie “good enough”. His claws are badly defined, and the facial details are a bit soft and sloppy – picking out the eyes was not easy. Blending the pustulent and infected looking boils into his skin was fun as always, but despite my misgivings about the casting of the figure overall and especially some specific parts of the model (claws, face) – and even the messed up finish thanks to the Spray and my sub-par job on the base, I find it to be another successful practice model. Good enough for Roleplaying and certainly tabletop quality for wargaming.

    Bones Troll - A simple paint job

    A simple troll-lo-ró-lo-ró! How can you not love trolls? This is a Bones one. Painting it was like this: dark green and each addicional layer with a little more yellow. Fast and fun.

    Cave Troll Champion (02488)

    This guy was mostly done, but I got the base finished off this weekend. And here he is with his bendy friend: It's a bit hard to get the camera to focus on both of them very well. I've got two more Bones trolls to paint up, so if you've got any C&C then let me have it!
  9. This one was really quick to paint, done in a couple of hours all together last night. Look at the back -someone has spilled water on this one. Note to self: do not feed it after midnight! Black undercoat, I did the skin a dark blue and drybrushed with dark purple several shades up to pinkish purple, ditto blues on the lower ams, hands and feet. Some reds and greens here and there for effect, the boils (or whatever they are meant to be) was done in dark red followed by a dirty green and a too thin yellow (that turned green) and a too thick yellow (that was too much for the effect I wanted). Loincloth in dirty grey and brownish yellow, given a wash of Army Painter Soft Tone ink, lightened with khaki and a sickly skin tone. Claws and eyes in dirty grey and yellow with green ink for that venomous look. I think this figure would be better without the massive boils on it’s back.

    carrion crown pc's

    So my Wednesday night pathfinder group has a father daughter combo and recently the daughter who was playing our inquistior tank stopped showing up and that left my mage tanking (granted he's got 25 ac, one hands a bastard sword and casts with the other and is medium armor) so I talked to my friend who was running the game and pitched the idea of a cleric tank and frankly he loved it (this adventure path is very undead heavy) and I decided on a variant tifling (+2con +2wis prehensile tail, spelllike ability pyromancy and dr2/coldiron) cleric with healing/fire domains. so this is my First pathfinder cleric and Holy crap the healing domain 0.o at lev 6 all cure spells are empowered so +50% to your total healing per spell, the fire domain is fun, granted power is throwing firebolts for something like 1d8+half casterlevel max 5 and access to things like produce flame fireballl.... a cleric throwing fireballs... yea i'm ok with that. With the Main idea being a Tank I originally went with the idea of full plate and a tower shield but as I was getting the character on paper It just didn't work so well, that -2 to attack rolls Hurts, going to talk to the gm about house rulling this with maybe a feet or something. So onto the part you guys are going to be interested in. the obligatory tilfling in fullplate: Vaeloth, Hellborn Paladin, I ended up grabbing a warhammer on the character but ehh small detail, I almost always use swords so I figured I would be different. so his shield is going to come off, and the tower shield will be attached to his arm, without opening the packages and playing with them I'm suspecting the only way to do is to have the shield attached lengthwise on his arm which isn't idea but. the tower shield, Pavise As you can see from this shot the shield is going to need a lot of trimming before I will be able to mount it on the miniature. Now for the fun part, my mage killed and cast animate dead on an advanced troll and created an advanced bloody troll skeleton, think the red skeletons from castlevainia they put themselfs back together after a bit. While reaper does have a Undead troll I really didn't care for it, I planning on doing a purple base coat and then light coat of green to give it a rather nasty look, I will have to fiddle with a bit i'm sure. While I'm at it I'm considering Repainting my tengu.

    02542: Bulgoth, Troll King

    Here's my latest creation. The base was fashioned using some plaster moulds and green stuff to build up the cavern like appearance. Among this piece, as with most of my pieces are some new additions to my repertoire to include sculpting mushrooms from green stuff and adding a rusted appearance to a weapon. I almost did the rusting effect to the Goat Demon I finished recently, but I was so pleased with the scythe I couldn't do it. I felt like a troll king deserved a cool 'scene' to go along with the fact that he is a king. I wish the sculpt had a bone necklace or something cool and 'trophy-like' on the sculpt instead of the collar that he has. I also am a fan of older edition trolls, wherein the eye socks are mostly hollowed out (almost undead-like). I hope you like!

    Stonehaven Troll =(

    So, aside from the hope that they'll add the troll to the gnome kickstarter, does anyone know where I can get this awesome troll? He's really quite impressive, and if I had known about kickstarter in July, I would have gotten in on this, but alas, I did not.

    77004: Bones Cave Troll

    I painted this guy up for my DnD campeign. i have a couple of things i need to touch up(toenails are missing paint, back bottom boil flowed over when doing the wet blending, and for some reason i Dont think you can tell from the pictures, his loin cloth is super shiny. needless to say this brought about many a cod piece/loin cloth joke at my gaming table. But since they were all new players it took them a while to figure out how to get the troll to stop coming back from being mostly dead. C&C welcome!

    Bones - Ogre & Troll

    These two miniatures were speed painted, about 30 minutes total brush time each, then simply glued to a 50mm base and flocked. Its not awesome work, but its fast and effective enough on the game table.
