So, as of... two days ago... I have my Reaper Bones III pledge in hand. Rather than buy single figures, however, this time I bought swarms of *multiple* mook monsters - lots of giants, tauren, ect - and have committed myself to getting them all painted to tabletop in the next month or two. I've made a bold first step in that direction with the completion of these crazy kids! I got three packs of the yetis, since they come up in Against the Giants (the main campaign I was playing at the time of the kickstarter) a lot, and also since they were awesome sculpts done cheap. I wanted enough for a decent band for AtG or a random encounter, but also some to paint as bigfoots, since the tribal clothing they had seemed to work for either. I decided to give these guys a shot as a speedpaint, and see where that got me. I expect most of these will end up as speedpaints; there's an aweful lot of them. So, first: Proof of Completion on the Yeti warband: \ Real blurry, yeah. They weren't obliging me as a group; my old foe Focusmort come back to haunt me, perhaps. There we go. A little more obliging, on there own. So, to paint these up, I basecoated with Ultramarine Blue straight onto the plastic, then drybrushed on Linen White. Deadrose Red in the mouths, mixed with the white around the eyesockets, with Walnut brown for the eyes. Quick and easy - all eight took a bit under 4 hours, with the basecoating done all in one night, drybrushing before work, and then picking out details after. Nothing too fancy, but I'm happy with them, and my other players thought they looked amazing. They have low standards, but they're also the only ones I need to impress, so... Next up, the Bigfoots! These I'm much more excited about. Group shot: Based Walnut Brown, drybrushed Ruddy Leather; mouth is one of the lighter reds, and teeth and eyes are Linen White over ultramarine. These look rocking - they really work as bigfoots. All in all, I'm thrilled with these for 5 hours work. Gotta base them somehow though... And since we haven't all seen them: the sculpts for these are amazing - heavy and substantial in all the right ways. Enough diversity to make 2-3 sets not look like clones, with great accents. Totally worth getting for forest monsters if you don't do a arctic setting, and they'd probably make a neat swamp monster too... Next up... probably some taurs.
These are some pictures of a Yeti/sasquatch/bigfoot/abonimable snowman that I painted for SamuraiJack in the 2015 Secret Sophie Winter Exchange. I'm very proud of how he turned out. And, though you can't see it, both his eyes are looking in the same direction (!) which absolutely thrilled me. Looking at it now, I could have pushed the contrast on the fur even further, but I was happy with how he looked and decided that he was a perfectly recognizable sasquatch. So there he is! Hope you like the paint.
