  1. A while ago I came to the realization I needed an orangutan in academic robes and mortarboard, and would you believe this isn't something every mini company already does?! So I decided to take matters into my own hands, after reading through several sculpting threads and noting good advice from sculpting powerhouses. Professor Pongo here was intended to work as a circus performer, but he also works as a stand-in for Futurama's Dr. Banjo, or Pratchett's Librarian. Here's the WIP thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84661-doctor-banjo-or-even-further-hubris/ The guy isn't perfect--no plan survives contact with the enemy, in this case my own fumble-fingeredness--but I'm pretty satisfied! "Mmmyes, so we can see that while the OVERALL equation for combustion of carbohydrates is very simple--C6H12O6 and 6 O2 yielding 6 H2O and 6 CO2--the chemistry of Man's Red Fire is much more complex than had previously been believed!" "...but while daVinci is justly famed for his sketch of the Vitruvian Man, the original description of human proportions in the Golden Ratio (which can be approximated by dividing the n-th term of the Fibonacci sequence by the (n-1)th, for large values of n [OR if we subtract one from the square root of 5 and halve the result] ), comes from a treatise of the human Roman architect Vitruvius. Of course for the other apes, other irrational numbers must be substituted, as follows..." "...Naturally, the implications of Darwinian theory for the doctrine of the transcendent Platonic Forms are severe--a fact not lost on Nietszche, who was well-versed in Greek literature as well as philosophy." "...though it would be imprudent in the extreme to conflate the Chthonic with the Dionysiac, though both are opposed to the Apollonian. Perhaps no better example can be found than that of Orpheus, who faced both and was undone by both, but in remarkably different ways. The figure of Eurydice is key in understanding this..." "..and so to conclude, ladies and gentlemen, THAT is why the banana, while delectable, does not compare to the humble guava in terms of vitamin-richness. Thank you for your attention." He's hanging from one arm and can be made to depend from other branches... or from terrain pieces if need be. Here he is in the Miskatonic Faculty Lounge. Uplifted apes are pulp as heck and I love them.
  2. Thread title pretty much sums it up. This is Callus the Renegade from Black Orc’s Hundred Kingdoms, sculpted by Jason Wiebe: There is is a lot going on here, from chain, scale, and plate to all the spangly bits and Things on Belts. Tried to add some variety of color where possible. Not sure what actual colors were worn by Roman soldiers, but red is popular among cosplayers according to Google. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t purple at least. Turns out Dark Elf Skin is a pretty good approximation of actual gorilla flesh. It also seems that brown is not a popular color for actual gorilla fur, but whatever. I was unsure just what that thing in his left hand is, so I imagined it as some sort of monkey-headed scepter, and painted it up in Dragon Copper and Antique Gold. Mostly as an excuse to try out some GW verdigris. I probably miffed the placement, but it’s a neat effect. Very much a “nasty old penny” look. Did I mention this guy is big? Here he is alongside Miss Forscale the Strumpet: Comments and critiques appreciated!

    Kev!'s 77260: Ape Demon

    Howdy, Here is the Ape Demon I did a while back... Kev!
  4. For a while I had been pondering what figure to use for the White Gorilla creature from the Frostgrave rules. Then one day, while looking for something else, I spotted the Ape Demon figure from the Bones II Lesser Demons set, and I thought, "Why not?" Maybe the White Gorillas of Frostgrave are the descendants of some bizarre experiment of a misguided wizard long ago who thought it would be a good idea to cross a bat with a gorilla. (Maybe so he could quickly run errands for him through the crowded city. That's why he has the one big ear; (so he can hear his master call him home), and the big hands so he can carry all the grocery shopping!) Over the centuries the wings have become flightless, but they still make the creature look fearsome. :) I really like how he turned out. And I think he fills the role of descendant of bizarre wizard's experiment just as well as he did as his intended use as a demon! :) Step by step painting article on my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2016/09/ape-demon-bones-ii-figure.html

    77260: Ape Demon (Bones Version)

    Just some simple dry brushed Ape Demons. Metal washers used as the bases with a little sand glued to them, painted and dry brushed as well.

    80001: Ape-X

    Attempting to adopt Buglips' Zen of Bones approach. I only removed the most offensive mold lines. I intended this to be for the KruleBear cub's 3rd Birthday. I was essentially done by the date, but procrastinated the final details for a couple months. This was the first mini I used aggressive Zenithal priming on and it saved me a lot of time. I call this a Toy Box level paint job or tabletop. http://www.coolminiornot.com/394924

    FitzBones - 80001: Ape-X

    This is another Bones miniature designed by Jason Wiebe — 80001: Ape-X. I think that a gorilla's skin would tend to be blacker than this, but that made it very monochromatic, so I browned it up a bit. And here it is again, photographed from every angle, just in case you really need to know what it would look like from a rear three-quarter view.

    Lidless Eye Hobbies: Let's Get Frosty!

    I'm trying to get more monsters available for the random encounters in Frostgrave. First off is a Frost Giant, converted from the Pathfinder Battles: Dungeons Deep Frost Giant. She wasn't directly intended for Frostgrave, I was going to convert her to match the Frost Giant Jarl from "Giants Revisited"...then realized I misremembered the art, and she already WAS based off that piece. So she got a heavy infantry makeover:
  9. I feel like he isn't very interesting. Any suggestions on how I could add interest for next time?

    80001: Ape-X in white

    I am painting up my bones Ape-X based on inspiration from this picture http://www.deviantart.com/art/White-Gorilla-270784101 and I want to try NMM on him as well. I do have the L2PK3 on NMM, but I have only read the instructions. Since there is only a little metal on this figure, I can take my time to get it right. So far I have only done base coats. The armor hand will be a red metal and the gun a blue metal and the other metal parts chrome. Depending on how this goes, I might do OSL on the cyber eye as well.
  11. This is one funky monkey. My first and natural instinct was to paint him with a standard black leather jacket, but I thought I'd give him a bit of a James Dean look with the red jacket and jeans. The rest really just fell together nicely. Big risk with this guy was the shades - I hummed and hahhed about doing black shades or mirror shades, but my better half convinced me that I should be trying to grow my skills and I went for it. I wouldn't say it came out exactly perfect, or that it was necessarily the right mini to do it on, but I'm happy with it.
  12. Last one done for the weekend! Yes, that is a banana in his pocket. He's probably still happy to see you, though. I'm happy with how all the colours turned out on him, but he's leaning slightly forward on his base so it's a bit tricky to get a good photo angle.
