Hi, Here is a recent work, part of my still enrolling army.

It was really nice painting this model form Jason Wiebe.

I wanted my Wereshark to look like Razig’s mercenary Karkarius.

 

So the octopus had to be removed from the hand of the original model.

And, be replaced by a more convincing weapon…

The anchor and a chain were taken from a Razig Weapons Pack.

 

A tiger shark picture inspired me for the skin pattern.

The idea for the base was borrow from my previous attempt at sculpting waves.

Different tomes of blue, greens and yellow were used to color the water.

 

I hope you’ll like it.

Nice job! Love the anchor in his hand and the base. I like the pattern, though the black stripes look kinda flat to me. The rest of him is shaded and highlighted well, and then the stripes look...well...painted on, without much depth.

I agree with Jen. I like the stripes, but some highlights would help to give them more depth.

 

I really like the base, can you tell us a little about how you did that? I'm about ready to just sit down and work on scupting and painting up some bases to practice and prep for some minis. ;) I'm just so intrigued by them for some reason.

I will try to fix the strips pattern by adding a light grey/green highlight.

 

For the waves I folded some green stuff strips and applied them to the base.

A simple craft knife and some water were used to sculpt but a ball point stick would have helped.

This is a great looking piece of work from top to bottom. Custom basing is something I'd love to get into. I think you could have used a little more shading between his muscle grooves and the highest lit points of his muscles but that's mostly just nitpicking a great piece. As for the stripes, I definitely agree that some gentle highlighting on them would improve the piece! Please keep more of these coming!!!

      I had fun painting this one. The base coat is just a couple of coats of Panzer grey primer from Vallejo, which came out with quite a nice gloss finish. 
       
      The base is just my usual modelling paste, paint, and gloss mod podge.

      I got a skeleton as part of a job lot of Tomb Kings soldiers. It was neatly painted but missing an arm. I used the chain and cutlass from the Reaper Razig weapons sprue, and made a hat out of green stuff. The missing left arm is from the Frostgrave cultists sprue.
       
      I'm no sculptor but the hat was really easy. I just followed a YouTube video. The base was again just modelling paste for sand, then mod podge for the water.

      Have finished off these skeleton pirates. They are all Reaper minis from the Razig faction in the Warlord line. 
       
      Really enjoyed painting these. I worked up from a cream paint spray and a sepia wash. Lots of brighter but desaturated colours for the cloth and lots of rust and brass tones for the metal. The bases are resin, from a company called MVP. I used a sepia wash again at the end of the process and then an all over drybrush with beige. 
       
      The plan is to pit these against the orc pirates I have been working on. I also have some Freebooter Fate minis and some dwarf and halfling pirates from elsewhere. Plus a load of Reaper pirates. Aaaargh.

      Am cracking on with some opposition to my orc pirates. These are the Razig warlord pirate minis. The bases are resin (they are meant to depict trenches but think they will work here). Have sprayed them all with Army Painter skeleton bone. Then a sepia ink wash all over for definition and a process of going through and colouring in. Am going to add a cannon as well. Am going for quite a colourful scheme, that will be muted by the pre shading and then dusted up with an all over drybrush of off white.
