They look really good, but the bright blue weapons pull the eyes from the figure. Great contrast on the reds.

 

I agree, they look good but I had to force myself to look at the figure and away from the weapons.

For sure the blue color contrast with the red skin color, but then only magically enhanced weapons can damage Giant Skull Scarab exoskeleton. And, since these infernal Beetle are immune to fire, electrically charged ice crystals seemed to be a good option to me.

 

Just for the fun of it, I took some time to modify those two pictures just to see how the weapon could have look painted with an incandescent metal tone.

 

Personally, since that’s the hardest part to paint for me, I'm particularly happy about their eyes. I think the pink beard also add some fantasy.

      These were a fun little summer paint job.  I tried to show the mushrooms in their three stages of development, from young to mature.

      This is the bones version of 3761, and I think it has not made it into the store yet.  I painted it like a big orc, or like the title says, half-ogre/half-orc.  I don't normally paint blood, but this guy needed a little extra to emphasize how mean he is.

      This is Miguel Zavala's redesigned Umber Hulk, printed on my Mars Pro and painted with Vallejo acrylics.
       
      It's a monster I haven't used much, if at all, in my own campaign, but my favourite character of old, Sir Fnord the Pretty Neat died of them twice, both times by having his head ripped clean off.

      I've been slowly (very slowly) working my way through some of the larger non-humanoid figures in my collection.  This one took me about  a year to complete, mostly because of the wings. I haven't figured out how to do the translucent effect yet, but I'm getting closer.

      AKA: Sophie's mom.  This is a model that really needs to be made in metal.  It's just awful in plastic.  Anyway, she sat on my paint table a long time before inspiration broke through and I did the wings. The rest just took patience.
