The Great Community Ogre Adventure (official WIP thread)

Recommended Posts

I think I'm pretty much done, just have to paint the base. It's got a layer of watered-down white glue drying on it now, holding down all the dirt and stuff I put on there. Pretty pleased with how the Bones worked out. Holds paint really well, once it's on there.

So I finally got to work on this ogre chieftan. He was looking a bit unhappy so i gave him a pointy hat and a christmassy type bag to carry into town. Somewhere in the forums under the fiction, poetry, ect. there is a holiday campaign set forth by Bali. I was going to use this guy as a stand in for some more fun in the campaign.

I used apple barrel colors from wal-mart. Blue for the skin, and dark red for the cloth, leather, and wood.

The leather has all been done.

 

I went over it all in Scorched Brown first followed by a layer of Scorched Brown and Dark Flesh.

I then had three layers of highlights, Dark Flesh, Dark Flesh and Skrag Brown and finally Skrag Brown,

All the leather was then washed with Chestnut Brown

Finally I mixed togher Dark Brown, Skrag Brown, Fortress Grey, Dark Angels Green and Nurgling Green until I got the colour I wanted (A greyish greeny brown obviously) and stippled on to make the leather look a bit old and worn. The brush I used is a very old 3/0 that I'd cut the bristles off of so there's only about a millimetre left.

Since nobody seems to bother with Rule #2 of the OP, and since this thread is updating slower than originally anticipated, then people might as well put their WIP-related comments in here. I'll consider this one of those kinks we planned to work out, and clearly the options are to either ask for special moderation to move posts (which I'd rather not do) or just let people follow their instincts and post comments directly in here.

 

But no chit chat, keep it on topic. If it turns out to be a problem (drowning out people posting pictures) then I'll ask to have non-WIP-participant posts moved to the other thread.

All done! This was fun! Now I have to move on to my huge pile of Pathfinder minis that I need to get through soon. Sigh.

I finished all of the base colors for the ogre. his loin clothing, shoulder pad, and facial hairs being most prominent.

Then later on went back to do some drybrushing. Either I am being a little too rough with the drybrushing or the bones does not like apple barrel paints as I had to re-apply some of the earlier paint. It seemed that the drybrushing I normally use on metal models tends to take back some of the paint and starts to show the unpainted white of the basic bones model. minor issues though.

Thanks and enjoy. maybe next time I will have all of the initial drybrushing done and will be ready for the second level of drybrushing.

Today I managed to:

  1. get him out of the package.
  2. attempt to remove some of the mold lines.
  3. prime over where I attempted to remove some of the mold lines
  4. reorganize my craft desk- changing it from primarily a beading desk to a painting desk. (though I still need it to be a beading desk)
  5. rewire my work lamp.

Ya'll don't want to see all those steps do you?? If so I'll have to make step #6 be "locate my camera from camping this past weekend" :down:

It might not look like a lot's changed, but a lot of work's been done. Most of it clean-up. I added some armor gray into his beard, and I might do the same for his eyebrows. I gave his hairy body bits a very thin wash of dragon black, and also did the same for his nails to grime them up a little before I paint them. Probably use caucasian for that, not sure. I gave his club a wash of coat d'arms brown ink, thinned, in preparation for highlights. I'll have to repeat this for the very top of the club when I do that part dead last.

 

His bandages got a highlight of reaper ivory. Doesn't show so well in the pic, but it's there and it's a good blend of highlight + grime, better than my original linen white plan. He's got a nice rosy nipple now, 50/50 antique rose and dark highlight. The teeth also got a highlight of ivory, and this will be topped off with linen white or white leather later.

 

The next major step will be his pouch, satchel, and belts. After that it's highlight the blues, paint the gem (I do like the red, after all), touch-ups and he's ready to go to battle.

>< not as happy as I can be with the progress made. The brown seems to all be the same color in the photo :(

Edited: Forgot to attach photo. My blondness and lack of sleep are showing well this morning.

      I was inspired by limey72  work doing NMM Gold on the enlarged Dwarf over in Works in Progress. I wanted to do a brass like robot or construct, so I pulled out this Golem. I also wanted to try some AK weather effect acrylic pencils I have had for a time. I think it ended with too much brown and ended up wood looking. But it has grown on me, so I will finish up his base and call it done. Hope you like it.

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
       
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

       
      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.
       

       

       
      Full frontal metal shiny.
       

       
      And rotating around for those that want to look.
       
       
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.
       

       
      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I’m working on trying to get this big guy painted to tabletop standard by the time I have to use him at our next Pathfinder D&D session to represent the Roc King on Tilagos Island in the Demiplane of Last Resort, in the Age of Worms adventure path.

      Painted up these 8 unrelated barbarians as a clan for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Tried my hand at non-metallic metal again. This is the result. :)
