02386, Boris Mingla aka Bogorislav the Mad

Recommended Posts

Here is Bogorislav the Mad, my interpretation of Boris Mingla sculpted by Werner Klocke. I only added a toupee on this one. :;): Again, I mixed both NMM and real metallic paint to continue my exploration of this combination of techniques.


I hope you’ll like it. Comments and critiques are welcome.

Nice work! I like the red and gold combo, and his hair looks great (reminded me of a young Thulsa Doom perhaps). I think he looks great! I'm curious what gold you are using on him?


I've been playing with metallic paints too, I've seen some people using nmm technique with metals, like using reds or purples (regular non metallic colors, and color depends on the metal one's using with it of course) a little in the shadowed areas to accentuate the effect of light hitting a surface, or the shiny areas. I have yet to paint this way effectively, but when I've seen it done well on the forums or even better in person, it looks really awesome. Michael Proctor is very good at it, his course at Reapercon was great! I think it's a fine balance between flat color and shiny surface area, and layering very thinly. Also a very important thing from the class that I found was he said to have separate brushes and water pots for metallics and regular colors, so the metallic flakes don't accidently mix in and ruin the flat shadowed areas.

Yes he definitely looks like Thulsa Doom. Just realised that James Earl Jones as the same kind of trickster role in both Star Wars and Conan the Barbarian movies. When Darth Vader fights with Luke, he say «No, I am you father». And, when Thulsa Doom try to hypnotise Conan, he say «what will your world be without me. My son!». What a great actor/doubler, and what a great career.


Ok, I used Vallejo brass as base color. Then I applied two brown washes, followed by a light blue and a light red glaze and I finished with some brass highlights. The final highlights on the sword, axe and chain are pure metal medium color also from Vallejo. There is also silver mixed with the final red highlights on the armor.


I never had the chance to assist to any painting course, so I try different thing on my own and keep what looks nice. Thanks for sharing you experience on the technique, It brighten my day. It’s hard to find that kind of information on the Internet.

      Durgam Deepmug, one of several figures I picked at random to paint for table use during the early weeks of covid-19 lockdown.  I tried a little magical/ ice effect on his sword.

      Presenting Sir Shelly from Knightmare Games. Sometimes the path of Chaos offers great power, and sometimes you end up needing to stay constantly moist or you die.
      Really enjoyed painting this one, he's just so weird looking!
      Still can't paint gems though.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Presenting Angry Joe, the last of my Survivors from the Gigalion expansion from Kingdom Death. He believes the best defence against monsters is to wear a suit made of their skin.
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, Gorm armour is my favourite set despite all the little details, now I just need to paint the Gigalion itself.

      So here is one of two converted Kang, Half-Orcs (02514) I've done.  Pretty sure I posted the other one around here somewhere...maybe I'll try to dig it up later for a side-by-side. 
      Anyway, here goes:  
      Kang Half-Orc converted to carry a Reaper Bow in his left hand  and a battleaxe in his right (the plastic Bones 3 weapon sprues).  Also has a shield (a GW bit from a really old Brettonian knight) and a GW quiver (Mordheim / Empire free company).   Shield painted purple and yellow because I like color and I get bored painting "realistic" neutrals & darks & such.  As always, my mini photography skills are complete butt thanks in part to using a really cheap light box and a really cheap camera phone.  
      99% reaper paints:  Olive triad mixed with scholar flesh, pure black and white, woodland brown, ashen brown, white metal triad, various washes. 
      This mini actually has kind of a weird story.  
      This mini represents my character Zarkosh Bowyer in a short Wildemount campaign.  This campaign is being played 100% online thanks to COVID-19, so he is 100% unnecessary.  Same goes for another mini I painted (Duke Gerard in Bones and Metal) which was for a DIFFERENT 100% online campaign.  But that's only part of the backstory. 
      I actually BOUGHT this miniature back in like 2004.  I bought two of him - my friend & roommate and I decided to play Barbarian brothers from the same tribe.  I converted and painted mine to carry a war hammer and a shield.  My roommate never got around to doing anything with his, and so it went back in my "Someday" box.  

      For sixteen years. 

      Anyway, I finally got around to doing something with the mini - hopefully, Zarkosh does better in this campaign than the previous character incarnating the mini did in his!  
      May come back and tidy up some edges & half-tones, may not.  Don't know how much more time I want to give this one.  Probably won't get TONS better than it is now, so here we go.
