My Ogre Chieftain

Recommended Posts

This was supposed to be done as part of the community ogre thread, but paining time has been scarce and took me 4 months to get it done. :down:

Working with bones has been interesting. This is my first mini since I stopped painting 6-7 years ago, and had to adjust what few things remembered to the bones. Overall, I'm happy with how it turned out. I've been following the forum since the KS, and it's been incredibly useful, so thanks to all!

 

Comment, criticisms, etc are welcome!

Wow, I like this badboy with grey-greenish-blueish skin (what color is it?). With those white, nonhuman eyes it makes him look truly monstrous; nice! Love the beard too!

I would apply some kind of wash to the fur on his butt (that sounded much worse than I meant it); something to darken it a bit and bring out the texture (looks like you did this to the front). The shoulder-fur could benefit from a little wash too at the same time I think.

I second the skin/beard colors. They look great.

 

Nice job on those straps too. I can't get a clean line like that to save my life.

Thanks! The skin is RMS troll shadow progressively highlighted with RMS Rainy Gray. The bluish tint is a camera effect, it's actually more greenish-gray. The beard is Masonry Gray and Stone Gray from the Warpaints line by Nemo/Stratelibri (old Italian publisher that went bankrupt years ago).

 

The fur is the Palomino Gold triad. It looks a bit darker in reality, but yes it would need some more wash. But after 4 months of this, I wanted to move to something else. ::):

Could benefit from some shading, but it's an awesome return to the hobby! I really like the skin tone and the hammered look of the belly armor.

Thanks. The belly armor is Citadel Brazen Brass, applied somewhat thick and uneven, washed with Citadel Brown Wash. These are the old Citadel paints, with the soft plastic hexagonal jars.

 

Originally it had more shading, but when I applied the sealer (testors dullcote) it made it look more even in color. I think I might have sprayed too near to the mini, or I did not wait long enough between cotes.

Very nice and different take on the chieftain. I cannot add much to the comments of others, so welcome back to painting and I look forward to seeing more.

That is a TRIUMPHAL RETURN to the craft...WELCOME BACK! The skin tones & the color choices in general are TERRIFIC...I like the effect you achieved on the shoulder & abdominal armor. VERY WELL DONE!

I really love your color choices. Very bold and a lot of fun! My only suggestion would be to make up a brown wash and run it over his skin, furs, and leathery bits. Aside from that the gem looks really nice, the beard is exquisite, and I don't have a clue what colors you used to make that cuff, but I want the recipe ::D:

It's the woodstain-shield-driftwood brown triad. I like it a lot, in hand the woodstain is much deeper that what it looks like on the online store. ::):

I really like the skintone. It makes him look really menicing. The color of the beard complements the skintone as well. I also like what you did with the gutplate, and the bright furs serve as a good contrast to the dusky skin. As others have mentioned I would like abit more shade on the backfur.

Shadow ogre, very nice!

 

You should post him over in the communal Ogre painting thread, anyway. ^_^ It's not like there was a time limit on it!

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
