This is a Bones figure I painted in about 2 hours for a D&D character. My goal was to get a decent-looking job done, and that's it. Nothing special.

 

It is marketed in the Reaper Kickstarter as a "new Bones" figure. It looks just like Kellen, Nobleman Adventurer, but with a hood. I couldn't find an SKU for this exact figure, though, since it's not available yet.

Sure!

 

When I speed-paint, I start by base-coating the entire mini. I use the highest highlight color of each section for this step. Then I shade the entire mini quickly with very thin navy blue. Next I shade each section with a semi-dark midtone. For the sleeves I used hunter green. For the leather and pants I used brown liner. For the cloak, black. If the area needs blending, I'll use a midtone for that. On this figure, that was really just the cloak, where I wet-blended layers of gray and black until it looked pretty good. Then I added a spot of gry to the armor studs and painted the swords. The skin and eyes were last, and I painted them how I usually do, just stopping when they looked decent, instead of working on them until they were really good (good for me).

He looks really good for a 2hr job - which is the most I want to be spending on mini's unless it's a special one for some reason, so thanks heaps for the process involved!

 

 

*basecoat with the lightest highlight and shade*

 

Man it's so simple and yet I've always started with the darker colours regardless and then wonder why my mini's are all so dark.

 

It's at times like these that I despair of ever even becoming an average painter ;p

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      My waste paint receptacle for my ogre squad. Nothing special or exciting but he's done too.
      probably his best side here.

      This side no so much. I don't know think he translated into bones as well as some of the others like the ogres. But then, he's just a mook so who cares. 

       
      Oops! Looks like I hurt his feelings. He'll feel better when he's amongst his metal brethren. He has a much better base than they do.

      A dumpster.  I started painting it as part of Aaron Lovejoy's blending class.  Then had a ton of fun weathering it.

      after doing the bugbears I figured why not try something a little bigger, how about some ogre's, unfortunately most of the ogre's were sold out in the reaper store and ended up getting this piece which at the time didn't know I already had.
