77015: Bugbear Warrior

Recommended Posts

Very nice, basing included. I echo Buglips comment: the skin looks great. If I had to make one suggestion it would be the hair on his head and back looks a little flat; maybe a slight drybrushing is in order?

 

Do you mind sharing what materials/process you use for the grass on the base? I'm sort of stuck in a rut with rocks and sand, and little tufts of bushes (like what you have on the left in the first picture). I'm not sure how to get a good grassy field effect. Is that just static grass, or something else too?

Oooh I do like the way you've done this model. That skin tone and it's highlights are most excellent. He really pops and you've based him so very well.

So the base is a GF9 bulk 40mm round. I super glued the bugbear to the base and then used Golden Coarse Pumice Gel over the entire base and covered up the integral base the bugbear was on. I then painted the base using VMC (Vallejo Model Color) US Tan Earth and then started adding VMC Iraqi Sand to drybrush over it. I then apply unthinned white glue in patches and then put Woodland Scenics Earth Blend flock dowon top and blow off the excess. I then apply Woodland Scenics Light Green Static Grass on the patches of flock before the glue has time to dry. Let it sit for a minute dump off the excess, turn the base upside down and thump it to get the grass to stick up. Then I add the foliage clumps and I'm done.

Slashhamster is correct. More highlighting on the hair/fur parts. The skin is nicely shaded and highlighted. Well done there.

If I'm right, I think the base is sand, static grass, and some green flocking. :D

Thanks for the details! Very similar process to what I use; I'm just missing the turf blend and static grass. I have some turf but it's way to...turf-like (looks like an artificial football field). I'll see if I can find what you're using; I don't recall if my local Hobby Lobby carries it.

He looks fantastic! Thanks for the run-down on how you did the base, it looks fantastic and matches the mini so well. The leather on this mini is painted so well! Love the different shades of brown too. Very nice.

I just have to pop in and mention that the skin is really a standout. I see this model painted pretty basic a lot of the times, but this one is just awe to the some, awesome.

      Hi guys and gals, 
       
      So just painted these two, which were pretty simple jobs being they didn't have too many things hanging off of them.  These are bugbears sculpted by Tom Meier, back in 1983.  I had always thought these were odd kind of figures, because my other concept of bugbears at the time were the Monster Manual version as well as the two Grenadier bugbears that were available at the time.  One of my future projects is to paint the Grenadier bugbears as well, plus some more recent Partha bugbears and I think I have somewhere the female bugbear by Reaper that I'd like to paint up.
       
      Anyhoos, these guys have these huge eyes that I really didn't know what to do with.  I thought of one color and not put in any pupils, but then changed my mind.  Hopefully green eyes look okay.  
       

      Anyhoos, enjoy!

      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....
