I'll see what I can do about some better pics.

 

EDIT: It may take a day or two. I have to hit the photo booth at just the right time of day for it not to be washed out. I've only got one spot I can set it up in, and it gets backlit at certain times of day.

 

The base is a 30mm round-lipped Secret Weapon "Corpse Fields" I has left over from my Noh Empire.

Looking good on this guy. I like the fur and hooves especially.

 

His skin looks sort of reddish.  Is this just the lighting?  If he is actually red, then that's a pretty cool idea. I hope the horns are attached to his helmet.  Otherwise he's never going to be able to take it off.   Also, are you going to string the bow? (I just realized he's a lefty. he's holding the bow in his right hand).

Very nature Paint Job. I would like to see more on the base, it looks really interesting.

 

I'm not really a fan of demon style looking miniatures and what not but this guy looks really good. I would actually purchase and paint this one.

Okay, as promised better lighting and some follow up comments:

 

As you can see better in these photos, his skin is not red, it is indeed just the lighting I get at certain times of day:

His horns are also not black, but dark brown with a little black in the deepest shadows:

And some close ups of the base, as requested. It's actually about 3mm deep, from the top of the lip, I'd guess. It's still a little tough to see through the water effects, but I used the undead flesh triad on the corpse, some GW olives on the mossy bits, and a sample that looks remarkably like mud on the, well, muddy bits. All generously coated in the ubiquitous Argax Earthshade.

As far as the bow goes, I doubt I'll string it. My minis usually get well-used, and the less repair work I have to do, the happier I am. Not that I don't think he wouldn't look better with a strung bow, mind you. I'm just fairly certain that one of my players and/or children would decide he'd look better with a snapped bowstring. Repeatedly.

      This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out.  In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.

      How long has it been since I started a show off thread???? Too long. I have missed everyone and hope to get back to at least a semi regular amount of posts. Figured I’d start with a Reaper mini. For the forum peeps that attended ReaperCon 2019 you may have seen my version of Derek’s beautiful sculpt O-Sayumi or affectionately named Akiko. I had a great time painting this lovely lady. Since I didn’t complete her until Thursday night of the con I didn’t get any photos until last week. Two years to take pics and post them up, not bad huh? 
       
      I missed ReaperCon and all of you. I have been enjoying seeing the pics shared here. So here is to a year of painting more minis and bringing them to Texas in 2022. 
       
      Now without further ado, Akiko.

      Merisiel, Iconic Rogue.  The original artwork is very good but this is one of the early Bones models that did not translate well to the medium.   She flops over, the weapons did not come out well, and much of her detail is guesswork.  I even had to sculpt her a nose because she didn't come with one.  I tried to follow the artwork more or less, but it wasn't worth the effort to spend too much time on her.

      Hello everyone, I hope those who were able to attend enjoyed their ReperCon weekend. It was fun to follow along on Twitch while painting. Here are pictures of 60027, Dorella Kreeg the Ogre Shaman. It's the forth Hook Mountain Ogre model sculpted by David Summers for Pathfinder. It was painted with Reaper MSP paint and stand on 50mm wide base.
