A Two-Tone Boerogg Blackrime, Frost Giant Jarl

Recommended Posts

This is awesome!  I love this piece, your style is so beautiful.  I love the urgency of your brush work.  The slashes of paint impart a lovely efect.

Another gorgeous piece, Pingo. I'm amazed at the range of colors produced with just three paints: from the bright blues and oranges of (I assume) the pure colored pigments to that purpley-gray sword. If I might make a slight criticism, however, the face seems to get lost. My eyes are drawn to the bright white and orange-browns of his decorative teeth and skulls, while the face is somewhat hidden in a sea of icy blue. I'm not really sure what the solution would be. Your Svetlana had that mask done in warm colors to draw the eye, but Boerogg doesn't have anything like that to take advantage of.


Regardless, this is masterfully done. The face itself is particularly gorgeous and expressive, so it's a shame it's not as much of a visual focus-point as it could be. As I said in the other thread, the eyes are spectacular.

Again, the way you paint is so delightfully different to the usual approach (no criticism of the usual implied, either). I dub it "unabashedly painted"! Thankyou, thankyou everybody, you can use that for half my usual fee.


I actually like this guy even better than the giantess. The sketchy, energetic look identified by Dontfear really works well with this aggressive looking piece.89i <- the new cat doesn't understand the rules about keyboards.


So yeah, it's got a real "premium comicbook cover" feel to it that I think is extra cool in its own right. And the switch between YARRRRHHHPAINTPAINTPAINTPAINT* and the precise, intense blue of the decorative elements is candy for the old visual cortex, I really like that.



*And I mean that with full respect to your obvious skill and precision, displayed throughout; it just has a such a full-bore, open-throttle look to it that I find unusual and striking.

      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.
