I saw this miniature a while back and asked for it as a birthday present.

It is small, and detailed, and an amazing amount of muscle and skin

to do.  The Sculpt is also really "tight". 

So I may have taken on a headache, but its been primed, so I am

off to the races.

Here are a couple photos.

The inked one is off their webpage.

Its From Tin Man Miniatures.

They have some pretty strange ones on there.

There is a female riding some sort of lizard figure that is incredible looking.

I bet it would be an amazing figure to paint; but isn't my taste.

Glad I found one that you hadn't seen !

True Metallic Metals? 

are you sure its not cheating if the figure has no metal?  Or are you going to do him as a bronze statue.

Now that's a story - what did the savage hero do for a more advanced civilization that resulted in a statue of him?

Tarzan had movies, and a television series,

I guess being "King of the Jungle" is noble enough to get you a statue made of you ...LOL

The sculpt is pewter, and I'm giving him flesh colors, and probably a leather loin cloth, and bone handled knife.

The flesh tones are going to be an interesting challenge..thats a lot of body to develop interest in, and highlight

all that muscle is going to take time !

Jay, he's referring to the fact that TMM is a term used to mean True Metallic Metals for most mini painters. Tin Man Miniatures is not a common manufacturer.

 

I dig the sculpt and also the rider you referred to earlier.

DUHHHHHHHHHHH...ROFL.

I was trying to figure that one out....

Thank you..

Glad you like the rider one...thats really different !

Hah, yeah TMM, better to spell THAT one out.

 

Anyhow great little figure, I dig it, but agree with DF about him skipping the legs days with those little chicken legs!

 

Go Jay, Go!!

 

I think its intentional though.  It accentuates the ape like qualities of the mini and really gives you a jungle feel.

That's true, with hanging from trees and swinging from vines, he doesn't do much leg work.

Ub3r will be shocked, I pre-mounted him on a 25mm base!  (have to throw you a curve sometimes

my friend) ... :ph34r:

When I am doing this much flesh, I want all those muscles separated buy some good dark areas.

That way I can give each one its own highlight, and contrast, and balance

the colors off each other to keep your eye moving around the figure.

I'm so tempted to do this like a Maui beach blonde surfer (just because it would be funny);

however, it will be brown haired, and more tanned skin, with leather. 

I'm looking at all that  muscle mass...thats a lot of bod, in a small mini !

 

Here he is now:

      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.

      Hello forum Family, gonna show you my version of D'Vandra Lukesia, the metal one. I had hard time with her (but this is part of the fun, isn't?), so many tiny details and her face is sooo tiny 
      In any case I managed to paint her and I'm happy of she came out! 
      About the palette I chose the colors on the fly, started with the yellow skirt and simply add colors at the moment I needed to paint a detail, like the amaranth scarf, or the blue bag, the green vial, and so on.
      I hope you like her too :)

      Short Kickstarter from Bad Squiddo games for female Soviet troopers for WWII gaming.  Thiis expands their existing range and adds troops clad for winter.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/badsquiddogames/women-of-ww2-soviet-russia-28mm-miniatures
       

      Story
      Hello! This is a Kickstarter to increase our existing WW2 Soviets range. Already massively popular since the first wave launch of 2016, we decided it needs reinforcements! The miniatures are sculpted and master cast, so this project is to cover the funds of production moulds and the initial casts.
       
      BORING BUT IMPORTANT TECHNICALS - The miniatures are 28mm scale and cast in extremely high quality white metal. Everything is single piece where possible. They come without bases supplied but with moulded on small puddle  bases (easy to chop off if you wish to). And of course -   they are compatible with the similar male miniatures from other manufacturers. They are supplied unpainted - so you can either paint them yourself or simply bring out the detail with an ink wash.
       
      Shipping is charged in addition to your pledge, AFTER THE CAMPAIGN, scroll to the bottom for more information. Please don't add the shipping cost during the campaign. EU Customers be aware of additional import fees, more on that later too.

      Another little piece that I am happy to finally have completed.  I love these monsters and they are often in my dungeons but rarely seen and never sought after.  Hunting these is like hunting the garbage collector, you only do it when you think you threw out something valuable.  But there have been a couple of points where I wished I had a miniature for it and now that's resolved.  Hope you like him... I named him Fred
