After all the events of last week I decided that I needed a real challenge.

I have had the RBG Kickstarter pieces sitting in my "To Be Painted" box for some time,

and I said I have never painted one of Tre Manor's pieces before.  I went for The Craven

since they look like quite the challenge, and fun. 

 

So.. Cleaned up, washed, mounted on bases, and Primed...(I really needed to feel primer

under my brush again after the crusader Knight !!!

 

So here is The Craven awaiting the first touch of color...(Think Pinks are out) !!!

(ROFL).

I sat down with some Brown liner and used it as a wash on the figures.

Filling in the depth areas, but at the same time exploring the sculpts.

OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!  These things are AWESOME !

Detail is incredible, complexity is daunting (but doable..says he after 1.5 years of using a brush).

Cloth, Metal, skuls, leather, Flesh, and bone.  These babies have EVERYTHING going on !

 

I tend to use the lining coat as an archeological tool, to highlight for me the artists strengths,

and visions if possible.  So I'm not perfect with this coat, its there to highlight to MY Eye what I

want to do with it.  Now I look at it for hours to see what Tre has given me to play with.

Looks like quite the play yard at this stage.

Here are some tinted photos.

(and then I slow down to paint one at a time).

What I like about Tre's figures the most is the amount of detail he's able to achieve at such a small scale. He's a lot like your favorite Tom Meier, IMO.

Noticed the similarity right off the bat.  Attention to detail, perfectionist, subtle touches that increast the depth of folds, and texturizing.

I am Sure that Tom is a fan of Tre's work !

 

Thank you oh great Enabler !

Haha! I'm a huge fan of Tre's work though I haven't painted up nearly enough of it myself. He just finished KS #6 and will do another KS in May or June, I'll make sure to put the bug in your ear then.  :poke:

This has been rather productive today.

Discovered I didn't have to do something today, so I got some extra time to paint.

 

I just added some flesh tones to the Figures, but also discovered that the bow on one

of the craven did not cure (re-glued and drying now).

However, its amazing how dynamic Tre carved the muscle work on these miniatures !

 

Here is some base fleshed Craven (shadow layer):

Got the lagging Craven caught up with the other two.  Bow arm is now attached, and he is base fleshed.

Amazing how many skulls are hanging off the chain..

Wonder if Tre is a Stephen King fan...hmmmmm.

 

Here is the third of the gruesome threesome.

      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
