I finally got this beast finished. I have a snake god in my homebrewed campaign, Baumol, the Neutral Evil god of corruption, lies, and envy, and really love getting these serpents for him to inflict on my players. Since this is much more likely to be a statute than a creature (though it'll be that, too), I decided to paint it up with an elaborate base. I gouged out the mini's eyes and replaced them with craft store fake gemstones, picked up some Reaper flaming spheres (77081) and cut up the graveyard expansion pillars from Bones 3 (77638) to make braziers, then mounted them all to a wooden pyramid I got at a craft store and covered with cobblestone texture-rolled sculpy. I drilled a pit into the base of the sphere, through the braziers, and through the base, then ran some LED string into the fires and mounted the battery in the base. I'm really satisfied with the result. Baumol's holy symbol is a gold or black snake curled around a red gem signifying a heart, so the cobra's hood has this symbol on both sides, and there's a red oval on the base upon which the snake sits. His favored weapon is a trident, so the inner hood markings are tridents, too...

And now with the LEDs on.
I'm back with a new conversion.
The classic one was like that :

I had a project that called for two of the Maria androids from bones 4. But since she comes paired with the male android, I had two left over.
So I chopped them up to make these silly things. Their right arms are the gun from a blackstar corair, backpacks are from a mantic gcps, and the chest is a little tablet computer from gates of Antares I think.
Also a blackstar corsair for comparison.
Here is the snake man warrior I finished a few weeks back. I was having issues with the yellow belly since the paint was very chalky but I did what I could. I am happy with the shading and tiny reflection on the gem on his bracer, it was my first time doing that, even though it's basically invisible from 3 feet away. Let me know what you think!
Presenting Ziba the Efreeti (although I've gone for more of a giant, scary woman version) who was Marchs Bones Black promo mini.
I think I did a pretty good job with her head, the rest not so much, but I had fun painting her.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
