Great job. Love the wood grain and metals. My only critique is the teeth and toenails are a bit too bright, and could do with some dirtying up.

Love it! Wish I could do wood like that.

I find that Dullcote sometimes reacts with my metallics, especially the silvers. Does this happen to you as well?

I know about it, and actually plan on it when painting...

Another really nice one to get off your shelf! I also love the wood on the shield, it's very well done.

The wood shield came out really nicely.  I guess I didn't realize that these bugbears had such itty bitty piggy eyes..

 

Yeah, if you stay within the lines so to speak, they are pretty small.  OTOH, the detail isn't very deep so you could freehand the eyes if you wanted.

If they were actually that white in hand I would agree with you.  Like most of my show-off pics I adjusted the color balance before posting.  I am willing to sacrifice off-whites to get everything else correct and that's pretty much what I did here.  Originally I had the teeth and nails as a bone-white, which would have probably photographed better but did not have a high enough contrast with the skin in hand.

I haven't had a chemical reaction, if that's what you mean.  However, since the dullcote reduces the reflectivity of the mini it's also going to make the mica flakes appear less reflective as well.  So yes, it causes a visual shift on the "metal."

      It's night, it rains and it seems everybody in this forsaken town has closed their doors and windows.
      Even the Inn seems to be closed, why?
      One would think the villagers are afraid of something.
       
      You hear the sound of wings in the dark sky above you.
      Suddenly you hear a soft voice:
      All alone in the dark? How nice!
       
      You turn around and the last thing you see is the Necromera.

      Some basic table-top paints here,  The owlbear paint is (more or less) a straight up copy of the Reaper website example but i think the base is interesting.  It starts off basically as a rock/gravel pile, and I thought it was rather boring so i turned it into the Owl Bear's cave floor covered in feces about an arms length deep. Practiced some sculpting on it. With P3 putty The big rocks were turned into Ogre skulls, a horse skull, and a face-down skeleton of some sad creature, all simmering in poo :)

       
      The Ankheg, it's always a balance of painting something like for max visual appeal or realism, went with the latter since something that just burst out of the ground would be pretty dirty, at least on the side it's digging with. This is my own work, did not copy anything so in that regard I'm pretty happy with it.

       
      For the back, went with a Game Color Dragon Green mixed with Filigree Silver, highlighted with a mix of bright yellow, Army painter Hemp rope, and a touch silver.

      The Owl Bear fur is  Black Base + Citadel Rhinox Hide ,Game-color Woodland Brown and Dessert Tan layered in. Wings are Stormy gray lightening out Rainy gray  on tips. For some reason this model was really east to paint ,  it never fought back like some of them do, (probably because i coped a picture ;)

      My Secret Sophie arrived at its destination i can share with everyone.  My recipient wanted something cute.  I thought it would be cute to have a man feeding his pet.  Just because his pet happens to be a rust weevil should not be held against him. 
       
      I saw the barbarian and it looked like he was throwing the swords rather than. Actually using them to hit anything.  I also had a spare rust weevil and the whole thing just came together.
       
      Roger got the old swords out of the box from his adventuring days.  It had been a while since he'd been out to the dungeons but at the rate George was going through weapons, he was either going to need to buy a new crate or go delving.  Maybe this time he'd just buy a box of old weapons, let the younger kids go fight the baddies.  These two look okay.  He grabs the weapons and heads out to the field.  When he reached the edge of the field he looks out over the fine red and tan soil and dust.  HEY GEORGE!  He yells out over the field.  In moments George shows up jumping and chittering.  "Hey George" he says again, "its dinnertime!  FETCH!"

      Needed a bunch of ghoul types so grabbed a bunch or bones ghasts - and added in one of the bones IV ghouls. Not sure how I feel about the ghasts, I turned out kind of not liking them and regretting the purpleish color. An relearning I should never paint groups larger than 3 - I don't have the attention span....
       
      The grey themed bones iv ghoul made me smile though -
       
      quick paints for a graveyard scene. Tried adding some grey mud to the brown.

      Look at this cute fellow!  But don't look directly at his eyes.  Too late?  Uh-oh, I'm sorry if you just turned to stone.
      Anyway ... this is the Basilisk, #77371 in Bones.
       

       

       

       
      The color scheme is inspired by the iridescent plumage of a bird, the White-faced Ibis (Plegadis chihi).  My folders of saved wildlife references include a photo of an ibis whose wing has golden, green, and orangey-pink metallic tones, and its head is more purplish-pink.
      I clipped away part of the integral base and built up this rocky base with putty.
      I added bits of two metal figures as the basilisk's petrified victims: the head is one of the 3 options for the Death Warden (Dark Heaven 03083), and the leg is from my Dwarf Shieldmaiden (Warlord 14379).  I imagine that the basilisk ate the rest of those 'statues' and left these for later snacking. 
      The grass is a preformed "Winter Tuft" product (dull yellow-green and black) with painted highlights, and the leaves are dried oregano, fully painted.
       
      I had used this basilisk as a demonstration figure at ReaperCon 2019 ... or maybe 2018 ... in my "Painting Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class. 
      It was all dark green, with just the front right shoulder area painted with highlights simulating smooth shiny scales. 
      It sat on my shelf since then.  I wanted to paint something small and relatively simple, so I mentally kicked around a few color schemes without conclusion until I rediscovered the image of the ibis last week.
      I spent a couple of hours wet-blending the colors, and then a few more hours glazing and stippling, shifting the scales green and pink and purple and yellow-ocher and orange, etc.
       
      Enjoy!
      Derek
