Absolutely superb!!

What are you using for that snow?

Just white flocking and some regular glue; I made it a bit thicker so that the snow would come off clumpier, then just started piling it on. Underneath the snow, appearing at the edges, is crackle paint that I dry brushed to make some ice. 


Sweet webs.  Is that water effects?

That's actually clear fishing line with superglue dripped down it. I then cut smaller segments to start the form of the web as the spell accelerates out of his palm. The super glue made it rigid enough to take form, but the underlying fishing line still bends and flexes enough that it took shape easily enough. Everything is all OSL these days...I wanted more of a physical spell and I envisioned him at the base of a stairwell casting the spell so that adventurers couldn't pursue his escape.

Awesome!  Love the web effect.  And I hadn't thought of swapping the orc's weapons with the bugbears.....


Spider Hobgoblin, Spider Hobgoblin,

Does whatever a Hobgoblin can

Spins a web, any size

Catches Adventurers just like flies

Look out! Her comes the Spider Hobgoblin....

OUTSTANDING! The Trio are BEAUTIFULLY painted & based. Your color choices are WONDERFUL...I love the Bug Bears' facial tones in particular. VERY WELL DONE!

I added the Hobgoblin to my shopping list, AND LO there was your Lad in the catalog...Reaper will be selling more of that Guy with your mini as an example of just how UBERCOOL he can be.

      Reaper Bones Bugbear Warrior saved from the hobby shop junk bin and ready for the table. He'll see action next week in the Village of Hommlet moathouse dungeon.

      BTW, this is the second mini I've painted since I got back into the hobby after a long hiatus (35 years).

      The bugbears that came in Bones 3 (the 4 identical ones) all had really floppy maces. Last night I decided to do something about that. One got a plastic ax from the weapons sprues, while the other is getting a spear based on a bamboo skewer. I'll be adding a proper spear to the tip of the skewer made out of greenstuff, but I need to make it first.

      These guys had been sitting on my desk of unfinished minis for a long time, so in February I finished them up for the "finished, not perfect" section of the Jan/Feb RP Challenge.  Total models for January/February 2019 ended up being 5, but that already is more than I typically get done in that span, so I'll call it a win.




      Thanks for looking!  C&C welcome.
