Doing the Young Owlbear made me want to do this old one as well.
This owlbear is the O.G. owlbear off the very first of the Reaper Bones kickstarters. It always was a bit weird and extra insane looking, quite different from other owlbears I have seen.
Also it was droopy and askew on it's base. I drilled into the leg from under the base and inserted a long rod to keep it stiff and keeping the talons off the ground. Straightened that c***er out,. Far too much as it turned out. So I glued the original base to the new one at an angle. Maybe the angle should have been even steeper as it is a bit up in the air.
At any rate, insane-looking owlbear = joker = clown = parrot. Time to break out the Napoleonic colours.
It's pining for the fjords! Beautiful plumage, esquire!

One of my favorite monsters out of the D&D-sphere is the Beholder Owlbear. I mean. Half owl, half bear. all insane murder monster screaming though the woods looking like a fluffy snugglebunny. Free Hugs!
In the Bones 4 core set, there was what I presume must be a juvenile fledgling, chick or cub (what would the term be?) It looks a bit small and scraggly and has what seems to be underdeveloped wingarms, especially when compared to other Owlbears by Reaper.
So I painted it as a Great Horned Owl's fledgling, which in general are lighter in colouration until their chick-down falls off during moulting. I have some larger owlbears that will be this one's parents. When I get around to painting them that is.
You said there would be hot chicks here! This is not what I thought you meant!

Picked up this fellow as part of the recent Realm of the Dragon Kickstarter project. He is on a 40mm base, barely, and is a pretty good size. Did a simple tabletop paint job, a couple of layers of color and washes. Very happy with him given how easy he was to paint.
From the Mid 2000's attempt to revive the D&D Chainmail come this Battered Troll Skeleton which was the biggest mini in the Ahumut's Legion Faction box. He has been sitting unpainted for many years as I have found with many of the minis the D&D produced at the time they where a pain to assemble. In his case the full arm and no peg or post and his skull with a bit of the neck was its own part with a minuscule peg and post that did not fit right and would never be able to support the weight of the head. also with the base you had to hand cut the slot that you would tab him into which is the only time i have ever seen that on a mini base. So finally after adding metal post to his parts and getting him on a base I sat down and painted him.
He is your basic skeleton but I do like the little additions on the mini such as the splint holding the leg together and the leather wrap with a nail holding the arm in place as well as the plate bolted on to the chest. It give the mini a bit more character. After finishing him i wanted to work on basing which is a part of the process i tend to neglect so tryed my had at some mud texture paint and still trying to get decent at using static grass and tufts. think it turned out alright but can always use more practice.
Also interestingly enough he is about the same size as the 77004 Cave Troll. So its like a before and after diet pic
