My first time posting to this forum, please let me know if I misstep :p
Reaper Bones Black: 44002 Rock Troll
I added a more rocky base using rock and some plastic crystals carved from leftover plastic sprue. Also added some more crystals to his elbows and side. The elbows were just because I thought it would make it look more menacing but the one on his side was because of a huge hole leftover from the moulding process. To take care of assembly lines I used some of the rock I cracked apart for the base.
I still have the belt and pouch to do, along with the base and some smoothing if blends in his muscles.
Feedback and CC most welcome!!!
I got this mini in the Mini Painting 101 class at ReaperCon. This was our first ReaperCon - my wife and I took the class together. I’d painted about a dozen minis (badly) for D&D before going to RC.
I like this sculpt, and I wanted to work on improving my basic painting skills. I decided to keep working on her to see how far I can go.
I’ve spent an embarrassingly large amount of time on her already. I do feel like I’m learning a lot though and getting better at controlling my brush and getting paint consistency right.
I broke out one of the good brushes I had bought and not touched - a da Vinci Maestro. I still feel unworthy to use it but maybe it will help me get better.
I’ve done a lot of work on the red armor already, but still need to do some more highlighting. I think I might have overdone the highlights on the green ropes in some places. I was planning to glaze them down and redo a bit smaller.
Thanks for taking a look. I would greatly appreciate any feedback or tips on what I can improve on the parts I’ve worked on already.
Here she is so far - she looks a lot better if you squint.
So the reason I had spare blackstar rifles was that I decided a proper pirate captain needs a sword.
So I built this guy with the bones 3 weapon pack, and the spare head off of the bones 4 bulldog armor.
His sword has much fire, and his reactor a distressing blue glow.
The Dragonman something from the Bones 4 core set. This mini actually comes in many parts and with a selection of different weaponry and hand-held things. I went with the bucaneery sabre and dagger on account of the high boots looking a little piratey. Also, this is what the render shown in the KS looked like.
I went with a bronze / gold armour and my new darker flock mix. Turned out well in my opinion at least.
The base is a 3D printed 35x25mm lipped oval as I thought a 40mm round was too large.

This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2.
This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis.
