Well done Jay..   the remainder of his base blends in perfectly with the bark, and if I had not followed your WIP. I would not think it was there.


Thanks robinh;

Hiding the remnant base was a bit tricky, but lots of fun.  Making color choices to blend it in, with lots of the

base colors being mixed together to make it unified.  This was fun, and I am glad I made the WIP for folks to follow along.

Thanks for your support and comments.

Well done, Jay! That figure is absolutely striking.

So Glad you like him Klarg1;

This is one of those.. STRETCH out mini's, its going to make you grow !

Thanks for commenting.


Very cool. Nice use of color. 

Thanks Inarah. 

Since I mix my own colors, its great to see them come together right. 

Those oranges are a bear to do, and that blue was driving me to blending layer madness.

But it came together in the end !

Thanks again.

Sweet work!  I really like that base, and it really contrasts well with the cool blue of his cloak!  Great work!!!   ::):

Thank you Kuro for the very kind and supportive comment.

I watch your stuff in awe most of the time, so your comment made me smile.

I attribute the color contrasts to the time I FINALLY have spent relearning how to use my color wheel.

That whole figure is based on greens, and blues, and mixing in their complimentary colors.

I don't think I have ever used the wheel so much; but it WON'T be the last time that is for sure.

Thanks again

You're getting better with each mini!


I love the clothing on this one and the base is marvellous!

Thanks my technicolor wolf friend.

Your positive input means a great deal to me.

Fantastic work, Jay!


I love to see you challenge yourself and take chance and do new things with the basing. I enjoy the story this one tells.

Thanks so much Ub3r_n3rd !

Its great to have a fantastic cheering section when you set out into the unknown.

Your support helps me venture out there, and accept a crazy challenge to paint a base with lava flowing down it !

ROFL.  It has been terrific to do.  I really love looking at this one,

Happy to help cheer you on and see how far you've come!


You should do a new thread and show us your whole painted collection as you've done what, like 125-140 figures so far?

I think I have done 130 + or - in the last three years.

I miss that "continuous thread we used to have"... don't know if it even exists anymore.

I'll think about that Ub3r; I have a library of what I have done, but some of those photos are pathetic !!!

I was just thinking of a thread with just a few pics of the entire collection and then like your first figure and your most recent to show how far you've come since you started.


Think that is something I can do.

I'll try to work that out !

      Long gone is the time of Dwarves in Midlam, a city built over the ruins of their Middle Home, which lay between the Lost Mountains and the Southern Holds.  The Barons of Midlam have always claimed their city was gifted to them by the dwarves of old, and claim an ancient alliance, although dwarves have rarely been seen in the city, and must register their presence with the Town Council.
      Far to the North, so they say, lies the Lost Mountains, a place of legend and dragons.  It is said that many years ago, a dwarf came to Midlam in secret, hired two guides and headed North, never to be seen again.  There was also rumours that a group of grizzled dwarven mercenaries made the journey, but they too disappeared into folklore.
      Now rumours abound of Dwarven Adventurers, heading North once more, into the perpetual freezing wastes.  The frightened chatter speaks of their desire to rid the Mountains of the orcs and goblins and return the Dwarven King to his throne.  Nobody knows what truly lies North, but people fear the return of the old wars, rampaging dragons and a dark evil that has no name...

      This fellow has been lurking at the bottom of a drawer or box for over 30 years.... I finally painted him up. It was actually a bit irritating somehow... I guess that's why he sat in nothing more than a coat of primer and a red shield for so long! Not sure the maker, maybe citadel? He is on a metal part for the slot base that helpfully says 'orc'. All this time later, I love him just for nostalgia and remembering my dad painting up all those orcs... and we never used the minis in play!

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.

      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.

      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.

      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.
