Tengu Rogue (more like Ranger) 03698

Recommended Posts

Love the brown feathers!!!

Thanks! It is mostly Reapers Harvest Brown and highlights of it. I like the orangy-ness and the bird colors. I originally was going to paint it as an oriole.

One person's "rogue" is another's ranger, fighter-wizard, or whatever you want.  Sometimes it's better if you don't notice the official title.  (Cue the old story about the person who wouldn't buy the figure labeled "ranger" because his character is a fighter who uses a bow.)


You've achieved a very nice woodsy effect with your choice of colors.  I like the subtlety of your choices in the greens and browns (orange-brown, red-brown, purple-brown...), the woodgrain on the bow, the texture of the feathers, and the flower on the scabbard.


This was a figure that I designed and sculpted, so I really appreciate your note of "elegant".  I made the surfaces simple so you would have a chance to show off your brushwork, add some freehand, etc.


Thanks for sharing!

(Sorry for not replying until now.)

Nice! I have mostly seen him painted black so it is nice to see your version. I like how you tied warm colors on the mini with your autumn leaves on the base. Very nice. I think he makes a great ranger!

Thanks! My putty skills are limited to filling in gaps, so i always admire what you sculptors can do (and try my best to do sculpts justice when painting.)

My friend was extremely happy with the model. I woodsy themed all of his tengu which gave him a different story he never would have thought of before. 

I was hoping reaper would use it as one of their website sale models, but i guess they already have a nicely painted one :)

Great clean work. 


I like the subtle highlights on the armor.

      This is Thrasios, a triton ranger and one of the players in my D&D 5e Theros campaign. I built this mini in Hero Forge according to the player's description and added my own touches to it. For example, I was inspired by the neon tetra fish in painting the skin and I used Greek hoplite reference pictures to paint the armor.

      I don't really like this sculpt, they've cut corners too much for my taste, but as I painted Drizzt it grew on me. Has some kind of charm and I like it now  hope you will too!

      Finally I finished my conversion of Nienna Elfen Ranger. I pretty much changed every aspect of the original mini.
      New things attempted: Cloth textures and freckles.
      C&C very welcome.
      Areas to improve: Blends (smoother is always better), finer texture patterns, sculpt could be a little cleaner in some places.

      The last of my player characters I painted up for Frostrun is Ophelia Pokitz, a young halfling with sticky fingers.  They're represented here by Bailey Silverbell.
      Ophelia was a fun mini as well.  Was my first time painting a humanoid with large facial features, which made it a lot easier to bring definition to the nose, lips, and eyes.  I think I even hit the cheeks with a bit of blush.  I also had fun trying to make their cloak look like it was made of fur.  The result is acceptable, but might also just look snow covered.  You can be the judge.  I also enjoyed painting a rogue that was both colorful, but subdued.  The dark greens and magentas add some much needed life to the otherwise dark mini, in my opinion.

      More Photos beneath the spoiler:
      Ophelia Pokitz is what you would call a troubled teen.  Orphaned at a young age, Ophelia spent much of their childhood passing from orphanage to orphanage, always finding a way to get kicked out.  They eventually left the system and struck out on their own, traveling to some of the larger cities in search of a better life.  Over the years, Ophelia has learned to use their small size and tiny hands to "reposes" any valuables that aren't bolted down.  This habit has put them on a wanted list in many towns across the countryside.  Pushed further north, Ophelia has found themselves in the town of Harpy's Hearth.  Ignorant of their southern reputation, and full of gold-carrying adventurers, this could be a great place for Ophelia to catch a break and line their own pockets.  It could also be a great place to find a new family.  If they can survive the darkness to come.
