Oh, I really like the black and reddish-orange coloring on him! And the rock-like growths on his back are so convincingly painted that they look like you glued on real gravel!

 

 

(Edit: KruleBear and I were thinking the same thing at the same time!)

Looks like you glued real rocks to his back. Good job on a big mini.

Thanks! I spent a great deal of time on the back so I'm glad it came out looking that realistic.

Love your work here!

I understand what you're saying about the base. I trimmed it with a knife and boiled/cooled it until it was dead flat. Once you attach the beast to the base it just bends over again. It absolutely will not stay flat on it's own. The material, like so many Bones minis, is just way too soft. I'm going to glue the base to a CD. Another Reaper forumite did that and it looks like a great solution. Mashaaf's base fits perfectly on a CD with no overhang and only a small portion of the CD showing.

Thanks for this. I really wasn't sure what I was going to do about the base since it's bent pretty severely. I have a ton of blank CD's so I'll have to try that.

Anytime. :) 

The thread with the truly helpful forumite (Chris Palmer) has a thread here and he even has a blog post here where he talks about attaching the base to a CD. My Mashaaf is just sitting unpainted on a CD. Poor thing. She's too embarrassed to attack anybody without a proper coat of paint. ( ¬‿¬)

      Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft  paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well.
       
      I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go.
       
      Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.

      I don't do WIP's very often and I'm well into a couple of these guys. But I added a couple more as I started to base the first few so I figured I might as well. Maybe it will help me keep my focus. 
      We have the 3 bones ogres from a kickstarter or two ago, the bones black preview ogre, metal Kagunk 2, and the bones 4 ettin. I may decide to add metal ogre chieftain (aka kagunk 1) as well as he is half finied on the shelf anyway, and metal Norr'Okk, if I can ever figure out what to do about his head. 
      Also considering ordering the newer ogre chieftain, but we will see.

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       
      I started Kagunk, Ofre Chieftain a year or two ago.  
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.

      Hi all, my first post was answered by such warm and supportive folks I decided to have a crack at the ol' orc from Reaper mini training set #1. The left eye took me 6 tries (and twice that many curses.)  Really enjoying this new hobby, first time I tried was back in 1983 and it was a disaster.  Maybe patience does come with age.  :)

      I loved this sculpt from the moment I saw it. I absolutely could not wait to paint it. But I was intimidated by it for a variety of reasons. I didn't like most of the color schemes I initially chose, and repainted him several times. I wanted a decent base for him (I greatly regret not rebasing Cthulhu, for example), etc. etc.  
       
      But then things just kind of came together and I painted the beastie a little bit at a time over the past few days... and I'm really happy with the outcome!
       
      C&C appreciated -- this guy was unexpectedly challenging for me, so there's probably oppo for improvement here. :-)
