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. ( ¬‿¬)

      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. :-)

      Frost Giant Court - King, Queen, and Guards are from earlier KS (I believe), Rangers are add-ons from Bones 4. C&C welcome. Will post close-ups of rest tomorrow.

      Since I’m wrapping up Deladrin, here is the next in the queue.  Devona, Female Wizard.  She’s a curious wizard with plate mail leggings, a chain mail skirt, and a staff that looks more like a spear.  Also, is her torso adorned with a breastplate?  Or is it part of her dress?  And what’s up with the scalloped things on her back?
       
      Not sure what I’m going to do with her.  I hope you enjoy the process of discovery tagging along with me.  The one thing I have decided is to try to give her more of an East Indian skin tone.

      Hello forum friends, wanna share with ya'll my most recent painted mini. We have a lot of time atm to hobby hard! :D
      Tryed new tecnics on this bad boy (well new for me) like loaded brush, mixing colors right on the mini etc. Took me way less that layering and glazing, obvious the quality is lower, but still good IMHO.
      The palette of choice is the most natural possible, lot of oranges and browns, but also some punchy color like the blue of the hairs and a bit of red.
      Also used some dry pigments on the base... not good result, but still accetable for tabletop.



      Any C&C is welcome, let me know if you like it.
      Thanks for watching :)
