65140 :: Ogre Mage :: P-65 Heavy Metal

Recommended Posts

It's the surfing samurai ogre mage ... er ... just my P-65 Heavy Metal Ogre Mage.




Yeah, the background was boring so I added a border.  :blues:


As you can see here, he's just basecoated and attached to a piece of slate which has been covered with ballast.


I basecoated this guy a long time ago and shelved him because ... well, I wasn't ready to completely get into finishing him.


I decided last night to pull him from the shelf of shame and resume work on him.  I hooked him up to my holder ... then had to counter his weight with rocks, sand AND water ... he's a heavy bugger.


I used craft paints at the time to basecoat him.  I am okay with the basecoating and enjoy the palette I started.


So, colors ...


The green hakama pants and robe are Celery.


His skin is Phthalo Blue.


The Pack Cover is Lavendar.


The Fur Jacket is Antique Gold.


And the orange-like highlights are Deep Sea Coral(?) ... I think.  Been a while.


The ground is Sunflower Yellow.


The gist of the color scheme was desaturated tones to start with.  We'll see where this leads.

SO much character to this piece. I could see some nice tattoo work on his stomach/chest.

Cool mini!


Will there be a tattoo?


I have considered it.  Perhaps even something like face paint as well.

Got into some shading and alteration of the colors last night.




Sticking with the border ... WTH.


Anyway, used Reaper Midnight Blue to shade his skin.  Reaper Leaf Green and Reaper Jungle Camo to shade his hakana.  Reaper Rattlesnake Leather to shade his fir jacket, the basket and some of his accessories.  I also used Rattlesnake Leather on the grip of his weapon. 


I used Reaper Imperial Purple and Reaper Gem Purple on the basket cover.   Reaper Terran Khaki and Reaper Autumn Shadow to make the basket three colors of wicker.  Reaper Terran Khaki to basecoat the hanging head. 


Then on the Water Goblin on his back, I used Reaper Carrottop Red to shade and then Reaper Lava Orange and Reaper Pale Saffron to highlight the Water Goblin's shell.  Reaper Rattlesnake Leather to shade the Water Goblin's face.


We'll see if I can get to more of him before the weekend.

I think I am done with the mini.  I just have to finish up the base then send him to Show Off.


Quick pics:

He looks awesome.


I just think the base needs some more, maybe some leaves or something???


Yup.  As I mentioned, I just have to finish up the base.


I'll build up some moss with some ground foam and then scatter some leaves or something.


I may skim a section with green putty and create a slate rock in front of him, or get a slim piece of actual slate and glue it over the sand and make a slate outcropping that way.

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.


      Full frontal metal shiny.

      And rotating around for those that want to look.
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.

      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I'm pretty excited about finishing this guy. Stone giant (HT8c) from Otherworld Miniatures. I used Badger's gray airbrush primer, Reaper 09086 Stone Grey and 09087 Weathered Stone 09476 Woodland Brown, Army Painter Dark Tone wash.
      Comments are welcome!

      I made this model at a Reaper Bones make & take at Historicon 2015(?).  I really enjoyed making him and thought he turned out well and had plans to paint him one day......and then the Secret Sophie came along and my recipient wanted a cool monster or creature and I thought this model fit the bill in spades.   The main model I used is KAGUNK, OGRE CHIEFTAIN (https://www.reapermini.com/search/ogre/latest/77105), armed with a demonic looking whip, using a sarcophagus lid as a shield (https://www.reapermini.com/search/crypt/latest/77137), legs from...something (gryphon maybe), spines from a small dragon, and some various heads as trophies around his waist. 
      I decided to name him Takzez and have given him two brief write ups - one as a bad guy and one as a good guy.  However, I do want to have the receiver to have something to himself and he can let me know later if he'd like me to share that info or not later.  But in the meantime, here he is.  Apologies for the photos, I rushed as it is already late.

      I do wish I'd had more time to work on his skin and legs, although the skin turned out tons better than my first attempt at it.  Oh wow, I am going to hit that inner bottom corner on the shield with a was a few times before I send it.
      C&C welcome!

      So I needed a break from all the Bones 4 minis. And dug into the Bones 3 stash for variations sake.
      I found one of my old modules -The Village of Hommlet, and spent some time reading. Ah, The Moathouse! Brings back memories!
      And I got inspired to do the Bandits from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion, as they were similar in style to the ones I recently painted. And to flesh out the band, I added a couple of other Bones 3 minis that were in the same drawer, and that I thought might fit in a band of robbers.
      One quick paint job later:

      I want your money...and your life!
      From the "Dwarf Kings Companions" add-on set, this is the
      77574 Dwarf Royal Weaponmaster
      Sculpted by Jason Wiebe
      30mm base

      Just add the bones 4 ones to this lot, and there we have a goodly group of bandits.  Or a unit of irregulars / rabble or whatnot in some wargame or other.

      Good day everyone, here are a few pictures of the 03017, Charnel Grub aka Carrion Cralwer I painted for the diorama I recently finished. This metal Dark Heaven Legends model was sculpted by Jason Wiebe and is also avalable in Bones under SKU # 77226.
