Maledrakh's Minivember: #5, 6 & 12 The Bear, The Wolverine, The Magpie 77216

Recommended Posts

For Minivember I will try to do a different model each day (duplicates or similar models (from the same unit or suchlike still only count as one!).

If you want to see the rest of my minivember minis, feel free to have a look at my painting blog..I won't be posting each and every one here, just the Reaper minis and maybe some that I find especially interesting. Yes, they will be speedpaints, just like all my minis. Seeing as I am starting out a week late, I have some catching up to do...

 

Christmas is not too far off, and Critters are fun and here is Beary the Bear with Wolverinie the Wolverine (probably searching for Porcupiney the Porcupine, who is to carry the new Savior of Critterkind to be born on Christmas Eve. Unless the Mountain Lion eats them all. You know the story.

Your common or garden variety Brown Bear and Wolverine.

They might seem smallish, but that is just because they are in a natural/realistic scale, as opposed to the overlarge Dire variants we usually see in mini form.

And anyway, what the Wolverine lacks in size, it makes up in sheer bloodymindedness! This one does not have any healing factor though.

      Here is my Owlbear promo from Bones Black.  It was a lot of fun to paint!  As an aside, does anyone know if this can still be purchased through Reaper?  I can't find it on the site anymore... :(

      Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

      These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.
       

      36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.

      The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)
       
      I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.
      This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,
      These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.
