So at some point this graced a fish tank, with fish in it, but that was long ago...

 

So now, instead of going in the trash, It will become a Statue for Frostgrave!

 

Material is resin, and I needed to fill some holes with Pro-Create.

I also Bulked out the attachment point for the wings, as they were hitting him in the head...

 

Raw state, with pin and Pro-Create:

Not sure if I will paint the foliage as stone or as living plants, and I am thinking Verdigrised Copper/Brass for the Bowl he is holding....

 

Thoughts and comments welcome!

Good thinking!

 

A lot of aquarium ornaments can be used for terrain or dioramas.

 

You're painting this for Frostgrave, so frozen/ice and all...

 

In that case I wouldn't paint the foliage as living plants.

It would be odd to see green plants in a snowlandscape.

 

Or you need to make them like something frozen..

How big is the bowl compared to a translucent bones fireball? I am thinking eternal flame...

 

...some visiting Wizard's version of Kilroy.

 

So the statue was buried in ice for a thousand years, but thanks to global magical warming it is now exposed?

 

What if the vines are purple-tundra-moss, or inky-deep-green holly? (Recent growth that happened after the thaw.)

 

Or---

 

What if the vines were gilded metal details on the original statue, ice and 1000 years have done for the gilding, and what is left is rusty base metal? ...and an excuse to do rusted metal streaks and stains on areas of stone underneath?

SPLENDID! The statue is a WONDERFUL piece & has the advantage of actually looking like a statue. Have FUN with it!

Very cool, I look forward to seeing how this develops.

 

RE: the plants---if you paint them as being alive/growing, you'll get more versatility out of this as a terrain piece. You could explain it as nice life starting to grow after the thaw.

 

Also, rumors tell of a new setting being developed for Frostgrave:  Jungle grave.(not the actual name, I'm sure) Think pirates and jungle islands.

This would be perfect for that.

Yup, like that one, good statue choice.

 

The verdigre'ed brass or copper bowl sounds like a good idea.

 

depending on the color of your statue I am leaning toward liking the live plant idea.

will be various Greys with splotches of different inks blended in to save it from being to monochrome...

Yup, I remember that, DDS turned out pretty nice.

 

Alright, I say living plants then.

 

Just my opinion.

This awesome! I think if you do the plants as some type of metal it makes the piece usable for different climate types. Lots of statues use bronze, gold leaf, copper, etc accents. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Since you asked, I'd do the statue as stone, skip the metalwork, oxidized or not, AND do the plants as living flora. That's my two cents worth.

Had to use brushes for the Daubing, as I forgot to bring Q-tips....

That's why there is so much color....

 

Looks like something from a Grateful Dead T-shirt don't it?

 

Next step is a dilute Black wash, then moar drybrushing....

      From the Bones 4 core set, this is the subset called "Classic Horror", #130 through #135.
      A take on some of the monsters of the 1930's Universal movies series fame, with both male and female counterparts. I based the Mummy on a 35x25mm base as his integral base was both scenic and rather wide and I did not want to cut it down. The others are based on 30mm round lipped bases.

      I am slowly working through the Bones 4 core set. Today we come to #13, the Warrior of Chaos. I don't know what Reaper is calling this mini, if they even have a name for it yet. I imagine it would be something like "Bloodcurdle Angerpants, Anti-Paladin" or "Gruff McDuff, Evil Fighter". (Feel free to use these names, Reaper )
      But it clearly is a Warrior of Chaos.
       

      This model has the look, what with horned helmet, bulky full plate, skulls, straps, furry shoulders, heavy cloth cloak and the tower shield.
      ...and I was going to put a picture of a chaos warrior from the GW webstore here for comparion, but they obviously did not want me to, so that did not happen. No matter.
      Did I say Warrior of Chaos? This is clearly a Champion of Chaos, what with such a massive rock to put their foot upon! Feet, even!
      I had to base it on a 40mm base. Champion sized at that.
       

      I have the higher ground! You cannot win! Also, I have a full set of Chaos Armour and all you have are tighty whiteys!
       
      B4Core #13 Champion of Chaos
      Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017

      A large mini ragepainted sloppyfast in under an hour just to blow off some steam and get it off the tray it has been standing around for ages on.
      Well, large mini I say. Compared to most other dragons of the Bones kickstarters, this one is rather smallish.
      However, back in the day when heavy metal was king, this mini would be considered a large miniature of a dragon.

      Please use the full SKU and name of Reaper minis in the titles of your Show Off threads, per forum guidelines. You can find this information on the blister card or in the online store. I also like to give credit to the sculptor in a tag, so people can find their favorites.
       
      We have a high volume of posts generated from this challenge, which is great! But it's also creating a lot of work for the mods. Ladystorm has already urged folks to comply with these guidelines.
       
      As an experiment, this project has been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge again, that seemed to have worked so until further notice that is our format. The longer time frame theoretically will give less stress to painting, and allow more complex jobs, and more sinister challenges.
       
      FAQ
      Reaper only? - No.
      If going on vacation, can I paint a mini(s) ahead to cover that time frame? - Yes.
      Are speed paints acceptable - Yes.
      Can it be a mini started previously? - Yes.
      Based or unbased? - Yes.
      Do minis for exchanges count? - Yes.
       
      NEW RULE - Size Equivilancy
      (This list is subject to change as bones 3 releases)
      Medium and smaller = 1 ea
      Simple Terrain (plain floors, walls) = 1ea
      Complex Terrain (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Terrain/latest/03518 or such) = 2 ea
      Large (Giants and the like) = 2 ea
      Huge (Most dragons, Demon Minotaur Lord, etc) = 3 ea
      Bigger (Kally, Khanjirra, etc) = half of quota rounded up
      Colossal ("Tianot,") = quota
       
      Due to the variable nature of a CAV I compare them against a generic 28mm figure and the Avatar large figure. I take height and bulk into considering if it is worth 1 or 2 figures.
      If it's not in this list, it counts as 1. (not yet updated for the CAV II figures)
       
       
      If you have a question on the size, please post it here, and I'll address them individually.
       
      Much like last year, the idea is to help those of us that normally paint VERY little or not as much as one would like, to start painting more.
       
      You challenge begins...now!
       
      And Our Mantra:
       
       
      Participants:
      If your name is missing, or you believe your count is incorrect, please PM me. Please note: to make counts easier, post in the bi-monthly thread and include the tag RPChallenge
       
       
      The objective:
      To paint 52+ minis throughout the course of the year via bi-monthly quota
      (each bi-monthly thread will have the quota listed as well as the master list)
       
      What qualifies:
      Darn near anything!
      Reaper/non-reaper!
      Any material!
      Shelf of shame minis from ages long forgotten!
      Exchange minis!
      Speed paints!
      Armies! (Though I'd encourage perhaps something outside the army as well)
      Any Size!
      Based/unbased!
      Etc! (I think that covers everything)
       
      Year long challenge
      Pick a miniature of size large or greater to complete in the Jan-Feb Block. In Nov-December, purchase that same mini and repaint in the same scheme to see direct side-by-side improvement or changes in your methods
       
      Jan/Feb: 8: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84372-january-february-rpchallenge/
      March/April: 9: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85335-march-april-rpchallenge/

      All the information you need should be here.

      As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge!

      The Last quarter of the year 2019 because real life is a bugbear sometimes.

      Your challenge is: 18!

      Bonus Challenge: 1!
      Fall! Paint a mini that has fallen over (for whatever reason) (Pompeii guy works for this too!)

      Bonus Challenge: 2!
      This is Halloween! - Paint a mini using only colors that have black, orange, and purple in the name. You may also use the paints available from this year's ghoulie bag.

      Bonus Challenge: 5!
      Festive feast - Since both US And Canada have their Thanksgiving in this time bracket - paint up a mini (figure or terrain) to have some food being presented, if you can do a drinking vessel to be painting like a full glass, even better!

      Bonus Challenge: 4!
      For-lack-of-a-better-idea- December 15th is national Cat Herders' day! Paint a tabaxi, or any other mini featuring a feline. (It's a real holiday, go ahead, look it up)

      Hard Mode Challenge 1!
      Jack-o-lantern's light - Paint a mini where the only source of light would be coming from inside a jack-o-lantern. Pumpkin may be part of the mini/base or sculpted

      Hard Mode Challenge 2!
      Under Wraps- Paint a mini so that anything that any non-flesh (armor-weapons-cloth-etc) looks like it's patterned wrapping paper. This is assuming a humanoid figure. Dragons or such apply the same challenge to the whole body.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
