I picked up my Orc Druid from e-bay, and he arrived already sort of painted. 

So into the paint stripper he went, and on the other side came out looking much better!



And then tonight he got painted with brush on primer. 




For the most part he's a well sculpted mini, though there is a mold line running across the skull on the staff, and then down the staff and across his right hand. The other big on is on the underside of his left arm. The worst bit to get is between the straps on the back of the staff


Talking tonight with the Knarthex, Dilvish, and CW about skin tones, I think I'm gonna try to match the blue I used for the Black Orcs from Bones 1.

Nice plan. Is he a lot smaller than those orcs?

Not really. I'll take a picture tonight. The face is radically different, but the size works just fine.


His face is different because he is old and steeped in the ways of evil.....


either that or to much tofu...

Not much progress tonight because of D&D. Mostly slapping some blue to test for skin tone against the other black orcs I've painted. This is Void Blue. Might be a bit lighter than I'm looking for, but I can darken it up.

      Hello everyone, I completed this Wizards of the Coast model today. This is a 88714, Goblin Scout of the Drazen's Horde faction. It's a Chainmail Miniatures model that was sculpted by Jerzy Montwill. The base is 20mm in diameter and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      Another little piece that I am happy to finally have completed.  I love these monsters and they are often in my dungeons but rarely seen and never sought after.  Hunting these is like hunting the garbage collector, you only do it when you think you threw out something valuable.  But there have been a couple of points where I wished I had a miniature for it and now that's resolved.  Hope you like him... I named him Fred

      Hello everyone, I had painted this Wizards of the Coast 88362, Hammerer years ago and it was the perfect model to practice weathering effect. So, I took it a step farther last weekend during Reaper Virtual Expo. I followed the advices David Cecil and Justin McCoy give over their respective Weathering Effects classes. I added rust, oil leaks, blood and improved the scratches. I also added mud between the stone tiles on the base and enhanced the glowing effect of the eye and runes. This model was sculpted by Jim Warner.








      Side-by-side comparison, before and WIP.
