Bones 3: Ogre guard, Ogre clubber, Ogre smasher, Ogre Command

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I was one of the lucky few to have a box waiting for me on Friday afternoon.  After doing inventory last night, I decided I wanted to start with painting some ogres.  Now this is going to take a little longer than normal, because I may.... have bought 11 ogres with the kickstarter.  In the end I got the ogre command, and 2 extra  sets of the core set ogres.  


Here we are at the outset- scrubbed, glued, green-stuffed, and partially primed.  I'll update as I make progress!ogre1.thumb.jpg.49c957507667e60b8f982d4969823263.jpgogre2.thumb.jpg.c5cf351a90f39b59ee7c0e7fb6678e38.jpgogre3.thumb.jpg.2f076f0a023df5f9a9208b03e5a09033.jpg

Update #1:


I finished the priming and applied a coat of GW reikland flesh shade to give the skin some depth. Started painting the first coat on some of the wood and leather too. Taking a break for now, but in the mean time, enjoy these photos! IMG_20170527_200825778.thumb.jpg.934a148cafc4892e221e547f3853f62d.jpgIMG_20170527_200832619.thumb.jpg.8a518c53f5f5a404a06cc184e69d5ce7.jpg

Alright, had some time tonight to go back over and add some flesh highlights over the shade. It's looking a bit flat, so I will probably add another layer of highlighting in before doing a final thin shade to tie it all together. I will say one thing- the amount of muscles sculpted into these minis is impressive- so lots of opportunity for highlights!


In the mean time, enjoy some photos. If anyone has any tips to make the flesh look better, I am all ears!IMG_20170528_233451439.thumb.jpg.22a815d84fb2c859f72303424530c67f.jpgIMG_20170528_233511137.thumb.jpg.a4452bb1dc4b6b9123362b024f6c709e.jpgIMG_20170528_233500209.thumb.jpg.35e89da9b6b42eea22e72b176116f37b.jpgIMG_20170528_233456978.thumb.jpg.a4d407d738339356cb699e1f49f49e6d.jpg

All these Bones 3 posts make me sad I completely missed it.  :p


Seriously though, these look great, awesome start and the minis themselves look amazing.

Another day, another day of progress! Flesh has been mostly highlighted. Going to do one more layer of strong highlights tonight, then would like to do either a darker wash it glaze to darken everything up a bit again, and to tie it all together. I have not done that before however. Anyone have any tips? 


Here's what they look like so far:

I loved these figures from the moment I saw them. These meat towers have the right amount of stompiness to them.^_^

Me too. At some point I'll have to post them next to the older Bones ogres... They are considerably bigger!!

Another update: got some more highlighting done last night... Approaching being done with flesh tones. I decided to shoot some photos of the ogres under strong overhead lighting to best determine where to highlight after discovering Sorastro's YouTube channel and the wonder that is Zenithal highlighting. It was a bit late for that to make a huge difference here, but I'll be using that strategy from now on!

      This is my ReaperCon 2015 entry into the Diorama category. I called it "Faithful Stand" and the idea came about when I first saw the praying paladin. It evoked in me an image of him praying to his god or goddess and something bad sneaking up behind him. I then saw the Reaper Artist Con's Ogres and knew that they were what was needed to put this diorama from my mind into reality. The Grey Maiden was the prefect figure for my idea of a statue of the paladin's goddess. 
      Having got caught up in a pretty big funk for a while, I didn't start this project until about 10 days before ReaperCon was to happen. After much work and many hours, I was able to complete it at the deadline the morning I had to leave for the Con.
      I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working on it!

      Faithful Stand
      He knelt before the statue of his goddess, she was stained with age and time. The alcove had long fallen down around her ankles, but she still stood. He took it to be divine intervention and continued to pray to her, he knew that he was the first to do so in this ruined area in well over a century... 
      ​As the paladin prayed to his goddess, Tog and Gog grinned evilly at each other and came out of hiding in the hills and forest to smash the skull and enjoy a nice meal. They rushed forward, froth and drool flying out of their mouths and eagerness in their long strides. Their clubs wound up and...










      Thank you for looking, C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated!
      P.S. I might still (at some point) apply the feedback I received from Michael Proctor (one of the judges) to fix this piece up more, but I'm still undecided at this point so that's why I'm posting pics now.

      So I'm going to attempt to pull off a feat of craziness here. I'm planning on a 5-figure diorama that I started last night and trying to finish in time for ReaperCon.
      The figures are as follows:
      3 Ogres (Tom, Dick, & Harry from the Reaper Artists Con) -
      03710 03711 03712 Praying Paladin - 03600 Grey Maiden - 60025  
      Photo of Tom, Dick, and Harry (the three to the right) courtesy of hungerfan's post while he was at the RAC:

      Anyhow, here's my idea that came to me when I saw them:
      The praying paladin is kneeling before a broken temple to his Goddess (the Grey Maiden figure). Nature has reclaimed the temple, all that is left are ruins, broken columns and the old faded statue. There is overgrowth everywhere, the statue and columns are stained with the passage of time.
      Suddenly three ogres see him and rush in to clobber the praying paladin, they have him surrounded... 
      So far, I've gotten the ogres mostly cleaned up of mold lines, glued together, and placed on their 2-inch plastic bases. Tonight I'll finish cleaning up mold lines, fill gaps, prime, and work on the big base which is around a 7 inch circular base of wood about 2mm thick, I'll add foam and cork board to build it up.
      The plan is to have the ogres and the paladin as removable and their individual bases cleverly hidden so they look like they are a part of the scene seamlessly. 
      I'll be working fast and furious on this as I only have 10-11 nights to work on it, but most of those nights I'll have 5-6 hours to work on it and that means I could get this done in 50-60 hours. Wish me luck!
      C&C will be greatly appreciated through the process as well.
