So, this Minotaur fellow has been staring at me in pieces for a while now. I've decided the time has come to get painting, and while I'm at it, make my first ever WIP post. Because in the words of the great Devo:

"When a demon miniature comes along, you must WIP it!":poke:

 

End goal: mini to be used in my D&D campaign. He doesn't need to be display quality, but I'll still welcome your tips and suggestions to improve my work.^_^

So far I've just put down some brown liner and temporarily stuck it together to make sure everything is on track. Currently mixing up colours for the base coat... More soon!

This is easily one of my favorite minis from Bones II. Can't wait to see what you do with it. Gotta admit, this guy is kinda intimidating for me. There's a lot going on with him.

Thanks all for your interest!

 

Basecoat is coming along on the main body portion of the mini...

The main body colour is a 2:1 mix; Harvest Brown: Blonde Hair (MSP).

 

For the metal plates, I'm making use of a bottle of bronze-y "sample" paint from Reaper, and the amulets, as well as other assorted razzle dazzle are MSP dragon gold.

 

Also started basecoating the loin cloth piece...

Used "fresh blood" for the cloth. Haven't decided on a colour for the skull yet. Metallic? Bone coloured? Thoughts from the audience appreciated!!

 

Thanks again! I'll be in touch :)

I'd say the skull looks more like decorative metal than actual bone. It might look cool painted up as bone but I'd go with metal. The horns on that skull might look nice painted up as bone though.

I think you're right! The metal plate really ties the armour together, and adding just a bit more bone with the horns is a nice touch!

 

Last update for tonight! Basecoat is nearly finished...

Next step is finishing the glaive arm...

20170619_220447.thumb.jpg.5bee302fefcfa138162331b2c1a89ea0.jpg

Thinking adding some sort of leathery/meaty detail to the area just above the grip (it kind of looks like some sort of flesh and bone business stretched over the blade).

20170619_220542.thumb.jpg.054f2961727a8a3f3e7b547cbb1f06fe.jpg

 

After I finish the glaive, I'll be doing some touch-ups, then starting my washes. Woot woot!

 

G'night!

Finished up the glaive! Glued everything together and finished the washes...

Pretty much finished! Might do a bit of touching up and highlighting before posting it in the Show Off thread.

Awesome! 

 

I do think some of the brass armor, especially on the lower legs, would benefit from an extra black or blackened brown wash to bring out the details. Kind of like you did on the glaive where the dark lines really help the details pop.

      Tabletop cultists for my dnd game. I wanted them to have a look that I could either use to be sinister and evil, or even 'good' cultists that have gone too far...the leaders feature red and blue while their subordinates feature green and blue. I chose to do metallic masks of varying metal types and shades.
       
      My goal was to work on the speed at which I paint things like NMM so that I can get results without agonizing as I might for a competition piece.

      Hello forum family, want to share to you my last work: Lou AKA chibi-Cthulhu 
      Tried a purple contrast on him, the outcome is pretty nice, I think.
      The base is made sclupting some clay balls and cutting it in half to make the acid bubbles painted with fluo colors from Vallejo; then I've sculpted some tentacles and added to the base to make it more dramatic. A coat of glossy sealer and I call it done.
      Hope you like it:



      As always every comment, advice and criticism is super welcom!

      This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;) 
       
      I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.

      Hello forum family,wanna show you my last work, the Necromancer the bones one; she got way less details than the metal one, but it is good to try new techs.
      So, why do not try to refine my NMM and new skin type?
       
      And this is the outcome:

       
      Had to paint the low edge of the blade, as the sculpted one is too small, and I tryed some basic reflection, pretty happy of the result :)

      Hope you will like her, and rememmber than any advice and criticism is welcome!
