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!

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...

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).

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

 

G'night!

      Since I haven’t had a WIP in a very long time, I thought this mini would be perfect for it. I plan to paint her up for a Christmas gift for a friend and figured to keep me on track I’d do a WIP. 
       
      I have a few minis in progress she’ll be my main priority after my Darksword Stephanie Law Bard. I prepped her and primed yesterday after the humidity finally dropped.
       
      My current projects in various stages on my desk. 

       
      And just the pinup after some prep work 

       
      A few places I could have spent more time on but figured I’ll prime and see what stands out. 
       

       
      I used army painter matte black primer followed by Tamiya fine white primer. For the bits on her base I left them in black since she will be the focal point no need to use white on them, it’ll help the colors be a bit more muted. 
       
      And finally my quick mock up for color checking. I usually just print a stock photo and use my paints over it to plan the general scheme. 

       
      Now to finish up my bard then onto tackling her flesh. Since she’ll have a hint of sheer with her stocking I needed to be sure the color for her skin and the sheer works and won’t lose the effect due to the color choices. 
       
      Feel free to post C&C throughout, or ask questions. I’m always happy to share what I can. I’ll do my best to share the steps I take and colors used. 
       
      Happy painting everyone.

      I finished some townsfolk recently, they snuck into the queue ahead of my halfpainted drow squad. 😮

      Here are 2 Bones 3 ogres I finished in the last few months, Reaper Ogre Matriarch (SKU 77568) and Ogre Chieftain (SKU 77566) . The detail on the goblin was very soft, and my painting progress stopped for a couple of months.  But now they are finally ready for some tabletop fun.

      This is the Reaper Bones Familiar from the Stone and Familiar set (SKU 77390).  He will be an important bard NPC in a Savage World game I am hoping to run sometime soon.

      Since even cultists love fashion, I went with purple marble on this one. This is the Bones version of the 77139, Altar of Evil sculpted by Bob Olley.
