I got the critters as an addon to the DSM kickstarter recently. The first thing I am painting is this guy, a musk ox warrior. He's big, so priming took a while. And I am using a crummy brush for base coating all this fur because it is a brush mangler until I get to the nitpicky stuff. 

 

I'm trying to make the small bit of chainmail 1) NMM to see if I can do it and 2) slightly tarnished. I don't think thia guy is good at cleaning. 

 

Armor color themes I am thinking dark red primarily, with black, blue, and green accents. I was looking up eskimo art for the sake of doing his belt-thing justice, and those seem like reasonable colors to go with. 

 

Thanks to the CMPA for the poster tack and the jar idea - had to find a big jar for him!

He's looking more shaggyrific. I did multiple dark colors on the eyes, but I don't know that they really show up. Then again, looking up musk ox, their eyes are pretty darn black anyway.

Very cool!

 

Something tells me that he'd confuse wolves. He looks like meat but is too handy with the weapons ;)

He's a chunker. About 150% height of a normal figure with a lot more girth.

Perfect, thanks!

I feel like he'd be good for Forgotten Realms Yakfolk, with that height.

I began highlighting the shoulder pads (uuugh I love this red triad) and practiced some freehand on the purse. Inspired by Michael Proctor's rendition of this guy, but not copying him.

Got the fish on his chest completed. Got a fish texture on the red in the tail. Not 100% happy with the color scheme. Do like the shading on the plate (was going for a steelish look).

Got the knife done.

 

The pommel was probably intended to be bone and I went for a darker metal. Maybe it is bone coated in dark iron. 

 

The coloring was fun. 

 

Put a chevron on the front. Colored the knobs. 

 

I think the extra color on these helps balance the fish out. 

 

Thinking that the fuzzy trim should be a medium tone slightly reddish brown.

Unchanged!

 

I am a bit unsure about the colors I have for the boots and the trim now. I don't know if I can balance them well with the club over his head. The brown I chose is visually a similar tone as the red, and it is a lot in one spot. Maybe I highlight it? 

 

Will get pictures soon (phone vs computer typing).

      Hello fine fans and lovers of the Reaper Miniature World!
       
      So today I've got two figures to post. I'd do them together, but different sculptors and different genres.
       
      The first one is an old Julie Guthrie figure from the eighties, Woman Warrior With Two Swords.  I think she came in a box from the range "the Adventurers", which was full of female player characters.
       
      So here she is:

       
      In one of Anne's podcasts, she was doing non-metal metal and I'd asked her about her base colors and she suggested more grey as opposed to a blue beginning, so with this figure and her metals, I started out with Rainy Grey instead of Ashen Blue which is what I normally use.  I think she came out pretty decently, even though of course I'm never satisfied with my own work.  Such is the curse of the painter....
       
      Anyhoos, hope you enjoy her, a very fun and basic figure.  One of the reason I like old school minis as I've mentioned before.  She strapped on her armor, grabbed her blades and took off.  No ladening herself with bags, sacks and knick knacks.

      Quick and easy speedpaint. Thanks for looking!

      In my quest to paint up every race class combination, I tackled this fun mini from Oathsworn Miniatures.  One bad thing about pre-painting dragonborn is that they have unique powers based on their dragon color, so how likely is it that someone want to pick this mini in blue for the character?  Oh well, another one down!
