Superb work chris and I do recommend painting everything separately except for the last highlights(speaking from xp on this model)

That really is a COOL piece; AND your conversion work raises it to an even higher level of cool.

It is so much easier to see all the details now that you have it base coated. Have FUN wit the Beasty!

Thanks, Chaoswolf!  Glad you like it so far.  Now I just have to figure out what to do next! ::P:

Thank you, Limey!   Thank you also for the suggestion.  I think that is the way I'm going to go; in fact, as I was thinking about it last night, I think I'm going to push through and finish one arm just to get a feel for what I want to do start to finish, before I plunge in and start applying more colors and inks and such to all of it.

Thank you malefactus!  I'm looking forward to getting more done on it today.

Here's what I got accomplished today. I am working first on the left arm only.

 

     I first added some inks to the wood areas to give the look of various algae growths and slime.  I then base coated the coral, cannon and other iron work, lamp, and rope.

     I then applied a wash of Citadel "Nuln Oil" to these areas.  When that was dry, I highlighted the coral and rope, did some weathering on the lamp as well as add broken glass, and did rust effects on the cannon and other iron bits.

I'm calling this piece done for now.  Next, I will work on his right arm.

Thank you, Glitterwolf!  

I have to say I'm rather pleased with how that turned out myself.  I tried something, and it worked! ::P:

 

 

Today, while eagerly awaiting Bones 4 to launch, I painted up the right arm.

 

Like the left arm, I first applied some ink washes to look like algae and slime growth; then I base painted the coral, metal, and rope.

When that all dried, I gave those areas a wash with some "Nuln Oil" wash, and when that was dry I did highlights on the coral and rope, and rust effects on the metal parts.

Tomorrow I hope to tackle the legs and lower body section of the Revenant.

Today I got the lower body done.   As with the other pieces I've finished so far, I first added some inks to the wood areas to give the look of various algae growths and slime, as well as change the tone of some of the wood.  I then base coated the coral, iron work, some bronze pieces, barnacles, and rope.   There was also some starfish and other shells on this piece.

When that all dried, I gave any area I had painted a different color than wood a wash with some "Nuln Oil" wash, and when that was dry I did highlights on the coral, shellfish, and rope, and rust and corrosion effects on the metal parts. fullsizeoutput_20a9.jpeg

     Tomorrow I start the upper hull, which I'm both excited and nervous about.  That is the part that's really going to sell the model and the conversions I made to it; So I really want it to turn out good.

     Today I painted the top hull portion of the model.   This is the last piece i needed to complete.   I will now glue everything together and do the final clean-up work (tomorrow hopefully), and then I will post the final product in the Show Off forum.  Thanks to all of you who followed along!

 

     As with the other pieces I've finished so far, I first added some inks to the wood areas to give the look of various algae growths and slime, as well as change the tone of some of the wood.  I then base coated the coral, iron work, the bell, gold pieces, barnacles, rope, skeleton, and the succubus.   There was also some starfish, shells and other odds and ends on this on this section.

   When that all dried, I gave any areas I had just painted ( all the parts that wren't the base wood) a wash with some "Nuln Oil" wash, and when that was dry I did highlights on the coral, skeleton, succubus, shellfish, and rope, as well as rust and corrosion effects on the metal parts. I also picked out a few of the coins to highlight to help sell the idea of a pile of coins.fullsizeoutput_20d5.jpeg

Wow! This model is by far my favourite from the bones 3 KS (I have an unhealthy obsession with pirates and sea creatures) but your conversion really took it to the next level. I am hesitant to start this model. It's a little intimidating with so much detail and stuff going on. I LOVE the verdigris effect and rust on the metal bits you put in. I will definitely try that on mine! Why do I hear the song "under the sea" playing when I look at your model?! Amazing job. I can't wait to see what you do to the base (I hope you will share that too) :D

      Today I wanted to show off some cheap 54mm Vikings that I painted up as Frost Giants.

      I made these guys close to a year ago, and they were among some of the first larger sized minis I had worked on, so they're a little rough, and that's before looking at the quality of model, but if someone else is in need of a lot of giants like I was, then this might be useful to them!
       

       
      So these guys are from Tehnolog, a Russian miniatures company that I know very little about.  The minis are made out of a soft plastic like novelty toys you can buy with tickets at an arcade.  They also have abysmal detail.
       

       
      They're meant for 54mm wargaming, and I believe there's an intended game system that accompanies the line, but my goal was to get some cheap giants for D&D.
       

       
      They fit nicely on a 2in base, and could probably fit in with the smaller Reaper Bones giants, but they're definitely a little undersized.  I remedied this by giving them each a boosted base, with the leader getting two layers.  At a glance, they tower over a standard medium sized mini.
       
      The details were rough and there were some ugly mold lines here and there.  But they're serviceable.  They might work better as a half-giant if you want to use 5e's Huge Frost Giants.
       
      More pictures of each giant below the Spoiler:
       
      Tehnolog also has a few other lines of fantasy-esque minis if you're a fan of cheap minis.  I am still considering getting one of their other lines to convert into cheap-o Fire Giants.
       

       
      What's your favorite obscure miniature substitute?

      Ok, this is a mini that I made as a joke for a friend of mine. He GMs a lot of games, and has always been a bit fascinated by the fact that the Half Dragon template can be added to almost any kind of creature. Including ones that reproduce by dividing.
      Truly, the biology of dragons is a wonder.
      Anyway, he got to completely wreck the party with this Half Black Dragon Gelatinous Cube.
      I made it by combining some parts from an invisible dragon and gelatinous cube minis (both from Reaper’s Bones line). I used water effect for gap filling and a bit of sculpting, and added a little color with some thinned down paints. I wanted to give the impression that it picks up debris from the floor as it moves along.
      Except for the eyes, which are totally opaque so that they can show up. Seriously, I think they’re the only part that really shows up at all in the pictures, but you get the idea.


      In an unrelated project for the same friend, I found a really strange bit that I think is supposed to be the head of a dragon, but seriously looks like a half dragon spider. So that got painted too.
      Man, dragons really make some poor choices.

      Hi all.  Still relatively new to the forums but I'm going to try to show off my work more often.

      I was working on an arctic campaign before the pandemic hit and had already started work on a lot of suitable minis.  Not sure when or if that game will ever resume, but in the meantime I've got plenty of minis to paint!

      This time we have the Ice Troll.  I'm satisfied with this.  Especially proud of his ice chunk.  I've never been very successful painting ice or crystals before.

      Hope you enjoy!

      This guy as it turns out can be disassemble into pieces!
      Win for me, because I hate detailed undercuts.
       
      And I do not like the staff (fish/dragon)head.
      Does not fit the character imo.
      The red squiggly turned out verynice!
       
      FINISHED here!

      My next project is another ranger. I already have a cool male elf ranger, but thought it might be nice to add a female version. So going through the Bones minis I came across Nienna.
       
      Unfortunately her face detail was very shallow and detail was overall a bit hit and miss. I love the pose, though.
       
      Out comes the scalpel, greenstuff and bitz box.
       
      Two evening sessions later I swapped the head and weapon, shaved away some of the front detail and resculpted the area.
       
      I am not entirely finished yet, but soon I can establish the base colours.
