It's already looking good with just the work you've done to it so far, I'm going to enjoy seeing your progress.

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

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

 

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.

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!

 

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.

I love the broken glass!!!

 

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

      Overview
       
      I'm working on a conversion for my partner's character in our Swords and Wizardry campaign. She's a half-elf rogue with red hair that dual-wields swords, but unfortunately Reaper doesn't sell an exact figure of that type. There are a couple of other figures that might have worked but we both really liked Lanelle's base, so I took on the task of converting her to wield two swords and carry a shield on her back.
       
      The sword conversion wasn't too difficult; I bought three copies of Lanelle so I could take the sword from one and have a third as a back-up in case I messed something up. I carefully snipped off the sword, and used a pin vise to attach it. I used the baking soda and superglue combo to patch up a few small gaps. The shield was harvested from a 77024 goblin mini, and has a little pin in it which will attach to her back. I'm keeping them separate for now to ease painting.
       

      The original figure; this is the backup.
       

      The successful conversion; the red hair is stained from a previous attempted paint job that was removed with Simple Green.
       

      You can see the gaps a little on this side, but they've very minor and I believe paint will help disguise it later.
       

      There are no visible gaps on the outside.
       

      The shield will be attached right in the center of of her back; if positioned correctly I think it'll
      just reach the sheath on her belt and give the illusion that the dagger is just hidden behind the shield.
       

      The donor shield and unhappy goblin; I think this mini will make a nice battle-scarred goblin with a tragic past.

      And a third NPC - his day job is boatswain, so I wanted the armor to not be full plate.... he's currently helping the party do a fetch quest for the captain. I'm pretty satisfied with what I got out for what I put in - but I do notice I seem to have forgotten his eyebrows!

      The term was introduced into evolutionary biology by L. A. Borradaile, who described it as "one of the many attempts of Nature to evolve a crab".  1916. 
       It is believed to have independently occurred 5 times. 
       
      or a wizard did it. 
       
      this was a 45min conversion at reapercon hobby hijinx tables. Made from an angel, drider and flail snail, painted as hermit crab. 
       
      if I did another, it would be easier to paint the drider as a sea-elf instead of adding a new mini.   Not sure why I would want a second, but it was fun to make!

      Hello everyone, I'm mostly done with the second Ogre, I just need to do some touch ups. It's clubbing time, the Ogre way! This one is the 77454, Ogre Clubber sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.
