Ogres and goblins! Bones 3 (77454, 77455, 77456, 77444, 77445, 77566, 77567, 77568)

I love the shared color scheme between them, particularly the blue arm wrap on the one ogre makes me think some unfortunate goblin got a little to feisty and was made as a constant example to others. I also really like how you managed to work in so many different colors on figures that I would have felt fell into just different shades of brown. my favorite three are the large drum, the rusty armor on the ogre chief and that spectacular banner.

Those are ridiculously good. The way everything ties together is spectacular, and that's some of the best rusty armor I've ever seen.

Great Warband!

 

I do like the colours a lot!

The Goblins are looking wonderful in blue!

 

No idea why Buglips hates them, blue suits them!

Maybe he's just jealous..

Great skin on all of them! I like the little touches of blue on each mini that ties them all together. Nicely painted!

Thanks for the support all, I wasn't expecting that kind of response! I'm glad you all seem to like the colors - maybe I was a bit too close to the project to see it objectively.

 

Painting them all at once certainly helps me tie everything together. Plus, minis just look better in bunches. Taken individually, each has its flaws,  but as a group they look pretty seamless.

The rust is actually super easy and fast to do; I'll share a recipe at some point. I enjoy painting metals so its something I've toyed with for many years.  

I'll work on fixing that goblin image tonight. for some reason the formatting is all goofy.

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
       
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.
       


       
      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
       
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...
       



       
      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.
       


       
      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      This was a repaint from earlier this year. I bought Quickshade Strong Tone for speed painting some of my board games and tried it in Woody. I liked the way it worked for the most part but as you can tell I got some frosting when I matte coated it. Another thing that happened was my paint cracked on my base but I kinda like the way it looks. I probably won't bother fixing any of the issues as I moved on to another figure I am struggling with.

      Done. Tried a new technique for me with very dark green base acrylic with the skin tones on top. I kinda like it.

      Fun and quick one for RCL new release. Have been aiming for a more dull/gritty looks wtih a lot of my recent figures.

      Back in November I posted over on the Conversion WIP sub-forum about a mounted figure I was making using the Bones 4 Giant Rhinoceros Beetle and the Mudcroak Squog figure: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93699-frog-riding-beetle-conversion/
       
      This past week I finally got around to painting the converted figure, and I  wanted to share the results.
