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.

Part of my Horde of the North Project.
Here she is.
For those interested she is a free sample on Thingieverse.
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.
So here is one of two converted Kang, Half-Orcs (02514) I've done. Pretty sure I posted the other one around here somewhere...maybe I'll try to dig it up later for a side-by-side.
Anyway, here goes:
Kang Half-Orc converted to carry a Reaper Bow in his left hand and a battleaxe in his right (the plastic Bones 3 weapon sprues). Also has a shield (a GW bit from a really old Brettonian knight) and a GW quiver (Mordheim / Empire free company). Shield painted purple and yellow because I like color and I get bored painting "realistic" neutrals & darks & such. As always, my mini photography skills are complete butt thanks in part to using a really cheap light box and a really cheap camera phone.
99% reaper paints: Olive triad mixed with scholar flesh, pure black and white, woodland brown, ashen brown, white metal triad, various washes.
This mini actually has kind of a weird story.
This mini represents my character Zarkosh Bowyer in a short Wildemount campaign. This campaign is being played 100% online thanks to COVID-19, so he is 100% unnecessary. Same goes for another mini I painted (Duke Gerard in Bones and Metal) which was for a DIFFERENT 100% online campaign. But that's only part of the backstory.
I actually BOUGHT this miniature back in like 2004. I bought two of him - my friend & roommate and I decided to play Barbarian brothers from the same tribe. I converted and painted mine to carry a war hammer and a shield. My roommate never got around to doing anything with his, and so it went back in my "Someday" box.
For sixteen years.
Anyway, I finally got around to doing something with the mini - hopefully, Zarkosh does better in this campaign than the previous character incarnating the mini did in his!
May come back and tidy up some edges & half-tones, may not. Don't know how much more time I want to give this one. Probably won't get TONS better than it is now, so here we go.
