I think there was a post on Carmen's Fun Painty Time that advised flattening green stuff over a convex Citadel paint lid. Or you could use one of those thumbtacks (though I think that might be more of a buckler than a shield at this scale).  

 

If y'do that, you'll have to sculpt the demon head on separate... but it could be done.

@Chaoswolf for the helmet you could try a Bones Hellknightś head or a GW Chaos Warrior one and use that either as a base for converting or as is.

For the demon head on the shield, cut a Bones Demon's head in half?

 

Maybe for the head look at the Lich King from the Graveyard Set from Bones III, his helmet looks a lot like Warduke's

 

Looking forward to where this goes.

I've already got ideas for both his head and the shield. In fact, the shield is already in progress.

This doesn't show that, but here's where he is currently. I think I'm almost happy with the boots, so I started working my way up.

I'm not too sure about his belt; if seems a little WWF to me. I may trim it some. Thoughts?

Yeah, I think it’s a little too large. Imagine what size you were planning on making the skull emblem. I think the belt part is right, but the circular front part could be trimmed back about to where that little bit of white is peeking through toward the bottom.

I think Guindy's right. Belt is good, but that front boss looks like he beat out Hulk Hogan for the champeenship.

Boots are awesome.

That's almost exactly what I was thinking.

I have changed it now.

Progress pictures tomorrow.

Absolutely no worries on that.

 

Here's what I did the other night:

Got the fur loin cloth done, and trimmed the belt a little bit.

And he's getting really close to being done.

The decoration on his belt is carved/sculpted from a piece of solder.

The sword and hand holding it are from a GW chaos space marine.

The head is from a GW fantasy chaos warrior with the horns removed and the batwings from this guy: http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Bones/latest/77408 added

Does the head/neck look wonky to anyone else, or am I being overly critical of my work?

If it looks bad, please be honest, I want this to be as good as I can make it.

 

 

Still to do:

finish shield

shoulder armor

spikes for shoulder armor and left boot

adding a dagger

deciding if I want to really test my GS skills and try to sculpt his necklace/amulet or not

general  smoothing/clean up

If I'm gonna be hypercritical, the only thing I can think of is that he's showing perhaps too MUCH neck. Then again, the helmet isn't really big enough to drop right down on his shoulders. 

NICE work with the batwing helmet.

I was going to say too much neck as well, at least compared to the 2nd reference pic.

One option to solve the too much neck problem is to sculpt more helmet (add some to its lower edge) and sit it down closer to his shoulders.  

 

(Somewhere in that last sentence Übër would have worked in the word thews <_< )

 

Try sculpting some amulets on a flat polypropylene cutting board to decide if you want to go for it. The head of a large steel sewing pin might be just the thing as the basis for the amulet.

Overall this is looking great.

Thanks for the feedback, everybody.

 

I google imaged searched various types of helmets, and it seems as though neck protection was mostly provided through the use of a Gorget, which Warduke  clearly does not have. I'm going to have to think on it a bit more, maybe try repositioning the head and see what I think.

I'm kind of curious how you're going to solve the color problem.

In the initial pictures you posted, Warduke's helmet, shoulder piece, and mail is BLUE.

 

This is feasible in the pictures, because they are cartoons. This is feasible in the action figure, because he's an action figure. 

Aaaand in the WOTC figure, and Wayne Reynolds' art, his helmet and armor is ... metallic silver. It took away some of the magic for me.

Are you going to go with metallics? NMM? Blue? The suspense is killin' me.

      Hi again, fine folks!
       
      So just finished this one last night, last part of course the shield, which took me a while to figure out, but who doesn't need a good squirrel shield?  Anyhoos, hope you enjoy!

      Two more members of my hill giant tribe, obviously the one on the left is the original. The one on the right has a totally seamless hair piece (!) and obviously a modified club based on one stolen from another giant. He also has a slightly more upright stance which required an extension of his furs and was probably more trouble than the effect is worth, to be honest.

      So, I just had to show off this pic.  I'm playing in a 5e Rappan Athuk campaign, and needed to make 3 characters.  I chose to model mine after the characters from the old Lost Vikings video game.  
       
      In order from left to right:
      Olaf the Stout, Life Domain Cleric.
      Baelog the Fierce, Totem Warrior Barbarian.
      Erik the Swift, Battlenaster Fighter (my main).
       
      Sorry, I just really loved this picture.

      This is one of my armies that I’m working on for Dragon rampant. Sadly there are not many pictures to post of it right now since I don’t have many models, yet. But a large portion of it will be made up of Reaper overlords units with a couple of minis from others brands thrown in. 
      The first one! This is an Overlords Onyx phalanx by Reaper minis. I needed to compare sizes with my hero before getting a full force so I sadly only have one currently.

       
      The other unit currently being worked on is a Wizkids Nolzurs triceratops that I am converting into a cavalry mount. I am using milliputt for the harness, and am planing to use paper clips to make the reins. I’m wanting to make it barded like a warhorse but I’m unsure on how to do it. Any suggestions?
      I hope to get my rider in here soon so I can start working on that part of the conversion.
      Thankyou for looking!

      This was my 2019 ReaperCon Open category entry. I took Shaelin, a female bard and converted her to a vampire hunter. I am very happy with how she turned out as these were the most intensive conversions that I have done before.
       
      Changes that I made:
      Removed hawk on shoulder
      Swapped lute for a crossbow
      Added hat
      Removed hood on cloak
      Added fur to cloak
      Swapped sword for crossbow bolt
      Changed cloak clasps
      Added overlap and buttons to tunic
      Added sleeves
