Very nice. I'm a fan of mohawks for bald minis.

 

How did you get the hair texture?

 

Hi, I have used the hair from a bloodbowl dwarf slayer, I just cut it with an exacto knife, filed it a bit, pinned it to the orcs head and filled the holes with greenstuff which i then tried to make hair texture on.

I have also painted the now bald slayer as well

I love the 2-handed mail you gave him in replacement of the axe.  Did you sculpt that yourself or is it another conversion?  Either way great work!

 

Thanks :D, for the handle I've used a warhammer savage orruk spear and the head of the hammeris from the warhammer chaos warriors pack. I have filled the holes with greenstuff and also sculpted parts of his forearms I felt were missing.

 

Here are some photos of the conversion in progress:

The Avatars of War Berserkers have separate mohawks for their bald heads.  I've found them very useful.  Sawing off that whole mohawk must have been some bit of work!

Yeah, i figured that out too after purchasing some avatars of war minis, but at that time I was already done with converting the hair. I agree, it might have taken less time, but "transplating" the hair from one pewter mini to the other was honestly a lot od fun and I might do it again. ::D:

      Since I got a bunch of Bones Ghasts from Bones 2... or was it 3?  Bones 4? Whatever. But I wanted to do something to make them all a little different. So a few simple cuts, and a couple of drops of glue... and I've got some variety in my Ghasts.


      Now to paint them!

      Hey, all!
       
      Over the course of Bones 5, there were a few models that I was hoping for. I would say that Reaper totally exceeded my expectations and covered about 90% of my personal hopes. One of the things that wasn't in there was an Azer. For those of you who don't know, an Azer is a creature from the plane of fire, and they resemble Dwarves. They are so hot that their heads are covered in flames, and often this heat causes their weapons to be set aflame as well.
       
      Since I had an extra Dark Dwarf Pounder from my November order, I figured that I'd try my hand at a conversion. I have exactly zero experience with sculpting other than filling gaps or making a rock or two, but I have YouTube, so why not? The first thing that I did was get the model and choose a base to put it on. I went with a simple flagstone base from Secret Weapon.
       


       
      Next, I shaved off and filed down the little "3 Nail" sigil that these dudes wear. I like that Sigil just fine, but its more representative of Duergar than an Azer, so off it comes. I also clipped away the oval base and filed the feet to be flat.
       

       
      Next, I washed the model and pinned it to a cork. I also washed the base and drilled a hole for the pin, and then stuck that on a cork as well. Once the model was dry, I mixed up some Green Stuff and followed along with a step-by-step for fire that I found online. Basically, you start with a cone and stick it down. I put it on the Dwarf's head, and then used a thin tool to push down the edges of the cone into the head and shoulders. Then, I used tweezers to twist and pull the top of the cone into a sort of whirlwind. Then, dipping the tweezers in water to keep them from sticking, I took sections of the Green Stuff and pulled outward and twisted. Once I had the flames the way I wanted them, I went back in with the tool and made more indentations in the fire. I did the same thing with the flames on the weapon.
       


       
      I'm waiting for him to dry and cure right now, and then I'll get on to priming him and painting him up this weekend! Stay tuned!

      Thanks to a friend's encouragement I finished my Orctober project just in time.  
      It may only be one lonely Shaman but he still counts!
       
      Technically also my first Bones V miniature painted since he was one of the monthly preview promos.
