Here's a fun and simple one for you this week!
Owlbears are one of my favorite D&D creatures. They're just such a silly concept and I love them. Any scenario were I could use a bear, I swap out for one of these guys instead. However, despite owning several different owlbear models, I have avoided painting them for a long time out of fear of ruining them. Finally decided to give one a shot.

What kind of Owls should I use as inspiration next?
What mini did you put off painting for too long?
So, I recently purchased the "Nolzur's Marvelous Pigments Monsters Paint Set". Came with a bunch of Army Painter washes and paints and yadda yadda yadda...
But it also came with this neat Owlbear mini, which is what I have to share with you guys today!
First eyes I ever successfully painted. But in my defense, I'd only ever tried on minis with smallish eyes, which was NOT the brightest idea I'd ever had. The left eye turned out really good in my opinion, but the right one was a bit messy.
I also need to do so me touch-up work on the base. I got a bit careless with the wash, and uh... Yeeeeah.
Lastly and leastly, I didn't upload an outdoor picture as I usually do. That'll probably come later, provided I don't forget.
Doing the Young Owlbear made me want to do this old one as well.
This owlbear is the O.G. owlbear off the very first of the Reaper Bones kickstarters. It always was a bit weird and extra insane looking, quite different from other owlbears I have seen.
Also it was droopy and askew on it's base. I drilled into the leg from under the base and inserted a long rod to keep it stiff and keeping the talons off the ground. Straightened that c***er out,. Far too much as it turned out. So I glued the original base to the new one at an angle. Maybe the angle should have been even steeper as it is a bit up in the air.
At any rate, insane-looking owlbear = joker = clown = parrot. Time to break out the Napoleonic colours.
It's pining for the fjords! Beautiful plumage, esquire!
