Last year @Pochi painted me a barbarian as an exchange fig. (located here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80953-spring-exchange-brand-oathblood/&tab=comments#comment-1717270).

More specifically she painted me a barbarian inspired by the song Holy Diver by Dio (I tend to put odd things for inspiration in me exchange forms).

I liked him so much that I based my current 5th Ed. character off of the fig.  Now Pochi's fig is far too precious (my precious!!) to go on the gaming table, so I've been using a bare Bones version with the intent of painting him "any day now".

Now that we've hit 7th level, I'm actually getting around to paint something.  But, since I need him for the weekly game, I'm painting an alternate version first, then I'll swap figs and work on the Brand Oathblood version.

So I'm starting with 77373: Cuth Wolfson, Barbarian.


This will depict Dio wielding his mighty great axe, Eloise.

Now Cuth's default axe was a touch....limp, so I dug out the Bones III weapons pack and picked a nice stiff replacement.




Much better.  Now just a little putty to fill in the gap and he'll be ready for his bath before linering.

Managed to squeeze in a bit of painting.

Threw on some brown liner last night.



Cleaned up some of the worst mold lines, and tried to do something with whatever happened to his right hand.
Then some base coats. 


Trying out the bronze skin triad.

Lots of browns.  Not sure if I should make the furs grey or something or if keeping it all brown makes more sense.

It's like he's wearing an oven mitt with real fingers and all of the pad is attached to his right index finger.  I tried to use paint to hide it.

As long as the colors are distinct enough at arm's length, leaving everything brown should be fine.  Making the furs grey may increase contrast between them and his belt.

Well, our missing party member should now be back from Florida, so I expect we are back to 5th Ed. this week, so I guess I'd better get this guy done.

After watching this week's Reaper Live, I was motivated to get working on his skin, and ended up using most of both the Bronzed Skin and Tanned Skin triads.


Unfortunately the pics killed the contrast a bit, but I'm pretty happy with how the skin went, as human skin is not my strong suit...



Hopefully I can get a couple more sessions in and get him finished in time to seal before Monday night.

And I think he's read to get sealed this afternoon.


I think he came out decent for what was supposed to be a speed paint. Probably 4-5 hours total on him (not counting prep and weapon swap).


I should probably roll up a backup character. Now that I've got a painted fig I'm sure robinh will find a way to kill him off.....

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Just a random assortment of the first painted from Bones V.  I sort of cheated...my Kickstarter arrived yesterday but I borrowed these in advance from a friend who got theirs earlier.

      Finally got around to painting some Bones sci-fi... painting the flat panel armor was a new thing for me. Used a mix of Reaper, Vallejo, and Contrast Paint, and some washes here and there..

      This looks fantastic!!  Beautiful artwork on this Sword and Sorcery RPG.  Get in on the last 16 hours and help make it happen.

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 

      One down and thousands to go! 😀
