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.....

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
