Hello everyone, I'm mostly done with the second Ogre, I just need to do some touch ups. It's clubbing time, the Ogre way! This one is the 77454, Ogre Clubber sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint.
77455, Ogre Smasher and 77454, Ogre Clubber
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.
Hello everyone, here is my converted Reaper Miniatures 01411, Harapan sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Back in 2005, this limited-edition model was produced to raising money after the Tsunami disasters in SE Asia. The funds collected were distributed to the Red Cross and Unicef.
Nowadays, this mini is very hard to find and the molds were supposedly destroyed after production. I was lucky enough to find one and spent all my free time during the last two weeks converting, painting it and creating a base for it.
I converted its weapon by replacing the blades with a cleaver and a tiger paw flail. You can see the original model on the last picture. The tiger paw is front paw of a 02817, Moor Hound. The tropical planted are plastic aquarium plants. I painted the blade as a damascus forged steel and added a blue/green sky and earth non-metallic metal SENMM effect on the metallic parts. I also added ceremonial painting on Harapan’s forehead. I have used Reaper MSP paint exclusively.
Got another one to submit, but still needs its base. Mr. Monk here was a pretty fast shot. I tried to keep colors as simple as possible (which may or may not have been left over colors from my owl bear I did) to just keep the paint moving.
* Used a flat flesh color with the simple Reikland Flesh shade wash. Combo worked well, but dude looks a little...odd. Will have to add more warmth next time.
* Brown hues and simplicity of the scheme helped.
* Really enjoying doing townsfolk because of the limited details I need to get into.
* Hair felt much better this time. Going with a dark brown, up to a mid brown, then highlight in the ridge of the hairline.
* @Inarah I used your method on rope on his belt. Worked!
* Playing with flesh tones and how to raise the contrast is very difficult for me. Without making it look...fake. I keep trying to find easier ways to do it, but I think it's just gotta invest to get the best results.
* Cape volumes didn't really pop. I was hoping for more depth in the contrast, but it didn't show through and I wasn't willing to push it further after a few failed attempts.
* Painting with bone white or ivory continue to plague me. Multiple layers needed because of the chalky pigment density. Anyone got a solve for this?
For a base, I'm thinking of including some kind of cross or something behind him. We'll see. I found some pretty nifty little wood engraved sets at Dollar Tree (loving that place more and more these days) that will work perfect. Speaking of which, I have a demon hunter I haven't based yet, that could use one of those, too. Hm...
