Owl Bear 44001 + Ankheg 77230


Recommended Posts

Some basic table-top paints here,  The owlbear paint is (more or less) a straight up copy of the Reaper website example but i think the base is interesting.  It starts off basically as a rock/gravel pile, and I thought it was rather boring so i turned it into the Owl Bear's cave floor covered in feces about an arms length deep. Practiced some sculpting on it. With P3 putty The big rocks were turned into Ogre skulls, a horse skull, and a face-down skeleton of some sad creature, all simmering in poo :)

The Ankheg, it's always a balance of painting something like for max visual appeal or realism, went with the latter since something that just burst out of the ground would be pretty dirty, at least on the side it's digging with. This is my own work, did not copy anything so in that regard I'm pretty happy with it.

For the back, went with a Game Color Dragon Green mixed with Filigree Silver, highlighted with a mix of bright yellow, Army painter Hemp rope, and a touch silver.

The Owl Bear fur is  Black Base + Citadel Rhinox Hide ,Game-color Woodland Brown and Dessert Tan layered in. Wings are Stormy gray lightening out Rainy gray  on tips. For some reason this model was really east to paint ,  it never fought back like some of them do, (probably because i coped a picture ;)

thanks, I'm really happy with it considering no formal training as a sculptor.

 

As many here probly already know, doing just one paint after another can get tiresome, so the sculpting, Dioramas, modeling/kit bashing are a really nice way to break up the monotony , get better, and keep it interesting. 

 

For anyone new to this hobby, i strongly urge you to get some putty, a set of tools(mine are army painter , 3 for $10) and give it a try. At this scale a tiny amount of putty goes a very long way and it's really satisfying when you get something like a horse skull , new weapon, or even fix a casting error/gap ,  or even miscast in a lead or plastic model = super rewarding.

      Here she is - she is an NPC in my campaign... friend or foe? Tried a darker skin but not sure I quite got it. Well, I was pleased even if her eyebrows are a bit odd.

      Alright.  So I want to share some old skeletons with you to both show off some of my older paintjobs, and to reflect on my growth over the past two and a half years.  An what better way to show off my growth in Bones, than with bones?

      I am not a fan of repainting old models or painting another copy of something I've already painted.  I have so many minis in my collection that I'd rather keep moving forward.
      That said, I love painting similar things.  It's a great opportunity to reflect on your past projects and to compare where you started to where you've come.

      I'd love to see some before and after photos of some of your works!

      For the RCL Zodiac Challenge  - the Taurus not one of the more creative choices like Libra or Aquarius. 
      It is my Adopted Star sign because if Horoscopes are at all useful it is when they make guesses at problems or opportunities based on the personality connected to the sign. 
      by personality I fit  like 3 of 4  tendencies, and 0 of 4 of my birth sign. 
       
      knocked this guy out in a few hours this morning.

      My kid loves stealing my dice.
      So I'm painting some High Rollers as a bday gift later this summer. Kid is not old enough to paint with a brush yet.
       
      Day 1 was saturday - priming and base coats on the bases and D'Tenian. Maybe my first painting this year?
