Hi everyone, here's 02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman. This model was sculpted by Ben Siens. It’s mounted on a 40mm round base and was painted with Reaper's MSP acrylics paint.
After a major earthquake shook the mountain range of western Zenitonia, Skrug and his clan had no other choice then move. Their entire lair was destroyed in a dreadful collapse. Dozens of Bugbear died or were trapped under the unstable rubbles, survivors had to leave.
Has Hruggek abandoned his fateful worshipers? For, after traveling by night and hiding in a valley of the Vermillion Hills, the horde had to stop by the Lynx River torrents. There, they were decimated by a group of adventurers passing by looking for Belladonna berries. Only two families managed to escape the slaughter crossing the river on a makeshift raft.
Belladonna or Wolfsbane berries are very toxic, they are also an essential ingrediant to concoct the cure against lycanthropy. But this is another story.
Hello, just want to show you my last work: Khalith, Mummy Lord. He was sitting on the desk quite long now, fully painted but lacking a base. The past days I've found the time to give him a well deserved sandy base ^_^.
I was looking for him a dusty effect, some sort of ancient look, but still menacing. It came out a bit too cold, I think. Tried to balance adding some dry blood touch on the bandage and a dusty pink sash.
I still find him "monochrome", don't know why, but it seems is lacking something.
Enough talk, time to show you the pics.
Let me know what do you think of him and if you have any advice please feel free to write it down! :)
Sorry for the bad pic, I hope that are still readable.
Thanks for watching.
as said I`m painting at a lot of miniatures at the moment, but they are all still wip and I only make very slowly progress so don`t expect me to post updates in my wip threads quickly. I have to work much, sometimes no time at all for painting and because I`m working at so many different projects each develope rather slow.
Because you seemed to like especially my version of Astrid I decided to start with posting wip photos from my second version of Astrid.
Long story short: The first and already finished Astrid (please check out my homepage for watching her, or visit my "I`m back" thread) was a gift for a friend. After she was finished I gave her away, but I also liked her haha. I decided that I simply can make someday a copy of her so that I have got one too for myself
I started this copy before my break in painting and now I plan to finish her with time.
One thing is different and that is the freehand of the back side of the guitar. This is because I`m a kinda wild thing and so this one becomes "Metal Astrid" LOL. My friend wished notes and so I painted notes at the first version of her. I would have preferred a skull, but my friend didn`t like the idea. But this version is for myself and now finaly the skull can be painted.
Well, nothing is finished here. It is all wip.
Explanation: I always start very rough and unclean all over the miniature. I do not finish part by part, I always paint everywhere same time. My paintjobs look all the time unfinished until they are really finished. I start at completely "messy" and with time my wips become cleaner, cleaner and you can see how I build up depth and the highlighting. So don`t worry if you see a wip from me at an early stage, I work this way intentionally.
Feedback/help: Of course each kind of feedback is highly appreciated. Critique, praise, jokes, questions, tipps...I take it all Concerning painting I don`t need desperately help and advice although it seems that I do if you see my completely messy and unclean wips, but actually I know what I`m doing and mostly I have a determined plan concerning colourscheme, concept and so on. So don`t get cheated by the (partially) horrible look of my wips, it turns out smooth in the end and you see always just a temporary condition. But feel free to communicate your thoughts if you think something would look better in a different way or for the case that you have got cool ideas which matches well with my concept.
Concerning bases I do desperately need help!!! Definitely. I`m sad with how my bases turn out. I wish to improve. I hope I can learn here to build up better bases. I also need help when it comes to build anything for example with plastic card (polystyrene) and such. I hope that you can help me with this issue and I`m more than glad about tipps and advice in this matter.
Concept so far:
- Colourscheme same like the first Astrid, but skull freehand.
- I will take her off from the base she is standing on right now and I wish to make a cool base this time.
- I would love to make a stage, but I have no idea how, LOL.
- I plan to sculpt a "Marshall Amp" for her guitar
- I play with the idea to add the skeletal band by Ral Partha as her band LOL. I`m not sure about this idea.
- I plan to sculpt different things like beer cans, paper, zigarettes lying on the floor, maybe a microphone however. If you have got cool ideas in additon I would be glad to know.
Please let me know what you think about the concept and feel free to make own suggestions because all is open now. Nothing is done. I`m just painting at the moment.
Enough talking, here are the actual wip photos: Ooops I see my pictures are a bit blurry (or does the board compress the images). Next ones will be better at least if the board software allows. More angles of the miniature also follow later.

The Celestial Stag from Reaper Miniatures (03907). I painted this for a character in a DnD game that has a habit of shifting into a stag. I'm quite happy with the base.
