Not an original color for Ragnaros, but I like the direction things are headed. The bulk of the plate is done, and other parts are just blocked or primed. The base is also just at stage 1, dirt grime, bones etc to come. Critiques are welcome at any stage.
I think the shoulder edges will be gold (brass, copper and other options are still on the table at this time). I'm going to go with glowing green for the eyes, and a gold crown (flames an option), but we'll see...
My first Reaper Forum post! Please give constructive criticism if you have any suggestions!
At first I was going to make this dark priest Caucasian, but then decided to go for a “Abdul Alhazred” feel, complete with human flesh scroll and inscribed in blood.
I am glad to be on the forum and will post more on my extended “sinister graveyard cult” that I am working on!
Some of you are old enough to remember the old Dungeons and Dragons toy line from way back when. In that toy line, they featured an evil fighter named Warduke. He also made one appearance in the cartoon, and was given stats (more than once) for use in the pencil and paper RPG.
I have decided to make/convert a copy of him for myself.
This is who I'm talking about for those that don't know, or remember:
He got brought back for 3.0 or 3.5 edition D&D, too:
Now, that's some pretty cool artwork, and my apologies to Mr. Reynolds, but it's wrong. Warduke is LEFT handed.
Anyway, now that we all know who I'm talking about, I chose the Bones version of Goldar : http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/goldar/latest/77047
to use as the base for this project.
And this is what I've gotten done so far:
Hand removed for a weapon swap, left arm armor sculpted with GS, started reshaping the left boot.
Left home in a hurry for a family emergency. Grandfather having heart trouble so I’m hanging out with him helping out.
I didn’t bring any minis or paint so I found a local game store and picked up a few. I went to hobby lobby and michaels for some brushes and paint.
The paint was extremely cheap but hey if it doesn’t work out I can do something else. Space for travel is super limited (motorcycle) so I don’t want much to carry.
I brushed on some foundation white from model color. Since I don’t have any skin tone I had to experiment making it. I am happy with the results. I’m not quite sold on the color for the armor yet.
