I got this guy through the ReaperCon Live 2020 swag box. I originally started painting him during ReaperCon Live that year, following along a class on how to paint a starscape cloak. I failed that class miserably since I didn't actually have the paints I needed(Reaper Clear paints), but I decided to redo it now with my own technique(and also with those paints, now that I have them).
Most of the clothing I painted back then, using some shades of blue. The hood piece/cowl I painted up with a brighter blue, to separate it from the rest.
I've mainly used Reaper paints for this miniature, but also some AK paints for the skin tones. The Magenta Reaper Clear paint has been heavily used for the OSL.
There is some stuff I would've changed if I hadn't done half the painting a year and a half ago, but overall I'm quite happy with how he turned out.
Hey everyone, here's an heavy armored fellow ready for adventure. 07011, Borin Ironbrow the Dwarf Adventurer was sculpted by Bobby Jackson. He was initialy part of the Dungeon Dwellers line. Hopefully, he will make the jump and eventually be integrated into the Bones USA line.
I am happy to present my entry to the 18th quarterly contest. I worked hard to achieve a nice contrast, using texture, complimentary colours and value. Another focus was the cavern base and the water and splash effects. I am happy how he turned out, but comparing him to the top four trolls I also know that I need to push myself even more. I guess that is what it is all about.
Given the metal version is NSFW I include some links that show him in his full glory.

Considering this is a Reaper forum, I don't post nearly enough Reaper stuff!
Going to try remedying that by slowly going through that big box of Bones V I've got perched on top of my stack of unpainted things.
I'm starting with Hercules (Didn't expect him to be my first choice, but I have been watching a lot of Greek Myth stuff on Youtube lately):-
This is after I've prepped him, primed him, had a second go at the mold-lines (I'm trying to get better at this), re-primed and finally given a Brown Wash.
Got a little problem going on with his right arm, from the back it's all bulging muscle, but from the front the gap between his bicep and club is filled in with something. Not sure how to fix this, so I decided to paint it as part of his lion cape (And hope no one notices the two halves don't line up).
Huh, mystery solved. Looking at it now in these piccys, I can see that weird bit of arm is actually his thumb.
Painted his lion cape first (I'm a messy drybrusher).
This was a base of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow, then a Brown Wash, then drybrushes of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow and Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Bonewhite.
While the mane and tail end were a base of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown, Brown Wash and drybrushes of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown and Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown/Bonewhite.
Finally, it got Bonewhite claws, Dwarf Skin paw pads and then everything got Sepia Wash.
While I'm on the computer I need to see if lions have special noses, if not then tomorrow I start on the skin of Hercules!
