here is the objective :

and the description :

 

The king of the evil Fomorians is a hideous giant with an eye in the middle of his forehead. When this eye is opened, it shoots forth a poisonous beam that destroys everything it touches. Balor’s hatred of the Tuatha De Danann knows no bounds; in Irish myths, the Tuatha and the Fomorians fought an endless series of wars. He was killed by Lugh of the Long Hand at the second Battle of Magh Tuireadh (Moytura in English); Lugh’s sling stone drove Balor’s eye to the back of his head and turned its deadly power against the Fomorian army, which was destroyed. Lugh then cut off Balor’s head, which fell to the ground face-down; Balor’s eye burned a hole in the ground, which became Loch na Súil ("Lake of the Eye") in County Sligo.

Oh, that will be very nice indeed. So, Balor is the king of the Fomor, AND almost certainly the inspiration for the Beholder's eye-beams and disintegration ray? Strong credentials!

      I finished my Leisynn conversion. Took ages, especially with a new baby boy in the house.
       
      That said, I am fairly pleased how he turned out. I changed the entire front and head area of the miniature and gave him a more sensible staff.
       
      I think contrast could be increased overall and the subtle freehand on his robes was difficult. I will need to practice more with future minis. 
       
      The illumination in the book turned out ok, but I came to the limits of my current abilities. It is based on a medieval illumination. Anyone can guess what it is? One hint: the horned one is involved.
       

       

       

       
      C&C very welcome.

      Nearly finished with this mini, a male necromancer that I have converted to a female with a head swap. The mini is like a fishing weight, really heavy, and the flow of the robes and skirts in my view helps this look OK as a gender swap. Also, the original Callus mini has a long sculpted pony tail which would have been hard to file off but was easy to connect to. 
       
      I have no idea how I got a large hard to disguise paint blot on the scroll...

      I constructed this in the 2018 Bones Mash-up at Reapercon.  The wings do not go with the body, and one of the arms is not original.  I forget what the weapon was but I cut it off the bone handle and added a wicked looking blade from my bits box.  He was kind of boring all in grey and white, so I added a dab of blood, and put some orange into his bat wings.   He's on a Secret Weapon base that has added sand to fill in weird gaps.

      My first time posting to this forum, please let me know if I misstep :p
       
      Reaper Bones Black: 44002 Rock Troll
       
      I added a more rocky base using rock and some plastic crystals carved from leftover plastic sprue. Also added some more crystals to his elbows and side. The elbows were just because I thought it would make it look more menacing but the one on his side was because of a huge hole leftover from the moulding process. To take care of assembly lines I used some of the rock I cracked apart for the base.
       
      I still have the belt and pouch to do, along with the base and some smoothing if blends in his muscles. 
       
      Feedback and CC most welcome!!!

      Converted this one by using an avatars of war pit fighter body and added some greenskins bits (sword, head, etc) and greenstuff. Painted him to be used as an orc boss in my orc warband. Hope you like him!
