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.

      I really like this chap's air of melancholy as he trudges through a cold, damp marsh.

      Black on black, your standard sci-fi street-runner.  Gave his coat a touch of purple just to give the eye something to look at.

      Hello everyone, I'm mostly done with the second Ogre, I just need to do some touch ups. It's clubbing time, the Ogre way! This one is the 77454, Ogre Clubber sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Hello everyone, here is my converted Reaper Miniatures 01411, Harapan sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Back in 2005, this limited-edition model was produced to raising money after the Tsunami disasters in SE Asia. The funds collected were distributed to the Red Cross and Unicef.
       
      Nowadays, this mini is very hard to find and the molds were supposedly destroyed after production. I was lucky enough to find one and spent all my free time during the last two weeks converting, painting it and creating a base for it.
       
      I converted its weapon by replacing the blades with a cleaver and a tiger paw flail. You can see the original model on the last picture. The tiger paw is front paw of a 02817, Moor Hound. The tropical planted are plastic aquarium plants. I painted the blade as a damascus forged steel and added a blue/green sky and earth non-metallic metal SENMM effect on the metallic parts. I also added ceremonial painting on Harapan’s forehead. I have used Reaper MSP paint exclusively.
