A distinguished paint job for something that usually appears in mobs and is dispatched quickly. I second the compliment on the shield, and the lighting on everything works just right. I've never wanted to get to know a skeleton before.

I was shooting for a bit of a Harryhausen vibe.

How weird, I just passed up a copy of Clash of the Titans at Goodwill yesterday. Shoulda snagged it.

I have been agonizing over my bone colors lately. Your Deadite Lad is a SPLENDIDLY  painted Old Bone. Your colors & base are LOVELY as well. VERY WELL DONE!

I am glad you like him. Thanks for the kind words.

I love it, that base suits him well!

Good bone and rust.

 

One minor nitpicking, touch up the rim of the base, either black or an earth colour, but there are stains on it and that's bringing a great piece down.

@Glitterwolf yessir. After posting the pics I noticed it, and went and painted it a nice flat black. It's amazing the things you don't notice in person, but really pop in a picture.

Yes pictures are ruthless!

I like how you called it a simple base while it's an excellent little piece.

Gravestone, some fallen leafs, a unit with bases like that would stand out!

@Glitterwolf it really was simple though. Just a Sculpey gravestone I had laying around broken in half and some Apoxie Sculpt topped with blobs of resin sand built up around his broccoli base. The hardest task was making him fit on a 1" base, since I always prefer a bigger base :D.

      I don't do WIP's very often and I'm well into a couple of these guys. But I added a couple more as I started to base the first few so I figured I might as well. Maybe it will help me keep my focus. 
      We have the 3 bones ogres from a kickstarter or two ago, the bones black preview ogre, metal Kagunk 2, and the bones 4 ettin. I may decide to add metal ogre chieftain (aka kagunk 1) as well as he is half finied on the shelf anyway, and metal Norr'Okk, if I can ever figure out what to do about his head. 
      Also considering ordering the newer ogre chieftain, but we will see.

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       
      I started Kagunk, Ofre Chieftain a year or two ago.  
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.

      Hi all, my first post was answered by such warm and supportive folks I decided to have a crack at the ol' orc from Reaper mini training set #1. The left eye took me 6 tries (and twice that many curses.)  Really enjoying this new hobby, first time I tried was back in 1983 and it was a disaster.  Maybe patience does come with age.  :)

      I loved this sculpt from the moment I saw it. I absolutely could not wait to paint it. But I was intimidated by it for a variety of reasons. I didn't like most of the color schemes I initially chose, and repainted him several times. I wanted a decent base for him (I greatly regret not rebasing Cthulhu, for example), etc. etc.  
       
      But then things just kind of came together and I painted the beastie a little bit at a time over the past few days... and I'm really happy with the outcome!
       
      C&C appreciated -- this guy was unexpectedly challenging for me, so there's probably oppo for improvement here. :-)
