Hellborn Troll

from WizKids' Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures

 

I stopped at AC Moore today and picked up one of the FolkArt Pickling Washes I didn't have while my wife was shopping for school play costume materials.  Nearby I found FolkArt Ultra Dyes and picked up two colors to check out; Purple Rain and Pucker Up (a yellow).

I have enjoyed using the Glass Enamels with the long cure time before and thought these might work similarly.   I decided to wash my troll with the Purple Rain to see how it comes out and goes on.

It's fairly thick out of the bottle but I might not have shaken it enough.  It was taking forever to dry so I hit it with some Testors Dullcote to speed the process and reduce the shine.  It's glossy like inks.

 

Next, I used Reaper Blood Red to give him the Hellborn look I wanted.

Then I pulled out Reaper Violet Shadow to get his hair, teeth and claws darkened.

I then went back over the boney bits with the FolkArt Ultra Dye.  It'll put the glossy touch to the claws and teeth.

 

I am quite happy with him so far.  

 

Stay tuned and Enjoy!

I've done similar skin tones with my Fell Ogre.

 

And the back of the Reaper Hellborn Troll.

 

I like alternate skin tones or suggestions of different heritages like Kagunk, Ogre Chieftain (Son of the Magi).

 

Thanks for the links, Thrym. I like a variety of skin tones also. You have some beauties in the trio.

Okay, I did his legs the same way as his torso.  The log is Reaper Dragon Red, the Reaper Griffon Tan and finally Reaper Red Shadow.  The ground is Reaper Rotting Wood.

Here are some quick pics I took before heading to bed.  Will get the studio back out for better shots and a rundown of paints tomorrow.

      I painted this guy up for D&D to be my Warlock. Sadly it may be some time before he fills that role again. Photos still look a bit washed out. :( The Base should look like floorboards and they do in person.

      my second dragon for the month.  I didn't put a huge amount of work into this one.  one of my goals was to see how well the contrast paints would work to bring out the basic shading and normal tone for the dragon hide rather than having to hand paint all the scaling.  It didn't work too badly.  I did wind up having to do some significant highlighting and I had to do some additional shading work on the underbelly but overall the effect was pretty good for the time spent.  I probably should have done more with the wings but I just didn't have any inspiration for them.  the sections were pretty small and very flat.  I might go back and do something but for now just blue is where this young guy is.
       
      I did find the base to be pretty cool.  Hope you like him

      Disciplined like a hobgoblin, I'm staying home painting some stuff. Here's a Chainmail Miniatures model 88349, hobgoblin fighter I completed last night. This model was sculpted by Mike McVey and produced by Wizards of the Coast in 2001 for the Drazen's Horde faction. I used Reaper’s MSP acrylics to paint it. Stay safe and disciplined.

      Last new show off from me for a while.
       
      I finished him a while back.  
      His WIP is here.

      I initially wanted to paint orange.  That got me thinking of a sunset color scale.  It came out OK, but the process was harder than I thought it would be.  Also, I’m trying to go through old Bones faster, but this was taking too long!
       



      A shot of his Fireball scroll.
      I went with burnt out candles to avoid needing to worry about OSL.

      I tried to pattern the feather as an owl feather.
       
      Hope you like it!
      C&C welcome.
