Nicely done! I love this mini, and you've really done great work with him. I love the weathering on him, and the colors in his armor look fantastic!

A fabulous paint job! The cape is excellent, but the freehand on the shield is quite amazing. I haven’t tried freehand yet, but if I do 10% as good as you, I will be happy.

Thanks guys, I'm glad you like it. It's the first time I try to paint an armor this way and I'm pleased about the result. It isn't too shiny, perfect for a veteran warrior.

As for the shield, I was going to paint two Fleur de Lys, and then decided to paint a boar head after looking at some inspiring heraldry symbols.

As I said on Facebook, I think you have done a great job and the added details like the claw marks on the shield are wonderful!

You captured the feel of a grizzled old Veteran from his unshaven face to his battered shield & his well worn armor. Your color choices make the miniature. WONDERFULLY WELL DONE!

Exceptionally good work on the armor and the clothes. I really love the look of the metal and how you achieved the clean lines of the bag and the clothes.

 

I am not entirely sold on the cloak, but I haven't figured out what bothers me, yet - and I absolutely can't get over his face. It immediately draws my attention and I think: Hm - this looks ... wrong somehow.

It looks a bit like a color variation of his tunic. Or an unshaven orc having a yellow fever rush. I simply don't like it. The execution however is really good.

      Every so often, a model catches my attention. Sometimes because it is excellent and inspiring, sometimes because there is something off about it. Sometimes the model is both.  Here is one such example:

      Yeah, it is the angle of the buckler thats just wrong. It simply should not happen. It triggers my OCD.
      This is the "Gnoll Warrior" from the "Thank You pack" add-on in the second Bones kickstarter. During the kickstarter it was presented as a line concept drawing and as is usually the case, the resulting miniature ends up slightly different. Still a perfectly good representation of the original concept art, but anyhow.
      That said, I do understand that one-piece castability requires certain angles and alignments for the mould to work, and to get the detail in the shield to show it cannot be sideways in the mould. There have been plenty of examples of minis in strange poses and/or holding things at strange angles because of this.
      This Gnoll is also stylistically rather different from the other Gnolls Reaper makes in Bones, perhaps it's just not so comic-like?
      But I ramble.
      The other day as I yet again was perusing the Drawers of Doom™, I picked this one for the painting table. But first it got to meet Mr. Scalpel for a field amputation followed by a quick rotation and graft:
      One drop of superglue later the case of the misaligned buckler was solved.
      Add a base and some paint:

      Good thing classic Bones material is really easy to slice and reposition. Such an excellent material for convertions as well.
       
       
       

      Jagged white parallells of sharp fangs emerged into the campfire light, then a staring yellow eye. Inquisitive, roughly probing clawed fingers followed. Snorting, foul breath enveloped me, causing me to gag.
      It jerked its beast-like head back, loud barks of mocking laughter spraying spittle in my face as I tried to stand my ground.
         "I smell fright, little man", the gnoll rasped out at last. "Why's that parlay-totem here?"
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      It has been a while since I painted anything. A combination of my arms acting up again and my just not feeling it. Call it the recurring fallow season.
      So I am getting back on track with some Orcs.  These are partly from the first Bones kickstarter and partly from the third. All together a nice band of 10.
      There are nine different orcs that are variants made on only two basic bodies, plus a singular warchief that I think fits in with the lot of them.
      I originally based them on 40mm round bases with sloped edges, the thinner-than-citadel knockoff ones. But there was always something not quite right about them, the bases were simply too large for the minis. So off they came. I ended up with making 37mm 3D-printed ones instead. I think they fit well on these minis.

      lots of pictures below

      Durgam Deepmug, one of several figures I picked at random to paint for table use during the early weeks of covid-19 lockdown.  I tried a little magical/ ice effect on his sword.

      Presenting Sir Shelly from Knightmare Games. Sometimes the path of Chaos offers great power, and sometimes you end up needing to stay constantly moist or you die.
       
      Really enjoyed painting this one, he's just so weird looking!
      Still can't paint gems though.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
