The Owlbear's Picnic

Recommended Posts

Great work and the setting and story nail it! I'm sure one of them is smarter than the average owlbear and will abscond with that pic-a-nic crate!

Nice cohesive look to the family of owlbears. One of these things is not like the others.... but it seems like a perfect match stylistically with the smaller bones owlbear. Who makes that critter? Seems like too good an opportunity to pass up....

The smallest, leftmost owlbear is a 3d print (like the wagon) that my husband found on Thingiverse.  The other two are Reaper Bones.  I believe the model in the middle was from Bones 4, I could not find a number for it yet.

Your Owl Bears live up to their full potential; i.e., they are DELIGHTFULLY silly, & SPLENDIDLY painted critters. I LOVE the background foliage. VERY WELL DONE!

I can remember being a little boy & listening to The Teddy Bears' Picnic on the radio. It was a favorite then & a happy memory now.

I have not heard it on the air in a VERY long time, but I do remember the lyrics and they kept coming to me as I was painting that trio. 

 

Every owl bear, that's been good
Is sure of a treat today
There's lots of wonderful things to eat
And wonderful games to play

Beneath the trees, where nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as long as they please
Today's the day the owl bears have their picnic

      Here's a few random Bones minis that I've finished over the last couple of months.  I finally got around to photographing them when I finished the bookshelves recently.

      I didn't pick any of these up during the Bones II KS, but we grabbed a few during the 12 days promotion.  Love the detail on these and can't beat the Bones prices!  They work really well with DwarvenForge Game Tiles and I wanted to get them painted in time for the City System KS shipments.

      This was a pretty quick paint job.  I had initially planned to do more with him, but after finishing a few basic steps, I looked at it and said, looks good, don't mess it up!

      Another simple paint job.  I painted him quite awhile ago as he was a test piece to see how different sealers worked on Bones.  I've had some poor luck with Krylon sprays (turn glossy over time, no matter how matte it looks initially), so this was a test with just testor's dullcote.  Definitely no shine months later, although not sure it really provides that much protection either.  Luckily, it's Bones, durable, and a simple figure, so I'm not concerned.
       
       
       
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Finally, my first show off post.  I am still trying to get the hang of taking pictures and am by no means a professional miniature painter, but I am pretty happy with this mini as a tabletop piece.  Enjoy.

      I was taking a stroll through the woods one day, and came upon a beast from the ancient days of BONES I, the Jabberwock!

      This guy had been mostly finished for a long time, but wouldn't stay upright.  I couldn't get a rod through his legs, so I wound up gluing the heck out of his tail to get it to stay to the base.

      My partner (FireElemental) requested monsters, action poses and colors.  The Owlbear fit 2 of them perfectly, it just needed more color.   Plus the idea of taking one of the silliest D&D monsters and making it even sillier really appealed to me. 
       
      Basing is supposed to evoke its jungle home.  I watched tutorials on doing jungle terrain  but without trees I'm not sure it gives the full jungle feeling.  
       

       
       
      but many others were talking about what they were sending and a single bones figure seemed kinda small.  I saw another person had sent spiders, but everyone who ordered Bones 1&2 has a huge bunch already, but almost no one has the giant cockroaches from mice and mystics.   I took liberties with the red one, but the green resembles a German roach and the brown and yellow are normal variants.
      I chose basing colors to match the figure to so camouflage and to make them more easily identifiable on gaming table.
