Its like you are saying "Neodynium Magnets...Contemplate this on the tree of woe!"

 

This is the perfect application of magnets!

 

. ..but how did you construct the canopies?

I wrapped the boughs in aluminum foil, then put some magnets against the foil to press up against the magnets on the tree. Then I sculpted some canopy overlays using super sculpy, then baked the sculpy. Spray painted it green, drybrushed it with lighter shades of green and yellow, covered the outside with white glue, dumped a bunch of foam foliage chunks onto it, sprayed that with a watered down glue, then dripped various shades of green ink onto those...

 

I'm considering sprinkling some leaf scatter onto the canopies to add more definition to the leaves, but I'm worried it'll ruin them and they work fine just now...

      Half-ogre fighter from Bones 4!  Initially thought this model was going to be a gunmetal from top to bottom but it hides a surprising amount of variety with little patches of skin, leather, wood and...in my case at least, scales hidden throughout.  SKU provided is for the metal version, doesn't look like this fellow is getting a release outside the Kickstarter?

      Here's a fun and simple one for you this week!

      Owlbears are one of my favorite D&D creatures.  They're just such a silly concept and I love them.  Any scenario were I could use a bear, I swap out for one of these guys instead.  However, despite owning several different owlbear models, I have avoided painting them for a long time out of fear of ruining them.  Finally decided to give one a shot.

      What kind of Owls should I use as inspiration next?
       
      What mini did you put off painting for too long?

      Does anyone know if the two victim sculpts in the tree of despair set will (or are) ever going to be available separate from the set? I need a couple dozen. Thought about creating my own but id rather spend my money here first if possible. Alternatively is anyone aware of a reaper figure i could use as a substitute? Thank you all for any help.

      This is Mavaro, Iconic Occultist sculpted by Bobby Jackson from the Bone 4 Core Pathfinder Iconics II subset. This is now available on the Reaper store as SKU: 89051. He reminds me of a bard who went for oration as his talent.

      No painting... all magnets... 3x3 tiles. Creators have a few manufacturing KS under their belt, although magnetic tiles seem to be a new thing.
      Prices include shipping to most areas. 
       
      Anyway, watch the videos. The houses look a little clunky, but take a look at that tower in the last seconds of the intro video.
