Presenting Graghuk, an Ogre I plucked from my big pile of Bones V stuff.
This is just a simple mini I've been poking paint at for the last couple of weeks, just to get me painting again, but I don't think he looks too bad.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
I'm supposed to be painting HeroQuest Goblins.
Which naturally means I'm painting anything else (Mystic Circle, Thing in the Well, Mumlak, and Demonic Lasher). But at least I'm painting!
First up was a bit of repair. Mumlak's adze was broken when it arrived, but a quick pin later and he's almost as good as new! I should have run the knife along the tusks while I was at it. But I didn't.
I wasn't sure where I was going with this guy, I was originally going to go with a dark brown for the bare flesh. But that just felt like it would be way too much brown for my taste. I eventually defaulted to the Neutral Greys triad starting at "Cloudy Grey" instead of "Stormy". I knew I'd be using the Stone Greys on the adze, so didn't want to duplicate colors.
The fur got a base coat of Pure Black and a dry brush of Muddy Brown, Earth Brown, Leather Brown, and Tanned Leather.
The tusks are, rather unsurprisingly, the Ivory Bone triad.
The skull topper on the jug and the femur are Bone Colors, the bird skulls will be the Neutral Bone triad.
Drybrushing, so much drybrushing.
Rainy Grey on top of the Cloudy Grey. Misty Grey on top of that. The finger and toe nails are solidly applied Misty Grey.
The tusks have gotten the rest of the Ivory Triad.
The adze got its Shadowed Stone and Stone Grey drybrushing.
The bird beaks are the Golden Skin triad. I don't know if the beaks should be more yellow than the rest of the skull, but that's the way I'm doing it.
The jug is getting the "Yellow Ochre" treatment. I think I'm going to use the Terran Khaki triad on the shells on the jug, although it looks halfway decent with just the liner/wash mix.
I still need to figure out the cordage, earrings, and "washers" on the cordage down by the jug. And there might be a surprise or two as well.
Thanks for dropping by!
I had painted Kallaguk first and wanted a darker feel (skin color) to this one as I consider them both marsh trolls with the fins. Not sure I succeeded or not but oh well I tried. hopefully after I finished those Ral gnolls my monster fetish will be over with (lol) and I can get back to painting PCs.
Oh yeah those are swamp vines on the base not him taking a dump, hehe.
"Opps", the owner of the shop said, "didn't I mention you have to kill them first."
The two marsh trolls I just recently finished; the cave troll was from one of the quarterly contests thou I never posted his pics afterwards. Was hard to get a good pic of their faces as both are looking down and they are so large thus wasn't able to crop my strip at the top from advice that DKS had given me when taking pics from my old camera.
