By Conan the Painter
I wanted Conan. and this looked pretty much exactly like him. I painted him up a month or two ago, and since I already posted my wizard today I decided to post Dantrag (Conan) today as well. Again, any tips or advice on painting or photographing will be gratefully accepted.
Here's a simple one for you today. Filling out my Demonic Army, we have a Barlgura, represented by an Ape Demon (77260).
He seems a little small, but it works. Painted him up quickly the evening before a game sometime last winter.

I've got more fiendish things to show you all, but this one is good for today.
Show me your favorite fiends!
My FLGS had a Brain-in-a-Jar, 77493, some months back, and of COURSE it came home with me. But then I hit a wall. The brain was enormous, far too large to fit inside a humanoid's head unless they were of giant size. Then, an epiphany! Inspired by this old pulp illustration and Wells's Selenites.
I also had an old grab-bag Pickled Punk from Paizo: a wretched, foetal thing in a broken jar. So, discarding the jar component of both minis, I did some minor brain surgery and put together this tripod-borne Martian, inerrant in its calculations, an intellect vast and cool and unsympathetic, its distended cranium overshadowing its feeble frame:

I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Grinding through the Bones 4 core set, we have reached the last two dozen....and a full dozen of those are kobolds! Soon there will be less than 10 left!
Today I did the Ape Attack! subset
I chose to go different paths with each of them. These are so big, I think they are more useful as individuals than as a team. After all, there is only so much you can to with three giant apes, one of which that for some reason seems to have joined the Roman legions.
And I was not kidding when I said they were giant apes:
They are twice the height of a man, and what looks like ten times the mass.
#83: The Great White Ape
Drybrushed from black with a series of offwhites, ochre, beige and greys, and a couple of skin tones on the nekkid flesh.
This one does double duty as an abominable snowman.
#84: The Barlgura
A barlgura is a D&D chaotic evil demonic creature of the Abyssal plane. Described as semi-intelligent and brutally violent, looking like an eight foot tall blue-skinned Orangutan with wickedly sharp claws. The model is of a much larger Gorilla...Well... close enough. Let's just call him King Louie and leave it at that. "Oobee-doo! I wanna beat up you-oo-oo!"
#85: Ingkay Ongkay
"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next." (Gladiator, 2000)
So, Reaper...Pray tell. What is it I am not familiar with here? In what context might I need a giant romanesque-armoured gladius-wielding ape exactly?
