Oils?  :wub:   Nicely done on the details!
And did you say a texture roller?  Are the broken flagstones greenstuff?

 

Yep, all done with oil paints (Winsor and Newton and Williamsburg brands to be specific).

 

The bits of flagstone are made out of Sculpey clay (Gray, Firm) with the Greenstuff World 'Temple' texture roller applied. I then simply broke some pieces from the sheet of sculpey and applied them to the base. They gray sculpey tends to stick less into the rollers compared to green stuff or the softer white sculpey.

Well!  I know what's on my holiday shopping list, then.  Thanks for helping me notice these!

nice work!  Can you share your paint recipe for flesh in oils?  that is one of the hardest things for me to manage.

 

Thank you - and certainly! For the shadows of the skin I started mixed a deep purple-red on my pallet, close to Reaper's Burgundy Wine. I used Ultramarine Blue, Quinacridone Magenta, and maybe a touch of Titanium White.

 

The midtone was Raw Sienna (Yellow Ochre).

 

The highlight I mixed was Raw Sienna (Yellow Ochre), Cadmium Yellow, and Titanium White.

 

The resulted in somewhat of a pale-tanned skin color. Afterwards once that was dry, I thinned down some Quinacridone Magenta and applied a glaze over the top to give it more pinkish warmth.

 

I essentially blocked in the sections where I wanted shadow/midtone/highlights, and then took a small dry brush and gently stippled the borders there those colors meet to get them to make a gradient.

      This is Thrasios, a triton ranger and one of the players in my D&D 5e Theros campaign. I built this mini in Hero Forge according to the player's description and added my own touches to it. For example, I was inspired by the neon tetra fish in painting the skin and I used Greek hoplite reference pictures to paint the armor.

      I don't really like this sculpt, they've cut corners too much for my taste, but as I painted Drizzt it grew on me. Has some kind of charm and I like it now  hope you will too!

      Finally I finished my conversion of Nienna Elfen Ranger. I pretty much changed every aspect of the original mini.
       
      New things attempted: Cloth textures and freckles.
       
      C&C very welcome.
       
      Areas to improve: Blends (smoother is always better), finer texture patterns, sculpt could be a little cleaner in some places.

      This is my version of a Games workshop Aragorn. I didn't want to paint him as Aragorn since I have two of these same minis so I decide to go for a purple skinned, white haired drow ranger.  I'm going to use him as a swordsman named Vigo in my Rangers of Shadowdeep games.
      This mini was a blast to paint, I like how the highlights turned out. Thanks for looking!

      So this is my first complete kitbash, this one is made of parts from five different kits. I've made it to be used as a ranger for my Rangers of Shadowdeep warband. Hope you like it!
