You there, fill it up with petroleum distillate, and re-vulcanize my tires, post-haste!

Great conversion and I really like the freckles; that's not something you see a whole lot on painted miniatures.:winkthumbs:

 

Thanks, a tad fiddly, but they give the face some interest.

Seamless conversion! Freckles are great as are the eyes - definitely full of character - well done!

 

Thank you, yes I like how the face came out. Statuesque heads are really nice.

I pulled out my painted copy of the original sculpt and decided I like yours better.  Very nicely done!  ^_^

 

I wasn't too happy with her boob window and leaf loin cloth. So I started cutting and ended up redoing the entire front.

Wow, I love the eyes.

 

Thanks, they even worked out with the first attempt.

Love the conversion! The mushrooms on the log are a genius touch. A drybrushing of rusty orange or scab red would really make them pop. Great work sculpting her outfit change, too--I know that's tricky even though you make it look easy.

I thought of an orange glaze, just to make them stand out a tad more. I didn't want them to be too much in your face, but they do fuse a bit with the log. 

 

Thank you, the sculpting was fiddly and I had to redo some sections . I learned quite a bit. Most important thing: ratio 2:1 yellow to blue makes it much easier to sculpt fine detail.

the face is amazing

 

Enjoyed the WIP thread too,  that's a pretty serious conversion

 

Sorry for the late reply and thank you for commenting. Usually my perception of minis changes after they are in the display case for a time. This one I still like, so I think the face was a success. The conversion was indeed more of a resculpt, but perfect to experiment.

That's a total makeover, almost a completely new model. You did an excellent work on both the conversion and the paint. I like the posture of her head, it makes it much easier to see her face this way. The original version of the model is facing down, probably because she is tracking a foe or animal, so her face is a little hard to paint. Which head did you use? I also like the mushrooms you added on the stump.

      Hello everyone, I'm mostly done with the second Ogre, I just need to do some touch ups. It's clubbing time, the Ogre way! This one is the 77454, Ogre Clubber sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint.

      Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

      Presenting Lysette, a mage from the Bones USA line by Reaper.
       
      Started on this one back in January, but got stuck on her dress so she spent a while in the Cupboard Of Unfinished Things.
      Unfortunately, my camera doesn't like her sky blue hair and it's really blown the colours out, she looks a tad better in hand.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      ....and when the last crumbs of hope were lost, from the deeps of the elven forest, came a heroine!
       
      Alright, this happened to be an interesting project. I'm guessing Fiara lost a bunch of details when going from metal to plastic bones.  At some point, I felt like there wasn't much to work with.  I ended up  free-handing some of the details.  Also, blacklining seemed to help quiet a lot.  I originally wanted to use metalics on the sword, but at the last moment decided for NMM.
      As always, all sorts of feedback is welcomed! 🙂

      P.S. For the love of God, I could not take a good picture of her! (or a picture that would satisfy my likeness).  So, I'm dumping a few extras in here.

      Since the Eye Beasts are making good progress, getting the next model ready.  A suitable Player Character model.  Turanil, Male Elf Paladin.
       


       
      The plan is white and red.  I’m hoping the peacock comes across as a Phoenix.
