I hadn’t noticed it before on FB, but the hair on Circe looks amazing!  It’s sculpted so beautifully, and I love the way it’s painted.  The different fur colors on the boars work really well too.  Everything reads as dark but you still have great detail and contrast.

Really beautiful work! I love the lighter color hair, the color choice compliments the dress very well. You did a great job of making the boars look menacing despite my failed attempt to turn down the cute! haha You did such a great job on this set, even down to the beautiful basing details. Excellent work!

Thank you! Like I said, I looked for descriptions and hair like "fiery rays" and being the daughter of Helios, I decided red was appropriate hair color. She is so delicate and pretty! And maybe the boars are cute because they were very handsome men before they were turned into little piggies!

The hair is sculpted so nice and is great to paint! She has tiny little looped braids and all of the flowing locks of hair. Picking out what was the laurel and was hair was a little difficult but I was able to refer to pictures to help me out! I didn't want to the boars to be too monotone so mixed in different browns and greys.

      Considering this is a Reaper forum, I don't post nearly enough Reaper stuff!
       
      Going to try remedying that by slowly going through that big box of Bones V I've got perched on top of my stack of unpainted things.
       
      I'm starting with Hercules (Didn't expect him to be my first choice, but I have been watching a lot of Greek Myth stuff on Youtube lately):-
       

       
      This is after I've prepped him, primed him, had a second go at the mold-lines (I'm trying to get better at this), re-primed and finally given a Brown Wash.
      Got a little problem going on with his right arm, from the back it's all bulging muscle, but from the front the gap between his bicep and club is filled in with something. Not sure how to fix this, so I decided to paint it as part of his lion cape (And hope no one notices the two halves don't line up).
       

       
      Huh, mystery solved. Looking at it now in these piccys, I can see that weird bit of arm is actually his thumb.
       
      Painted his lion cape first (I'm a messy drybrusher).
      This was a base of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow, then a Brown Wash, then drybrushes of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow and Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Bonewhite. 
      While the mane and tail end were a base of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown, Brown Wash and drybrushes of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown and Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown/Bonewhite.
      Finally, it got Bonewhite claws, Dwarf Skin paw pads and then everything got Sepia Wash.
       
      While I'm on the computer I need to see if lions have special noses, if not then tomorrow I start on the skin of Hercules!

      Helen the Spartan from Polish company Wargamer LLC (SKU HD-28-38) also managed to sneak into my painting queue ahead of my squad of half-painted dark elves.  Helen is from the
      Hot & Dangerous 2 Kickstarter.  I attempted a green marble floor, I think it came out ok.

      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.

      Here is my rendition of Pegasus, figure #516 in the Greek Odyssey expansion for the Bones V Kickstarter.
      I love the sense of motion, grace, and power in Julie Guthrie's sculpt.
      This is a resin master figure, not a production piece in Bones plastic. 
       

       

       

       

       
      It took me waaaaay too long to paint this.  I got the figure more than a year ago but I couldn't decide on a color.  I ruled out the traditional "white horse with white wings" but that still left ... well, infinity-minus-one options. 
      I imagine this Pegasus flying along a sunny rocky coast.
      The pale buckskin colors are inspired by a photo of a mustang, and the wings by the juvenile (brown) plumage of some species of gulls, which I found in Sibley's encyclopedic bird book.  When I painted Reaper's peryton (also sculpted by Julie Guthrie), I took my cue from hawk wings, but this time I looked at birds other than raptors.  These wings seem to have a different shape from most hawks or eagles (falcons maybe), and I figured that Pegasus wouldn't have the colors of a carnivore/raptor.
      The turquoise-blue eyes tie in with the color of the water below.
       
      Enjoy,
      Derek
