Thanks for the ideas Steve.  I haven't decided decided what to do with the eyes yet.

Progress occurs, if slowly.

Mouth looks great. The green on the spine makes it look like something radioactive or possibly crystalline. Awesome!

I've finished the spiney, toothy bits and have moved on to his weapons.  Have to admit I'm having difficulty with staying with this beast.  I really want to move on to something else, but do not want to leave him unfinished.  Trying something new with the axe.  I usually base coat steel with grey.  Not this time, unless this doesn't work.  Then I'll have to do it again.  Pictures if and when I'm happy with the results.

Well, have now done the metal, rust and highlights.  It may change in pictures, but you can't tell it was based with purple.

The blending on the skin is lovely but you're going to have to darken the shaded areas or it will all flatten out at any distance

Good work so far

I really need to finish this poor guy.  He has been sitting on my table for a year now unfinished and I'm not particularly happy about that fact.  Blurdy life getting in the way.  Here's to the hope of finding time for my hobby again soon.

Do some tiger stripes or mystic swirls in a slightly darker or lighter shade as a skin pattern!

Not on the same scale... but I wanted to brighten up my lurkers because I thought they were just too plain so I went for bright contrastiong patches that were sort of 'lizardy' which I thought suited the poses quite niceley.

The colours on these are a little bright but a toned down version may suit the big guy? :

I've been thinking on it, and I am going to try some tests on a scrap orc or two.

Well, I picked this guy up again.  Days past one year since my last pictures of him. I began by trying to deepen the contrast between areas.  I hope it worked without being too stark.  Sorry if the picture is huge.  It doesn't seem too massive on my tablet screen.  Which is where I'm posting this from.  I've scrolled back and forth before posting to check the difference and I think it looks good.

Agreed. That looks cool. The green radioactive/warpstone type stuff is really effective.

It has been some long time since I have worked on this beast, or any miniature for that matter.  I haven't stopped aquiring more though.   :wink:  Currently  I am seated at my painting desk and am very close to actually finishing this critter.  All I actually have left to do is finish the bits of body parts about his waist and base him.  Soon, I hope.  I must continue.

Looking forward to seeing it. I haven't painted a great deal in a long time (vampire was the exception). Also still acquiring.

His base seems to be impervious to all forms of attack.  I've made two attempts which have both been repelled, the third isn't looking promising.

Further inspection of attempt three has given a positive outlook.  Must remember to paint his eyes.

I started this thread almost 4 years ago.  I was working at my previous job then, and wasn't yet married.  How time goes by.  Whether he's finished now, or I'm just calling him so, I cannot decide.  Now will come picture taking and posting.  I hope that I can get that done this month, aweful thought that, needing a whole mother to get to that?  Provided the camera does not reveal horrible flaws that need fixing, thus causing depression and a lack of desire to proceed, it may happen.

What to paint now I wonder.

Base him up and call it finished, then if you see stuff that irks you  later, you can touch him up.
