6MMRPC: Week 25.5 Large Earth Elemental Reaper Bones

Another posting over to Caffeine Forge. As mentioned in my last post, I was a bit disappointed with how my painting turned out this week. I found it a bit challenging to avoid painting this guy a single colour, yet find enough 'realistic' colour tones to use. I tried to bring some bright colours down with inking and then couldn't be bothered to highlight so many different seams and colours.

I suppose I'm fortunate that I have a deadline for this, or I'd be inclined to let this one sit until I could figure out how to 'fix' him. You know, indefinitely. I'm sure lots of us do this from time to time. Anyway, definitely ends up on the 'whatever, fine enough' pile. But completed nonetheless!

The mini itself is well sculpted with lots of character to be taken advantage of. My favorite part is the fossil embedded in the upper right hand shoulder. I didn't get a great pic of it, but you can get the idea.


  1. So tiny a base for such a large construct....

    Still, love how he looks as though he's made of different minerals and alloys. Well done.

    1. He is only a bit tippy. I think it helps that his arms are so low, and it's such a low density material. If I use him much I probably will put him on a larger base.
