Kerplunk goes Kagunk

All right!  Here we go... some finished images of Kagunk, Ogre Chieftan from Reaper miniatures.

As a reminder, this is one of the Bones minis.  Everything considered, they can paint up quite nicely :-)

This is being used as the figure for the Shaded basecoat class at Reapercon.  For those actually taking the class (if you are reading this), don't expect to be painting an entire mini!  That is not the point, and there is DEFINITELY not going to be enough time

The idea is to give you an introduction to the concept, without being too overwhelming right off the bat.  In fact, there will probably be time to work on one or two elements.  I thought the shield and a few other items might do the trick in the time we will have.

The Glazing class is supposed to 'piggyback' onto the shaded basecoat class, so much more of the glazing will be covered there.  As always, the Shaded Basecoat sets up those subsequent glazes.

The glazes are used to tint colors just as much as it is to shade them darker, as you can see here.  Much more green was added with glazing since the Shaded Basecoat.

And then a size comparison next to the standard 28mm archer that was just completed.  He's one big hombre!!!


  1. Did you primer the model another color or did you just paint straight from the package? I've had a bit of trouble getting the paint to stick on mine.

    1. I always primer my minis... in this case gray.

    2. I've yet to paint a Bones mini, but I have a hard time believing that you will get good results without priming it.

  2. I love the looks of this mini, your paint work is very good. I have one in metal that I'm eventually going to get around to painting. Manor is a fun sculptor.
