Monsters, monsters, monsters... They're not something that I'm very good with. In my early years of D&D it was difficult to find them and always a sacrifice to buy them (every monster bought was one less character figure that I could spend my money on). So monster figures were subbed for others on many, many occasions. One minute it's a troll, half an hour later the same figure is an orgre... Next week it's a frost giant...
So I never did have a lot of monsters which means that I have less experience when it comes to painting them. I tend to put less effort into painting monstrous creatures because I want them to look a bit rough and frightening. Or, in the case of orcs and those sort of folk, I don't want them to look nice and tidy. The Minotaur I recently painted is an example of this. So for me, painting monsters necessitates a different approach.
So what have I got?
A Yeti (I think) from Reaper Bones. This was an easy paint job. It looks okay. The eyes look much better in the flesh as does the white dry-brushing. Not a bad for a $6.00 investment.
A friendly little orc for scale.
