This figure has been sitting on my desk for a while. Seems like it should be a quick paint job, but I just haven't taken the time to sit down and do something with it.

I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with this Yeti Warrior from Reaper Miniatures, but maybe doing a groupbuild will inspire me. All white seems too boring, so I'm thinking of a light blue shading with white/brown/grey high/lowlights.

It's a fantasy miniature for use in D&D or other similar games and is scaled at about 1/56 or 28mm.

Now there's a fierce looking chap :shock:

There won't be a lot of entertainment found in the fur, but it looks like it's face and (to a lesser degree) hands should give you something to play with. Maybe you could have it chase some mountain troops off it's hill?

You could go the traditional white or add some mottling as found on other creatures leiving on a similar environment e.g. Snow leopard

That's a ferocious looking beast! He really needs to be chasing somebody. :)

Hopefully, this one will be done in tabletop mode for someone to use as part of a D&D campaign.

Yeah, there doesn't seem to be too much to do with this one, but I'm going to try and liven it up a bit. We'll see how it turns out.

I'm thinking of making it look a little icy/frosty, with some muddy/grim in a few points. Kind of a ice-blue Wampa from Hoth.

Hopefully, he'll chase...AND CATCH...someone raiding party!

With a little bit of primer on him, the details are more visible.

I'm going to try a bluish base and try to build it up to white/grey from there. Not sure if it's going to work out, but we'll give it the old college try!

The primer also shows what appear to be seams between the fingers/claws ?

Explains a lot. It's a fairly vain thing really, and it's a bit miffed it just can't get a proper manicure :-D
The seam also seems to extend up the right arm, so possibly elsewhere as well.
