Oooh Treasure...AAAHHH! Reaper BONES Mocking Beast

Oooh Treasure... AAAAAH!

The Reaper BONES line has a couple of really great treasure pieces. I previously completed the Reaper BONES Treasure Chest ($2.99 ) post Found the Booty and then started working on this Reaper BONES Mocking Beast ($2.29) figure. 

Because the two start with the same basic piece, the treasure chest, I decided that the those identical components should be identical. The wood was painted with Citadel Chadathan Brown. The metal components (trip and handles) were painted with Citadel Chain Mail. For the interior of the mouth and the gums, I went with Citadel Crimson Gore. There is a skull in the mouth as well, which I painted with Citadel Bleached Bone. The teeth also were painted with the bleached bone. The skull and teach were then washed with the Citadel Devlan Mud. The tongue was given a little more pop by painting with Citadel Blood Angels Red.

I spent a good deal of time trying to get the weathering done. I did a double wash to the entire structure of the exterior. The first was a very thin Citadel Brown wash. This was followed by a wash of Citadel Devlan Mud. Because the Mimic should look old and dusty, I followed those with a dry brushing of Citadel Elf Grey to give the wood a more weathered and mildewed look.
