  1. Funded

    KD:M Kickstarter 2 On November 25th, Black Friday. We will be launching our 2nd Kingdom Death: Monster campaign. The focus of the campaign will start on a reprint of the sold out Kingdom Death: Monster core set with an 1.4 ruleset. (Current version of the game is 1.31). An upgrade pack with the rulebook and updated cards will be available for existing fans. Beyond that my lips are sealed. Except for this tiny teaser of course. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/poots/kingdom-death-monster-15/description
  2. Presenting Percival, a knight of renown from Kingdom Death. Not massively happy with the face on this one, I was trying to give her a very pale complexion but it didn't really work. I also could've done a better job on her hair (I was just very intimidated by it for some reason). I am pretty pleased with the rest of her though. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  3. Starting this one up as it now has my attention due to a contest on bookfarce by the 'eavier metal facebook group. This is Distracted by Kingdom Death, she's a 54mm 1st run collector's edition resin miniature that I couldn't pass up a while back when she was released for a very limited time. This figure is completely nude so she is definitely NSFW and I'll make sure to link any pics that would violate forum rules. Let's start off with the 2 pics I can show! The NSFW pics that show the body parts - Front Side Side As I go along, I would like very honest and forthright comments and critiques to push me as she will be a contest entry and I may bring her to ReaperCon as well!
  4. So a couple of weeks before Christmas I threw my back out really bad. Unable to paint, and needing something to do, I dug out all my unassembled Kingdom Death stuff and started putting it together, turns out I had a lot:- An awful lot, I haven't even finished assembling it all yet, I'm working on Fade at the moment:- http://i.imgur.com/gucRNKq.jpg So I decided my New Years Resolution, would be to put dent in this pile of plastic. I finally managed a bit of painting yesterday and today, and made a start on my Gorm Armoured Survivors:- I've bascoated all their bodysuits in a combination of Vallejo Hawk Turquoise and 1:1 Vallejo Hexed Lichen/ Vallejo Warlord Purple with a Black Wash. I got a little further with my "Old Man" survivor:- I finished off his bodysuit with highlights of the basecoats and an extra highlight of pure Warlord Purple on the purple bits, plus some Vallejo Bonewhite stitches and 1:2 Warlord Purple/Vallejo Light Flesh nobbles. There's also Vallejo Scarlett Red wraps, Vallejo Oily Steel chains, Tanned Leather bone bits, Vallejo Fluo Green glowy bits, Vallejo Red Orange hairy(?) bits and Old Rose West fleshy bits. His skin is 1:1 Vallejo Rosy Flesh/ Vallejo Dwarf Flesh and he's got Vallejo Wolf Grey hair. And that's as far as I've got. I know how slow a painter I am (and having an increasingly unreliable back isn't going to help), so I'm setting any goals or time limits beyond getting something done eventually.
  5. Just a quick upload of some pics of my converted flower witch to a Harold on burning chariot of tzeentch.
  6. Presenting the Manhunter, an evil slave trader from the Kingdom Death:- Monster game. I love the mini, it has such awesome textured skin, but he seems oddly out of place even in the weird and wacky world of Kingdom Death (I like to think he has actually wandered in from a different game). As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  7. Presenting the Twilight Ninja from Kingdom Death, she was their special edition mini for last years Black Friday sale. I've had this one painted up for a little while, but I've been struggling to come up with a new photo setup (of course, the eventual solution was annoyingly simple). She's a little rough in places, I had to repaint bits of her bodysuit a few times too many, but I think she ended up looking pretty nifty. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  8. As I've been creating my own set of Chibi Kingdom Death minis, I've found that some of the monsters have such bizarre proportions that there's no need to convert them into chibis. Overall, my approach is to have the minis become less distorted and cute as they get larger (the way that Final Fantsy, Pokemon and Super Dungeon Explore do things). So, a lot of the very large monsters don't need to be altered. Instead, I try to paint them in vibrant colors that really let them pop out. I also create the bases using chibi faces rather than the normal ones. So, here is my Sunstalke. I de-emphasized the nudity in the painting of it, but since I didn't actually re-sculpt the Kingdom Deathy bits, it is linked: http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/Kingdom-Death/sunstalker-1.JPG?i=642091509
  9. One my Patrons chose, and now they get to win. Really nice model from the range, if a bit top-heavy.... She was also a pain to photo. Sometimes a model being this dynamically posed is less desirable. But, the entire thing was well considered and you can tell they took into account the posing to make painting it assembled really easy. She was also a dream to put together despite being 17 parts. I took my time here, and probably spent 30 or more hours on it. It's going to be tough to give away.
  10. Originally ordinary insects, the Dung Beetle Knights evolved humanoid forms to fool their enemies. The Knight:- Mr. Ball:- My first result in my attempt to spend the year getting some more of my Kingdom Death minis painted up. Had a lot of fun with these two, and I'm pretty pleased with the results. The Knight could've done with a highlight on the armour segments to make the cracks pop a bit more, but I was unwilling to gamble on my brush control being up to the job. Any comments or criticisms are, as always, warmly received.
  11. With me being a bit more excited about all things Kingdom Death at the moment, I put this guy on the table. So far:- I'm getting a basecoat down on the cloth parts, we've got Vallejo Hexed Lichen, Vallejo Scarlett Red, Vallejo Royal Blue and Oiled Leather. Originally the Oiled Leather was just a step towards eventually orange stripes, but I'm really liking how it looks next to the purple, so they may stay.
  12. I created this monster from a mix of bones (eyebeast, mockingbeast, harpy, nightspectre, ape demon, bed,) hands from the kingdom death phoenix, sculpey, green stuff and plasticard. I have a WIP here. This was a great deal of fun to sculpt and involved a lot of scary background music to get me in the mood. As a kid, I had an overactive imagination, so I can completely empathize with the kid under the blankets. I even tried to fool the monster under my bed once by dropping a pillow off the back of the bed while I made a flying leap for the lightswitch by the door! Enjoy!! C&C always welcome, and I'm happy to answer any questions. I'll be bringing this fellow with me to Reapercon, so feel free to come pick him up and look closer! Also, if there's anything that doesn't look right, let me know- I still have time to fiddle with it.
  13. I've got my copy of Kingdom Death: Monster with me here at the con. If anyone is interested in trying it out, I'd be glad to run it over at the board game tables. ~v
  14. First, a quick story. While falling asleep last night, I tried to come up with a plan for the Open category at Reapercon. The theme is horror, so I needed something suitable. What's scary? Hmmmn. Something scary. I liked Kuro's tentacle project. Something with tentacles? Hmmmn. Scary... what are kids afraid of... I sat bolt upright in bed. A Nightmare! It's perfect! I can mutilate a bunch of Bones I'll never get around to painting and make all the rest from greenstuff and sculpey. I can use Talespinner's awesome Bones bed and make a little kid huddling under a blanket. I am a bad Corporea. I started with the eyebeast and squashed some sculpey around it. the hands there are from the KD phoenix. They're the scariest hands I own and my game came with an extra phoenix. Perfect! I also stole the wings from the harpy, the arms from the harpy and ape demon and plan to stick on the mockingbeast. Plan is lots of eyes, tentacles, claws and teeth. Yup. Bad, bad Corporea. in progress. See my little nightlight off to the right? I'll be the only place where the Nightmare can't be. I'll have painted tentacle scuttling away from it. I like the way the hands hover over the poor kiddie. I realized after taking this I was using my Halloween pencil to plot. that's the spirit! more sculpting and I added in some ghostly wall. Not my best foray into photography and I managed to drop the whole mess onto the base after this, but I fixed it. Plus it was only about an hour of sculpting, so totally fixable. I'll be adding a bunch more details. The spider/etc on the base will be done using greenstuff. I'll make some more tentacles curling onto the bed and posts, but again, avoiding the light. tried to get a better pic: I'll be alternating this project with my diorama this weekend, but for now, must take a dinner break. I ate donuts last night so salad today. Sigh. Salad. Now that's a scary thought. More soon!!
  15. Cleaned, primed and based. Ready for paint! This one should stay SFW, if I do add a tiny bit of color to the forbidden spots, I'll do it at the end of the project :) I did learn one thing about CMoN's plastic bases, they're not the 'good' model plastic that melts with model cement (as KD's plastic does). So I needed to break out the superglue and will keep fingers crossed she stays put. I may need to pin her if she breaks loose, and I hate pinning high heels! One upside to the failed model cement experiment: I pushed her down pretty hard, so her feet conformed a bit better to the base.
  16. My Gen Con entry for this year. Overall I'm very happy with her. It's one of the best faces I've done so far. Had a lot of trouble assembling her though. The spear arm gave me fits as it snapped off several times and afterwards I couldn't seem to get it on straight and without gaps again. eventually I was able to fill it with a tiny amount of green stuff. Also had a little trouble pinning her to the base. You can tell she's not exactly flat on it, she actually floats a tiny bit above it and I just couldn't seem to fix it. Also she's leaning, less now than she was but she's still leaning. I tried to do some OSL with the parts of the spear near her hand but I just couldn't make it look right. So I abandoned that idea for now.
  17. The King's Man is a nemesis encounter from Monster. He'll show up and ruin your day at the ol' settlement. Mostly assembled (left off the scabbard and plume for now, experiment in painting a disassmbled model!), pinned and primed.
  18. Presenting the Phoenix from Kingdom Death, a weird bird/hand/old man combination. it has a WIP thread here. Finally! I've been working on this one for awhile now, and I'm happy that it's done. Unfortunately, it's sheer size has made it difficult to photograph (No idea how I'm going to eventually take pictures of it's much larger friend the Dragon King), and it's ended up looking pretty flat, but hopefully you can get a decent idea of what it looks like as I'm rather proud of it. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  19. Was planning on the Dragon King being my next big Kingdom Death project, but I fell in love with this as I built it:- Currently waiting for all the greenstuffed gaps to dry (Kingdom Deaths plastics are lovely, but I do think they could do more to disguise the joins between the pieces). At least I earned some more mini-prepping experience points.
  20. Hi all, Its been a bit slow for me painting wise, but I am always on the look out for great deals. Today I got an email from Kingdom death.. They are selling all, read ALL the expansions for the game, for the next 7 days, before they go back to their original plan to bring out 1 expansion every few months.. So if you want one, or all, now is the time.. Ends on 21st March
  21. Rather than continuing the Kingdom Death: Monster assembly discussion in the acquisitions thread I've created a thread specifically for that purpose. Post your tips, tricks, and little things you've noticed here and make the lives of your fellow hobbyist a little easier. To start I'm assembling the minis on the "prologue" sprue, which are conveniently numbered. While this should keep people from mixing parts together, it's still nice to see pictures! First up is the lion. So for things I've noticed: The face doesn't want to fit very well. I had to do some trimming to get it in place, and it looks like I could have still cut away a little more. Attach the lower jaw before placing the rest of the lion's head. If you attach the main part of the head first I don't think it's the end of the world but you'll likely have to cut the tab off of the jaw to slide it into place. The hindquarters didn't fit together quite as nicely as it looked like they would when I dry-fitted it. You can see the gaps this created below, but they should be easily filled. I'm sure most of you have been at this longer than me, but for the new arrivals an easy way to get the mini to sit flat is to put all three feet in place with a drop of liquid cement and quickly align them as best you can. Then flip the mini over and press down gently. Polystyrene does not melt together instantly so you have a window to make adjustments before it sets. It will probably create a small gap at one of the ankles but it will ensure that your mini doesn't have a paw that is at an angle. Obviously to do it this way you need to glue the legs to the body before you glue on the feet. If you go feet first he'll just stand as he stands. Next up is survivor "C" This time I remembered to take a pre-assembly pic. She is pretty straightforward but since I'm at it... Her left leg has a nice groove to ensure the hanging fabric goes in place properly. Doing this first makes it really easy to glue her right leg in place. Her weapon arm is actually covering two sprue attachment points, and should not be glued in place until her torso is attached to her legs.
  22. Don't have the greatest track record in finishing large minis, but lets give it a try:- He's only partially assembled at this stage, letting the glue dry overnight before trying to attach his feet. I also have 20+ tiny hands to glue to his wings, but that's a job for when I'm fully awake!
  23. Presenting a full set (plus pin-up) of Lion Armour wearing Survivors from the Kingdom Death: Monster game, there's a small WIP of them here. I kept the painting on them very, very simple as I'm not one of life's natural batch painters, plus I'm a bit so-so on the minis themselves (personally I would've preferred a set of nice monopose ones to represent each armour style rather than these very manikin-like multipose kits). But seeing them in a group like this, they don't look that bad. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, warmly received.
  24. I painted this one as a super-late Christmas present for one of my best friends. She specializes in Chinese policy, so I thought she'd like the dragon. Here's the front linked due to, um, maybe too much skin? Front View The base is a plastic Arcane from that micro arts kick-starter with CMON. I used deep ocean, fair skin, nightshade purple and leather white for the blue side and then mahogany brown, chestnut gold, palomino gold and buckskin pale for the golds.
  25. In preparation for 2016 I'm trying to get some of my half-finished 2015 minis off the shelf and into the done pile. I had no color scheme in mind for this mini so I grabbed some paint at random. Most of the time that I do this I decide that it was a horrible idea and put the paints back, but on occasion I just roll with it. Just to practice something different I desaturated all of the paints with white and gave her the '80s pastel look. About halfway through I did decide that I didn't really like this mini, but hey, she was a bonus and not the reason I made my purchase in the first place. For her base I kept with the same look as my previous KD:M minis, but just slapped the paint on quickly for tabletop quality. Also, this is the first mini I've finished using the Reaper skintones that I picked up earlier this month. It's probably the worst face that I've called finished in a long time, but she's off the table.
