  1. WIP #1 was animals. WIP #2 will be plants. Until Bones 3 arrives, I only have 2 sets of plant creatures. Spirit of the Forest and Mushrooms (a 3 pack). I decided to warm up with the fun guys. First sliced some mold lines. Not too bad and not being super picky with these. Here they are ready for their bath. After some hot water and a scrub with the old toothbrush, I mounted them each on their own homemade holder. staff on the big one was noticeably less bent after the hot water rinse. then they got a diluted coat of brown liner. next up... Base coats.
  2. Here are three Reaper Bones fungi-folk. Not trying to compete with Malefactus or anything. Just having fun with secondary colors. I tried making my image file sizes smaller but it seemed to make the pictures blurry. What do y'all think?
  3. Not all was peace and quiet in the forest. Lately a group of little demons had infested the place. These Imps, Hordlings or whatever they were called, harassed the little animals, the fairies and they damaged the trees and the mushrooms. Even the Grand Mushroom watched in horror how they terrorized the Forest, but he could do nothing. One day the Imps captured one of the fairies and beat her up. She could barely escape and she fled crying. Almost leaving the forest, she came by a small dirt road, and she noticed a cart coming. Quickly she hid between the bushes. A wizard passed by, contemplating his latest spells, a cart filled with supplies. The donkey pulling the cart, was in no hurry it seemed. Slowly it passed by. The fairy looked at the cart, she sneaked into the back. The wizard didn't notice the little fairy rummaging through his supplies, he was too caught up in his spells. Suddenly the fairy noticed a bottle, the label said: Gigantic Growth. Feeling her blood rising to her cheeks she stole the bottle and hopped off the cart. She went back into the forest. The Imps saw her coming and started laughing. Clearly this one hadn't had enough! The fairy drank the potion, all of it, and in a moment she started to grow. One Imp said...this can't be good! The next moment the fairy had her revenge, she trampled the first Imp into the ground and chased the others. Even the Grand Mushroom felt sorry for the Imps now! For those interested WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71076-impfestation-by-xherman1964-mushroom-fairy-and-imps/ Components: Base - was a gift from the Awesome Knarthex! The Grand Mushroom - Sculpted and also a gift from Malefactus!!! Yes, the forum is full of wonderful people. Fairy - Hasslefree Fairies Wear Boots. Imps - Bones Hordlings and the little Drow Imp from Reaper's Familiar Pack IX. Little Mushrooms - Resin from Ristul's Market. Hope you like it.
  4. A little while ago I purchased Hasslefree's "Fairies Wear Boots" piece. The Gothic Punk like Fairy stomps on candy. Now I kept thinking that it would be fun to have her chasing little Imps and stomp those into the ground. So I got me some little familairs and stuff from Reaper. Then Malefacus ( Al) send me a wonderful Mushroom he sculpted. To top things off, Knarthex ( George) send me some stuff including a nice oval wooden plinth. Thinking about it all, I realised I now have the ingredients to start on this piece. The Idea is the Fairy chases Imps and Stomps a few into the ground. Maybe she swallowed a growth potion or something. Now she can finally have her revenge on those pesky Imps! The Mushroom watches the whole scene in horror. I will not use all these Imps/Demons, but I will take my pick which will suit the scene best. To complement the large Shroom, I will include some smaller resin mushrooms. Painting will follow later, but here are the ingredients:
  5. The other half has taken to figure sculpting. I managed to sneak a pic of the concept work and one of the pieces she's working on before she caught me and threw me out of the room :P Her concept art, and one of the pieces she's currently sculpting. The one being sculpted, only has half the arms attached, and the face is still being worked on. (as is the mushroom cap)
  6. Behold!
  7. All in a long weekend's work. These guys were really fun to paint.
  8. Between my bigger projects ( Tuma and Stree Violence) I wanted to do something small. Heavily inspired by Malefactus his Last Hurrah Project, I wanted to do something wih mushrooms and Goblins. I had this little Goblin Musician from Metal Magic laying around since the 90's , about time right? He is a nice little guy with a bagpipe, I sculpted the base with Milliput and some mushrooms, and added some resin mushrooms from Ristul's Market. Based ... More to follow soon,
  9. Blue Sky Mushroom, Amethyst Deceiver, and Chicken-of-the-woods. only one of these was painted this month but they look best as a unit.
  10. And now we have the second round of Fightin' Fungi complete, just in time for Ganesha's new Kickstater. Don't they take a handsome group photo together? Nice to see mushrooms of all flavors together.
  11. Here they are, fightin' again! The Fungus among us, etc, etc: Group shots, as always, first:
  12. My father is a Field Biologist and Moss aficionado when I went to visit him at the beginning of the month I asked for suggestions. He suggested this color pattern based on Chicken-of-the-woods. Which is a lovely shelf fungi. Any PC with a few points in survival can quickly identify it as edible, and more that some specimens are rumored to have healing properties. Yeah this poor little guy is going to get eaten.
  13. Just in time for the replacement set to arrive and leave me a cluttered work table, I've wrapped up the first set of "Fightin' Fungi", from Ganesha Games' recent Kickstarter. The first few are some of my favorites. The Reaper, Monk, and Magician are just fun sculpts.
  14. So, I spent yesterday working on some of my Bones II stuff. I'm around 70 figures in, but recently I haven't been doing much, instead working on sewing projects or metal figures for my PCs... That has to change, though, since Bones III is coming! With the Core Set looking pretty monster heavy, I want to get a second, possibly a third - but I only want to if I can prove I'll actually paint them, which means getting a good chunk of figures out of the way. My goal is 2-3 a day for the campaign's duration. I started off the challenge with seven figures! I first did the Myconid Men, since the fact that they're all the same sort of mushroom meant I could pick a color palate and stick with it. I could only find five of mine - I think I gave the second medium one to a friend - but I have to say, they were fiddly. Not hard, just surprisingly detailed for the two big ones. Either way, five of them is a pretty intimidating little group... and for 5$, I'll probably wind up bringing it up to eight when I get the chance, just so that I can have a little choice when it comes to group size. Five is pretty much the smallest group of these I'd use, but I'd rather not just have my players fight the same suspiciously similar five-man mushroom band in all my campaigns... The next one (well, two!) I did was the Mountain Troll. I wanted them to be more like Fire Trolls or some other sort of volcano giant, since one of my DMs does a lot of stuff with Fire Giants, so I gave them really dark reddish skin using one of my Citadel Paints, Doombull Brown, hit with a wash of Brown Liner; it didn't photograph great, but it's like the picture of the back of the blue one IRL on both. I painted one with blue and silver armor, and one with red and gold, and I have to say I love the contrast of the blue and silver on the dark skin. This figure was super fiddley! The straps are really thick in places - I wound up painting them with either Blue or Brown Liner (Blue for the Silver one, Brown for the Gold) and then painting just the flat top of the strap with Sand Brown. And there are so many straps... I painted skin first, which was a mistake - next time I'll paint the basecoat on the straps, do the skin, and then just tidy up the straps before painting the details... Beyond these, I got another 12 figures washed and primed with thinned Brown Liner - The stone giant and a hill giant, and a whole lot of Bugbears. I also got skin done on three of the bugbears and painted the skirt and skin on the hill giant; it's the one with the club, not the one with the tree. Hopefully I can do those four today; I have to get my costume for Connecticonn done, but I should be able to finish at least the giant...
  15. This was a lot of fun. So nice to paint something sort of small again. I am going to have to pick up some myconid minions to paint for it now.
  16. So, as you may or may not have seen in the Summer Exchange thread, I painted up a Bathalian for RobinH. I included a note that had most of my thoughts/directions (or lack there of) with it, so I think I'll just post a bunch of pictures, and post part of the note below. Lots of pictures (and loads more I didn't put here) - I'm pretty happy with how it turned out overall, even if there's a few rough patches (I really should have painted the hand/book BEFORE it was attached to the muchroom). And now for my novella, for perspective, it's directed toward RobinH (in case you wonder who "you" is): Spoiler tags because WALL O' TEXT ETA - as you can see in RobinH's photos (in the Exchange thread) I patched up the black on the base after I took pictures - I didn't notice it was scuffed up before I took the photos.
  17. So while the Shrieker and Violet Fungus aren't my favorite PF monsters, one of my favorite PF modules has an encounter with them, and I decided it was about time to paint up some appropriate minis for it. I initially planned on just a single-color base coat, but that looked boring in practice, thus I decided to freehand spots onto them. I think I went a little too heavy with the wash coat on the violet fungus, but it turned out nicely on the shriekers I think.
  18. Welcome to Hallucinoshroomland! Here is a Fungus Patch that I painted some years ago. There were several corners and holes difficult to reach on this model but it was fun to paint. The sculpt is by Bob Olley.
