  1. Here's a few pics of my Bones Great Worm, completed during my July paint binge. Here's some pics of rats. I especially like the cow patterned one. WIP is here:
  2. Some little friends ........for dangerous adventures Cheers Eric
  3. BEHOLD! GOREMAW! Done as a classic purple worm from D&D. My favorite mini in Bones 3!
  4. I decided to be traditional and go for a purple worm. Since I will be needing one for a future game and lets face it. The DDM one is just meh. Here is some comparison shots of Goremaw and the theme I'm going for. I decided to prime him with Pokorny Paints: Black. Now this paint is not the best option for priming I still believe liner goes on much smoother. However, for big guys like this its not so bad. You may notice a few spots that didn't get coverage. That seem to be common with this paint so you have to watch out for those if you decide to use this stuff. I will go hunting for said spots with a smaller brush as I want to ensure completely coverage.
  5. Hey all, Here's the very preliminary stages of my next project, Bones Great Worm, which I'll be painting pretty close to WOTC's Purple Worm from the DND 5E Monster Manual. Backside purple, front a sort of bone or dark ivory that leans toward yellow. The sculpt doesn't have the bony plate sort of look the MM has for worms, but I still like the color scheme. The "seams" that connect the belly to the dorsal side will probably be a varying gray, similar to the stones he's bursting up out of. (Colored marker selection is, like my paint selection, very limited) Some fun notes about this project: First time using my new wet palette, WNS7 brushes, and a new drybrush. I may end up experimenting with some homemade washes if I'm feeling squirrelly. Will probably use this guy as my maiden voyage into custom basing, though that will probably be a couple weeks away. Very excited to paint this sculpt, since it's a very dynamic pose with lots of topography, this will demand great highlights and shadows, an area I need serious practice in. Either I'll rise to the challenge and produce something I'll be proud to terrorize my players with, or when I bring it out they'll assume it's a CR1/4 monster ;) Stay tuned to find out! Rob

  7. Stefan d'Marque moved through the abandoned town quickly. The large holes in the ground disturbed him greatly. Could that be where townsfolk had disappeared to? What manner of creature could move through the rock and dirt in such a manner? His answer came quick and sudden, as the ground beneath his feet shift. Into the air he went, though he was not thrown. The bone crushing, flesh tearing pain surged through his body. Stefan cried out in pain, stabbing downward. It was all for not, as the great beast beneath him swallowed his torso. Stefan took his last gasp of air... his vision blurred, and went dark. The great beast disappeared into the earth, its appetite sated... for now. This one was so much fun to paint. Though I had the idea of a purple worm when I started, I kind of had the joker in mind when I started putting paint to mini. I am very pleased with the end result. CAH
  8. It was quite a busy semester, and on top of that I bought a house (my first!) and then I had to move into it!. Between all the mowing and stuff I now have to do, I got my craft room all set up. After working my way through a slew of Dwarven Forge Cavern tiles, I finally got a proper mini painted. I'd base-coated this little nasty before Christmas time last year, with blue liner and then didn't get any painting done after that. Until today... For a neophyte with a six-month hiatus, I'm pretty happy with it. This will definitely make an appearance on the table.
  9. I finally got the confidence to paint up my GF9 purple worm. Beautiful sculpt, but not fun to put together for such a simple design. He had a lot of gaps, and nothing seemed to fit together snugly. What do you think?
  10. I received my Reaper Bones II Kickstarter stuff a few weeks ago, and while I had a little bit of Buyer's Remorse at not having purchased a few additional bits and pieces from the campaign, that's mostly due to having started new projects that things would have worked well for in the time since the campaign ended, and then finally delivered however many months late it was. I didn't even bother keeping track of that this time around. Overall it's a solid bunch of models for PVC, and I picked out a few that I thought would make nice, quick painting projects. The first was the Bronze Bull/Brass Bull/"Gorgon" which I have been working on, and just need to finish the final touches on (probably later this weekend). The second and third are these two ...thingies. Now, my nerd-background is solidly on the Warhammer/LotR side rather than the D&D side, so when I saw the 03603 "Cython" and 03582 "Mind Eater", I saw silly-weird Rogue-Trader-esque space aliens, rather than D&D critters, and decided to paint them up in that spirit - somewhat inspired by Cheetor's Alien Flora and Fauna project (and the fact that they looked like they'd be quick and easy enough). So in the spirit of all that, I thought I'd paint these suckers up. Knowing that of course, the things must be "inspired by" some kind of D&D or Pathfinder critters, I also asked Tarmor if he knew what these things actually not-are. He informed me that the 03603 "Cython" looks a lot like a Grick from 3rd edition D&D and that 03582 "Mind Eater" is a direct "copy" (ripoff) of an Intellect Devourer from all editions! Tarmor also kindly provided me with a couple of pictures that I then used as paint references. Now that I've done the photography, I'll be adding some Gloss Varnish to the Brain Diner, and these two will be done and dusted. Since I rarely play D&D/Pathfinder (every few months I play the occasional session run by Orez. I think we're level 3 or so?) I don't know when or if these will ever see the table in their "proper" form, much like that not-Purple Worm. Anyway, both figures were reasonably quick and easy to paint, and the various blending of tones was fun and turned out pretty decently as well. Now it's back to bloody goblins!
  11. This worm is from DIY Purple Worm model cheap/easy (The DM's Craft, EP 73) Newer pictures few posts later. I did few differences to theDMsCraft version. 1. I cutted the paper cores into 3 parts, so I could easier bending (if I will make another one, I will make photos) 2. I didn't have model magic, but every kind of putty like green stuff or air drying stuff will to it, too. 3. I gave him a mouth similiar to the Dune Sandworm. It is made also out of toilet cores. 4. about the plates on the back, I did it reverse to theDMsCraft version, because I think it would be hard for the worm to tunnel under the earth if they are otherwise placed. Sorry for the photos, I couldn't hold the camera without shaking... I will try it again to get better photos. The Miniatures for scale are Zombicide survivors.
  12. These are listed in the order in which I painted them. Purple Worm: Werewolf: Gnoll Warrior: I sure wish I hadn't messed up his face. Bugbear: I have no idea where his eyes are supposed to be. Ghost:
  13. All of the purple on this one was applied with an airbrush. I'm pretty pleased with the speed painting effect. Overall time spent on this was 2 hours.
  14. Just made a short video of this Purple Worm that I painted up using mostly oil based paints. Let me know what you think.
  15. Hello everyone, This will be my first WIP post. While I've been painting minis for a while now, I've never been too creative when it comes to basing. Because of this, I recently went on a shopping "spree" and spent 5 bucks on small wooden bases! I seem to have the cart before the horse as my actual worm model is *almost* done. I tried a couple new things on this mini and did them out of order, so now I have to go back and fix some things, but for the most part you can see where I'm going with the mini. New stuff I tried on this mini: Inks & Drool. I used my matte sealer after affixing the drool and now I have matte drool . Oh well, live and learn right? This post will mainly be about basing this guy, and right now I'm stuck between a desert or jungle base. I'm leaning towards desert even though the colors don't really match, because I think it will be easier. And while I'm not against challenging myself, I want to have the base be of sufficient quality to match the mini. Well, what do you guys think?
  16. So with the liberal use of green stuff, I have created a variant to the tried and true classic purple worm. This iconic beastie tends to inhabit rocky wastes and underground regions. I decided to create a variant to him based on the idea that creatures migrate and adapt. In this case, this fella moved into a swamp land and has undergone some adaptations in the form of skin alterations. His heritage as a purple worm still shows up however, something I attempted to show by over-emphasizing the creatures lateral vasculature. I actually painted some of the lateral skin folds by using painting to integrate them into the lateral vasculature. My goal with the miniature was to have the worm rising from the swamp much and turning his head sharply upward; I attempted to demonstrate this with the three green venom strands whipping out from his mouth. After photographing him, I realized there was a slight mold line along the midline of his upper lip. This was not evident to me with the naked eye as I painted him, so it kinda bums me in photos. A note to newer painters, the darkened shading you see in the middle/upper portion of the interior of the jaw is shaded with deep browns intentionally, as are parts of his green hide (shaded dark green) since they would be dimly lit (if at all) in the murky depths of a swamp. This technique took me forever to develop an eye/brain for; as a newer painter I REALLY wanted everything to show up perfectly as if pure daylight was shining on the thing from every angle. C&C always welcome.
