  1. I'm covering this in my Lost World Project also. However since this is basically a Terrain Piece/Diorama thingie, I decided to make a separate WIP as well. So those who are only interested in terrain and such will also see it. It all started when @knarthex his daughter Alsnia posted a pic of her Pet Snake. Then @Pezler the Polychromatic made up a background story See my WIP page 65 http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=65 @malefactushas always inspired me with his great terrain and he also encouraged me... And I have also read the great threads of @Chris Palmer who made fantastic jungle statues. So I knew I had to do this. I bought a Toy Anaconda and a Toy Python. The Anaconda will become Tanith. The Serpent Goddess will be repainted in albino colours like Alsnia's pet, but it will also be part stone. She is in stasis in a statue and now Alsnia the Priestess ( Bones Sarah the Seer) has been chanting and summoning until Tanith sheds her stone skin and breaks out of the statue. The Python will be a gold or bronze statuette on the back of the wall. I'm planning to put torches and sacrifices/gifts on the altar. There will be two pipes coming from the backwall and snakes will pour from those and will be crawling all over the altar. Here is what I've done so far. Then I needed to carve out the shape of the Python to embedd it into the back wall later. Too much gap will be filled with putty. There will also be much stuff likes vines and leaves all over it. So this may take a while.
  2. While at ReaperCon 2016, I hit up the melt bin and found 3 distinctly different parts of 3 different figures. The first one was torso of 03465: Shaerileth, Spider Demoness, the second was a snake's tail (not sure from what or even if it's Reaper let me know if you know what it is!) and the third looks like it's a tentacle from the 02634: Well of Doom. These are NSFW due to the nude portion of the top of the figure and so I'll link to my Facebook pics that I've posted up. Here's the pieces as I pulled them from the melt bin. Pic 1 - all separate Pic 2 - test fitted using museum putty Pic 3 - glued and green stuff putty putting it together Pic 4 - another angle Pic 5 - yet another angle
  3. I painted 14471 Somchai, in my Lost World Project he is called Sssuuchooi. WIP and Story here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/ I had a lot of fun painting this guy, hope you like him, Based on a Tabletop Art Resin Base.
  4. So, I rarely post any of my work in the forum. I've not painted anything most of this year, and just got back to it. So here's the third post of my last few weeks. Not just lurking this week. I decided the next project was to paint up some Yuan-ti as villains for my friend's new Dark Sun campaign. I had a serviceable pre-painted one to use the other week, but the GM hinted that these guys were going to be coming up more as we dug further into the story. So, I dug out the snake men from my Kickstarter pile and painted them up. I was just going to try some quick and dirty tabletop colors on them. Green ink over metallic silver to give one a glittering green scale thing. One was going to have a desert snake look, using rattlesnake leather and a dark wash. I had no idea what to do with the third, so I set it aside while I worked on the others. The green guy was a success. I used Scalecolor emerald alchemy as a base with a couple washes of Army Painter green tone for definition. I liked how it turned out. Not a lot of effort to it, but I just wanted a simple glittery green look, and this worked well. The desert guy wasn't doing it for me with just rattlesnake leather. It was far too plain with just the one color and a wash. I looked online at some snakes and realized he would look good with some rattler style patches. With a little blackened brown and ginger cookie, he looked far more interesting and was pretty much what I wanted for that one. The third was tough. I almost did a pure black cobra look to it, but plain black alone would look cheesy and I wasn't really interested in highlighting all those scales. Because of how the GM built this game world, there are no fires allowed in the city at all. The few magic users allowed in the region are specifically the king's fire watch team. The first of the Yuan-ti we ran into was discovered when it had set on fire the manor house of a prominent family in town. What better color scheme than a fire looking snake man as a nemesis in a town where any fire was prohibited? This was certainly the most involved color scheme/blend I've worked with, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. This progressed through buckskin pale, palomino gold, fire orange, phoenix red, fire red, and finished with gory red for the top ridge. Unfortunately, like my Arbiss the Red I posted earlier, my camera washed out the darker reds. If you know what gory red looks like, the final ridge was pure gory red, so you have an idea what it looks like on my table. Not quite sure what I'll do with the bases yet, but since this is pretty much an arid world, I'll likely go with some more flat desert, with crackle medium and maybe a wasteland tuft or two thrown in to break up the monotony of just flat tan dirt.
  5. Finished the last model in my Tyranid army for now. All hail the King and Queen. :)
  6. Clearing stuff off my desk. Finally finished a pair of the mariliths that have been sitting on my shelf for months. All the arms on these figures reminded me of paintings of Indian gods. So that's what I went for in upper body. The lower bodies are inspired by two distinctive patterns I found when I googled for cobras: the King Cobra (Miss Blue) and the Indian/Speckled Cobra (Miss Purple). I believe that cropping the front photos is in line with forum rules on nudity. Please let me know if I have misunderstood.
  7. I give you Sssllthr the latest recruit for my Army of the Lost World. WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-army-of-the-lost-world-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures/
  8. This is The Amphisbaena, which I originally painted up the other night to go along with Draco the Barbarian, but I reversed course when I remembered that the main contest that I'm going to enter Draco into at Reapercon (for Ares Mythologic) needs to have their figures and not mainly have other manufacturers in any diorama/vignette that I build. So I'll go ahead and add this to an already created base and another Conan barbarian that I have. This was part of the most recent Temple of Set IGG campaign and what is even cooler about this snake is that it was sculpted by Andy (TaleSpinner)! Anyhow, here's the 2-headed snake in all his slithery glory! Of course C&C are welcomed and encouraged!
  9. I painted this guy up real quick tonight in about three hours. He'll be slashing at player characters tomorrow!
  10. I finished up the Bones 1 KS "Bedeviled" set this week with the completion of Vandorendra, Snake Demon. I enjoyed the opportunity to experiment with a non-caucasian, yet realistic skin tone, (as opposed to the blue, red, and green I've done recently). Photo is linked due to nudity. As always, C & C welcome. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-p0izIXXhPi4/VqX3ncfI2wI/AAAAAAAAHnM/tddsBCrewx0/s1600/IMG_6174.jpg
  11. Since more people are showing off what they did last year, here are mine: Minis I painted in 2015. ( seems I have been busy) I will link them so you can check them out. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66228-54mm-maria-roseblade-pirate-queen-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65908-pumpkin-witches-and-their-house-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65484-legendarion-hyena-warrior-bust-gebhuza-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64977-zombicide-survivor-dog-painted-as-my-boxer-brutus-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63196-bonnie-chonoscope-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60500-77117-vandorendra-snake-demon-bones/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63938-kabuki-bust-ky-ra-female-barbarian-16-scale-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61631-xherman1964-paints-a-ral-partha-hill-troll/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62215-beloved-of-sobek-by-xherman1964-crocodile-games/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61632-stygian-guardian-chronopia/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61214-77100-vanja-fire-giant-queen-bones/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60445-zombie-grenadier-horseman/
  12. This is the second version of the Razorspine Rattler from Wyrd Miniatures (SKU 20315). Its kinda unsettling looking, kinda wyrd in fact I practiced washes on this thing, it ended up with not enough contrast in the end, so I had to lighten it up on top using highlights, at least it was a good exercise. The spikes were a real pain, so many of them! And after it was finished one of the cats knocked it to the floor, amazingly even if the model broke in one spot, none of the spines broke. I guess that plastic is stronger than it looks.
  13. Hi all, I recently finished my first commission of Vandorendra, Snake Demon & thought I'd show it off here. The pictures contain reptillian nudity so I have linked them to an external site. Vandorendra front Vandorendra left Vandorendra back Vandorendra right Thanks for looking!
  14. This guys were fun (and quick) to paint up. Snake on the right is a Indian Cobra as the sculpt intends. (The white on the hood follows the shape sculpted in.) Snake on the left is roughly a spotted viper. I converted the cobra by chopping of its hood, but should have just shorten the hood and added some green stuff to the remaining bit of hood to give it a wide face.
  15. Oohhh lets walk into that dungeon with all the snake motives. What could go wrong? And against a different backdrop. Bonus points if you recognize the environment.
  16. So I finished the Bones version of Vanja. I also tried a few backdrops ( just printouts from the internet). Hope you like her. EDIT: forgot to mention this earlier, don't know if it shows well in the pics. The armor is red mixed with silver to get a metallic look, later i added more silver for the highlight parts. And with a more neutral back drop. I'm new to this...must make a lightbox soon. These were made in the garden.
  17. I am basing this one on a Lowland Copperhead... a very colorful neat looking snake.
  18. Figured he could have his own thread Painting him up like a Gaboon Viper. Not sure what to do for terrain yet. Would be neat to have those fake dead leaf litter stuff to properly make him look at home but i don't have any of that Going to focus on making his markings crisper now that i have them marked out
  19. So I'm going to make a WIP for most of the minis I bought for this month's Ghoulie bag special Axebeak and the two giant snakes are dark-washed, I've started painting the tiger. Displacer phase cat is primed, and I've twisted his tentacles into poses that make me happy. Axebeak is on a Secret Weapon Blasted Wetlands base, and the giant snake [with his lovely dragon head that I decided to use instead of the viper one] is on a Secret Weapon Lava base *EDIT TO ADD* Ral Partha griffon and 03679 Giant Cobra. And a pack of old pewter doggies
  20. Tarlen has received his mini, safe and sound, so I can post these pics! I had an absolute blast painting this one up. Tarlen described a pretty wild setting for his current campaign, so I wanted something that would be a bit exotic. He also specified "no horde monsters," so I wanted a creature that could conceivably be an encounter on its own. I decided to go with a gorgon/medusa. Gorgons have long been one of my favorite monsters, and the metal version of this was one of the first monsters I painted, so I was excited to revisit the sculpt. I painted the metal one in fairly drab greens and browns, but I've evolved somewhat as a painter, so I wanted to do something a little more interesting. Knowing Tarlen was in New Zealand, I thought it would be cool to paint this up as a snake native to the island...after all, Australia has some really crazy species, so I figured New Zealand must have something worth painting, too. As it turns out, there's plenty of awesome there but snakes aren't part of it...no native species at all (and some laws in place to keep the island even more snake-free than St. Patrick's Ireland). Luckily, I found what I was looking for in the waters off NZ's coast. The Yellow Sea Snake. Bright colors, bold patterns and an alien look that I hoped would match well with Tarlen's campaign. Here's a teaser, because this reptile has mammal parts: And here's the link. Tarlen, I hope she does some suitable injury to your PCs!
  21. Tearing through my Bones, trying to get ready for Bones II, and AVP.
  22. This model really lends itself well to the Bones Material because the whole thing has a heck of a lot of texture, especially the abs and the tail. Great fun to paint, and real easy. Link (Because of the Nudity) http://i.imgur.com/P67STlX.jpg
  23. Alright, so this will be the last post I make for a bit, I think. I just got my new minis in, so that should be occupying my time for awhile. I did this sucker two days ago (picked him up from my local comic shop.) He's my 4th ever attempt at painting a mini and my second Bones figure. I think I will eventually go back in and touch up the swords, but I'm quite pleased with him overall.
  24. So I found two primed minis I had misplaced, the Iron Cobra Talespinner had sent me along with the wyvern and a clearance monk like mini I had bought at my FLGS. This is going to be a WIP for the cobra =3 Question is....should I try out my new rust skills and make a rusty cobra? It's tempting...but he is rather small, i might not be able to get the full effect on him. So shiny might be the way to go. Opinions?
  25. VIGNETTE TITLE...MOONSHINE (NOVELTY VIGNETTE)... NOTE...I have had this cute Reaper female wearing daisy duke shorts for a long time, but never really got any ideas about how to use her in a vignette. The other day I saw an art sketch by an artist named Dodion and the idea for my vignette " sang " to me. I finally had the right concept setting for my daisy duke girl. This is the making of my (MOONSHINE) vignette. PHOTO 1. Parts from my giant parts box to make the moonshine still. PHOTO 2. REAPER (Bobby Jo, Redneck Princess # 50200)...my daisy duke honey. PHOTO 3. Rattlesnake made from plastic sprue. PHOTO 4. Rattlesnake painted as a yellow phase timber rattler...crawling through the forest floor debris. PHOTO 5 & 6. Moonshine still assembled and placed. PHOTO 7 & 8. My daisy duke honey painted (front & back view). PHOTO 9 - 12. Views of the finished vignette. This of course goes into my private vignette collection. I had a great time building this little piece...hope that you like the end results.
