    01573, Mel the Chibi Bathalian

    Here's 01573, Mel the Chibi Bathalian (illithid), Exclusive 2015 Reaper Artist Conference Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This one was certainly one of the most challenging and fun Bonesylvanian I painted so far. I've read about their background story and knowing that illithids comes from outter space I decided to give it a little astal twist. I was greatly inspired by the amazing paint job on Antimatter Games DeepStar Kraken and added dots on its forehead.

    Lidless Eye Hobbies: The Randos

    A gallery dedicated to the random fantasy guys I finished while I was working on the other themed projects: A bunch of randos: Dolmen from Ganesha Games: A Hobgoblin Wizard, also from Ganesha Games: A Halfling Thief from Red Box Games: A Kraken Cult Leader from Midlam Miniatures:

    77020: Bathalian

    I'm enjoying getting used to my newly made lightbox, going through the various minis I've recently painted. This was primed with Vallejo acrylic grey and painted with Humbrol enamels. I had a go at OSL and I'm not completely disappointed with how it turned out! Thanks for looking!

    Sangalor the Mind Flayer

    This is my second paint up from the D&D collector series - Scoundrels of Skullport. Classic D&D monster, the Mind Flayer! The Beholder is here, but I may go back, touch up and take better pics soon. Hope you Enjoy!
  5. I wanted to have an Illithid for gaming and got me D'Khul. To create a "fishy" look on his skin, I painted it in pale violet metallics, shaded blueish and highlighted towards silver, then applied matt varnish. I was quite happy with the result and got a bit carried away when also doing the staff in metallics and the hood and hem with violet-green iridescent pigments. The photo is not so brilliant, one will have to imagine it shimmering under different light directions. What do you think of the basic idea? Should illithids look like that or should they rather come with a dark-and-simple scheme?

    Eyeball Beholderkin

    My own sculpt of an eyeball beholderkin, next to a D&D prepainted drow. I imagine him saying in a creepy voice, "Mistress ... I detect intruders." (Related to my first attempt at a eyeball beholderkin familiar ... http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64578-20021-bathalian-mind-flayer-with-eyeball-beholderkin-familiar)
  7. I sculpted a familiar for the Illithid, an Eyeball Beholderkin. Way back when there was no miniature for a tiny Beholder, so I made my own -- the Eyeball is the first figure I ever sculpted! It's held aloft by a black post attached to the base, which I removed from the picture.
  8. My continuing adventures: This guy was my first adventure with a blue wash. I was trying out new colors, new brushes, blah blah blah. I don't hate him, but IIIIIIIIIIII dunno. And then: I love this guy, despite his Egyptian-walk pose. I couldn't get him to show up very well in any of the pictures I took, unfortunately. Guess I need to quit being shoddy and set up a proper background. But I tried some orange shading with the brown robe, like I was asking about elsewhere, and it looks kind of neat in person. A worthwhile experiment, if nothing else. I also tried adding the yellow on his belting specifically to ccontrast with the purple. Which at least shows I'm thinking, right? Right. Moving along: Didn't try to do a lot with this guy. Aimed to keep it simple. He freaks my wife out, and that'll do, pig. That'll do. Thanks for looking. Totally open as always to advice and all.
  9. These are two octopus-headed psychic baddies, one Reaper's "03135: B'thuhl, Bathalian Pirate", and one a classic "Brain Slayer" from Ral Partha, showing a little of the scale creep of the last twenty years. Their mauve-green complexion comes from mixing Phthalo Green with Quinacricone Magenta. Adjusting the mix can give you anything from purple to a surprising deep blue to blue-green. Privately I think of them as "Fred" and "Charley." EDIT: Oh fruitbats, I forgot to reduce the size of one of the photos. Is that going to be a problem, mods? (And weird, editing added all sorts of annoying font tags which I had to remove manually.)
  10. Here are the results of my Metal vs. Bones paint off. Both figures were painted simultaneously using the exact same mix of colors; I basically went back and forth. I alternated which version I started/ended painting particular sections, so that neither got any favoritism with regards to order of painting. I didn't agonize over making things as perfect as I'd like; ego wasn't the point of this experiment. You'll note the one difference with respect to customization is the freehand inside the robe. I assumed that my freehand skills wouldn't allow me to replicate the same pattern on both figures, so I just followed my 'feeling' as I worked. I do hope that this one difference doesn't give any Bones naysayers ammunition to try and invalidate the experiment. I am in no way affiliated with Reaper. So there you have it, which version is which version?

    Thoon hulk conversion

    I started with a Bathalian Primarch, a Hellborn Troll, and the axe from the Kainus mini. I cut the head off the Primarch, which took some work with my pin vise and razor saw. I the attached it to the troll body by shaving the existing neck, pinning the two piece Primarch head to,it, and filling the gaps with green stuff. I also had to make sure the angle off head would not conflict with the upraised arm. I cut off the hand of the upraised arm and replaced it with a axe head (pinned and green stuffed on). I thought it woul look better, and more brutal, if it still had an operational hand. Besides, how's he gonna eat and do other mundane tasks? :-) I the also cut the face off a random mini I had and attached to he shoulder with green stuff. Then I painted and based it on a resin base. I wish I would have done more shading, but it turned out pretty nice.
