  1. A while back I posted some Shroom Dudes I'd sculpted, and noted one of them had a bunch of little shroom fruiting bodies sticking out all over. I mentioned how this was done, but a step-by-step can't hurt. You'll need a mini, sewing pins with flattish but slightly domed heads, a very fine drill, some pliers, and superglue. Here's a long-unused Manes demon I got in a WotC grab bag, and a much-more-recently-acquired Nolzur's Myconid Adult. Let's call 'em Cletus and Boletus. Cletus will become a Spore Servant.Boletus will get an upgrade. Clamp your mini down firmly. FIRMLY! Otherwise the drill bit may try to skitter, and if there's one thing you DON'T want skittering, it's a rotating blade. Now, get a very very fine drill bit and drill some holes in 'em! What angle should those holes be? It's graceful if they're more vertical than 90°, but you can make it work with most angles. Next, get as many pins as you have holes drilled. These pins will be your long-stemmed mushrooms. It's probably smart to gauge the angle of the hole by inserting a straight pin into each hole before you begin the next step. And it's always a good idea to be a smarter crafter than I! Then, BEND them pins. You want smooth curves, but *not* consistent lengths or uniform shapes. Mushrooms do not require light to grow, but the taller they are, the further their spores can disperse. Now, get that superglue and glue those pins into the holes you've made for them. I advise starting at the top and working down. For verisimilitude, you want to avoid uniform heights and parallel curves (and indeed, straight lines at all). Then slap some paint onto those fungal stems and caps, and hey presto!
  2. Maybe this should have gone in the Sculpting thread, but I didn't make a build log when I sculpted these about four years ago. It was my first game DMing, a 5e homebrew, and enigmatic mycelial conspiracies played a large part. At this point I only knew the FLGS as a source of minis, and they didn't have any myconids. So I made do. One of them is based loosely off of bracket fungus and one off of amanita toadstools. Showing them off now because a) I picked up some Nolzur/Wizkids new Myconid Adult sculpts to go along with them, and b) I'm seeing so many wonderful mushroom-folk on the forums and love jumping in front of bandwagons. The sculpting was ham-fisted and the painting leaves much to be desired, but I am proud of one innovation that you can use for your myconids: for that enokitake effect, get a bunch of sewing pins, clip to different lengths, and bend them into a gentle curve near the cut or pointy end. Cluster as necessary.

    Mushroom Men: 77345

    Painted up these little guys. They are pretty funny. I might use them as creatures encountered in the Feywild.
  4. Howdy, Play that fungi music! Kev!
  5. Here's my brushwork on the long-anticipated (at least for me) Fightin' Fungi! These guys were unreached stretch goals during the original "Advanced Song of Blades & Heroes" Kickstarter, and finally came out with the recent Halfling vs. Chaos Dwarf expansion of "Axe & Brimstone" The Fungal Gladiator: The Bleeding Assassin: Goldcap, the Paladin:
  6. 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.

    Dark paints a Mushroom Paladin!

    Dark paints a Mushroom Paladin! Here is the Ganesha Games Mushroom Paladin from the Axe and Brimstone Kickstarter. This figure is great. I really like the dynamic pose, the bark armor, and the bits and details on it. He's painted to a tabletop standard, but the things that really work on him (the reaper golden skin tone) and the cap make me really happy.
  8. Another grouping of minis from the batch that suffered sealant malfunction, comes a grouping of ladies from the Sunkissed Vale, Dryads/Nymphs/Warrior Queens of the fungal persuasion. All are from Ganesha Games "Fightin' Fungi" line for "Song of Blades and Heroes" The Queen herself: An Amazon Fungus: The Mitkityad Forest Nymph: The entire growth: And a very confused Goblin, pulling rank for this and the Gobblydegook (Hey, it came in the same set!)
  9. 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.
  10. Here they are, fightin' again! The Fungus among us, etc, etc: Group shots, as always, first:
  11. Lidless Eye

    Lidless Eye Hobbies Fights Some Fungi

    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.
  12. After sitting half-finished for years, I rounded these guys up and completed them after seeing Ganesha Games start their "Fightin' Fungi!" Kickstarter. I think the two sets will blend...I may have to round them out further when the Bones versions of these fellows hit.

    Mushroom King - 03041

    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.
