    The Sunstalker (NSFW)

    https://imgur.com/W2NvtQC https://imgur.com/CoB0ov8 https://imgur.com/VPqucvu https://imgur.com/LLnJilq 'In the far west of the Borderlands, there is a land that spends a quarter of every year in darkness, the only light coming from the great gatherings of Sunstalkers that cover the plains. The locals tell a tale, about how the Sunstalkers, being the children of Night, aid her in her endless battle against Day by trying to eat the Sun. Whenever the Sun reaches the horizon the Sunstalkers gather, only to be held at bay by a mysterious person known as The Dawn Maiden. However, the constant battling eventually tries her out and inevitably she must leave the Sun unguarded, at which point it is devoured. In the end, her strength replenished, The Dawn Maiden returns and hunts down every Sunstalker, the indigestible fragments of Sun causing them to glow in the darkness. She cuts open their bloated bellies, reassembles the Sun piece by piece and releases it back into the sky to restart the cycle.' Presenting the Sunstalker, a monster from the game Kingdom Death: Monster. I don't really have the patience (or big enough brushes) for larger minis like this, so kept it super simple with lots of drybrushing. Despite that, I think it looks pretty good, so I'm happy. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    WOC40047, Grick

    Good day everyone, here's a Wizards of the Coast woc40047, Grick. This pewter model was sculpted by Neil McKenzie in 2000 and is now out of production. It's mounted on a 25mm round base.
  3. GodOfCheese

    Dweller in Brimstone

    A DaughterOfCheese abandoned the painting of this model, so it ended up in the Simple Green for awhile and I decided that her beautiful dress would look better with tentacles protruding from beneath it. Beautiful, sickly devil-flesh striding across a hellscape while she peels back her hood to reveal sinister horns. And it does get cold in hell, so don't forget your scarf. Or anyway, that was the plan. It turns out that her color made her difficult to photograph. The tentacles are formed around unwound paperclips, which were easy to twist into the right shape, but the flesh I added (green stuff, some clay, etc) was difficult to get to the right proportion without making it fall off. I'm new to this whole "modding" thing, so I'd LOVE feedback on it. :-)

    03787: The Crimson Herald

    Presenting The Herald, the third member of my Dreadmere group. At the suggestion of Crowley, I added more tentacles to connect him to his base a bit better. While I'm happy with how this went, I don't think he's as well painted as the other two. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Yellow Sign Undead

    Finished the last of the Yellow Sign faction, got a group pic that I'm gonna upload later but these are the final wave! WIP thread:
  7. Today saw the completion of the three Void Sorcerors: Womma Womma Womma! All my thin pointy brushes have given up on life and chosed to split, so I am struggling abit with thin lines these days. While waiting for some new brushes I have ordred to arrive, we get a bit shoddy with the freehand symbols such as in these books. It should still be possible to make out which symbols I have tried to paint in each of them though. I hope. These are from the “Masters of the Void Deluxe Enemy Pack” for Shadows of Brimstone, the Wierd West lovecraftian horror scifi mashup dungeon delver. This pack also includes the three Void Hounds I did a few weeks ago. So that completes the minis from that expansion. The void sorcerors are on 30mm bases, and are made from HIPS polystyre aka “hard plastic”.

    02737, Dung Monster

    Here is my 02737, Dung Monster. It was sculpted by Jason Wiebe and can also be found in the 10031, Dungeon Horrors Box Set. Since it's the second time I paint this model, I added four tentacles around its maw to make it look different. The tentacles are from 03334, Creature Components. Here is the LINK to the other one I painted in 2009.
  9. I've started the Kraken, since I've gotten strong hints that it will be a useful figure soon. Here are the pieces primed with Reaper's Brown Liner: You may notice that not only is the shipwreck separate, but the Kraken itself is in two pieces, the body / tail and the mouth / head / tentacles. This is because yesterday my youngest pointed out that another Kraken I was assembling for a friend, parked briefly in a decorative candleholder, looked just like a giant plant monster. Sort of like this: Anyhow, I plan to paint the front end sort of plantlike and the back end sort of spiny lobsterlike and blue-tac them together when needed to be a Kraken. The first thing I did was throw some medium bright green on, because plants and algae. It's still a bit wet in these pictures, and so looks brighter and more opaque than it really is. I'm just slopping the paint on at this point, getting color more or less where I want it, to be refined and nuanced later. Next I added some pure Mars Red, thinned down a bit so it's not opaque, to make the body look more lobsterlike. I mixed the red with some Titanium White to make a dull pink and painted around the creature's mouth. I hope to eventually make the tentacle canopy look disturbingly flowerlike. I mixed a soft yellow-brownish very pale cream color and scumbled it almost dry onto the creature's belly and corresponding outside of its tentacle canopy. Then I started mixing some dull grey-browns and bringing up weathered wood lights on the shipwreck (Reaper Sea Hag, unfinished, for scale). I started painting the creature's tentacles green. I ran out of the color about halfway around. I mixed a new batch which was brighter and yellower, and here is one of my big painting principles: It doesn't matter if the colors don't match. I almost never paint with a single color, and I layer on so many different colors for highlights and shading that by the end they more or less match anyway. Not only don't I sweat color matching, I prefer to paint with variations of colors to get a richer effect than any single color can manage, no matter how pure. Anyway, here are the tentacles in progress. I didn't take any in-focus pix of the shipwreck, but I dry-brushed some of the same bright green on it for more algae. And here's one last shot of the tentacles with more of the yellower brighter green brought over the duller, darker one.
  10. So Theshunter issued a little challenge http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72805-80036-shipping-container-unofficial-painting-contest/ I decided to do a WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73245-area-51-container-breach-by-xherman1964/ And came up with this diorama.

    77194: Cthulhu

    My GM needed this mini urgently for a game session this weekend. Asked me to paint it up. Needed a hill giant that had gone through Illithid ceremorphosis and created the hill giant from hell. Not the best pic from angles as GM had already grabbed the mini. Once it is used need to finish tentacles and runes on the base. Anyhoo thought I'd share
  12. ThesHunter had an idea for a challenge. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72805-80036-shipping-container-unofficial-painting-contest/ So I took these parts, and added some green stuff. https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/container/sku-down/80036 https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/tentacle/sku-down/77367 https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/nightstick/sku-down/50191 https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/natalia/sku-down/50149 I discussed this with some forumites. Got some great ideas and...

    77043: Eye Beast (Bones)

    Painted as part of my December Challenge, which I failed to document when my phone broke, it's that big rubber eyeball with the tentacles and some junk. Once it was done I realized it was too top-heavy so I glued it to a steel washer so it wouldn't tip over. I covered the uncovered metal with some coarse white sand and bound it together with gloss medium. It looks almost like rock salt or ice like that. I may use it for that effect on another piece but I'll be painting over it on this one once it all firms up.

    wishing well revisited

    ok hopefully the pics on this one will be right-side up. I am also posting the pics of the rock pile that started the project. I got some of the broken pavement pieces for dioramas and attempted to make a well the results were disappointing so I used foam board. enjoy.

    77343: Goroloth

    Love this mini, still considering basing it somehow, but for now the flying base will have to do. Rather quick job I did while visiting out cabin almost a year back. Very limited paint selection, brush selection and working space, but I think it worked out rather OK even if the blending leaves a lot to be desired.
  17. Hello all, Time for a new project besides the 5 I have on my desk and on the shelf Reason for this new project is that it is big and bulky and that seemed to work really well with the Clay Golem I won this beast in october on ebay in a bid for 41 dollar so it was a pretty good deal seeing it is for sale for 65 euros in the games workshop store.. It is a modelkit so lots of fiddeling with knives, files, sandpaper, drills, magnets, glue and tape.. The Beast can be build either as the vortex beast or the slaugtherbrute version and comes with 3 different optional heads, 2 pieces to put on his back, one vortex thingy and another euhm.. thingy.. Since I couldn't decide which I wanted to make I opted for all of them With the use of rare earth magnets I can now put all 3 heads on him. I am still working on the tail, 1 comes without the tail and the other with.. I need bigger/stronger magnets if I want to have that one removed aswell. The three heads and the 2 back pieces After I sprayed on the first coat of primer with my airbrush I found a few more glue lines and some gaps that needed filling. I used some liquid green stuff since the gaps were very narrow (but big enoug to notice) On the next few pics you can clearly see the neodymium magnets. The magnets are 4mm round 1mm thick and i needed to place 2 of them for a stabble fix on the body. I put Autumn Bronzeleaf in the photo to get an idea of the size of this beast. I just did my last bit of liquid green stuff and while that dries I am typing this.. Later tonight I hope to spray the last primer coat and the first base color.

    77194: C'Thulhu

    So, my Eberron players are very likely to face a large, otherworldy horror from Xoriat, the plane of madness. I have lots of options, what with the Daelkyr and all, but really, why pass up the chance to drop C'thulhu in front of a bunch of 13th level PCs? Why, indeed. Of course, this means I need to paint the big guy...and I really haven't painted much in nearly a year. So, out of practice as I am, I decided to spend President's day to, as the kids say, git'r dun. (do the kids still say that? Did they ever say that?) I started out trying something new. I've used artist's acrylics to good effect in the past, and for Christmas my parents sent me a set of something very cool: Turner's Acrylic Gouache. It has a lot of the properties of gouache, with the ease of use of acrylic paints...here's the box copy from a popular online art store: " Incredibly versatile, it will adhere to most substrates like wood, acrylic boards, stone, cloth, clay, metal, slate, glass, aluminum, iron, hard vinyl, styrofoam, stretched canvas, and properly-sized artist's papers. Turner Acryl Gouache is quick drying and water-reducible (2:1 paint to water ratio), yet water resistant when dry. It can be applied in multiple layers with no bleeding or streaking, while retaining a velvet-like, matte finish and brilliant color hue. " This stuff sticks to Bones like whoa, it's massively opaque with great coverage, dries totally matte ("velvet-like," indeed) and is crazy bright. So, for a basecoat, it's great. Here's an image of a basecoat with some initial attempts at highlighting: You can see, that "opaque" thing makes it hard to blend. I found that watering down about 10:1 still produced a chalky-at-best opacity. The good news is, this was one of the fastest, most complete basecoats I've ever put on a bones mini; Brown Liner need not apply (*gasp*). After discovering the acrylic gouache was not suitable for layering in the shadows and highlights, I went a bit Wappelly and did some really primitive versions of his shaded basecoat and glazing technique. All told, about eight hours of work (including the basecoat experiment) produced this tabletop-worthy paintjob: There's a lot I'd like to be better, most notably the underside of the wings and the lack of color in the glazing (I really just used two glazes to unify the highs/lows), but this needs to be ready for my next game session, and it will impress the players well enough. C&C as ever are welcome! Edit for typos..."Everron" sounds like a brand of battery, not a campaign setting. Although Cannith may very well manufacture Everron-brand batteries...

    Gutrot Spume

    Presenting Gutrot Spume, a Chaos Champion slowly mutating into some sort of tentacled thing. He's also my first finished mini of the year, and his WIP can be found here. Just had a massive amount of fun painting him up, and I think I did a fairly good job too. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, warming received.
  20. This year the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. First lot out, Six more of the Giant Tentacles from Shadows of Brimstone. I went for a "Simple Squid" colour scheme instead of an "Easy Octopus" this time around. Not much more to say about these. apart from MOAR TENTACLES! Tentacles Shadows of Brimstone (in both game sets) Flying Frog Productions HIPS plastic 30mm bases.
  21. This year the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Tentacles are really scary, especially when they are thick as a tree trunk and twice as long as a man is tall, and more importantly, burst forth to surround you from anywhere at any time in the dark! So also in Shadows of Brimstone! There is a set of six giant tentacles in each of the two games. Here is the first: These were all done by drybrushing, and quite quick to do. They do have some marring mould lines (or rather, the built up areas of plastic that is left after the actual lines are scraped off.) that are impossible to remove without some serious filing and greenstuffing. Not worth the effort. Tentacles Shadows of Brimstone (in both base game sets) Flying Frog Productions HIPS plastic 30mm bases.

    Seablade the Octopus

    Octopus toy chopped apart & hot glued to some metal washers. 2" washer for the body and 1" washers for the tentacles. Mostly just a blue food colouring & floor finish wash over the original green plastic. Pink paint for the tentacle suckers and some off blue lightened with white for the water and a permanent marker to dot the eyes.
