  1. As usual, here's another project started ... this, along with some other stuff I will be posting { *insert future time code* } once I have made a bit more progress on them, are part of ... As some of you may have seen, Goremaw has been sitting on my desk since we moved in and I received my Bones 3 order. I recently received another Kickstarter order that started me down my Holiday Vacation path ... Stonehaven's Giants and Stonehaven's Adventurers. I received 11 new giants to add to the Joten horde. At the last Paint Day, I cleaned all eleven resin minis and then the following day I based them all and finished prepping them by priming them with my Armor Spray Primer. Six of them were primed black for a dark starting point and 5 were primed white. I also wanted to work on the base for my Reaper Fire Giant Jailor from Bones 3. He was "assembled" but wouldn't stay standing on his base very well on my desk. Keep an eye out for his WIP. That inevitably led to Goremaw getting his base suped up and his minor gaps filled. No, that's not sugar ... just cheap (clearance) sand. There are two grades of sand on there. The red is like sugar crystals. The darker brown around the base is actual Virginia sand from the beach near Yorktown. It filled in over the red sand and makes a more earthy surface than the "pebbles" the red sand will be. The whole thing is sealed with Testor's Dullcote to allow me to spray the Primer on it. As you can see the cracks in the bark make for excellent rocks. The pink from the sand will come into play a bit when I incorporate the blue from the Timeless Desert. Oh, right, I haven't explained my Blue Work of Markshire. Markshire is my PnP campaign world and was a Neverwinter Nights (video game) persistent world for a bit. The Blue Worms are rare monsters that inhabit the Timeless Desert. A frozen wasteland that used to be a vast grassland. You can read more about Markshire and specifically the Timeless Desert on my Markshire.com website. Here's a screenshot from the game area: Intentions for Goremaw: Blue Hide with lighter blue, almost white Ridges. Blue similar to the Horizon in the pic above. The Spines on the body will be darker colored. Not sure if it will be a blue or perhaps a black like a claw. The mandibles will be purplish color, closer to mauve. The fangs will be bright white at the points and duller near the mandibles. The inner mouth will be more classic red coloring The belly will be a lighter blue tinged with a pink/purple for the softer tissue The sand will reflect the twilight blue of the desert pictured above, which is why the red will help bring in some depth of color. The stones will all be granite and similar in coloring There you have it. The start of the Holiday Vacation Series '17. Oh, yeah, you may be wonder what I mean by "Holiday Vacation Series" ... well, I have 8 days of vacation left and two large holidays. I simply don't have the means to take two the time in one large vacation. So I've scheduled myself to be off 4 Mondays prior to my usual Christmas week vacation between Christmas day and New Year's day. By far the SLOWEST week of our year. So, technically, this gives me ... does the math ... a lot of days off. We close for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve are also paid holidays. But, what exactly am I going to be doing with this series ... nothing specific. I am just trying to keep myself motivated and you all excited for the next post. Stay tuned and Enjoy
  2. Raging Heroes Worm Riders

    Sorry for the terrible pic but I promised to show the dark elf worm riders with my modded weapons and assembled worms. The pic also shows the legs of one of the worms as I received them and with my sculpting add ons. The legs looked unfinished to me so I roughed them up and finished them myself. The rest of the models were very detailed so it's weird they didn't do the legs. I figure I might as well do the command group too so I'll upload more pics of them hopefully better pics.
  3. Goremaw - Great Maw (Bones 3)

    Hi, Here is my first painted mini from Bones 3: the "Great Maw". I really love the size and weight of this "miniature" (not sure if we can still cal it "mini"). Most of the paint was done with washes on simple black and white primer. I added some high gloss varnish and some 2 part epoxy glue in some places for added slime effect. C&C Welcome. And at least, now, my Mashaaf has a friend to terrorize players with:
  4. Great (colorful) Worm 77006

    While waiting for water effects to dry (more boring than paint) I finished up a couple minis that have been on the desk for a while. His one here is a favorite. Got all rainbow inspired when painting up a great worm. This was the first mini where I'd used the sand/gravel and glue mix to "sculpt" a base. Had lots of rocks to stick into it as it dried. After a dark primer and light drybrush, I liked the look of it so much I didn't want to paint over it for a few months. Well I finally brought it back to the painting desk about a month ago and have been hitting the rocks with various leftover Browns and grays. I was not entirely happy with he underside until I thought to drybrush a fleshy color (suntan flesh) and it really did it for me. What do you think?
  5. 77006: Great Worm

    Hi everyone, Here is a piece i could almost done completely by airbrush, thanks to the overall simplicity of design and that will bring terror to our Frostgrave games from now on :)
  6. Working on secret sophie gift #2.. thought I'd try out the new light box a bit too..
  7. Mashaaf, Great Old One (Bones) (77375)

    A few months ago I began working on the Mashaaf, Great Old One, add-on figure from Bones II, and had gotten as far as washing it, assembling it, and spraying it with a base coat. It had then sat gathering dust, waiting for me to find inspiration to complete it. Then, with the successful competition of my Kalladrax figure a couple weeks ago, I felt emboldened to bite the bullet and finish this figure up as well. When purchasing this figure I had some vague idea of using it for my Pulp mash-up Space1889/John Carter of Mars games, so I pictured in some sort of tan,brown,reddish type of color scheme. However, I didn't want to limit it to just Mars, so I wanted to tone the base colors down so they might just as well blend in with any desert setting. I'm happy with how it turned out, and look forward to getting it into a game. :) Full step-by-step painting article on my blog: Painting Mashaaf
  8. Worm Golem

  9. Secret Sophie for Fealron

    These are the minis I painted for Fealron for Secret Sophie. He said he was wanting some monsters that would live in a cavern or ice cavern. So, I imagined Ankheg (77230) as the mother and the channel grub (77226) as the larva. I painted the channel grub in blues and purples with yucky pink suckers. I used a little water effect on the slime trail it was sitting on. (Like a giant yucky slug!) I just painted the base for gaming like it was shiny ice. I used a gloss varnish because I wanted the grub to look slimy and icky! I wanted to use the same color scheme for the mother but I wanted her to look like she had a hard shell. I wanted it to look slightly iridescent like a big bug. I used shades of purple and blue and mixed in some bronze metallic. It doesn't show well in the pictures. I painted her base to match the grub's. The last guy is Kegg, Bugbear Hunter (77233). I wanted him to be usable in or out of a cavern. I gave him a badger fur pattern. I wanted him to appear to live in a colder climate so his loincloth is made from the pelt of a snow leopard. I tried my hand at "rusting" his shield and axe. I ended up really liking him and if I didn't have so many minis in queue, I would have to make a tribe of bugbears! I love the bugbears anyway! I hope these 3 cause a lot of trouble for some adventurers!
  10. http://www.hodderscape.co.uk/11-majestic-handmade-dune-sandworms/ I just noticed the second one is actually a worm sign. Augh.
  11. (02521) Cavern Worm

    This is a really odd figure, but I was looking for a burrowing creature, and this guy fit the bill. Biggest challenge was to find a paint scheme that looked rocky and organic at the same time. A floor wax coating on the teeth and tongue after the flat sealer gave the appropriate "wet" appearance. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  12. Frost Wyrm Sculpted by Kevin Williams I got Auberon for the exchange. I decided to go a different direction for this than the name would suggest, "frost." The "spots" are GW:brown (that I can't remember the name of right now) with upper highlights using Pearl White (a metallic paint) then a a glaze of a Vallejo Orange and a re-highlight of the Pearl white. The eyes are ALL metallic's and the base is from the Michael's Arts and Craft. Wood rounds. I used Reaper Ginger bread paint for the base, washed it and dry brushed it. All in all I think it turned out well. For my first large monster I think it looks good. I hope Auberon likes it.
  13. Rugg, Bugbear Leader One of the Bones2 bugbears. I'm really pleased with the result. Great Worm The very popular great worm. My version doesn't hold any of the vast creativity that has been unleashed upon this model but I think it turned out quite nice despite it's "mundaness".
  14. 02730: Cavern Crawler

    NPC beasty in my game
  15. Well this my take on the Mashaaf figure. Mashaaf the Devourer of Worlds. ~She is One of the Great old ones from the outer planes. Her home is a deep chasm in the bowls of the earth. She only surfaces to feed during great cataclysmic events or when called upon by her followers with a horrific ceremony. Legends say she feeds on the nightmares of people during times of strife.~ The figure to me looks to be a amalgamation of Slug, Maggot, Caterpillar, Spider and maybe some Crab. I tried to make it look as though her top was possibly a hard surface the stone fused to it. I also tried to make the belly portion look slimy and light emitting like a glow worm. I also wanted to try and make it look like she had purple internals partially showing through her skin, but wasn't able to figure out how to do it. In the process I have about 8 coats of various paints on the belly. So I just went with stripes for coloration contrasts. Also the glow effect I tried on the base doesn't show to well in the photos but it is obvious when looking at it. I'm still learning and developing my skills and being my 3rd figure to do since my long (25+ years) break from painting I like it. Was fun painting and putting the base together. Also I am using a tablet for my camera and no light box. Still trying to figure out how to take good pictures too. 3 different front views hoping you can see the glow and eyes. First time ever doing multicolored eyes effect. 2 side views for the back detail. Its another perspective on the figure. I brought to the game room and the guys liked it and can't wait to see it used in a game. C&C always appreciated. Joe
  16. The Summoning (Sorceress & Worm)

    THE SORCERESS AND THE WORM The woman stood in the arid desert, her living book held in her hand and she read the arcane words from within. Her eyes glowing blue, she scanned the pages more intently, the mouth on the book uttered the strange tongue in concert, her upraised right hand became wreathed in flame and suddenly the ground erupted! The great sand worm roared forth at her summons to do her bidding and destroy her enemies... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Figures: Nonalla Ellinad / Great Worm Manufacturer: Reaper for both SKU #'s: 03667 / 77006 Materials: Pewter / Bones Plastic Sculptors: Bob Ridolfi / Michael Brower WIP Pics: Located Here! This piece is for my Summer 2014 Figure Exchange partner, figured I'd go ahead and post it up now and leave the guessing as to WHO is going to get it. Anyhow, you may see the "Dune" theme that I used throughout with the colors and a few other tiny details. I also used Velcro on the piece which is super-glued to the bottom of the figures 1 inch base and 2 inch base, this allows them to be used in gaming at the table at normal scale and then be attached to the display base when not in use and not have to worry about them falling off if bumped. Warning! Picture heavy due to the nature of the piece with 2 figures. Comments and Critiques are welcomed & appreciated, thank you for looking!
  17. 77006: Great Worm - BONES

    So I got sidetracked from LPK2 a bit by RL... and a Great Worm. Painted up for tabletop use, I think it turned out pretty well. I keep surprising myself with how not sucky I can be if I take time to actually do it properly. I'm going to list what I used for paints mostly for my own reference than anything else. Body: Based with HD Gem Purple, washed with a mix of HD Twilight Purple and Black Wash. Belly: Base HD Gem Purple, layered up through Clear Magenta, up to HD Entrail Pink Pustule/Bumps: Based with Clear Red, then layered up to HD Fireball Orange, and then spotted with a bit of HD Golden Yellow. Rocks: Based with HD Dirty Grey, washed with a mix of Brown Liner and Black Wash (I really like this mix), Then dry-brushed up HD Dirty Grey, HD Concrete Grey, and finally a mix of HD Concrete Grey, and Sample Tan (a good of a name as any). Mouth: Linen White, washed with the same wash from body, then I decided I didn't like it and did a heavy glaze of Oiled Leather. Teeth: Based HD Tusk Ivory, then highlighted with Linen White. C&C welcome; Thanks :)
  18. Rock worm

  19. 77006: Great Worm

    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.
  20. Samurai Jack's workbench...

    Started working on two more mini's... Stone worm and Minotaur. Primed and basecoat started
  21. Finally happy with where this is at.. hoping to get it out to the post office tomorrow for the recipient.. FYI the slime also glows in the dark..
  22. Lava Worm!!

    Lava Worm!! Having been inspired by all of the BONES Worms lately I devised a number of variations and decided on two of them (outside of the traditional Purple Worm). The first you see below. I would very much like to give thanks to MonkeySloth for sharing with us the DISTRESS Crackle Paint. You can check out his tutorial on Ice Bases here.
