Lava Worm!!

39 posts in this topic

Brilliantly executed! As soon as I saw the first image I thought of the crackle paint. The other I'm assuming is going to be a frost worm. :upside:

 

We need to get you $0.40 so you can buy a piece of gray scrapbooking paper as a background. The blue tile actually detracts from your amazing work.

The ONLY thing that sprang to mind when looking at this is that i would have tried to grade the colors in to a white center in the hopes of making it look hotter. :)

 

Hats off to ya...

Believe it or not that thing was layered up from white to orange before I added the crackle paint. I used Red Shade to accentuate the cracks and drybrushed the black and a little grey. You cant see it in a still photo but anywhere you see color is actually translucent showing the heat underneath the "cooled" spots

Yeaaah... I think I'm gonna do that tomorrow.

I think it would go well in addition to have the transition in the mouth. A "cooling on the outside but a belly full of fire!" look.

 

Thats constructive criticism only, though. It looks great as is.

I may have to put my Sand Worm off to try the Lava Worm again... I'll practice the technique on a few bases using different 'interior' colors to see how things react. I also think I'm gonna go with yellow ink this time instead of Red Shade and drybrush Bloody Red instead of black and use that for what I used the grey for this time.

No no, constructive criticism is MOST welcome! I wouldn't get any better if I got butt-hurt every time I was given good advice! ::D:

 

I didn't mean for the mouth area to come out so dark. A lot of that is shadow from how I photographed it. I'll take better pictures after I get my new photo set-up put together.

      I got back to my Bones figures from the Kickstarter. The wolf familiar looks more like a dog to me. So I painted him to look like my wife's dog.

      A challenge in the "getting to know each other" thread from this month was to try something in the hobby you've never done before. Well, I've never done OSL. I decided to pick up the Bones Lich to use as the Lich Lord for Frostgrave, and figured I could try to match the effect shown on the "Thaw of the Lich Lord" cover with the glowing hands. 
       
      As the mini only has one free hand, I figure the green glow is only from one side... 
       

       
      I started out by priming with grey liner, then used R.A.M. Black on the robes, and linen white to try to figure out what is going to be hit by the glow. 
       

       
      Looks pretty good from this angle.
       
       
       
      Then it was time to add some color
       

       

       
      Thoughts? Comments? and most importantly, suggestions???

      I've been on a bit of a Sci-Fi kick recently, so I'm going to be converting and painting up the Bones version of the Nova Corp troops.
       
      The original head on this guy has a horrible mold line, so I swapped it with a GW Dark Eldar.  
                                                                                                                     
       
      Nothing wrong with her head, I just don't like having a bunch of clones, so I'll be giving her a bare head.
       

       
      With new head (from GW Wood Elves).                                                                                
                                                                                                                                                    

      These are the same figure. The one on the left has the head from the female trooper added. The one on the right is the original head; as you can see the detail is lousy, so it got cut off.
       

       
      The head/helmet with the lousy detail from the guy above is now hanging on her belt.        
       

       
      These guys have some extra equipment added.
       

       
      One of the guys from above is going to become a sniper.                                            
       

      And his rifle, courtesy of a GW Tau.

       
      That's all for now, but I have a few more conversions to do before painting starts.

      Last night I did a quick paint of a couple of minis while my wife painted a paint-by-numbers. I did a little bit of extra work this morning, and had some equipment malfunctions that damaged the minimal face I did paint. As this was all about a quick job, I only fixed the problem, but didn't redo it.
      The WIP is linked and photos will follow shortly in a separate post (I'm currently trapped by feline).
