Here's another aberration I completed last weekend. This is an update from the Dung Monster I posted in June 2017. Reaper Miniatures 02737, Dung Monster was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It can also be found in the 10031, Dungeon Horrors Box Set. I added four tentacles around its maw. The tentacles are from Reaper Miniatures 03334, Creature Components. I recently added the drools and completed the base.
These are the two hyenas from Jason Wiebe's 03277: Hyena Pack (2). I painted them up as spotted hyenas, as that is what they most look like. I find I am enjoying painting realistic mammals because it gives a lot of opportunity for play with a fairly limited palette. (See, for example, how I recently painted wolves and wolves and wolves, and what I learned from doing it.)
There is no WIP thread.
I have a photo book of Zimbabwe, so I played a little bit with backgrounds.
These are Wererats, not Skaven at all:
Being Bones, they are slightly soft in the details, especially the smaller ones. They are made of the slightly more rigid Bones material that most of the second kickstarter Bones were done in, and as such the thinner bits like blades and tails are still flexible, but not rubbery or so bendy as to droop under their own weight as has been known to happen to some Bones in extreme poses or with only the legs supporting heavy bodies, similar to the poses of these minis.
However, these are all rigid enough not to have any such problems. So that is a win in my book.
77292: Giant Wererat:
Erring on the side of caution with the backside picture, due to the ...huevos on display
The Rat Ogre (still can’t bring myself to call it a “Rat Ogor”) certainly has got a pair.
77293: Wererat Berserker
77294: Wererat Stalker
77295: Wererat Assassin
These are all sculpted by Jason Wiebe according to the reaper store.
Early last year, I pledged on Kickstarter for the Circle of Chaos Warband by Curtis Fell of Ramshackle Games fame, but I did not add on for the Rhinotaur at that time.
...So when I received the original 7 minis of the Circle, I kicked myself for not adding it on. The minis were weird-in-a-good-way designs by several sculptors, and great quality casts, and were all painted late last year.
When the shiny syndrome at last overpowered me, I contacted Mr Fell, and he graciously ordred a Rhinotaur cast up and sent to me.
After prepping, I added one of my 3D printed oval bases, and it has been standing around on my desk ever since, trying to get my attention.
Which it in the end, did.
"Very few mutations survive conception. Fewer still survive birth. Some are so twisted and hideous, the host's birthing screams must be silenced to maintain a shred of sanity. This begins the tale of one such horror, unleashed upon a blighted world. A beast of war and ruin so terrible a strong man's guts turn to water at the sight of it. A pair of ancient cleaving swords it yields, whirling and feinting despite its armored bulk. It's mighty horns used to batter and break and pierce, are sharp enough to penetrate a dragon's hide. But despite all of this, despite the horrible carnage, the hacking, the trampling, the impaling, the worst of it is its battle cry. Pig snorting and squealing in battle, reaching its fervor. And suddenly, blood covered and splattered with gore, it opens its jagged mouth and emits the piercing yet pure and joyful squeals of a baby." -from the KS update introducing the Rhinotaur addon.
The completed warband in all it's glory.

Good communication, great product, timely fulfilment. A+ would back again.
