77372 Burrowing Horror

Recommended Posts

Weirdly, I rather like your use of purple. Most bulettes I have seen tend to follow either the first edition Monster Manual's color scheme, or the WOTC prepaints color scheme. YOURS, on the other hand, is more earthtoned, and kinda... realistic, for a big burrowing critter. Nice highlighting. Now I wanna get mine out...

I like him!  If you feel like the purple scales are too much, I'd maybe suggest giving the plates and scales a light wash with another color to tie them together a bit (dark green? burgundy?).  Or bring some of the plate colors down to wash the scales with, and leave the plates as is, since those do look quite finished and nice.


But I do think he looks pretty cool as-is.  Purple people-eater!

I like it. I could see a wash of the scales to make the tone different than the claws, but it looks fine as is. I just prepped mine this weekend and this is another cool scheme to consider.

hmm basing.. he fits on a 3" base, mostly. 


any suggestions on this guy? 

I'd say it looks too small for a 3" round base, I plan to put mine on a 1.5" x 3" Pill base. Maybe elevated slightly on a stone. If you have any vehicles from the Mechwarrior Clix, they are that 1.5"x3" size.


Maybe make the under the main fin area meat coloured since thats a mythical weak spot for them. I think metallic highlights would look cool on back plates and leg scales.

I agree, I really like the dull purple color and I do like the fact his claws are pretty much the same color but well highlighted. All this against the contrast of his very white smile.....

      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”.

      Wanted to paint up some halloween themed minis in October so I painted up Gauntfield. He's on a base from Secret Weapon. He was a lot of fun, thanks for reading!

      Painted up Feiya for my tempest cleric and painted up this other miniature that I don't know the name or number of (unreleased as of now I think) for my husband's rogue. I tried to paint his poncho sort of like schemes from Clint Eastwood's characters in the Sergio Leone movies. Feiya's base is milliput using a Green Stuff world roller (aztec) and the guy's base is one of the (again, Aztec series) Dragon Forge pre-made bases. Thanks for reading

      I'm kinda on time!

      Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual.
      All the information you need should be here.

      Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it.

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      (Is this a re-hash? I don't recall.)
      Fall! Modify/paint a mini/minis to be falling/fallen. (Translate fallen how you will.)

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      December 14th is National Bouillabaisse Day.  For those unfamiliar, this is a Fish Stew from southern France. Paint a mini that incorporates a fish motif.

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Under Wraps:
      Paint a mini so that anything that any armor-weapons-cloth-etc looks like it's patterned wrapping paper. This is assuming a humanoid figure. Dragons or such apply the same challenge to the whole body.

      Stop the presses!
      Bonus, The third!
      With the breaking news of our beloved space pope leaving Reaper - let's see what you can paint up as a tribute to him. Bonus points for actually making a "bryanzilla" mini accurate to the avatar.

      Good luck

      The game is made up and the points don't matter
