KD: Monster Assemble! [Open]

Recommended Posts

They are the bonus secret minis on the antelope sprue. They are being referred to as "Intimacy" online. They are proving to be quite the challenge for people to assemble. Lots of discussion on what goes where. This is the most plausible build I have seen so far. I personally am considering waiting for at least an official assembled shot.

I am using superglue for some parts and plastic glue for others. Which one depends a lot on surface area for the join. Wrists, for example, will all be plastic glue. Feet-to-base, too.

Definitely plastic cement. I used super glue on a couple, but the cement not only makes a stronger join it also make assembly easier.

 

"Intimacy" is the name stamped on the sprue. They match the art for that section of the rule book. An official picture would definitely help, though I'm reasonably confident in what I did. The big issue is that there is another hole in the woman's back suggesting something is supposed to fit there. So far though the only thing I've seen attached there is the bit of cloth I have as the man's skirt.

That explains why I hadn't seen them before, I abandoned most places discussing Monster as soon as the core boxes started showing up, want to go into the game as blind as possible!

 

@Pingo - I'm using plastic glue, Revell Contacta to be precise.

I actually have that sprue out too work on tonight.  It is rather annoying that he went to the effort of labeling the prologue sprue and then did nothing with this one.  I'll take some pictures along the way.

As promised, I've started working on the Screaming Antelope/The Hand/Intimacy sprue.  We acknowledge it is "Intimacy" because the sprue says so.  ^_^   When approaching a problem like this my first step is to eliminate that which is know, in this case the monsters.  For something a little different, I snapped a pic of the sprue in question and then proceeded to highlight the parts I'll be using. First up is the "Screaming Antelope."  Overall it is a straightforward build.  As mentioned above, one of its ears needed a little trimming to fit.  My cast also had an issue with one of its legs, almost like a mold slip.  I trimmed part of it down and plan to build the rest of it up later.

Next up is The Hand, which I have removed but not yet assembled.  This leaves just the "Intimacy" minis attached.

Superglue.  And yes- they broke at the joint.  Sigh. I'll break out the 2-part epoxy for the bigger minis.

Plastic model cement will hold just as well, if not better, than the epoxy and be much easier to use.

Just be really serious about good ventilation.

      '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.

      I am playing in the Pathfinder "Ruins of Azlant" Adventure Path campaign.  A few of the PCs have some healing magic, but we didn't have an actual cleric until a PC recently took the Leadership feat, and an NPC cleric joined the party as his cohort.   (Click here for the Show-Off thread about the figure that I use for my character.)
      The new cohort-cleric, Father Kurvis, is middle-aged and acts like a curmudgeon but has a kind heart.  He worships Abadar, the god of cities, law, merchants, and wealth.  Abadar's colors are gold and black, and his holy symbol is a golden key.
      Our GM has an extensive collection of prepainted plastic figures (D&D and Pathfinder), and this Village Priest seemed appropriate.  It is from a 2005 D&D miniatures release.   I offered to repaint it to be specifically Kurvis.
      Two hours of slinging paint got me to "finished" ... and after I took the first set of photos, I saw how bugged and asymmetrical his eyes were, so I just spent a few more minutes touching them up.
       
      Before and after:
       

       

       
      Enjoy,

      A couple of my players/friends gave me this and a gelatinous cube for Christmas and said, "Please don't kill us!" So hopefully he won't smush their characters too much!
       
      I wanted to give him a little bit of color so I did some purple and pink on some of the leaves as well as bright mushrooms. I used a few tufts of foliage and moss on him. I didn't want to overdo it and cover too much of the figure. I like how he came out.

      I really love it anytime I get to paint those beautiful miniatures from Kingdom Death: Monster.
      The Kingsman was no exception. While is pose is stoic rather than dynamic, the details on the armor just sang out.
      My client wanted to make sure that he wasn’t too dark (with Kingdom Death miniatures, it is pretty easy to just use a lot of dark colors) so I made sure the accenting reds were bright enough to compensate, while still getting darker towards his feet.
