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.

      At the center of the summoning pentagram, a short humanoid materializes in a cloud of steam. You haven’t cast any spell or summon any creature but he’s there, standing still, staring at you with his malicious eyes. Dark red skin, two feet tall, with sharp pointy horns, bat-like wings and a barbed tail. This creature is the embodiment of a devil like you pictured them according to the tales you heard in your childhood. He’s holding its tail with one hand, and lazily starts balancing the tip of it from side to side. After a moment, the fiendish imp talks to you and offer you to make a deal. With a seducing voice, he says, I can fulfill one of you wish if you accept to do me a favor...   Here it is 02756, Familiar Pack IV Imp a pewter Dark Heaven Legends model. Sorry I coundn't find the name of sculptor.

      As you continue your descent even deeper into the bowels of the earth, you learn that it's not only the huge monsters that are to be feared. While you are sleeping, after your watch shift, a creature drops silently next to you. Without you realizing it, it manages to sting you right on the neck and starts to suck you blood. Sometime later, you woke up with an intense pain on the back of your neck. You realize with disgust what happened. Your wound is infected, and you feel very weak. After examining, your companions realize that you are infected with a serious illness. If you are not treated quickly, you will certainly die within the next few days.

      A giant arthropod comes crawling from under a pile of debris and dead leaves along the ruined wall of the tower. Instinctively, a violent emotion of disgust invades you as you see and hear a dozen more centipedes creep out from the rubbles. With aversion, you take out you weapon and ready yourself to scour the long destroyed fortification. Here's a  77427, Vermin Centiped Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

      A mass of ambulatory flame races across the ground, seeming to flicker and spark from a central, humanoid-shaped conflagration. Like a living inferno, the fire-creature’s burning dance of heat flame brings it ever closer. D&D 3.5 Monster Manual. Here's 03650, Fire Elemental a Dark Heaven Legends pewter model sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
