Lost World Project Glitterwolf Paints Coldblooded Creatures and Conquistadores

1350 posts in this topic

I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun.

 

It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians.

Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects.

 

I will happily include any monster I think will fit.

Khanjira will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God.

 

I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your)  fun to create.

 

EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story.

          This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures.

 

EDIT: And now it will also include some Undead!

 

***********

 

Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now.

The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees.

Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance!

 

He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained.

Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it.

With this he had convinced the men to follow him.

Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it.

 

They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief.

He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons.

Nothing would stop them!

 

Finally they reached a clearance.

The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again.

They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick.

 

Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing.

Birds flew away, trees where falling!

 

Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground.

A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared.

One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it.

 

Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle.

I will collect a lot...Bones III is ordered and will bring me The Jungle Titan, Plant Dragon, Jungle Plants, Froghemoth and Dagon and a Werecroc among other things.

 

Here is what I have already.

 

Not sure if all will be used, I'm still thinking about the Ice Devil and such things.

If I do I might also add an Ankheg and more insectlike Critters.

 

Here we have a DSA T-Rex, Bones and Metal Dragonmen, The Brood Dragon, Reptus Lizardmen, Lizardmen, DSA Gatorman, Frogmen, all kinds of Snakemen, Mariliths and Snakes, Axebeak.

Brood of Payanak and an Othsworn Armadillo in Inca gear which would make a nice addition.

 

I believe many Jungle Animals will join this army out of fear or necessity.

Oh and a GW Stegadon and Terradons ( Metal/no riders) are on their way too.

Also I still have a monitor lizard familiar somewhere.

 

The Idea Is to build regiments. Maybe mixed or each species it's own regiment.

Must think about it.

 

Monsters and such sometimes as Unit fillers sometimes as units on their own.

 

Little scenes as unit fillers

 

And lots of different colours.

HOORAY FOR BIG PROJECTS! This has a lot of potential for an ongoing creation of MONUMENTAL proportions...if you feel like it.

As a long time painter of "armies", for myself, but mostly for other Folk, I'm looking forward to your progress...I love Group Photos.

Have FUN with it all!

I know I know...

 

But the Lizards, Frogs and Snakes will be the majority of the Army.

The Dinos will be the eyecatchers I hope.

 

Oh, And SIri...I LOVE your Dino paintings and the Carnosaur you're painting.

 

I wished there were a few good 28mm feathered Dinos out there,

Like a feathered T-Rex.

 

For now it will have to be the Fantasy Style Dino without feathers.

 

I've lately ordered a lot more minis and bases.

All for this fun army.

 

Prepping and painting starts today.

 

( slow...because I also have the nativity set, the Countess and a Dragon Hatchling on the table)

 

Hope to show some progress later this day.

**** START!!!***

 

 

So I will start the project with a mini I have had for decades...

:

This is a T-Rex from DSA, Das Schwartze Auge ( The Dark Eye ). The Mini is Called : The Devourer.

 

He is kinda big so instead of any unit filler, this one will be a solo Monster.

 

I will use predominantly square bases for the Army, but I did have some Oval and round Jungle bases already.

This is a 60mm Microart Studio Base.

 

I figured it would look great with him.

But I hated the metal brocolli.

 

Clippers and Jeweler Saw applied, drilling the legs with a paperclip for pinning.

So I applied a bit of Vallejo Surface primer and Heavy Warm Grey for the inside of the mouth.

I will now paint his teeth with a Reaper Bone triad.

 

While doing this, the Mailman came!!

 

He brought me the Ebay Order.. A Metal OOP Stegadon from GW ( No Riders) and 2 Terradons ( one is missing a head, but I knew that,. It will be sculpted)

 

The Stegadon will be done later, he will get the Oval Jungle base from Basicks.

 

Crew will be Reaper. I'm not sure yet if it will be Lizardmen, Frogmen, Turtle Men or Reptus..

 

The Terradon will be without Riders.

I want them to be the Flying monsters.

 

And I don't play games with them anyway.

This Army is purely for me.. ( maybe in the afterlife they will protect me, like the terracotta Army ::P: )

      So, here are two miniatures I just got done painting and basing last night.  I ended up painting these two as well as another figure (front with a link for nudity) at the same time because I was starting out with the same skin colors, beginning with Tanned Skin. 
       
      One thing I did with the female pirate's sword and metal was I used Ashen Blue as my base color, then used deeper blues, then dark elf skin and shadow, then black, and worked upwards with lighter greys and finally white.  
       
      With the bases, which I also do very simply, I did the pirate bases starting with a base of blonde hair, then terran khaki.  The thought was to make sand, but who knows how well that worked out.  
       


       

       
      Here is the link to the third miniature:
       
      http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:02-806_flute8.JPG
       

       
      And here is the photo this figure came from:
       
       

       
       
      And a question, one of the doubts I had was about the female pirate, should I have lightened her eyebrows?

      Another piece for my Lost World Project.
       
      WIP here:
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/
       
      I was inspired by @malefactus who made a few scenic photo backdrop boards. ( He also send me the War Turtle as a gift, he is in the last pic)
      I figured I'll give it a try, would be nice to take pics of finished recruits and monsters in the right surroundings.
      So I made this little board out of foam, Some greenstuff and Milliput on wood to create an Aztec Style Dungeon Door, I made the glyphs using a Greenstuffworld Rolling Pin.
      Vegetation made with a little plastic plant from a thrift store, Aztec Ruins from Greenstuffworld and lots of moss/flock and such which were a gift from the awesome @knarthex.
       
      Hope you enjoy it
       
      I have taken pics of my Lost World minis in this background and they can be seen in my Lost World Project.
      A few teasers are in here.
       
      Nothing too complicated, I kept it simple because it is "just" a backdrop.
      I had fun making it.
      Maybe I will make another one with an Undead/Gothic theme one day too.
       
      Well here it is.

      The undead are always fun and easy to paint. Id like to accumulate more varieties in the future. This mummy practically painted himself.

      And here we are - after 48 hours of building time and another 20 or so hours of drying, our beach diorama is finally done. Check here for the WIP Thread ->Let's Make a Present! Combat divers on the beach<-
       
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
       
    • By Knochensack
      When my first present - please check here ->Let's present a ... present! Owl Mage<- was received pretty well by our female colleage, my boss asked me to do more.
       
      This time the task was to make a present for another colleague who left us. As he was in the military and also is a passionate diver, I thought of something military.
      What would be a better fit than German combat divers (Kampfschwimmer)? Luckily I found a bunch of German frogmen miniatures and ordered them immediately.
      When I told my boss what I had in mind, she asked me to include the following elements:
       
      1st: Frogmen
      2nd: An owl (of course)
      3rd: an exit
      4th: a sign that links the colleague to our work.
      Everything else was free for me to develop.

      As Frogmen often use beaches to infiltrate or exfiltrate an area, the overall idea was to create a beach setting.
      So I went down to the beach, spent some hours there swimming, enjoying the sun and making sketches, until I finally had an idea what I wanted the diorama to be like.




       
      The owl should be sitting on a sign that warned of mines - but instead of a mines warning there should be an inside joke written on the board we often did at work.
      The exit should be between two dunes and be marked by another sign. And the Kampfschwimmer unit should be astonished by what they witnessed.
       
      So I started painting the combat divers.


       
      After that I assembled the owl, used plastic styrene to cut out two signs, assembled them an started painting.


       
      Still I had one problem - the showcase I ordered ... *chuckles* didn't show up. That sounds funny at the moment but should be a problem later on. And as I was doing a second diorama at the same time, the pressure increased ... *Insert creepy music here*
