Lost World Project Glitterwolf Paints Coldblooded Creatures and Conquistadores

Let me bore you with some more storytelling.

 

********************************

Getting to know each other.

 

Cpt. Aguilera drank more of his "wine" he felt more alive with each sip.

He couldn't help wondering where Tegwen got the blood from.

A bit worried he asked her about it.

 

Tegwen smiled revealing her sharp fangs.

You're still afraid that I'm evil aren't you?

I will tell you where I get the blood from and then I will tell you my story.

 

As you have seen the trees here are alive and there is a small green area around them.

This part of the lands is alive.

A bit further south there is a larger part I left untouched.

There my people live.

 

Your people? Aguilera asked.

Yes, there is a village and farms and the people there live in peace and safety.

They are surrounded by the deadlands and should they try to leave they will never reach the borders without dying.

As any creature that enters my lands will do when it roams around too long in the deadlands.

 

You might think that's cruel and evil, but see...these people have no enemies.

There is no war, no disease, no famine.

They live there and can be happy.

No one will bother them.

 

These people consider me to be their Goddess.

And all I ask in return for their protection is a little blood.

Every now and then I will collect some blood from them.

Oh don't worry, I don't kill any in the process!!

 

Also these people provide me with fresh servants.

When one of them dies from natural causes or accident, I will raise the corpse and it will become one of my servants.

See? Nothing evil here..

They are actually quite happy!

 

Aguilera thought about it.

I guess you're a better ruler than most.

Tegwen smiled again.

Good! Now that we've covered that I will tell you my history.

Some more tales, tell me if you get bored with it all..

 

******************

Premonition

 

Fillippa and Mitla had taken Mon-Ark out for a ride.

They had left the caves and had been riding for a few hours now.

Mon-Ark seemed to enjoy herself.

 

Fillippa and Mitla decided to dismount and sat down near a small stream.

They ate some fruits while Mon-Ark drank from the stream.

For a few moments there was nothing but happiness as if the war didn't exist.

 

Suddenly a loud roar was heard, louder than anything else they had heard before.

Mon-Ark cowered, the Jungle fell silent.

No birds or other creatures made any sounds.

Even the insects were quiet.

 

Fillippa drew his pistol and sword, Mitla took her bow and held an arrow ready.

Mon-Ark had positioned herself behind them as if she was certain her masters would protect her.

Then the trees started falling.

 

Another loud roar, more trees fell and to their dismay some trees seemed to be on fire!

Suddenly in a misty cloud the image of Tanith appeared.

HE HAS RISEN!!!! She said before dissapearing again.

 

Fillippa held his breath when he saw it.

The enormous creature towered above the trees.

With his arms he ripped the trees apart and with his breath he set them on fire!

Mitla screamed, The Living Lizard God!!!

 

The creature walked on two legs it's tail swung around knocking more trees over.

It's body was covered in plates and spikes.

Horns adorned it's vicious head.

 

Then it had reached the other side of the stream, it looked down on them and smoke rose from it's nostrils.

Mon-Ark roared and attacked, she leapt over the small stream in an effort to attack the Living Lizard God.

She was caught in mid-air and the creature ripped her apart as if she was a rag doll.

NNNOOOOO!!!! Fillippa screamed and he fired his pistol.

The bullet bounced off the armored plates and the monster turned it's attention to them.

 

Mitla fired her arrow to no avail, she dropped the bow and tried to connect with the beast's mind.

Then the Living Lizard God opened it's mouth and incinerated her in flames.

Fillippa went mad with grief and rage, the creature stepped over the stream as if it was a mere puddle.

Sword in hand he attacked.

 

The creature's tail swept him aside.

He landed against a tree and lost consciousness.

All went black.

 

He felt something against his shoulders.

Bathing in sweat he woke up.

Mitla sat beside his bed.

Having a bad dream? She asked...

Some story in between painting.

 

*********

 

Prophecies

 

Fillippa and Mitla discussed his nightmare, was this just a dream or was this a warning of things to come?

I don't  understand, Fillippa said, in my dream the Living Lizard God was a huge horned reptile, walking on two legs and with a huge tail.

The first time you showed me the prophecy, there was a huge serpent drawn and the Chosen One fought it.

Tanith is a huge serpent, but she is our ally, what is going on?

 

Mitla took the scroll and looked at it again.

The serpent drawn here is feathered and with wings, so it isn't Tanith.

No, Fillippa said, but it isn't the Living Lizard God either.

What am I supposed to face?

 

Let's bring Alsnia into this.

But she is just a child, Fillippa muttered.

She is also the high priestess of Tanith, she might know more about such things than you think.

 

Alsnia joined them, in any case, prophecies are vague and open to interpretation, she said.

Your scroll is not complete either, Alsnia told Mitla.

Xolotl also has told us about the prophecy, from the look of it, the Chosen One will have to face several monsters before he will face the Living Lizard God himself.

This feathered serpent is a quetzalcoatl, I think the Frogking has more creatures at his disposal.

 

We must prevent him from summoning the Living Lizard God, he needs the Orb of Tanith for that, and I have it!!! Alsnia said.

Fillippa remembered his dream, we should guard it with our lives!

I doubt if we could defeat the Living Lizard God.

 

Mitla and Alsnia agreed

Can the Frogking summon his God without that Orb? Fillippa asked.

I don't think so, Alsnia said, he could try, but if the ritual is not complete or performed wrong, there is no way to tell what will happen then!

      I finally got around to taking photo's of MuuMuu.  I got her orgianlly as a possible bonus figure for modern Zombicide.  Never got around to painting her before getting sucked into black plague.  So I decided to finisher up.  Here is MuuMuu:


      Thanks for any looking and any C&C you feel like giving.

      Continuing my paint up of all the bosses in the Forge of Fury, here is Kavorgh, painted up to be the Orc Wight Champion.  My first time playing with a light box to get better pictures too :)

      Reaper Miniatures 03716 Ghouls sculpted by Bob Ridolfi and old school RAFM 02953 Ghoul Warlock.
       
      I painted these in August for a D&D encounter but I had to repaint them because the varnish has created a white fume all over the models when I sealed them. It probably happened to many of you as well. It was the third time I wasted painted models because of that undesirable fume without being able to put my finger on the reason why. I think I now know why it happen.
       
      Trick or treat : A true horror story
       
      It was very humid outside that last August. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to shelter myself in the basement while I was speed painting some exquisite Reaper Miniature models. Late that day, as I was done painting a hand full of Undead models, I decided to seal them with that half-full / half-empty "you choose" can of anti shine matt varnish. It's important to mention that I had already used that very same spray can a month earlier.
       
      This being said, after shaking the spray can for a good minute or so, I opened the basement door leading into the backyard. Immediatly, a draft of hot and humid air invaded the doorway and shook my face. I remember swearing when I felt the moisture condensing to beads of sweat on my skin. Without losing a second, wanting to get back to shelter in my man cave, I spray some figurines. In the darkness of the night, everything seemend to be allright under the dim light of the portico.
       
      The day after, I noticed the damage. By a terrible curse, the models I spayed the night before were covered with a thin, powdery layer of white dust. I gazed around looking for sneering Gremlins but saw nothing unusual. Disconcerted, I became aware of the extent of the damage. There has to be a logical explanation behind this ghouly phenomenon.
       
      As much as I like science fiction and horror stories, I had to find a scientific explanation to all this madness. Wasting other models by this evil spell was not an option. I reused the same spay can to make a test. The only parameter that seemed to be different was the fact that it was very humid and hot outside the night before.
       
      I did not want to ruin hours of time spent painting another model to do this test. So, I sprayed a colored cardboard. Furthermore, I made an exception to the sanitary rule and used the spray can inside. The result was surprising. Even though I was using the same spay can, there was no fume this time. Since then, I've been reusing that same spry can on other models whitout any problem.
       
      What happened that draid August night? Was it the imps playing tricks on me or just the excessive difference of temperature and the heavy humidity in the air catched by the aerosol varnish? I will probably never know but one thing is for sure, I will always test my spray can on an expendable object before spraying my art.

      Right, I hemmed and hawed over the best way to show these off, and sadly, ultimately decided on linking to an external album, rather than uploading 70 some odd photos to Reaper's servers. I've shown off several of these minis/units before over time, but I just got a new phone with a way nicer camera and I thought it would be nice to get the whole thing documented. I'm nowhere near done, I have always enjoyed painting the Undead and will likely continue to add to it forever, but here it is in it's current state. It's based for Kings of War, includes tons of Reaper, Mantic, GW, and a few other manufacturer's in small quantities as well. 

      Enough talk, here's the album:
      https://photos.app.goo.gl/CrTmoTDLmJte6agt9

      And here's a sample excerpt:

       
      It's about 5 years +/- in the making but includes some minis from my previous war gaming days as well, I think all were repainted though. 
       
      EDIT: Apologies, some of the models are dustier than I realized. Next time I get shots I'll dust first. There's even a small cobweb on one, but that kinda looks awesome. The dust not so much.

      Thanks for looking!

      A rotting stench catches you nose. You see a creature slowly moving in your direction waving a dagger. At first, it looks like a beggar wearing rags. He utters a low moan and you realize as it's coming out of the shadows that he's missing part of its scalp and has a gaping hole in its abdomen through which you see his ribs and his petrified organs. Turning to the cleric, you scream with horror. Zombie!
      Here's 02102, Plague Zombie, Dark Heaven Legends sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
      It's the second time i paint this model, here's the link to 02043: Undead Rising, 02102: Plague Zombie & 02157: Undead Awakening I painted 10 years ago.
