Thank you!

 

Experimenting with Fluo paints and a Rolling Pin.

I'm quite happy with them,

Great color, very realistic for ants!  Now where did I leave that bag of fire ant pesticide... :poke:  I wondered if you had that rolling pin, I have a few of their others and have been pretty impressed with the results.

I recently bought that Aztec Rolling pin, liked it a lot so got me a Greek and a Egyptian one too. And the Plain one for easy flattening.

 

This is the first base I painted that was done with a pin.

The others are all resin bases, and I have loads of those too.

My Lost World is expanding...figured a Rolling Pin would pay itself back after a few bases.

 

The Fluo colours I used make the ants look better than I expected.

The Ants look TERRIFIC. I love the colors you chose. The rollers are producing some SPLENDID bases. OUTSTANDING WORK!

I now have a tremendous need to scratch though.

Can you kill a giant fire ant with fire? If so: AH! KILL THEM WITH FIRE!

 

The orange you've achieved looks very fiery, as you said. Everything about these critters is nice: the ants, the base with its molded stonework, and the skull, too - it adds some ambience... of death! Excellent work!

But what if they're fire ants?

Delightfully creepy! I love how bright they are against the muted neutral base (which turned out nicely as well). :)

 

Huzzah!

Thank you all for the comments and likes.

Happy you like the little critters.

 

I do need to improve my base building with the rolling pin.

All in all not bad for a first try.

      Introducing the newest demon lord in my miniatures collection...
       
      The Minotaur Demon Lord, aka Baphomet, aka "the Horned King", aka "the Prince of Beasts."




       
      This miniature was quite a bit bigger than the metal demon lord minis I've painted previously. A bit of a challenge, but I'm pleased with the result!
       
      If anyone is interested in the play-by-play of me painting this miniature, feel free to check out the work in progress thread on the forum.
       
      Cheers!

      Finally got the colors right on this one. Wasn't excited by the "thunder" or spell effect, though, it was a real pain to paint.

      This is called TANITH's AWAKENING.
      A sideproject from my Lost World Project.
       
      It was born due to @knarthex's daughter Alsnia, showing a pic of a cute python with flowers on it's head.
      Then @Pezler the Polychromatic made up a little story in my Lost World Project.
      I had already seen a great Serpent Goddess statue in a thread from @Chris Palmer and after some suggestions from @malefactus and @Chaoswolf things really got out of hand.
      More forumites commented and suggested stuff.
       
      Anyway here it is.
      The Ananconda and the Python are plastic toys.
      The little snakes are from the GW Bastiladon.
      The Sugarskulls are from Greenstuffworld and a present from @Erifnogard THX!
      @knarthex also donated lots of flock and moss.
       
      The little bird and the smaller pots are Bones.
      Alsnia is Bones Sarah the Seeress 77210
      The bigger pottery, treasures and vases are Resin pieces from Minimonsters and Ristul's Extraordinary Market.
       
      For the whole story and WIP's
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73979-taniths-awakening-by-xherman1964/

      Hope you guys like it.
      Building was made out of foam.
      I used some milliput and a Greenstuffworld Aztec Motif Rolling Pin.
       
       
      TANITH is the living statue of the serpent goddess, Alsnia performs the ritual to summon TANITH, and she breaks free from her stone form.

      I'm creating a world in my LOST WORLD PROJECT.
      When doing this I made a project within a project.
      WIP's here:
       
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73979-taniths-awakening-by-xherman1964/
       
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/
       
      Since she would not be visible enough in the diorama alone, I made a separate thread for her.
       
      This is ALSNIA @knarthex's daughter.
      It all started out when the real Alsnia showed a pic of a albino snake with flowers on it's head.
      Things rapidly spun out of control and the project was born and merged with my own project.
       
      For the Show Off of TANITH'S AWAKENING look at this:
       
       
       
      Here is Alsnia Solo.
      I used Bones Sarah the Seeress 77210 for this.
