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.

      The Drowned Earth...
      ...is a tabletop miniatures game where brave heroes and villains risk the dangers of the wilds for glorious riches and ancient technology!
      Played on a 3ftx3ft table.  5 (or more) models a side.  Scenario based play. Beautifully cast, multi-part metal miniatures.  The game is set in the land of Ulaya, a tropical world of flooded cities, overgrown ruins and terrifying predators. 

      About the Development Process
       When I decided to create The Drowned Earth I had Four simple design briefs. I wanted the game to have: 
      A Parkour/ Freerunning movement system. Rules which told a narrative through a dramatic reaction mechanic. A streamlined, elegant system which was quick to learn and easy to remember. An unambiguous rules set suitable for competitive play.  Two years of development later, and I think I've ticked those boxes, and many more! The Drowned Earth is the kind of game you can tell stories about, without once talking about the mechanics or the dice you rolled. 

      Models leap off buildings, guns blazing, dodge bullets as they run through open ground, and swing from vines to take key objectives. It truly is a cinematic, narrative game full of knife edge choices and story moments!
       
      About the Miniatures
      I've watched and backed a lot of Kickstarters, and passionately want to avoid the pitfalls many of them experience with late delivery, quality issues and production bottle necks. As a first time producer I have done as much research as possible to mitigate risk. 
       
      To that end I have established full production pipeline and have actually gone through a complete production cycle with an outstanding metal caster, to deliver to you the best metal miniatures I can. Pictures speak a thousand words.

      I'm covering this in my Lost World Project also.
      However since this is basically a Terrain Piece/Diorama thingie, I decided to make a separate WIP as well.
      So those who are only interested in terrain and such will also see it.
       
      It all started when @knarthex his daughter Alsnia posted a pic of her Pet Snake.
      Then @Pezler the Polychromatic made up a background story See my WIP page 65
       
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=65
       
      @malefactushas always inspired me with his great terrain and he also encouraged me...
      And I have also read the great threads of @Chris Palmer who made fantastic jungle statues.
       
      So I knew I had to do this.
       
      I bought a Toy Anaconda and a Toy Python.
      The Anaconda will become Tanith.
      The Serpent Goddess will be repainted in albino colours like Alsnia's pet, but it will also be part stone.
      She is in stasis in a statue and now Alsnia the Priestess ( Bones Sarah the Seer) has been chanting and summoning until Tanith sheds her stone skin and breaks out of the statue.
       
      The Python will be a gold or bronze statuette on the back of the wall.
      I'm planning to put torches and sacrifices/gifts on the altar.
      There will be two pipes coming from the backwall and snakes will pour from those and will be crawling all over the altar.
       
      Here is what I've done so far.
       
       
       
       







      Then I needed to carve out the shape of the Python to embedd it into the back wall later.
      Too much gap will be filled with putty.
      There will also be much stuff likes vines and leaves all over it.
       
      So this may take a while.

      Another one finished for my Lost World Project.
       
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=71#comment-1531812
       
      This is an older sculpt from Grenadier.
      I used a little water effect on the base to make it appear more swamplike.
      And I clipped off some plastic aquarium plant pieces to paint as jungle plants.
      Added a tiny piece of driftwood from the garden centre.
       
      Hope you like it.
      Feel free to comment.
