Great (colorful) Worm 77006

9 posts in this topic

While waiting for water effects to dry (more boring than paint) I finished up a couple minis that have been on the desk for a while.  His one here is a favorite.  Got all rainbow inspired when painting up a great worm.  This was the first mini where I'd used the sand/gravel and glue mix to "sculpt" a base.  Had lots of rocks to stick into it as it dried.  After a dark primer and light drybrush, I liked the look of it so much I didn't want to paint over it for a few months.  Well I finally brought it back to the painting desk about a month ago and have been hitting the rocks with various leftover Browns and grays.  I was not entirely happy with he underside until I thought to drybrush a fleshy color (suntan flesh) and it really did it for me.  What do you think?

Nice transition of colours and the base looks really good too.

This figure has long been a favourite of mine and was the first mini I ever painted, so I'm always glad to see different takes on it.

That's awesome!  Gareth Hawkblade would look fabulous right in front of that maw! :D  (mostly because he looks terrified of everything!)

That gives me a wicked idea for the bones 3 Goremaw when it comes.  Find an appropriate bones character to sacrifice, cut it in half and have the legs sticking out of the 'maw.  I knew I should have ordered two (or three) of that one.  Hmm.  

 

Or what about a diorama with a saddled horse sans rider in front of the worm, maybe a fallen shield or empty gauntlet sitting in the ground?  You fill in the rest.  Hey, the battle is still raging, we just can't see it since we are outside the worm.

      Just finished up my Horned Hunter. Base coat is Army Painter Barbarian Flesh color primer. Reaper HD mixed with Citadel washes for the rest. The base is just Citadel texture paint with some dry brushing. 
       
      Comments and and critiques are always welcome.

      Don't know why I'm so nervous to put this out there.  Really it's just for fun and no big deal, but I'd like to enter myself into a goblin challenge starting tomorrow, May 24.  Time Tbd.  Khanjira is currently still in the box.  
       
      Tonight I will dry fit, clean, and attempt to fix warping.  Tomorrow afternoon I will begin the challenge.  
       
      Just to be sure: I have a couple packs of round size 10/0, 5/0, and 3/0.  Any of those would be allowed, correct?  They are within the 10 mm long, but not sure where to measure the 1 mm wide. At the ferrule, just the bristles at the ferrule end or the tip?
       
      okay, now to clean the paint area and I'd some colors.

      I have yet to assemble a complete figure from any of the Frostgrave sprues of plastic parts, so I thought I'd start slow with a head swap.  Enter Anval Theicedamned, Evil Warrior.  His head is just begging to be chopped off.
       

       
      I figured I'd swap one hooded head for another so I chose what appeared to be an armored hooded head from the cultists sprue and after chipping away at Anval's neck area, applied the super glue and commenced to hold it in place for several minutes.  Yes, there is a better way, and it involves drilling and pinning things.  Bah, details.  It eventually stuck and I decided on a paint scheme.
       
       Much metallics of various kinds.  Sadly I only have a few.  And a non traditional skin color.  This guy with no visible face lends itself well to an exotic or alien race.  Also, there's some nice detail on that axe.  I decided it must be some kind of magic weapon, perhaps of the air, storm, lightning element kind?  So I applied an unusual color and effect on the blade.  Sparking snow and yes, alien goo.  Also tried to give him a lightning tattoo in alien goo on the back.  
       
      Here is the finished piece.  So how convincing is the new head?

      I have been away from painting for what seems like ages, but the other day I went back to Duke Gerrard and completely repainted him.   I kept it pretty simple, and the face is as basic as they come (I could not even paint in his eyes)  but I think overall he is better.  The main armour was painted using the palest purple I could find, a craft paint called Iris, followed by a simple wash with army painter purple tone quickshade ink. The cloak I used Golden yellow followed by a wash of army Painter Strong Tone.
