Great (colorful) Worm 77006

Recommended Posts

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.

      Hi everyone.
      Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks.
      Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day.
      Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time.
       
      This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter.
      I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together.  It is popular in many heraldic devices.
       
      I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following:
      The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front.
      Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet.
       
      What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim.  The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct.  Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM.  I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece.  I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better.  But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM:  Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line?  I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic...
      Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand.
       
      Finally, one additional comment.
      I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version.
      I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good.
       
      So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399.
       
      Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above.
      Thank you.
