So these are a couple of "mantis warriors" which I'm painting up as thri-kreen, the insectoid race from the Dark Sun and Spelljammer D&D settings. They are Reaper's 03552: Klichik, Mantis Warrior (the taller one), sculpted by John Winter, and 03142: Zizzix, Mantis Warrior (the squatter one), sculpted by Michael Brower.
Here they are for scale (and unassembled) with Reaper's 03155: Vandora Waverunner, Pirate, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
Straight out of the package they have a very flat silhouette.
Here they are assembled, primed, and washed with thinned-down Burnt Umber. I gently bent some of their limbs forward to ease the flatness a tad.
One source said all thri-kreen were golden brown; another said they were earthy shades of red, yellow, and sometimes green. I decided to paint the taller one red and the shorter one yellow.
I mixed some dull, opaque colors using Iron Oxide Red and Yellow, each mixed with a greying-down blend of browns and white, and brushed them on thinly.
As god is my witness, this thing is not so pink in real life.
I painted this same yellow on both of the creatures' bases.
Then I washed over them with some thinned-down Burnt Umber.
To be continued!
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
@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.
I painted an OOP GW metal Stegadon for my Lost World Project and added Foundry Aztec Crew.
First some pics against neutral background
And then some against my Jungle Photo Board.
Hello! I've recently started working on a diorama, and a friend of mine urged me to post here. The only thing that is missing from the pictures below is the kelp that will be behind the kraken (on the little pads on the back side of the base). It is some floppy aquarium kelp that I"m currently trying to figure out how to get it to stand up straight. Tips, tricks, C&C are all welcomed.
Here is the pre-primed coral wall in varying states of sand coverage. The coral is planned to be very brightly colored.
You can see the kelp pads in the pic above.
Base with Kraken for staging verification:
Here is the almost finished diver, who goes in the slot in front of the Kraken. This drab, dirty human looking down at his feet while the kraken looms above is one of my favorite parts, tbh.
