There is no Mecha that can compare to this epicness.

 

A great conversion and beautifully painted. I love it!

You really took this model to the  next level with all those additions!

Love the broken glass in the lantern and the Succubus figurehead.

 

Painted driftwood is awesome!

I see what you mean about how difficult this is to photograph.  It's packed with fascinating details an warrants long, careful looking.

I do have a problem with heavily weathered pieces, but, even taking my prejudice into account, that is a FINE piece of brushwork on a BRILLIANTLY converted creation. VERY WELL DONE indeed!

Wowzers!  I love all the look of decay and verdigris and worn-off paint and so forth.  It does look like some strange amalgam of whatever was dredged up from a shipwreck, come to wreak havoc upon the living landlubbers.  That ought to make for one epic boss fight, for sure.  :D

Very cool! Love the weathering, paint chipping, verdigris. It's all awesome. My only gripe is the base seems too small for the mini. As you said, it is very top-heavy. I feel a slightly larger base would help balance it out (visually, if not physically).

  Thank you, Knochensack!   To compare it favorably to the greater world of all mecha is sure appreciated!

Thank you, Glitterwolf!  The succubus was a gamble, so glad to hear you think it turned out well.

Thank you for thinking it's contest worthy, Inarah!   Though I have to ask, what large figure contest?

Thank you, malefactus!  The fact you have to overcome a prejudice makes your comments all the more appreciated!

Thank you, Jordan!   For me all the weathering was half the fun!

Thank you, seej!   As I think about it and look at the pictures, I think you are right; a larger base would improve the look of the figure a lot.  In my defense; I'm a gamer primarily, so when I base, I always think in terms of the ease with which a figure can be placed within tight terrain, and have multiple figures put up against it for close combat.  So smaller is usually better. ::):

Thank you very much for the link, Inarah!   I just might do that. ::):   Though looking at the current submission, I think I would need to take better photos against a better background...

      Idk if this is a KS model or one I randomly bought to fill out our need for giant monsters that are not cardboard cutouts. Anyway, he's done. He was going to maybe go in a desert diorama but I decided against (he didn't end up fitting). I might go back over his claw bits again tho, they seem a lot darker in the pic than they do IRL but theyr'e still just not quite right. Anyway, he's based on a couple of RL pics, mostly going for a shiny red carapace kind of idea. He's not in my WIP thread, so just a quick note, I undercoated him mournfang brown (a red brown GW colour) and then built up to the red with reaper's bloodstain red and later clotted red (my absolutely fave triad *ever*)

      Another batch of deadly forest encounters, the kind you'd find protecting Castle Stoneskull!

      All miniatures are from the Castle Stoneskull set from Bones III.

      Death Lilies or something like that!

      I'm just really proud of this, my first work with an airbrush ever. Maybe it's not the best skill & craft work out there for finishing a figure, but I think I win some points for originality.
       
      What I learned...
      Sometimes, inspiration comes when you think your finished (my son said "I thought you were going for a nebula") Sometimes, your wife says "It needs something iridescent" when you think you're done and she's right. Sparkling Amethyst on the spines Airbrushing means mixing and getting your consistency exactly right - I got lucky on my first try Airbrushing base colors is insanely fast, uses almost no paint and produces something much more even than I could dry-brushing Dry brushing is great for aging/leathering a piece - airbrushing is all about consistency of coverage. Trying to add red-shifted & blue-shifted stars to the star field looked like birthday cake sprinkles. Nature always has better color schemes than I can come up with on my own. I still need to figure out how to layer/thin/build up my colors.  
       
      After initial airbrushing with Violet Shadow and Clear Magenta and maybe a mix with aged bonne for the belly.

       
       
      First pass at layering for the spikes. I've got some learning to do.

       
      Another angle at the "ready for detailing" stage.

       
      My son said "nebula" and I broke out the clear blue and thinned it, but probably not enough.

       
      Here's the "finished" product. I detailed so many stars in the blue areas. Then my wife said "iridescent" and I added Sparkling Amethyst to the spines. It's a great touch and highlights the raised part of the body instead of leaving it the same as the rest.

       
      For scale against another recent work, my lizardman army.

      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.
       

       
      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...
       

       
      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.
       

       
      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!
       

       
      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
       
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
       
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)

      There is a page where I can see the detailed images and the names of each miniatures in Bones 4.
      https://www.reapermini.com/Bones4
       
      Is there such a page for Bones 3? I got a lot of Bones 3 kickstarter minis but cannot figure out the name of miniatures in, say, Graveyard Expansion or Stoneskull Expansion.
