Today, I'm not feeling working on my main ReaperCon project for the diorama so I figured to stay productive and still do something I'll go ahead and start a WIP thread for some tabletop to tabletop+ painted figures of mounts and/or animal companions for the characters in my D&D game.

 

First off I'm doing these three bones figures: animal companion brown bear (Jim), animal companion black panther (Alex), and Phantasmal blue panther mount (Bagheera). These are for the monk/ranger character in my D&D 'Broken Gods' game.

I will use some green stuff to even out and blend into the bones broccoli bases, the bigger panther will get a green stuff made saddle and harness. 

 

After I'm done with these three:

  • I will paint up a golden lion (the companion to the panther figure from bones 3 I believe)
  • Find a fox figure big enough to be a mount - will need to be about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long.
  • Acquire a nightmare figure for a mount or modify a horse or unicorn

Great, looking forward to seeing what you will come up with.

 

A few days ago I stumbled upon a video sequence of Vin Diesel and Laura Bailey playing DnD with a few others. Since then I cannot see this abbreviation without thinking that the game should be renamed Dungeons and Diesel.

A bit more work I did before dinner, all the green stuff work done.

So far, a fun little project with no stress. Just doing it for fun and not for any kind of contests here, means I can play around a bit more and figure it out as I go.

I've been doing a lot of tabletop stuff for the same reason.  No pressure, and it has been helping improve my brush control.  ^_^ 

 

It's nice and relaxing to me.

 

This is the 2nd saddle I've done, the first was a skeleton on a large spider about 2 years ago. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Right now I'm working with the liners to prime/basecoat the figures. Really, I want to spend probably another hour or two on the group and call them good. I'll be doing dry-brushing soon and a bit of freehand on the big panther.

Looking good so far!

 

As for the Nightmare, maybe use the Reaper Storm Steed?

I painted it as a Nightmare years ago.

You could leave the wings of and make a saddle.

Started a couple more mounts: a horse from one of Tre’s kickstarters which will be painted up as a nightmare. The lion I added a saddle to. 

 

The others will get more paint here soon. They are pretty close to being done.

      Having a hard time getting started back up on my keeper's sanctum diorama... I think I need to purposely take a break from it and work on some other stuff to get my creative juices flowing again. I have this idea in my head for a 75mm diorama featuring black sun miniatures' "Barbarian and the Lost Princess" (Conan) vs SC75's "Brock the Wanderer" 
       
      I'm thinking in this piece that it will have Conan carrying the princess through a dungeon type setting and then Brock standing there in front of a doorway. I'm going to really pull from artwork that I admire in regards to barbarians such as Frazetta and Patrick J. Jones.
       
      Right now I'm cleaning off the flash and mold lines, as soon as I do that, I'll wash everything and start to assemble as much as I can without causing issues during painting.

      For my Broken Gods D&D game, I've painted up all the figures for my group and am now getting around to painting up their mounts and animal companions. 
       
      First off we have Bagheera, the Panther based off artwork in the spoiler. Bagheera is the animal companion of the party's monk/ranger and normally it is a standard medium-sized panther that he can use to fight along side him, but the panther can grow into this large mount when needed.
       
      Next is the Golden Lion, the mount of the party's bard, based on the artwork below:
       
      Next is the Nightmare for the party's warlock, based on the artwork below:
       
      I painted up the standard medium sized panther to use when it is needed. The monk/ranger also gained a (perhaps) temporary follower in "Jim the Brown Bear" which I also decided to paint up for this adventure and future adventures as a companion or just standard bear.
       
      All of these are painted up tabletop to tabletop+ standards. I didn't want to put too much work into them as they are just meant to be on the tabletop and not to be put into any contests.
       

       
      Larger panther and the lion are the lioness and lion from Bones 3. The smaller panther and the brown bear are bones animal companions. The Nightmare is from one of Tre's kickstarters. It has a barbarian that goes on the saddles, which of course I omitted here and I'll either toss the barbarian in the BOGW or put him in the melt bin at ReaperCon now that he's not really needed and I covered the hole in the saddle where he would normally attach.
       
      There's one missing mount, a silver and black fox that I may also paint up for the 4th member of the group. She paints minis too, so I'm thinking I'll give her a wolf figure that looks very foxlike to have her do it herself especially since I have so many other projects I need to finish up on this month.
       
      Anyhow, C&C are welcomed and appreciated!
       
      EDIT!!
       
      Adding more pics of the figures in more close-up shots for each one.
