Thanks guys!

 

Got a little bit more done:-

Found a little bit more torso so this got painted up the same as his skin.

Then it was tentacle time (1:1 Dead Flesh/Olive Green > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Dead Flesh/Olive Green > 1:1:1 Dead Flesh/Olive Green/Bonewhite).

 

Starting to realize this one doesn't work on his fancy resin base as well as the others do, he really needs to be slightly buried in the dirt.

 I ended up sculpting a bunch more tentacles around him. A combination of that, plus some water/slime effect could help him look less like he's hovering over the fancy resin.

That's a really neat idea, thanks!

 

My greenstuffing skills are very basic, but I should be able to plug the gaps with a few tentacles.

I'll try and get the skullz painted today, get everything varnished and give it a go.

Had fun playing with my Greenstuff and he looks better connected to his base.

 

Letting it dry overnight now.

Made a little progress:-

Painted his new tentacles to match his old tentacles.

Painted his book.

The cover is Scarlett Red with Bronze detailing, the pages are Iraqi Sand shaded with a touch a Brown Wash, a Magic Blue bookmark and squiggles!

Thanks guys!

I know they're the most basic of mods, but I'm rather proud of the job I did making him extra tentaclely.

 

 

Little bit more progress:-

Started on his staff.

The staff itself is 1:1 Leather Brown/Cold Grey with a Brown Wash, and I've started on the fleshy worm part (It's Dwarf Flesh with Flesh Wash so far), but I don't get what the balls on the spines are supposed to be.

I'll have to give it some thought.

Progress:-

Finished off the fleshy tentacle with a highlight of Dwarf Flesh, the spines and teeth are Iraqi Sand with a Brown Wash and the mouth and orbs are 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Dwarf Flesh.

The final orb I did as an eyeball, I don't think that's how eyeballs work but I think it looks kinda neat.

 

Just gotta do the base, although I have made that a much harder job for myself.

As suspected I did have to repaint several tentacles that got in the way of base painting, but he's done:-

 

Just the cute, little necromancer left.

Then I going to have to buy some more Dreadmere minis.
