For my birthday, I received a mini I'd had my eye on for a while, Slimux and Mulch!

 

Slimux:-

He's a gardener, a demon gardener.

 

And Mulch:-

Is his loyal plough-snail.

 

Started on Mulch today:-

His shell was based with Hexed Lichen, then had drybrushes of 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Warlord Purple > Warlord Purple > 1:1 Warlord Purple/Squid Pink > Squid Pink, and then I painted Pure Black into the cracks and deep recesses.

Finally I glazed over the whole thing with some thinned Blue Ink.

 

As usual I used too much Glaze Medium, so I'm going to work on Slimux while it dries, if it dries.

Thanks!

 

I'm thinking a pale flesh colour at the moment.

While Mulch's shell slowly dries I've made a start on Slimuxs skin, so far it's a base of 1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Dead Flesh with a Flesh Wash.

Somehow I managed to miss painting the palm of of his left hand, so that's my next job once he dries.

Finished his skin with highlights of 1:1 Dead Flesh/Dwarf Flesh and 1:1:1 Dead Flesh/Dwarf Flesh/Light Flesh.

I also did his eyes, but yellow was not a particularly good colour choice for them, need to line the edges.

 

I'm leaving all his wounds and nobbly bobblies until I do Mulchs skin, which I've started but it's going to take a few coats.

Three coats of basecoat (1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh) done, another couple and it should be solid enough for the Flesh Wash stage.

I'm not sure why but when I first looked at the most recent pic.  I thought I saw the shell as a purple to black cosmos.  As always your stuff looks amazing.

Thanks! The satin varnish did a great job adding a nice sheen to it.

Finally got a decent basecoat layer down, so I could complete the skin (1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh > 1:3 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh > Thinned Flesh Wash).

 

Now to pick out all bumps and things on both Mulch ans Slimux.

There is something delightfully disturbing about the Nurgle miniatures. They do have a certain charm to them.

Your WONDERFUL technique is just the thing to bring out all the qualities of the Beasties. Have FUN with it all.

Thanks guys!

 

Yeah, I really like Nurgles demons too, they seem like the most fantastical of the four for some reason.

Somehow I missed painting Mulchs mouth.

The inside of mouth is 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Pure Black, the tongue is 1:1 Squid Pink/Old West Rose > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Squid Pink/Old West Rose, the lips are 1:1:1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh/Squid Pink/Old West Rose > Flesh Wash > 1:1:1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh/Squid Pink/Old West Rose > 1:2:1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh/Squid Pink/Old West Rose, and finally Olive Green eyes.

 

I then did Mulchs teeth (Ochre Yellow > Brown Wash > 2:1 Bonewhite/Ochre Yellow > Bonewhite with two brushtipfuls of the previous layer), this was also used on Slimuxs nails and horns.

Then it was Mulchs nails and tusks(?) (Bonewhite > Brown Wash > Bonewhite > 1:1 Bonewhite/Off-white), this was used on Slimuxs teeth and his chewing bone.

Finally finished their skin.

Their wounds were done in Warlord Purple > 1:1 Warlord Purple/Off-white, and their bumps were done with their flesh colours plus Ochre Yellow (this worked much better on Slimux), Mulch also had a big spot that I painted Light Green > 1:1:1 Light Green/Ochre Yellow/Off-white, but I could only find the one so it looks a little out of place.

They then both got a very thin glaze of Flesh Wash.

 

I also painted Slimuxs blanket seat, this was a base of  Blood Red shaded down with Scarlett Red and Scarlett Red with a brushtipful of Pure Black, then highlighted with 1:4 Red Orange/Blood Red and 1:2 Red Orange/Blood Red.

With 1:1 Bonewhite/Light Flesh maggots and Cork Brown stitches.

They are appropriately very gross. Well done so far!

      More Stuff I did on Summer Vacation.
       
      PingosHusband gave me a set of Citadel "Sisters of the Thorn", female wood elves riding what are supposed to be deer, I think (although they have solid hooves and their antlers attach weirdly). Anyhow, they look pretty cool. The set also could make up some hunky shirtless male riders in creepy antlered masks, and I ended up making one of those along with four of the females.
       
      And then there were parts left over.
       
      Sooo ...  I had enough to make one more full male torso and one female torso lacking hair (and three male torsos that need hair and right arms, but that's a project for another day ...).
       
      Well, what can you do with a torso?
       
      Obviously, make centaurs (horse or spider) out of them. I lugged out my bin o' Bones and found 77264: Female Centaur sculpted by Sandra Garrity (There's a male centaur too, but interestingly the female "horse" part is larger and more robust than the male.) and 77182: Arachnid Archer sculpted by Gene van Horne.
       
      I ruthlessly sliced off the human torso from the centaur and used a pin because I'm not sure how well epoxy adheres to Bones.

       
      I carved the waist of the spider body a little to fit the elf torso, but I didn't take pictures of that. This is the figure fitted in but not yet glued. There wasn't any hair for this torso, so her face is only a hollow mask glued to the neck at a tiny contact point at the back of the chin, fragile and just a little creepy.

       
      I mixed up some epoxy and drizzled little comma-shapes onto parchment paper, let them dry, and peeled them off. Then I mixed more epoxy and blobbed it into the back of the elf's skull and added dried epoxy commas until it looked more or less like hair.

       
      Here are the two of them done:

      Presenting Ensign Roxy "Hotshot" Malone, the colour scheme test Voidsman for my Starstriders set.
       
      I think she came out pretty well, and the group should look rather striking, when I eventually get the rest painted.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
