Good Friday everyone,
With the forthcoming release of the Bones version of Viridius the Great Dragon on December 17, it is a pleasure for me to unveil today my work on a pewter version of this winged giant. Here it is, 10021 Viridius protector of the Woodspike forest sculpted by talented Jason Wiebe. As you can see, there was enough space behind its frilled head to add horns. So, I made a set of giant goat-like horns and a set of stag antlers. The horns and antlers have a metal armature “finishing nail” and they are held in place by magnets that I glued in holes I drilled in the dragon skull. Please, see my Viridius WIP for more details.
It was a long-term project, I started working on it in June last summer. I hope you will like it and that my work will be a source of inspiration for some of you. I used Army Painter Goblin Green primer, Games Workshop inks, Reaper MSP acrylic paint and traditional brushes, no airbrush. I used real rock on the base and natural roots for the trees. The synthetic grass is mainly from Woodland Scenics.
Good day everyone, here is a 77202, Warg I painted recently for an unexpected encounter in my D&D campaign. The adventurers managed to avoid the fight by sacrificing one of their horse to the hunting ogress and the two worg they were ambush by. This model was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I painted it with acrylics and mounted it on a 25 x 50mm base. I forgot to remove a huge mold line on the direwolf face, so I decided to paint it as if it was a scar. I also cut off a chunk of its right ear, I think it gives it a nasty look.
About this project
Since we were young, we were told a tale of "The 3 Little Pigs" living in their houses but one day they were attacked by the "Big Bad Wolf". The "Big Bad Wolf" blew away house by house until he ran out of breath at the mighty brick house. He then decided to climb the roof and jumped down the chimney, not knowing there was a boiling pot ready for him. He screamed and fled away. What happened to him after that? He might have been stalking the "Red Riding Hood", hiding in her grandmother's bed waiting to eat her for dinner. Yeah, eventually he died trying, but have you ever had doubt that both of the "Big Bad Wolf" could have been the same one? Ever After was conceived based on the premise that "Faerie Tales were told without names. So anyone might be anyone." The little lost "Red Riding Hood" could be the same girl who got lost in "Wonderland" or maybe Dorothy and Snow White might be the same person since they both were stalked by the "Wicked Queen". Both stories might have been told by different people, at different times. Stories change. Storytellers can add anything to the stories they tell. However, based on this theory, all fairy tales might be connected in some way we can't imagine.
Once upon a time, there was a land of legends and tales. Peace kept the land warm. Every day went by smoothly. Until one day, without any clues, the Red Queen started the war and dyed her land with blood of townsfolk. Her rage was unprecedented. Defiance meant death. Those who suffered could only cry for mercy that was denied. In despair, the White Queen came forth to confront the Red Queen. However, it did not alleviate the war. In fact, it caused more tear than anyone could ever imagine.
From the deepest sorrow of her heart, the White Queen decided to do the most forbidden action. She decided to open the Pandora's Box. The box contained the power that could fulfill all desires. In the blink of an eye, the Red Queen's Army was wiped out of existence. Peace was restored to the land.
However, what lingered under the apparent tranquility was the shadow that gradually tainted people's hearts. Once the power of Pandora's Box was unleashed, the deepest desire of the White Queen also came true. She desired that everyone wishes should come true. Therefore, the shadow sought the people's deepest darkest desire. Those who could not resist the temptation fell into the pit of darkness and became evil.
Only a few of those who could resist the temptation of the box gathered up and formed a resistance, the Dawnguard. Hiding in the shadow, they struggled to live and survive in the land tainted to the core. They still stand even in the darkest hours. They still wish that someday they could bring the peace back to their beloved homeland. They still fight although almost all of them know in their hearts that this war is hopeless. The fate is in their hands. Will they succeed or will they fail? Will the world be tainted into the damnation or will they be able to live happily Ever After...?
* Video show 4 units formed into one 2x2 case
Show, Go, and Grow with the X-Case 2.0
The X-Case is the only modular, configurable, and transportable display case on the market. Last year we introduced the clear X-Case and this year we take that even further with the X-Case 2.0 an ultra-durable, more clear version ensuring long life and even better displays at home or on the go.
*Video shows a total of 8 units in various configurations
These XCases can take quite a bit of abuse, even to the most suspect parts of the unit. Rest assured, these units are nothing close to fragile. Additionally, our first run looked good in their clear appearance, but these look great, with a much glassier look being made out of a similar grade of material to the doors of the X-Case which has always been very clear.
Fully compatible with every prior version of the X-Case the X-Case 2.0 will extend the life of your storage while protecting the life of your miniatures or other small collectible investment of time and/or money.
With optional inserts such as Metal Bases, (for magnetized minis), and magnetic bases, (for use with Flex Iron on non magnetized minis) your minis can stay in place during travel. New to this campaign we also have half and full length adjustable shelf and compatible tray(s) inserts to maximize the utility and display of the XCase.
*Video shows several prototype inserts in case at one time, dimensions not yet final.
