Mantic library mini crate

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone!  For the two hour investment I thought it came out rather well.  looking at it, I probably need to spend a little more time drilling and adding pins to the bottom of each of the bookcases so that they will stack neatly and not fall over.  I also may go back and dress up the desks with some metallic.

Magnificent stuff! I think I took more than twice as long for an outcome less than half that good. Lovely colors, and yes to some metal accents on the desks and ladder!

thanks for the compliment!  As you can see, our librarian will bend over backwards to help even if you want something from the very top shelf... or the ceiling, in this case!

Nah he has just been carrying Paizo Core handbooks all day & has yet to relax himself back into normal position.

 

Excellent work on all of these. I finally got to see this or least retail boxes while at LVO. They look interesting but with the 3D printer & access to files & such I haven't had the need for them. Love the bookcases thou. The books look a hell of lot easier to paint up then the Fat Dragon bookcases (books are set deeper then the shelves....ughhh).

The books on these shelves are really well positioned.  Far enough in to set the sides and the back of the bookcase is true shadow, making painting easy, and they close enough to the edge that the cover colors aren't shrouded by the shelf overhang.

 

The only thing I would have liked for realism is a few more horizontal stacks.

      Just a random mini this time, the Stone Giant from the first expansion of the second Bones kickstarter from 2013.
       
       
      Stone Giants are the smallest of the giants, but still much larger than Conan. And have mothers milk that also can be used as spackle.

      Wyrmgear the Clockwork Dragon was a part of the very first Bones kickstarter back in 2012. It has been standing around unpainted and semi-assembled on my Dragon shelf (the top one with extra space for all the wings and such) several years. Some time ago, I pulled it off the shelf and started rusting it up.
      And it did not look good. So I put it back on the shelf.
      And took it down again after some time, did some more rusting. And still it did not look any good.
      And some of this was down to the pristine, straight and flat wings. The wings are made in a much harder / more rigid plastic than the rest of the Bones. They might be polystyrene, but could  just as well be the same Bonesium PVC with less plasticiser. Whatever the case is, the wings are really hard and totally non-flexible.
      So I cut them up with scissors and took those wings outside behind the garage and burned them with fire!
      My trusty lighter delivered flaming retribution to those wings, letting me bend and scrunch them a bit.
      So, with the stiff and pristine wings dealt with, it was time for some more paint.
      None of the earlier paint jobs were any good, in the end I dumped a bunch of Citadel Nihilakh Oxide all over it, drybrushed a bunch of different bronzes, golds and greenish steel. The wing "cloth" is based on Citadel Ionrach Skin, Reaper Vampiric Shadow and a whole buch of other paints, shades and inks.

      WizKids make both Nolur's Marvelous and Pathfinder Deep Cuts miniatures, both similar in style, scale and the primer. These, however, were clear transparent with just their integral bases primed light grey.

       
      I started by painting them all over with Army painter Anti-Shine Matte varnish. Then I gave them a wash of Citadel Casandora Yellow shade.
      When dry I then drybrushed carefully, using only "twelve to six"-strokes (think of a clock, the strokes going straight downward) with a pinkish red, a dark reddish brown and black.
      As these paints were both thin and carefully applied, the effect is much like a tasty gummy bear.
      Some dark blue in the eye cavities, followed by Army Painter Crystal Blue and Reaper Copper Verdigris on the eyeballs to make that demonic glow.
      The collars were painted with scale color Black Metal, followed by Army Painter Alien Purple and Scalecolor Deep Blue, topped with some more Black Metal.
      Inside the open mouth I painted some Citadel Yriel Yellow and Reaper Pure White.
       

      Hell Hounds are really big dogs!
      I did the bases with black flock directly beneath the hounds, with a crescent of my normal green flockmix to the front. I dabbed some yellow and orange paint along the edges to hint at burning grass. The bases themselves are 3D-printed 30mm x 45mm lipped ovals.

      This miniature is from a Midlam Miniatures kickstarter.  The lack of highlighting and shading is intentional since I was going for the single-color arcade look.  I had to put some putty over the sculpted eye holes to get a nice flat surface for the cartoony eyes.  Overall I'm quite happy with Inky!
       
      This is for the video game theme portion of the RP Challenge.

      These are four objective markers form Mantic's Kings of War: Vanguard Kickstarter.  The models are ok.  On a couple of the pieces, you can see the 3d print lines from the master model.  They will work fine for simple terrain pieces.  Overall I am happy with how they turned out.
