  1. This was a challenge and a half! I fell in love with the sculpt, and tried my best to do it justice. The cartoonishly large warhammer is just awesome. Getting my phones crappy camera to take anything worth sharing was also quite the challenge. As always C&C are more than welcome!
  2. This was a fun one! I removed his sword and replaced it with Acreraks staff. I used a zombie/skeleton head, and a staff from a Reaper weapon sprue, with a little greenstuff. The base is stone. I used a 1/4” die grinder to drill out enough material to install a couple 7/16” nuts, which were epoxied in place. I dremeled the shape of the rock into the maple, drilled and glued in some magnets, bam! Removable, super cool magnetic base! I struggled a lot on the lightning. Way more than I’d care to remember... I went a little heavy on the OSL, and wish I could take some of that back. All in all I’m quite happy with Acererak! C&C are always welcome.
  3. Crazy good! I really like the dark red accented by the white, really makes it pop.
  4. Hey everyone, I’ve been away for a little while, but life has gotten back into a rhythm that allows me some brush time. Finally! These were simply fantastic models. I throughly enjoyed painting these giants. It was a busy weekend for me, one Friday, another Saturday, and the last one Sunday. C&C are always welcome, and I hope you like them. My camera skills are as craptastic as usual... Oh! Banana-4-Scale! It’s a 28mm 3d printed on a 1” square base. It’s nearly as absurd and yet awesome as it sounds!
  5. This is the third or fourth piece from the Kickstarter I’ve painted. I really loved this sculpt, soooo much detail! I only wish it were bigger! looking at the pictures, I may have to retouch some of the protruding bones as they need some shadowing. All in all I’m quite happy how it turned out. The pillars I used in the base are not included in the Kickstarter (for those who were getting a raise in blood pressure) They were gifted to me from a friend experimenting with his 3D printer. As always C&C are more than welcome. I hope you like it
  6. What a terrific idea! Wonderfully done to boot. (I am so going to steal this idea) Thanks for the inspiration Thoramel!
  7. I tried brown fur originally but it turned out brighter than I wanted. I haven’t perfected a recipe for dark brown fur yet. the tail though; that’s a terrific idea! I was was tempted to do some drool, but the way the mouth was shaped, and how open it is, it would have been above my skill level to do it any justice.
  8. It’s creepy in all the right ways! Well done.
  9. Shub-Niggurath is simply what nightmares have nightmares about! Insanly detailed sculpt, and a total blast to paint. As always C&C are mores than welcome, and I hope that you like it.
  10. I asked my youngest daughter what colours this fearsome Rock Troll should be. “Ummmmm wike dis” as she pointed at her Easter Oreo cookie. Purple and black it is! He now stands guarding the cookie jar, although I don’t think he’s doing a very good job... C&C are always welcome

    Mudgullet

    “Steal” away! make sure to post it when you’re done too. Unless it’s better than mine...
  12. Here is my take on the mighty mudgullet! This was insanely fun to paint, I hope I did it justice. I tried to give it a dirty swampy feel. As always C&C are more than welcome, I hope you like it.
  13. It’s not snowing here, it’s just too cold for snow. Keeping warm is today’s objective!
  14. Update: my friend had the encounter tonight/this morning with sharkosaurus :) It managed to kill off a 9th level Ranger and a 9th level fighter/sorcerer before the remaining party could finish it off. Fairly successful I’d say. No one expects death from below solid ground. I’ve been told that the players weren’t laughing too long once it hit the board! I forgot to include the pic below in my original post. This was Thursday night (1-31-19) when we called the “kit” bashing done. Two toys, one dremel, a pile of hot glue, and a little bit of green stuff. I’m bad for wip pics, usually I don’t have any.
  15. SHARKOSAURUS!!!! A friend end of mine discovered a comic book / graphic novel called Sharkosaurus. While I haven’t read any of them, the idea is just incredible! He also happens to be running a ToA 5e game. So say hello to the king of feathers for his game. Given my timeline to disassemble, merge, reassemble, AND paint of 48 hours I’m pretty happy how this fella came out! Being a child’s toy, it also “roars” and has flashing lights. I had to include those! Pressing down on the dorsal (spelling??) fin, the maw of this monster lights up. I tried to hide the speaker vent(?) by making it look like a wound. My inspiration for colour choice. This was a pile of fun doing! Especially given the timeline. I’m looking forward to hearing the players reactions when it hits the table! C&C are always welcome.
  16. It’s looking like a good weekend to paint. As for today, I think it’s stopped snowing. Now if the wind would stop changing directions... (and yes it’s Fahrenheit)
  17. Great job! Keep ‘em coming!

    Umber Hulk

    Thank you. There was a guy on you tube that used glue on eyelashes(?) I can’t say that I have an abundance of those kicking around, but it inspired me enough to work with what I have.
  19. Here is my take on a classic baddy. I was not overly fond of the creature coming out of the package. The lower half of the mandible was lower than the Umber Hulks feet. A bit of hot and cold water fixed that easily enough. One of my daughters ‘donated’ some stuffy fur for the finishing touches. I wish I could have done something differently for the eyes, but overall I am quite pleased. I hope you like it, and as always C&C are welcome!
  20. Here is my take on the Red Dragon. This ended up being quite a bit more challenging than I first anticipated. Good practice for February. I can’t wait to get started! As always C&C are more than welcome!

    Xanathar

    Here’s my take on this terrific model. Beholders have always been one of my favourite baddies to paint. As always C&C are welcome and appreciated!
