I've been on a painting roll lately! Here is Reaper's charnel grub. I went with a secondary triad color scheme: orange, purple and bright green. I think it gives it a nice bright toxic sort of look, like a poisonous tree frog. My favourite part was painting the green slime seeping out of the pustules on the belly, and out of the mouth. He looks like he's having a ball just splashing around in his own slime and eating it. Ewww. I've also been obsessed lately with my little photography turntable, so I made an animated gif. Click here to see the charnel grub spinning around! 360 degrees of gross! Enjoy!
These are the minis I painted for Fealron for Secret Sophie. He said he was wanting some monsters that would live in a cavern or ice cavern. So, I imagined Ankheg (77230) as the mother and the channel grub (77226) as the larva. I painted the channel grub in blues and purples with yucky pink suckers. I used a little water effect on the slime trail it was sitting on. (Like a giant yucky slug!) I just painted the base for gaming like it was shiny ice. I used a gloss varnish because I wanted the grub to look slimy and icky! I wanted to use the same color scheme for the mother but I wanted her to look like she had a hard shell. I wanted it to look slightly iridescent like a big bug. I used shades of purple and blue and mixed in some bronze metallic. It doesn't show well in the pictures. I painted her base to match the grub's. The last guy is Kegg, Bugbear Hunter (77233). I wanted him to be usable in or out of a cavern. I gave him a badger fur pattern. I wanted him to appear to live in a colder climate so his loincloth is made from the pelt of a snow leopard. I tried my hand at "rusting" his shield and axe. I ended up really liking him and if I didn't have so many minis in queue, I would have to make a tribe of bugbears! I love the bugbears anyway! I hope these 3 cause a lot of trouble for some adventurers!
