I painted this couatl for OneBoot for the Summer Exchange. The couatl comes with a 1" square base, but I upgraded it to a 2" round base to make it the appropriate size for Pathfinder/D&D. First time doing a jungle base. Someone on the forum mentioned getting plastic plants from Michael's to use their leaves to make plants, so that is what I did.
I have three odd creatures that need paint. Clockwise from left: The Darksword Frog Prince sculpted by Dave Summers, which will be a gift for my mother (as was the Frog Jester last year, and the (Not So) Killer Frog in 2006...you'll note a theme in my gift-giving) The Ral Partha Couatl (11-402) sculpted by Dennis Mize, which will be necessary in my Eberron campaign. And...a...worm...thing...The base was stamped "Marauder," along with some rather unidentifiable squiggles that are now completely gone, since I clipped away the integral base. I did some cursory research to no avail. I'm probably going to paint this up as everyone's favorite "I've never heard of it" burrowing monster, the thoqqua. But if anyone can tell me what it was supposed to be, I'd be interested to know. The worm is pretty well ready for paint. Clipped off the integral base, used a Happy Seppuku stamp to make some floor and squished him down into the putty. Ready to go. The Frog Prince: I plan on building a little scene eventually for the frog folk I paint for my mom, and the Prince will be on a finished floor. This will be built with Hirst. But he also needs to be magnetic, so I shaved down a Hirst tile to sit on top of a GF9 mag base without towering over other bricks. Of course, that integral base doesn't look quite right on that tile, so he went into the bench vice: A few minutes with the jeweler's saw and I had this: Unfortunately, I also had this: That mangled foot will need some GS, and the forefoot will get a pin to hold it in place. I'm not Dave Summers, but I think I'm up to this task. Now, the Couatl: Dropped him on another magnetic base and gave him some scenery: That's this stuff, all built up and pulled into waves. The integral base had something that might have been leaf litter and might have been fire, so I decided to go with something fire-like. Probably will be painted like a rainbow wind. Next, I gave the wings a bit of a bend and glued them in place: That's all for now. Let me know what y'all think, and if anyone knows what the worm thing is I'd love to know!
