Manntje, Manntje, Timpe Te
Samedi posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThis little guy has been in my stash box forever, I never could decide on a paint scheme. And then, a few weeks ago, it hit me: There's an old North German fairy tale about a fisherman who catches a flounder. The flounder begs the fisherman to release him, so he does. When he comes home, he tells his wife and she complains that he failed to ask the fish for a reward. So the fisherman returns to the sea and calls the flounder to ask for a little house as a reward, because his wife wants it: "Manntje, Manntje, Timpe Te, Buttje, Butte, in de See, mine Fruu, de Ilsebill, will nich so as ick wohl will!" (Little man, little, man, * I have no idea what timpe te means *, flounder, flounder, in the sea, my wife Sibyl doesn't want things the way I would like them") The wife, however is never satisfied for long and she sends the poor fisherman back to the flounder again and again to wish for grander and grander things. When finally his wife wants to be the same as god himself, the flounder has enough, and the fisherman and his wife go back to being poor. So here is the flounder, about to build the little house for the fisherman, or the farm, or the palace, or to make the fisherman's wife king, or even pope. Anyway, the flounder is not amused. This was a really quick paint job for me. I made the water with UV-Resin and sculpted some waves with water effects gel. I still have to get the hang of painting the foam on the crests of the waves, but I think it's a bit better than my first attempt at waves. Anyway, here's the flounder, enjoy!
I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours. I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors! Do I get bonus points for that? Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.
Deep One Priest and Servitor - 77520
Tolex Cat posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingDeep One Priest painted by me and the Warrior painted by my husband who's just getting into painting. So I had lost the mojo to paint for a while but watching this last KS got me inspired to get back to it. Also, the hubby is running a new D & D group so I've been asking him what he needs for sessions and just doing some speed painting on things. It's been a nice way to get back into it without overthinking it. That being said, this is the first one that I really spent some time on in a long time and I dig the way it turned out. It's kind of sappy but my husband is also coming to enjoy painting so he painted the warrior first and I matched the main color scheme when I had the time to work on the priest. It's been really fun to paint with him as he's learning the basics. The basic colors for both of them were the Brilliant Green triad. The belly is Highland moss over the darker green. I focused on glazing and trying to blend the light and shadow together so it wasn't as blotchy. I should have made sure to straighten out the priest a bit more so pardon the quarters to prop him up for better photos. I'll have to work on a nice base to help angle him a bit. Could be better but feels good to be painting again!
The Innsmouth Look: 77186, 77187, 77212, 77215
Rigel posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingCan't make Deep One hybrids without Deep Ones; that just stands to reason. Got these fishy Bones fellas before the Bones Deep Ones came out. Probably overdid the metallics, and will probably do so again. 77215, Eregris Darkfathom I painted up first; did not notice it's a cultist in a fish suit; thought the face was part of the mouth. I do like the flowing robes and the coral scabbard. 77187, the Tiik Champion, is a delight. Huge and hunched-over, with a Dunkleosteus profile, truly a terrifying beast from an elder era. 77186, the Tiik Warrior, I'm pretty pleased with. 77212, the Baron, I should probably revisit and put some shiny razzamatazz on his fins one of these days. There's one more fishy friend I need to post, but for reasons probably more aesthetic than biological, she is NSFW and will need to be linked.
Bog Trog Trawler, Warmachine Hordes fishman
Rigel posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingA fitting adversary for the Benthic Walker and my aquanauts, this burly fishy brute packs a massive steampunky harpoon cannon and a cape made of human leather. (How aquatic species do their leather-tanning, I don't know, but it seems to work for this guy.) He's also adorned with fishhooks, which must be a bold countercultural statement among fishmen. Like a necklace of bullets and syringes for a human, I guess. Big fella, he came with a Large base but could pass for a very burly Medium creature in my opinion. This brute is not some lungbreather hybrid from Innsmouth; this is 100% Deep One stuff. Oh yes, also the rotten hands and bones on the gruesome cape. Trophies of the Ones that Got Away, perhaps?
I had two of the Deep One Priest and Servitor pack and thought it would be fairly straightforward to do an arm swap on one of the pairs. Turns out I was right. The staff arm for the priest is a glued socket joint so I just pried it out of the socket. I then carefully cut the same arm from the servitor at the shoulder joint. I drilled the servitor arm and the socket of the priest and joined the two with a pin cut from a plastruct rod (probably unnecessary, but I like overkill). On the servitor, I used my dremel to rough out a socket for the key post on the priest arm and glued them together. I then did very minor greenstuff on the seams of both. I also did a minor reposition on the servitor that wasn't altered. Here are comparison shots between original priest and servitor with their altered counterparts.
