  1. From the depths of SPACE, they came! A menace unlike any the Solar System had yet seen! Their weapons--inexorable! Their strange mental powers--UNCANNY! Bombshell's Counterblast line has a faction called the Edofleini. Can't prove anything, but I feel strongly that the designer had read David Wiesner's "June 29, 1999" at a formative age. The Edo are giant-brained cephalopods with zap guns and psionic powers, and if that doesn't tickle your fancy, perhaps a Space Squid has used an Emotive Transductor to suck all the JOY and WONDER from your heart? (They can do that, you know!) I couldn't resist, anyway. Tried to give them a color scheme inspired by this coconut octopus. Here's the four-eyed leader of the bunch, in its magnificent robe of office. The gold-armored subordinate with Neural Halberd: A vicious enforcer, tentacles flailing: A four-eyed underling: And a runtish Spawnling: And here's a group shot! Keep watching the skies! Guard your brains! ARE YOUR THOUGHTS YOUR OWN, CITIZEN? Ever so many more pictures below if you click:
  2. Wish I'd taken more in-progress pics here, but when the muse strikes... Anyway, I got my hands on some figures from Bombshell's Counterblast, specifically the Edofleini faction. Could be described as BRAIN SQUIDS FROM SPAAAAAAACE!! (I assume you read that with the reverb turned up.) Decided to use the color scheme from this lovely shot of a coconut octopus: These were the paints used for the bodies; AP Toxic Mist plus some turquoisish Reaper sample paint was used for the suckers, and AP Greedy Gold for the jewelry and weaponry. Also used AP Kraken Skin for the leader's mini-cape. Seemed appropriate. Blue-black tentacles, eventually shading up to the rusty Astorath Red. A touch of color for the accessories and suckers: Then a great amount of drybrushing in shades of orange and yellow. I wanted the siphons to be the brightest points. I feel like they are close to done--should I add another coat of red wash, or use something darker?

    The Vulgar Cephalopod

    This ill-mannered octopus is a model I found on Thingiverse and printed on my el-cheapo Ender 3 FDM 3d printer. It's printed in PLA at 0.08mm layer height; from memory it took about three hours. Next to it is Sergeant Measureby, for scale. Each of the divisions on his spear is 5mm. He's a very old Essex mediaeval wargaming figure from the mid '80s.

    77291: Kraken

    I painted this around 9 months to a year ago and am just now getting up the courage to start posting some of my minis. This one I'm pretty proud of. My photography skills on the other hand could use some work.

    Safari Ltd Giant Octopus *edited

    Done in January for table top use. Safari Ltd. octopus from sea life "Toob". I purchased it separately for $1.70. Fast paint job, not sure it really counts as a paint job even.... The base figure was already red so I used washes of red, and purple inks to darken the color and add splotches. Based with "kenetic" sand as an experiment. CC always welcome. **Edited** to add scale photo.... it is a Giant Octopus so by D&D standards it's a large monster on a 2 inch base.

    Captain Octopus and Friends

    From here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64334-captain-octopus-and-friends/ Now my 5y/o can join in our games, and the disruption is minimized.

    Seablade the Octopus

    Octopus toy chopped apart & hot glued to some metal washers. 2" washer for the body and 1" washers for the tentacles. Mostly just a blue food colouring & floor finish wash over the original green plastic. Pink paint for the tentacle suckers and some off blue lightened with white for the water and a permanent marker to dot the eyes.

    Seablade the Octopus

    Recently saw some octopi minis done up with each tentacle separate from the body and wanted to have a few. And as luck would have it, I've scored a few toy octopi on the cheap of recent. Here's the work so far on this one. Chop... chop... Blue food colouring with acrylic floor finish

    PP - Swamp Horror - Minion

    I don't have many minions or a use for this at the moment, but I couldn't resist any longer, such a cool model. Trying to figure out the best way to base it was the most difficult part. Hope you enjoy!
  12. Hello there! Trying my hand at a WIP thread again, I know my last couple of them died a terrible death, but I'm hoping that by concentrating on a single figure, I won't stress out over my painting not being good enough and end up with a pile of half-done stuff again. If this works, then whenever I start on a figure I think deserves a bit more effort and/or is really cool looking, I'll memorialise the project in a thread. Our first test subject is this guy, The Biomancer - Yep, he's a freaky pile of little details. At this stage I'd primed and brown washed him to better see what was what. I had a little bit of time left at the end of today's painting session, so I made a start on the basecoat - I'm liking the blue tentacles, but I think the purple on his pet octopus is a bit too dark, might try something pinker.
