Going to the same fair tomorrow so thought I'd better finish this. Cost £1.50 last year and I may buy another. I tried to make it mossy and overgrown as if it were in the woods or hills around here (if it were it would be either Robin Hood's Well with a legend that Friar Tuck brewed his beer with the water ...or named after some Anglo-Saxon saint who prayed for water... I only had Atlantic Blue water effect hence calling it a magic well. I did add some splash gel with AK Ice Sparkles to try and give it a bit of movement...
Bones V: The Thing in the Well/Well of Doom
strawhat posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingA few weeks ago I made a bit of a cheeky post where "Lassie" tried to get some help for poor Timmy (who had, quite unsurprisingly, fallen down a well). Well, the Thing in the Well wasn't quite finished at the time. That has since been rectified. I present to you: The Thing in the Well/The Well of Doom! The well was painted up with my favorite craft paint combo: Delta Ceramcoat Chocolate Cherry, Burnt Sienna, and Terra Cotta. Truly great stuff! And it's not grey! I honestly think I'm going to use that trio for most of my stone scenery. I left the fluid unattached and painted the inside of the well with a couple shades of dark blue (I no longer remember which ones). But I'm not sure whether or not I'll ever take the brain out of the well, so it was just a whim and not anything really planned. The first part of the beastie I tackled was the well "water." I knew I wasn't going to paint it up like blue water. I was hoping to create a rather unnatural vibe. I thought about green, but ended up using the NMM Gold triad. I don't know if I got the shading right, as I was trying to make the fluid darker where it would be thicker/deeper and paler near the edges and peaks. The brain was next. I used the Vampiric Skin triad for the grey matter. The veins/arteries along the surface were originally going to be red...and then I remembered that squid blood isn't red. Squid blood is blue. So out went the red (not for the only time this project). I used Nightmare Black to serve as a base for Ritterlich Blue and Brilliant Blue topped off the highlights. You can't see the "cerebellum," but I used Imperial Purple, Amethyst Purple, and Spectral White to paint it up. I was on a "cool" colors kick. And then the tentacles. Ugh. Not "ick," "ugh." My original, scatter-brained plan was to try to emulate the humboldt squid. Those rather nasty pieces of work pulse red when they're agitated. So I painted the backs of all the tentacles red. Then I put the fluid in the well and started dry-fitting the tentacles. It didn't work. None of it. Not the shade of red and not the fit of the tentacles. I ended up pinning four of the tentacles to the fluid base. There just didn't seem to be enough "plug" on them to properly sit in the base and I didn't want to drown the thing in glue. One of those pins is rather questionable, though, but it's all holding for now. The mold lines are another issue. I should have checked more carefully before I started, but these aren't for much beyond my own grins and giggles. I can forgive a few mold lines. After getting the tentacles nice and attached, I pondered for a bit and ended up choosing the Twilight Colors triad (another favorite) for the backs. I chose the Rosy Flesh triad for the underside of the tentacles, and the Bone Colors Triad for the hooks on the suckers. And that's about it. Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks to Pochi's awesome WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68003-cottage-wip/ (Check it out, it's so adorable! ) With out it I never would have known about this amazing company. I've been looking for affordable terrain pieces like these for awhile. For the quality of these, the price really can't be beat. Seriously, not one of the pieces I ordered has a mold line or flashing of any kind. Top notch. In coming wall of text. First up is the cottage. I got so involved painting the stone, I forgot to take pics of each step. Oops. A couple things I would do differently next time. Prime in black. Grey is my go to primer color but with the deep cuts of the stone, I would have saved a bunch of time just priming black because it ended up black after trying to get into all of the nooks and crannies anyway. And I normally brush prime everything but again with the amount of detail this thing has it was difficult to get into all of the spaces and it kept bubbling up on me so I'll spray prime next time. Colors used. Shadow and wash Scale 75 Necro Grey Base- Scale 75 Mistatonic Grey, Scale 75 Tindalos Red, Reaper Golden Brown, Reaper Terran Khaki. Highlights for Terran khaki- Pure white/ Terran khaki. For Golden Brown- Terran Khaki/Golden Brown. For Mistatonic Grey- Pure White/ Mistatonic Grey. For Tindalos Red- Terran Khaki/ Tindalos Red. Final all over Highlights- Added more Pure White to the Grey. To do the stone- I did an all over wash of the Necro Grey ( this is where the black primer would have come in handy) I then went over the entire thing with thinned Mistatonic Grey. Then, I just started randomly picking out stones with the different colors going back and forth between them until I was happy. I didn't worry too much about full coverage for these. Another very very thin all over wash of the Necro Grey. I then went back over each stone with their original base color by loading the brush then tapping the paint onto the stone with the side of my brush. Highlights for each stone were done the same way, making sure to lightly hit the highest points of the rocks. The final highlight of the pure white and grey mixture over all stones to tie them together. Comments and Advice always welcome! Thanks for looking :-)

77136 Well of Chaos 77137 Sarcophagus
tiniest rhombus posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingSome dungeon decor. Dungeon decor is fun, relaxing, no stress painting. I lurve it. 1st attempt at marble (this year), 1st gem (last year) 1st verdigras (this year). I don't think you can see it in the pictures but the pillow and inside of the sarcophagus are done with some pearl white mixed it. Looks good in hand.
My summer exchange project.
Kangaroorex posted a topic in Show Off: Paintingthis was one of my summer exchange miniatures this year. Even though some of the pictures came out slightly blurrier than I would have liked the overall effect is one i really liked. The drider is metal, the queen and the well are bones. The base is marble. Part I'm most proud of: getting the drider into a submissive bow. I don't know that I could have done it with the bones material. Oh and the piece above the queens head is a bit of Sumatran Amber. Enjoy the view. Comments and critiques always welcome!
