  1. This one was painted last year, shortly after painting part of my Dwarven Forge Caverns Game Tiles with a lava caverns paint scheme. I have started organizing my pictures and decided to post here in Show Off. I painted the Hydra using the same Pokorny Paint colors as I used for the lava caverns scheme on the Caverns tiles such as seen in the next pictures. And now for some pictures of the hydra by itself from different angles:
  2. Another bigger mini from me. I'm still getting used to painting miniatures this size. I didn't really go for anything too wild here though. A pretty traditional color scheme, I think. Still trying to nail something I'd call tabletop quality, though I think this fits the bill okay. I like how my serpent-eye effect turned out. I think if I painted another one of these guys I'd do something different with the coloration, maybe duller scale colors, as if he sunned himself a lot or something. I also wouldn't have assembled it first (I bought him a long time ago and put him together and just started painting him the other day) as the inner heads especially were a huge pain to get to. Lesson learned! Don't assemble miniatures with enclosed space before applying paint. Anyway, enjoy!
  3. This is yet another Bones plastic figure, 77191 Hydra by Sandra Garrity. I like Garrity's work, and this is no exception, though I feel that it would be more useful as a gaming miniature if its pose were more compact, more curled around on itself. That would probably require that it be moulded with one or two more pieces, but it's already a multi-piece model so that wouldn't be a big problem — at least, not from the end-user's point of view.
  4. One of the first things I did when I received my Bones kickstarter was to take the hydra, mutilate one of its heads and stick some greenstuff on there to make my hydra into Tiamat. Then I promptly banished it to my shelf of shame and occasionally thought about it for a year. Now, reading Metalchaos' excellent conversion thread, I feel motivated to work on it again and to keep it that I will try to post updates here. I will try to do a little sculpting every day so the greenstuff can cure in-between. I am using D&D dragons as references here. First up, the black head: Some plastic surgery. The black dragon really doesn't have the strong jaw of the Hydra... Two rounds of greenstuff. Still needs a bunch of teeth, frills and spines. Horns as well, of course, but I'm making those separately. The blue head: Here I will leave the spines along the back, they are similar enough. The horns and belly scales still need detailing and it needs frills along its jaw. The red head: Chopped off the horns and reduced the jaw and nostrils. His front teeth (though not the canines) were also removed later. I can keep the belly scales here, which is nice or I'd have to the entire body as well. Still debating about the spines, I will see how it goes with the black head before I cut them all off. Comments and critiques very welcome. I hope yo'll enjoy it!
  5. Hi everyone, it's been a while. So, after reading this topic about an unreleased sculpt from Sandra Garrity, I decided I should give it a try. Starting with the metal version of the Hydra, I dug the boneyard in search for replacement heads and wings. After some trial and multiple orders, I chose the following heads; Ebonwrath's head and neck for the Black Dragon head, Blight Fang's head for the Green Dragon head, Diabolus's head for the Red Dragon, Stormwing's head for the Blue Dragon and the Karamor's head for the White Dragon head. The new heads don't fit the Hydra at all, they have to be rectified along with the Hydra's necks. I thought of using Deathsleet's head for the White Dragon head but its head is attached to the body part and it is sold at $38... I also tried the Dragon of fire head and neck for the Red Dragon, but they were too small. Finally, I chose the Dragon of fire wings since they were the right scale to match the Hydra's body. Here's my progress so far. They say that when you cut the head of an Hydra, another will grow.
  6. this one was a request from my son. I don't normally do multi-headed creatures (the split personality issues have to be crazy) but I couldn't find the bones one I had and this one was just sitting on my shelf with a half coat of red. so a little simple green and a coat of primer and he becomes a swamp monster in the desert. The heads have a story of their own. the one rearing back is one of the 2 original heads, he doesn't like to fight or get into a situation where he might lose his head. The others are descents of the second head and the resplitting is taking its toll. The one on the far side of the body is having problems with basic direction The base is done using my new basius 1 pad, desert island. I bought some of these when I heard that the Basius 2 was going to be late and I really was tired of waiting. I think it works pretty darn well. Anyway, enjoy! EDIT: Learn something every day! This one is a reaper mini. I did not know that. Thank you for identifying the piece and the author. My reaper search - fu is not strong. The sculptor made the id, not me, regardless of what the edit says!
  7. I found my little red fan, which means combined with the fact that it snowed today means that the upstairs is no longer a thermonuclear hellhole, and thus I can paint minis again, yay! Since I'm a bit shaky, I figured that I'd get a nice big couple of figures for a couple of board contests underway. So of the Halloween-themed contest, I've got the Flesh Golem and the Undertaker, and since I'm a bit shaky in the hands and have painted all of one human mini thus far, that narrows it down for me. And for the Year of Giants contest, well, why not paint the biggest figure I own at the moment, the Hydra. HAIL HYDRA! *reflexive salute* I also super glued together a couple of my minis that needed it since I had the glue out for the Hydra, and thus as a result if anyone needs any burglaries committed in the next few days, I'm currently lacking fingerprints. So I didn't get much done before my back started being achy, just get down a base layer of Ginger Cookie. Mostly because the Hydra *reflexive salute* took a good three hours and a quarter bottle of paint. Why Ginger Cookie? Because I have about six bottles of the stuff from Xmas. Mr. Five Heads gulped down a huge amount of the stuff, and was rather unhelpful with having tiny white specs appear in his scales every time I changed viewing angle on him. I'm not going to be slathering on a solid coat of paint onto a such a large and scaly beast any time soon. The dried glue on my hands also managed to get stuck to the dry paint, resulting in my removable of a few small chunks of paint. Not only do I have no fingerprints, the tips of my fingers now look like they're rotting off. I'm thinking of painting the flesh golem in ashen blue, with this being Minnesota, a hypothermic quasiundead just makes sense. For the ginger cookie addict? Not sure yet, Maybe keep with the Xmas goodness by splashing some Xmas Wreath over the ginger cookie. I think it'd be nice to have a Tiamat-hydra, but I'm not sure my limited experience will be up to the task of trying to blend five colors down into brown or try and make nice neat stripies down the back.
  8. Here’s my current progress on a diorama I’m building, starring the Bones Hydra! Some backstory… "In the great grassland plains in the south, where immense herds of hooved beasts roam and mighty elephants traverse the sea of grass and islands of forest, there lives a mighty predator. This is the Plains Hydra, a tawny-gold monster that manages to thrive in the savannah. It relies on ambush to capture prey, hiding in the tall grass and waiting for them to graze nearby. As it is quite a large animal, it often has to evacuate a pit in the soil to help hide its bulk, with its heads stretched out and hidden in the grass, waiting…sometimes for days…before prey wanders within reach. With its stubby forelegs more suited for digging and supporting the weight of its heads, it cannot pursue prey very well. So if it misses its initial lunge into the herd, it could possibly wait for weeks before it has another chance. Because of this, all five heads attack at once, increasing its chances that at least one snapping maw will make a kill. Often the herd is so confused and startled that the victim would run away from one head straight into another. It has a powerful sense of smell and will take advantage of any carrion it scents on the wind" And there you have it! I am sculpting the zebras myself …link to the sculpting thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56797-siri-sculpts-some-zebras/ THe hydra only has a very basic base coat, i've been working on the zebras for now
  9. This is my diorama entry for the Spaceship Superstar Painting Challenge. I wanted to do something that was pure Pulp, simple and quick. The bots are from Counterblast, are 18mm and were sculpted by Patrick Keith. The spaceship is from Hydra, is 25mm and was sculpted by Steve Meli. The base is a one inch square plinth from the hobby shop, which I simply painted black. Since I made the switch from Fantasy to Moderns and Pulp, I've never been happier as a painter. In August I finished about 18 figures, never got frustrated and found more joy in this hobby than ever before. Thank you for looking.
  10. For the last couple of months I've been painting more seriously and using subdued palettes. Which is all good and well as I feel I am growing as a painter. But every now and again I think it's a good idea to paint just for the joy of it. I did use a limited palette, unfortunately I limited that palette to a bright glowy green. So in that spirit I painted up this 18mm bot from Counterblast sculpted by Patrick Keith and a flying saucer from Hydra sculpted by Steve Meli. Hope this gave you all a bit of a laugh as life is far too serious and we're all gonna die someday. Thank you for looking.
  11. Next up on the Bones Kickstarter painting list is the Hydra. In general I quite like this figure, but I'd like it better if it was a little more compact — not smaller, exactly, but maybe a bit more curled around itself rather than stretched out. I think that would make it more useful as a gaming miniature. Anyway, on to the painting. So far I've just applied the base colours and given the whole thing an initial wash to bring out the detail, so that I can see what I'm painting. I didn't leave the base paint to cure for long enough; the wash pulled off a little bit of paint just above its hips. Not to worry, that should be easy enough to fix when the detail painting gets under way.
