Here's another one I just finished, also from Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, The Slug Eat Your Face, conceptualized by Theo Meier and sculpted by his dad Tom. Easy and quick miniature to paint once you decide on colors: The pupil in the big eye is a little weird as Mr. Meier basically just put a hole where he thought the pupil might be so that's the black part of his pupil and the other little eye was so deeply sculpted in, and also the pupil was sculpted inwards, that it was a little hard to reach, but a fun miniature to paint just the same!
Well this my take on the Mashaaf figure. Mashaaf the Devourer of Worlds. ~She is One of the Great old ones from the outer planes. Her home is a deep chasm in the bowls of the earth. She only surfaces to feed during great cataclysmic events or when called upon by her followers with a horrific ceremony. Legends say she feeds on the nightmares of people during times of strife.~ The figure to me looks to be a amalgamation of Slug, Maggot, Caterpillar, Spider and maybe some Crab. I tried to make it look as though her top was possibly a hard surface the stone fused to it. I also tried to make the belly portion look slimy and light emitting like a glow worm. I also wanted to try and make it look like she had purple internals partially showing through her skin, but wasn't able to figure out how to do it. In the process I have about 8 coats of various paints on the belly. So I just went with stripes for coloration contrasts. Also the glow effect I tried on the base doesn't show to well in the photos but it is obvious when looking at it. I'm still learning and developing my skills and being my 3rd figure to do since my long (25+ years) break from painting I like it. Was fun painting and putting the base together. Also I am using a tablet for my camera and no light box. Still trying to figure out how to take good pictures too. 3 different front views hoping you can see the glow and eyes. First time ever doing multicolored eyes effect. 2 side views for the back detail. Its another perspective on the figure. I brought to the game room and the guys liked it and can't wait to see it used in a game. C&C always appreciated. Joe
Tom Meier, legendary founder of Ral Partha and currently running Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, does not just sculpt exquisite elves and stunning French and Indian War minis. Oh, no. He has a collection, called "Savage and Sparkle," of extremely eccentric little things which seem to have been designed by a couple of young relatives of his. One such is "Slug Eat Your Face." He is a little over an inch tall. I'm afraid I painted him faster than I would have liked, to be ready for a game with our children. I also did not give him a matte finish, as I felt the shiny look conveyed slime better.
