yuan-ti Nagendra swordsman (77695)
Count Urlik posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingFirst time playing with the copper triad, and man, was that fun! I got a little burned out on the NMM, so the sword could use more work - I was really thrown by the runes. Also, the paint job was inspired by an awesome animal, the blue pit viper. I added a picture. I may do another one at some point, and that one will probably get started with a magenta wash so that the scales end up with that amazing scalloping that the real snake displays. C&C welcomed!
Aard_Rinn posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingReptile-people... I use a *lot* of reptile-people in games. Not my games, necessarily - but there's a couple published books that are heavy on Yuan-ti, and a years-long campaign I was in had whole tribes of lizardfolk. With that said, this isn't the first time I've tried painting up a good-sized unit of lizardfolk warriors for one of my games. The first time, I used Reptus - but, I'll be honest, the pinning and gluing on them was a ton of work, and while I love some of the sculpts, they're pretty big for lizardfolk. Then I tried the Van Horne lizardfolk, the metal ones from KS1, but... honestly, there just aren't enough of them. Two sculpts, a ranged and melee fighter, does not a raiding party make, which is a shame, because they're probably my favorite interpretation of lizardfolk. So, round three. This time, I really put in the research! I love how Julie Gunthrie does reptiles, and so I started looking at her offerings with Reaper. The Serpentfolk Evoker from Pathfinder is an old favorite, and poking around, I eventually found three more options by her - the Degenerate Serpentfolk, Serpentfolk Warrior, and Lizardman Shaman. So, with something adjacent a plan in mind, I bungled off to Reapercon last year to pick up my latest attempt at lizardy goodness - four each of the warriors, and three of the evoker, for 15 yuan-ti minis or 12 lizardfolk. Fortunately, figures-in-hand, I knew I had made the right choice. These minis are *very* close in size, and around the same as or slightly smaller than a large PC figure. They've got tails - a big plus, I'm sorry, both yuan-ti and lizardfolk deserve tails IMO - and generally look like they were sculpted to go together. I wish there were one or two more in this set - maybe an archer and another swordsman - but it's a good looking group! My goal is to paint them up in such a way that they can serve as either yuan-ti OR lizardmen without much issue, since I'd rather not have to paint two groups. Therefore, I'm going old-school - green skin with lots of browns and reds in the armor and on the clothing, red or yellow eyes, and so on. The one exception will be the Serpentfolk Evoker - I want to do two of him in green, but also make an albino cobra version of him so that I can use it as a commander. So far, they're cleaned and glued to bases. I've also got a new cell phone arriving today, so part of my goal is to get some better pics.... we'll see how it goes!
Serpent Summoner by Glitterwolf
Glitterwolf posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingDesign by EPIC Miniatures. Printed it on my Elegoo Mars. Part of the Stygian Faction in my Desert Themed Project. WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79372-shifting-sands-glitterwolf-paints-egyptian-undead/ The expedition had ventured far into the Desert, eager to search for new specimens they had travelled farther than expected. But what a great journey it had been. The wagons were filled with animals they had found, some still alive in small cages, most preserved in bottles with alcohol. Dr. Elisa Hartmann was thrilled, she was certain her colleagues at the University of Mosul would be envious of her findings. Several unknown species of scorpions, lizards and birds and even a rare tortoise. Suddenly Ahmed shouted : SNAKE! Excited Dr. Hartmann ran to Ahmed, maybe it was a rare serpent? She hoped so! Ahmed came running towards her, TURN BACK! He shouted. A bit confused Elisa stood still, Ahmed ran past her. Surely Ahmed wasn't afraid of some snake? And then she saw it. It was bigger than a man and when it came closer she noticed the human torso with four arms. Hypnotized by the image she stood there. *********************** The University of Mosul would never receive the specimens. Dr. Elisa Hartmann was reported missing.

Maledrakh's Snakeman Warrior 77153
Maledrakh posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI have always found the concept of snakemen, with the heads, bodies and undercarriages of snakes, but arms like men, to be a bit of an evolutionary fluke. How exactly did these evolve? Of course, the answer is as always "magic" or "don't ask, don't tell". This one is from the very first Bones kickstarter and as such is in the earliest, whitest and most bendy type of Bones material. The weapons were a bit noodly, but nothing that could not be fixed with a spot of hot water though. I painted this as a coral snake. First the red, then the yellow, then the black. 77153: Snakeman Warrior From the first Bones kickstarter, Swamp Things subset. Reaper Miniatures sculpted by Julie Guthrie Bonesium PVC 30mm base.
Nagendra Ranger 14423/06155 (multi-pack)
Chaoswolf posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI finished this guy Friday night, he was a rescue from the melt table at last Reapercon. He was relatively quick to paint, and pretty fun, too. Some of the shading I did on his 'belly' scales is hard to see due to the angle of the pics, but what you see on his bottom half is also present on his chest area, too. I got his eyes looking pretty good (although to be fair, they are a bit bigger than the average human sized figures eyes). I had thought about giving him some patterns on his scales, but decided against it. The base was one of the first ones I've done using base stamps; I'm not entirely happy with it, but it's not awful, either. More practice both with the stamps, and with what material I use for the base is in order. This one was straight Green Stuff. Thanks for looking, please let me know what you think. ETA----I put 2 SKU numbers in the title because he is available either by himself (14423) or in a multi-pack with 9 total figures (06155).
77153: Nagendra Stalker/Snakeman Warrior
Ash Adler posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI'd felt like I was banging my head on a wall with the main mini that I was working on lately, so I set that aside to work on this as a something simple to make me feel a bit better. My first try at NMM, too (which shows ). All I can say is that the contrast really did look better to my eyes until I started taking photos of it. At least it's somewhat made up for by how nice the eyes and the gem on the left bracer turned out. More photos and thought process at my blog: link C&C welcome
