Sculpted by Shawn Lux from a design by Matt Beaumont. I assembled and painted this as a 21st wedding anniversary gift for my husband. Here's a scale shot with Reaper's 03135: B'thuhl, Bathalian Pirate. It's pretty big. It came with a resin head and body, separate hands, a puff of "steam" (which I left out as too difficult for me to pin), and the large smokestack; and metal ears, the small smokestack, and the whistle. This graffiti says "Om mani padme hum" in Sanskrit: I used just two metallic colors, a pure silver and a pure gold, layered with a lot of colors to suggest reflections, grime, rust, and patinas. The base is painted a sort of orchid purple, and those are reflections of it painted on the hands. There is a deluxe version of this figure with a steampunk yin-yang "lotus", but I got the basic version and made my own base from a sort of wooden doily from the craft store which resembled both a lotus and a gear. Comments are appreciated.
So I was browsing around Steam instead of painting minis last night. I found they now have a section for games that are in development, but still very "raw". I guess a lot of people want to replicate the success of MineCraft having sold millions before the game was actually finished. In that section is a game named, "Prison Architect". It's pre-alpha right now but the video really made me want to give them $19.99. It was the best laugh I've had in a while watching a video. I especially love the line about, "exclusive access to game breaking bugs"... then they go on to list a few and show some footage of them in action. I'd recommend anyone who is into video games or could just use a good laugh to go to Steam and search Prison Architect.
