  1. From the depths of SPACE, they came! A menace unlike any the Solar System had yet seen! Their weapons--inexorable! Their strange mental powers--UNCANNY! Bombshell's Counterblast line has a faction called the Edofleini. Can't prove anything, but I feel strongly that the designer had read David Wiesner's "June 29, 1999" at a formative age. The Edo are giant-brained cephalopods with zap guns and psionic powers, and if that doesn't tickle your fancy, perhaps a Space Squid has used an Emotive Transductor to suck all the JOY and WONDER from your heart? (They can do that, you know!) I couldn't resist, anyway. Tried to give them a color scheme inspired by this coconut octopus. Here's the four-eyed leader of the bunch, in its magnificent robe of office. The gold-armored subordinate with Neural Halberd: A vicious enforcer, tentacles flailing: A four-eyed underling: And a runtish Spawnling: And here's a group shot! Keep watching the skies! Guard your brains! ARE YOUR THOUGHTS YOUR OWN, CITIZEN? Ever so many more pictures below if you click:
  2. Wish I'd taken more in-progress pics here, but when the muse strikes... Anyway, I got my hands on some figures from Bombshell's Counterblast, specifically the Edofleini faction. Could be described as BRAIN SQUIDS FROM SPAAAAAAACE!! (I assume you read that with the reverb turned up.) Decided to use the color scheme from this lovely shot of a coconut octopus: These were the paints used for the bodies; AP Toxic Mist plus some turquoisish Reaper sample paint was used for the suckers, and AP Greedy Gold for the jewelry and weaponry. Also used AP Kraken Skin for the leader's mini-cape. Seemed appropriate. Blue-black tentacles, eventually shading up to the rusty Astorath Red. A touch of color for the accessories and suckers: Then a great amount of drybrushing in shades of orange and yellow. I wanted the siphons to be the brightest points. I feel like they are close to done--should I add another coat of red wash, or use something darker?

    77516 - Dark Young

    Been a while working on this guy between work travel, but finally calling him done. I needed to do a non-humanoid to cleanse the palate, and when I saw a picture of a humbolt squid (diablo rojo) I thought it would be a cool concept to paint a Dark Young like that. It’s got the tentacles anyway. This was also my first time painting off a bright picture. I see you pros’ WIP doing that and thought I’d give it a try. I like how he turned out, but I should have spent more time doing transitioning/blending on the glowing tentacles and SOL. I learned a lot from everyone’s advice on this forum so I appreciate the constant challenges and learning opportunities. I also heard someone’s photo advice about using black background to make it brighter and that worked great. My light box is coming in handy thanks again to you all!! Hope you enjoy, and feel free to give me C&C. Looking to improve each time!
  4. I've started the Kraken, since I've gotten strong hints that it will be a useful figure soon. Here are the pieces primed with Reaper's Brown Liner: You may notice that not only is the shipwreck separate, but the Kraken itself is in two pieces, the body / tail and the mouth / head / tentacles. This is because yesterday my youngest pointed out that another Kraken I was assembling for a friend, parked briefly in a decorative candleholder, looked just like a giant plant monster. Sort of like this: Anyhow, I plan to paint the front end sort of plantlike and the back end sort of spiny lobsterlike and blue-tac them together when needed to be a Kraken. The first thing I did was throw some medium bright green on, because plants and algae. It's still a bit wet in these pictures, and so looks brighter and more opaque than it really is. I'm just slopping the paint on at this point, getting color more or less where I want it, to be refined and nuanced later. Next I added some pure Mars Red, thinned down a bit so it's not opaque, to make the body look more lobsterlike. I mixed the red with some Titanium White to make a dull pink and painted around the creature's mouth. I hope to eventually make the tentacle canopy look disturbingly flowerlike. I mixed a soft yellow-brownish very pale cream color and scumbled it almost dry onto the creature's belly and corresponding outside of its tentacle canopy. Then I started mixing some dull grey-browns and bringing up weathered wood lights on the shipwreck (Reaper Sea Hag, unfinished, for scale). I started painting the creature's tentacles green. I ran out of the color about halfway around. I mixed a new batch which was brighter and yellower, and here is one of my big painting principles: It doesn't matter if the colors don't match. I almost never paint with a single color, and I layer on so many different colors for highlights and shading that by the end they more or less match anyway. Not only don't I sweat color matching, I prefer to paint with variations of colors to get a richer effect than any single color can manage, no matter how pure. Anyway, here are the tentacles in progress. I didn't take any in-focus pix of the shipwreck, but I dry-brushed some of the same bright green on it for more algae. And here's one last shot of the tentacles with more of the yellower brighter green brought over the duller, darker one.

    77291: Kraken

    I painted this around 9 months to a year ago and am just now getting up the courage to start posting some of my minis. This one I'm pretty proud of. My photography skills on the other hand could use some work.

    PP - Swamp Horror - Minion

    I don't have many minions or a use for this at the moment, but I couldn't resist any longer, such a cool model. Trying to figure out the best way to base it was the most difficult part. Hope you enjoy!
