  1. So these are a couple of "mantis warriors" which I'm painting up as thri-kreen, the insectoid race from the Dark Sun and Spelljammer D&D settings. They are Reaper's 03552: Klichik, Mantis Warrior (the taller one), sculpted by John Winter, and 03142: Zizzix, Mantis Warrior (the squatter one), sculpted by Michael Brower. Here they are for scale (and unassembled) with Reaper's 03155: Vandora Waverunner, Pirate, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. Straight out of the package they have a very flat silhouette. Here they are assembled, primed, and washed with thinned-down Burnt Umber. I gently bent some of their limbs forward to ease the flatness a tad. One source said all thri-kreen were golden brown; another said they were earthy shades of red, yellow, and sometimes green. I decided to paint the taller one red and the shorter one yellow. I mixed some dull, opaque colors using Iron Oxide Red and Yellow, each mixed with a greying-down blend of browns and white, and brushed them on thinly. As god is my witness, this thing is not so pink in real life. I painted this same yellow on both of the creatures' bases. Then I washed over them with some thinned-down Burnt Umber. To be continued!
  2. After over a year of sitting on my painting table, I was finally able to finish this guy up last night. He'll see some game time at some point or I may through him up on Ebay and see if anyone wants him. I wanted to use some brighter colors on this guy. The colors go from Leaf Green-Green Ilse-Blue-Purple. I glazed in the darker green, the blue, and the purple, then highlighted up to where I wanted it. Simple browns for the leather and wood and black for the harness, eyes, and antennae. Thanks for looking!
  3. As always, thoughts, opinions, and thrown pottery welcome. Blitz Mantis
