  1. Nolzur's do make a few great monster minis, even though most -if not all- of their humanoid minis are too small, weedy and have too shallow detailing for my liking. Here is one: Yep, a dead head. 50mm base. The main colour is Citadel Contrast Plaguebearer flesh, the rest is regular paint. This mini was finished September 12th 2020. Zombie Beholder Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures, Wave 11 2020 Wizkids I have no idea who sculpted this, as WizKids do not -as far as I know- publish this info. PVC, 50mm base
  2. After several iterations of painting and base, I'm finally happy with my Griffon and I'm calling it finished! The mini ended up looking a bit cartoony I did go for something else initially, but it seemed too plain for a griffon, so I was happy to exchange realism for 'striking'. More on PSA. And I just finished redoing the base -- thanks for support on the WIP board.
  3. I planned to go for the coloring suggestion on the box, except with brighter feathers. After base coat and a wash it seemed to turn rather plain. I keep the underside this way, while for the top side of the wings I started adding some variation to the feathers, gradually daring to add more detail and contrast. Took a while to get there, but in the end I was happy and called it finished. I even took a fun picture with it: But now that I'm a few minis wiser, I demoted him from finished to lacking base. And this is where I am stuck now. I had this plan of making a sandstone cliff looking base. I positioned him and started building up terrain, working carefully not to damage the finished mini. I colored some stones of various sizes in a few colors so I don't need to paint as much around the mini and I started to glue my rocks carefully around the base. I kept working on it for hours thinking I am getting somewhere, but once I took a break and looked at it again from all sides... I stand by my rocks, I think in a few steps they'll look great, but the scene makes no sense. These are not cliffs, more like a stone quarry, what would a griffon be doing there? - that's too specific and unlikely. Time to "delete" this somehow and start over... Wish me luck! https://pocketsizedadventurers.wordpress.com/2019/12/18/griffon-wings/
  4. My photography has really been sub par for some time so I am trying out som different settings on the camera, including changing the backdrop to try to find a setting that works better than before. Focus is key, deep focus is even more key. I think I might just have cracked it. At least for now. Just some incy wincy spiders today, the pack called "spiders" from Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures. The dark background has it's uses, but did not really work for these models. #1 #2 #3 These spiders are a little bit too similar to the real ones intermittently crawling across my walls both in size and shape, and I have had to stop myself fixing to slap them as they were lying about my desk. I made 40mm bases for them. One of the spiders came with a webbed victim-piece, which can be seen above. Super fast paint scheme, gloss black all over, dark green drybrush, then red in three shades for the red bits, then gloss varnish. The colour scheme is inspired by a real spider, the Australian (...because of course Australian!) Ambicodamus Crinitus, aka the Red and Black spider, Imaginative naming there. Luckily the real red and black is no more than a centimetre or so long and not seen as dangerous to humans. One of the models had a piece missing from one leg. I could not be bothered with complaining and requesting a new one though. Also, as is usual with the Nolzur line, the renders used to promote and illustrate the minis in webshops come across as way more detailed than the actual models. Something which I think actually is a bit disingenuous, really. Have you seen some dwarfs that were strolling through these woods?

  5. Recently finished up another jarred mini, this one a Beholder. Beholder mini - Built on the base with a coin pile and treasure chest (also from Nolzur's/WizKids) as well as some hand punched loose coins and lots of sculpted resin Close ups. In jar - Client wanted a nice, small, display piece for his desk that he doesnt have to worry about the piece getting dusty. Metal plate on bottom of beholder, and magnets inside bottom of jar, if he chooses to use it for tabletop. Also more handcut coins glued inside the jar. writing on top was a found fantasy script that he liked, I translated 'Imprisoned Nightmare' as the writing. Have to say that I had so much fun painting this mini that I ordered 2 more to play around with later this year. Think I want to zombify one, and the other will be similar to this but with more elaborate basing.
  6. Every once in a while I get the hankering to do some Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures. I like the monsters and have bought a few, but I can't stand the itty bitty truscale of the humans though -they are simply too small for my tastes, the shallow details disappearing beneath the oft-to thick primer. Here are Xorn, the three-legged three-eyed earth elemental with a massive maw! There are two to a pack, and I think they are supposed to represent a low-level and a high-level version. However, they are the exactly the same size, so who can tell the difference in power level? I stuck them on 32mm bases, as they fit well. They come pre-primed, so I painted them by sloshing on some thin greenish grey, followed by drybrushing with sandy yellow and some bone white. I put some old citadel imperial purple in the maw, and slathered the things in dark tone quickshade ink. Well. maybe not slathered. I made sure to draw off most pooling before they dried up leaving those horrible tide marks. I did the teeth and claws in bone white, and the eyes with several shades of blue with a white centre and some gloss varnish. Not really happy with the eyes, so I might revisit them at some point. These also are good as some sort of Cthuloid entities or chaotic daemonspawn somethings for Conan to send back to the Abyss!
