  1. Just a simple pair of horrible spacebeasts frolicking in their native hellworld! I'll have to gloss up the molten bits of the base at some point. Any tips on lava bases I should be aware of? In retrospect, I think the glowing mouths were inspired by the "gorilla-wolf motherbroccolers" from Attack the Block. I do not know if the designers intended this, but the pair of them are in a perfect pose for Magma Wrasslin.'

    Nolzur's Shambling Mound

    It seems that scale creep is a very real thing! This is Nolzur's delightfully brutish and verdant Shambling Mound. For a Large creature it is very large indeed, easily the size of a tabletop-scale elephant or bigger, and extending way off a 2x2 base with its outstretched limb. I put some straight-pin mushrooms on it, as I do. Here's a group shot with Reaper's beautiful Swamp Shambler and a WotC grab-bag Dryad and Needle Blight, for scale comparison.
  3. Been working on this guy for a while; finished him (for a given value of "finished") a couple weeks ago but didn't take pics until recently. The sculpted beard wasn't doing it for me, so I added some reindeer moss. Glued on some tiny leaves that look like miniaturized burr oak leaves. His huckable boulder I'm using for other terrain. This is a big fella! C&C welcome as always.

    Nolzur's Marilith, Red-Bellied

    A Marilith from the Nolzur's/ Wizkids series! My love of snake people has been documented previously ( http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/82155-cascabelle-the-rattler-woman-02833-possibly-nsfw/ ), so I really couldn't resist. Tried to paint her underbelly as an Australian Red-Bellied Black Snake (venomous, of course), and the dorsal surfaces as a pale blue-grey variant of the North American Northern Red-Bellied Snake (non-venomous, of course). Inspiration pics are in the WIP thread here (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84087-rigels-to-do-list/&tab=comments#comment-1811168 ) Leather armor is always a challenge for me, but thanks to good advice from the forum I think it worked out. Several different lighting schemes here: She also makes a guest appearance in my Heckfella post!
  5. Since beholders destroy things that they look at ...it seemed fitting to adapt the title from Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley. I happened upon 2 beholders at my local game shop. The first was painted with a generic beholder color scheme and the second as Xanathar and Sylgar.
  6. Some partly modified Nolzur's Myconid Adults, plus a WotC Manes demon I got in a random box. I had no need of flabby little demons, and I do have need of spore servants, so I took drill and sewing pins to them as described in this thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85573-putting-the-fun-in-fungal-infestation/ Behold Mushroom Buddy 1! He's inspired by Boletus subvelutipes, Boletus bicolor, and other more flashy boletes. And here's Mushroom Buddy 2, modded up with pins. More of a Boletus edulis / B. pinophilus look to him, with enokitake/ Flammulina velutipes sprouts. More of a waxy-cap or psilocybe color to the little sprouts though; all pale would be boring. And here's Cletus the spore servant. I figure in life he was a very fat goblin. I made these mushroom stems a very subtle purple (Slaanesh grey + Reaper Vampiric Flesh). And here's a group shot!

    Thri-Kreen Wizkids

    Picked up the pair of Thri-Kreen from the FLGS last week. Decided to paint them up for my DND game as a pair of bounty hunters set to capture the group running in my game. They are, as of yet, unaware that there is a bounty on their heads.
  8. Berton & Bradbury bills itself as a MAGIC circus, so let's see a couple of fortune-tellers and mystics! The lady--Mme Zaragossa, the Sybil of Syracuse--is from the Nolzur's pack with the barmaid. The headscarf and dress looked vaguely Roma, so I decided to take that and run with it. And a pack of Deep Cuts wizard accessories I had gotten for the books and bottles included a crystal ball, so this was an easy choice! She refuses to clarify if the Syracuse she hails from is Greece or New York. Can she actually predict the future? For player characters, absolutely. The gentleman--Dr. Desmond Mesmer, Mentalist Extraordinaire--is from Black Cat's Civillians and Townsfolk line. He has a great worried expression. Maybe he's picking up on a hostile, and equally powered, intellect? The hypno-eidetic phantasms of his Zoeotropic Chresmodeon won't fool anyone with ACTUAL knowledge of the future! Or perhaps that oddly enthusiastic volunteer placed something from Mesmer's deeply-buried past in the lead-lined Box of Secrecy.
  9. Every circus needs an animal trainer act, and while I could have done the standard pith-helmeted explorer-type, FireFox, Female Super Hero (50041) here has a sweet costume *and* a whip. (Besides beastmastery and superhero work, this gal would also make a good luchador.) Decided I'd do well to follow the sculptor's intent and kept a fox color scheme. That works well with red hair, and red hair works well with green eyes and pale skin. The costume itself is incredibly low-cut and with lapels that would make Jack Kirby proud. Will that scandalous cleavage get unwanted attention from the coarser elements of the crowd? Probably; but she has a small army of beasts at her command, AND a whip. And it sells tickets. The bear is a Nolzur/Wizkids beast, as are the panthers.
  10. Another Christmas ornament made! The ice chunks are, of course, just styrofoam bits. The polar bear was a Schleich; a bit big even for a large bear, but fine for a celestial ursine. Here's the angel outside the ornament. The Enochian glyphs on her cape are intended to read "Stay Frosty."
  11. The last ornament! This one a little more ambitious; a vignette showing perhaps an aspect of the Winter Solstice. The spirit of cold and death being checked. The days are getting longer again now. Here's the Ghost King, in shades of Ice Blue, Toxic Mist, Dark Sky, and Oozing Purple (w/Ushabti Bone). And our heavenly host!

    Howdy, In the mooood... Kev!
  13. Venus, as we all know, is a boiling toxic hell of molten metal and sulfurous rains. But in our grandparents' day and the day of *their* parents, it was a mysterious swamp/rainforest of impossible lushness and growth, a primordial and fecund Ur-Jungle of perpetual rot and growth. So it is in my Spacefuture games. Nolzur's makes a Displacer Beast, which iconic D&D monster was inspired by van Vogt's Coeurl (from the "Voyage of the Space-Beagle"). It seemed fitting to paint it up as a SPACE PANTHER! taking patterning cues evenly from tigers and blue-ringed octopodes. Here is a Hydra Valkeeri trooper with a disruptor rifle. They are a broad-shouldered, statuesque people, and I've painted them as photosynthetic. Which is the more dangerous game? Who the hunted, and who the hunter? Or do they hunt together, pursuing that floundering interloper upon their planet--MAN? (Yes, it's that one; that's what they are hunting.)
  14. Howdy, International Mini Painting Month - Day 4 Kev! P.S. Re-positioned(rotated forward) the horns

    Wizkids T-Rex

    Ever since I was a kid, I've been crazy about Dinosaurs. I'm probably underselling that a bit. Regardless, my love for the creatures has carried over into adulthood. So, when Wizkids previewed this I was...apprehensive. Their preview image was taken at a less than flattering angle that really didn't show much of thw mini. Then they showed up in stores and sure enough, the "mini" pretty much rules. T-Rex has always been my favorite. Especially in a fantasy context. I was always amused when reading those old Marvel Conan comics when Conan and his sidekicks were harrowed by a dragon and the reveal of said "dragon" was actually a Tyrannosaurus. Anyway, I've never had the opportunity to paint many Dinos since I took up this hobby. And I usually didn't like what options were out there. I'm really grateful that Wizkids released something cool AND affordable.
  17. Father Thomas (50081) and Sister Maria (50159) tend to the spiritual wellbeing of the student body when not teaching Theological Traditions, Comparative Religion, and Heresiology classes. Miskatonic being Miskatonic, these spiritual needs are sometimes less metaphorical than the good father would prefer. (There's very high turnover in the department, and the stresses are beginning to wear on him. He doesn't do well with loud noises or sudden movements anymore.) Sister Maria has taken to performing corporal works of grace with a metal-backed ruler. The power of Christ is compelling, but a wallop from eighteen inches of cold iron edged with silver can compel one just as well. (Side note: the ruler on the sprue was flimsy and prone to bend, but I had a small piece of steel that fit perfectly. No more bending problems.) Here is one such crisis of faith. There is a reason they keep that thirteenth-century illuminated manuscript chained to the lectern. (Demon is a Nolzur's gargoyle if memory serves.)

    Howdy, We're riding on the groove line, tonight! Kev!

    Kev!'s Nolzur's - Waitress

    Howdy, Can I interest you in a frosty brew from the tap? Kev!
  20. Howdy, Here is the little girl to go with the bucket boy... Kev!
  21. The Rajah and one of his favored courtier/entertainers. These were both a delight to paint. Aroudj there has a peacock feather and embroidered cuffs that I'm quite pleased with, and I'm happy with the blending on Nemesra's skirt and ribbons. The brazier is Nolzur's.
  22. Howdy, Towhead, barefoot, bucket boy... Kev! P.S. Wait up, Jill!
  23. Coyote waits, out in the desert. He is always hungry, that old trickster. Bonus! a couple of Nolzur/Wizkids beasties. Vulpes vulpes flavus and .
  24. Good old Mac's, home of the Cheap Rotgut Special and the Slightly Less Cheap Rotgut Special! Meet all kinds of folk in a place like this. Specifically, you can meet 50155: Mickey O'Doul; 50319: Olav, Dwarf Gambler; 59034: Muckraker; a couple more Pulp Figures Americano Mercenarios (including the incredibly suave Tucson Juan and the grizzled Brazos Pete); Margarita, the Nolzur's barmaid; and a female Law Dog from a line whose name I can't recall. This is the last of my Weird West series, until I find and paint more (such as Old Man Buzzard, or an ogre converted to a Cannibal Mutant Hillbilly). Hope you've enjoyed this strange, picture-heavy trip! I for sure have.
