  1. I went canon with this. No airbrush. It’s a great sculpt. Really it’s too bad Reaper would have to make a knock off version because of the IP. I bet they’d make a great remorhaz.

    ...or, as pretty much everybody else in the RPG world knows it, a Remorhaz. From memory, I think remorhaz are supposed to be more of a light ice-blue, but I got a bit carried away, so this one has more of a tropical look about it than an arctic one. Never mind. This was a real quickie paint job, taking about an hour and a half from start to finish. There's a lot more detail I could concentrate on, and maybe I'll revisit it one day, but for now it's good enough for gaming, and that's good enough for me.
  3. So, one of my favorite creatures ever is the Remorhaz, possibly just because its name is so much fun to spell. Also possibly because it's a giant arthropoedic ice-snake. Which I guess just makes it an ice-centipede, but "arthropoedic" is also fun to spell. Anyway. So I think Remorhaz are totally cool, and I wanted to pick up this mini for years and years, but never did because, well, dolladollabills. Then Bones I happened, and my mad longing for armor-plated terror-worm action could be satisfied at last. So of course it sat for a couple years before I got around to painting it. Much like the Kraken of Bones II, this was the model that made me squee like a chibi banshee when it was announced during Bones I...much like this Remorhaz, the Kraken won't likely see paint for a while. So. Remorhaz are described as icy blue in color, but they glow reddishly from the heat they produce when agitated. How do they produce this heat? Who knows? It's an opportunity to play with some fun cool/warm contrast. I took some liberties with the actual colors, but feel OK about it. Here he is: I painted this guy up in a very Wappelish fashion, with quick-and-dirty basecoat transitions from shadow to highlight, then glazed the transitions. The armor scales are done that way, then hit with some fairly heavy ridge highlights to pop them back up. The stones are pretty well just a basecoat in grey, then purple and green glazes to put in the shadows, followed by a drybrushed highlight to pull out the texture (the stones themselves are broken-up bits of slate roofing tile). All told, I completed this paint job in somewhere between six and seven hours, mostly while rewatching Breaking Bad. So, let me know what you think! (anyone else bothered that tags don't support apostrophes?)
  4. Getting this affixed to its base. Next is to get some rubble to give the burrowing out of the ground look. The bottom half will get repurposed for a D&D Salamander lord.
