So I was assigned Morihalda (yay!) for the 2016 Spring Exchange and I received the survey that she filled out to get an idea of what I should paint for her. In the section asking what she would not like to receive, she put "ugly undead things. " Well, as one who happens to love undead things and thinks they're absolutely adorable, I took offense to this (not real offense, obviously,) and decided that I was going to give her a pretty undead thing. So the idea here is that the elf ranger saved what he thought was a beautiful princess, only when she turned around, he didn't have time to run away before she grabbed him and dragged him back to her father's castle. Without further adieu, I give you, "What do you mean you don't want to marry my daughter?" I know, I know, as usual my lighting and pictures are dreadful. Unfortunately, I forgot to take proper pictures before packaging everything up, so what you're seeing are my "Look! I finally finished!" pictures. The figures I used are in the topic tags - they're all Reaper, except for the wolf, which was from Dark Sword Miniatures. My banshee lady is a conversion/head swap/whatever. Her body and hair are from 02582: Queen of High Elves and her "face" is from 02090: The Deathmistress. Special thanks to Froggy for his advice and talking me down from the proverbial ledge while I was anxiously hacking into things. This was my first actual conversion - it was a face transplant rather than a head transplant because I wanted to preserve the original mini's hair. Here's a back view of her so you can see her hair better and also my first ever attempt at a freehand pattern. Knowing that I was giving Mori a banshee lady and Dragoth when she'd directly asked not to receive "ugly undead" (Dragoth's throne is pretty grisly!) I made sure to specifically add things that were on her inspiration list: an elf, a ranger and a wolf and she also mentioned that sea colours and woodland colours were her favourites so I tried to keep that in mind as well. Also special thanks to Knarthex who talked me through some ideas and showed me some examples on what to do with the empty space where the braziers ended up going - I sculpted those with sculpey clay. They're very primitive but I think they got the job done. Especially special thanks to Trevor who bravely sacrificed his skull to go into one of the braziers.
You scroll far enough back into Reapers vaults and there are still some amazing finds. Bakarathi were a race of demons / aliens or undead? Unique to reaper. This thing hunted them I guess. It was released back in 2005. anyone know anything else about it? It looks way better than they did. I painted it up as some kind of plant based ogre, a reaction by the natural world against invasions. It was supposed to be usable in Frosthaven games, but I am not sure if it can be, maybe a wandering encounter? I sent this off to wolfie907, and confirmed that he got it yesterday. I loved painting the outsize claws, and the little nubbins are supposed to be cut tree limbs- but painting the concentric rings proved a pipe dream.
