Blood Imps hunting for Giant Skull Scarab


Recommended Posts

Here is the diorama I presented at the Summer of Monsters contest. It depicting a fight between three 02197 Blood Imps sculpted by Rene Perez and a 02564 Giant Scarab Beetle sculpted by Bob Olly.

 

One of the Imps was converted to look like he was killed by acid burns, dropping one of its swords on the ground. The Scarab shell was cut and repositioned so that it will form open elytra. The bottom part inner body was filled with green stuff and sculpted like a real beetle abdomen. Finally, I slightly modified P02744B Cichastus wings set to create hind wings.

 

The Giant Scarab is not glued to the tree so it can be positioned facing up or down. That way, it can be displayed as if it's attacking the Imps or fleeing after being fought off by Imp reinforcements. The custom-built pine tree and base were made with wires and green stuff. The paint choice for the Scarab was essentially inspired by the flamboyant striped love beetle colors. I used twenty four different colors and three different syntactic flock.

 

Here is a link to the WIP topic that I wrote during the making off of my diorama.

I hope you’ll enjoy it. C&C are very welcome!

Wow Metal! This really turned out great! Personally I prefer the beetle leaving the the ruckus behind him as the battle was clearly won. I think the beauty of it is that it works both ways!

 

Now if I could only find some time to paint again...

      This is Miguel Zavala's redesigned Umber Hulk, printed on my Mars Pro and painted with Vallejo acrylics.
       
      It's a monster I haven't used much, if at all, in my own campaign, but my favourite character of old, Sir Fnord the Pretty Neat died of them twice, both times by having his head ripped clean off.

      I've been slowly (very slowly) working my way through some of the larger non-humanoid figures in my collection.  This one took me about  a year to complete, mostly because of the wings. I haven't figured out how to do the translucent effect yet, but I'm getting closer.

      Love these little guys, they are so cute and evil looking at the same time.  This is the Bones version.  
       

       

       
      I previously did two metal homonculi, who will be happy to have a new pack member.

      Slowly working through the horde of plastic.  These guys are about the most boring things ever.  I freely admit to crappy basecoat, drybrush, and wash techniques to get these done as quickly as possible.  Enjoy: 
       

       

       

       
      I even got crappy photos.

      Hello everyone, I hope those who were able to attend enjoyed their ReperCon weekend. It was fun to follow along on Twitch while painting. Here are pictures of 60027, Dorella Kreeg the Ogre Shaman. It's the forth Hook Mountain Ogre model sculpted by David Summers for Pathfinder. It was painted with Reaper MSP paint and stand on 50mm wide base.
