Psst... Hey, wanna see something cool?

Recommended Posts

 

 

I approve!

 

 

I do not, however, approve of the new quote function. Stupid technology.

 

 

*looks at post*

 

Well now I've just done all kinds of weird stuff to it. I think I'll quit while I'm behind.

If you hit the little lightswitch looking button "BBCode Mode" it changes it so you can edit out other quotes.

 

And you ought to approve, your WIP thread on her was what inspired my desire for a Takhisis :lol:

 

 

Oh, cool I didn't play around with that light switch widget. I've already reported the issues with quoting to Kit. He said he wasn't seeing it, I'm using Chrome on OSX 10.7.

I'm using Chrome and suddenly all my reply notifications have this in them;

The   is annoying and makes the emails very challenging to make sense of in some cases.

Wait, so when was Kally II revealed?

 

I haven't seen Kally II either. That should consist of changes after the sculptor was asked to open the mouth and add detail to the stuff between the ribs.

Players: Yay! We've slain the dragon.

*pfft*

 

As if any of my players would survive Livingmaul.

 

"Hello, adventurers. I am Livingmaul. Prepare to die."

 

Paladin: "Foul Dragon! We laugh at your threats! I am Sir Shiny-"

 

"I know who you are. I know who all of you are. You're the paladin of breakfast. You are the wizard known as lunch. You are the thief of supper. And you, that portly friar over there, are the cleric of straight to my thighs."

That knight is doomed. So is all my free time, which I will spend painting my precious, precious undead dragon. Stunning!!!

 

Looks to me if he did get swallowed he'd just fall out of the dragon's neck hole(s). I would so make my players roll a d% chance to see if they fell out or got completely swallowed or not! :bday:

Thirded.

 

It's a beautiful figure, but I'm just not that big on undead, so I'll probably never pick it up. But a living version? Would probably get two, just so my son wouldn't touch mine.

Milliput. Just; Milliput.

 

And yes, if Nethyrmaul ever makes it over here, I will get yet another one, just so I can resurect her; This was discussed when the Kickstarter was still running. Plans will be made. Relatives will suffer a remorseless campaign of dropped hints come Birthday/Christmas. Whatever it takes. . . .

 

 

 

(Um. . . Am I strange for already planning how these bones are going to be modified, before they even exist?)

      Who let the dogs out (of hell)?

      Hi everyone.  Back again with some infernal pooches.
       

       
      These are the Hell hounds from the Bones 4 Fan Favorites Expansion.  They were fun and challenging.  All those glowing lava details were a pain.  I think I managed to get them to turn out alright though.  Also had fun with the lava bases.
       
      More Photos of the Hell Hounds beneath the spoiler:
       
      In all, I like these guys.  Their bases were a lot of fun and really pop from a lot of my other minis.  I'll be posting more of my infernal collection soon, but figured these were a great place to start.
       
      Which Hound turned out best?

      Continuing deeper into the dry steppe I cane across a brass dragon in its native habitat.  I think she was keeping watch over a nearby nomadic tribe but she took off before I was able to ask.
       
      Another old piece of miniature history, this is the brass dragon from the 3rd and final dragon of the month series by Grenadier.  The amount of energy put into this mini is pretty amazing and, like all its brethren, this dragon has stood the test of time.  I painted this one using a basecoat of scale 75 metallic but then did all the highlight work using a wax metallic set I recently acquired on sale.  
      Hope you like her; this series does have some seriously dramatic positions for the dragons, especially when you consider that these are all softer, lead based minis.

      Further efforts to produce a dozen dragons this year brought me out to the desert sands where even dragons new to worry about being spotted if they want a decent meal.  To this end desert dragons are campflaged to look like the ground from above and the sky from below.
       
      Hope you enjoy him

      Hi everyone.  Got a couple of Cool Cats to show off today.
       

       
      I went back and forth for a long time on whether or not a wanted a group of matching lions, or if I wanted variety.  As a DM, I feel these would be used most often as Druidic wildshapes, familiars, or summons.  I also couldn't deny that i wanted to try some different techniques on each, so I decided to go with a Lion, a Tiger, and a Black Panther.
       
      Tiger (Reaper Bones Lion 77341)
       

       
      First up was the Tiger.  She was actually the Lioness from the Reaper Bones Lions set (77341).  Her sculpt looked like it could read as a tiger, and that was my major inspiration for wanting to paint each of them differently.  I used a lot of references images on her and the subsequent cats as well.  Really wanted to get the coloration right.  I'm happy I did, because my instinct was to use more orange tones, but in actuality, tigers have more of a warm brown color.  I used red-hair colors to bring out the highlights.  The stripes weren't as difficult as I was expecting.  I just used my reference photos as a guide and did my best.  I do worry that people will misinterpret the nose stripes as poorly-drawn whiskers though.  She also looks a little dopy head-on but I promise that that's the sculpt.

      Lion (Reaper Bones Lions 77341)

       
      Next up is the other half of the Lion set.  This guy was always destined to be a lion.  Once again, I'm really glad I used reference images.  Its funny how many animals we envision incorrectly.  I learned this lesson well after painting up the Bones 4 pig way too pink, even though I knew it shouldn't be that color.  I'm really pleased with my coloration on the mane.  The only dry brushing on this guy is the rock base.  Time consuming but worth the result.  I think the muscle highlights look pretty natural.

      Black Panther (Legend of Drizzt Board Game - Guenhwyvar)

       
      And finally we have the Black Panther.
       
      Fun Fact:
      Did you know that there is no such animal as a Black Panther?  It is just a nickname for melanistic variants of any Panthera species, specifically Leopards and Jaguars.
       
      This model is from The Legend of Drizzt Board Game by Wizards of the Coast.  I have not read a single Drizzt Do'Urden book, but I believe the black panther, Guenhwyvar, is the ranger's companion animal.  Anyways, that was influence enough to paint her up in that style.  I believe I used mostly Black Jaguars as inspiration, though the markings became less important than getting the highlight colors right.  I ended up using Reaper's Dark Elf Skin colors to highlight the black, which is amusing considering Drizzt's race.  I added some mottled spotting afterwards, trying to imply the pattern more than paint each individual spot.  I think I managed to imply muscle, fur, and spots without losing the dark shade of black I wanted.  Pretty happy, especially since this sculpt was my least favorite of the bunch.

      How's it going everyone?  Got a handful of baddies to show off today.  Painted these a few months ago and still pretty proud of them.  They're a mix of the Brigands from the Bones 4 Core, and the Bandits from Bones 3: Stoneskull Expansion.

      Painted them up to match.  They'll work great as bandits, thugs, mercenaries, or militia men.  Very versatile figures.  They were also a great opportunity for me to practice my face-work.
       
      Brigands (3) 77707

      I'm assuming the upcoming bones "Brigands" are in fact these three.  Lovely little models.  I'm a big fan of the slightly chunkier bones models that have been coming out lately.  They tend to have larger surface areas and better-defined edges.  They also tend to have less clutter.  This makes for an easier, cleaner paint job in my opinion.
      More Photos below the Spoiler:
       
      Bandits 77507,77508,77509,77510

      These four are from the Bones 3 Stoneskull Expansion.  I've had them sitting around for awhile, but decided to paint them up with the Brigands.  They have similar enough designs to fit together.  In general, I like their design less, but once I painted them up that didn't matter.  Perfectly serviceable mooks!
      More Photos beneath the Spoiler:
       
      Who's your favorite of the bunch?  I'm partial to the Executioner myself, with the Bandit Bully taking a close second.
