Myconid Cephalopod :: Ten-Foot Mushroom Monster

Recommended Posts

Here it is the finished ten-foot-tall Myconid Cephalopod. This strange critter lies in wait luring unsuspecting underground miners or adventurers close with its seemingly harmless glowing cap and then using both of its ten-foot-long tentacles it will rend you in half.

 

Wish I had lighting to make give this an underground look but here are the shots.

 

These are pre-Dullcote pics. I sealed the cap except for the spots to make it a little off. I also sealed the stalagmite and growths its perched on so it looks wet. Once I Dullcote it, I will likely add a bit of gloss varnish back to those areas.

 

As always comments are appreciated. If you see something I might have done differently or something I might improve with a different technique, please let me know. Please include links to videos and/or tutorials.

 

Thank you for checking this out.

From below the cap (slightly):

If you want to use this idea in your campaign simply use the stats for a Roper and describe it like above. The players will never know what hit them. And then from here on out Mushrooms of any size will make them paranoid ... without eating them.

Killer shroom. The texture and painting on the cave rock is very well done.

 

Thanks. Check the WIP ... it's just sand, glue and paint. ::D:

 

Unless you mean the tentacle "scale" pattern ... that's my pin vise handle.

      So, I recently purchased the "Nolzur's Marvelous Pigments Monsters Paint Set". Came with a bunch of Army Painter washes and paints and yadda yadda yadda...
       
      But it also came with this neat Owlbear mini, which is what I have to share with you guys today!
       
      First eyes I ever successfully painted. But in my defense, I'd only ever tried on minis with smallish eyes, which was NOT the brightest idea I'd ever had. The left eye turned out really good in my opinion, but the right one was a bit messy.
       
      I also need to do so me touch-up work on the base. I got a bit careless with the wash, and uh... Yeeeeah.
       
      Lastly and leastly, I didn't upload an outdoor picture as I usually do. That'll probably come later, provided I don't forget.

      Matthias the Twisted was insanely fun to paint, he's definitely  one of my favorite undead models, and one of Bobby Jackson's more eerie characters. 
      Despite it being the bane to Castlevania fans everywhere, i took inspiration for the hunter from Simon off of the cover of the Castlevania 2 box art. What a game haha. Sorry for the pictures being a bit blurry, but C&C is surely appreciated.

      Here I will paint the inhabitants of the world beneath us.
      You will find Drow, Myconids, Beholders and all sorts of cave dwelling creatures here.
      I might also try my hand at some terrain or buildings.
       
      Some stuff that awaits painting:

      Here is the cyclops from the Bones 4 Cave Dwellers stretch goal. This a really nice figure and casting. I've been committed to working through by core set and I'm still only about 25% in. Man do you get a lot of figures in that KS!

      This colour scheme was also inspired by artwork found on Pinterest. I finished this in a day working on it along side my griffon.
