A Couple of CAVs

Recommended Posts

I like them both for different reasons.  The Blitz feels like larger, Soviet walking armor.  The Mantis has a bright, "I don't care that you saw me, you're toast anyways" feel to it.

      So these are a couple of "mantis warriors" which I'm painting up as thri-kreen, the insectoid race from the Dark Sun and Spelljammer D&D settings.  They are Reaper's 03552: Klichik, Mantis Warrior (the taller one), sculpted by John Winter, and 03142: Zizzix, Mantis Warrior (the squatter one), sculpted by Michael Brower.
       
      Here they are for scale (and unassembled) with Reaper's 03155: Vandora Waverunner, Pirate, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

       
      Straight out of the package they have a very flat silhouette.

       
      Here they are assembled, primed, and washed with thinned-down Burnt Umber.  I gently bent some of their limbs forward to ease the flatness a tad.

       

       
      One source said all thri-kreen were golden brown; another said they were earthy shades of red, yellow, and sometimes green.  I decided to paint the taller one red and the shorter one yellow.
       
      I mixed some dull, opaque colors using Iron Oxide Red and Yellow, each mixed with a greying-down blend of browns and white, and brushed them on thinly.
       
      As god is my witness, this thing is not so pink in real life.

       
      I painted this same yellow on both of the creatures' bases.

       
      Then I washed over them with some thinned-down Burnt Umber.
       

       

       
      To be continued!

      After over a year of sitting on my painting table, I was finally able to finish this guy up last night. He'll see some game time at some point or I may through him up on Ebay and see if anyone wants him. 
      I wanted to use some brighter colors on this guy. The colors go from Leaf Green-Green Ilse-Blue-Purple. I glazed in the darker green, the blue, and the purple, then highlighted up to where I wanted it. Simple browns for the leather and wood and black for the harness, eyes, and antennae. Thanks for looking!
