Babbler sculpt

Recommended Posts

The original FF has always been amongst my most prized possessions.

yup. to me it is D&D.

 

when i was a youth i inherited the beginnings of my gaming collection from a cousin who went off to war. it was an eclectic bunch of books and a mix of editions. I had no Monster Manual but i had the Fiend Folio and MMII (volumes some consider to be the worst of the worst). because of this my dungeons were populated by oddities. they had no orcs, no goblins, no ogres and dragons but instead they had babblers and bone snappers and volts and flumphs and froghemoths. i had no idea who orcus was, but Cryonax was a thing of terror. to this day i find that my grasp of fantasy tropes is a bit more...unconventional than the mainstream.

Yes. More FF. While I did have the original MM, my group leaned heavy on the FF and MM2 because they were so much more interesting.

 

Great execution and progression of the concept!

Excellent. The FF has always been my favourite AD&D monster book.

 

I love seeing people's greens; it underlines the fact that all these miniatures were actually designed and made by human beings with clever fingers.

Looks great, if maybe on the smaller side of large. But I'm sure CSM is tired of sculpts coming in oversized from other sculptors.

 

Keep the greens coming! Good to see them and it lets us know someone is getting paid, cause production greens is good work if one can get it.

Awesome sculpt! And seeing the Fiend Folio pic brought back some childhood memories - wasn't there another picture of this guy eating some unfortunate victim whole? Wish I still had that book.

yeah, it is definitely on the smaller side of "large." this was a compromise because the figure was listed as "medium" in the kickstarter. i did my best to work within the given description, though - if fully upright he would easily be the equivalent of 8' tall, as listed in the TOH and bulky enough to weigh 700lbs. it is worth noting that he is mounted on a 30mm base and would fit comfortably on a 40mm base.

will do! it is decent part time work and it keeps me busy. I don't command the prices that the big names do and i'm not nearly as efficient, so for now it is a way for me to  help with the occasional bill and give me a little play money for the family hobbies ( minis, paint and yarn ::): ).

I love the pattern on his skin.

 

Keep showing those greens, I love seeing these minis.

 

And yes, I would like to paint that.

      Hi guys, so just because I love touching everything haha and to cut a bit form painting ( though almost finish with the reaper beast champion paint :)...)..I started to mess with clay stuff ..quite fun actually haha.
       
      I have no idea how this will end up anyway and that's ok for me to fail , that's just for practice and such and get a feel for it.
      I started trying to do some kind of carnivore plant things ( also looking at a thread here  for a step octopus like sculpt so just trying to avoid the "anatomy" things for now..)
       
      I may have some trouble with lower jaw..did nothing to support it but hmm will see xD..

      This question sounds pretty stupid, but I don't know how.

      I've had these little buggers in my collection for a long time now, and I had an occasion to paint them up. 
       
      However, when I actually looked at them closely, I discovered that these were both the worst incidents of mold slippage I've ever seen, and also hideous sculpts. They're cute, but hot-broccoli these are not Reaper's best. They're asymmetric: ridges of scales existing on one side that aren't on the other, the eyes are completely different on either side of the head, the back ridge is either a victim of mold slippage or badly planned (I think both). Different regions are often poorly defined. The mold slippage ran all the way down the center of Cheeto, at least a full millimeter slip - seen mostly on his tail, back ridge, and the base. His face was less effected, thank goodness. I think the tail may have had more than a millimeter. I attempted to file some, gloss-resin-blob other parts, and hide it with paint or grass tufts. Mountain Dew was bad, but not as bad. Except for Mountain Dew's wings, these are one piece - reaching the bellies and insides of their legs with a brush is miserable. They needed to be a single piece. 
       
      And.... then I took a challenge. I decided to use a limited palette on these guys. I am unofficially dubbing this style "mostly monochrome". It isn't just X-Color + White (or Black & White), but a spectrum of paint within a hue, and potentially a little bit of flair (see the eyes). I did blue well.... so I went with other colors on these guys. Some parts veer a bit reddish, or blueish.... but that's okay. I'll refine the style on another figure. But geebus did I miss using purple and blue to shade!!! 
       
      Cheeto is orange. I gave him mostly green eyes to match Mountain Dew, and then tried to keep him orange. Limited palette listed... 
      Eyes: Linen White, Peacock Green, Marigold Yellow, Coal Black, Pure White, Vallejo Game Color Green Ink. 
      Dragon: Pure White, Linen White, Marigold Yellow, Sunrise Orange (Base), Orange Brown, Rust Brown, Blackened Brown. 
      Base: Pale Olive, Muddy Olive. 
       
      Oranges have hideous coverage. Even the HD Sunrise Orange. ACK! That was.... painful. 
       
      Okay, Mountain Dew, the green sibling. Some of the greens have poor coverage, but not all. 
      Eyes: Linen White, Marigold Yellow, Dragon White, Viper Green, Peacock Green, Coal Black, S75 Tiamat Orange. 
      Dragon: Dragon White, Linen White, Maggot White, Cat's Eye Green, Viper Green, Brilliant Green, Peacock Green, Coal Black.
      Mouth (hard to make look good in greens, I thought): Gothic Crimson, The Army Painter Mutant Hue. 
      Base: The Army Painter Army Green, Reaper Shadow Green, Linen White, S75 Intense Wood. 
       
      Alright, so the results of my Mostly Monochrome experiments on bad sculpts/bad molds.....

      Hey guys! Sorry I haven't stayed active here. It is something I want to be more consistent about. 
       
      I sculpted this lethargic little sloth in my spare time over the last few months. I'm pretty happy with how he came out and learned a lot of new things along the way. There's also some of the in progress pics and the original concept art. Critiques and feedback always welcome!
       
       
      He's still in need of a name, any ideas? 
      Thanks for taking a look!

      (PS: the rabbit is still a WIP)
