Anybody know what this thing is?

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

I recently finished this one that had been standing around on the shelf of shame for ages.

But I do not for the life of me remember what it is.

Does anybody recognize this miniature?


I suspect it might be something from the early 2000s Wizards of the Coast D&D metal miiniatures line, it is made of hard, slightly yellow metal. It might maybe be something Cthulthuish, I don´t think it is a RAFM one though.

I believe that is one of the Mage Knight metal figures made by Ral Partha. Same sculpt as the bendy plastic/vinyl MK figures, made by RP so folks could paint their own.

 

ETA--It's called crypt worm or something like that, I think.

Yep that's a Mage Knight Crypt Worm.  They had a short lived metal figure line in addition to their plastics. 

 

I've used those Crypt Worms in a lot of games.  Players really hate seeing them hit the table.  :devil:

I don't much blame them...

Those things are really nasty.  I had one I repainted to look like a Chaos Spawn.  It was usually pretty popular as nobody could tell what it was after the repaint.

All I can say... It looks nasty enough that few adventuring parties would welcome its appearance!

I kinda want a couple now so I can repaint them.  These could be as versitile as the Great Worms!

Thank you all for clearing that up!

I think I might have another that also is mage knight metal. I thought it was a D&D mini, but something tells me its mage knight. Anybody know the following?

Mage Knight Wood Golem.

Yerp. I have one of these in plastic, not a bad tabletop paint job. Gets the job done, at least.

 

...which is more than I can say about some of their humans and dwarves. :huh:

Indeed it is. I've got one or two of 'em myself, although I haven't done anything with them.

 

Nice work!

      I was excited to be at Reapercon this year.  There was so much I learned! One thing was shading to make figures more realistic. This was the figure I used to learn on. The only thing is,  I wish I knew what figure it is - name and number. I'm trying to keep a log of colors used for figures. Anyway,  I'm going to work on this next when I finish Benedikt

      This grouping is a little eclectic because I was experimenting with a new medium. 
       
      While I was at Reapercon, James Wapple introduced me to the joys of using oils to help me work on my tabletop minis and my blending.  When I got home I found I had everything lying around except for some quality thinner so I got some of that, sat down and gave it a try.  He has a number of YouTube videos describing the technique better than I ever could but it basically uses the fact that oils have an exceptionally long drying time to allow for some really nice wet blending without developing chalkyness or the layer steps I always get in dry blending.  The oils being a heavier body also seems to help me give the mini a fur effect of different hairs across the body
       
      What I found was a new method, for me, that should help me clear a lot of army minis and take them from primed to done and looking good in a very short period of time.  First thing I tried wss a whitehorm stag that I had sitting next to my desk when I got home.  It was by wizkids and pre primed so easy pickens
       

      including setup that was about 40 minutes work and my first try.  Next up wss a hippogryph which has been haunting my shelf of shame for 4 years now because I could never get the horse part right

      While not as good on the feathers (feathers aren't easy for me and these are barely scored enough to show detail) I finally got some results on the horsey part that I actually liked:  nice warm red tones and highlights that don't look painted on. The chest feathers in was also able to get some highlights into that don look drybrushed.  And again, this was another 40 minutes or so.
       
      Finally I decided to try some rats that I needed for a (hopefully) upcoming Rangers of Shadow's Deep campaign.  Since the method Scott showed me uses #6 and #8 brushes I was curious how it would work on Such a small mini.  I think it did very well, again giving me noce highlights  in the fur without looking drybrushed and without taking a huge amount of time (30 minutes for the lot)

      Not too bad for my first few tries.  I especially like how the greys and browns turned out but even the white rats have some character.
       
      I am certainly going to give it some more time and minis, both for animals and a huge group of Wrath of Kings minis that have languished in the back of my shelves for years.  Hope you like what you see.  They are my first trys and I really like the results

      I got this mini from a forum trade or lot purchase some time ago. I do not know who made it or any details about it.
       
      It is made in white metal, came in two parts with body and the head and came with an unmarked tab to go in a slottabase.
       
      I tried using my Google-Fu, but all I found was a couple posts stating this is a Chainmail miniature, from the short-lived Wizards of the Coast miniatures line from the turn of the century.
       
      However, I do not think it is a Chainmail mini, as I do not remember seeing such a mini in that line at that time, it does not appear on any Chainmail listings and does not have any markings on the tab like Chainmail minis have. Also, I think they were a bit more finely detailed in general.
       
       
       
           
       
      I put it on a 30mm base

      So I painted this big guy up. I don't know who manufactured him or what he's made of because he was given to me by a friend. It's a heavy fig and it might be lead. If anyone has any idea what this is or who manufactured it, please let me know!
       
      I went with a classic green lizard man colour scheme. I added a pic with a regular sized min for scale. I believe he's a bones mercenary?

      My friend found this dwarf, he thinks he got it around 2006, about eleven years ago:
