Crocostimpy! Sebeki Master of Words (WGE-145) from Crocodile Games

Recommended Posts

I was casting about for what to paint next on the video series. The first episode of the new series was up a while ago. I had a battle royale with a smaller pile from my large mountain of minis. They went one-on-one with dice rolls deciding who would continue and who would go back into the drawer. Video is linked below.

So Sebeki won, from Crocodile Games' Wargods line. Or, Master of Words won. Little alligator guy. Wizard maybe? I dunno, I don't play the game. My train of thought is definitely not in a straight line, and it did go around a bend too fast and jumped the tracks. He's going to become a crocostimpy.
 
Yes, yes. He's an alligator not a crocodile. The voices in my head demand a crocostimpy, and so that's how he's going to be painted up. I don't get to that point in the video below, as the WIP picture shows. Just getting around doing the basic stuff I do on a metal mini: flash trim, wire brush cleanup, mounting, and then a prime job. I don't expect those who are old-hat with that to watch. The fun begins in Episode 3.

EDIT: Hmm... some strange reason I'm not able to embed the videos. Eh. Links it be.

EDIT2: Okay, never mind. Some reason, the "share" link on YouTube doesn't become a video while the full URL does. Not sure how I didn't stumble into that prior to this.

A Master of Words is a spellcaster although based on the fluff I would probably equate them to clerics rather than wizards although that can vary by faction. Since he is a Sebeki, he is definitely a crocodile and not an alligator!

Hmm. His snout seemed very narrow for a crocodile, which was what led me to believe that. But looking it up, I apparently got the shape mixed up between the two. Thanks!

Cool.  I don't play the game either, but I've been buying the figures since before there was a rulebook for them. I look forward to seeing how this gets painted.

Been working on the CrocoStimpy, and even have had the video up for a few days, but I've been too busy and too lazy to make an update. So many other diversions to sap my time.

One thing I forgot was how stupidly hard it is to get a good red color over black. Oh how I wish I'd remembered that so I could lay down at least a thin layer of white primer. Sheesh! It took a long time to get it to the point where I'm happy with it.

The colors are a bit harsh right now against the brown background. I might switch to a light grey to see if that helps. And the video is linked below.

Finally got my act together and got some work done to post up. Pretty standard base coating so far for the stomach and nose. Happily, the nose covered better than I had hoped and I won't have to do a multitude of layers.

Was sick last week and posted the video but didn't advertise it. Then really didn't feel up to much, so a short video this week. But his head is nearly finished!

Wow. A month? That's been a lot of whole weeks filled with Mondays. Trust me.

 

I actually have been working on this, but the sessions have been far and in-between. Worked up the cape, some scarf/lapel thing, and some hieroglyphics. That last item is the fail.

Getting a little bit more done on the Crocostimpy. The image has his lapel painted and lettered (hieroglyphed?) and I painted the rolled up paper to look a bit like a newspaper in homage to Ren. The video shows all this, while the picture was taken just before I started on this evening's recording.

Shoot. Last week's video was posted, well, last week. Hectic. Anyway, I painted the things I think should be jade stones. Yeah.

And I finally managed to get Crocostimpy to a decent table top standard. I haven't attached nor finished the base, as I'm planning at some point to go back over him to do some shading, extra highlights, and bring him up a bit in detail. But that'll have to wait, and won't be put up as a series.

Pictures first, then the ending video!

      Here is the famous scene from Hamlet, reenacted by a vulture.
       
      Painting it was a bit weird: I started with a completely different color scheme in mind (cool whites, blues, gold), but somehow the mini wouldn't let me and I ended up with this version. I am happy with it, though.
       
      I am here to learn, so c&c is very welcome! Especially the second c!
      Enjoy!
       
      (Sorry for the picture quality, I don't have access to a good camera right now, is's just my phone).

      Hi all,
      just finished this one last night, hope you enjoy! Another really nice figure from Chris Fitzpatrick and his company Crocodile Games.  This was from their most recent Kickstarter if I'm not mistaken.
       
      Thanks for looking!

      So here is my rendition of a figure from Crocodile Games, Hecate sculpted by Chris Fitzpatrick.  She's a bit bare chested, so you can see a shot of her front here:

      and here is her view from behind:

      So just finished this one up last night, Artemis from the most recent Kickstarter of Crocodile Games, sculpted by Chris FitzPatrick.   Not adding any pictures from behind as don't want to violate any policies on unclothedness, hopefully the pictures I chose were all right. 
       
      So really enjoyed painting this one up, as there was very little metal I had to worry about.  Actually the most difficult or time consuming part on this one was the straps on her sandals and then the design on her cloak which was not freehand but actually sculpted on to the cloak. Overall very nice figure I think to paint and it's a nice larger scale, so the face and eyes were pretty easy to work on. 
       
      Enjoy!
