Not sure I have posted any of my recent Minis anywhere ( if I did please excuse my forgetfulness). Recently I decided to work my way through one of my mini games. The infamous Super Dungeon Explore. I know a lot of people are not too fond of ninja devision due to various Kickstarters not being delivered ( I personally am in for Relic Knights: 2nd edition ) but I felt like I should paint them anyway. This is a big project for me since I'm a real slow poke and I would like to invite you along the (hopefully not too painful) way. Grab your rations and a duvet because you are in for a long one.
I dislike repeat paint jobs which exactly why I started with the unique models, procastinating on the stuff I like least the longest (what could possibly go wrong). I try to stick as closely as possible to the original colour schemes.
First one up. A tree.
So I really like board games with cool minis. Two of the board games that Iâ€™ve spent the most time playing are Kingdom Death: Monster and Super Dungeon Explore! Both are great games with fantastic minis- although the tones each use could hardly be farther apart.
The developers of these games know each other, and When both games went to Kickstarter, they took the opportunity to do a cool cross over. So means that we got a really cute chibi of the Twilight Knight.
She makes a great mini, and Iâ€™d have been happy to leave it off there, but the fluff on her card implies that if those super cute Super Dungeon characters go into the Nether Rift in their seting, they end up in the brutal and bloody hell world of Kingdom Death.
So I got to thinking about this, and decided that I really needed to expand on this idea of the cute little chibis on the Planes of Faces.
Yes, these are all playable, and I'm going to continue to create Chibi versions of Kingdom Death monsters.
I haven't posted anything in a while now, but I have been painting quite a bit. Unfortunately I just haven't been able to get good pictures lately. I think it might be because I finished my hobby room now take pictures downstairs in the basement with less natural light. Sadly It means I had to abandon my dungeon setting for pictures and go to regular photo back grounds, But at least I now have a set up that works for taking pictures now. So I'll be playing catch up for little while with posting some things I've gotten done lately.
So With out further ado, this was my Gencon MHE contest entry for this year, a Noh Empire squad. I actually got a bronze this year even though my group base was still really rough. I was super happy about that
Bronze! Like I said my group base was really rough and unfinished, but I don't think it counted against me since it was sort of optional anyway.
Marikan To was my first major attempt at lining. Mostly on her wraps and on her quiver. I think her skin needed more highlighting but I'm not really sure how to highlight smooth skin yet.
The Beastmaster I think turned out pretty good. I was very happy with the faces on his armor. His skin looks like it could use a touch more shade, but otherwise I'm happy.
The Hounds of Nozuki were a bit tricky since their fur had no detail I had to try and figure out how to make it look interesting (I had the same issue with Marikan To's hair). I think they turned out ok. I was getting a little burned out on the bases by the time I got to these guys.
Marikan To's bird companion. His base took the longest and he was just about the last figure I finished since I wasn't entirely sure how and where I wanted his coloration.
Thanks for looking. Let me no if you have any comments, critiques or advice for next time. I'll post some other stuff I've finished tomorrow.
When Super Dungeon Explore first hit the scene, I almost immediately wanted to start making characters from some of my favorite 16 bit JRPGs.
For some reason, my favorite characters in Final Fantasy 6 were always the least central ones, but the chances that Sodapop were going to make a suitable Mog or Umaro mini was pretty low. So, when I saw that a local Blood Bowl commissioner had some Big Foot Minis for sale, I had to jump at the chance to make an Umaro. I only had to adjust the hair a little and it was perfect.
For Mog, I started out with a Giri creep from the Super Dungeon Goro set (I ended up with lots of extra Giri after the Forgotten King Kickstarter.
Anyway, here they are:
This was an old Soda Pop miniature that I think I received as a promo. It's been setting in a box for 10+ years as one of those models that was waiting for me to be "good enough". He was a blast to paint, and I was kind of amazed at how well flesh tones worked for hair color. Entry three of four at ReaperCon.
