03518: Dead Man's Chest

Recommended Posts

Started on this piece while I am planing a new diorama. Now that I'm looking at it, the bandanna is the same color as the crabs. I think I will change that.

you may want to change the crabs.  Generally they only look red when cooked. :unsure:

 

A shade of darkened grey/green would indicate healthy bottom feeders!

I'd leave the bandanna (or add stripes) and darken up the crab bodies:

These guys were a lot of fun in Cuba.  I'm not even sure if they can swim.  This one's a bit more orange than I remember.  One of their common names is "Zombie crab", but you'll get more hits with "Carribbean land crab" or Gecarcinus ruricola.

Went with the suggestion of kitchen_wolf.

The skeleton with the green shirt either has a full head of hear or some kind of hat on. I could not figure it out  :rock:

 

I am reasonable happy with it and call it done.

      I did this one a while ago. My first attempt to recreate the painted version on the packaging. I'm just missing the foliage. This was super fun! :D

      Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. 

      Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form their own unit. Behind her is Rotpatch, and the scarecrow is hanging out with these guys until I can get a couple more. The constructs are filling the slot of core infantry.

      Here is a Ral Partha Witch leading the Pumpkin Knight heavy infantry consisting of the Halloween Knight and converted Barrow Wardens. 

      Willow Greenivy leading the skeletal Pumpkin Guard. 10 newer GW skeletions and a variety of Reaper Bones. 

      Elise with the Pumpkin Chucker and some Bones skeletal archers providing ranged support.

      A female Necromancer and the Etherial Legion of ghosts and wraiths. 

      An Iconic Witch, Pumpkin Spider, and friends.

      A converted Brettonian Sorceress with the skeletal heavy infantry. Basically, what happens when adventurers irritate the witches.

      Bats, wolves, and allied vampires. 

      Another vampire and werewolf allies.

      Zombies, ghouls, and another Reaper Witch. 

      Beastmen and hell hounds with an infernalist witch.

      Presenting the Rotten Mummy, as the name suggests he's a Mummy that's going rotten, and he's part of the Egyptian faction for the game Twisted by Demented Games.
       
      It's a really fun to paint mini that is annoying hard to photograph, but I think I did a decent job on him.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      For my Shifting Sands Project I wanted a Casket of Souls / Altar of the Damned.
       
      I scratchbuilt the altar from foam with the help of a Greenstuffworld rollerpin I gave it an Egyptian look.
       
      The bones/skulls are from the Greenstuffworld Crunchplates
       
      Then I added:
