You know, I'm still not entirely happy with the beast mistress model. It just misses the mark for me. Which is odd, for a Privateer Press model.

 

Nice job on the paints, and I like your Wright Bros.

 

P.S.: I've never managed to squeeze 5 Forsaken in a pAby theme force. 4 seems to be about my limit. I have 5, but one always just ends up on the sidelines. Her theme force is pretty stout, but Legion beasts are pretty fragile. Good luck.

Glad you like the Harriers, thanks!

 

We'll have to agree to disagree re: the Beast Mistress. I don't know if she looks like what I would design for the fluff concept, but I do love the way she looks. As for 5 Forsaken...the second one hasn't been purchased yet, so painting a fifth is a ways away. Still, I know my friend who plays Skorne would like to do a few 75-pt games eventually. I think a 75 pt pAbsy T4 list would be pretty terrifying! Fragile, though, you're right about that.

It's especially terrifying with both Proteus and Typhon in it.

Wow, cool color scheme and nice paint jobs ta boot.

Harrier is one of the few models I don't own yet for everblight, but with a pot painted soon I may want that option.

Forsaken - is it just me or is this one of the worst looking models Privateer has to offer? I hate it ever more that it is so useful to Everblight. So unbelievably undynamic. I always see a woman coming out of the shower trying to cover herself up with a towel.

Beast Mistress: One of the best paint jobs I have seen on her so far. I have one primed and ready to go, but not sure when I will be able to get to her with 6 lesser pokers and a pot to work on this month.

Hey Mutilatedlips, thanks for the comments.

 

I really recommend the Harriers. They were loads of fun to paint, and they kill pesky solos like nobody's business. I've really enjoyed them each time I've fielded them.

 

Yeah, I doubt I'll paint another forsaken without some heavy mods. It's one instance where I appreciate the PrivPress penchant for overcomplicating assembly. That mini is four separate pieces, which is completely insane for so simple a model, but it will make mods a little easier. I have the same thought about a woman covering herself with a towel, and it seems a bit silly to me.

 

Glad you like the Beast Mistress. She was a nice break from painting beasties.

 

Good luck with the pasta pot! It's on my list, but I want to finish up some of my half-started pieces first.

      "This is a board game version of the classic skirmish game and aims to give the same feeling as the original, while making it more accessible and “ready to pick and play”. Choose your agenda between the Protectors and the Destroyers, lead your units into the city and hunt down your opponent, wreaking havoc in all that stand in your way!"
       
      MonPoc's been through two versions. First, a prepainted collectile mini's game, then a metal one. This unpainted plastic KS is compatible with the second version. The pitch is that it's less expensive than the metal version (and there's no blind purchasing), but it's still gonna be expensive, especially if you go all-in. You play with only two monsters per game, so, imo, the core set and SG's should keep most casual players satisfied. Although the game has multiple factions, you can play the "good" ones together, and the "bad" ones together. Core game is for two players (1v1, solo, coop). Battle Royale is for 3-4 players, and adds Apex monsters as enemies for coop, or bigger monsters for regular play. With this being day three, one dual-faction add-on has been revealed.
       
      Game rules are based on the existing Privateer Press Monster Apocalypse v.2 rules. KS is run by Mythic Games. (Better than the reverse, imo!) I assume plastics are made in China, which has had some economic instability, energy shortages, supply chain issues, and shipping issues. The game won't be delivered for at least a year, so obviously today's shipping issues may not affect delivery. But, speaking of shipping, the core box *is* large, and shipping starts at $35. I'd expect to pay more.
       
      Other kaiju boardgames exist, including an officially licensed Godzilla one. Mythic has not said if this game will be available retail. I wouldn't be surprised if the discounts expected by distributors make this and other high-end KS games difficult for retail. Also, the high MSRP may keep FLGS customers from picking up the game (much easier to sell $150 of Magic cards than a $150 boardgame, imo).

      Three days into the campaign, and they've unlocked about half as many monsters as in the core box!

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 



       
       
      One down and thousands to go! 😀

      I've got a bunch of amphibious friends to share with you all today!
       

       
      While in search of some suitable tribal-inspired Bullywug for my ongoing nautical campaign project, I stumbled upon these Croak Raiders from Privateer Press's Hordes.  these metal frogs perfectly balanced the jungle, tribal tree-frog look I wanted with the bulbous look of Bullywugs as opposed to the more nimble Grung who are often stylized as Poison Dart Frogs.  I absolutely fell in love with these frogs and their giant necks.  I was gifted a set during the holidays and quickly ordered Underchief Mire to stand in as the wannabe King of my Bullywug society.
       
      I used these frogs as a chance to get used to my airbrush and try out some other speed painting methods, but really struggled with the slog of painting of painting so many similar things.Especially picking out each knot on the ridiculous amount of rope these guys wear.  You can read a bit about my painting process, especially on my first test model, on this WIP thread HERE.
       
      For now, let's take a closer look at the finished frogs:
       
      Bullywug Throwers

       
      First up are these pot-throwing Bullywug.  The center one with the blue feathers was my test model.  Spent some time working out different techniques and color choices on him.  Ended up changing a few things to help the leather loin cloth stand out from the rope, but I largely got it right the first time.
       
      In the close ups below you can see a better view of the quiver which became a bane of my existence during this project.  All of the frogs, except for the chief, came with these matching quivers.  I could have left them unattached, but they felt incomplete without them and so I suffered through the arduous task of picking out all of the details on these ten times.

      Bullywug Spearmen

       
      Next up are these warty frogs equipped with spear-launchers (or atlatl for you weapon-experts).  I like that the quivers that these guys wear contain both arrows and pots, making it seem as if all of the frogs have access to either method of fighting.  I particularly enjoyed the turtle shells on these guys, but getting paint into the tight gap between their right arms was hard.

      Bullywug Pyros

       
      These roguish frog-men have stepped it up by igniting their spears.  I had a fun time keeping their faces in shadow by selectively highlighting them.  I also got to play around a bit with OSL.  If I had planned ahead better, I may have tried to paint these up as if they were partially in darkness for a more dramatic OSL look, but I prepped them along with the others for my standard daylight paintjob.  I did try to capture a bit of a warmer glow near the flames and along the right sides of the frogs.  I'm happy enough with it even if it's not super stylized or dramatic.

      Bullywug Torch-Bearer

       
      This angry croaker came as the unit leader in the Croak Raiders box.  I was actually missing him originally, but Privateer Press quickly corrected the issue.  Had a bit of fun painting up his mouth and giving him some perfect little teeth ala' the Bullywug from NADDPOD.  He also got a bit of a glow around the torch.

      Bullywug King

       
      This guy was just too much fun not to pick up.  Grumpy and serious.  I imagine the Bullywug adopted a mock-feudal society after briefly encountering human explorers.  They don't quite understand what it entails besides showering a king with riches in order to be stronger than your enemies.  I really like how this guy turned out.  Especially the gem on his crown and the texture on his stone blade.

      I am normally not one to copy box art, but I really loved the look of these guys on the official art.  I borrowed heavily from those examples, but once I had started working on them, I allowed myself to get more creative.  I really like how the speckling on their bodies turned out, and am pleased that the Red, Yellow, and Blue quivers blend in well enough while still providing an easy visual distinction between individual units.
       
      These were really fun models and I'm very proud of the final results even if it took me a month longer to finish them than I had anticipated.
       
      What do you think?

      Hello all you Reaper people!
       
      So, Bones V will be hopefully arriving in the next few months, and one thing I told myself was that before I got my package, I wanted to finish the smaller Yephima sculpt before the new and larger Yephima shows up at my door.  I really love both versions, and I just wish this Yephima would be available in metal.
       
      I tried painting her already years ago, started even a WIP in the forum, which I'd have to hunt down. My original thought was make her a very, dark dusky color and blonde hair with pinks and oranges, but at one point my inspiration went awry and I stopped painting her probably to be an eternal WIP.  But then a few years later, I got a new copy and this one I did more sky blue and blonde, but it doesn't look as pinkish as I originally had thought.  I also think I made my metals way too blue, but oh well. I actually enjoyed painting this lady to the degree that I could see myself painting her again with a different color scheme. One of the other benefits of Bones is the cost, I can grab a new one quickly for around 7.00, so that's also a nice Bones bonus!
      Anyhoos, here she is:

       
      With such a big model, after taking photos, I can see so many glaring issues, but oh well, not going to let myself worry about it too much and will rather maybe go back and paint her up gain some day, incorporating a few fixes.
