A strong woman out hunting down an arachnidian dinner for her loved ones home in the cave; I love it! Great work!

I really like the composition of this piece. Your use of space having the spider crawl up the side of the plinth is excellent. Way to break the 4th wall!

FANTASTIC! She is even LOVELIER that I had imagined...considering my imagination that is saying something. Your brushwork & use of colors is OUTSTANDING; you just keep getting better with each new creation. The base is WONDROUS to behold; it perfectly sets the scene. INCREDIBLY WELL DONE!

Shes got a good weapon for squashin' spiders.

 

Can you imagine the amount of goo that would come flying out of that spider if one squished it?  Now THAT would make a great dio.

Thank you Limey!

Thank you so much. I'm still new to dio's and am hoping one day to improve enough so my work doesn't scream "amateur".

You know how long I worked on this thing dahlink and the amount of frustration I experienced along the way.  I'm just glad the thing is off my painting table at last.

 

 

::o: Wow, just ::o:

 

Thank you!

Wonderful job on this one Anne! I always love the way you use colors on all your figures, this is no exception. I also really enjoy the scene you put forth in this vignette, so cool.

I had a heckuva time with those little cords holding her club together.

 

Hellacious base work! Beautiful piece.

Love this! Especially that the spider is crawling up the base. That's great placement, it keeps the diorama from looking cluttered and busy. Wow!

      So I've been poking at this diorama idea for a couple of years, and it's morphed a bit since I first started it, but I'm thinking that I'm nearing the final composition. But... I'm beginning to second guess myself. 
       
      So, do you think this tells a good/clear story? 
      Should I remove the adventurers from their bases, or paint the bases to match the floor? 
       
      Any and all thoughts welcome!

      On the good advice of @paintybeard and @lexomatic I took the plunge and got the Villains 3 set from Crooked Dice. It contains a Cold-War era cycloptic Squid Man Agent as well as a mad biologist (see elsewhere). And you never know when a violent young lady will come in handy, so I also got one of their Savage Schoolgirls with hockey sticks. I've done better faces and skin, but I'm pretty pleased with the tattered stockings and skirt.

      Whatever this squidfella is asking, Miss Blunt-Instrument is having none of it. 


      Here's a turnaround just for the squid-man


      and here's one for the savage Sixth Former. I should put some blood spatter on that stick and shirt!

      I've coveted this sculpt for years but couldn't justify it until very recently. BUT! Just before this past Free RPG Day, indie game designer Emmy Allen released a game called Deep Morphean Transmissions. The PCs are told they are espionage and counterintel agents infiltrating various levels of the collective unconsious. Not all of their given information is reliable. It is fun mystery solving times. Think Delta Green crossed with Dreamlands Call of Cthulhu with a dash of Paranoia, but much more rules-light.

      Anyway, one faction in said game is the Squid-Men from Ib.
      From the (public-domain) text:

      "Picture an octopus or cuttlefish, its bag-like body protruding from the collar of a smart evening suit, eyes and beak lopsided as they peer at you, tentacles extending within the clothing to simulate limbs and hands. Its limbs bend wrong, its movements are too fluid, it squirms and flows as it moves. From the inside-pocket of its jacket, with alien deftness, it withdraws a black steel revolver.

      ...You’d be surprised how often the locals will ignore the fact that the person they’re talking to is a seven-foot-tall octopus."

      It was too perfect. For the color scheme, I went with the one used on my Edofleini ( https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86756-spacefuture-bombshells-edofleini-brain-squids-from-space/ ) and the most forgettable grey G-man suit possible. The midcentury fedora is an eyelet judiciously mutilated with pliers.

      Patrick Keith really knocked this one out of the park with its pulpy polypous menace. I need to get another to paint in a lab coat and brown suit. And I need to play some more Deep Morphean Transmissions. We ALL should. That is me, Rigel, recommending it of my own free will. Not an octopoid doppelganger trying to spread a memetic paradigm rendering the mammalian brain less hack-resistant. In fact, I'm under no outside influence at all, mental or otherwise, because Squid Men are definitely fictional and always have been, and ontological weapons are banned also purely fictitious. As well you know, citizen.

      Last couple of weeks have kept me busy, but I'm back! (Briefly.)
      60191 is a gorgeous, gracile sculpt by Derek Schubert. A Pathfinder mini, but much more "clean" and less "busy" than many others. Crisp and elegant detail. 
      I love making coral colors from oranges and whites, so her kimono is an orange-to-white-peach gradient. A passerby suggested the contrasting green of the bow and hair wrap (ArmyPainter Kraken Skin). 

      The cherry blossom motifs on the kimono are Rhinox Hide and matte white; on the fans, they are Rich Espresso metallic dark bronze and Runefang Steel silver.

      This isn't my best work, but it easily cracks the top ten IMO. Took two sessions so far. I'll probably fiddle more with the details of shading and tassels/beads later, but I'm eager to post something. 




      More pics with very slight variations below. Sorry for the poor lighting; sun went down while I was making the Shinto arch.

      Miskatonic's most intrepid researchers go to the ends of the earth for their research projects--and some ends are more terminal than others! 
      Here's Reaper's Antarctic Explorer, 80072. (Though I'm sure he could work as an Arctic explorer, too, in a pinch.) Bearded, bespectacled, and well-insulated, this guy is perfect for the Pabodie Expedition. The barrel of his rifle was unfixably bendy, so I replaced it with a portion of straight-pin. Used the same color scheme as my Zeppelin crew. 

      I've said it before and I'll say it again: the Arctic ice holds Santa's Workshop and Captain America. The Antarctic ice holds shoggoths and the THING. Don't go digging in Antarctica.

      "The sun never sets in January this far south, but my chronometer indicated I had been hiking for eighteen hours. In all that time, I could see no man or beast, but the persistent cries of "Tekeli- li! Tekeli-li!" sounded bleatingly in my ears."


      "The monolith must have been in this valley for uncounted ages, exposed to sub-freezing temperatures since the advent of the glaciers, yet it was warm to the touch. No snow stayed on it."


      "Day 6 in frozen hell. The katabatic storms have reduced visibility to all but nil. Have concluded Man has no place in interior of this blasted continent, here at the bottom of the world."
