D&D Collector's Series: Purple Worm

Recommended Posts

Very nice!  Much better than the D&D Miniatures one (which is on my shelf of shame waiting on a repaint). 

 

I think the highlighting pattern and the 'horn' segments work really well, almost a cell-shaded look which I like quite a bit.

 

?'s for you:

Is the base a proper size (3" across)?

Why was there a time constraint (using in a game?)?

Is all of the material at the base integral, or were flocking or rocks used to expand it?

Thanks!

 

The base is proper for a huge creature if I recall - it's currently in a case at my local shop, but I'm pretty sure it is the standard 3" diameter.

 

The time constraint was that I bought it late Wednesday night and had it back to the shop finished for the show by Saturday afternoon (my local store does an "Armies on Parade" miniature show every few months, with categories for fantasy and sci-fi figures).  I think I put about 14 hours into it over two days after I got it glued together and primed. 

 

Everything on the base was straight out of the box - I didn't add any green stuff, rocks, or flocking.  The figure was four parts: The base, the body, the head (upper jaw and 5-6 segments of the body), and the lower jaw.  It's all made out of a very solid resin, which made it nice and heavy.

One of these days I'd like to get this one. Nice work. I really like the purples.

This is such a great model. Very nice paint job.

 

I've wanted this beast for years and finally ordered one (couldn't pass up the sale). Between the small Bones 1 purple worm, this huge one, and the enormous Goremaw from Bones 3, we can make a thrilling "worm outbreak" themed adventure.

Oh sure it's a gorgeous paint job done by a talented forumite, but that was painted back in March 2015.

What have they done lately?

:devil:

Wow, I hadn't posted anything here for awhile and suddenly return to find this thing bumped from last year!

 

Thanks all for the kind words.  I actually miss this model - I donated it to a charity raffle last month and it went off to a new home.  Hopefully the worm gets to kill an adventurer or three in the near future.

Funny I like this model but with Reaper coming out with their version with Bones 3 I think I'm set for giant worm models. Thou I may have to put a squirrel on top of it (if you've seen my last rcon paint entry you'd understand ::):)

      I ain't even gonna try to feed this beastie lemongrass...
       
       



      Known for its deathgaze and horrific flatulence, it was universally feared by adventurers.
       
      But, if some brave adventurers would gather milk, the local creameries would produce Death cheese.
      I was surfing through some posts and saw the catoplebas mentioned, so I thought that someone might enjoy seeing one.

      Hello, all!

      I'm planning to paint Ma'al Drakar as Dungeons & Dragons' Dark Lady, Tiamat.
       
      She's going to be, by far, my biggest painting project. Before I start painting, I'm planning some conversions to make her look more like D&D's Chromatic Dragon.
       
      I'd love to get any advice or tips that anyone would like to share about painting large models, or any of the other parts of the process. I'll share my plans, and try to keep up a WIP thread about this grand adventure.
       
      My first step is going to be pretty drastic, so if anyone wants to jump in with advice, please do.
       
      I have WotC's Gargantuan Black Dragon. The forward-sweeping horns are so iconic, my Tiamat's black dragon head (Ma'al's lower right head) should have horns like that. The Gargantuan Black's a perfect scale to use for Tiamat's horns. I'm actually planning to carefully cut the horns off the black dragon, make a 2-part mold, cast a set of horns for Tiamat, and reattach the horns back on the black dragon.
       
      Am I out of my mind? Does any one see potential problems with this plan, other than the usual challenges of casting minis, etc?
       
      Thanks in advance for any advice, feedback, and encouragement!

      A quick paintjob on one of the D&D Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures line, the Umber Hulk!  My somewhat local gaming store finally had them back in stock...still no luck on the elusive Beholder!

      This is one of my favorites. My friend has me painting this whole set from the module The Scourge of Suderham and the requirement is to have them all painted close to the way they appear on the box.

      crooked resin staff. I snapped the top part trying to straighten out. My friend grabbed and almost broke the bottom part trying to straighten out, thinking it was metal. It doesn't bother me too much, almost looks animated in a way.
