Maledrakh's Unspeakable Mouth, vol 1: Chainmail Abyssal Maw

Recommended Posts

This month I am at the Mountains of Minis, delving them with gusto, having done mould-line carving, scrubbing, boiling, assembling etc a large portion of the roughly 20-ish minis I got in the Bones 2 shipment. And sacrificing the required amounts of fingerblood, of course.
 
At any rate, what few minis I actually get around to painting this month will all go into the resolutionary challenge total. The complete list will be in the challenge thread post. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread.
 
Seeing as I am momentarily sick of the bendy bones, I have painted some metal minis for a change.
 
Hereby I present a new series entitled At the Mountains of Minis: The Unspeakable Mouth
Which showcases minis with slightly overstated eating orifices (well, what did you think it would be about?)

From “Chainmail†the year 2002 Dungeons and Dragons metal miniature line by Wizards of the Coast (when they tried to emulate Games Workshop in size and somewhat in style of the minis). Chainmail had a few nice minis and several bad ones.
 
The game was not a resounding success, and was replaced the following year by the “Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures Gameâ€, with prepainted plastic minis in random booster packs.
 
Metal, 30mm base.

Awe I think it's kinda cute in a weird disgusting way. I really like the color choices and how you've left the hands shiny and wet looking. The base is nice as well!

      These are the plastic Wyrd 20620 Wild Boars (Ulix).  I picked them for a quick tabletop paint job.  Unlike many of the Wyrd plastic minis these where easy to glue together.
      May they eat many adventurers, but no more druids... 
      One of my early characters, a level one druid, was killed by a wild boar in the very first playing session after she failed her animal handling roll.  In the decades since, any time I see see a nasty pig figure I say that is the one that killed my druid.  So one of these nasty critters is surely the one!

      Labella DeMornay, Banshee from the first Bones kickstarter, This is a green translucent, and like all translucents I undercoated it first with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish, so the following washes would have something to adhere to. This is key to painting translucents. Also, make sure to use transparent paints, like inks and quickshade washes. Opaque paints will invariably ruin the translucent effect. The green tinge of the plastic will affect any transparent colours that are used, and so this must be taken into consideration. For her brown hair, I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade (a dark red). The skin is Citadel Casandora Yellow Shade, the dress is old Citadel Blue glaze (red flip-cap hex pot) and ditto Turquoise glaze. Taking care to draw off any pooling and to avoid unsightly tide marks by smoothing with a damp brush while wet. The aim is to tint the translucent plastic, not sp much paint over it, or even "shade" it. Not sure how pleased I am with the results here. I think the results could have been much better if the plastic was clear not green tinged.

      This minis was a kickstarter exclusive from the Mantic Kings of War second edition campaign in 2014.
      "Blaine" is a Mantic mascot of sorts. and there has been a version of him in all their own IP kickstarters apart from the vey first Kings of War. So here is him as the Fantasy Tyrant King.
       

      A resin special mini, there were some problems with delivery and I heard several backers never got their Blaine for some reason or other.
      I have not really had any delivery problems to speak of from any of the many Mantic kickstarters I have backed, and I obviosly got my Blaine with my shipment at the time.
       
      I used a bespoke 3D printed 25x50mm oval base, In retrospect I probably should have gone with a slightly larger base as it does seem a little small.
       

      This picture illustrates the smaller Mantic truscale as opposed to the larger Reaper heroic scale.
