Weirdly, I rather like your use of purple. Most bulettes I have seen tend to follow either the first edition Monster Manual's color scheme, or the WOTC prepaints color scheme. YOURS, on the other hand, is more earthtoned, and kinda... realistic, for a big burrowing critter. Nice highlighting. Now I wanna get mine out...

I like him!  If you feel like the purple scales are too much, I'd maybe suggest giving the plates and scales a light wash with another color to tie them together a bit (dark green? burgundy?).  Or bring some of the plate colors down to wash the scales with, and leave the plates as is, since those do look quite finished and nice.

 

But I do think he looks pretty cool as-is.  Purple people-eater!

hmm basing.. he fits on a 3" base, mostly. 

 

any suggestions on this guy? 

I'd say it looks too small for a 3" round base, I plan to put mine on a 1.5" x 3" Pill base. Maybe elevated slightly on a stone. If you have any vehicles from the Mechwarrior Clix, they are that 1.5"x3" size.

 

Maybe make the under the main fin area meat coloured since thats a mythical weak spot for them. I think metallic highlights would look cool on back plates and leg scales.

      Etherfields has some strange miniatures concepts.
      I wanted to embrace the dreamlike quality of them all by giving them a unified mood. So all of these minis use purple shadows and pale green highlighting.

      Finished my first mini this year, and oddly enough it was a speedpaint, taking just over an hour...





       
      On the flipside, some of those colours work together really, REALLY well, like Sunrise Orange and Heart Throb Paint.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...
       


       
      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...

      All the information you need should be here.

      As a change of pace from the Hard Mode Challenge, this round will have a Skill Challenge.

      May and June 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      "Mayday!" is an international distress signal used in verbal communication in ships and aircraft.  Your first bonus challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to paint a miniature in some distress.  This could be a diorama, an adventurer falling into a trap, villian whose weapon just broke, or anything else your mind can conjure.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      The Solstices: June marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.  Paint a miniature or a pair of miniatures showcasing this duality.

      Skill Challenge: OSL
      Try your hand at painting a miniature using OSL or Object-Source Lighting.  If you feel like this is something that is already in your wheelhouse, work on your technical skills in another area.  Practice NMM, TMM, wet-blending, sculpting, or anything else you've been meaning to try.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
