Ankheg

with Metallic Chitin

 

When I decided to work on this miniature it was because the base was already made and I liked the idea of something coming out of it, so I went with the Ankheg. 

As a Bones mini it was easy to remove pieces of the integral base until I just had the stones remaining. 

And mixing in some more stones from the same stamp as the base allowed it to fit in with the base more.

The Ankheg is a combination of Bronzes except for highlights.

 

There's plain Vallejo Bronze down his back as the base coat.

 

Then the other colors are all mixed with the bronze for similar effect:
Reaper Midnight Blue, Reaper Leaf Green, and Reaper Spattered Gore.

 

The flagstones are all Vallejo Neutral Gray or that mixed with Midnight Blue and Reaper Rattlesnake Leather.

 

Vallejo Chocolate Brown was used for the "dirt" side of bricks or the loose dirt that came with the integral base.

 

Reaper Walnut Brown was used as a wash for the entire piece.

      Now that I'm back from Reapercon, I think it is time to post pictures of my entries.  This is Monique Denoir, and she was awarded a bronze Sophie in the painters category.
       
      I was pleased with the paintjob on her, and I'm happy that she could compete with the many very well painted Reaper miniatures in the competition (every year there are quite a few fantastic entries- this year was no exception).

      I love this guy's pose, and doing his eyes was really fun.  I'm conflicted about the base though... the figure seems stable enough, but the base seems too plain.  Suggestions welcome!

      This one I got from @strawhat part of a Toob Animal Set.
      I repainted it.
      I used it on my Welcome to the Jungle Terrain / Diorama piece.
      Which in turn is part of my Lost World Project.
       
      Here I took pics of the Giant Centipede in his own corner of the piece.
      Done in Scale 75 Inks.

      As you continue your descent even deeper into the bowels of the earth, you learn that it's not only the huge monsters that are to be feared. While you are sleeping, after your watch shift, a creature drops silently next to you. Without you realizing it, it manages to sting you right on the neck and starts to suck you blood. Sometime later, you woke up with an intense pain on the back of your neck. You realize with disgust what happened. Your wound is infected, and you feel very weak. After examining, your companions realize that you are infected with a serious illness. If you are not treated quickly, you will certainly die within the next few days.

      Been playing this silly board game with my siblings called Quartz where you all play dwarven miners who mine for valuable gems. The day marker that comes with the game is just a lame little yellow piece of wood, so I set out to find something better to replace it. Ended up settling on the pack mule with plans to paint it gold. Then for no reason whatsoever it occurred to me that maybe it would be fun for each player to have their own little dwarf character that does absolutely nothing in the game itself. So I added pretty much every Dwarf that Reaper sells to my cart as well. My goal was to paint the pack mule with Vallejo liquid gold and all the dwarves with a bronze-like metal paint. Below is the result, and keep in mind I have never painted before...
       

       

       
      You may notice that two of these are not dwarves. Well I would counter that by telling you that one of them is an undead dwarf brought back to life by the sheer need to mine fancy gems, while the other is a tavern wench who's legs I MAY have chopped off to make her dwarf height. So for all intents and purposes, she is a dwarf.
       
      I used Vallejo Liquid Gold on the mule and MSP Dwarven Gold (mixed with varying amounts of MSP Dragon Black) on the dwarves. Also shaded them with MSP Sepia Wash then sealed them up with Vallejo Satin Varnish.
      Oh and fun fact, if you want to add heft to a 32mm round base a sacagawea coin fits perfectly inside and adds just the right amount of weight. Also threw on a 32mm washer.
