Marbrezuk (02656) Glabrezu

Recommended Posts

I love how different people can take the same creature and go completely opposite ends of the spectrum. I'm currently painting a glabrezu from the Fractured Dimensions line and I'm completely in warm tones. I like what you did!

very nice!   I like how you have managed to make the brown fur and the green skin work together and the bluish shading/blend on the claws is the topping on the cake touch.

You did a great job on it!

 

ETA--looking at it some more, I think it'd look better on a bigger base, but that's just nitpickiing.

Thanks for all the kind words all! Keeps me painting!

Love it! You're quite prolific, aren't you?! ;p

I get between 3 and 4 hours per work day to paint in the evenings, and I am always working on a bunch of different minis. If I start to lose the muse on one, I usually find it on another. I have 5 kobolds, an ogre, a demon bunny, and Neroli all in some stage of work, as well as Thornwart. Thornwart just needs his basing finished and will be up tonight. Plus another 20 odd that are primed, some with at least 1 color on them....

The blue on the claws is airbrushed on, and the edges highlighted, so I can't take much credit for the blending there

I don't usually base monsters with more than they come with, unless there are wobble issues, or have fiddly things like out stretched wings, tentacles, etc, or have no base at all. (The Remorhaz is an exception, but it may get something now as I have learned to do a winter base.)

As they are also gaming pieces as well, but we are not all that picky about distance in fights....

NP, George.

 

Yeah, depends on what cell phone you have, some of the best cameras nowadays are actually on cell phones and tablets.

Gorgeous job. Sounds like you have a similar WIP pile to mine

Just about every pic I posted on the forum and in the inspiration gallery up until mid September was taken on a cel phone. Now that I found my real camera, maybe people can actually see my paint jobs as opposed to blurry pics...

 

Yes I always have a lot of projects going on at once...

 

Takhisis

2 Candelabra

an Urn / Giant's spitoon

An Efreeti

A Hellhound being re worked

A badger

A fox

A half orc ranger

The Pillar of Evil

Re Basing a Displacer Beast for a tutorial

Those are some of the things I am working on...

Not to mention the stuff that is primed!

      Just thought i would put these up to show off the new party making their way through saltmarsh.  A party of six graduates from the civilized lands, roped into fulfilling a debt by their mentors.  At least they are working together...  they arent my finest work but for 6 hours of painting, they will do nicely for our little gaming group and the group enjoyed the surprise of coming to their second session to discover they all had custom painted minis!
       
      we have a Halfling fighter
      an elven thief with a fixation for daggers
      a halfling bard
      the blue dragonborn priest of Protos
      the black Dragonborn warlock (had to create the head.  I couldnt find a dragonborn mini with an 8 strength...)
      and a Human ranger from the backstreets and slums
       
      hope you enjoy them, i dont know how long they will last....

      This is the second of my dropfleet starter sets.  The fleet represents the United Colonies of Man (UCM).  After humanity was chased off the planet earth and forced to scatter to its colonies to lick their wounds, the colonies united and formed an armada to take back the home planet.  These ships are the final gasp of mankind to keep from becoming nests for a truly invasive species.  the game itself is a little different from Most because battles are fought in nearspace around planets.  The map is a planet viewed from low earth orbit  and the ships can move from high to middle and low orbits, each having an effect on the ship speed and who can attack what.  The game itself is pretty fast, a starter fleet battle will resolve in about an hour for us on the rare occasions when i get to play and the sides are pretty evenly matched although they have very different play styles.  TTcombat took over the license this year and saved the game from fading away and have put quite a bit of effort into new miniatures and rewriting the rules to fix problems and make the dropfleet game compatible with its companion game Dropzone.  now you can run a companion game allowing the two games to interact on a limited basis which, i think adds a lot to both sides, if you can find that many players...
       
      I decided to takes some liberties with these vessels.  i wanted each ship to be distinctive and easy to spot on the game board so the grid pattern built into the armor of the ship, which is usually blacked out, i lined in white and then traced over with various florescent colors from Scale 75.  The effect was not quite what I was after but it's still pretty good and certainly usable on the field of battle.  The ships are a starter set of 3 crusiers (2 heavy 1 light) and 4 frigates.  The base color is black with a midnight blue ghost tint and then highlighted with white and flouresents
       
      Hope you enjoy them!  I certainly enjoyed painting them!

      Time to get the year started with a little space adventure!  It took me about a week of spare time to get this fleet assembled and painted.  Space ships are one of the few miniatures i find where less is more and although they look intensely detailed, there really isnt that much to work with.
       
      This is an enjoyable game that I wish i had the opportunity to play more often but, time being what it is, i am limited in what i am willing to teach people to do and I get tired of always having to explain the rules.  Anyway, the Scourge are a bunch of nasty alien body snatchers who have invaded earth, forcing the remanents of humanity to go hide in the colony worlds to rebuild for the re-invasion of earth.  They also have some of the coolest ships!  These were done mainly with airbrush work except for some of the lights and engine fire.  I started with the badger metal colored primer and then sprayed the front with plasma fluid ghost tint and the back with blue ghost tint winding up with a really wonderful color shift across the minis.  The last piece is a leftover Aquan dreadnought from a game called Firestorm Armada I used a slightly different color profile so it would blend with both this game and the original firestorm fleet (okay i have a soft spot for spaceships.  I just wish the games would play half as cool as they look!)  This is basically a starter fleet consisting of three versions of the Cruiser class and 4 Frigates.  That and as I said, the dreadnought for good measure!
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Spent the last three days doing new techniques I've never done before. First-time face texturing, using an airbrush, and first time NMM.

      I made this model at a Reaper Bones make & take at Historicon 2015(?).  I really enjoyed making him and thought he turned out well and had plans to paint him one day......and then the Secret Sophie came along and my recipient wanted a cool monster or creature and I thought this model fit the bill in spades.   The main model I used is KAGUNK, OGRE CHIEFTAIN (https://www.reapermini.com/search/ogre/latest/77105), armed with a demonic looking whip, using a sarcophagus lid as a shield (https://www.reapermini.com/search/crypt/latest/77137), legs from...something (gryphon maybe), spines from a small dragon, and some various heads as trophies around his waist. 
       
      I decided to name him Takzez and have given him two brief write ups - one as a bad guy and one as a good guy.  However, I do want to have the receiver to have something to himself and he can let me know later if he'd like me to share that info or not later.  But in the meantime, here he is.  Apologies for the photos, I rushed as it is already late.

       
       
      I do wish I'd had more time to work on his skin and legs, although the skin turned out tons better than my first attempt at it.  Oh wow, I am going to hit that inner bottom corner on the shield with a was a few times before I send it.
       
      C&C welcome!
