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!

      Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set.

      Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

      These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.
       

      36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.

      Goblin Spitters are the bowmen in Kings of War Vanguard
       



      The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)
       
      I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.
      This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,
      These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.

      thus begins the 1985 Fantasy movie Legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring a very young Tom Cruise and the excellent Tim Curry. If you have not seen this movie, do so right away. A classic Fantasy, in several ways.

      I have not really had the inclination to paint much the last few weeks, such is the way of the world.
      Picking up the brush again, we start with another one from the first Bones kickstarter that as been cluttering up my painting desk in a half-done state since whenever.
