A Kraken who is also a Carnivorous Plant, by Pingo

I approve of a household that would have something like this in a pot somewhere on a windowsill.

Watching your work unfold is endlessly entertaining. The wood is already fun.

*splorp* It's brown.
*dabdabdab* it's brown with green smudged on it.
*slap*

IT'S AN ALGAL BLOOM ON A SHIPWRECK

How?

HOWWWWW?????

(Edit: I think I can see that you're still building up the colour, but the illusion has already kicked in. Very enthusiastic to see it unfold further.)

Blu-Tack? I thought the going trend was to use rare earth magnets to connect pieces...

Great work Pingo!

I agree with GCB, use the magnets. You can find them Amazingly easy on Google. They come in all shapes and sizes.

Been using the things for years now for weapon swaps on 40K figures. Instead of having to buy multiples, 1 fig can do alot.

Agreed, I love watching Pingo's very painterly style unfold.  It's like magic.

There's a step in Pingo's process where the mini near-instantaneously goes from a collection of random splotches of color to a completed mini. This is called "Pingoing a Mini."

 

Either that, or she's just bad at keeping WIPs. :;):

Honestly, depending on the age of the wreck, the ropes would either be bleached out from the salt water, gone altogether, or somewhere in-between

Pingo, How are you liking those Golden Fluid Acrylics? I keep eyeing them in the art stores, but haven't pulled the trigger and bought them yet. Their coverage looks so-so to me.

Pingo, How are you liking those Golden Fluid Acrylics? I keep eyeing them in the art stores, but haven't pulled the trigger and bought them yet. Their coverage looks so-so to me.

The ones I'm using are the Matte Fluid Acrylics, which are a little harder to find. Golden's regular Fluid Acrylics have a glossier finish but otherwise work about the same.

 

I like 'em fine. Golden Fluid Acrylics are about halfway between Reaper paints and tube paints in texture, thicker than most minis painters may be accustomed to but still fluid. They don't seem to be quite as matte as minis paints. While most of the colors I have used have had a true matte finish, some are satiny, including most reds I've tried and the Carbon Black.

 

(You can see the gloss on some of the red areas of the kraken, above.)

 

They are single-pigment paints which generally don't separate and don't need shaking (possibly a little if they are left untouched for months).

 

They don't have any additives (except presumably a little matting agent), so people would need to add their own flow aid, drying retarder, etc., if desired. I find they thin pretty well with water, but some colors work better with a drop of medium added as well.

 

Transparent pigments are going to be transparent whatever the brand of paint. Their opaque pigments, such as Titanium White and Yellow Ochre, cover just fine for my purposes. The Golden labels have a stripe of real paint over printed black and white stripes so you can gauge their opacity for yourself.

Me to Pingo:  Could you hurry up on the Kraken, please?  I'm getting inspired for upcoming adventures.

Pingo to Me: Sure.

 

Sometimes I wonder if she has any sense of self preservation at all.

      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...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
