Maledrakh's Mantic Gargoyle Half-Troop

Recommended Posts

As has been a theme this year, the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread.

 

Finishing up units...here is the Mantic Kings of War Gargolyes. 5 of them, including the one I painted a few weeks or so ago, rebased to the standard 25mm square. For some reason I thought they had 20mm bases. At least with the 25mm base, they don't keep tipping over all the time.

 

As these are female, and do not wear any clothing as such, here is a link to the picture.

 

And it turns out there should have been 10 of them to make up a full troop, which seems to be the only quantity in the army lists these days. But seeing as they are utterly horrible to rank up because of wings everywhere, I will simply use these 5 on a large enough movement tray to represent the unit.

At least until I get round to prepping some more from the boxes of unbuilt mantic models I have from their many Kickstarters. I think I have a few more in there.

 

25mm bases. Restic.

      This is the "Soul Stealer" bust from Artisan Guild's welcome pack on patreon. I printed it on my Elegoo Mars Pro resin printer.
      This might be the first bust I have ever painted, not counting an Orc bust from the very early days of Forge World that I started but never finished and sold off at some point in the distant past (oh, the Folly of Youth).


      So why this newfound fascination for busts? I hear you ask.

      Well, it's the RCL again. "Bust" is a quarterly category, and since Reaper only make a very few busts, none of which are readily available at the moment (there will be a few released after Bones 5 fulfills later this year), the fine folks at Reaper have decreed that bust entries are not limited to Reaper product.

      Did I mention that the RCL has been a fun way to choose what to paint? It really helps to keep things fresh and to motivate to finish the pieces I start. And now also to paint other stuff than I usually would.

      I do not buy busts as they are generally outside my scope of interest. However, I do own one or two busts as .stl-files that have been parts of patreon bundles.
      And with such an extensive library of files at hand, once I decide to do one, it does not take long to make supports and print one off.

      But what to choose? Tentacle-face or a human face?

      After the Northern Penguin aka Great Auk were hunted to extinction in 1844, the convergently evolved Penguins of the southern hemisphere continue to eke out their existence in the Antarctic.

      Of course, the reality of the north and south poles being totally separate worlds has never stopped people from making stories and images with, say, polar bears and penguins in them. Or walruses. (Or Pandas).
      Such as here at the North Pole where Santa lives, we also find Ice Golems using Giant Penguins as guardians on leashes.


      Sic 'im, Mumble!
      This is another mini from the Ral Partha Europe kickstarter "Wicked Wonderland" featuring the Evil Santa I painted around Christmas, and some other polar creatures.

      They are cast in metal, I made a 60x35mm base for them.

      Sadly, the christmas minis seem to have gone from the RPE webside. Maybe they are only availabe for Christmas?

      That still only counts as one, since they are connected and on the same base.

       


      Hey! I could've sworn you were tap-dancing just now!

      The three large penguins are from the Reaper Bones 4 kickstarter's Fan Favorites expansion, and released to retail together with the Dire Penguin as the "44104 Penguin Attack Pack".

      The smaller penguin comes from Reaper "02848 Familiar Pack V" and is made in metal. I painted it as a chick on account of the perfect size.

       

      And the Dire Penguin:

      Because, of course there has to be Dire versions of Penguins too. It craves your fish!

       


      This one did not want to be photographed against this background, and turned overexposed and invisible. We'll call it well camouflaged. I had to faff about with global settings in photoshop to make these pictures even viewble. The rest of the photos were unusable.

       

      I painted it for the Reaper challenge league's January three colour challenge: choose and use any specific blue, green, pink. together with white and black from Reaper's paint line. Mixing allowed, but only with those specific colours. You can see which ones I used in the picture.

      I chose to paint it as a kind of wierd Albino Penguin, and only mixed in a small amount of the green for shading.

      I did not have any other reaper black left, and had to use Nightmare Black which is a very dark blue black.

      I mean, Dire Penguin? That is some serious Cosmic Horror right there. Where is a Shoggoth when you need one to come and clean up?

      I think tentacles are all the more horrid when they are fleshy.
       

      This would be a Roper for D&D, in case that was not obvious. A stalagmite-lookalike ambush predator that waits for the unwary to pass by, coiled tentacles at the ready to spring out and drag the victium into its hungry maw. Dungeon delvers beware.
