Nethyrmaul and the Hoard - 16th April: Nethyrmaul... Doesn't Really Live, But I Do

Recommended Posts

I've decided to take a leaf out of Drifter's book, and do a WIP thread for my Reaper order that finally made it home to me (after sitting in my local post office for over a week, due to an oversight related to import duty) =]

 

My hoard isn't quite as impressive as his, as my order contained four minis for somebody else (postage to the UK is frightening, so we always do big orders, and club together to make it work out if we can't afford enough individually) and therefore those aren't here =P

I've got the following....

77190: Nethyrmaul the Undying 

77240: Ingrid, Female Viking

89031: Whispering Tyrant 

77251: Bloodhoof, Minotaur Barbarian

77205: Alistrilee

77048: Mocking Beast

77240: Skeleton Guardian Sword

77241: Skeleton Guardian Axeman

 

=]

Now, Imma be swapping a couple of my skeletons with Drifter, so that we've both got more variety going on ^_^ and while he's got Dragoth, I've got the Whispering Tyrant for the leader of mine. 

 

Nethyrmaul though, is the pride of this order. I'm delighted to finally have him sitting in front of me, and I've assembled him dry for the time being, just so I can admire his ridiculously tall splendour. He needs a bit of filing here and there to make his pegs sit better, as he's a bit of a pain to pop together for me, but I'm super happy with him and can't wait to get on with painting him.

Not sure where Imma keep him, but y'know, what do. 

 

However, much as I wanna paint him, Imma start by cleaning him up, and then I'll try and paint I think the Mocking Beast tonight, coz it's just a delightful little thing, haha. Nethyrmaul may, however, get his base coat on tonight.

Painting Nethyrmaul..I will be watching this..

 

Succes!

 

Hopefully I can make some good progress on him in a relatively sensible time frame, haha =] 

 

Nice haul!  The mocking beast is a lot of fun.  Mine's on the shelf of shame at the moment......

 

Ta =P

I've been eyeing the mocking beast for ages, so I'm deeply pleased to finally have him. I'm a huge Dark Souls fan, and Mimics.... Oh Mimics xD I couldn't resist. 

 

Keep us posted on that bad boy (and share any details about sagging from his own weight of course!).

 

I shall try ^_^

I'm just admiring him sitting beside me on the couch at the moment, lol.

Never refer to any haul with Nethyrmaul in it as "not as impressive as..." anything.  Do not anger the terrible tower of Bonesium!

 

*hides from the wrath of Nethybum, who glowers at me from the side table he has taken ownership of for the time being*

I just now noticed this "works in progress" category.  I'll have to post something and then show my so called "progress".  That will mean coming back to the post in a couple months and hoping that I did something.  I just got some minis in the mail.  One, "Wild Rider", has like a dozen parts.  I think I'll post it and show my "progress".

 

I noted in an earlier post that you sometimes mod.  It'll be cool to see some of that. 

 

If I can finish just one mini by the time you finish all of these, I'll be happy.

 

Happy trails.

Good idea ^_^ 

I find WIP threads help me stay motivated with stuff, because I can keep posting and it's nice to see things develop. 

 

I'll be modding a couple of skeles a little bit, I think, and Alistrilee may get some adustments, but I'm not entirely sure. 

 

But ech =] we all work at our own pace.

 

Best of luck with your minis too ^_^ x

Update time! ^_^

It is just past 11pm here, and my mocking beast is pretty much done ^_^ 

 

I started out by painting him in Ulthuan Grey and washing him in Nuln Oil, so I could see what I was doing with him.

12049547_10153350287178451_8452713272676

 

And then over the following couple of hours, I painted him.

 

12039660_10153350530348451_8191066630903

 

I also tried out a thing with glitter that I saw on here somewhere =D rather than painting the inside of his mouth. I messed it up a bit, coz I only had super glue to hand and that's just... Messy, but erh. Overall, I'm really pleased with the effect =] 

 

He's not perfect, but he's fun enough for games =] so I'm happy. His paintjob may get touched up over time, and I'll finish off his base and take proper photos tomorrow or something ^_^

I can't wait to get home so I can see better pictures of him. Um...what's the glitter thing you're talking about?

^_^ Hopefully I can get some decent ones, haha. 

The glitter thing! Using flat round glitter for gold coins instead of painting it on =] as described here: https://www.reapermini.com/TheCraft/33

I didn't use the hot glue heap thing, because I didn't need a huge scale pile of treasure - just wanted to fill his mouth up with it a bit and put some spilling out here and there on his base ^^

      After 10 months, I finally dusted this off and finished it in an attempt to find some hobby mojo again.  Dragon is from Artisan Guild and was printed on the elegoo Mars almost a year ago. 
       
      Basecoated, drybrushed tan and then multiple washes layered before another quick drybrush and a final wash.  It was printed in clear green resin and the eyes and crystals on the rock were simply given a layer of Tamiya Clear Green after the mask was removed.  Crystals on the base are from Anarchy Models, again with a quick layer of Tamiya Clear green.  Reaper base with some Vallejo texture paste. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking.

      SO....
       
      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
       
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
       
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
       
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
       
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
       
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      77636: Death Shroud and Ironwind Metals Female Necromancer.
      A Micro Art Studio Base and Table Top Art Book and Candle.
       
      WIP:
      https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/
       
      Taletha knew she was ready, she had studied the grimoire, practiced the ritual over and over again.
      She would call upon the Spiritworld and ask for a champion to avenge her parents.
      Power surged through her when she spoke the forbidden words, a cold wind blew her candle out and suddenly the spirit appeared.
