Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor! Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini. Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit. I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him. Pretty happy with the result. You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather. I think I was successful. I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain. Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.
Another tabletop lady - tried stronger source lighting and focused on trying to smoothly blend the very pale skin. Also managed to make a reasonable base with the greenstuff roller this time - so overall happy to try these things out on her, including the flowers.
Well, I'm back in lockdown. Full, nothing open, don't leave your house, furloughed lockdown. Fortunately, Reaper have started the Reaper Challenge League, which coincides nicely with me having a lot of extra painting time. I'm already in a duo and trio for the league with @Thoramel, @Pochiand @Evilhalfling, but the Fire or Ice category really intrigued me. I love doing fire dragons so I almost started on Narthrax, but then I remembered that I've got a Roc from Bones 4 that I'd always wanted to do as a phoenix. So why not kill two birds with one stone(or roc)?
I'd forgotten just how big this 'mini' was that's a 1cm grid on the cutting mat.
Nevertheless, I started under the watchful eye of my painting assistant
First up, a decent coat of Pure Black
Onto the horror, picking out the details with Garnet Red. This took forever, and almost broke one of my old brushes.
I started brightening the feathers with Brilliant Red, you can see how much difference it makes in the lower wing.
....and both upper wings are highlighted. All I have to do now is apply the red to the undersides of the wings, body and head of the birdie. Shouldn't take too long!
I may have started on Narthrax too.... there's only so much red one person can take!
Thanks for looking everyone. It's been a bit of a slog so far, but it should get easier from now on.
Hi everyone. Got a couple more demons for you today. This is a pair of Bones Fly Demons for use as Chasme in D&D. These guys could also serve double duty as Giant Flies for Rangers of Shadow Deep.
More Below the Spoiler:
Feel free to check out more of my demons and devils in my Blood War project HERE.
If anyone has any leads on other interesting giant fly minis please share them, as I've been finding it difficult to find good models for RoSD.
Also, how do you paint insect wings? They're such a unique feature in the animal kingdom and I'd love to see how you go about it?
Lots of pictures. I've done my best to keep the size down.
In the waning days of the Galactic Rebellion, before the Battle of Yavin and Scariff, the Empire had nearly wiped out not only the Jedi but also many users of The Force. Emperor Palpatine had special hunters, known as Inquisitors, that scoured the galaxy and captured/killed those rogues that survived Order 66.
The Grand Inquisitor tracked another Force user to the remote Tibana gas mine known as Cloud City hovering in the Bespin atmosphere. The Inquisitor had orders to capture the rogue and return him to the Emperor for purposes unknown. After setting up a carbon-freezing chamber in the depths of the city, the Inquisitor set his plan into motion. Hired muscle, in the form of notorious Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk, would help drive Hawkbat to the chamber into the waiting trap manned by Agent Blaise and two Imperial Security Bureau agents.
The large sums of money thrown around by the Empire aroused the suspicions of vile gangster Jabba the Hutt who, despite his long residency on Tatooine, has decided to make a rare off-world trip to witness the hunt. Bringing along a trusted, if slow on the draw, bounty hunter known as Greedo. Jabba would attempt to maneuver the happenings to his own advantage.
Agent Hawkbat, despite being useful on many occasions to Cloud City administrator Lando Calrissean, had run out of allies there. Unbeknownst to him, Obi-Wan Kenobi had picked up his lightsaber once more and sought to foil the Inquisitor's plans. After contacting an old friend, Ithorian Diplomat Murne Rin, the two would seek aid from the Administrator--If Hawkbat were no longer in Cloud City the Imperials would likely leave. The Tibana gas mined here was not of sufficient quantity or quality to warrant further action by the Empire, and the Inquisitor seemed to barely notice anything not directly related to his quarry.
But could Obi-Wan and Murne count on Calrissean's aid, or would he betray them all to Imperial forces?
It appears that I've missed the rings on a couple bases. I'll have to go back, one of these days, and tidy those up.
