Burrowing Horror - My First Bones Mini

Recommended Posts

Love the color and your painting of the model overall.  To be honest, I had no idea that model had a smile like that, nor the rear "vent" behind the raised back spine(?), so my hat's off to you.  Your description has given me an idea how I'd paint one if I ever got one.

The Shutterbug forum will help you take better pics....

What do you sculpt? if I may ask?

There is a Sculpting forum as well....

Hey Everyone,


Thanks for the warm welcome! This critter was definitely a fun one to start on. I just finished up my take on the Dragon Turtle the other day-- another really fun one-- so I'll post that soon.


@Knarthex, I sculpt a variety of miniature-related stuff in different media; primarily terrain nowadays. I'm the guy behind Griffin Tamer Studio, if you've ever heard of that, and I also work with Dwarven Forge. 


@Vegascat, yeah, the vent behind the 'fin' on the critter is an interesting detail. Maybe a sort of gill so it can breath air while still mostly submerged in loose earth? Certainly a weak spot to be exploited by PCs who are paying attention...

      Deadlands is a series of Role Playing Games based around alternative history, with the major change taking place on July 3rd, 1863. This change, called The Reckoning, made the US Civil War grind to a halt, resulted in half of California fall into the sea, and had a new miracle substance called Ghost Rock revolutionize technology. The game has used different rules systems; including the original "classic" system, Savage Worlds, a new system that is/was releasing soon, a d20 conversion, and had a GURPS port.
      The Weird West - Beginning in 1876, players would wander around the Weird West, full of monsters, gunfighters, agents of the United States of America, Confederate States of America, the United Kingdom, the Empire of Mexico, the Dominion of Canada, and Lost Angels, might get involved in the Great Rail Wars, get lost in the Sioux Nations, or confront the creations of the New Science.
      The Wasted West - It's 2094 and the world is almost over. Irradiated Ghost Rock bombs, as well as conventional nuclear weapons, were dropped on major cities all over the globe. The east of the Mississippi  river is full of the Walkin' Dead, the city of Lost Angels has fallen into the Pacific Ocean, and the only place where people can eek out a living is the west. Using Spook Juice, you can travel the collapsing highways from Junkyard to the ruins of Boise, and all points in between, traveling with Templars, Tellers, Cyborgs, Toxic Shamans, Sykers, and Junkmen.
      The Way Out West - The final part of the original trilogy of settings, this one is set on Banshee, the first alien world colonized by humanity. Of course, there were native people there first, and history has repeated itself again. Take up a badge and defend the colonists, or rob them instead, or maybe try to work with the natives, now that no one from Earth is coming to help. Ever.
      Deadlands: Noir - Set in the period between World Wars, centered around New Orleans, this was the first new game and first one done in the Savage Worlds system.
      So, I made this thread so folks could talk about games they're run/played, ask questions about the setting and system(s), or just share their love for the game.

      Makers of Humblewood 5e Setting & other rpg products. I'm gonna back, just not sure which one. Most likely the pdf & choice of card deck, but what card deck is the question. I'll probably add on a couple things as well. I'd love the deluxe box set but that is over my budget for a non-Reaper KS.

      Weird mini of the moment...
      This one is some real heavy metal!
      It just looks like a pile of intestines with a couple of mouths. Should have given them a dark green grayish wash to tone down the Pepto look.

      Matthias the Twisted was insanely fun to paint, he's definitely  one of my favorite undead models, and one of Bobby Jackson's more eerie characters. 
      Despite it being the bane to Castlevania fans everywhere, i took inspiration for the hunter from Simon off of the cover of the Castlevania 2 box art. What a game haha. Sorry for the pictures being a bit blurry, but C&C is surely appreciated.
