 Gee, the Sorceress really botched that Resurrection spell on He-Man and Battle Cat, huh?

I love this.

 

I got the same two guys in my package just a couple days ago, and now I know exactly what to do with them.

 

You don't mind if I steal this, do you?

Terrific one Ub3r !

It actually looks fantastic, love the web on the spider, and the padding (for his aching bones..chuckle) on the "Saddle".

I do; however; adore that base..

Love the texture, and the colors.

Ya Done Good !

Thanks Jay! Hey, gotta be comfortable when riding around on a spider right? 

 

Base was so simple to do too, Thrym sent me some bark a while back and I used gesso to prime it up, then black ink as a wash and then some sponge painting to give it some texture of colors and finally some dry brushing to hit the edges, then a wash of some sepia tone mixed with green ink for the areas where water would run down and stain the rocks. Added some small tufts of grass and the webbing is actually from a cotton ball.

Simple, yeah. Only 23 easy steps. ::P: 

 

Beautiful job! I really enjoy this guy. If I get this pair I'm totally doing the same thing - the folks I game with are Minecraft players, they'll probably hurt themselves laughing if a skeleton shows up riding a spider... ::D:

Ironically I saw this one pop up on the FB page first, my first thought was, "Hey, I got that same package, maybe I should..."  I probably won't, but I will steal that tip on the bark.  We've got lots of bark scavenging locations around here.  ^_^

 

Nicely done and a fun, unique concept.  Now you just have to cook up an excuse to use it in a game!  :;):

Sooo cool.

 

I got that spider too and with it the townswoman with the broom.

 

Try to sweep THAT spider under the rug!

      Like the title says this new year marks the start of my fifth year of miniature painting. Though I've managed to learn a lot both through this forum and the internet at large I still haven't learned proper layering. To anyone who has ever stumbled across any of my projects I'm sure this comes as no surprise. So armed with a Reaper gift card, obtained over the holidays, I decided it was time to finally learn layering. 

      If it wasn't clear I picked up the 2nd Learn to Paint kit.
       
      With the instructions in hand I started work on the first model (77068 Anirion the Elf Wizard). Oddly enough after four years of painting this will be the first wizard I've ever painted.
       
      Just like the first Learn to Paint kit the instructions are great. I actually got so caught up in going through the steps painting the robe that I completely forgot to take pictures. That may not sound like a compliment but believe me it is.
       
      After just an hour or so I ended the night with a very nice looking cloak. Though I must admit I didn't push the shadows or the highlights nearly hard enough it is still a great improvement over my usual results.

      Seemingly unrelated to each other, but I swear all these minis were drying from the sealer by 11:23pm on 12/31/2020.

      Here are....Lidless Eye's Last Minis of 2020!

      A Winter Wizard from Reaper Miniatures oh wait it's Santa, isn't it?
       

       
       
      To back him up, some friendly Reindeer to back him up.

      Wait, I'm being informed they're actually Grashrak's Despoilers from Warhammer: Underworlds


       
       

       

       
       

       

       
       

       
       

       
      The last bit of their native habitat, a fallen tree (3D print from The Lost Adventures)


       
      A creepy Scarecrow Puppet familiar from Reaper Miniatures.


      Arik Axereaver, Barbarian, acquired as a bonus along with the Father Christmas.  His head seems to reflect everything in the lightbox.



      And doing what we all should from the last year, the Fleeing Halfling from Warploque Miniatures.  He must know Johann.

      So some times you just done get things finished with the deadline you have imposed on yourself and this elf was one of those self-imposed deadlines. I wanted to have her done by Christmas, but just got too busy with other miniatures and other things.  I got this figure if I recall last Christmas when I won her with some others on a Reaper Christmas Giveaway on Twitch.  
       
      Here she is:
       

       
      Always thought she was a cute little figure.  The other ones I want but they haven't sold them for a few Christmasses now are the two elves, naughty and nice.  But one of these days I'm sure they will pop up again.
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy, happy belated Christmas and New Year!

      Hi there.  I've got a boney baddie for you all today.  I was disappointed by the official mini offerings for a Skull Lord (a skeletal warrior with 3 heads), and it seemed like the perfect candidate for a bit of conversion.  A few citadel skulls later and...

       
      For the observant viewer, you'll notice the Skeletal Champion's original head at the bottom of the bone pile.  His skull was a bit too bulky compared to the citadel skulls and the sculpt didn't really leave enough room for three heads so I had to cut away some of the shoulder armor.
       

       
      All said, this was a pretty simple conversion and will make for a fun fight in the future.
