Sewer beast.....monster....thing. Metal Magic/EM4 miniatures

Recommended Posts

It certainly looks revolting. It might be a little dark; I think you could get away with daubing a few medium green to pale green highlights on a few upper curved surfaces. And I think you have a hair caught under one of the tentacles.

Looks great! I agree with Pingo tho, a few touches of highlights to bring out more detail and give it more depth would be a good thing.

Looking really good Chaoswolf.

Looks like you went nuts putting that mid-tone on the sides of the mini !

All those squiggles !

I really liked what you did !

Looks pretty gnarly.  I'll echo the others and suggest bringing the brightest highlights higher--making the bubbles pop, visually--not literally--and distinguishing the creature from the base.

I think it looks really interesting. I like the almost mono-color look it has, looks very much like a sewer or deep sea creature of some sort.

I mean, it could be the photo since it's shot against a light background...

 

I like the subtle layers of color. It may be a mess of different paints, inks, and washes, but it's clearly not just dip and shade.

Thank you, everyone!

I think i will go back and give that a shot, thanks!

And you're right, that is a hair hiding back there, dang it! :blush:

 

It's one of the lovecraftian horrors from em4miniatures. There are 3 in the set.

Very cool. I thought I was the only one who had these!

Very interesting, I wonder who made it first and sold the rights to who. I've only got the one, and I remember buying it in a blister pack that had the Metal Magic logo on it.

Thanks for the info, both of you!

Thanks!

I used a light green base coat, a green ink, a purple ink, a blue wash,a green wash , a brown ink, and finally a little white/yellow/light green dry brushing

They were sold both separatly from Metal Magic as in a set.

Later when the rights went over to Em4 they sold it as a set I believe.

 

I got the catalogue for you,

Will pm it.

      I painted an eyebeast for the D&D Painting class I was teaching One of the techniques we were working on was blending so I wanted to make sure that I chose colors that the techniques would show well hence the bright green and pink. The class was fun and everyone's eyebeasts turned out great!

      I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
       
      I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors!  Do I get bonus points for that?
       

       

       
      Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.

      For a recent D&D session, the DM said he needed skellies so I knocked these out in about 90 mins.

       

       

       

       

       
      I did go back after the session and fixed a little highlighting but all in all I was pretty happy with how they turned out for a quick paint up. Since bones absorb colors from the minerals around them, I wanted to go less bleached and more unhallowed, greasy, dirty look. So I stuck to the darker bone colors and used the sepia wash. I must have a thing for owlbears since I enjoy painting them and really loved the skeleton.

      After yesterday's work on the Bones 4 scenics, I dug around and finished off the first of a set of resin buildings I got from an Apocalypse Miniatures Kickstarter a year or two back:
       

       

       
      I also finished basing up a seriously vintage (ca. 1974) Minifig Ent:
       

       

       
      And, finally touched up basing and finished off my Gencon speed paints:
       

       

       
      From left to right, a Word preliminary round figures, a Reaper preliminary round, a Wyrd final round, and a Reaper final round. (So, 45 minutes on the preliminaries and 60 minutes on the finals...I added names to the two preliminaries; retitled the Word final, and attached the Reaper final to a Frostgrave-themed snow and rock base.)

      Ok, here are the rules:
      1) Please don't sign up if you were there, or if you had someone get you stuff from the con. This is supposed to be for people who weren't there. No, I'm not going to check, but the gods will know, and they will visit a terrible vengeance upon you.
       
      2) Unlike the regular version of the BoGW that you may be familiar with, you don't need to match anything you take. All of this stuff was donated by people to allow other people to get some cool stuff. So, take whatever you want (but see below).
       
      3) No sharing your picks. If it works out that everyone involved gets to pick 3 figures but you only want 2, you can't pass that extra figure choice down the line to someone else. Everyone gets to have the same amount of stuff, unless someone chooses to take less. If there's stuff left over, send it back to me and it'll get folded into the next regular Box of Goodwill. (Exact number of choices will be based on the amount of people signing up)
       
      Most of the stuff this time around is metal and resin miniatures. There are no Bones (I did receive a few of the monthly Bones giveaway figure, but they're all the same figure, and I was probably only going to throw in a few to round out numbers if it becomes necessary, otherwise, I was going to put them in the regular BoGW). There are a few non-miniature items, such as bags, dice, etc. There are not enough of these items to go around, so if you want a bag, for example, that counts as one of your picks.
       
      Any other questions, please let me know.
