Greater Earth Elemental (Kings of War)

Recommended Posts

Great job!  I love the crystals,  I just had my first experience with them on the Reaper Large Earth Elemental.  Yours look really good!

Great job on this. I especially love the "glowing" green gem on his chest.  How big is this miniature, compared to the Reaper Large Earth Elemental or Sir Forescale?

Great job on that glow.  You see that done poorly a lot, usually by it being too heavy-handed, but this looks great.

Thank you for the feedback.

This mini is quite large: The base is a 7.5cm * 7.5cm square. I'll try to post a pic with Sir Forescale when I get a chance.

 

For the glow, I'm happy you like it. I wanted to try a bit of OSL from it on the base as well, but with the flock and the water effect resin, it just made a big ugly/clumpy mess that I quickly wiped out clean. So it is only on the mini itself...

But you did get an OSL effect on the base. That one ultra bright plant looks like it is being lit up by the glow stone.

 

You did a great job on this.

Great base.

 

Love the elemental, the flock works.

 

As for the mould line..for a rock it isn't that disturbing.

 

The gems look super.

Wow, very nice. I wouldn't even know where to begin on critiquing this, everything is perfect.  With all of the jagged / sharp edges I wouldn't have ever noticed the mold line if you didn't point it out, BTW. :)

 

The 'fuzz' growth effect the dirt speckles worked out fantastic to give it an earthy feel. 

 

The glow is spectacularly executed. It legitimately looks glowy; and not at all painted

 

And the crystals! Nice ink work and beautiful highlighting. I love how you gave them some depth with the coloring; difficult to even hint at an effect of translucence on a metal mini but you pulled it off somehow.

 

Very cool.

Not a mould line, a (ahem) tectonic fracture. yes. that is what it is. Right right?

(seriously, what is up with Mantic and those facial mould lines?) 

 

And such a  great base to offset that good looking elemental.

      Here is a water elemental I finished a while back.
      Some of the pics look a little darker, as I messed with the gamma on the camera to try to prevent the white washing everything out.
      This is an oldie-but-goodie, with a sculpt that has a lot of character in the "face."
      I wanted it to look like it was coming up out of the water at the beach, so I made the base simple like beach sand.

      Enjoy.
      C&C Welcome, as always.

      If you go down to the woods today...
      For my Kings of War Forces of Nature army, The Children of the Forest

      I have a smattering of miniatures for the Forces of Nature, including a starter army from the November 2014 Kings of War 2nd ed kickstarter, delivered second half of 2015. In addition to the second edition rulebook, they also funded a few polystyrene plastic troop miniatures, and a bunch of secondary metal minis in this KS. Most of these have been lying about in a box since then.
      But for some reason I had taken out just these Forest Shamblers, prepped and built them ages ago and they were standing pround in one of the Drawers of Doom™ when I was rummaging around after something to paint the other day.
      These minis are each made in four parts, main body, head, both arms. Ball and socket-joints permit a bit of poseability. Easy to assemble (easy for being metal ... as in I needed to drill and pin all the parts just like all heavy metal bits need...), and also good on the details. These are some of the better minis Mantic have made. Probably why I chose to prep them and very few of the others back when I received them.
      The metal castings I recieved were of higher quality than earlier metal minis I have from Mantic. They might simply be early runs in the mould, but it might also be that Mantic managed to up their quality control on the metals a bit, which they sorely need(ed) to do.
      So here they are, all spruced up.

      I was painting Kieran Tallowmire. I was quite apprehensive as I found that miniature to be quite daunting will all the detail (books, candle, familiar on shoulder ...). I first wanted him to be different ... so no grey robes, no blue robes ... I went for green, which totally did not work out. So he ended up with blue robes (was the easiest way to salvage the wreck that "dark green" had done).
      Of course, the way he is holding the book and his hand, he is conjuring something,  but if green had worked, I would not have had an idea what - a plant maybe? Blue robes - water mage, water elemental. So I remembered that somewhere in my stash of 3D print files, where was a baptismal font, which looked like it could be used with Kieran.
      The next idea was to get some water sprite / elemental that was conjured out of the font ... and with a 3D file you can scale and reduce the size, so that is what I did with a water elemental / Water snake I had.
      A couple of mishaps later (me using liquid water for the first time, for example, and discovering that my version dissolves normal plastic glue) ... this is the result: I really think I had some good ideas, I'm not sure if I'm satisfied with my execution - but as I usually strive for table-top quality, I think it's ok.
       
      The base is resin by Fenryll ... Thinking about using red on the runes outside the pentagram ... or do the blue, too? Or just leave them as they are?
       
      Criticism welcome.

      EDIT: link to the live kickstarter:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/hellboy-the-board-game/description

       

      The Hellboy board game will be a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members, such as Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Roger the Homunculus, before exploring gothic locations and uncovering ancient artifacts.
      Set to make its Kickstarter debut in April 2018, the Hellboy board game will feature stunning, pre-assembled plastic miniatures that accurately capture the look and feel of Mike Mignola’s world famous comic series.
      “Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO. “The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast-paced co-operative board game that will let players experience some of their favorite moments from the series.”

      My painting time is pretty limited these days, but I still fit it in here and there. I find elementals to be excellent and relaxing subjects for brief speedpainting sessions; their crude natures are very forgiving for the time-constrained.
       

       
      This guy is a pretty hefty piece of metal & a nice unique sculpt.
