The last few weeks have been very busy with very little time or inspiration to paint, as the general lack of posts lately will bear full witness to.
As you might imagine, I was going for green magical flames. I struggled with this, and it did not turn out as I had envisioned it.
This one I count as a bit of a failure, and I am not at all satisfied with how it turned out. Maybe I will repaint the whole thing at some point but for now I am rather sick of it.
At leaast it does look much better IRL on the table than when magnified in photos. Somthing which is a small comfort. The white for "teeth" does not work at all in the pictures and I might just redo that part and leave the rest alone. Or not. The wierd thing is that the white "teeth" are not that bad IRL. But once seen, it cannot be unseen...
What is this sorcery?!
Gah! Even the captions are uninspired. I should probably just go to bed.

Hello sentient painting creatures!
So here's one I just finished painting and just got his base finished this morning and some pictures taken:
from an eighties Ral Partha set of Julie Guthrie figures, originally called the Berserkers, with was a group of different types of fighters/warriors. Nice set, as is all of what the Goddess Guthrie creates.
With this one, I also am using as a comparison set, because I also painted this one many, many years ago. So it was in the eighties, before 1986 when I graduated high school, so this painted version is of an age between 34 and maybe 39 years old, couldn't nail down an exact date exactly:
I started out with the same skin and hair more or less on my new version, but changed up his wardrobe as to note make a carbon copy. The new figure was painted with Reaper colors and the old version was Polly S.
Anyhoos, always fun to do these little comparison shots!
I got this one printed by Flying Goat Creations.
It's part of my Shifting Sands Project
I had lots of fun painting her.
Hope you like her.
I have been putting together some eastern/desert flavoured monsters (posted separately) and also a band of rangers for the latest mission in Rangers of Shadow Deep, set in the desert.
The camels are Reaper Bones. There is a special NPC, Arisien the Royal Cartographer, and I used a Dreadmere figure for him. I have a Privateer Press model of Belit who I painted as a fish out of water Northern barbarian. Then there are two foot soldiers and a Knight. These are plastic kitbashes and a figure from Diehard miniatures. I need to finish off some other minis to round out the team, all Reaper.
So for my Shifting Sands Project I would like a photobackdrop like I did for my Lost World.
Sort of a little diorama/terrain piece on its own but also a nice backdrop.
I'll present to you:
The Temple of Apophis ( or Apep) the Forbidden God.
Nobody in his right mind would worship the Suneater, or would they?
Start and some shuffling around with pieces to get ideas.
I already have some stuff in mind, still possible to change/add stuff.
Printing the Artisan Guild Snake Statues that go with that altar as we speak.
Need more of those braziers, and I will print up some Egyptian torches, maybe columns etc...
Now! KNEEL before Apophis!!!
