My stash will arrive today!
I haven't done a WIP in a very long time , something I intend to remedy.
I am extremely excited to get my hands on my contribution to Bones 5, the Whispering Ghoulsbane. Maybe more so than any prior piece I have made. Seeing as how I don't actually have the mini in had at this moment, Id thought I'd fill this space with some history about the concept.
I like to watch reviews for feedback on pieces I've made (and learned a lot). A few review waffled on what the thing was, exactly. Part of me revels in this ambiguity -it is what you want it to be. That said it does have a mundane monster origin story.......wait, say, lets make a game of it!
Which "old school" monster served as the primary inspiration for the Whispering Ghoulsbane? take a guess.
Wait wait wait! it's here, at this very moment! Delivery! let the prepping begin.
Step 1: Open the bag.
That is all for now.
And good evening to all of you of the Reaper persuasion,
So just finished photographing this guy this afternoon. This is an Earth Elemental, originally from a blister pack of three minis, this guy, the Earth Elementals Lord I painted a few days back and an interesting looking iguana-like Earth Familiar, which is on my docket next. This was sculpted by Jim Johnson and released somewhere in the nineties. Fun figure to paint, not a drop of metal, but all sorts of different earth tones. The only un-earthy tones are the crystals in his spine, which I painted blue. I wanted to originally paint them green to match the crystal in the Shaman's staff, but I didn't think there would be enough contrast between the grass/moss around the stones.
The little iguana familiar will be next!
Here is a trio of earth elementals/golems. Really simple to paint, Vallejo Israeli sand primer (taupe), then an umber wash, then a bit of a highlight with Army Painter Banshee Brown/beige. The tallest one is a golem from Hell Dorado. The middle chap is from Westwind "Dwarf Wars" and the smallest is old, unknown manufacturer.
The rocks for the base were made from foam clay pressed into a Woodland Scenics mould. Much lighter than plaster. Also I used brown foam clay so it was easy to paint.
I am pretty new to the hobby having started painting in February. I finally worked up the courage to post one of my completed projects in the hopes of getting some feedback. So here is my painted Large Earth Elemental from the Reaper Bones line. Any advise is very welcome as I would very much like to improve! Thanks!
I painted this large water elemental several months back to fill a gap in my water elemental supply. It started out translucent blue, but I painted it opaque. I haven't tried inking the transulcents like others have, I lack the inks, and feel I get good control with opaques. I wanted a simple beach sand looking base, to suggest he has washed up on the beach to harass sunbathers. C&C Welcome.
