A Pair of Xorn. Otherworld DM33 & Ral Partha 11-497

Recommended Posts

***Since I wasn't doing anything else....****

 

from Wiki

 

Xorn devour earthen and silicate materials, and have a taste for gems, precious metals, and magical items. Xorns sometimes attack wealthy adventurers, especially on the Prime Material Plane, where it is much harder for the xorn to find its normal sustenance.

 
A xorn is described as having a barrel-shaped body with trilateral radial symmetry; three arms, legs and eyes spaced around its torso. The mouth is located at the top of the body.
 
Because a xorn can move through earth as easily as a fish moves through water, when they choose to attack they often use ambushes, hiding just below or above a potential victim. In fact, they often move around with the lower part of their body inside the earth.
 
Xorn come in three categories: minor, average, and elder.
 
Another creature related to the xorn is the xaren. They are slightly smaller with shinier, metallic hides. While xorn feed on minerals and stone, xaren prefer enchanted metal, such as magic weapons and armor.

 

I started on these 2 last night during the hangout...

I am wondering if I shouldn't paint this one as a Xaren, as it is a little smaller....

This is the first figure I work on from Otherworld, and it is a nice piece with good casting and minimal mold lines. The 7(!) pieces fit together pretty well, but I needed to drill out 2 of the arm holes, and do a little crack filling...

Awesome minis!

 

Very strange too...

 

I have painted up some Otherworld Skeletons before, good quality, but fragile parts.

 

Still have to build the Djinn...

 

So Xorn can look like any stone/gem/mineral right?

That's a can of possibilities to be opened.

So I have been working on these 2, drybrushing, washing....

Last night I added more white to their eyes and mouths, and added some Nacre to all the segments, high lights etc...

What color would the inside of a critter that eats rocks look like :blink:  :blink:  :blink:

 

Thanks for looking?

Something like Magma, it will melt the rocks so he can digest it.

So listening to ideas, and having a thought or 2 of my own, I worked on these 2 guys....

 

I decided that indeed, the inside of these things needs to be lava like, (thanks Xherman!) so I am trying to paint their gullets that way...

I also decided that their lips and teeth better be pretty tough, so the teeth are Black Metal, while the lips are GW Tin Bitz...

The eyes are a mix of Citrine Alchemy and GX Yellow Ink, figuring the eyes needed to look a little 'otherworldly',,,,

The white that you see on the eyes is just reflected light, not paint....

 

Comments and critiques ignored and the poster thrashed!

So I did some more work on these 2 over the weekend...

 

I added some orange ink around the eyes, then did the Irises witha Reaper Sample metallic blue with some Inktensity Blue mixed in, then the slit pupils with Garnet Alchemy mixed with Mayhem Red.

 

The Claws were done with a mix of Iroku, Moonstone Alchemy and Amber Alchemy, then I mixed some Mohave white and white alchemy into that, and then a bit more white alchemy and some reaper leather white. Then a wash of dilute Agrax Earthshade.

 

The 'Partha base is different greys and blues then a wash of black magic wash.

The Gem is Cantabric Blue for a base, with Tesla and Mediterranean blues highlighting up.

They Rock!

 

Good progress!

 

Will you give them a reflection dot of white for the eyes?

Great Work!  I like your choice of colors for the mouth.

Thanks!

 

Moar work!

 

These 2 are pretty much finished...

I decided not to do 'eye spot reflections', as it would be hard to do on a trilaterally symmetrical creature with any kind of 'reality'....

(Thanks Dilvish!)

 

The Ral Partha is done, but I may do a little more to the base, maybe a touch of flock, or some other color of sand / stone to break it up a bit....

The Otherworld mini is done, but now I need to do a base....

I have a base from RAFM, (91) that I thought might work, but it is just a tad small...

post-14271-0-41863000-1467775217_thumb.jpg post-14271-0-23324500-1467775221_thumb.jpg

 

But maybe I could do my own with some green stuff?

post-14271-0-51704200-1467775261_thumb.jpgpost-14271-0-49647100-1467775262_thumb.jpg post-14271-0-65882500-1467775263_thumb.jpg post-14271-0-60646200-1467775264_thumb.jpg

 

Not sure how good these look, may have to skin coat them and do some better texturing..... as well as adding more...

But I need to make sure the Mini fits as well!

 

And when I said 'Done' I did mean subject to people saying "HEY STOOPID, you need to XXXXX" :blink:  ::P:

 

So let me know what you think!
