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...

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!

      Felicitations on your personal solstice!

      The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost.  Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table.  They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done.  Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight.  Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover.  Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...
       


       
      Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them.  That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...

      Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual.

      All the information you need should be here.

      As a change of pace from the Hard Mode Challenge, this round will have a Skill Challenge.

      May and June 2019 Challenge

      Your challenge is: 9!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      "Mayday!" is an international distress signal used in verbal communication in ships and aircraft.  Your first bonus challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to paint a miniature in some distress.  This could be a diorama, an adventurer falling into a trap, villian whose weapon just broke, or anything else your mind can conjure.

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      The Solstices: June marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere.  Paint a miniature or a pair of miniatures showcasing this duality.

      Skill Challenge: OSL
      Try your hand at painting a miniature using OSL or Object-Source Lighting.  If you feel like this is something that is already in your wheelhouse, work on your technical skills in another area.  Practice NMM, TMM, wet-blending, sculpting, or anything else you've been meaning to try.

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

      Being that this is the figure that was the biggest reason why I picked up the Hassassin Bahram Sectorial Starter Pack (say that three times fast ), I was suspecting he'd wind up on my painting desk sooner or later...  I just didn't realize he'd have the honour of being the first finished this year, as well as my first finished Infinity miniature!
       

       
      At some point in the near future I'll acquire some S2 holoprojector tokens for him, as actual 3D representations are nice.  Not sure where from, but I like my current Art of War Studios things, so probably theirs.
       
      Oh, and for those who might be curious, that's a Global Evil Corp UniPod with two StairPods (well, one pack) in the first three pics, fourth one is a DuoPod with a StairPod alongside it.  Sadly no magnets yet for the terrain, but they're on the way, and will get here at some point

      So I was just about to check out my first Star Wars Legion game night at the lfgs when the whole apocalypse thing happened, so rather than painting my Imperials, I've been focusing on  getting my rebel scum assembled so that wife (who is "mostly" interested in playing) and I can learn to play here at home. With that complete I now need to get some more Imperials finished so we can actually play, since I'm not attaching bases to the Imperials until they are painted.
      As my wife actually agreed to play this weekend, that meant I needed a commander quick!  So I pulled up the FFG guide online to paint Vader and knocked out a decent tabletop in a couple of hours.
       

       
      Good enough and he already squeaked on a victory yesterday in our first game (he had one wound left).
      Now back to painting white armor to get more troopers ready.....sigh.
