He's talking about Pezler!

He hasn't had the pleasure of passing through a dragon before...maybe we should warn him?

That would be kind, thoughtful and the gentlemanly to do.....

 

but it IS Pezler, so .......

That's was too much fun, though I chose not to repeat the trip through any dragon's insides.  I had to get the stench dispelled off of me and have the same mage regenerate my sense of smell.

The base is turning out great Glitterwolf. I think the scene would look tighter keeping it at the current size, but agree you may need to make it bigger to deal with the water effects. 

 

Very cool so far.

Thank you!

I think I will try to keep it like this or just slightly bigger to prevent loss of focus on the Dragon.

Storytime.

 

 

***************

 

Archelon arrives!

 

Aboard of the Barracadu, negotiations took place.In the Captain's Cabin, Gonzales and Toni had just given their demands to Cerdo and Old Nedd.

Being defeated they had little to expect from Gonzales.

The Old Buccaneer however was realistic.

 

Look, he said, we have been allies, we have been enemies, in the end we all want the same, right?

We all want that treasure! We all want to get out of here alive!

Now! That fool Tomas has put you up to this and he is dead now!

You had to surrender to me and now what am I going to do with you?

Wouldn't it be better to pledge your allegiance to me?

 

I spared your lives until now because I do think we need each other to get that treasure, now don't make me regret the decision!

Cerdo leaned back in his chair, I'm a loyal servant of Her Majesty the Queen, he said.

You were part of this expedition and now you have turned into a pirate, you betrayed us all!

Do with me as you will! I regret nothing!

 

Gonzales sighed and nodded, and you? He asked turning to Old Nedd, you ARE a pirate.

Surely you can see things my way?

Your precious James has abandoned you and you're at my mercy, what is you decision?

 

Old Nedd, took a sip of his rum, Little Nedd had taken position on a wooden beam supporting the ceiling, Aye Aye Captain! The Macaw squealed.

Well? Gonzales repeated his question, together we can do this, will you once again join forces with me as a Captain of your ship?

What say you?

 

At the beach Sssllthr and the Transmuthor stood silent, watching the ships.

The Transmuthor petted the little raptor who had brought them the Frogking's answer, the little messenger had shown up two days ago.

Anytime now! Sssllthr said, he will come!

 

When he does we have to be ready, the Transmuthor said.

Yes, Sssllthr agreed, we will have to deal with any survivors, he looked behind him, the troops were waiting for orders.

Anyone that reaches the beach will be taken prisoner to serve as slaves, he said, those that put up too much of a fight will be killed!

I could use some fresh specimens, the Transmuthor said excited.

 

Gonzales waited for Old Nedd's answer.

How do I know if I can trust you? Old Nedd asked.

I haven't have you killed yet, Gonzales replied, even when you turned to me, I still sit here asking you to become my ally once more.

I'm willing to reconcile as long as you swear to never betray me again!

Old Nedd nodded, he reached out his hand, then I'm with you, he said, there's no use to continue this madness!

 

Gonzales smiled and shook Old Nedd's hand.

He turned to Cerdo, would you rethink your position? He asked, you still have a chance!

Cerdo refused, I serve the Queen!

 

I'm sorry to hear that, Gonzales said.

He nodded at Toni, prepare the plank!

Cerdo turned pale, then clenched his fists, I'll show you how to die with honour! Something you lack!

Gonzales waved at two pirates, take him to the upper deck!

 

They went to the upper deck, the crew watched how the plank was prepared for Cerdo.

Gonzales gave a small speech, Captain Old Nedd has decided to join us!

There shall be no more mutiny!

Yes, Mutiny! That's what has happened here, Gonzales said, however I forgive you all!

All you need to do, each and everyone of you will swear his allegiance to me!

For those who choose to oppose me, this is what will happen!

Captain Cerdo refuses to reconcile! 

Now he will face the consequences!

 

The assembled crew watched how Cerdo was escorted to the plank.

Cerdo looked at them, Any true soldier of the Queen will refuse to become a pirate, he said.

Now who is still loyal to Her Majesty?

The crew kept silent, a few men looked at the deck, but no one spoke.

I see! Cerdo said, he turned to Gonzales, do your thing! I no longer care!

 

Gonzales gestured at Toni, the First Mate now Captain of the Mule, pushed Cerdo forward to the plank.

For a moment Cerdo hesitated, then he took the first step, and the second, halfway on the plank he turned to Gonzales.

You'll pay for this one day! The Lord will punish you!

He turned around to take the final step to his watery grave when he saw it.

 

Her Majesty's Swordfish suddenly was hit by something, the ship exploded in a big cloud of wood, sails and dust.

He saw some sailors being tossed into the air and falling into the Sea.

Something huge rose up from the Sea and landed on the ship, sinking it instantly.

Cerdo's blood froze in his veins, what the...???

 

Sssllthr pointed at the ships, THERE! HE's HERE! He said to theTransmuthor.

STAND READY MEN! Be prepared to capture anyone who reaches land!

 

Gonzales couldn't believe his eyes, what was that?

The crew panicked, some fell to their knees praying, thinking that the Lord had responded to punish Gonzales.

Toni cursed, get up you fools! Man the cannons!

We need to defend ourselves.

Old Nedd looked at his ship going down, it happened so fast! What is that thing?

 

A huge shadow in the water headed towards the San Jose, the men aboard of the Barracuda ran to Starboard to watch it.

Cerdo was still standing on the plank, he weighed his options, unnoticed by the others, he was able to untie his hands.

He took a deep breath and jumped into the water, swimming for his life he headed for the beach.

 

Open the gunports! Gonzales yelled.

Fire upon that thing!!!

 

The few sailors aboard of the Jan Jose had noticed the Swordfish being destroyed and now they saw the shadow heading towards their ship.

A few men jumped overboard, hoping to reach the Barracuda, knowing their ship would be lost.

The others watched in horror how the creature approached the ship, a few men fired muskets, the bullets bounced off the thick shell of the creature.

It emerged from the water, a cannon was fired, even the cannonball did no harm.

 

A few seconds later Archelon rammed the ship, his armored skull crashed into the hull, upon withdrawing he left a huge hole and the ship started to take water.

Archelon attacked again, as with the Swordfish, he emerged from the water and simply landed on the deck of the ship, crushing the deck and sinking the ship through his weight.

His tail knocked the main mast over and in moments the Jan Jose submerged.

The enormous turtle like creature circled around the sinking ship, devouring the crew that tried to swim away.

 

The Barracuda opened fire, a volley was fired, Archelon submerged and evaded the cannonballs this way.

Gonzales trembled from fear and anger, Cut loose the Mule! He said to Toni, we need to flee!

Toni gave the order, the men worked frantically to cut loose the Mule while they saw the monstrous turtle heading their way.

Just in time, the Barracuda turned away and Archelon crashed into the Mule.

 

In a blur of wood, water, sails and cargo the Mule went under.

Gonzales yelled, throw everything overboard we don't need!

FULL SPEED!

Toni grabbed his arm, Captain! We won't make it!

Abandon the ship!

 

NEVER! Gonzales shouted.

Toni let him go, he turned around and the last thing he saw was Archelon's head, mouth wide open appearing over the railing.

Get the keg of gunpowder, put a fuse in it and light it, throw it down the Archelon's gullet. It's the only way!

 

 

They're gonna need a bigger boat!

 

Patience Wizard, who knows what will happen?

    • By Lord of the Dish Pit
      For the better part of this year, I've been going through something of a creative funk and it's been driving me a bit mad. (well more than usual anyway) So after thinking upon it for awhile, and taking the advice of the opening track of White Zombie's Astro Creep 2000, (Perhaps you'd better start at the beginning...) I've decided to embrace the madness....
      By the power vested in me by the Great Pumpkin I hereby declare it to be 1996. The world is a saner place and I've just gotten my mitts on the first minis that weren't part of a boxed set or boardgame and soon shall rise a mighty skeletal horde. (To those of you who may not have been alive in '96, fret not I have decided that you exist. Ia! Ia! Ingenti Cucurbia!)
      Anyway, first up are these guys.

      A Heartbreaker Miniatures Army Pack that I think might be Phil Lewis sculpts. Like all of my older metal Undead, they were given a bath in Simple Green awhile back. The original Undead army had been repainted several times over the years, not yet knowing about the wonders of the Green, they had several rather thick layers on them from this. So the decision to restart from a clean slate on the whole lot was quite easy.

      An Armorcast Ruined Mausoleum. Also painted several times, but I'm leery as to how the Green would react with the resin. But even with the new black undercoat, the detail isn't obscured that I can see. Now to find my Painting Flannel Of Necromancy...

      This is my second entry into the Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. I wanted to do this one because I love doing dragonman (dragonborn) conversions. There just aren't enough kinds of dragonmen to model for various character classes. And I'm glad that the catfolk minis came out within the last year because when I think about dragonmen, I like to see their clawed hands and feet, so it makes them great for such a conversion in my eyes.
       
      These were the minis used for parts, including pieces from the dragonman conversion kit: 03457.
       

       
      Poor Shadoweyes got her head and tail cut off.  Then I had to do some filing and filling to smooth out the cuts (particularly in the back because the tail was sculpted against the backs of the right leg and sword) and some of the fur pattern on her arms and legs. Also had to create small bit armor at the base of the tail so the pieces flowed together well. All Captain Razig lost was his hat and added a head and tail from the conversion kit.
       
      Originally, she was going to be green with dark purple/red armor.  But after I got the original base coats on, I felt she looked too much like a lizard and not a dragon, so I switched it up.
       

       

       

       
      She ended up being the winner.  I was shocked. I figured I might place, but pretty as she is, I didn't think this was one of my better pieces. But she was fun to do and I'm glad the Reaper folks put together this event.
       
      And now, because I still feel bad about chopping off Shadoweyes' head, I'm using a portion of the winnings to buy another one to paint!

      Well, I managed to fight my way back into hobbying...at least a little bit.  The wraiths were some of the minis I was anxious to get at, so I wasted no time.
       
      I thought about doing the expected (black and grey), but that left me uninspired.  So I thought about ROY-G-BV-ing them.  But I didn't have any OYs that I thought would be appropriate.  So I just muddled my way through.
       
      My apologies to Bob Ridolfi, your sculpts are wonderful and deserve better than what I can throw on them.
       

      The new wood paints were brought out to work the haft.  
      Muddy Soil served as the base for Bloodstain Red and Clotted Red
       

      Nightmare Black followed by Carbon Grey and Glacier Mist.  This was a little too close to the Blue Greys triad, I was hoping for something further off.
       

      The robes were started with Coal Black, and then hit with Peacock Green.  Brilliant Green finished them.  The tabard was started with Pure Black, followed with Stormy Grey, and then finished with Cloudy Grey.
       

      The robes were started with Pure Black, then followed up with Dark Elf Shadow and Dark Elf Skin.  This is one of my favorite combinations.
       

      I love the Blue Greys triad.  Midnight Blue, Twilight Blue, and then a 50/50 mix of Twilight Blue and Snow Shadow.  I think this is my favorite.
       

      I wanted a monument reminiscent of marble, so I started with Leather White, Pure White, and finished with Sparkling Snow.
      The robes were done with Regal Purple, Monarch Purple, and Royal Purple.  The difference is a little more obvious in person, but I was having troubles with the camera.

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead.
      This thread will be dedicated to all the beautiful female vampires/necromancers/ghosts and apparitions.
      I will also include all my Sophie minis..
       
      Here are the girls I have painted before to show what this is all about, soon more Undead / Evil Sisters will follow.
       
      EDIT - Changed the Name of the thread from the Alluring Death to Ladies of Death since not all are actually Undead.

      A litte surprise attack ( No WIP). A quick job , I painted her in 2 hours to try some stuff out.
       
      She's from Ironwind Metals ( Ral Partha) and she is a lookalike of Vampirella, only a "bit" more "developed".
       
      She might not be nude but she wears so little I decided to link the Pics ..because well she might as well be naked.
       
      I had fun painting her and I tried a marble green base, not sure if this worked out, but practice practice...right?
       
      Paints involved..The Reaper Vampire Skin Triad..Scale 75 Antares Red, Inktense Red, Chestnut Ink , Elven Gold, Decay Black and Deep Blue.
                                 Vallejo Dark Forest Green , Reaper Olive Green Triad.
