Lost World Project Glitterwolf Paints Coldblooded Creatures and Conquistadores

Recommended Posts

Hahaha!!

 

I was wondering if you were planning on doing any natives and/or foreign invaders, but I hadn't wanted to ask; I didn't want to give you a bunch of (probably expensive) ideas.

 

For now I will not.. first I will paint the 20 Dino/lizzy/Snakethingies and assorted jungle Mammals/Terrorbirds I have.

 

When the story unfolds I will probably add some characters in the mix, should I find some suitable minis.

The Lost world is not a tribe...It's a world.

 

OMG what have I done? :blink:

Who knows where this will lead me.

...they told me, when I had reached the end of my historical stuff & started painting Fantasy, you only need to paint a few miniature for the game (D&D, AD&D). Thousands of miniatures & nearly forty years later I still have more minis to paint...& some on the way. Just enjoy the painting & don;t worry where it will lead you...it's more exciting that way.

 

 

Thx Al,

 

Maybe it wasn't such a smart move to create a lost continent in my fantasy...but I guess i will have fun..

Nonsense, it was an excellent idea! Having fun is the whole point, remember? ::D:

 

It is..it is...

However, I have a lot of ideas and projects.

 

So here I was thinking to paint "some" reptiles. ended up with 20 ( and then some) reptilians, trying to get my hands on more Terrorbirds..( because cool!) and now I'm already searching for Conquistadores, Tupis, Aztecs and such..

 

And I haven't even started my Undead and Chaos projects...(do I want to paint Cpt. Gonzales and his crew too? OMG... :zombie: )

 

I will now ritually murder my wallet and sacrifice my creditcard.. Sorry girls no vacation this year, daddy needs more minis which he will paint next year, when he gets to it...now YOU girls spend your money wisely!

I know the feeling. :upside:

 

If it helps at all, you're kinda inspiring me to do the same thing...

Not the same content, though.

While the paint dries the story continues.

 

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

 

Sssllthr had hid himself in a tree.

He was in doubt, he had been observing the village for a week now.

It seemed the paler Softskins and the villagers were now friends.

They even seemed to begin understanding each other's language.

 

Should he stay and observe longer, maybe eliminate a few Softskins?

Or should he inform the Citadel?

Seeing a few villagers heading his way with dogs, he decided.

 

Quickly he crawled down and hurried away.

To the Citadel!.

 

***********

 

In the Village Martinez was getting restless, it was great that Tlacaelel and his group were friends now.

But he still needed to catch up with his brother.

Another week had passed.

At this rate his brother might have already sacked the Golden City without him.

 

Fillippa was talking to Mitla.

It seemed they liked each other.

 

Mitla told Fillippa about the history of their land.

She told him the Jungle was enormous, but that there are stories about other lands beyond the Jungle.

However she had never seen the end of the Jungle aside from the beach were Fillippa had come from.

 

In the beginning there were only animals. Many creatures of all sorts roamed the Jungle.

And some of those ancient creatures still do, she said.

Most of those are stupid, but they are a few species that possess some sort of intellect.

When one could find an egg and trained the hatchling from the start, these beasts could be tamed.

 

She told Fillippa that in the early days of civilization there were different tribes, sometimes trading sometimes at war.

There were Human tribes, Reptilian and Amphibian tribes, but also some smaller groups of intelligent beastmen of other sorts.

 

At a certain moment the Lizardmen tribe founded a religion. The Cult of the Living Lizard God rapidly spread it's influence.

Basically it told all Reptilians and Amphibians that they were brothers and should no longer wage war against each other.

Mammals and Humans were lesser creatures.

Only those who were willing to serve the Living Lizard God had a place in the new order.

 

From that time on war between the Humans and the followers of the Living Lizard God broke out.

Some Human tribes allied with the Lizards, serving the Lizard God as their own.

They were left in peace, as long as they payed tribute to the Citadel.

So every new moon, the Lizards and Snakes came to those villages to collect.

They were given criminals to serve as slaves or food.

Later when there weren't enough criminals anymore, the villagers started to hand over their elderly and disabled people.

When those weren't enough anymore, the Lizards brought priests with them who then selected the tribute by a ritual.

 

The defying humans waged war.

Some were reasonably succesful others perished soon under the might of the Scaly Horde.

 

The power of the Cult of the Living Lizard God grew. They founded a large Citadel where the priests ruled.

Their goal was to summon the Living Lizard God and that would mean the end of all lesser creatures.

Rumours said that they were on the brink of achieving this.

 

Tlacaelel had been succesful for years, they broke up their camp or left their village if things got to dangerous and would simply go further into the Jungle to found a new one.

In the meantime his warriors had learned how to set traps and ambush the Lizards, Snakes and Frogmen.

It was a harsh life.

 

One day, when they had abandoned another one of their settlements, they stumbled upon a ruin.

Here Mitla had found the scroll and in that ruin she had become aware of her powers.

She was a Witch, she could sense things others could not, and she was able to control lesser animals.

Her powers were still growing, and she told Fillippa she was sometimes afraid of what she might become.

 

Meeting Fillippa and the men was an omen she said.

And she touched his big red beard again.

But some of the others have a beard he said, it is our custom.

 

Yes, said Mitla, but your's is red while all others have dark hair.

This is a sign. You have seen the scroll.

You will slay the enemy and set us free!!!

 

***********

 

Martinez walked up to Tlacaelel.

He needed to talk about leaving to the Golden City.

Thx Al,

 

Happy you like it.

 

I use Nature as a reference and then artistic freedom to try to make interesting patterns.

 

I started out doing the Stone Axe as Knarthex does his stonework, in the end I kept adding green to give a kinda Malachite feeling.
