77356 / 77357 / 77358 / 77359: 28 Anhurians!

Recommended Posts

This makes me want more Anhurians.  I love that part of the line.  Metal AND bones are awesome. 

 

Your work on the armor and the freehand on the shields is amazing (I'm lucky when I get a THICK line to look right, you did a really good job!). 

 

I love how each scheme really makes them stand apart, even though they are exactly the same figure. I'll also note the Basius stamp looks really good with them.

 

I think it's safe to say I like your work and how you thought about the basing.

 I love these guys, they're so ridiculously versatile - they can be good guys or bad guys (depending on the color scheme), soldiers or town guards...

 

 Before I sold off a lot of my minis, between these guys and the Black Legionnaires I had enough "bad guys" to put a small army on the table, all painted up in black and purple...

Howdy,

 

   My compliments on the diversity! Skin, livery, and shield art... That yellow is a bit bright though... Mayors own "show" troops?

 

Kev!

YYYYEEEEAAAAAAHHHHH!!!

 

If you're wondering why I'm excited, it's because I was part of the tag team that cornered Ron and browbeat... uh... I mean passionately campaigned for the Boneshurians so I like to see people having fun with them.

 

You did us proud.  You may also enjoy painting 20 or so Mountain Trolls.  Then I can get Ron to listen to my suggestions without having to torture-melt his final shreds of sanity with Polkaroo YouTube clips.

Aww thanks I'm blushing  :blush: The basius turned out really well. And making the broccoli under their feet into little mini-pins worked also. They aren't technically pinned or anything and seem very stable (sometimes bones and milliput don't always agree without a little help).

Thanks! As for the diversity, it was important to the mayor that his town guardsmen represent the diverse community that they serve *cough*. Yes that yellow is a bit bright. My soft yellow looks a little orange-y. They are nice for standing out though. Maybe the parade troops?

Thanks I owe you one! Love these guys (hence why I obtained so many). I think I have only 2 or 3 of the trolls, and I will probably try to avoid big group paints like this for a while though, it can be kind of draining.

 

It is incredibly gratifying to get so much feedback though, I'm glad everyone liked them, hopefully this will inspire others with their Anhurians!

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
       
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.
       


       
      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
       
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...
       



       
      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.
       


       
      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      This was a repaint from earlier this year. I bought Quickshade Strong Tone for speed painting some of my board games and tried it in Woody. I liked the way it worked for the most part but as you can tell I got some frosting when I matte coated it. Another thing that happened was my paint cracked on my base but I kinda like the way it looks. I probably won't bother fixing any of the issues as I moved on to another figure I am struggling with.

      Fun and quick one for RCL new release. Have been aiming for a more dull/gritty looks wtih a lot of my recent figures.

      Back in November I posted over on the Conversion WIP sub-forum about a mounted figure I was making using the Bones 4 Giant Rhinoceros Beetle and the Mudcroak Squog figure: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93699-frog-riding-beetle-conversion/
       
      This past week I finally got around to painting the converted figure, and I  wanted to share the results.

      It's a cougar!  Specifically it's a firepelt cougar, from the world of Golarion (Pathfinder RPG).
      It's also my submission for the Reaper Challenge League under the January theme of "Ice or Fire".
      Pathfinder authors have described firepelts as having black-and-red or "autumnal" coloration, but I know of only one image in a Paizo book: the 5th anniversary book of Rise of the Runelords shows one as mostly black with thin orange stripes running down its back and orange rings on its tail.  I used that as a point of departure, plus extra reference in the form of photos of cougars, and photos of rare recessive-gene "king cheetahs" that have stripes and large blotchy spots instead of the usual small round spots.
      I cut away parts of this guy's integral base, and sculpted a grouping of rocks that the cougar is descending.
       

       

       

       
      Enjoy!
