Lidless Eye Hobbies: Ajaxxus Skiotho 5.0 (Tiefling Barbarian)

Recommended Posts

After some final sealer, Ajaxxus 5.0, Tiefling Barbarian, is ready to hit the dungeons!

I'm not sure why he wound up so shiny in these photos, he's not glossy in person.

Hanging out with Sir Forscale to show his reduced stature from earlier versions:

I have a WiP thread of the conversion process here:

Hopefully I'll get to play in a game rather than run one soon and be able to use him again!

Thanks, all!

This is one of the sculpts I've been happiest with so far.  I was going to try to do the head up entirely from scratch, but found it easier to carve and rebuild around the existing Warhammer Chaos head.  I think I'm going to experiment with doing some Giant heads entirely from green stuff, then work my way down.

Cool!

 

...exactly my reaction. The Little Rogue brings Hell Boy to mind...it may be the cigar. GREAT WORK!

 

 

The original sketch was more Warcraft Draenei inspired than Hellboy, but when I added the cigar he wound up leaning way more Hellboy.  I was going to try to give him an earthier clay-red skin tone to try to avoid that, but I'm happy with how it came out:

      This guy as it turns out can be disassemble into pieces!
      Win for me, because I hate detailed undercuts.
       
      And I do not like the staff (fish/dragon)head.
      Does not fit the character imo.
      The red squiggly turned out verynice!
       
      FINISHED here!

      So my fellow players wanted to get Hero Forge custom characters, and as the only painter in the group I did them up. The bard was in metal, the other two in resin. My goodness are the surfaces rough and the detail shallow! I was a bit embarrassed to hand them over, but they really liked them - it was super important that the figure was exactly the design they wanted. It was an interesting bit of calibration for me and how to enjoy the imperfect. I think the barbarian came out the best and my favorite bit to paint was the violin.

      My next project is another ranger. I already have a cool male elf ranger, but thought it might be nice to add a female version. So going through the Bones minis I came across Nienna.
       
      Unfortunately her face detail was very shallow and detail was overall a bit hit and miss. I love the pose, though.
       
      Out comes the scalpel, greenstuff and bitz box.
       
      Two evening sessions later I swapped the head and weapon, shaved away some of the front detail and resculpted the area.
       
      I am not entirely finished yet, but soon I can establish the base colours.

      Ok lets talk about this mini. 

       
      I got it two years ago in the Legend of Drizzt boxed game and just never use it. Why? Because it just looks weird for a dwarf and it is overall lacking if that makes sense. But I believe it has potential to look pretty cool and become one of my favourite minis. This isn't the first time that I dislike and convert a Wizkids "hero" mini but this conversion will be the most drastic so far.
       
      So lets begin. First of all, the thing that bugs me the most are Athrogates flails. I've found some artwork online and here's how they could look like:

       
      And, if you take a look at the first image above, they look like a pair of maracas:

       
      This obviously means that I have to do a weapon swap. I will also change his hand position to make the pose more intimidating.
       
      The second thing that i dislike is his spiked armor, it is supposed to look cool I guess but to me those spikes resemble crystals and it just looks super weird to me (kinda like the dark souls crystal armor) and doesn't go with the overall vibe of the mini

       
      That means I will also remove the spikes from his helmet, shoulder armor and boots and make them look different and hopefully better.
       
      I'm sorry for a long post, and I will keep you updated. Thanks for looking!
