Maledrakh's Minivember #22: It's a-Me, Mario!

Recommended Posts

For Minivember I will try to do a different model each day (duplicates or similar models (from the same unit or suchlike still only count as one!).


If you want to see the rest of my minivember minis, feel free to have a look at my painting blog..I won't be posting each and every one here, just the Reaper minis and maybe some that I find especially interesting. Yes, they will be speedpaints, just like all my minis.


 


 


After recently painting the Hasslefree Agarix mushroom menI have been thinking which minis I have that might fit a Mario-theme.


 


There are some, the Bones Dragon Turtle and the Turtlemen (whatever they are called) do spring to mind.


 


But what Mario-themes selection of minis would be complete without Mario himself?

Nice!

 

( Bones Tortoise Dragon might make a mighty fine Bowser!)

 

Good work on Mario, and I agree about the Tortoise Dragon making a good bowser, the shell back looks just about right for the King of Koopas.  I'd recommend some GS work to make his head and tail right, but otherwise you could leave it as-is.

Excellent!

 

I agree with the tortoise dragon as a bowser. Probably a good princess peach somewhere I can't think of.

 

03159: Aeslin, 1/2 Elf Wizardess is my first choice.  A little work on the staff and a little crown, and BAM she's there.

      This minis was a kickstarter exclusive from the Mantic Kings of War second edition campaign in 2014.
      "Blaine" is a Mantic mascot of sorts. and there has been a version of him in all their own IP kickstarters apart from the vey first Kings of War. So here is him as the Fantasy Tyrant King.
       

      A resin special mini, there were some problems with delivery and I heard several backers never got their Blaine for some reason or other.
      I have not really had any delivery problems to speak of from any of the many Mantic kickstarters I have backed, and I obviosly got my Blaine with my shipment at the time.
       
      I used a bespoke 3D printed 25x50mm oval base, In retrospect I probably should have gone with a slightly larger base as it does seem a little small.
       

      This picture illustrates the smaller Mantic truscale as opposed to the larger Reaper heroic scale.

      Back in 2013 I came across a kickstarter campaign called "Heroes of the Dwarfs" by a small start up company called Oathsworn. The creator sculpted the models himself, and the greens on display were very oldhammery and full of character. I went in for a massive three minis, being a bit cautious at the time, what with this being a new company and all.
      They delivered in a timely fashion, the minis were great quality, and I have backed 13 out of 14 of Oathsworns campaigns since then. They continue to crank out the good stuff. They are on my short list of trusted creators, A+ will back again.
       

      Ingrid Deathseeker is basically your female beardless Trollslayer.
       
      I used one of my bespoke 3D printed 25mm round lipped bases for her.

      From the second Bones kickstarter, the Sea Hag:

      A very simple but effective paint job. I started with a black undercoat with a heavy-ish light grey zenithal primer on. I slapped some Vallejo Nocturna Natural Flesh on the lower rags and Scale75 Arbuckles Brown on the top rags. Then I sloshed CItadel Athonian Camoshade all over it, drawing off most pooling to avoid those tidemarks. Very light drybrysh with Vallejo Nocturna Cold Flesh when dry.
      The hair got a coat of Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh followed by Army Painter Dark Tone Quickshade Ink. Eyes get a dot of Citadel Wazdakka Red followed by a smaller dot of Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow.
      Base and done.
      Even though this mini is billed as a Sea Hag and she does have a slight fishy look about her, I am thinking she will be joining my Ghoul army as some sort of subleader.
