Mini Ma'al: Bones Hydra with some modifications!

Recommended Posts

All I know about using greenstuff is that you have to keep your tools wet and hopefully also keep your fingerprints to yourself.

 

I think your creation will start to look better once it's even primed let alone painted.

I actually didn't end up needing any vaseline on my sculpting tools, because my GS is a bit on the stiff side (it's kind of old). Also, I did mix a wee bit of vaseline into the GS itself (a trick I picked up from I think Talespinner), which not only made the GS more likely to stick to itself and not to other things, but it also made it very easy to smooth it out with my tools. Aside from mixing it, I kept my fingers to myself, lol.

 

Thanks, I certainly hope so! ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Really wonderful work.  I think the wings not being exactly the same gives it more character.  The scales on the back and excellent!  Looking forward to seeing it come together!  ::wub::

Nice work!

Pushing putty, I have found, is like painting.

The more you do it, the better you get at it.....

 

I pushed some tonight to fill some gams my own self....

Ooh,ooh,ooh!! I know what you're doing!! I won't spoil the surprise though. (Especially for the correct cookie bribe ::P: )

 

That's a very nice conversion that you've done there, OneBoot. ::):

The next time you're trying to remove brown liner from an area where you want to glue, just use acetone-free nailpolish remover and a couple of Q-tips.

      So this is the first time I tried painting freehand on the shield  This is the end result of the conversion: 
       

       
      And for the conversion part, I didn't like neither this minis pose, nor its weapon choice (pickaxe really???), nor its commie looking (???) sigil on the shield. So I removed the weapon and sanded the shield. I also think that his pose looks a lot more natural as a spear throw than a pickaxe swing.. Also gave him some simple terrain and a quick paint  Thanks for looking!

      Gave this model a different arm and hand pose, sculpted a wooden stick and used a resin bit from avatars of war necromancer for the spear head. This was a speedpaint that took probably around an hour. Thanks for looking!

      Finished up the Dark Heaven Sidrith Sword Sister and am happy with the results though I am also thankful for the size creep in mini's over the years as it was really hard to try and do detail work. I'm very happy with the eyes and once again the new Heartwood Brown is becoming my fav for Leather; just base coat it and add a sepia wash and it's 90% done. the only complaint with the mini is that the sword hilt holding hand hands back is really lumpy and it's hard to tell what was hand, hilt or crossguard.

      This is my most ambitious attempt to date.  A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes.  I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989.  That’s a whopping 37 figures.  I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses per faction possible.  The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction.  The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green).  Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification.  Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all.
       
      And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)!
       
      Wish me luck!
