The second Giant Snake from the Artisan Guild set.
3D Printed on my Elegoo Mars.
I was inspired by the African Bush Viper.
Added extra pics taken indoors after applying antishine varnish below.
And another Shadowrun figure, the third figure from what was originally a three piece set of Elven subtypes.
This dapper gentleman is a Wakyambi, which from what I read on line (haven't ever actually ever played Shadowrun or own any of the gaming books), he's an African Elf Subtype, tall and thin. He was fun to paint, but his dingly dangly stuff eventually just made me cry for mercy in the hopes I would someday finish. His necklace and his little staff had quite a bit of details to it, as well has his funky monkey belt buckle.
and here is the set in its entirety, not completely great focus, but it's hard to get three figures to focus nicely:
So three more finished, I wonder how many more I can get done before I go to the great beyond? Hopefully 50 or more per year for another thirty to forty years, but we'll see....
Hello to all you bovine aficionados!
So a while back ago I did a normal minotaur, Greek-type mythological beast with an axe on two legs. This one is a little different, it's a Shadowrun Minotaur which has a bull's body and a "primate" face. I think Jim Johnson sculpted it back in the nineties, as usual forgot to check for a date on the bottom. Pretty straight forwards colors, and it's actually kind of a big and heavy model. Put him on an oval base because there was no way he was going to fit on a normal size circle one:
Anyhoos, hope you guys all enjoy him!
Hello there fine followers of the fine Reaper faith and Happy Fourth of July for those in Gringolandia!
So here is my Shadowrun Dryad, made by Ral Partha, probably sculpted by Jim Johnson in 1996 if you choose to believe the bottom of the base, and I do.
I did her the same time I did the Night Elf I also just recently posted, but one of the eyes on this green haired chicky poo, I just couldn't get it like I wanted to, so I went back and redid the eye, and I still didn't like it, so this is the third version, which I'm also not super duper satisfied with, but there comes a point when I just give up to move to the next small piece of metal.
So here she is:
and here is a close up of her eyes. Her left one hs that spoke that I just didn't get closed properly. From really close it's very noticeable, but only kind of noticeable from afar and I really couldn't tell with the actual figure, only with the zoom of modern technology. I never had these issues back in the eighties.
Anyway, I like some of these Shadowrun figures, because besides being just generally cool, they kind of cross two genres. This one and the other night elf, could easily be fantasy figures, nothing really would orient them to actual science fiction.
So back to the painting table! Enjoy your Independence Day, or in the rest of the world, Saturday!
So, I recently purchased the "Nolzur's Marvelous Pigments Monsters Paint Set". Came with a bunch of Army Painter washes and paints and yadda yadda yadda...
But it also came with this neat Owlbear mini, which is what I have to share with you guys today!
First eyes I ever successfully painted. But in my defense, I'd only ever tried on minis with smallish eyes, which was NOT the brightest idea I'd ever had. The left eye turned out really good in my opinion, but the right one was a bit messy.
I also need to do so me touch-up work on the base. I got a bit careless with the wash, and uh... Yeeeeah.
Lastly and leastly, I didn't upload an outdoor picture as I usually do. That'll probably come later, provided I don't forget.
