77230: Ankheg : Hellbug

Recommended Posts

I agree with the multi colored lupine fellow above me. I was going to say I really dig that rusty red but he beat me to it! I still like it though!

my players were impressed as well.  They dispatched this beast handily, and its flying friend (chasmene figure) 

then nearly got eaten alive by kobolds.

The red between the scales really makes this figure!

 

I know i am too late to the party as he is already dead, but you asked for advice on what to fix -

 

The white pincers and claws make the mini look unfinished - something else here - deep yellow perhaps - or call back to the red between the scales

 

green eyes are cool, but lack depth - you might try darker green around the outside and then maybe a transparent green over the whole thing

 

those two things would make the mini a LOT scarrier

Very nice paintjob; looks like a proper hell-bug to me.

I agree with kitenerd.

I can't tell for certain, but is there primer/bones material showing through in a few spots? (near the claw on the bottom left arm for one)

Thanks for the suggestions.  I changed the eyes patched some white spots, and intensified the red.  I also added a brown wash to the claws, and added a tan transition (not very visible from pictures)
