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)

      I painted Devil Girl's clothing in Vallejo Black and thought, "God, that's boring". So I added 1/3 Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue to the black and redid her coat. Adding the blue makes the black much richer, and I washed the black over with Army Painter Blue Tone. Her skin was done with Vallejo Flat Red, Red and Vermillion. Her hair is black and drybrushed with Vallejo Royal Purple. The lava is Liquitex Modelling Paste and the slabs are just plasticard. Her eyes took FOREVER to get right, which was frustrating as hell as they're just yellow with a thin black line.
      The paint scheme and base are shamelessly ripped off this one by @TheOldGuard, although he/she can do OSL and I can't (and wasn't even going to attempt it).

      I am the Lord of Darkness.
      I require the solace of the shadows,
      and the dark of the night.
      Sunshine is my destroyer.
      All this shall change.
      Tonight, the sun sets forever
      There shall never be another dawn!
      thus begins the 1985 Fantasy movie Legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring a very young Tom Cruise and the excellent Tim Curry. If you have not seen this movie, do so right away. A classic Fantasy, in several ways.

      Here is my Kanjira. The pose of the monster made me think it could be a good idea too make it emerge through the Trees. A vision of Knightmare, for sure.
