Did you hear that?
That, I just heard it again. Didn't you?
No, I didn't hear a th.. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....... Wait, yes I think I did.
Er, has any one got any rations left?.....
Theres a good boy, sit, siiiiiiiiiiiiit.
This is going to be one of the most ambitious projects I've ever attempted, so I thought making a WIP thread would be a good idea. If everything goes well, I plan to enter this beastie at ReaperCon this year, so fingers crossed!
This is an idea I've had bouncing around in my head for awhile, and started gathering materials for it last year.
My plan is to take this lovely critter:
and rather than using the shipwreck as a base, use half of one of these:
and paint the Kraken to look all spacey and such.
So! To that end, I now have one of these!
I'll just be using the top half for the base, though:
Which means that the bottom hemisphere is available for...testing.
These are the plastic Wyrd 20620 Wild Boars (Ulix). I picked them for a quick tabletop paint job. Unlike many of the Wyrd plastic minis these where easy to glue together.
May they eat many adventurers, but no more druids...
One of my early characters, a level one druid, was killed by a wild boar in the very first playing session after she failed her animal handling roll. In the decades since, any time I see see a nasty pig figure I say that is the one that killed my druid. So one of these nasty critters is surely the one!
Labella DeMornay, Banshee from the first Bones kickstarter, This is a green translucent, and like all translucents I undercoated it first with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish, so the following washes would have something to adhere to. This is key to painting translucents. Also, make sure to use transparent paints, like inks and quickshade washes. Opaque paints will invariably ruin the translucent effect. The green tinge of the plastic will affect any transparent colours that are used, and so this must be taken into consideration. For her brown hair, I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade (a dark red). The skin is Citadel Casandora Yellow Shade, the dress is old Citadel Blue glaze (red flip-cap hex pot) and ditto Turquoise glaze. Taking care to draw off any pooling and to avoid unsightly tide marks by smoothing with a damp brush while wet. The aim is to tint the translucent plastic, not sp much paint over it, or even "shade" it. Not sure how pleased I am with the results here. I think the results could have been much better if the plastic was clear not green tinged.
