77451 Invisible Cleric

Recommended Posts

Cleric? All I'm seeing is a hex grid, I mean it's a very nice looking hex grid and all, but I thought were suppose to show miniatures in this forum.

I like the deep blue on the Wizard, but for an invisibility effect I think you're right, the Cleric looks cleaner.  Very cool!

I agree.

Very nice.  Have you tried drybrushing that mix just on the edges?  In my minds eye it gives a neat effect and such imaginings occupy the voices for a bit.... : )

I haven't tried it, but I'm not sure how well it would work using the current gloss sealer formula.  To achieve any definition, the mix needs to pool in various places.  On raised or flat surfaces, it's a pretty weak color shift.  For drybrushing, I think the results would be better using a light shade of opaque paint.

UPDATE:

Just a quick note.  Since this was my first time playing with the transparent minis, along with using the Liquitex inks, I ran an experiment.  The cleric spent the last year (along with a ranger friend who was meant to be green but came out looking like she bathed in mouthwash -- I named her Listerina of Freshburst Forrest) on my bookshelf while the wizard was sealed in a small plastic box, sandwiched between layers of that foam rubber used in some blister packs.  Outgassing didn't seem to be an issue.  No tackiness or anything.  The finish on both groups feels smooth and solid.  Additionally, I didn't note any change in the color of the inks.  If there's any change in the color over time, it's likely to take years to be noticeable.

 

So, yeah, TLDR; this method works for me and I'll be using it on other transparent minis in the future.  Only thing I might change is that I might try doing some lining with a darker shade to bring out certain details before staining the whole figure.

      From Bones 3: Gug

      "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."

      From Bones 3, the Werearmadillo

      Obviously, lycanthropy has spread too far...and this is a reminder that Reaper are from Texas, where armadillos are native and as I understand it, seen as pests. I would really like to know how the sales figures for this model compares to other lycanthropes.

      I have a series of vignette's I'm planning that all feature ogres in amusing scenes with townsfolk. The first of this series is here.
      With this one I imagined the young milk maid is taking her boyfriend home to meet the parents for the first time. The boyfriend, wanting to put on a good first impression has worn his best striped collar and matching belt, as well as brought his best skulls.
      He's a bit nervous so she's trying to reassure him. "Don't worry... Mom is going to love you."
      She doesn't say anything about dad, though...
      Any critique and criticism is always welcome.
