Band of Meddling Heroes - Steampunk Oz - Daughter's Birthday Present 2017 - A Thrym WIP #0Z18

Recommended Posts

I bought the Steampunk Wizard of Oz set for my daughter out of the Bones 3 KS.

 

Naturally, I am doing it last minute for her birthday Tuesday, the 18th.

 

So, here's the plan:

 

A.

Assemble them all on unfinished but sealed silver maple wood cuts using usual building materials.

 

B.

Basecoat them with simple but muted colors.

 

C.

Apply Sepia Wash and paint as needed to simulate a "colorized movie" look.

 

Here's what we got so far:

Dorothy and Toto on a Compass Rose beginning their adventure.  The witch commanding her monkey.

Dorothy glued in and brick road applied.

Lion and brick road applied.

 

Enjoy and stay tuned.  More to come.

I was fortunate to get this set off ebay last week for a decent price (hopefully if someone takes my offer, I'll have the whole core set and another set of the wizard of Oz). Love how you are setting them up so far, your daughter should be very happy with them.

Tinman.thumb.jpg.3b21c6e6990576077eaf3aaf7b453fbe.jpg

Tinman construct added to his base.

 

That just leaves his buddy, Scarecrow and Glinda (played by Dita, the Steampunk Witch).

 

Enjoy and Stay tuned!

Trimmed bases off Scarecrow and Glinda and added them to their bases.

Added some ballast to the minis missing it and finished priming most of them ... Scarecrow needed his edges trimmed and the green stuff was still setting.

 

Added a smokey / snowy couple of paths over the rocks on the Wicked Witch's base.  Not sure which direction it will finish.

 

The ballast will likely get a wash but not get much else in the way of paint.

Enjoy and Stay tuned.

ROLLIN', ROLLIN', ROLLIN'

 

Put the first basecoats on ... Skintones.

Elf Flesh on Dorothy and Glinda because they are going to darken.

 

A mix of Vallejo Sunny Skinetone and Reaper Palomino Gold for the Scarecrow and Lion.

 

The Wicked Witch and her smokey fog got a coat of Army Painter's "Lust" from their Others Deadly Sins series.

 

The Smokey Fog:

... is thin super glue used with Super Glue Filler.  I blow in the filler along the rocks, etc. and then add the glue.  The glue follows the filler.  Dries clear or whitish depending on how much filler there is.  The Lust paint is very thin going on here.

      "If ever you chance to go to the woods
      Be sure that you go by day,
      Or the Spindly Man with his long thin arms
      Will spindle you clean away."

      Scarecrows. The purpose is to inspire fear. For crows, the idea is that it looks like a human. 
      For people, the issue is that it doesn't quite. 

      Gauntfield is a truly horrific sculpt. For one, scale creep aside, he's very tall. Over eight foot in scale, if I were to judge. For another, his hands are way too big, coming down to knee level. And those hands are clutching a sack full of bones. That's a red flag. Oh, and he's a reanimated skeleton with a jack-o-lantern sack mask. That sadistic grin! the flapping tatters! The sculptor is very like Gauntfield himself, in that they are both...

      ...outstanding in their field.

      "When it comes to SURPRISES in the moonlit night..."


      A Bombshell promotion netted me this Autumn the Scarecrone. Less overtly skeletal, but still a construct of cloth and straw given malign, shambling life and carrying a sickle. Tatterdemalion, rag-tag, hobbledehoy. 

      The crow on her hat is a nice touch.

      Her paint job and color scheme are loosely inspired by Sally from "NIghtmare Before Christmas."

      Bonus: Bombshell's Pumpkin Pal!

      Painted this for a friend's group. Their party acquired a dog they love so much that they spent all their gold to armor him up. He now has the highest AC in the party.

      B:GCC - Mission 11 "Major Gas Madness" has Scarecrow as the major villain to beat.  You need to find his toxin formula and escape before you croak.  There is a lot of deadly gas about (surprise) so you need to be careful.  There were no new heroes to paint in this mission, so I painted up a set of thugs instead.  
       
      Scarecrow and Hazmat Thugs

       
       
      Not the Scarecrow I'm familiar with, but a cool one nonetheless.  Fairly easy to paint, although sometimes the paint seemed to not want to stick to some difficult to reach areas.  
       
       
      I thought Hazmat Thugs would be a nice combo to paint up with Scarecrow.  I was debating on what to do with the area of plastic between the strap and the gun.  Do I paint it black?  Or light blue?  or white?  Or yellow?  In the end I decided that these guys were minions so who cares.  Black was the least amount of work and looks good enough for what they are on the table for.

      Presenting Pigsy, part of the Guild of Harmony faction from the game Twisted.
       
      Had a lot of fun painting this one, I was originally a bit worried by all the little details and layers of clothing but it wasn't a problem.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Sir Guinemar the Righteous takes his loyal pooch Worral with him on all his adventures. Worral is a good companion, a devoted friend and useful for catching rabbits. He wears a jaunty hat with a feather in it because Sir Guinemar discovered that it makes his doggo an absolute babe magnet.

      After years of searching, Sir Guinemar finally found the legendary lost treasure of Lord Nicholai Brevil, reputedly the wealthiest man in the five kingdoms, in the ruins of Aeckland Castle. After giving a quick prayer of thanks, Sir Guinemar heard a noise somewhere in the dungeon and went to check it out, leaving Worral to guard the hoard of gold, silver and gemstones.
       
      That was 30 minutes ago.
       
      Worral has just noticed that Sir Guinemar forgot his sword.
       
      (Treasure chest by Debris of War; doggo by RBJ Games; sword by Reaper. And if you could find it in your hearts to ignore the fingerprints in the greenstuff flagstones, that would be great.)
