New Movie with Baba Yaga and Her Hut

Recommended Posts

Ok, just came across this bizarre trailer on Youtube of  Russian Fantasy Movie produced by Disney.  I think it's a real thing, at least according to this Hollywood reporter article:   http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/disney-russia-local-language-movies-885954

 

 

Anyway if you want to see Baba Yaga in her flying mortar, plus a great shot of her hut running, check it out...

Aww yeah!  I'm a fan of Ivan Bilibin's illustrations, and I've read up on a number of Russian and Slavic fairy tales -- particularly for my Khador-focused "Iron Kingdoms" campaign.  I wish for at least cameo appearances by the Grey Wolf, the Fire Bird, and Baba Yaga's Three Horsemen.  (Maybe even a Rusalka?)

Ok, not crazy about the Disney connection but this is on my watch list. Like me some russki skazki. We've already got a collection of films and cartoons from soviet stuff to current. If this doesn't totally suck it'll fit in.

When I looked up this film it mentioned an older one by Disney called Kniga Masterov (book of masters). I found it online and me and the wife watched some of it tonight. It's kind of interesting in style. Part of it almost feels like LOTR and part of it is like a soviet film from the 70s. It's based on a fairy tale called The Stone Flower. I have an old version of that story on DVD but it doesn't work so I've never seen the whole thing. The drawback of buying dvds with dozens of movies on them back when I was tramping around Russia.

... I feel like I need to see this movie. Preferably with subtitles, but I'm not picky.

 

 

I'm exactly the same.

      #96 Baba Yaga:

      Baba Yaga, the Evil Witch of Slavic folklore, flying around in her Mortar, wielding her Pestle. Or maybe it's a massive Q-tip to clean out the ears of her chicken-legged dancing hut?
      I made a 25x35mm oval base and drilled a hole in the bottom of the mortar. I unbent a paperclip slightly and bent the long bit at an angle, and glued the end in the hole. The rest of the paperclip was glued flat on the base and lo! A flying mortar. I glued Baba Yaga herself down at an angle to make her looking more like she was sitting comfortably rather than squatting  precariously. I am pleased with how the angles match up to make her look straight ahead.
      So now she can be, say, a mounted necromancer or other kind of wizard.
      In the KS this model was represented by a concept drawing, and the sculptor has done a good job of realising it.
      Regretfully, I did not get her Dancing Hut from the KS.

      Kickstarter for a Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers inspired movie, "Netflix-y" in production value and style. Jason David Frank is headlining, and we all know that the Green Ranger/White Ranger is the best Ranger. Figured there's a good chance that there's some MMPR fans in the Reaper community, wanted to get the word out.

      This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;) 
       
      I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.
