Bones Goremaw :: The Blue Worm of Markshire :: Thrym WIP # BananaOreos

Recommended Posts

As usual, here's another project started ... this, along with some other stuff I will be posting { *insert future time code* } once I have made a bit more progress on them, are part of ...

As some of you may have seen, Goremaw has been sitting on my desk since we moved in and I received my Bones 3 order.

I recently received another Kickstarter order that started me down my Holiday Vacation path ... Stonehaven's Giants and Stonehaven's Adventurers.  I received 11 new giants to add to the Joten horde.  At the last Paint Day, I cleaned all eleven resin minis and then the following day I based them all and finished prepping them by priming them with my Armor Spray Primer.  Six of them were primed black for a dark starting point and 5 were primed white.

 

I also wanted to work on the base for my Reaper Fire Giant Jailor from Bones 3.  He was "assembled" but wouldn't stay standing on his base very well on my desk.  Keep an eye out for his WIP.

 

That inevitably led to Goremaw getting his base suped up and his minor gaps filled.

 

Goremaw

 

No, that's not sugar ... just cheap (clearance) sand.  There are two grades of sand on there.  The red is like sugar crystals.  The darker brown around the base is actual Virginia sand from the beach near Yorktown.  It filled in over the red sand and makes a more earthy surface than the "pebbles" the red sand will be.

 

The whole thing is sealed with Testor's Dullcote to allow me to spray the Primer on it.

 

Goremaw Primed

 

As you can see the cracks in the bark make for excellent rocks.  The pink from the sand will come into play a bit when I incorporate the blue from the Timeless Desert.

 

Oh, right, I haven't explained my Blue Work of Markshire.

 

Markshire is my PnP campaign world and was a Neverwinter Nights (video game) persistent world for a bit.

 

The Blue Worms are rare monsters that inhabit the Timeless Desert.  A frozen wasteland that used to be a vast grassland.

 

You can read more about Markshire and specifically the Timeless Desert on my Markshire.com website.

 

Here's a screenshot from the game area:

 

Timeless Desert

 

Intentions for Goremaw:

 

  • Blue Hide with lighter blue, almost white Ridges.  Blue similar to the Horizon in the pic above.
  • The Spines on the body will be darker colored.  Not sure if it will be a blue or perhaps a black like a claw.
  • The mandibles will be purplish color, closer to mauve.
  • The fangs will be bright white at the points and duller near the mandibles.
  • The inner mouth will be more classic red coloring
  • The belly will be a lighter blue tinged with a pink/purple for the softer tissue
  • The sand will reflect the twilight blue of the desert pictured above, which is why the red will help bring in some depth of color.
  • The stones will all be granite and similar in coloring

 

There you have it.  The start of the Holiday Vacation Series '17.

 

Oh, yeah, you may be wonder what I mean by "Holiday Vacation Series" ... well, I have 8 days of vacation left and two large holidays.  I simply don't have the means to take two the time in one large vacation.  So I've scheduled myself to be off 4 Mondays prior to my usual Christmas week vacation between Christmas day and New Year's day.  By far the SLOWEST week of our year.  So, technically, this gives me ... does the math ... a lot of days off.  We close for Thanksgiving and Black Friday.  Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve are also paid holidays.  But, what exactly am I going to be doing with this series ... nothing specific.  I am just trying to keep myself motivated and you all excited for the next post.

 

Stay tuned and Enjoy

I still kick myself for not getting one (or 3!) of these...  Pulling up a chair to enjoy the show! 

 

Steals some of Glitterwolf's cheese!

This is gonna be cool!!

 

Goremaw is probably my favorite Bones sculpt beside Khanjira (I have a thing for kaijus).  I just wish I had one of either!

Post Thanksgiving dinner lining has begun.

 

I am using Reaper Ritterlich Blue as the liner.

Brought out Goremaw today and am deciding what color for the underbelly flesh.

 

Possible choices are what I have in the blue-violet color ranges:

Links go to my catalog on PearlTrees.

 

If you have some alternate ideas about the underbelly flesh, please let me know.

 

I will likely take a pic of the worm later and then apply the colors mentioned via Photoshop to see what they look like. 

 

As usual, trying to get enthused for painting, so post your musings and encouragement.

 

Stay tuned and Enjoy!

I pulled together a chart of the colors I have though I missed a couple.  I have room to add them later.

I haven't come to a preference yet.  I might look at the picture above on my computer later or retake it in my mini-studio for better lighting.

 

Primers are included for color correction.  The paper is a watercolor sheet so not true white.

 

Post your thoughts and if you have alternate colors let me know.

 

Stay turned and Enjoy!

So here's a half-dozen of the opens from above as overlays on the belly of Goremaw:

I an leaning towards the Old West Rose as the basecolor and Witchcraft Purple as the shadow.  Then going back and finding a lighter rose for the highlight.

 

Suggestions are always welcome.  This is not set in stone other than the blue overall color.

 

Stay tuned and Enjoy!

I went with the Reaper Old West Rose for the basecoat.

More to come.

 

Stay tuned and Enjoy!

      Hello everyone, the madness goes on. On todays menu we have 44105, Giant Maggots. These Bones Black models were sculpted by Kevin Williams.
      I did a 09282, maggot white and a 09039, pure white glazing on them to give them a transparent and organic aspect.

      Well after doing some adjustments to both my air compressors I decided that I need to use my airbrushes more and start knocking out some of the bigger minis I have.
       
      Gotta justify buying more minis, maybe airbrush’s, and/or airbrushing stuff. 
       
      I have a little more to do but aiming to do quick paint for table top, and work on skill building.

      So this sat on my shelf of shame after starting and hating the earth tones I was trying to go for. I covered it in a sepia wash out of frustration and put it on the shelf to finish later that week. Since then, it's just stared at me for way too long. (I started it almost right after receiving it in Bones 3.) So I just decided to finish it, even if I wasn't in love with the colors. Now I actually really love it. I didnt have a Sir Forescale so here is Andowyn Thrushmoor for size. 
       
      Colors used Ruddy Brown, Golden Brown, Woodland Brown, Stained Ivory, Creamy Ivory, Carnage Red, Clotted Red, Bloodstain Red, Monster Maw, Sepia Wash and Walnut Brown (new favorite color)

      I painted Goremaw the Great Worm up as a fire-infused purple worm for a unique creature from the Pathfinder setting of Galorion.  I am running the Curse of the Crimson Throne AP in D&D 3.5, and this creature will show up in my game tonight.  It is my first finished creature miniature (I have done some terrain previously), and being a perfectionist, I put in 48 hours of work on him (lots of nooks and crannies, and I don't have an airbrush).
       
      I finished him last night, reaching the "good enough" state, as time didn't allow me to put off varnishing him any further.
       
      I started posting a WIP thread when I started working on him several months ago.  Check it out HERE.
       
      Here are my Cindermaw glamor shots.

      Howdy,
       
      Here is my take...
       


       
      It has an amethyst sheen that is not pronounced in these pics,
      Kev!
