Haven’t posted anything in a while, so may as well break the silence with a WIP. I cleaned up Mashaaf, glued it together and stuck it on a CD base. Didn’t take pics until after the brown liner coat.
Then base coated all but the base. The claws and leg things and tail thing got maroon red. The belly got nmm gold shadow. The upper abdomen got a sample purple color and I extended that to the bottom of the tentacles. The face and upper tentacles got entrail pink. The back and body got nightsky blue and the rocks on its back got walnut brown. Finally I used holly berry for the “eye spots”
This is where it’s at right now:
Probably will need another coat of each but I’ll try to get the base and rocks on the back dry brushed first since that may mess up some other areas.
I chose to paint Kyphryxes (still can't spell it). Rolled the colors mint green, olive green, and fire red. Replaced mint green with alien goo. So this was painted only with the following five colors (and red and green liner):
and here are the results:
WIP is here. Kinda petered out at the end.
and yes, it is pretty bright in person. Hope my next foray into random colors is a little less stimulating.
Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.
must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...
15, ah what could that mean? I'll look later. Let's roll another.
seven! Good. Nicely spaced numbers. Will look it up in a minute. For the third roll... Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different... Finally!
oof! One! Critical miss. Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table. Let's see what this means:
15: mint green
7: olive green
1: fire red
huh. Whadaya know. Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
Got my bones this afternoon, inventoried, ate lunch, and decided to paint for a couple hours. These will all be used in an adventure his weekend.
also only painted with bones 3 paints.
The shield may be used by the dwarf pc in which case I will glue it to the arm holding the spike. Painted the spike and shield in mushroom themed colors since this character took as her skills craft (mushroom smith) and craft (alchemy with mushrooms).
Sorry for the poor photos. Bones 3 have not yet gone downstairs where the photo station is.
As I pondered my choice of wizard for my new monstrous Frostgrave warband, I slowly realized there was only one choice really. I put his witch, cat, and cauldron into he shopping cart around Halloween time. I knew I needed one for any legitimate Halloween display of miniatures. But it had sat unpainted in the blister for a few months while other things took priority.
Back to the frostgrave war band. So I chose witch as my wizard's school and proceeded to fill the ranks of soldiers with monstrous members like the horned hunter and a medusa archer, couple of tieflings, and even giant rats as warhounds. I think I am meant to paint up this witch as the wizard. She comes with a cat that I'm putting on the base with her and a cauldron that I am not. The cauldron will make a great prop when playing pathfinder and I already have a place for it in the birthday party adventure I have planned for next week. However the cauldron needs to sit on a fire or bed of coals or something. I realized I do not even have a campfire token so that became part of this project.
okay, so first I grabbed two 20 mm bases and glued some small pebbles and gravel to them like so:
Next I had to put the witch and cat on a base. I cut up an old bones base to fill out the bare base with flagstone shapes and glued down more gravel to fill in some of the gaps. Finally everything got some black primer.
Witch and cat:
The black Cauldron:
All of this happened over the last couple of days. Have not had much chance to paint since Friday night since we currently have house guests, but still managed to just start to lay down base coats while everyone else was entertained by part of a movie. Out pale saffron on the Inside of the cauldron and emanations, the cats eyes, the center coals in the fire pit, and the bat in the witches hand. No, I am not making the bat yellow. Honestly did not realize it was a bat until I got the yellow on it. Now I know.
also mixed wreath green with dusky skin to start on the witch's skin. Oh and also some vampiric skin for the witches hair and for a quick dry brush on the rocks in the fire pit.
Here is where things stand right now.
I would love some ideas for colors on that witch besides black and green. I can't seem to picture anything else.
