Spikeshell Warriors

Recommended Posts

Spiney turtles for brown reference. 

I dreamed of these guys last night, and realized how I wanted to do the colors

brownline base, a mix of red, orange and brown for a midtone, and ochre as a highlight with half-steps between them, 

they painted up quickly this morning - and then I realized I had some free time this afternoon, and painted up a third as a box turtle.  

I blame this one on the getting to know you question. 

 

today was a good day for painting.

      I haven't seen a lot of posts with this mini (02997, Serris, female fighter-thief), and that is a shame, because she is MAGNIFICENT. Dynamic and bold, with amazing fantasy hair and the build of a wrasslin' goddess. She's a big girl, too--even hunched over, fully 32mm from toe to top. Great value for $4.99. 


       
      Fighter-thief" is an odd designation, because she looks like a barbarian, in the Red Sonja line (or maybe one of Merida's conquering ancestors). Then again, Conan did a lot of thieving and reaving as well as slaying. She definitely has a Cimmerian torso. Lats for days. 
      Tried to give her a sunburnt-looking partial tan, she being a redhead and all.

      Let's pit her against some monstrous opponents! My character in "Tomb of Annihilation" was a Tortle barbarian with a macahuitl named Mossback. (He venerated the ancestors, especially Great Ancestor Kawa-Bunga,) So the Spikeshells were a natural fit. I love their alligator-snapping-turtle gestalt. The word 'ornery' was MADE for snapping turtles. (and also the American badger, but I digress)
       

       
      And some more shots of the swamp tortles. They were mostly contrast paints, Snakebite Leather and Gore-Grunta Fur. The green of the algae in their shell cracks is AP Disgusting Slime.

      And now for this week's minis, the spikeshell warriors. These guys were painted to tabletop using the same artists paints, but one was over white and the other was over black.  The shell patterns are also different, but I ended up liking one more than the other.
       



       
       
      Thanks for looking.

      I painted these Squogs, Turtles and Kar Drakir to fit in with my lizardmen/seraphon for Age of Sigmar. The squogs and turtles were painted early last year, a quick paint job to test out some colours for my lizardmen. Kar Drakir was painted to serve as a lizardmen hero. The squogs were slightly converted - Mudcroak received a Lizardmen style staff top and one of the squogs got a skink sword.
       
      The Squogs and Turtles were okay models - the weapons on the squogs were fairly thin and thus a bit floppy. Kar Drakir was amazing. I think models that's 35mm+ is where the bones material really starts to shine.

      Working on a colour scheme for something else, so I figured I'd start small and see how it goes.
       

       
      Here's one of the 77270: Spikeshell Warriors, slathered in brown liner.
       
      And here's the plan:
       

       
      Isn't he cute!?
