03241: Aroudj Firebeard and 03767: Nemesra, Dancing Girl

Recommended Posts

The Rajah and one of his favored courtier/entertainers. These were both a delight to paint. Aroudj there has a peacock feather and embroidered cuffs that I'm quite pleased with, and I'm happy with the blending on Nemesra's skirt and ribbons. The brazier is Nolzur's.

Very nice - I second the great vibrant colors on the dancing girl. What are you using as the carpet?

Thanks, folks! I do love an excuse for bright yellows and oranges.

The 'carpet' is simply patterned paper from Michaels'. They sell squares with nifty prints in the scrapbookery section, and the red Victorian wallpaper pattern on top of the blue tile pattern seemed good for an Eastern palace. (The 'red dirt' featured in many of my other  pics is also stucco-patterned paper.)

      I've had Garzuhl, the Mantis Man Ranger, painted up since 2015 or so, and just knew she was going to be the core of an insectile faction at some point. Then Nolzur's put out some Thri-Keen, and Reaper's Umber Hulk Burrowing Behemoth came out, and things fell into place. 

      From the sweltering hive-cities of Mercury Terminus to the windswept ice-plains of Ganymede, the Kithkthix (for that is as close to their name as we can pronounce without pheromone glands) dig in and build their mounds anywhere they can get a foothold. Their societies are termite-like, with castes for every position. Intensive artificial selection is used to form new castes as necessary--a barbaric practice to humans, but the communal Kithkthix identify as a collective rather than as individuals. The only pronoun in their language more specific than smaller than We[caste] is Queen. 

      Here are a few representatives of the hunter/gatherer caste (Nolzur Thri-Keen and a grab-bag D&D Thri-Keen), on the search for organic matter that can be used to grow the spores of the fungus that is their sole sustenance. 

       

      and a more mature member of the caste (03850, Garzuhl) with her domesticated seeker trilobites. 


      A member of the Warrior Caste, ready to rip and rend any threats to the colony: 

       
      And a member of the Excavator caste, earthmovers par excellence. This specimen appears to have sustained an injury--but what could cut through that zinc/iridium-reinforced carapace?

      BONUS: The Manna-mold contains all the amino acids, lipids, and vitamins needed for human survival, plus digestible carbohydrates. Nevertheless, it is not recommended for human consumption, especially not the ROYAL SOMA strain, as there can be adverse metabolic consequences:

      Between my Weird West game, a pirate one-shot I got talked into planning, and some future plans, I've no shortage of uses for these cannon from Nolzur's. One package is a pair of naval long guns that might be 12-pounders or maybe bigger calibers. The carriage isn't right for Civil War land use, but I don't care and neither will my players if they get the chance to capture a cannon. Used @HolkDiggity's excellent advice to grunge them up with Typhus Corrosion and then rusted one of them up further. They are smoother out of the box.



      And then there's this magnificent bombard. Modelled after the Tsar Cannon, I believe; this is the sort of thing you use when those walls absolutely positively, NEED to be breached, or if you're besieging Vienna or something. Aroudj Firebeard included for scale.

      Just a simple pair of horrible spacebeasts frolicking in their native hellworld! 

      I'll have to gloss up the molten bits of the base at some point. Any tips on lava bases I should be aware of?


      In retrospect, I think the glowing mouths were inspired by the "gorilla-wolf motherbroccolers" from Attack the Block.
       
      I do not know if the designers intended this, but the pair of them are in a perfect pose for Magma Wrasslin.'

      It seems that scale creep is a very real thing! This is Nolzur's delightfully brutish and verdant Shambling Mound. For a Large creature it is very large indeed, easily the size of a tabletop-scale elephant or bigger, and extending way off a 2x2 base with its outstretched limb.

      I put some straight-pin mushrooms on it, as I do. 
       
       

      Here's a group shot with Reaper's beautiful Swamp Shambler and a WotC grab-bag Dryad and Needle Blight, for scale comparison.
