The Sunstalker (NSFW)

'In the far west of the Borderlands, there is a land that spends a quarter of every year in darkness, the only light coming from the great gatherings of Sunstalkers that cover the plains.

The locals tell a tale, about how the Sunstalkers, being the children of Night, aid her in her endless battle against Day by trying to eat the Sun. Whenever the Sun reaches the horizon the Sunstalkers gather, only to be held at bay by a mysterious person known as The Dawn Maiden.

However, the constant battling eventually tries her out and inevitably she must leave the Sun unguarded, at which point it is devoured.

In the end, her strength replenished, The Dawn Maiden returns and hunts down every Sunstalker, the indigestible fragments of Sun causing them to glow in the darkness. She cuts open their bloated bellies, reassembles the Sun piece by piece and releases it back into the sky to restart the cycle.'

 

Presenting the Sunstalker, a monster from the game Kingdom Death: Monster.

 

I don't really have the patience (or big enough brushes) for larger minis like this, so kept it super simple with lots of drybrushing. Despite that, I think it looks pretty good, so I'm happy.

 

As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

I can see why you were intimidated: big & cluttered are a rough combination. Despite that the Big Creepy Fellow is a BEAUTIFULLY painted & based creation. VERY WELL DONE!

Nicely done!  As for stories, I always thought the KDM story of the sunstalker was actually one of the nicer ones.

 

The colors you used are nice and vivid and I like how it all came together!

It took a while for the image to download and I was thinking "That's grotesque and more than a little creepy, but I don't see how it's not safe for ww...WHOAH !" Nice job - some good realistic skin tones for a lot of skin.

I haven't read the Sunstalkers book yet, I wait until I face something in-game (which is why most of my Kingdom Death stuff is unread :down: ).

Well painted.

I don't like the sculpt but that's personal, you gave it wonderful colours.

 

I didn't like the sculpt at first either, but it grew on me as I painted it.

The story I have read is the little caption that Adam did for the teaser on the expansion.  I am sure that he will weird it out somehow but the story is one where a sad little guy is in the dark and wants to play with his shadow.  he collects lanterns and plays till he's tired and falls asleep.  when he wakes the lanterns are gone but there is a little light creature in its place and they play together forever.

 

Given Mr. Poot's twisted little brain, there is no way that this could go wrong...

I am going to pretend I didn't see that.  this is a family forum ::P:

 

I find the offending bit to be rather...extraneous.  its not part of he story, that I know of, and seems to just be there for shock value in an otherwise  very interesting sculpt.  I will probably perform some surgery to create and additional tentacle.  I like what you did with the hand hair.

I didn't realise there were fluff teasers for the expansions, I'll have to give them a read, see if they give me any ideas for my fan-fiction Kingdom Death world.

 

 

Yeah, it is pretty pointless and rather silly (as are the "naughty bits" on most KD minis IMO), even the feet tentacles don't make much sense.

Although I think a Sunstalker who was all feet tentacles would look pretty cool.

As much as I like KDM there are some expansions I just refuse to get, this is one of them.  It is supposed to be lots of fun to play against, and the gear you can get for killing it is top notch, but still no.  You can fix the front tentacle but there is nothing you can do about the back view (link 3) 

 

You did a nice job painting it, I would not have guessed mostly drybrushed.  

 

I would add more shading to the hand piles, towards the bottom, a few washes would add more depth.

it's on the kingdom death website when you click on the sunstalker expansion.  it gives a little 1 paragraph teaser on what the story is while giving away nothing of the actual game mechanics.

?

 

Someone more worldly is going to have to explain that one to me, I can't see anything unusual on it's back.

 

The hand flippers did get a good coating of Flesh Wash, but I think most of it ran off (or I got too heavy handed with the drybrushing).

Agreed,  I didn't see anything scary or NSFW on the back.

 

washes have a real tendency to dry much lighter than they look wet.  I am not sure why.  Citadels washes are notorious for this.  I find I need to do about 3 or 4 washes to make the dry tone look like it does when its wet.  and when that last coat goes on it looks very over done.

 

hand flippers:  l like that.  I have a certain bones mage that resembles that remark ::D:

      Presenting the Cleric, part of the second Echoes of Death set from Kingdom Death, not sure why she has such a gruesome base insert, none of the others came with one.
       
      Disappointingly, she looks pretty terrible in the piccys. Honestly, apart from her decidedly wonky eyes, I thought I'd done a fairly good job.

      Presenting the Storm Knight from Kingdom Death.
       
      Second time tackling this one (I like it that much!), I think I prefer my newer, colourful version but I still struggled to do a decent job on his cloud cape, I think it needs more time and effort put into it than I have the patience for.

      The Screaming Antelope is one of the core monsters of Kingdom Death: Monster.  And the fact that you can get so many fine resources from it makes it one of the most hunted creatures in the setting.
      For this paintjob, I wanted to move away from both the grey standard color scheme for the antelope and away from the red "skinned antelope" look I've often seen.
      All together, I feel like this came out really well.
      The base is constructed from apoxie sculpt and green stuff.

      Good day everyone, here are a few pictures of the 03017, Charnel Grub aka Carrion Cralwer I painted for the diorama I recently finished. This metal Dark Heaven Legends model was sculpted by Jason Wiebe and is also avalable in Bones under SKU # 77226.

      With the Borderlands so infused with the reality-altering power of The Void, mutants and people with extraordinary powers are quite commonplace.
      While some settlements cast out those that are different (a decision they usually live to regret), most are more welcoming, when you live in a world where everything is trying to kill you, any help is appreciated no matter how strange the source.
       
      Presenting the Ringtail Vixen, a special character in the game Kingdom Death:- Monster. Her heightened reflexes and superior strength come in handy when fighting giant monsters.
      I have fairly mixed feelings about this one, I'm happy with some parts like her tails and leggings, but not so much with others like her face (I'm really starting to struggle with these smaller faces) and her club (I never did figure out a decent colour to paint it), but overall she doesn't look too bad.
