Horror Paint on Townsfolk: Undertaker 77143

Recommended Posts

Thank you, it was dragons blood red, I was pleasantly surprised at how it dried. I was a little worried at first because it was so shiny but when it dried to the black surface of the coat it turned out really well.

 

I'm waiting on new paint I bought so this miniature was painted with nothing but the paints included in the learn to paint kits I bought.

"Sad to see the last of old Boris, really. But he knew too much. Couldn't risk him wagging his tongue after a few tankards, now, could I?"

Good stuff!

It seemed like the sort of thing the undertaker would say--in an internal monologue at least. Making up quotes/scenarios/nanofiction in response to particularly evocative minis is a thing a few of us on the forums do sometimes. 

The blood on the shovel, especially in that pattern, tell quite a story--I'm imagining a fellow-gravedigger and premeditated shovel-murder while the undertaker's victim was distracted. What would be easiest? Surprise attack while the victim was digging a grave. (Wait until it's dug deep, that makes disposing of the body much more convenient. ) But why? I fancied the undertaker's colleague was a party to secrets, secrets that everybody involved should take to their graves--sooner rather than later, in the undertaker's opinion.

Ah fair enough, I just thought you were quoting a movie or something.

      Here is a figure I painted up as a character in what my group calls "the B team adventure" - which revolves around the supporting cast for a more standard party. She is the cook/maid. I like the townsfolk from the WIzkids set a lot better than the other humanoids I have painted from them, like the elves. They have a lot of character which makes up for the sometimes shallow detail. I'm proud of this one because she basically had no face and I painted one on with fair success I think.

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
