Mantic library mini crate

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone!  For the two hour investment I thought it came out rather well.  looking at it, I probably need to spend a little more time drilling and adding pins to the bottom of each of the bookcases so that they will stack neatly and not fall over.  I also may go back and dress up the desks with some metallic.

Magnificent stuff! I think I took more than twice as long for an outcome less than half that good. Lovely colors, and yes to some metal accents on the desks and ladder!

thanks for the compliment!  As you can see, our librarian will bend over backwards to help even if you want something from the very top shelf... or the ceiling, in this case!

Nah he has just been carrying Paizo Core handbooks all day & has yet to relax himself back into normal position.

 

Excellent work on all of these. I finally got to see this or least retail boxes while at LVO. They look interesting but with the 3D printer & access to files & such I haven't had the need for them. Love the bookcases thou. The books look a hell of lot easier to paint up then the Fat Dragon bookcases (books are set deeper then the shelves....ughhh).

The books on these shelves are really well positioned.  Far enough in to set the sides and the back of the bookcase is true shadow, making painting easy, and they close enough to the edge that the cover colors aren't shrouded by the shelf overhang.

 

The only thing I would have liked for realism is a few more horizontal stacks.

      Fe fi fo fum, here come the Giants!
       
      Ignore the bases, they are temporary until the Sons of Behemat codex releases and I know what I can proxy them as.
       
      First up we have Devin Townsend...er, the Kings of War Giant.
       
       
      Then the former Otherworld Giant, now produced by Crooked Dice Games.
       

       
      And a very iconic piece of loot:

      This is one of Mantic's earliest metal minis, the "limited editon" Orc Shaman from 2011. It was AFAIK not available by itself, but added to army boxes, deals and so forth and I believe I got this from the first Kings of War kickstarter in 2012. Or an army box with orcs.
      Today, it is on their website and can be had by redeeming 25 mantic points through their points scheme. It was known for a while as "Wip the Half-Caste" but now is back to "Orc shaman" I suspect the "Wip the half-caste" name is some sort of internal Mantic joke.
       

      I must admit I have always found this model to be rather busy and difficult to read. There seems to be so much going on.

      On my quest for a Legions of the Dead full painted army for Saga : Age of Magic, I just finished :
      - a Behemoth (Colossal Skeleton from Reaper)
      - 2 flying creatures (skeleton demon from Ral Partha)
      - 2 quadrupede creatures (Skeletal War Dog and Handler from Ral Partha with Giant Skeleton Rats from Mantic)
       

       
      Next... Bowmen ?

      So I was just about to check out my first Star Wars Legion game night at the lfgs when the whole apocalypse thing happened, so rather than painting my Imperials, I've been focusing on  getting my rebel scum assembled so that wife (who is "mostly" interested in playing) and I can learn to play here at home. With that complete I now need to get some more Imperials finished so we can actually play, since I'm not attaching bases to the Imperials until they are painted.
      As my wife actually agreed to play this weekend, that meant I needed a commander quick!  So I pulled up the FFG guide online to paint Vader and knocked out a decent tabletop in a couple of hours.
       

       
      Good enough and he already squeaked on a victory yesterday in our first game (he had one wound left).
      Now back to painting white armor to get more troopers ready.....sigh.

      This is the Reaper Bones Dire Bear (SKU 77494).  This was another test of contrast paint, this time over a base of skin color.  I think it turned out pretty good, and it was fast, which is always a plus when trying to conquer the mini mountain.
