CIRCUS: Nolzur's Dancer, Black Cat Stage Magician

Recommended Posts

Berton & Bradbury bills itself as a MAGIC circus, so let's see a couple of fortune-tellers and mystics! 

The lady--Mme Zaragossa, the Sybil of Syracuse--is from the Nolzur's pack with the barmaid. The headscarf and dress looked vaguely Roma, so I decided to take that and run with it. And a pack of Deep Cuts wizard accessories I had gotten for the books and bottles included a crystal ball, so this was an easy choice! She refuses to clarify if the Syracuse she hails from is Greece or New York. Can she actually predict the future? For player characters, absolutely.

The gentleman--Dr. Desmond Mesmer, Mentalist Extraordinaire--is from Black Cat's Civillians and Townsfolk line. He has a great worried expression. Maybe he's picking up on a hostile, and equally powered, intellect? The hypno-eidetic phantasms of his Zoeotropic Chresmodeon won't fool anyone with ACTUAL knowledge of the future! Or perhaps that oddly enthusiastic volunteer placed something from Mesmer's  deeply-buried past in the lead-lined Box of Secrecy.

Another cool set!

 

He might be looking so worried because he read her mind and now knows she's after his money!

Thanks! And she can tell he knows, and he knows she knows he knows...get a precognitive and a clairvoyant too close together and it sets up a feedback loop of altering possible futures. :lol: One or the other will get a nasty headache or a nosebleed soon.

Yeah the backstories keep me coming back!!! Awesome highlights on her dress too!

Thank you! I'm enjoying the sideshow/carnival/circus very much, and the dress was quite fun. I did a similar color scheme on the Weird West Ghost Bride: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81990-no-west-for-the-wicked-03718-ghost-bride-59017-undead-outlaw-warmachine-pistol-wraith/&tab=comments#comment-1738480

      The Froghemoth first appeared as part of an extraterrestrial biome in "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks" if memory serves, so a spacefuture setting is, if anything, returning it to its roots. Twisted, coiling, poisonous roots, in the fungal swamps of a jungle hellworld such as Retro-Venus!
      I went for an unwholesome, etiolated color scheme--which blends in pretty well with the rest of the terrain.

      This is a big miniature! Here it is towering over some tentacle-faced Cult Beasts from Midlam. They are about hound-sized in scale. The deep scars and tatters on the throat pouch indicate some sort of scarring from combat with others of its species, as rutting sea lions do.


      This is a beast too much even for the Beastmasters of the Venerian Amazons to handle alone!


      While we're at it, here's another view of the Cultist Beasts

      And a Venerian menagerie: 


      I plan on getting Mudgullet and making a mate for this one at some point.

      Hi all!  With the year nearly at its end, this seemed like a great time to share a comparison project to reflect on this past year's growth.

      A little over a year ago a painted up my first Beholder, and last month I painted another.  I was particularly proud of the first so it's interesting to see a side-by-side a year apart.

      It's always fun to compare two similar models that have been painted with time in between.  I'm always impressed by how much I can grow in this hobby in such a short amount of time.  I only painted my first skeleton a little over two years ago.  My confidence in layering has improved and it is now my go-to method of painting.  Drybrushing and Washes are now reserved for specific effects and textures.  My speed has increased, and I feel more comfortable adding freehanded details.

      I'm proud of the growth I've had this past year and look forward to the improvements next year brings.  And these guys will be looking forward as well.  And backwards.  And sideways.  Always watching.
       
      How have you improved this year?

      Brothers Roberto (03561) and Louis IV (02087) are excellent sculpts suitable for multiple time periods. I've painted a couple of Nuns With Guns and a couple of priests, but not a bishop or a cardinal!

      "Your Exellency, I apologize for the short notice. It's worse than we had thought."

      "You are forgiven, Bishop. Is it the old Priory at St. Wulfstan's?"

      "Indeed. The Creature has at last gotten loose from the bindings put down in 947 and broken through the 16th-century salt rings."

      "God in Heaven. I had prayed those wards would outlast me. We knew this day would come."

      "Mercifully, we have one of our best men on the scene. God willing he can contain the beast until the rest of the team arrives."


      Father Sweeny, again from Artizan's 'Thrilling Tales' line, had better be a man of strong faith and iron will.

      Hold the line...

      Tried to paint the Griffon to look like Buckbeak (a hippogriff I could not locate) for a friend’s HP diorama.

      Extraplanar beings are diverse. I've painted several red fiends, and some green, blue, and purple spirits. When I came across this sculpt in the FLGS, I decided to try a new unnatural complexion for this devilish-looking entity, without any red whatsoever. It was fun! Only regret is that there were some great exposed back muscles that are harder to see now because I decided he needed wings (graciously donated by 039988, Bomber Sophie).




      More angles:
       
      The garment was a good opportunity for gradients, but I can't help but feel there was a missed opportunity for a pattern. I'm open to suggestions!
      Fair warning: while this mini looks rad, there are areas underneath the skirt that are almost impossible to reach with a straight brush. Hard to notice from most angles, fortunately, but another instance of a common oversight on the company's part. 

      Appropriately dramatic glamor shot:
