Ok lets talk about this mini.
I got it two years ago in the Legend of Drizzt boxed game and just never use it. Why? Because it just looks weird for a dwarf and it is overall lacking if that makes sense. But I believe it has potential to look pretty cool and become one of my favourite minis. This isn't the first time that I dislike and convert a Wizkids "hero" mini but this conversion will be the most drastic so far.
So lets begin. First of all, the thing that bugs me the most are Athrogates flails. I've found some artwork online and here's how they could look like:
And, if you take a look at the first image above, they look like a pair of maracas:
This obviously means that I have to do a weapon swap. I will also change his hand position to make the pose more intimidating.
The second thing that i dislike is his spiked armor, it is supposed to look cool I guess but to me those spikes resemble crystals and it just looks super weird to me (kinda like the dark souls crystal armor) and doesn't go with the overall vibe of the mini
That means I will also remove the spikes from his helmet, shoulder armor and boots and make them look different and hopefully better.
I'm sorry for a long post, and I will keep you updated. Thanks for looking!
So a while ago I bought 10 of these prepainted wizkids merfolk minis off ebay for cheap. The paintjob on them is horrible but I like the sculpts quite a lot and my dnd group used them all the time during our underwater adventure campaign and was quite happy with th. One of them was missing an arm and I just put her in "to do" box and didn't use her in my games. After some time I chopped of her hand for another project and in the end I was left with an armless and handles mermaid.
Since my bits box has grown quite substantially during the last year I decided to pick something out for her in the arms and hands department and also repaint her.
I will post updates on the process here and in the end make a new topic in the show off section. I'm open to comments, criticism and sugestions and I hope you like this proces!
Thank you for looking!
So, I recently purchased the "Nolzur's Marvelous Pigments Monsters Paint Set". Came with a bunch of Army Painter washes and paints and yadda yadda yadda...
But it also came with this neat Owlbear mini, which is what I have to share with you guys today!
First eyes I ever successfully painted. But in my defense, I'd only ever tried on minis with smallish eyes, which was NOT the brightest idea I'd ever had. The left eye turned out really good in my opinion, but the right one was a bit messy.
I also need to do so me touch-up work on the base. I got a bit careless with the wash, and uh... Yeeeeah.
Lastly and leastly, I didn't upload an outdoor picture as I usually do. That'll probably come later, provided I don't forget.
Just painted a few figures.
First up is an Alligator from Wizkids.
His base is just under 5cm in diameter
Then some sort of larva, which I like to think of as a kind of "baby mothra" - also from wizkids.
It's coloring is based (roughly) off a real-life caterpillar.
Lastly, a couple of Cave Worms (Giant Leeches, #44031, Reaper).
