Darcstaar vs. Bones 1 ep. 3 Oxidation Beast

Recommended Posts

Since Callie is coming to a close, I have been preparing the Oxidation Beast.


I have one in metal also, so I will paint both together.


I had some 40mm hollow, round lipped bases that seem like a good fit.  I used some styrene model train cobblestone for one, and sculpted dressed stone tiles for the other.




I plan for one to use the 5th Edition Monster Manual color scheme (Bones)



And the metal one to follow the Pathfinder Bestiary 1 color scheme.  It has a red with black stipple color scheme.

I like the idea.  I have a bunch of weapons from a weapons pack.  Maybe a weapon on one base and a shield on the other.


You could stick it into a little puddle of Greenstuff showing the melting process.

I can recommend the Vallejo Special Effect set. They have rust paints ( both old and new rust)  and chipping medium in that set, as well as verdigris, vomit and fresh and dried blood.

Maybe some day.  I’m not really in the market for more purchases, but I appreciate the ideas.




I have the bases black-primered.  They got 2 additional coats of black.  Not pictured.  I have been figuring out how to attach the bugs to the bases.  Each is getting three pins.  The process for the metal one was a little tougher, as I used both front appendages.  One got thin and cracked because I opted to drill all the way through from the top down to try to make a better pinning for the metal.  I will greenstuff the resultant defects.  I need to figure out the rusted items, paint the bases first, then paint the undersides of the bugs, then glue them to their bases.  Will work more on it Monday.

Bases done.  Mid tone Stone Grey.  Stippled on various colors: Shadowed Stone, Ancient Bark.  Then mixed Stone Grey with various colors: Desert Stone, Runic Glow, Moonstone Blue, Sorcerous Mist, Foggy Grey, and then glazed a few stones to different colors.  Then I washed dilute mixes of Reikland Fleshshade, Agrax Earthshade, Nuln Oil, and Bel-Tan Green.  The glazed must have picked up some loose light pigment, because the recesses had a lot of white discoloration.  So I spent time with Solid Black redefining the deep areas.

Final highlight is Saffron Sunset.  I decided Burnt Orange seemed a little flat, and wanted a little more yellow-Orange, like the reference art.  I like it.


Next is the way to add interest to an otherwise flat paint job, and I’m going to leave it as a surprise...

Orange needs a pop of blue.  Instead of just the eyes, I wanted to color the antennae also, for a bigger pop.  This is Blue Liner, Marine Teal, Surf Aqua, Spectral Glow, and Pure White.  All that is left is the rusted weapon added to the base.

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Here’s the first new project of 2022.  I looked through the forums and saw a few versions of this based on the Redstone Triad.  I will try that.  I put a few pieces of cobblestone sheet styrene on the base, then flocked with sand.  I hope it will look like fragments of an old road when I’m done.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:
      Comments, criticisms, and suggestions welcome!
