Tikbalang Conversion Contest Entry #1

Recommended Posts

That is haunting. I can vividly picture a stop-motion animation version of this model and it is freaking me out miserably. I love it.

I'm surprised this didn't get more likes! It's very creative and (I think) one of the more extensive conversions I saw. I think it looks very creepy and well done.

The Philippines-Malaysia-Indonesia part of the world has just the weirdest monsters.Very well done on both conversion and paint!

If there's one thing I've learned from entering a couple contests, as well as being a chef, it's that you can follow the rules (or a recipe) to a tee and you can be super creative, but if it doesn't capture a positive emotional response visually, it won't win the social media popularity contest. People eat with their eyes!

 

Like most, I do this hobby for personal joy, so I'll do the weird stuff when I want to and show it off anyway. :D

That is a WONDERFULLY imaginative creation, BEAUTIFULLY painted & based. VERY WELL DONE!

I know nothing about Filipino mythology. It looks fascinating, something worth looking into.

      I'll need a Pegasus soon for one of the PCs in the D&D 5e campaign I run for my son and his high school friends.
       
      The metal Reaper one is lovely, but IMO, too fragile for use with a bunch of rambunctious teens. I was looking around for some options when I saw the Bones Sphinx, and figured her wings would "bolt" onto Silverhorn the Unicorn fairly easily.

       
      So here is my attempt to create my own Bones Pegasus, since I can't wait for Bones 5 to deliver me one:

       
      I cut off Silverhorn's horn (and set it aside for later), and drilled two holes in the shoulders.  I took the Sphinx's wings, and cut off the tabs, then shaped them best I could to fit the shoulder profiles of Silverhorn, before drilling a hole to pin them with.

       
      Next up is glue and green stuff.
       
      I have a feeling he's going to droop over time. Not sure if I'm going to attempt to pin his back legs(s), but at a minimum, I'll probably glue him to a 50mm base to keep him upright, even if he droops.

      Trying to get back into painting and out of my comfort zone, here is Silverhorn:

       
      Nothing wild really, but it was a good exercise in painting up from gray to white. Not perfect but he turned out much better than anticipated, so I’m calling this one a win.

      Recently @Kangaroorex sent me a Ki'rinn for my Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon Project along with a Asian Dragon, a Chibi Dragon and some candy.
      I already had one of these Ki'Rinn and decided to paint them in two different versions, brother/sister? Evil/Good? You decide.
       
      WIP Here:
      https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79416-nippon-land-of-the-rising-moon-by-glitterwolf/&
       
      Anyway, as with the Asian Dragon I wanted to show their unnatural appearance by combining normal paint with metallic highlights.
      So here they are.
       
      Hope you like them.
