Very nice. The shield is excellent!

Thank you very much.

A distinguished paint job for something that usually appears in mobs and is dispatched quickly. I second the compliment on the shield, and the lighting on everything works just right. I've never wanted to get to know a skeleton before.

I was shooting for a bit of a Harryhausen vibe.

How weird, I just passed up a copy of Clash of the Titans at Goodwill yesterday. Shoulda snagged it.

I have been agonizing over my bone colors lately. Your Deadite Lad is a SPLENDIDLY  painted Old Bone. Your colors & base are LOVELY as well. VERY WELL DONE!

I am glad you like him. Thanks for the kind words.

I love it, that base suits him well!

Good bone and rust.

 

One minor nitpicking, touch up the rim of the base, either black or an earth colour, but there are stains on it and that's bringing a great piece down.

@Glitterwolf yessir. After posting the pics I noticed it, and went and painted it a nice flat black. It's amazing the things you don't notice in person, but really pop in a picture.

Yes pictures are ruthless!

I like how you called it a simple base while it's an excellent little piece.

Gravestone, some fallen leafs, a unit with bases like that would stand out!

@Glitterwolf it really was simple though. Just a Sculpey gravestone I had laying around broken in half and some Apoxie Sculpt topped with blobs of resin sand built up around his broccoli base. The hardest task was making him fit on a 1" base, since I always prefer a bigger base :D.

      'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders.

      The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.

      Hello forum family, I wanna share with ya all my most recent fatigue: Marthragul!
      I was in doubt if painting it into a realistical Earth dragon, or something more colourful... The Magenta won! :D 
      And I chose to don't cut corners, so no drybrush, no washes, no feathering... just dear, old layering, shading and glazing 
      ...cause I'm a fast painter, as you know 

      And, yeah! This took me almost a month of at least two hours per day... basically I hate this dragon now 

      Enough talking, time for pics :D




      I really hope you like it, if you have any question do not hesitate :)
      As always every C&C is more than welcome.
      Thank you :)

      I painted this guy up, despite having eyes on Gale Force 9's Behir for my personal use. Decided to go ahead and liquidate it in a certain auction site, but so far, no takers. Ah, well. It's still a nice looking mini, so it doesn't hurt to have one around until I manage to finish painting the GF9 Behir... Comments, recommendations, and suggestions are appreciated.
