Maledrakh's B4Core #91 Copperhead Nagendra


Recommended Posts

The snake people from the Bones 4 core set "Nagendra" subset. Nagendra would presumably be Reapers name for the Yuan-Ti snakemen of D&D fame that these would be similar to.

Since I saw them I had this inspiration to do the snakes as the types that the Kill Bill Deadly Viper Assassination Squad use as code names.

Presenting from The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad:

Copperhead aka Vernita

She tried to settle down as a soccer mom, but her past caught up with her. Would rather have been a Black Mamba.

 

These are speedpaints, and therefore all a bit rough. All done in just a few hours. My work commitments have increased significantly lately, so I do not have that much time to paint.

I might revisit them with washes, lining and detailing at a later date, but for now they are acceptable for the table top. They are all painted from a black undercoat.

 

I made a 32mm base adapter that fits 25mm bases, and used it on these to make the bases more in line with both the size of the models and the rest of my basing for the Bones models.

      Here we go with another Nagendra.  Trying new colors each time I do them to try and have some fun with scales.  What I need to do on my next one is some kind of combination with yellow.  Something more challenging to work with to make it fun (or completely ruin it).  
       

       
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      * Combo of golds and brown seemed to do alright.
      *  Felt brave enough to use an oil wash this time.  It's frustrating because I'm always afraid it's going to ruin the work I put in, but at the same time, the results could be awesome.  The wash is on the scales, and the shield.  I tried it on the sword, but it didn't lay into the lettering strong enough.
      *  The scales were good after the oil wash but needed a 'pop'. I went back and hit diagonally adjacent scales with a cream color.  Gave it a cool pattern without overwhelming the look.  I did my last one with an organic here or there approach.  This was more pattern driven.  Doing something like a diamond back would be a challenge worth doing.
       
      Misses:
      *  The sword did not come out as I had hoped.  It looks washed out and the runes on it are less than ideal.  Could use some fix ideas for this.
      *  The shield also is missing...something.  I don't know what it is, but there's nothing really cool about it.
      *  Eyes are so small on this model it's hard to do anything fun.  I made them black with yellow slits, but you can't really see them due to the size.  Anyone else struggle with eyes that are too small to really detail?  Or have a solution worth trying?
      *  This one just didn't have the same pop effect I'd hoped for.  I'm not sure what's mising, but it's something.

      I have been slightly less of a workaholic in May than in April, so I have been able to do some quartely challenges as well as the monthlies. I am probably not going to be able to paint anything else this month, so here goes.
      These were all painted for the Reaper challenge league May, and again, squeezed in between work. So, low effort speed painting is the key. which also shows that is it possible to get quite decent results in a short time as long as you accept there will be some rough bits.
       
      there are some pictures below
