Maledrakh's B4Core #86 Snake Charmer 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:

Snake Charmer aka Bill

I went with a more typical fantasy colour scheme on this one as the code name is not a snake species. I imagine that snakes, being cold blooded (technically they are not actually cold, but  poikilotherm which means their body temperature is regulated by their surroundings, and not heated internally like warmblooded creatures like mammals. This again means that they are sluggish and slow when cold and quick and speedy when warm.)  would find frostfire especially dangerous and deadly.

 

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.

Very much like the frost idea - and well executed with the frost coming down her arms - I would think it might not just do damage but also act as a way to immobilize/capture reptilian foes.

      I have been playing Doom Eternal lately. Several stages within some of the missions are set inside massive demonic fleshy creatures or structures with organic tunnels. Organic as in made of living meat, like a skinned carcass, with giant meaty blobs, bladders, tendons and instestines everywhere. The floor covered in pools of acid...one can only imagine the smell.
      Naturally, this made me want to paint up some of the minis for the Shadows of Brimstone Belly of the Beast Otherworld. This otherworld is just such an organic hellscape, set inside the entrails of some enormous cosmic creature. The Belly of the Beast Expansion rules, cards and map bits come in the "Temple of Shadows" expansion set, an expansion for the japanese-themed Forbidden Fortress base set. The Skin Crawler minis are also included in this expansion, while the Gastral Tyrant, Bone Eaters and Acid Blobs each are in their own little enemy packs. I have at least the flesh mites still to do, and I am thinking some more giant tentacles would fit this theme well, if I can find them. Maybe even some of the new, japanese-themed heroes too.

      This lot took me a couple of evenings to do, mostly drying time in between prepping the Bones 4 Lost Valley Expansion minis. 
       
      Lots more pictures below.

      The "pictures or it never happened"picture:

      The entire Bones 4 core set completed. 163 minis, including a few scenery bits, some chibis and a great big Dragon. All for a hundred bucks. Plus shipping, fees and taxes. So maybe around 200 bucks for me then. Still a massively good deal. Not pictured are also two different bags of bases that I did not use, and 4 more of each of the pillar toppers that were included in the set.
      Ah, the quiet satisfaction of completing a project. *Achievement unlocked*
      so, onto the next. Onwards and upwards!
       
      Which of the expansions to do first, then?

      So we are nearing the end of the road. This is the very last of the 163 miniatures in the Bones 4 Core set!
      Last but not least! Or more accurately, Last and the largest by far!
       

      Who am I? I am known as Millstone Shover, Barrel Drinker, Demon Rider and Camel Puncher! But I am no one when compared to you, O Gauth the Magnificent! Gauth the Golden! Gauth the Tremendous! Gauth the Unassessably Wealthy! Gauth the Mighty! Gauth the Terrible! Gauth the Stupendous! Gauth the Tyrannical! Gauth the Impenetrable! Gauth the Chiefest and Greatest of Calamities! Gauth the Does Not Fit In Standard Shelving!
       
       

      Tommy Too Tall here is about 27cm / over 10 inches tall! I made him a 125mmx100mm base to keep him stable. I had some drooping woes that I have documented in my fixing Droopy The Dragon post back in November of last year.
      I can categorically and firmly state that the fixes have ....worked! Gauth has been standing tall and proud these last few months with no sign of any renewed droopage. I experimented with removing the knee-brace for a while, but then he sorta slumped, so I put it back.
       
      Painting: Black undercoat. Scalecolor Navy Blue all over. When dry, I drybrushed the green parts with Citadel Base Waaagh Flesh, Vallejo Game Color Jade Green 72.026, and Jade Green mixed with Scalecolor Hellbound Flesh SFG-16 in two steps.
      The Blue parts are done in the Navy Blue drybrushed with Army Painter Crystal Blue and Vallejo Game Color Magic Blue 72.021. This was then mixed with Hellbound Flesh, with pure Hellbound Flesh on the top.
      The Yellow parts are Vallejo Model Color Khaki Grey 70.880 with Citadel Layer Iyanden Yellow, with Scalecolor Hykey Yellow (a yellowy bone) on top.
      Plus some small details such as eyes, tongue and teeth in other colours I do not remember which paints I used.
       
      So now the task is done! Challenge complete! Achievement unlocked!
       
      But the road goes ever on and on...
