Newbie post. I've only painted half a dozen or so figures so far, but I'm enjoying myself, and that counts, right?!
She's painted with a mix of Reaper MSP and Vallejo Game Color. I haven't done so yet, but I think I'd like to start chronicling the colors I use for each future mini.
30001 Lysette, Elven Mage
Yeah, another base. Shocker, I know. It's one I've been thinking about for years, basically, since I bought the beads that are in it.
So, the premise:
I use the air-dry clay hexes from the previous project as well as these beads I bought at Walmart so long ago. The Bugle Beads are hex-shaped and iridescent. The color on the tube is labeled as "black iris."
I build a flat of the hexes and use the beads upright on a portion of the base to represent an unusual terrain. I use a pill bottle shell along one edge to build the terrain upward on that edge more easily. I'll peel that off later.
So here's the bottom layer of the piece.
The front layer is as high as it will go. The next layer will go to the top of the beads and also be flat. The last layer will be more like a hill on the other side of the beads.
Now if this was for a mech it would look like pilings holding back the earth. I will use more of them here than just along the fronts.
Stay tuned. Enjoy. Please, stay safe.
Hello everyone, here are pictures of a 77341 Lioness. This Bones model was sculpted by Geoff Valley. I painted it as a Black (Blue) Panther.
I kept the original base and sculpted additional high grass around to incorporate it to a larger 2 inches square base. The trees are dried roots.
Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures still make some great D&D monsters, here are three more:
Wave 1: Displacer Beast
The Displacer Beast is one of the iconic D&D monsters, described as a six legged panther with a pair of enormous tentacles growing out of it's back. If that is not bad enough, the schtick of this beast is that is displaces. This is an ability that makes it appear as it is a few feet off from where it actually is, so while the party are slashing at the image in thin air, the beast invisibly outflanks them with it's powerful claws and massive bite attack coming from seemingly out of nowhere.
Where are the mirrors I need to start breaking?
I rebased it on a 40mm round. This is a Wave 1 mini, released a few years ago. The tentacles needed repositioning using the hot water/cold water technique.
Wave 11: Grell & Basilisk
Who names these monsters? Grell? What kind of a name is that? This is obviously the Flying Spaghetti Monster!
The tentacles did not turn out all that well. The purple was too strong compared to the other colours and dried too fast to blend. Bah!
Check out the big brain on Brett!
And in the same pack as the Grell, a Basilisk:
This one was significantly smaller than I expected. Please disregard the piece of flock-fluff on it's right side middle. This is a loose particle I did not see was stuck there until after the pictures were taken. I just cannot be bothered with taking new ones.
30mm x 20mm oval base.
Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures
I have no idea who sculpted these, as WizKids do not -as far as I know- publish this info.
