Wonderful fountain! You have an eye for terrain. Well done guillotine as well, gives me the shivers... love the scene you made - that port town may be a bit harsh on those tourists though...

Nice work on the fountain.  You must have a light touch to be able to do the fine feathering lines of the marble so well.   I'm sure the tourists delight in the grisly, primitive guillotine in this quaint seaside town.

:wub: I feel validated!! I'd love to take credit, but a fine brush goes a long way, and with marble, NOT controlling the lines too stringently works great. As Mandelbrot said, nature does not move in straight lines. Irregularities are a feature, not a bug! I would say if there was one technique I'd share, it's making the white and grey lines trend either both clockwise or both counterclockwise as you move up (though perhaps at slightly different angles).

Oh, it's a quaint historical relic most of the year...until some nosy busybody looks too closely int the history and etymology of Santiago y San Juan Chapel. James, Joao, Iago, Diego; Juan, John, Johannes, Hovaness...DAGON and OANNES demand their due. The fish haul has been declining lately. Perhaps if we went back to the old ways...
(If you couldn't tell, I'm a fan of the films "The Wicker Man" and "Dagon.")

      So, I recently purchased the "Nolzur's Marvelous Pigments Monsters Paint Set". Came with a bunch of Army Painter washes and paints and yadda yadda yadda...
       
      But it also came with this neat Owlbear mini, which is what I have to share with you guys today!
       
      First eyes I ever successfully painted. But in my defense, I'd only ever tried on minis with smallish eyes, which was NOT the brightest idea I'd ever had. The left eye turned out really good in my opinion, but the right one was a bit messy.
       
      I also need to do so me touch-up work on the base. I got a bit careless with the wash, and uh... Yeeeeah.
       
      Lastly and leastly, I didn't upload an outdoor picture as I usually do. That'll probably come later, provided I don't forget.

      Frog-folk are always irresistible, and tiny poison-arrow frog-folk even more so. These are from a Nolzur's 3-pack. One had some kind of horns on its head I didn't fancy, so I trimmed those off. Look at these big-headed little savages!  
       


       
      More angles: 
       
      But I know you're all here for the Grenadier! Afraid I had to get this Marsh Dragon from Mirliton, but I couldn't resist. It's so salamander-like, with goggling newt eyes and axolotl gills, and that lovely rounded snout. We're really jaded by fancy dragons after years of fantasy art. Even a low-level drake like this would be pant-fillingly TERRIFYING in real life. Look at that dynamic curve of its body, the lashing tail! The armored prehistoric arrogance of a crocodilian, but faster and more agile; something with the metabolism of a tiger and the yawning bite of a leopard seal, with a bone-breaking tail-swipe. This is a great 'cryptid' dragon, suitable for Call of Cthulhu or a low-fantasy gritty medieval / renaissance game. 

      You know any treasure hoard is buried deep in soft, acidic mud, too. They don't stockpile precious metals in particular, but anything else gets corroded away in that caustic sump.

      Like the Grungs, I gave it vivid aposematic coloration, partly like the salamanders it resembles, and partly because many of the dragons chronicled in Continental European legend were feared less for their size than for their virulent poison. 



      I don't know what the excrescence on its back is meant to be; certainly not wings. Maybe a bony outgrowth, maybe a Suriname Toad style brood pouch of puckered and toughened hide, maybe an organic saddle. Since there are so many styles and colorations of poison dart frogs, I might get another pack of Grung and modify one of them to ride on this thing. Their bandy legs and its peaked carapace look like a good fit.
       
      EDIT: More froggies!

      It was getting along for sundown when the turtle moseyed into town.

      Now, round these parts, we don't ask questions about a man's past. But every man's got a past, and sometimes the past got a long shadow.

      I will glue a grommet top hat to anything, anything. 
      Something about the poncho made me think of old Spaghetti westerns, and things snowballed from there. 
      Hope you enjoy!

      Finished my beholder. It's a little over exposed after stacking the photos. I'm too lazy to take new pictures. He was fun to paint! i'm happy with how he came out, Need to keep pushing myself though.

      "Great Gods!  I'd rather be
      A cultist suckled in a creed outworn
      Could I but see Cthulhu rising from the sea
      or hear old Dagon blow his wreathed horn."

      (With apologies to William Wordsworth)

      A desolate piece of grey coast on a very particular day in November.

       
      The hour is right. The signs are right. The stars are right. 
      A pulse of sickly green light, far out to sea. 
      An hour passes, then two. It takes even one of the High Priest's blood a while to ascend from the crushing black depths.


      Then, a boiling. A bubbling and a heaving of the waters. With a great splash, vast flabby webbed wings break the surface, followed by a most awful head. 


      Brine cascades off its greasy hide in waterfalls as more and yet more of its colossal bulk emerges.


      So, now. The summons worked. But did the binding?
      Foam churns around its loathsome feet as it strides up to the shore. 


      (Cultist is played by 59039, Deadlands Noir Occult Detective.)

      The Nolzur's Star Spawn is one heck of a chunk of model! Very good detail; good placement of clear water and primed plastic. Some places were NOT EASY TO REACH, but it turns out those wings pop right out of their sockets if you bend and wiggle them a bit. Found that out by accident. They pop back in pretty easily, too, so that helps a lot. 

      Water is mostly GW blue and green contrasts mixed together. Takes a lot of time brushing back and forth before it adheres properly to the translucent plastic. A drybrushing with ivory white gets the foam caps. 
      Skin is mostly a base coat of AP Disgusting Slime graded with darker greens. Irregular rings of Reaper Ancient Oak and Reaper (sample internal-organ pink) provide some contrast; there's a lot of canvas and it needs variety. 

      Decided to make my other Reaper spawns match the scheme. Eldritch demon, 77113, and Darkspawn Minion, 03438b. 
       
      Alternate summoning:



      And an as-yet-unpainted Great Cthulhu piggy bank that is about the right scale for the O.G. G. O. O. 
      Towering over the horizon, blotting out the sun--classic Cthulhu stuff.
