Starmane, Unicorn 02151: Project 1 of 2 for Fealron

Recommended Posts

Primed white except the base, black.



So, the idea here was to show a unicorn being corrupted, but it isn’t 100% yet.




HD Solid Blue then HD Dragon Blue.

The coat started Dragon White.  Then I worked light to dark through the Dusky Skin triad.  Darkest areas included mixing in Nightshade Purple.


I was working on two goals here: transitioning the coat from dark at the feet (corrupted the most) to white on the non-corrupted “islands.”  Then, shadowing these areas and trying to blend it all together.  There was a fair amount of losing ground, gaining ground, dilute glazing, etc.  push-pull, if you will.




The horn: Desert Stone, Agrax Earthshade, Dirty Bone, and Splintered Bone.

Thanks, Wolf!






The eyes: Red Liner, Splattered Crimson, Gory Red, Clear Red, then added a little Hearth Glow, Clear Yellow and Dragon White.  I don’t think I snapped all the stages, I just kept trying to build it up to a glowing red eye if possible.








The first of these is showing more blending of the coat.  What followed were adding more and more highlight around the eyes, forehead hair, and under the horn in an attempt to do some OSL.

Here was a few dilute washes of Bloodletter.  I think I added some Clear Red.  I thought the highlighting underneath would show through more, but it didn’t.  I’ll admit I didn’t like how this part came out.  I’m not a master of OSL for sure, but thought I’d make a mess of things if I tried to un-OSL it, or tweak much with it.





Here you can see the brightening of the eyes I mentioned earlier.  I got the eye glow to a level I was happy with, I just don’t think the glow on the surroundings reads right.  

You can see I added some dirt to the hooves, and drybrushed the base.  Fealron asked for simple basing, as these will be gaming pieces.  That allowed me time to do more models.




The base was Walnut Brown, Green Ochre, Dirty Bone.  This was put on the hooves.  The hooves were then toned down with Agrax Earthshade.


The blood spatter was Splattered Crimson, Gory Red, Fresh Blood and Holly Berry.


And that was that!  I’ll post it to Show Off soon.

      This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf.
      First the sculpt:  Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with.  
      Second the paint:  It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo.
      Third the question:  I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base.  It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy.  I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base.  Opinions?  Pros & cons?

      Hi people.
      Im going to start another PBP.  So far I have interest from @ShadowRaven, @dwarvenranger, @Dilvish the Deliverer, and @Kangaroorex.
      We’re going to start the Serpent’s Skull adventure path.  Pathfinder 1e.
      All books are in play, but I reserve the right to veto something if it seems too gross/bloated.
      Please utilize the Serpent’s Skull Players Guide from the Paizo website.
      Abilities: 4d6, reroll all 1’s, drop lowest score, yielding ranges from 2-18 pre mods.
      Avg. Starting gold.
      We’ll follow the AP leveling track when possible.
      We’ll have individual initiative.
      I hope to get this started soon, so please post those characters.

      House Rules
      1. HP beyond first level.  Roll the hit die.  If the roll is less than”avg” then take avg instead.  Example: Wizard d6.  Rolls a 1.  Gets 4hp instead, before Con mod.
      2. Acrobatics can be used to avoid AOO when standing from prone.
      3. If someone is not responding and action is waiting for them, I’ll send a pm after 24 hours.  If no response 24 hours later, I’ll take over that character to get action rolling again.

      You can decide if you know each other before the start of the adventure, or are all randomly passing through this small rural town on your way to or from Korvosa.
      You have heard rumor that a carnival passes through this town, and have come to investigate and have some fun.
      As you mill about the carnival grounds, you can sample delicious food from vendors, view exotic sights or shows, and participate in games of skill and chance.
      Let me know what types of things you are interested in, and if/how you know each other.
