Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!
I had lost my motivation to paint in the past few months. With no paint nights with friends, my mini's not seeing the D&D table as we're playing online atm, it wasn't motivating.
This weekend I picked it up again. Finished 2 mini's, of which I'll post 1 today :)
this zombie Beholder was my first attempt at painting a blind eye. Loving the outcome!
Added the toxic drool when I thought he was done, which turned out to be a lie. The drool finished him up proper :)
In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon. I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body. I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with.
I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the wing to the table while I painted with the other. It was not the most convenient method of painting. He was also very prickly... very, very prickly!
because its such a big base, I wanted to provide some interest for the game. I used the old road stamp from Basius to generate some pieces of broken road amongst a clearing in early fall. I was thinking of adding a smudge of snow but if I did it would conflict with the ruined stone.
Overall though I like how he came out and I really like the results on his tail and his crown of horns.
Hope everyone like him. This is still tabletop quality as I have been trying to produce quantity over quality.
Ok lets talk about this mini.
I got it two years ago in the Legend of Drizzt boxed game and just never use it. Why? Because it just looks weird for a dwarf and it is overall lacking if that makes sense. But I believe it has potential to look pretty cool and become one of my favourite minis. This isn't the first time that I dislike and convert a Wizkids "hero" mini but this conversion will be the most drastic so far.
So lets begin. First of all, the thing that bugs me the most are Athrogates flails. I've found some artwork online and here's how they could look like:
And, if you take a look at the first image above, they look like a pair of maracas:
This obviously means that I have to do a weapon swap. I will also change his hand position to make the pose more intimidating.
The second thing that i dislike is his spiked armor, it is supposed to look cool I guess but to me those spikes resemble crystals and it just looks super weird to me (kinda like the dark souls crystal armor) and doesn't go with the overall vibe of the mini
That means I will also remove the spikes from his helmet, shoulder armor and boots and make them look different and hopefully better.
I'm sorry for a long post, and I will keep you updated. Thanks for looking!
