Outstanding work, Dan!

 

Maybe it's just the picture, but is the little skelly that was in the water still visible? Or did he get a bit muddled out?

 

Thank you, and no, sadly he has been lost to the murky depths.  I had a little disaster with the water, the glue I used to create the ripples reacted badly with the resin and dye and caused some unsightly damage, I had to pour an extra layer of darker resin over the top to hide the damage, which unfortunately meant the skeleton also became obscured.

 

It is a shame, that skeleton was supposed to be Ged the unfortunate rogue I wrote about in the short story above, I thought it would be a nice bit of flavour.  However that didnt pan out as I'd planned, oh well, live and learn.

It's even more realistic!

He's there and nobody knows...

Amazing! The testicles and water ripples around them, details like the old vases, scum on the water....

 

I know what you meant, but ...ehh....check the spelling?::P:

Alas, what a shame. He was a nice touch. Oh well.

Thank you.

 

Also this really cracked me up.  Reminds me of an old Red Dwarf episode where Cat one of the characters had been attacked by a giant tentacle, and later on when recounting his tale to the others explained how a large testicle had rose up from the water and attacked him :lol:.

Auto correct strikes again.... but maybe it's an insight into sewer monster anatomy?

That is a beautiful set-piece. The detailing is just what brings it all to life and shows how much thought you put in it. The spider web covered trinkets and crates, the small mushroom at the ladder, the scum on the suitably toxic looking water, the waves and ripples etc.

 

Some really smooth blends on those tentacles and nice brick colours.

 

I hope this sees some gaming as a set-piece for a scenario. 

 

It is indeed a pity, that the water is not translucent, but good save!

Wow! I am super-impressed with your staging backdrops. Do you also make terrain for play?

 

Thank you and no, I haven't played any tabletop games in years, none of my social group really share my nerdy interests ::(:.  Still I enjoy  building these things regardless, I just treat them as little art projects rather than playing pieces, maybe one day they will see action on a gaming table!

      Dawn at St. Toad's Mere.
      The worshipers gather by the dolmen.
      With scroll and orb, bell and blade, chalice, keys, and tome. 


       
      But what manner of worshipers are these, so pale and clammy? And why does that one's hand bend so?
      Is that...is that an arm, or something else?
       


       
      Lo! a foul miracle! They have become as their unwholesome master, transmuted into a kind of glory through their dark rites. Some still retain hands, or things in the semblance of hands, the better to wield tools built by and for hands, but others have transcended or transgressed beyond even these. Soon they will renounce limbs and spines altogether, shed their robes and live to writhe and squirm beneath the mire with their lord forever. 
       

       
       
       

       
      These are fantastic fellows--something about their eyeless fleshy heads makes them even more enigmatic and eerie than your average illithid. What are they up to? and what will their rituals bring upon the troubled earth?
      For all your eldritch cult needs. Could work as an alien species in a pinch.

      Good day everyone, here are a few pictures of the 03017, Charnel Grub aka Carrion Cralwer I painted for the diorama I recently finished. This metal Dark Heaven Legends model was sculpted by Jason Wiebe and is also avalable in Bones under SKU # 77226.

      'In the far west of the Borderlands, there is a land that spends a quarter of every year in darkness, the only light coming from the great gatherings of Sunstalkers that cover the plains.
      The locals tell a tale, about how the Sunstalkers, being the children of Night, aid her in her endless battle against Day by trying to eat the Sun. Whenever the Sun reaches the horizon the Sunstalkers gather, only to be held at bay by a mysterious person known as The Dawn Maiden.
      However, the constant battling eventually tries her out and inevitably she must leave the Sun unguarded, at which point it is devoured.
      In the end, her strength replenished, The Dawn Maiden returns and hunts down every Sunstalker, the indigestible fragments of Sun causing them to glow in the darkness. She cuts open their bloated bellies, reassembles the Sun piece by piece and releases it back into the sky to restart the cycle.'
       
      Presenting the Sunstalker, a monster from the game Kingdom Death: Monster.
       
      I don't really have the patience (or big enough brushes) for larger minis like this, so kept it super simple with lots of drybrushing. Despite that, I think it looks pretty good, so I'm happy.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Good day everyone, here's a Wizards of the Coast woc40047, Grick.
      This pewter model was sculpted by Neil McKenzie in 2000 and is now out of production.
      It's mounted on a 25mm round base.
