After the Northern Penguin aka Great Auk were hunted to extinction in 1844, the convergently evolved Penguins of the southern hemisphere continue to eke out their existence in the Antarctic.
Of course, the reality of the north and south poles being totally separate worlds has never stopped people from making stories and images with, say, polar bears and penguins in them. Or walruses. (Or Pandas).
Such as here at the North Pole where Santa lives, we also find Ice Golems using Giant Penguins as guardians on leashes.
Sic 'im, Mumble!
This is another mini from the Ral Partha Europe kickstarter "Wicked Wonderland" featuring the Evil Santa I painted around Christmas, and some other polar creatures.
They are cast in metal, I made a 60x35mm base for them.
Sadly, the christmas minis seem to have gone from the RPE webside. Maybe they are only availabe for Christmas?
That still only counts as one, since they are connected and on the same base.
Hey! I could've sworn you were tap-dancing just now!
The three large penguins are from the Reaper Bones 4 kickstarter's Fan Favorites expansion, and released to retail together with the Dire Penguin as the "44104 Penguin Attack Pack".
The smaller penguin comes from Reaper "02848 Familiar Pack V" and is made in metal. I painted it as a chick on account of the perfect size.
And the Dire Penguin:
Because, of course there has to be Dire versions of Penguins too. It craves your fish!
This one did not want to be photographed against this background, and turned overexposed and invisible. We'll call it well camouflaged. I had to faff about with global settings in photoshop to make these pictures even viewble. The rest of the photos were unusable.
I painted it for the Reaper challenge league's January three colour challenge: choose and use any specific blue, green, pink. together with white and black from Reaper's paint line. Mixing allowed, but only with those specific colours. You can see which ones I used in the picture.
I chose to paint it as a kind of wierd Albino Penguin, and only mixed in a small amount of the green for shading.
I did not have any other reaper black left, and had to use Nightmare Black which is a very dark blue black.
I mean, Dire Penguin? That is some serious Cosmic Horror right there. Where is a Shoggoth when you need one to come and clean up?

I created a little Graveyard.

The pathway was made with Milliput and I used the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Rollerpin on it.

Oh, look a cavern full of valuable crystals. Hm, a tight fit. I am going to take off all my armour so I can crawl in there...

I think tentacles are all the more horrid when they are fleshy.
This would be a Roper for D&D, in case that was not obvious. A stalagmite-lookalike ambush predator that waits for the unwary to pass by, coiled tentacles at the ready to spring out and drag the victium into its hungry maw. Dungeon delvers beware.
Hi everyone, I completed this one last night. 02181, Sirithis the Succubus sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This is a Dark Heaven Legends model. I painted her with Reaper MSP paint and mounted her on a 40 mm round base sku: 74033. Censored for the younger audience. Uncensored version of the pictures can be found on my blog or FB page.
