Just a simple pair of horrible spacebeasts frolicking in their native hellworld!
I'll have to gloss up the molten bits of the base at some point. Any tips on lava bases I should be aware of?
In retrospect, I think the glowing mouths were inspired by the "gorilla-wolf motherbroccolers" from Attack the Block.
I do not know if the designers intended this, but the pair of them are in a perfect pose for Magma Wrasslin.'
Every once in a while I get the hankering to do some Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures. I like the monsters and have bought a few, but I can't stand the itty bitty truscale of the humans though -they are simply too small for my tastes, the shallow details disappearing beneath the oft-to thick primer.
Here are Xorn, the three-legged three-eyed earth elemental with a massive maw! There are two to a pack, and I think they are supposed to represent a low-level and a high-level version. However, they are the exactly the same size, so who can tell the difference in power level?
I stuck them on 32mm bases, as they fit well.
They come pre-primed, so I painted them by sloshing on some thin greenish grey, followed by drybrushing with sandy yellow and some bone white. I put some old citadel imperial purple in the maw, and slathered the things in dark tone quickshade ink. Well. maybe not slathered. I made sure to draw off most pooling before they dried up leaving those horrible tide marks.
I did the teeth and claws in bone white, and the eyes with several shades of blue with a white centre and some gloss varnish. Not really happy with the eyes, so I might revisit them at some point.
These also are good as some sort of Cthuloid entities or chaotic daemonspawn somethings for Conan to send back to the Abyss!

Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures, wave 5, 2018
***Since I wasn't doing anything else....****
I started on these 2 last night during the hangout...
I am wondering if I shouldn't paint this one as a Xaren, as it is a little smaller....
This is the first figure I work on from Otherworld, and it is a nice piece with good casting and minimal mold lines. The 7(!) pieces fit together pretty well, but I needed to drill out 2 of the arm holes, and do a little crack filling...
