Maledrakh goes Bust! Artisan Guild's Soul Stealer

Recommended Posts

q1-bust-artisan-guild-soul-stealer.jpg?r

 

This is the "Soul Stealer" bust from Artisan Guild's welcome pack on patreon. I printed it on my Elegoo Mars Pro resin printer.
This might be the first bust I have ever painted, not counting an Orc bust from the very early days of Forge World that I started but never finished and sold off at some point in the distant past (oh, the Folly of Youth).


So why this newfound fascination for busts? I hear you ask.

Well, it's the RCL again. "Bust" is a quarterly category, and since Reaper only make a very few busts, none of which are readily available at the moment (there will be a few released after Bones 5 fulfills later this year), the fine folks at Reaper have decreed that bust entries are not limited to Reaper product.

Did I mention that the RCL has been a fun way to choose what to paint? It really helps to keep things fresh and to motivate to finish the pieces I start. And now also to paint other stuff than I usually would.

I do not buy busts as they are generally outside my scope of interest. However, I do own one or two busts as .stl-files that have been parts of patreon bundles.
And with such an extensive library of files at hand, once I decide to do one, it does not take long to make supports and print one off.

But what to choose? Tentacle-face or a human face?


Do you want to know more?

Suckers for the win every time!
 

210223-artisan-guild-bust-soul-stealer-c I had to scale it down to fit my print bed. Then I scaled it down some more to make it a more agreeable size to paint.

I hollowed it out before printing, and I think I maybe should have filled the bottom with something to weigh it down as it is a bit unstable and tips easily.

      After 10 months, I finally dusted this off and finished it in an attempt to find some hobby mojo again.  Dragon is from Artisan Guild and was printed on the elegoo Mars almost a year ago. 
       
      Basecoated, drybrushed tan and then multiple washes layered before another quick drybrush and a final wash.  It was printed in clear green resin and the eyes and crystals on the rock were simply given a layer of Tamiya Clear Green after the mask was removed.  Crystals on the base are from Anarchy Models, again with a quick layer of Tamiya Clear green.  Reaper base with some Vallejo texture paste. 
       

       
      Thanks for looking.

      The Desert is a dangerous place, should one travel far enough, avoiding the Sand Worms, the Giant Scorpions and the Undead that roam there, one might find the ancient civilization of Stygia.
      Be afraid, very afraid, this place is not ruled by Men, be warned when you see the first signs of Snake statues and other signs of worship of Apophis!
      The first people you meet might look human, but on closer inspection you'll notice the strange eyes, the forked tongue and sometimes the scaled skin.
      When reaching the Capitol it will be too late.
      The Serpents and Snakepeople of Stygia will either devour you or enslave you.
      RUN!
       
      I give you Queen Sthenaria the Evil ruler of Stygia.

      In a previous post I mislabeled Aline the Bold also from Artisan Guild as this model so here is the actual Sony Jona. I had a happy accident with the teal cloth. I was painting in bad light (tsk tsk) and ended up mistaking silver on my palette for white. By the time I realized my mistake I was mostly done with the skirt but upon reflection (no pun intended) I thought it didn't look half bad and sort of fit the personality of the figure. The other thing I realized too late is that the base is designed so that the scroll and bottles snug up to her right foot. I realized this as I was painting the base at the end. Since she was pinned and glued in place so she remains.

      Your party is travelling through the swamps when you hear a strange croaking noise...it sounds a bit like "wakkawakkawakka...fruit"

      The giant frogs from the Dreadmere expansion.
