I decided to do the big treant today to have something that I could do quickly.
Here's today in a few pics. They got a bit out of order.
Green beard, orange mushrooms, black + browning shadows, brown + light brown in highlights. not sure what more I'll do. May not get to paint until the weekend.
I'm not sure that this is right place to post this, but I need to pick the brains of people with more terrain experience than myself. To be honest, that's pretty much everyone on the forum, but there you go!
I've been experimenting with different water effects on bases because I'm planning a somewhat finicky deep pond effect on a particularly awesome mini coming in the Bones 5 Kickstarter. It's been an interesting journey/struggle/experience but this one particular one has flummoxed me because it manifested a full three weeks after the material had set. Here's a couple of pics. It was crystal clear before.
You can see the cloudiness, it appeared overnight on the base. It seems to follow the line of the second layer of the material. Has anyone else had a reaction like this? It was Secret Weapon Water Effects.
The Froghemoth first appeared as part of an extraterrestrial biome in "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks" if memory serves, so a spacefuture setting is, if anything, returning it to its roots. Twisted, coiling, poisonous roots, in the fungal swamps of a jungle hellworld such as Retro-Venus!
I went for an unwholesome, etiolated color scheme--which blends in pretty well with the rest of the terrain.
This is a big miniature! Here it is towering over some tentacle-faced Cult Beasts from Midlam. They are about hound-sized in scale. The deep scars and tatters on the throat pouch indicate some sort of scarring from combat with others of its species, as rutting sea lions do.
This is a beast too much even for the Beastmasters of the Venerian Amazons to handle alone!
While we're at it, here's another view of the Cultist Beasts
And a Venerian menagerie:
I plan on getting Mudgullet and making a mate for this one at some point.
Hi all! With the year nearly at its end, this seemed like a great time to share a comparison project to reflect on this past year's growth.
A little over a year ago a painted up my first Beholder, and last month I painted another. I was particularly proud of the first so it's interesting to see a side-by-side a year apart.
More Below the Spoiler:
It's always fun to compare two similar models that have been painted with time in between. I'm always impressed by how much I can grow in this hobby in such a short amount of time. I only painted my first skeleton a little over two years ago. My confidence in layering has improved and it is now my go-to method of painting. Drybrushing and Washes are now reserved for specific effects and textures. My speed has increased, and I feel more comfortable adding freehanded details.
I'm proud of the growth I've had this past year and look forward to the improvements next year brings. And these guys will be looking forward as well. And backwards. And sideways. Always watching.
How have you improved this year?
Brothers Roberto (03561) and Louis IV (02087) are excellent sculpts suitable for multiple time periods. I've painted a couple of Nuns With Guns and a couple of priests, but not a bishop or a cardinal!
"Your Exellency, I apologize for the short notice. It's worse than we had thought."
"You are forgiven, Bishop. Is it the old Priory at St. Wulfstan's?"
"Indeed. The Creature has at last gotten loose from the bindings put down in 947 and broken through the 16th-century salt rings."
"God in Heaven. I had prayed those wards would outlast me. We knew this day would come."
"Mercifully, we have one of our best men on the scene. God willing he can contain the beast until the rest of the team arrives."
Father Sweeny, again from Artizan's 'Thrilling Tales' line, had better be a man of strong faith and iron will.
The Beast, ornery after centuries of durance :
Hold the line...
