My stash will arrive today!
I haven't done a WIP in a very long time , something I intend to remedy.
I am extremely excited to get my hands on my contribution to Bones 5, the Whispering Ghoulsbane. Maybe more so than any prior piece I have made. Seeing as how I don't actually have the mini in had at this moment, Id thought I'd fill this space with some history about the concept.
I like to watch reviews for feedback on pieces I've made (and learned a lot). A few review waffled on what the thing was, exactly. Part of me revels in this ambiguity -it is what you want it to be. That said it does have a mundane monster origin story.......wait, say, lets make a game of it!
Which "old school" monster served as the primary inspiration for the Whispering Ghoulsbane? take a guess.
Wait wait wait! it's here, at this very moment! Delivery! let the prepping begin.
Step 1: Open the bag.
That is all for now.
So, youngest vixen's boyfriend mentioned my hobby when hanging with his friends.
They like to play board games etc,.
One of his friends asked if I would paint the minis for his Board Game - Dark Souls for him.
He will let me know what he'd like for the bigger monsters.
As for the characters and minions, he let me decide ( oh boy, shall I paint a rainbow skeleton?)
Anyway, here it goes.

Vampires roam the land, but fear not, there are those who dedicated their lives to exterminate them.
Here we can see how Ernst Holtz and his crew hunt down the evil creatures who were hiding in an abandoned cemetary.
Once nobles and commoners alike donated money to the Order of the Vampire Hunters, but since the Baron's son and his wife ruled the Barony the order was mocked.
People no longer believed in the supernatural.
Ernst suspected the Baron's son and his wife to be behind it but he couldn't prove it yet.
When he heard rumours of vampires in the area he assembled his crew and took out the now rusty Dampfhammer.
He would show them!
He would capture one of those vile creatures and show it to the people, they would believe again!
Once more the vile Undead would flee before him!
And maybe he could find out why the Baron's son and his wife wanted to get rid of the Order..

David Attenborough's Voice Over:
Nature can be cruel and especially so in the Jungle and Swamps of the Lost World.
Huge predators roam this place so a smaller creature needs to be smart to survive.
Here we can see the Common Swamp Crocodile, the poor creature would stand no chance when a T-Rex or a Spinosaurus would spot it.
So it adapted to it's environment.
It's behaviour reminds me a bit of that of the Hermit Crab, in a similar fashion this little crocodile finds himself a piece of rotten wood, preferably a treetrunk and sticks it's head in it.
Then it rolls around in the fertile soil so mushrooms, grass and flowers will grow on it's hide.
This way it will be invisible to the larger predators.
Unfortunately, as we can see here, that tactic proves futile against the Amazone Warrior who is in dire need of a new purse.
