Since the Eye Beasts are making good progress, getting the next model ready.  A suitable Player Character model.  Turanil, Male Elf Paladin.

The plan is white and red.  I’m hoping the peacock comes across as a Phoenix.

Further refining the ideas.

Now thinking white outer cloak with a green chevron, trying same on shield.  Inner cloak neutral khaki.  Fair skin with red hair to play off the green.  Still planning to paint peacock like a Phoenix?  Red/yellow/orange, also playing off green.  Brown liner on things that will be flesh, red hair, Gold NMM or leather/wood.

Rosy Shadow with some brown liner mixed in.  Then Rosy Shadow.  Then Reikland Fleshshade.  Then Rosy Shadow:Rosy Highlight.  Then Rosy Highlight.  Then Rosy Highlight:Fair Skin, Fair Skin, Fair Skin:Linen White.  I want more shadow on the right side of his face for light source coming from his upper left.

Trying a new NMM recipe.  2:1:1 Cloudy Grey:Tropical Blue:White.  Then washed it with Drakenhof Nightshade, but I don’t think it’s dark enough, so I’m going to try to re-line it all with Blue Liner.

Thanks!

Spent some time on armor yesterday.  Re-established base coat, 2 layers of white added to base.  It still has a way to go up to white, then going in reverse with Blue Liner additions.  But if I left it at this point, it looks pretty good.

      Venomous Flowers by PrintYourMonsters.  These are 3d resin prints.  Of course, they might also be only harmless spring flowers on some sci-fi world. 
       

       
      The smallest one is a bit over 1" across, the largest is taller than a humanoid figure.  Overall I've been very happy with the Plants and Rocks files.

      I only saw one thread about crackle paste when I searched these forums.
       
      So, I’m going to share how it’s going for me.
       
      I started with washed and dried 1” and 2” Reaper Bases.
       
      I put this garbage on a 2 inch base first.

      Don’t buy it.  I got it at Hobby Lobby at the time because they were out of Folk Art.
       
      To be clear, this is Crackle Medium.
      It is meant to be painted on a primed or rough surface I guess, and painted thin. I put it on kind of thick.  It didn’t crackle at all!
       
      So, I got a tub of this stuff on Amazon.

      The directions state “put over a thin layer of PVA glue.”  Pfft, who has time for that extra step?
       
      Here is the result on a washed but otherwise un prepped set of bases.

      1 inch
       

      2 inch.
       
      Lousy!
      So, the surface needs something for crackle paste to work right.
       

      This is a 1” base with a thin layer of PVA glue.
       

      This is a 1” base with just hitting it with 220 grit sandpaper and washing it again.
       
      I also used the 2” base with dried crackle medium on it.  Not pictured.

      This is a 2” base covered in black brush on primer.

      Here is the result on the 2” base over dried crackle medium.  It was hard to get the stuff into a uniform layer, as the medium created a very hydrophobic surface, so the paste slides around too easy.

      Taking a hiatus on the Mocking Beast.
      Trying to gain some victory in numbers on my Bonesium Horde.  I have completed the beetle swarms, spider swarms, and skeletons without WIP. 
       
      I’m going to do the goblins now.  I plan two batches: one yellow/ochre, and the other tangerine.  Some nice “non-Greenskins.”
       

       
      Several of these required boiling.  Some are still leaning.  The spears are straighter.  One of these was the beneficiary of a weapon swap.  I had given Danar, Male Assassin 77030 his shield for a spiked shield.  In return, we have a dual wielding goblin!

      The finished version of the mini WiP I was sharing earlier today.
       
      I tried to use washes and played with basing this time around.
       
      Any suggestions would be great as I don't feel as proud for this one as I did the Dark Chronicler Astrid I did back on May.

      This one is next in line.  He needs a better base.  
       




       
      This is a standard Reaper 1 inch base.  And a sheet of embossed styrene cobblestone, for model railroading.  I superglued it on, trimmed around it with an X-Acto, then sanded it down to 800 grit.  Any gap left is going to get the Brush On Sealer treatment to deal with the seam.  After this I just superglued the Mocking Beast on.  No pin.
