Demonic Lasher (Bones) - Last Mini of 2021

Recommended Posts

Not my absolute best work, but at this stage I'm just trying to get things painted and table-worthy rather than shooting for showpieces. Since I sort of half-assed (maybe 2/3-assed) this one, I've broken up the mental constipation that was keeping me from painting and now I'm happily back at the desk and perfectly glad to announce that good enough is good enough.  

 

I'm hardly the first person to view this "demonic lasher" / demogorgon as a sort of Barlgura-plus, so I used the same colors (reaper highlight orange, twilight blue) on the face as I do for my orange monster monkeys.  Torso is the cool greens triad, chest is the undead flesh triad.  Base is craft paint along with scattered broken bits from the foolish heroes who tried to stand in this fiend's way.

      Sometimes you summon something from the abyss.
       
      Sometimes it's not happy about being interrupted.
       
        
       
       
       
      I'd actually been wanting to tackle this naughty, naughty boy (yes, I'm sure it's a boy--and there were a couple of discarded shots that would offer evidence).  I started several weeks ago, then hit a wall.  I didn't want to make him green.  I really didn't.  I considered red, I considered purple (like my Rauthuros), I considered golden brown...and ended up back at green.
       
      I really wanted to do red.  It must have been a holdover from the Thing in the Well when the red didn't pan out.  
       
      I also seem to be on a drybrushing kick.  It just seems to work on such big models.
       
      So, what did I do?
       
      The base scales are Forest Green, Grass Green, and Jade Green.
       
      The armor plates are Pure Black, Black Green, and Forest Green.  I do that fairly often when I can spot other colors that seem to lead into other triads.  I'm assuming Reaper does it purposefully.
       
      Where the 'Lasher gets hairy it is Muddy Brown, Earth Brown, Leather Brown, and Tanned Leather.
       
      I knew I wanted somewhat creepy flesh, so it flesh started off as Tanned Highlight and (through drybrushing) was worked up through Fair Shadow and Fair Skin.  It's not that pale flesh is creepy (looks in mirror), but so much of it and being bare?  I think it's a little unsettling.  I wish I'd been a little braver and tried to do a little blue on the snout for a mandrill-esque look.
       
      The scales on the underside of the tail are the Olive Skin Shadow, Olive Skin, and Olive Skin Highlight.  I was hoping that the olive tones would bridge between the scales and flesh.
       
      The spines and thagomizer are Stained Ivory, Yellowed Bone, and Creamy Ivory.
       
      The horns are Dirty Bone, Graveyard Bone, and Splintered Bone.
       
      The teeth are the last "bone" triad Bone Shadow, Aged Bone, and Polished Bone.
       
      The mouth and tongue started at Pure Black and were hit with Dark Elf Shadow, Dark Elf Skin, and Dark Elf Highlight.
       
      Which brings us to the eyes.  One head started at Fire Red, Phoenix Red, and Fire Orange.  I wanted some continuity (like with the armor plates), so for the other head went with Fire Orange, Marigold Yellow, and Sun Yellow.  I'm actually a little proud of the eyes.
       
      The base was the easiest portion of this guy.  I've continued my tradition of Chocolate Cherry, Burnt Sienna, and Terra Cotta for the rocks.  The ground was Dark Brown, Golden Brown, and Khaki.  The result was less striking than I would have liked, but live and learn: Start darker or finish lighter.  I felt like doing several things with the bubbling muck.  I thought about red (BLOOD), mud (BORING), and decided on...silver!  Well, it's meant to be evocative of bubbling mercury.  It seemed like a nice way of saying "this place is toxic."
       
      Well, it's done now.  And any mini you can walk away from is a good one.  Or maybe that's something else...
       
      Unlike the Thing in the Well, I don't think I'd paint another one under normal circumstances.  The seams are everywhere and obvious.  I also had a great deal of difficulty gluing everything.  It just wouldn't stick.  I tried to pin the hooves to the base, and the arms to the torso, and didn't have an easy go of those steps, either.  I'm wondering if that had something to do with the motivational wall I hit.  I mean, he was glued and cured and fell off the table...and broke apart.  Time to reglue the regluing of the reglued bits.  He was also so heavy (and the bottom of the base is hollowed) that I couldn't get good contact points to keep him from sliding around on my tea bottle cap (about 2" wide).  Instead, he would slide slowly around when held at an angle--which means I was constantly grabbing the base and rubbing some of the paint off the base when I repositioned him.  I guess I need something to clamp the base down. 
       
      There were hurdles, true, and those hurdles took a little effort to get over.  But just a little.  Those with more experience pinning and green stuffing probably wouldn't have even noticed.  It just happened to hit me at the wrong time.  I'd rate the overall experience a "C-" (not great, but not unbearable).  And he is still a kick-butt figure!
       
      Thanks for stopping by!

      Hello All,
       
      Here is a metal 02716 "Demonic Lasher" aka "Demogorgon" I completed a few weeks ago.   This is a metal miniature and is a bit heavy.  It would be nice to see an updated version of the Demonic Lasher miniature from Reaper.   Though this one does look very much like the original Demogorgon illustration in the original D&D Monster Manual. 
       
      Thank you for looking.

      So here's what I painted in 2021.
      Lots of 3D printed stuff since I love to print minis now.
      With links to their respective threads.

      Hold on to your butts...
       
      This thread is going to be sizable because I'm starting my HeroQuest core box (Mythic Tier).  The expansions will get their own threads, which should be much shorter (as there are far fewer minis).
       
      I've already started painting and have (nearly) completed many doors, and made significant progress on the bookshelves and cabinet.  In an effort to get me to finish Tyrants of Lothal (an ongoing issue), I am forcing myself to complete the boring scenery elements first.  Which means doors.  Lots of doors.  And, when you've finished with the doors, you realize that you need to do some more doors.
       
      Where's Jim Morrison when you need him?
       
      Except as noted, the paints on the scenery are Delta Ceramcoat.  No exceptions yet, but maybe on the bookshelves...
       



       
       
      I would like to take this opportunity to not thank the individual that decided we needed vines on the doors.  It doesn't really show in the pictures, but I've used a medium green (Medium Foliage Green, to be specific) on some of the vines.  Khaki has been used on the others.  I have another door or two that were trimmed from the pictures, but you get the idea.  The stone has been set up with Black, Charcoal, Deep Taupe, Rain Grey, and White.  Start iwith Black, Charcoal or Deep Taupe and then work up through the next two colors with a solid drybrushing.  So much drybrushing.
       
      And still eight doors to be done.
       
      I felt that I needed something a little more interesting than simple stone for the keystones, and since this is a magical realm I figured that maybe a mad wizard might have spells worked into the doors to keep him informed of what has happening and give him a chance to taunt the heroes at inappropriate times--just like Zargon's twitter feed.  So I decided to use Gold instead of more black/grey stone.   I am looking for a good metallic on the iron bands and rings.  Silver is just too bright.  The wood was done with yet more drybrushing.  Starting with a base of either Black, Chocolate Cherry, or Burnt Sienna and then working up eventually to Golden Brown or Khaki.  It seems to work pretty well.
       


       
      The same theory from the doors works with the bookshelves and cupboard.  I'm thinking about using some color on the scroll work--some sort of gilding, maybe.  The hinges and handles on the cupboard will get a similar treatment to the hinges and handle on the doors--once I figure out exactly what that is.
       
      I'm about nine hours into the doors, and three into the bookshelves and cupboard.
       
      Now to finish some of these doors so I can work on some of those other doors.

      Generally not impressed, likely to be my only purchasesin this line. Not close to terrain in quality.
      Edgerunners set G ( missing right arm for exec 3, waiting to hear back from MFC)

      Edgerunners F primed, media glued
       
      Rockerboys
      Guitarist leg broken in pack, waiting to hear back.  Looks too small to pin for me and won't glue on its own

      Keytarist primed manager glued
