Pumpkin Golem, warrior, gravestone golem and water weird. The warrior will become my Strahd, basically Dracula for my upcoming campaign
Took me hours to get this far. He has a lot of tough to reach areas and I find myself constantly touching up. The good thing is that he is badass. I wish I had him for an NPC, he just oozes cool. Most of the basework has been complete, just a bunch of doo dads and his belts.
And because I have to be painting at least two things at the same time...Gibbering Mouther has begun. He will be one of the first creatures my group encounters on their next dnd session.
Speed paint with some sepia colors, reminds me of one of my dads old Lineol soldiers. He was probably going to sit in a box forever, I felt he needed some paint and some play. I love that weapon of his. I don't have too many models that have anything swinging out like that.
Some Highlighting. I decided I would take a different approach and not drybrush this stone (unlike the recent gargoyle.) He has lots of sharp edges that I thought would look nicer without drybrushing. I am very quickly running through painting, but still taking me hours. Big model, just so much to do, by this point I had already based most of him and gave him a wash.
Little more highlighting.
Johnny Depp pirate scowl...
I painted him in just a couple of evenings. I don't normally do much dry brushing on models, but I always like the way it looks on stone. That helped move things quickly too. Fairly large model, wish I had taken a comparison picture.
Assembled and primed. Two arms and a tail needed gluing.
Some base colors
Some shade added. Now it has a rich foxy color to its fur.
Pants painted, did a little bit of work on the fur which is hard to see. Working on other small details, mouth, nose and such. Wish I had gotten more done, but what I did finish, took me a while and I've been working through a terrible sinus cold.
A rough idea, that I am going to leave my friend to decide on.
I also believe the cape is 2 parts, but it is rare that I am baffled by a sculpt. I can't see where it is separated. I have been looking at other paints jobs online to try and get more of an idea on him and I can see their guessing games with colors running into each other from both pieces of cloth without a real definite stopping point to be seen.
I watched some TV with the family, went back and took another look at it myself and decided that the leaf pattern just wasn't coming out the way I wanted it to. Need more practice.
So I painted the base colors back over it and I am happy with what I have going on here. Just lost about a nights worth of work, but I rather that happen than be unhappy with the finished model.
I figured out the cape separation thing too.
Just have a sword, some small details and the base left to go.
Had some issues today. Turns out the superglue had a chemical reaction to the vallejo dirt and ate away at it. I had an extremely tough time getting this guy to stay on the base with the one foot. Took me all day go back and forth, waiting for glue to dry, putty to harden, in the end, kept it nice and simple...and he came out really sweet looking. Reminds me of the Fox from Disney's Robin hood. I loved that movie as a kid.
A bit different from the previous dark elves I painted. I used the more modern skin colors, leaving out the purple highlight.
I picked up this jar of texture, a bit more grainy than I thought it looked, but sill fills in the empty space on the base nicely and without much effort other than making sure not to touch the painted model with it.
Finished about a week ago, but finally go around to taking some pictures.
Using a mix of D&D dungeon tiles and handmade items. I picked up 2 bookshelves on Etsy, the artist did a wonderful job of which I tried to mimic with my own larger version. The scrolls and books he made are fantastic and I have nowhere near the time to figure out how he did it.
DogMightGames made the dice chest and rolling tray. Dice chest is perfect, but it took them 2 weeks over their max time to make/ship me a dice tray with a significant wobble to it. Still irks me when I hear the clunking back and forth on the tabletop.
Completed these last year, but finally got around to taking some pics. Maybe I should make a new years resolution to get stuff on the website faster. I have been working on so much, bad at taking the time out to snap some pics. First some speed paints.
Now, not so speedy paints
Reaper Demi Lich aka Flameskull
Reaper Dwarven Throne (painted as a statue) and Handmade Ochre Jellies
3d Printed Forge with Reaper halfling PC.
This speed painted demi lich is going to work perfect as a Flame Skull. I have actually finished this one, but haven't taken a picture of the finished product. Soon to come!
Another speed painted reaper bones model soon to be Nezzar the Black Spider for my Lost Mines of Phandelver campaign. This one is also finished without a final pic yet, but soon to come!
I used her last session and plan on using her again this session. This is not going to be speed painted, I really like this model and willing to take my time on it, ready for gaming or not.
I chose the Monkey. He looked very interesting, never seen a model like it. Painting for a friend. I should be further into it, but getting home in the dark since the time change limits me on spray priming. Had to assemble and do a little bit of gap filling with putty work too. But should start painting this weekend.
My first thought was to pin the hands and take pics of the process. It was a good thought, but the hand holding the staff was just too small for the jewel drill. It glued surprisingly well without the extra help. Slight waste of time and made a mess of metal filings on the table.
Watchugot behind your back Dr. Zaius? ahhhhhh ....Noooooo!
Some of the putty work
Paint is still wet
Took me a while to get a picture take, but finished! Also trying something new with the background. Something different, but I think I may go back to white.
The Ruins of Thundertree and Castle Cragmaw! Last Couple of D&D plays, more pics in the gaming section.
