Blowing up a storm!


« on: 28 September 2011, 04:19:35 PM »

The pace is going to be glacial, but I've decided to start a diary to help motivate me to get some stuff done.  Here's some of the task based and undercoated:



Comprising:
AI11 Ancient Indian Forest tribesmen
DNP5 'Domain of the Drow'
DNP6 'The Goblin Stronghold'
Fantasy Heroes from DNP7 Heroes Booster, plus others
3x AC31 Unicorns and an AC32 Pegasus

There are other bits and pieces in various states of preparedness, but this is my first big block.

Horde of Things

These are almost ready, just got to sort the eyes and figure out suitable bases. 

I decided to base the colour scheme on that of a Cassowary becasue they looked vaguely avian befoer I started.  Probably some form of featherd dinosaur!  One adult male, one sub-adult male and four females.  They're a bit darker in ral life.

I like the 'Things'!  I'll have to get them added to the catalogue at some point.

Thanks Leon, definitely characterful little chaps Wink

Think I need to zoom out a bit on with the camera though.  I’ve been going a bit OTT since I found the Macro settings!  Undecided

 Cheesy

I've just got a new one this week, with a 'Super Macro' feature which I'm quite daunted by... so expect some Extreme Close-Up pics from the Derby show this weekend!

A Fungus Forest!

So, inspired by Steve J's "A Tale of Four Gamers" thread - http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,5917.0.html - I decided to shoehorn some painting time into my life.  Since I'm almost exclusively into fantasy RPGs I've decided to morph the basic idea of a Warhammer unit each month into an encounter/area each month.

Further inspiration provided by Maxwell's pictures - http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,4524.0.html - of Germy's fantastic pasta plants http://www.germy.co.uk/pastaplants.html

Always loved Fungus Forests, probably inspired by Erol Otus artwork in old D&D modules or something!

So, here they are primed and ready to go:



Back Row: I think I've had the resin giant mushrooms for the best part of 20 years, possibly Grendel Miniatures!
Second Row: Germy's marvellous pasta plants, here appearing as trumpet fungi.
Pendraken goodness: DN12 Giant fungus; DN38 Funguy; AC22 Pixies with large sword.

Cheers!

My natural inclination would be BLACK, but after a search of trumpet fungus decided to go for something a bit brighter!



The outsides will eventually be creamy white  Cheesy

Many things base-coated, some DN1 Grubs have decided to take up residence.  Painted these up over a year ago and wasn't really keen in them.  However, I think they'll fit in nicely!
