I choose to believe that's not a sand kraken... just to top bits of Great Lord Cthulhu rising from his slumber in R'lyeh.

... or... perhaps a new mutation of Graboid. Whatever will we do now that Burt's dead?!

That is not dead, which can eternal lie / and with Strange aeons even death may die... Cthulu, I mean The Ancient One is one of the XXL figs for the game (along with Belial, who's somewhere between Lucifer and Hastur). Yeah, as for Graboids, there's an AWFUL lot of tentacles in this game - and no Kevin Bacon in sight!

It's funny you mention Cthulhu actually, as building is very much on my mind at the moment. With schools returning on 15th (which I'm honestly delighted about), my output will be decreasingly significantly - indeed you may have noticed it's tailed off a bit already - so I want to get as much stuff built and primed as is humanly possible in the time left. Currently sitting on the unbuilt pile are:
Trederran Mutants (there are 6, all monopose, so they'll need a bit of sculpting work also)
Trederran Legionnaires (6, 2 poses, so some variation in kit, pouches etc)
Trederran Lieutenants (3, monopose but with hand variants)
Trederran Battlefield Scatter - 3 crates, 3 tank traps
Resin Heroes + Alt sculpts
Spoiler:

Gunslingers - Female, Male #2 (Variant Mini) ; Ranchers - M/F #2 (Variant Mini); Bandida / Bandidos #2 (Variant Mini) ; Piano Player, Saloon Girl #2 (Variant Mini); Law Men - Female; Nun; Indian Scouts - Female; U.S. Marshals - Female; Outlaws M/F; Prospector - M/F; Orphan -M/F; Drifter - M/F ; Darkstone Shaman - M/F, Bear , Wolf
Gambler - M/F; Jargono Tribal Human - M/F; Frontier Doc - M/F; Cowboy - M/F; Wandering Samurai - M/F
- 29 figs to build and base though I've washed them all at least.
The Ancient One XXL
Belial XXL
AI: Avenger Strike Fighters (4)
Armada: Orc Fleet for (5, 4 from Starter, plus Large Ship - Smasha); Basilean Fleet (5, 4 from Starter - 2 built entirely, 2 hulls assembled - plus Large Ship - Abbess)

There's some odds and ends I printed up also, mostly for Star Wars: Bodhi, a Jawa, plus a plague Doctor I'm going to turn into a second Flesh Stalker for Shadows, and a tiny cowgirl for little miss to paint (well actually, she can paint the one that's already based and primed as it's 25mm, whereas the new one I've printed is closer to 28mm for SoB).

Painting wise, the priority is the Derelict Ship set. I want to have the full set "done" so we can completely explore it as an Otherworld - and I think, going forward, this is going to be my approach with painting.

Doesn't it look like a fun place?

Necronauts. Decided that I wanted to use gold for the helmet visors for a proper Apollo space vibe.

BEACON drones. Helpful little fellas.

Flesh stalker, one of the creepiest and most dangerous bosses in the game. He can biohack your characters mid fight.

I really enjoyed the many monochromatic layers.

And alongside my printed one, who'll get GS skirts down below the mdf base line to match the "real" one, and then mounted on a 40mm printed starship base. Speaking of which, I'm very pleased how the little deck details and stripes have turned out on everything also
So aside from the Gastral Tyrant, that's everything I own for Derelict Ship done. I don't have the gun turrets (pop-up gun fun!) or Flesh Drones (failed Stalker experiments) as they're coming sometime from the US - they were KS add-ons, so I'm lucky to betting them at all, really. Who's up for a game of Cowboys & Aliens?

They are pretty cool, and though monopose fairly easy to resculpt a bit.
aku-chan wrote:Love what you've done with the necronauts, they were my favourite SOB minis.

I really love them. They're so evocative.
So a quick head-count reveals I have about 100 SoB figs to paint that's actually not awful, really. Just so long as I don't look at the pledge manager for SoB adventures and ALL THE PRETTY THINGS
Coming to the end of our current campaign, confronting the Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath:

3 of our beloved henchmen died pretty horribly (it's called the Gruesome Fate table for a reason): Chastity, our soiled Dove, got spontaneously frozen and shattered, Faith the undead sexy cowgirl Preacher's daughter got finally eaten by tentacles from beyond, and Sparky the dog consumed by a Night Terror, leaving only Hope the Donkey (who also got smashed by tentacles, but miraculously survived with the aid of a Revive token). Good times lol
It was rather good that it introduced some real peril to the kids experience without them losing their characters they've been working on throughout lockdown. Small fry even wrote a "book" of our ongoing adventures yesterday, bless him... Not sure what his teacher made of it mind you now we just need to escape back to our world, race along rickety railroad tracks and... Out... Into the barren canyons of the old west, cos I'm not done with them yet older boy has twigged, at last, that I manipulate the adventures we play to create an overarching story, but as he says it means it all "Makes Sense". It's a game that lends itself to the grand narrative, for sure.
Another weekend of decorating beckons, porch and front door this time.

Hello again chums.
Well, been very busy between work, planning for the schools returning (up here, next weel) and another weekend of decorating. Basically shattered.

So, without energy to paint, it's that time, yet again, when I try somewhat in vain to take stock of my to-paint pile. Having seen others doing this, it's a bit grim, but there we go, it's the nature of the hobby. Still, it has motivated me to build my remaining SoB stuff. I was very unimpressed that the mutants were monopose, and the mutant lieutenant basically identical to the other variants, so...

Tentacle time! Got to love them.

The grenadiers, on the other hand, are a bit more modular (even if the lieutenants are not).

I may still add some more ww2 German pouches for variety. What I've done for now is placed their breathing apparatus differently (along with rebuilding the ones on the helms, as they're idiotically designed and half snapped during despruing), as I've decided that I will paint up at least two different Trederran factions, and though I'm not absolutely sure what the second one will be, it's likely to be the yellow of the Rebels or the purple of the Order. I like the grey/greens of the main faction but I fancy a change. Going to added some barbed wire to the bases, and use Stirland Mud for the mucky goo.
What? Not enough tentacles? MOAR tentacles you say? Fine.

Yes, the Ancient One itself, Cthulhu by any other name. He's a big fella, standing 16.5 cm to the top of his wing. A very well-designed, stable kit - the FFP plastics are really good builds. However, even he is dwarfed by Belial, Lord of the Pit, demon of fire and shadow, yellow king... Belial is mahossive, nearly 21cm high and just extraordinary. The fact he even has fully poseable arms is a huge bonus - it's just an extraordinary thing. To really bring out the best in him, I may add printed a ring of fire around the base. The blacksmith in front is there for scale, he's about 35mm, printed him the other day.

Speaking of Belial, we ran into him (well, the Shade of Belial, his weakened form manifesting in our world) as the culmination of our lockdown campaign.

It did not end well

A mate has convinced me to go halves on a warlord pledge for SoB adventures ah well, at least it'll keep me busy

So fully posable you seem to have exactly the same pose on your Belial as I do

FFP are getting better with their plastics. The Tredarans were not great; though still much better than the single piece bandits in the town expansion

Oh, those bloody bandits! I have got a set of really nice STLs, however - the good, the bad and the ugly - to deal with that, so I have a bit of variety if I am so minded. It's very noticeable how good, say, the new XLs are (Magma Giant, Gastral Tyrant) compared to an early plastic. OTOH, some troublemaker gave me a bunch of the plastics free, so I shouldn't really complain. Not really

I know! but it's ok, we found another good doggie down the mine.

I think part of the allure of SoB is there is such a variety of minis and aesthetics. You can just totally channel hop to a different era - almost like a different game entirely - and still be working towards the same overall goal.

Theophony wrote:You are driving me nuts with the quality of the resin printer and with all these SoB models. I have such little time right now even to surf the DakkaDakka and then drool over the possibilities.

Well you're most kind. Your work just now is excellent indeed. I have had to give the LCD a very thorough, very gentle clean with alcohol wipes. So here's hoping the next batch of prints works just as well as the rest have after the general disaster of last time. At some point I'm going to try printing the APC from ALIENS, which a guy on BGG has designed for printing on the Elegoo, so that's fairly exciting also.

Talking of both SoB and prints, a little (well, not-so-little) something:

Second plastic Goliath, painted as The Terror from Beyond the Stars, on a printed "summoning" base. This was entirely at the kids' request and hey, who am I to argue? I am working on a new photo set-up, far from there yet, but better than previous.

Finally tracked down the Dark Stone Scorpions for SoB, which means that I've pretty much got everything for the base / Old West game that's been released so far no Skitarri Nomads or Deluxe Depth Track yet, but that's it, I think. However, I'm not going to full-throttle into the next KS, as I'm less interested in the Conquistador/Swamps stuff than the Vikings (because I mean COME ON! Vikings! Trolls! GIANTS!) Vikings in Space sounds like a muppet show sketch, come to think of it... That being said, I've picked up a couple more Reaper Serpentmen, just to add some pose variety. There's a bit of a lack of good free serpentmen STLs - especially archers - and the continued joy of being able to turn Nectar points (supermarket loyalty points) into eBay vouchers for odds and ends is a revelation. It's LITERALLY free toys

Back to work Monday, and feel like I've never been busier it's a bit mental, but ok. Cannae wait

Many thanks, and appreciate the comment about the eyes, spent a long time on them

Sooooo...
A little progress, yes?

The serpentmen of Jargono and Shaman. Wanted them to be cohesive yet show a mix of tribes also. I really love these models, but I'll be adding to their ranks with Reaper Serpentmen for variety - plus they scale perfectly (Serpentman with the spear is the reaper one). And they're not the only unit done:

Undead Outlaws and gunslinger. Just battering through the hordes at this stage. As I say, a little progress. I realise that this is the oddity of how I work, it looks like sudden bursts of activity. There's lots of stuff in stages on the go and it's really just a case of rattling through the shelf of shame:

Next will be the regular outlaws (nasty horrible monopose plastics, we hates it HATES IT) and then... Who knows lol. One piece of jolly news is that my Green Lantern Corps and Krypto have finally cleared customs (although bizarrely Sinestro corps have not) so they'll be with me soon, hurrah. In case I need a super-break from the cowboys etc.
Did some printing today, having replaced the FEP for the first time (now that's a bloody time-consuming job), a T-800, Nightcrawler, Venom and Carnage for a mate. The first one I went to remove was carnage... And sliced straight into my hand how very fitting

Working away, it's pretty hectic and deeply odd. Kids are generally quite muted.

Well now, in our ongoing campaign, we confronted the Shade of Belial the Shadow King, so have decided that - despite barely escaping with our lives and sanity intact, and all of us mutated horribly - it is our duty to track him down in his realm and wipe his scourge from creation. There's a great scenario which ends with the apocalypse - if you lose, your characters get transported to another realm (Blasted Wastes) but I may even have this happen to our characters regardless (epic heroic send-off). This means a quest to the Caverns of Cynder, aka Daddy needs to paint all the denizens of hell. First up, hell vermin:

I've gone with a regular colour scheme, to match the mutant scourge rats, rather than the hellhound variant as they can be encountered all over. The rest of Cynder's inhabitants, or at least that I own (magma fiends are stuck in import/export hell, carrion Phoenix hasn’t had a retail release yet) are the Lost Souls (done!), and...

Hellfire Succubi. I enjoyed these more than I expected, but I had a very specific plan for them (yay Vallejo heavy dark red). The hellfire witch proxy is a 3D printed tiefling sorceress, and I’m pretty happy with her too. Yes, she’s not nekkit, but I’ll live

Lava Men. Ah, lumpy fellows. The joy / terror of reverse drybrushing I actually rather love them, I think the lava effects really worked on them. And, the big daddy...

The Magma Giant, big brute that he is. Happy with the hands in particular, less so with the central eye.

Which just leaves Belial himself, of course. I'm aiming to focus my attentions on him but, who knows... I am creature of whimsy, after all. I need to plan out exactly which scenarios we’re going to do, I want it to feel like we have to explore to find a route to Cynder first, culminating in the Belial mission, followed by the seal the cracks in reality. The characters are about halfway to level 7 (characters cap at level 8, basically), so that translates into about 4 games to get to the finale double, and I want at least one of those to be finding a “way in” to Cynder as a realm. Decisions, decisions lol. I’m tempted to have them find a rumour of a way in only to find themselves in Blasted Wastes, the alien other worlds, and have to find a gate from there to somewhere else again first, maybe the derelict ship, and literally escape to hell. Libera Tutame Derelict Ship stuff is all painted bar the Gastral Tyrant (xenomorph centipede... thing ) but no wasteland stuff is done. Suggestions on story nonsense gratefully received no knowledge of SoB required, just think old west and horror tropes. The worlds are Old West mines, Old West canyons, frozen alien city, mythic meso American swamps, abandoned spaceship, Krieg style warzone, post apoc wasteland, and hellscape. I'm thinking about them tracking keys down across different realities or something. Interested to hear your thoughts, mes amis.

Both the Lava Men and the Magma Giant are essentially elementals, yeah. Not "cool" though they spew lava and leave hellfire in their wake. Bloody nuisance. I do indeed play a lot, or at least try to and SoB works well for hobby ADHD as it's so varied.
Gitsplitta wrote:There's an eye?



Speaking of which, I have planned out (mostly) our second big SoB campaign, "Through the Gates of the Cynder Key", which gives me a clearer paint-queue to attend to:
1) Void Sorcerers (3) and Void Magus
2) Black Fang Tribe (6) and War Shaman
3) Trederran everything (20 plus scatter terrain)
4) Belial
I've gone about things in a slightly bassackwards fashion as the Cynder stuff I've painted won't really see play till the second half of the campaign (the missions after Trederra but before Belial himself), but at least the Void Hounds are painted, leaving just their dark masters to do, and the various monsters to be encountered alongside Black Fang are likewise all done. There's no regular figure for the War Shaman, only yet another resin promo (shady, FFG, shady) so rather than printing something (like I did for the Void Magus, Vampire Lord, Hand Inquisitor and Hellfire witch - though fun side note, turns out the official model for that isn't nekkit either, magic negates the need for nudity it seems) or converting (like the Werewolf packmaster and Lost Army Generalissimo) I'll use this as motivation to paint the Hero Dark Stone Shaman figure. After all, I need *some* reason to paint the other characters
So without further ado (or, a-don't)... Masters of the Void!

Yeah that'll do and the printed Illithid Sorcerer with GS hood fits right in as a Magus.
So just got to chip away now at the pile. Black Fangs next, and then to trudge through Krieg, I mean, Trederra!
Onwards, mes amis,
