@Llamahead, I hope you didn’t cheat and tell him he missed every time he hit the bullseye .

@Viterbi, I am pleased with how he turned out, so much so that even my new Ito guys are having a hard time of keeping my attention. The Not-Dwayne Johnson’s may get painted next .

Well, got some free time, so I painted a two headed snake ....not something you hear often.


He has a few gaps and flash spots, but I am no professional....and didn’t see them till too far in. He is also a lot of points 25 I believe and a huge target being a 50mm base.

Thanks Graven, have t decided the secondary color for the base as I do two for facings.

The first of the blessed, and probably the one that caused me to order Ito instead of buying the Shiho clan stuff.

Akame


With a size comparison. She is on a 30mm and he is a 50mm. Some of the other snake people are on 40mm bases, so really gives the army some flavor just with sizes.

Both of those are great characters! Some of the brown spots on the two headed serpent may look better if a bit darker, then dry brushed the lighter colour? They are quite pale in places

Looking at him this morning the whole model was lighter. I guess all the wash had dried and shrunk back, so another all over coat of sepia for big snake.

Also started on Yuui, I like the bluish scales, I think they came out well.

Also changed the gold on the weapons to iron warrior steel.

Thanks guys,

You might be able to see in the background that I have washed the snake two more times with sepia, I think he’s to a good color tone now.

Very little time and access to my painting area, which means that I think....yes that burning smell was my brain. A while back I picked up two boxes of Afghani fighters by wargames Atlantic. That was 80 models that I got for $35, you got to love miniature market dent sales . I didn’t really have a plan for them, but I was flipping through the Kings of War books and wanting to use my 3D printer to make the greater Earth Elementals. Then I though let’s make a whole earth elemental army as I saw some cool paint schemes, but I needed shooters....let’s make a desert themed elemental army and have the Afghani guys be tribal hunters and use the rifles as shortbows .

I started to think of unique basing instead of just sand, and then checking Facebook...I saw a post from Epicbasing.com. They have stl files for Cacti, perfect. So I bought two files, cussed at my printer a bit, and here we go.

A quick paint up with some dry brushing.

Big snake in the back for the color.

Computer is getting so out of date that slicing is becoming an issue. My iPad also is so old that it cannot take new updates. Got to hold off until Christmas.

Thanks guys, the basing bits are great, I'm just having a of a time with my printer. I'm sure I need to change the clear plastic sheet on the bottom of my tank as the one i have has a couple bad spots. I know I have replacements somewhere, but with everything going on I haven't been around my stuff in so long I forgot where. Also after I posted I received the link to my kickstarter rewards for a great basing .stl that i saw but was too busy at the time to post about it.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/where-legends-stand/where-legends-stand-relaunch/description. lots of different styles of bases with 5 different formats for each style: round,square, both with spots for magnets underneath and then all the styles as just base toppers. Supported and unsupported for all. I went in at the $20 level with the intent on putting the forest bases to work on my Ito clan guys, but now I am on a Kings of War mindset, so I may finally assemble some more Sylvaneth dryads to make a tree herder army on the forest bases. Also looking at using the underwater bases as desert bases and just remove the corals and add the cacti to it.

far too much to think about.

Crummy day at work, just fixing other peoples stupid errors from the last year. It actually has me rethinking this job. I think the one Doctor realizes just how bad things were being kept up and is happy to have me, but on the same spectrum I wonder how it was functioning before I got here and I am hearing that it wasn't....so hard decisions coming up. Not sure I can keep trying to right this ship.

Oh and I found out that there are 2 weddings and a Funeral at our church over the next two weeks that I have not been looped in on, but they have made promises for me . Fun all around.

Well after many troubled prints, I tried to schange my FEP film, and ended up breaking the trim ring that holds it in place . I ordered a new resin VAT and it got delivered last night, hopefully I will be able to use it this weekend as my wife and basement stealing daughter will be in Indianapolis for a Lacrosse tournament. I will be home with the other two kids and a basement all to myself Mwah hahahaha!

The elemental army is developing in my mind as I have been so busy and exhausted this week with regular work being a nightmare, a wedding and a funeral thrown in just for an extra curveball. So I am thinking of developing the elementals into both Earth and Air elementals in the army. or making the air ones look like sand elementals/monsters.

Also as I just saw it mentioned in the N&R section a company called Gamergrass.com. Putting it here as a chance to remind myself. They are in Portugal, but I have always found GW and Army Painter grasses to be lackluster to say the least.

Also trying to develope an Idea for using the Sylvaneth I have. I just am torn between making them as a AOS army and making it as a KoW army.

Oh well. Sorry for rambling, just more of getting things out of my mind and onto paper/page.

that'd be GamersGrass.com. Gamergrass goes to a slightly suspect site, so be careful

That's one thing I don't have to worry about on my Photon S; the trim ring that holds the FEP is made of metal so I don't think I could break it even if I tried. Changing the FEP is a major pain in the ass though. Here's hoping that was what was causing your prints to fail and you start having more success after all that mess!

Thanks, the new tank with metal ring and new FEP has done the trick. Proof is in the Resin.

Printed these guys up just now that I got a few precious moments in the basement.

Also just printed some base toppers which are in the cure machine as I type. I hope this weekend I can get some time on a Kings of War army. Changing gears as it will be a force of nature army using my sylvaneth models.

The cacti will get their time in the sun (pun intended) soon.

Into the Wild. Sylvaneth Kurnoth Hunter as a test model. Need to fix where the tree trunks attach to the base.


Tree trunks are 3D printed from epicbasing.com, same guy who did the cacti designs.

Thanks guys, definitely going more natural for these guys, though I a man still looking at other possibilities for colors.

While already jumping to the next project , I backed a new patreon for Lostkingdom miniatures. This months $13 subscription is for new Magmohorin (Chaos Dwarves), but this et is very 300 inspired with the king on a palaquin similar to the movie with slaves holding it high up, and the Chaos Dwarf immortals with chained up huge guy in the center of the unit. Also a couple war machines that are ridiculous . Eventually there will be more Chaos Dwarves to make an Abyssal Dwarf army with. They did a kickstarter a ways aback and there is just too many amazing sculpts to not make a army with it.

The patreon also came with a welcome bundle which turned out amazing. I didn’t see any previews of it, but there were extra models in it that were not listed, one of which will work as a Druid for the Sylvaneth army. I missed printing one piece, it will be on the next plate after this one finishes.
,
Beautiful model. Comes with the base in either round or square. As I think this army will be for Kings of War I went with square.

Speaking of basing. I added some of the treestumps from Epicbasing.com to a shrunk down base from the Where Legends stand Kickstarter.

Same base just rotated 180 and added the extra stumps and stirland mud. Still needs drybrushing on them.

Wife and daughter just home from the Lacrosse tournament.she moved to a brand new team this year...they came in last, but they played against teams that have been together for multiple years, so I say they did fine.

Excellent work as always and really like the resin figures you're turning out. A resin printe ris undoubtedly in my future, but I'm restraining the urge to buy oen given how busy things are right now, and how many painting projects, kitbashes and FDM projects are lined up waiting.

I played lacrosse in high school, good on your daughter and yes, being a newly organized team is a definite factor: "it's a building year" is a thing. Our coach described it as a chance for a bunch of people to hit each other with sticks and a ball thrown in the middle as cover. In history class in New York State we learned that the five Nations (later six) of the Iroquois Confederacy (the Houdanassanee) played massive games of lacrosse to settle disputes, sometimes with hundreds of warriors to each side. The game could go on for days and often resulted in serious injury and death. Your kid is plenty tough to play!
