Finished up the last of the Zenit Kensei Rising/Khitai figures I'm going to do for now (although these 'elites' were fun, and I want to see how I do painting up a regiment of Dong cavalry or Dhao swordsman). This is the noble who owns the villa:





And a group shot (as my Napoleonic mentors said "in mass lies perfection" [I just need more 'mass' ]:









Already working on finishing up the Tree House/Fort and have started the base colors for the first of the Yokai from the Reaper Bones V campaign that I figure to paint up for now.

More follows soonest.

I like your new painted up noble, and it's especially fun seeing the whole group together. Looking forward to seeing the masses infantry units when you get to them.

Finished up the first Yokai from the Reaper Bones V campaign tongiht:









I have a feeling that this one is going to wind up joining the chibi ponies once Lipstick-6 gets a look, which is fine by me. I like being able to use the villa as a setting for photos, too.

Worked on other Yokai, the tree house/fort and a robot mechanic for a previous LOER project tonight as well, so should hopefully have more to show tomorrow.

More follows soonest, regardless.

The yokai is looking good, Meer I'm glad to see someone else painting Reaper Bones V. The yokai is suprisigly cute. Is it the "baku" yokai? It would fit well with the ponies

Thanks, Syro! Yes, I believe this one is the baku, and I'm pretty sure I know who is going to be on the tire swing at the treehouse once Lipstick-6 gets a look!

I finished up the Celtic Tree House/Fort from Iain Lovecraft's Celtic Village .stl set:





Had more fun doing up the base than I expected; the base itself is one of those wooden decoupage ovals you get from Walmart for a buck:



The little colored bits are candy sprinkles I haven't used since I built belted ammunition for the SPAAG tank a couple years ago; not sure if I'll pick some off or all off- maybe the colors at least and leave white, yellow- they were supposed to be flowers or mushrooms or something fairy-like:



28mm figures fit (this one is on a 30mm square base):







And even the Yokai seems to like the place:

Very cool concept and paint job. Wish I had more time lately to look in and be more supportive but my days are tight.

You're doing fine Theo- I appreciate you taking the time to drop even a quick note. I understand entirely- for a period I was mostly incommunicado dealing with various things (and not nearly the load you are right now). I know I have friends here and that's plenty more than I had before contributing to Dakka.

I like the tree house Meer, for a split second the thumbnail looked like Baba Yaga's hut to me until my brain caught up with my eyes
I also like seeing the little baku at the base of the tree.

Thanks Syro! I used four different layers/washes of paint trying for a dark sycamore sort of effect, lots of fun trying new things but does add time. I have .stl files for a chicken legged hut, that may have to be the next print project!

Finished another Yokai from the Reaper Bones 5 Kickstarter. This one is called an 'okka'.







The okka and baku together:

Nice not frog and not elephant Yokkai

I keep forgetting I picked up a boardgame called Okka a few weeks ago off the dinged and dented shelves at Miniature market. Obviously very Japanese/samurai oriented. I'll wind up posting pictures at some point. You might want to look into it as there is a comic series that the game is based on, might find additional items to help with creativity if you get bogged down like I do time to time.

That is very good advice, Theo- I'll look into it. Reaper didn't ID the Yokai in their set- there are eight different and no label on base, etc. I found a website: www.yokai.com that is actually quite literary in its treatment of the subject. The site owner is an author and translator of Japanese folklore and has a ton of information on everything folk tale related and especially yokai. There is a link index across the top of the page, if you hover the mouse over a letter, all the yokai with names that start with that letter show in a drop down box. There is also a 'Find Yokai' search engine to go through the database if you have a name or shape. Overall, I was impressed with the thoroughness and seriousness of the site. Lots of pictures, too.

I've two more yokai I'm working on to get the painting desk clear and then I'll have to really pick the next unfinished project to wrap up- I'm really thinking the junkyard/delivery service garage thing needs to get off my shelf.

More follows soonest.

Howdy Cam- thank you for dropping in; you were the first Dakka to ever comment on my thread and you're now the most current person! It is good to have you back on the P&M board.

I liked the look of the Asian themed buildings from Iain Lovecraft's kickstarter, but in typical fashion, my 'pilot excursion' into 3d printing got a little over-inflated and yielded the 2' x 2' walled villa. Which couldn't be allowed to remain empty, hence a nobleman, soldiers, warrior monks and yokai.

I'm actually entering a kick to wrap up a bunch of older projects, with an eye towards being able to participate in an upcoming LOER. I would really like to add the medallion of a full member- and not just a competitor- into my sig file. So, a couple of more sciency-fictiony pieces to knock out and then who knows?

Thank you for the kind words!

Two more yokai from the Reaper Bones V kickstarter set:

Inugami (Dog Spirit)





Shogoro (Gong Spirit)



The whole gang (Baku, Shogoro, Inugami, Okka)



I'm finding the www.yokai.com site to be fascinating reading; the author has done quite a bit of research and includes origins of the different spirits, their natures and short folk tales about them. You can search the site by name, prefecture (in China, India or Japan) or by animal or object. I used this latter method as I had no idea what or where these yokai might be from, so looked up 'dog spirit and found that the picture and description of an Inugami was very close to my figure and likewise looked up objects, sure enough found gong listed and came to the Shogoro.

These are just my best guesses and I may not be right, so if there are others who are more knowledgeable of these spirits, I would be grateful for any edifying information.

The two new yokai look good Meer The inugami is very cute. I like the eyes especially. Did you paint on white dots for eye shine or is that actual light reflecting?

I don't know much about yokai,and I expect that whole area has similar mythological roots, but all the names so far sound very Japanese if that helps (Including the word yokai itself).

A lot to catch up on, really cool to see some people and lots of great yokai populate the villa and the fantastic treehouse!

Thank you for looking in, Syro and Viterbi!

Syro: The glint in the inugami's eyes is reflected light. I tried painting a hentai-looking eye and could never get it to look right, so just painted the whole eyeball gloss black and it came out looking just like I wanted- go figure! I'm enjoying learning more about yokai on the website and will probably purchase some of the books of yokai stories and legends that the author offers. And you're right: it looks like the yokai and all their mythology is a strictly Japanese thing; certain of the yokai characters come from China and India, where they are very different types of spirits. The baku is one, the name comes from China but as a yokai is completely Japanese. I find it interesting that all peoples from around the globe have similar types of creatures at some point in their civilization: Japanese yokai, Russian damovoi, Native American (Huron) canoti (literally: wood elves).

Viterbi: Thank you for the kind words! Where else can you find 41st Millennium rivets, Celtic treehouses and Japanese sprites all in one place!

Next up is finishing off a LOER project from long ago (said in a Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome voice: 'I'm lookin' behind us now.').

More follows soonest.
