While I haven’t posted in what feels like forever, it’s only been a little more than a week in actuality. I’ve finished quite a lot more random bits of scenery, somewhat following-up from my last post which dealt with a similar theme (at least in the pictures). I’ve just got to take some photos, and hopefully tomorrow will be the day!
In the meantime, I’ve been rooting around in my resin bits boxes for more stuff I can knock out quickly, and found these two little beasties. I must have had them for 10 years or more, and in all that time they’ve done nothing but sit inside a few boxes. Time for some paint, then. I figure I’ll treat them much like Bones critters and resin scenery, in that good enough will be good enough – but I’m just not sure on how to paint them yet. I figure I’ll post them here, and in a day or two I’ll have them based properly and can then knock them out reasonably quickly once I see what feedback and ideas people have.
Looks like these are also from Grendel – as so much of my old resin stuff is – These are two of the three critters from the Dungeon Crawlers kit. Giant Centipede and “Leech”. I kinda prefer my own names though. I don’t know where the third one of the trio has disappeared to. I’m sure I’ll find it one day.
This is also my first use of Polls on this thing, though it’s not why I’m writing this post. Naturally, I reserve the right to ignore any results or change my mind on how I paint these little buggers. I’ll also be taking feedback from Dakka and any other forums I post on into consideration besides the feedback here.
For the Yellow/Black and Black/Yellow, I’m thinking of a pattern inspired by this sort of thing, with the emphasis either on the yellow or the black.
For the slimy green on Froggie, I’m thinking something like the out-of-focus bits of this pic:
The red would be more akin to:
Assuming I finally get some photos taken tomorrow, I should have some more substantive posts up in a day or three.
