Thanks. It's nothing creative though. Just wanted to get them done as quick as I can so I decided to go with the original color scheme. My daughter is still enjoying super dungeon explore and can't wait to get this in the table.

In the game the monsters are casted white and red. One is harder to kill than the other. I'm trying to find out how I would differentiate the two if Im painting them in their original colors. Currently I plan on leaving the red rim on the red casted monsters.

Lunch time was spent filling in gaps and cleaning up some mold lines.



I even had enough time to prime. Looks like I get to paint a little tonight after work.



I hate it when you see missed mold lines after you've primed the miniature. Sometimes I look at the spray can to see if there's warning label saying, "May add undesired mold lines." I swear I cleaned them all up prior to priming it. cry

How do you do the zenithal white? Drybrush? Spray can? Air brush?

Aswin,

I spray can with black first, then I hold the spray can white where I want my light source to be and spray it in short bursts until I get the desired effect. It usually takes me about 3-4 short sprays.

Thanks for the interest.

Done! While we wait for my submission to be approved, here are some progress shots of tonights work.

I referenced the shadow dragon found on the last page of the rulebook to match the colors as close as I can. Here is what I came up with...

I airbrushed parts of the wing, his arms, and legs with Sanguine Base. Next, I mixed Thornwood Green, 3 drops blue ink, 3 drops red ink, 3 drops armor wash to paint the bottom half of the dragon (where the black primer was exposed).

For the highlight, I slowly added Beast Hide until I was satisfied with the color that would contrast it.



You can see in the picture above, the overhead lighting was too harsh so I washed the contrasting colors. Maybe they weren't contrasting enough. I felt it was still missing depth so I added 2 more drops of Armor Ink to the color and defined it's muscles and deepest creases.

I decided to move on and went with adding some "green glow" on his hind legs and under his wings. Wurm Green/2 drops Green Ink/2 drops Beast Hide



I also used this color as a shadow for his mouth.



Now we wait...

Cave Spider

Body Marking: Sanguine Highlight, Sanguine Base, Khador Red

The eyes were barely noticeable so I added a tiny dot of Menoth White Base on the upper portion of each eye.

what is the green stuff that you used for filling the gaps?
Is it glue or modeling stuff?

Umm, oddly enough, modellers indeed call the substance green stuff. It's two part putty used for sculpting and filling gap. Probably of Games Workshop brand.

We call it "green stuff" here because it is a two part epoxy (yellow/blue) that you mix together. I do not use the GW because it it over priced. I use Kneadtite brand bought from my local game store. Here is the link to the brand that I use:

http://www.polymericsystems.com/epoxies-adhesives/epoxy-putt...

I buy the tape version that comes in roll and just cut only the amount that I need.

Gorgeous! Very inspiring work.

I can't wait to start on my Descent, but so far we haven't been able to stop playing long enough to prime. We need to pick up the conversion set so that we can use our 1st ed painted figs while the new ones are "offline" for the paint job.

Whew...how time flies...(the sun is about to come up)
Here are some pics of what I did:

My typical start - black primer and 3 bursts of white primer from my desired light source. After that, I slap 2 thin coats of GW Tallarn Flesh, ensuring the primer is still visible from underneath.



I painted the rest of his skin with Tallarn Flesh. Taking a picture of the miniature also gives me a good reference of where my highlights and shadows should be.



Time to shadow! Using Sanguine Base mixed with Tallarn Flesh, I applied it to where the black primer was still showing on the skin tone. A little Black was added to the darker areas as well as the creases in his skin.



I returned to Tallarn Flesh and blended some of the harsh shadow lines.



Painted his toenails, fingernails, and teeth with Menoth White Base. Since I had the color open, I added some to Tallarn Flesh and started to highlight his skin. I also painted the hairs on his shin and forearm with Thornwood Green mixed with Thamar Black.



I proceeded to armor with Pig Iron and shadowing with Armor Wash. Then I carefully highlighted with Quick Silver. I also basecoated his fur with Umbral Umber mixed with some Black.



I slowly built up the fur mixing various amounts of brown using Idrian Flesh, Bloodstone, and Rucksack Tan.

I've never thought of priming different colours it's a nice idea. If my good lady wife gets me this for Christmas I might just try it certainly liking the work here especially the Eti.

Have you painted up anymore from the game?

Pedro,

Sorry for the lack of updates. All my games are currently on the boat to my next duty station, Okinawa. It will not be there until Jan 15th.

Thank you,
