  1. Another great mini from this game. The right choice was made to keep the depiction more classic in nature with such an important member of the Pantheon. He looks just right.
  2. It’s all about the owl on this one. At least for me... 🙂 Usual disclaimers apply; I’m painting for the table, not a display case, and I’m always trying to follow the game art as best I can.
  3. Kinda rough paint job in some areas. I over shaded her in areas and then picked the worst brush I could have to do some of the dry brushing. I might do some more work to rescue her, but I’m trying to keep a good pace getting MB finished and table ready.

    Compendium Late pledge FLUENT

    Ah, I see. That is a bummer for all the fans outside of the US and Europe. The end date was clear from the outset, but I agree that as we approached April 19th Monolith should have openly communicated that they did not find a better shipping option for other territories, if only to help remind people that they’d need to at least order their PDF version before the deadline. Hopefully more new issues are produced in the future and then Monolith can again offer all the issues to backers/fans. Communication is key, and I concur that Monolith could always improve on that front.

    Hyperborean Primitive

    I guess I’ll share this old WIP picture of my Primitive. I think I worked him a little more after this, and I’m not overly thrilled with this paint job. If I recall, I was in the home stretch for the base game and KS exclusive stuff and I was moving really fast.

    Pandemonium! (Show your demons)

    I almost always prime a solid white layer unless the final mini demands a black primer (like Cerberus or the aliens in Intruder), and then when the minis needs a white color it’s already there. For example, with the skeletons and mummies from Conan, the bones and bandages were already base-coated and just needed some ink wash for me to be happy. I found the mummies to be super easy to paint for this game. Flesh, swords, skirt, shade it all, done.

    Missing pics?

    @Matt John S, It seems like a random smattering of older pics are missing. At least when I look at the topic on a mobile device. Look at the thread for ‘Show Your Conan’. Some are there, many simply show a file name and no pics...?

    Pandemonium! (Show your demons)

    By the musk of Crom’s short and curlys, he looks awesome @Not Quite Dead! I’m not terribly thrilled with my painted version of the Dark Demon, and he’s not really one of my favorite minis in the game (kind of cartoony for my tastes), but you’ve made him look damn fierce and interesting. I think you nailed the trick with painting black minis, kind of a reverse of most minis, the shading is already done after the basecoat and one just needs to attend to the highlights. Great work!
  9. @Not Quite Dead, yeah black is kinda tricky. I’m no expert, but I’ve had some decent results by relying on highlighting/dry brushing. Either prime or basecoat the minis in black, and then dry brush all the raised sections with a lighter color. Something in the blue range seems to work and compliment the black. For Cerberus I mixed Vallejo Azure (kind of a muted, greyish blue) with a tiny touch of black, and then simply dry brushed his face and body. It worked great on the Crows in the Nordheim expansion too. I wouldn’t look at my Dark Demon as a success (he turned out pretty sloppy), but that’s pretty much what I did with him too. Any experts out there want to weigh in?

    Missing pics?

    @SentMa, @Matt John S... Seems like pictures from many older posts are missing. Is there something going on with the website?
  11. Incredibly satisfying to have such a large mini that is so damn easy to paint. It took me about an hour to have this guy basically done. I fiddled about for a little longer to try and tweak him, but there wasn’t much else to do. Black primer, some dark blue dry brushing and then just a few details. Obviously an expert level painter can go much further with such an nice model, but I’m trying to wrap up my MB stuff before the 1.5 update arrives. Hmm... maybe Atlas or the Hoplites next?

    Compendium Late pledge FLUENT

    Monolith was very straightforward about the offer. The pledge manager was only going to be open for a short time, and they responded to the demand for a PDF version by making that an option. People complained about the cheap shipping on the first Compendiums, so they offered better shipping with tracking this time, so people complained about the price, and thusly they absolutely DID offer a cheap PDF option. Now people are finding new things to be upset over? It really seems that Monolith can only do wrong by some as they try to offer after-campaign support for their games. What exactly is the complaint here?
  13. He looks awesome @garbetsp!
  14. Another fantastic mini from MB! They’ve added a lot of awesome flair to so many of these mythological characters which really makes them stand out as unique, despite the fact that these creatures have been depicted a million times already in historical and pop culture. As usual, painting for the game table, and generally following the game art for color schemes (difficult to do as the game art has so many lighting effects)...
  15. Went a little more vibrant than the game art. Given that I have usually kinda sucked at painting the ladies in my mini-based games, I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. Another great sculpt from this game. I don’t think there is a single weak mini in the box. So fantastic!
