Working on Ika Clan

13 04 2017

I haven’t posted since the New Year, but I have been quite busy with painting and terrain building. With the semester winding down, I hope to post some of my progress in the next few weeks,  but for now here is a trio from the Ika clan.

 

Madoushi, Kunoichi, and Oni

 

In a campaign mode Ninja All Stars really wants to be able to differentiate each model, and so I am trying to paint up each model with some distinct characterizations.

Also, notice the custom player boards for Super Dungeon Explore that they are all standing upon. I’ll hopefully have a tutorial up on these soon as well.

Booty in the New Year

9 01 2017

It may come as a surprise, but one of the things that originally drew me to Super Dungeon Explore was the cute mimic minis. The original Boo Booty was a great miniature and a fun game element. When Forgotten King (aka SDE 2.0) came out last year, the previous singular Boo Booty became the genus for three separate species: Bouncing Booty, Booty Biter, and Booty Grinder. Clearly, this required custom minis…

It’s kind of funny that it took me a year to mod some minis for these custom mimics. It’s not like I still have a hundred ninjas to paint or anything…





Star Guild Sapper Mario

A few months back I posted my Princess Ruby Peach for Super Dungeon Explore. Today I bring you her bae Star Guild Sapper Mario.





Ninjas!

16 06 2016

I’ve been painting up basic shrine teams for Ninja All Stars.  I picked up the Elemental Pledge on the kickstarter last year but added the Spirit and Earth shrines for some basic ninjas. When the fine folks at Ninja Division game all the shrine cards to their backers, I opted to paint the ninjas in neutral colours (black and white) so they can be used for any clan.

Madoushi

Kunoichi

Yajiri

Kaiken

The paint scheme is very basic, but it’s sufficient for demo games.

Now, all I have to do is paint four clans, six samurai, and fourteen ronin…





Steampunk Gnome

28 05 2016

Three things I love: Gnomes, Steampunk, and Super Dungeon Explore. Unfortunately, I couldn’t have all three at the same time since Soda Pop Minis hasn’t yet blessed us with chibi gnomes.  However, I seem to have been bit by the scratch-built bug. Here’s my first attempt at sculpting: a steampunk chibi gnome for Super Dungeon Explore.

I made a lot of mistakes on this little guy, but that’s to be expected. Look for more in the future.





Rattlebones

24 02 2016

Ah, the Rattlebone undead skeleton creeps. The glowing eyes look better from far above.

These miniatures are part of the Von Drakk Ghost House tile pack. I have recently received both the tile pack and the Von Drakk Manor level box.

My plan on all the SDE skeletons in general is being tested out here: Prime black; progressive drybrushings of colour; pick out some highlights and OSL; and wash fabrics. I want to keep the colours muted and the look ragged. This is quite different than the brilliant colours I use for other areas, but these are centuries-old skeletons, not vibrant sentient plants.





Princess Ruby and Jack Scarecrow

23 02 2016

Slowly working through my painting backlog. I’m working through Caverns of Roxor, but focussed on Princess Ruby first because of the current Valentine’s Day “Paint the Target” challenge over at Lost Hemisphere. Hopefully I’ll have more to show by months end.

Speaking of paint the target, I had painted up Jack Scarecrow last month but hadn’t posted it here.
