Hi all!!, i was working in the Thri-Kreen warrior project, i sent the first one to Sirrob for the Hoard. Somebody says that was waiting to see how they look like, because of this i´m posting a pic of the final mini of the first thri-kreen warrior. If someboby want more of this bug guys just wait a little because i´m working in others, but i got less time because i´m back to work this week. I hope you like it.
Very, very nice, Reivaj. I was hooked on this masterpiece when I first saw its blank unshaded form on the Hoard. And with colors now: amazing . Very subtle shading. Small skin dots etc. One of the best minis I've seen so far for sure.
One suggestion: I've read some Thri-Kreen-lore lately (to learn what you are working on) and there are some kind of double blade weapons mentioned if I got it right - polearms with blades on both ends !? Hardcore D&D guys would love it ... .
Sorry for my lateness, but the last two weeks i´m back in the work and i have the half of time. Sirrob and verminking: i was trying to do that but i don´t know if i´ll have the time to complete an army. I´ll try. For now, here is a pic of the second Thri-kreen without the black border, this one is with a standart (<-- i don´t know if this word is ok). I hope you like it
I have not seen any adult Thri-kreen pic with wings, i just saw thri-kreen larvae pic flying. But if you allow me to not be faithful to what is known about the Thri-kreen, I'll make some Thri with wings. I liked the suggestion tommy. thanks
If you reverse the mini verticaly it will correctly matches with the front. Look the arms, left one is higher than the right one. I´m working in others warriors, another big one. After finish them i´ll try some archers. Thanks for the comments
Reivaj - those Bugs are really, really well done !!! I especially like the shape/pose of the strong one. But I think, Mr useless is right: there is no way those front/back parts could match without mirroring correctly. Do you mean that ? Front and Back - horizontally aligned - must be mirrored vertically.
Here is the same pic but i only reverse the back pic verticaly and puted it down the front. It match. Sorry if i can´t make me understand by you correctly, sometimes i don´t know how to say somethings (i talk spanish here in Argentina)
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
