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)

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
