Monday Miniatures: Hydra
This week we are talking a particularly large model. Models this big take a lot of time and a lot of patience. Given that level of commitment, I’m not surprised that we have had less participation this week than in the past.
Dwarfforge Caverns – If you want some RPG scenery for tactical combat, check this project out. The first one turned out great, and so far this one looks just as good.
MERCs – This is a Kickstarter to relaunch a previously published Mini combat game. While not exactly games workshop, this project isn’t exactly half a dozen guys in a garage either.
Just getting a good basecoat on this model and doing all the prepwork (gap filling, mold line removal) took hours. I’m thankful that a whole week is dedicated to doing the detail work on this one; I’ll need it. Still, even though it looks good to the eye while sitting on the table, the camera reveals gaps. I’ve still got a long way to go here.
Antonia and Dirk opted to skip the painting for now and focus on the base and a little sculpting. Note the single head removed, and the two new heads sprouting to take their place. This one is awesome, and I can’t wait to see how it looks when finished.
Jessica shows us a few great pictures of her process here, as she starts layering for effect. I can’t wait to see the rest of her walkthrough.
Hydra – Part 2 A whole week just to detail work think about it. I expect to see some really spectacular results from this one. Come on people – this is the week to blow me away. Send pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org by 3/23/14 at 9pm.
Village Rioter – Let’s see some OSL this week.
