Some World of Twilight
« on: December 21, 2016, 09:52:55 PM »
I backed latest World of Twilight KS with a mate, I simply fell in love with these fantasy dinosaurs. I'm opening a thread to post what I'm doing out of the minis, both mine and the ones my mate comissioned to me.
First thing, the flying creatures, Frenu, Kaopi and Kosok. The way I'm approaching this, after some debate with my friend, is by the code word 'Avatar' ::). You may despise the movie, but some concepts and art are really inspiring. So that means... colour explosion:



Predominance of cold colours, as in the movie, but with some reds and yellows for variety sake. After some failed attempts, I went through this kind of pattern:







I dared more colourful patterns on the larger creatures, drawing inspiration from actual Amazonian frogas, lizards and others.



So that's a matter of basing then!



Some close-ups:






A family pic:



This is but a start, let's see what I do next.

You can find them all with some more explanations here:

More stuff soon!

A colourful and explosive start. Liking the look you've achieved.

Always great to see Twilight miniatures and I love the schemes you've gone with along with the basing.

You got the avatar feel down alright. I thought of that the moment I saw the pictures. Like you say, while the story may have been lacking it does contain a lot of good inspiration as well. I had the idea of doing a Hordes of the Things setup with avatar, either using 6mm sci-fi for the marines and 10mm fantasy elves (painted blue) for the locals, or 15mm sci-fi and 1/72 Indians.
Seeing these flying critters executed so nicely brings back a lot of juice to pick up that project again...

Honestly, the smaller fliers remind me of the Fire Lizards from the Pern series for some reason...and the Paradragons I've used in D&D games for years now

These look great - very colourful!  :)

Not to be "that guy", but it looks like the wingtip of the large blue one has been scuffed. :(

Have you played the game yet?

Thank you! :)

Ouch, you are totally right! :? I missed that! Thank you!
I haven't played yet, I'm terribly slow on every hobby issues lately :'(

What I've done is painting a few more lizards! :P

I'm exploring the palette and trying to decide what works better. I've found that blue looks nice on their skin so long, but I'm getting also tempted by warm colours...



These little guys are cute :), I've opted for the swarm approach:



The pic is awful as usual >:(, there is a little more to the eye, I promise ::)

I'm currently with more of the tiny critters, I hope to have some done by the week!

Thanks, gents :)
I've been onto some more of them:







I'd like to think I'm daring to do more challenging schemes, but still long road ahead. Some overhead shots:







Enormously enjoyable, believe me :)

I've been neglecting this thread, shame on me. I finished the little critters, each one more flamboyant than the previous :D











http://oldschoolworkshop.blogspot.com.es/2017/01/tiny-muppets-of-twilight.html

The very concept of each one of them is truly amusing, I love how they can look so cute but able to chomp on your leg at the same time ;D

My latest progress has been the very mini that caught my eye and got me into the KS. It's a riding merchant. As I'm doing mine and my pal's, I took two very different approaches (I never suffer doing two absolutely identical minis :D).



So my pal will get the untouched model, while I keep the sci-fi one. The parasol was the main focus point for me, an unusual element that will eventually draw your eye attention. I thought it was worth of trying something different from the usual, so I went for two versions on a similar motif.



The sakura one was for the flashy mini, I believe it asked for some soft colour as a counterpoint:









The red one offered the same counterpoint for the other mini:







My sci-fi plan involves other minis for a full warband...



But that will be discussed in due time :D and in the right sci-fi thread :P. For the moment, the two versions:

This is all for now, I'll try not to procrastinate more!

Nice explosions of colour and the parasols are particular well done.

Excellent work and I like the different take on the trader you gone with.
