Greetings fellow MYTH fans!  Never have been one to post much in any forum, but MYTH is too awesome and I wanted to share my efforts with you all!

First up, some grubbers...

(http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/117/3/7/untitled_by_passthegrits-d7ga9tf.jpg)

Every time I look at the one in the middle I see an orc wearing santa pants.

Santa Grubber is coming to town!
He bleeds you when you're creeping,
He knows when you're in pain.
He knows if you've got brown or blue
So bring blue for goodness sake!

Nice, really like the red one too.

But I can't unsee santa-pants now.

Big fan of the leather helmet and the steel toed boots SidewaysMonkey.  I' think I'm going to have to go back and pick out the boots on mine.
: Re: Painting my way through the MYTH box...
: sidewaysmonkey May 09, 2014, 08:45:53 AM
Hey, thanks!  I figure that working construction is his day job and he just works for the Darkness on the side (and under the table).  I suppose he went straight to the dungeon from the worksite and forgot to change boots.

: troschan May 12, 2014, 01:11:08 AM
They look really nice, but indeed it looks like you put lots of efforts in those, how long is the average you need per mini?

I was rather hoping to do the Mini-Bosses with more care, as well as the Heroes, but do a bit of a speed-paint  with the
simple monsters, like base-colors and army painter, simply considering the amount of minis...
: Re: Painting my way through the MYTH box...
: sidewaysmonkey May 13, 2014, 11:40:04 PM
Hey, thanks!  It's hard to say since I haven't been timing...  The first one of each color scheme takes a bit longer since I'm making color decisions along the way.  I'm going to estimate that each minion is taking about 2.5 Three Stooges episodes, or about 45 minutes.

Can't help but think the bases need some work. I just can't get over seeing the tab of the model.
Yardo looks great so far.

I love what you did with the stalker. I'm not a fan of the blue on the origional art and much prefer your take.
: Re: Painting my way through the MYTH box... Now with %100 more Yardu!
: sidewaysmonkey May 24, 2014, 08:15:10 AM
I don't disagree with you, but I really don't like basing...  I plan on doing a lot of MYTHing on the Dwarven Forge pieces that are also in most of the pictures, so I plan on giving each base a simple paint job to match.  Then in the future I can go back and redo the bases if I ever want to...  I have not finished one of the bases yet, but will try to get a picture up when I do.

I'm glad you like the stalker.  I've decided to do a few different tribes/hives for each monster type, each with a slight variation of in-game mechanics/abilities.  I'm doing a blue stalker as well, but still quite different from the original MYTH art.  This one here is still WIP.

I decided that I wasn't really happy with the shades of blue that I had previously used and so I have started to repaint the claws and tail on this guy...

(http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/145/1/9/untitled_by_sidewaysmonkey-d7jremt.jpg)

I've also started on 1000 Legs and I hope to have some pictures up soon...

How'd you do the fade from white to red on the pinchers?

Looks awesome but I've not been able to do a hard fade like that.
: Re: Painting my way through the MYTH box... Now with %100 more Yardu!
: sidewaysmonkey May 29, 2014, 09:35:05 PM
Thanks!  In the case of the claws I painted the entire claw in Spattered Crimson (Reaper 09277), and then worked from the claw tip back when putting on the Karak Stone (Citadel).  I used a "sort of drybrush" style at the edge of the transition to red.  Since this picture I have done a wash of 50/50 Nuln Oil (Citadel) and Reikland Fleshshade (Citadel) which blurs the transition even more.  I am in the process of highlighting the red shell back towards the "elbow", and the business end of the claw towards the tip.  I'll try to get some new pictures up soon.

Pretty sweet, Sidewaysmonkey!  You've inspired my TW1K.  I wasn't sure how I wanted to do mine, but seeing the contrast in how you did yours is pretty neat.  I will leverage the techniques in my rendition.  Keep 'em coming   8)

I'd be interested assuming this is just something you can post and not have to go and create.  Just curious more than anything.
: Re: Painting my way through the MYTH box... Now with %100 more Yardu!
: sidewaysmonkey June 05, 2014, 11:54:51 PM
I keep a log book of all the colors, washes, and order that I do a piece in, so it's really no trouble at all.  Just a matter of typing it up, which I had planned on doing at some point anyway. 

I worked 68 hours in the last week so, as you can imagine, I've done almost no painting.  I'm now on vacation starting today.  Ahhhh....

I want to finish up that Terror and then try my hand at a redskin or blueskin mucker.  Haven't decided yet.

: Re: Painting my way through the MYTH box... Now with %100 more Yardu!
: sidewaysmonkey June 08, 2014, 07:37:21 AM
There's a simple reason for that, the Acolyte is the only hero that I have painted so far!  I have put a few base colors on the Soldier...  Maybe I'll do him next before I do another mucker.  I also realized that I never posted any good pictures of just the Acolyte...

Well, here is my first WIP of the soldier.  Just basic base coats so far.  Also I'll try to do some pictures of just the Acolyte soon.  Thanks for looking!!

Mostly done at this point.  I still have some highlighting and some additional work on the Larvae.  Clearly I need a base too.   ::)

Looking forward to seeing this on a realm tile soon.

Very cool!  I really like that!  I had considered using green at one point but then decided on red for my first try.  I Double Captained so I may have to reconsider green for the other Terror.  I especially like the contrast of the cream color on the underbelly.  Nice color fade on the claws too.  Bravo!
