Chibi Pony Knight and Red Riding Hood

I’ve been buying chibis at Adepticon for the kids and I to paint. While I intend to paint them at the same time as the kids, I tend to get busy finding paints and giving them tips. So here are the last two years‘ worth.

Chibi Pony Knight

I used this knight as an excuse to try colorshift paint from Turbo Dork. It’s a little less subtle in life than in the photos. I haven’t quite decided whether I like that it’s subtle, or wish that it had a more obvious effect. In any case, an interesting product.

Chibi Red Riding Hodd

Red Riding Hood is a more typical model. I’m still surprised at how easy it is to make the eyes expressive.

For next year the kids have requested more realistic models. I may still get a chibi or two for myself.

Reaper: Post-Apoc Monsters

I bought these models from the Reaper Bones line to act as giant mutant monsters for post-apoc games. I’m never very happy with my results for animals, but somehow forget them that when buying them.

Dire Bear

The Dire Bear is pretty straightforward, and would be equally at home on a Relicblade board.

Were Armadillo

The Were Armadillo is probably favorite from the set. The integrated base was pretty badly warped, but I trimmed it down and then built up a little hill with green stuff.

Were Crocodile

The Were Crocodile is supposed to be painted like a black caiman, but I’m not sure it came through. At least it adds a bit more interest than just green through and through.

7TV Apoc: Ms Lovely Day

The other 7TV Apoc model I picked up from Crooked Dice, Ms Lovely Day might be somewhat familiar somehow. She makes a nice compliment to the Wasteland Overlord.

These models are a ton of fun. They are every so slightly cartoony, which gives them a ton of character. I hope to get more, and, of course, actually play the 7TV game sometime.
