I’ve gone a bit crazy painting Super Dungeon Explore lately. This time of year is normally when my painter’s block/apathy kicks in, but this year I seem to be in overdrive!
First up is Kaelly the Nether Strider, whose hero version the Nether Assassin is quickly becoming one of my favourites. Her potion is a lifesaver!
Next is the Wandering Minstrel. I’m actually using him as a tank; he generates a ton of wrath with his potion and supportive actions and by loading him up with Dex equipment he can dodge out of harm’s way.
I’ve started painting minions from the Emerald Valley set. First up are the Kinoshrooms.
Finally I’ve finished the Claw Trainers
And Ser Sharpclaw from the Claw of the Wyrm warband.
The Arcanist Mechanik is a great Retribution solo. I wanted the maximum of allowance of three but they only come in one sculpt:
So I wanted to convert the other two. For the first, I was inspired by the following artwork by Chris Walton:
I removed the tool from his left hand, re-angled the arm, added a mug and filled in the arm with putty. I removed his right hand and replaced the tool, sculpting the hand. I also added a cigarette to his mouth. I actually drilled it into his face to make sure that it doesn’t break off, and sculpted his lips around it.
The other was a more significant conversion. It’s a gender-swap with a lot of putty work. I made a mould of Kaelyssa’s face and shoulder-pad and scratch-built the rest of the torso. I had to rebuild some of the right hand and bottle-things as I removed them when making the torso.
