Giant Stag Beetles
Posted by MortiS-the-Lost –
No these aren’t from OtherWorld as everyone seems to keep asking. These are in fact from Ral Partha Europe's awesome Das Schwarze Auge Creatures range (BTW everyone who asked me; OtherWorld don't even make Giant Stag Beetles)
I did a small amount of green-stuff work to expand the Beetles integral bases to meet the edge of the round plastic bases I mounted them on and also re-positioned the head on one of the rearing-up Beetles for variety. But apart from that these Beetles are completely stock.
The Beetles were painted in several layers of smooth careful dry-brushing building up from Formula P3 Sanguine Base through Skorne Red to a mixture of Skorne Red and Citadel Blood Red with a final highlight of Blood Red. The eyes are Citadel Emerald Green with Scorpion Green highlights.
^ For Reference on the colour scheme I used this rather nice (but very difficult to photograph) real Stag Beetle preserved in clear resin that was given to me by one of my brothers
