    Standard colour Sorceress will definitely get done as well.

    Meanwhile, I finished these:

    Evil Warriors - Shadow Beasts

    Shadow Beasts are great ape-like beasts who live in tribes throughout the dark hemisphere. They are named thus because they can only come out in the absence of light. Like most beasts, they are vulnerable to Beastman's powers and can be controlled by him to join the fight on Skeletor's side.



    Shadow Beasts, the yeti's of Eternia
    I went with the Filmation cartoon colour scheme on this. Other media have shown them in darker, more apelike colours, but I like how the purple shade emphasises the alien, retro pulp quality they have. I originally was going to do their bases in a neutral colour, as they can also be used independently, but ultimately settled for the Evil Warriors scheme, as that will be their main purpose.

    Thanks, I'm quite enjoying these. Here is the last one for a while, until I find another window to get some painting done.

    Anti-Eternians - Anti-Goddess
    If Anti-Eternia is the opposite of regular Eternia, then it stands to reason that its Goddess has also been tainted by the same evil. Being more brutal in nature, she fights with a mace, ready to bash in skulls, rather than to carry the snake staff.


    Anti-Eternia Goddess

    There isn't really any precedent for this character (that I'm aware of), so her colour scheme was made up, using the usual Anti-Eternia palette and trying to go by what makes sense and gives the best contrast. As the regular version already wears a (dark) red snake collar, I decided to do the collar in the grey colour and work out the rest from there. I think the end result is pretty good.



    The model is another old Grenadier mini from the 1980s. It's interesting that Grenadier made multiple poses of the same characters and it helps to further differentiate between the good and bad Goddess, although having duplicate models in different colour schemes doesn't bother me in this project, since it's a nod to the heavy reuse of parts and recoloured characters in the MOTU universe and toy line.


    Anti-Eternia and Eternia Goddess


    What sorcery is this? You are not the Goddess!

    Aroo - The guardian of the City of the Ancients

    Only appearing in the episode "Masks of Power", Aroo is a giant demonic blue gorilla-like beast, who was in charge of guarding the said masks in the lost City of the Ancients. He-Man and Man-At-Arms barely escaped with their lives when they encountered him and while the masks were taken, Aroo was just too strong to defeat, even for He-Man.


    The giant, apelike Aroo



    My version of Aroo is not full size, he'd need to be about 2,5 times the size, which would just make him look out of place on the table and impossible to work into a scenario where you could fight him and win. So, I settled for a more practical size, which still puts hem at around 115mm tall, on an 80mm base. As he's based on an Eaglemoss figure of Grudd, skillfully converted by the talented John Pickford, he's also made of lead, so weighs a heavy 700g. Painting him was not so easy due to the added weight.




    Aroo in the original episode


    For size with Skeletor, who's hoping to control him, but may have bitten off more than those weathered teeth can chew





    A comparison with the original figure. The Grudd figure is actually pretty close already if you don't care for an exact match. The only really required changes would be replacing the hair with a skullcap with horns and pointy ears poking out, adding a devilish tail and filling in the G to be a circle. As I wanted to get as close as possible, John also changed the mouth, necklace, armbands and wrist guards, belt, loincloth, and added claws to the fingers and feet, as well as turning the oversized skull into a rock.

    This is amazing. You are very skilled! And I am a little jealous that I don’t have any skill like that! Lol

    Eternia Scenery - Evil Spirits Well

    Today's update adds another piece of Scenery to the Eternian landscape in the form of a magical Well of Evil Spirits. It is said he who harnesses the power of the evil spirits within the well can conquer Eternia itself... if he's willing to pay the price. For you see, many of the souls trapped within once belonged to those who thought they could master its powers and failed...


    At last, my imbecile lackey, with the power that lies within this Well, Greyskull will fall into my hands.

    There is no Well of Evil Spirits in MOTU lore, at leas tnot that I know of, but I think the model fits right in. It is a single part of a plastic Games Workshop terrain kit that I picked up from a bits seller on ebay a few years ago, thinking it would work great as a standalone piece. When I started this MOTU project, I figured it would look great for Eternia. I tried to paint it in a way that would be reminiscent of the colours you would encounter in Eternian rocks and ruins in the Filmation cartoon. I think it works rather well.


    A bird's eye view of the well and the spirits trapped within.









    An action scene, with evil overlords battling for controle of the Well:


    You are too late, Hordak, the power of the Well is mine!

    Really wish we could get some of your designs done as MOTUC items. I would pay you good money if you could do this in 7 inch scale.
    Griffen Is not My real name, just what I aspire to be.

    Well, I think it should be doable to build something similar in MOTUC scale with some halloween skulls and hardfoam as the base, but time is in short supply, unfortuantely.
