In D&D the Rust Monster is a threat to the Dungeoneers’ precious equipment by it’s ability to rapidly disintegrate into rust powder any metal items it comes near. Other than that, it is quite harmless.
From the first Bones kickstarter, the “Oxidation Beast”, so named presumably because Rust Monster is trademarked.
For some reason this mini has languished unpainted in the Drawers of Doom™ since the first Bones kickstarter. I rediscovered it the other day and decided to paint it up, together with one of the 3Dprints I just had printed off.
Recently I backed the Dragonlock 3D printable miniatures kickstarter, that delivered a bunch of .stl-files shortly after. I have already printed off a few of them, with the Oxidation Beast (yup, same name as Reaper) among them.
The art style of the Dragonlock minis are quite cartoony, but this one actually does not look as cartoony as some of the others.
They are based on 40mm lipped round bases. I put the Dragonlock one on a seperate 3D printed base to make it more in line with the rest of my minis.
Really quick paint jobs, starting from black undercoats. First base coat in ancient round flip-top pot Citadel Terracotta. Next was a drybrush with Scalecolor Chink Orange (Whoa! That is it’s actual name! Scalecolor is made by a Spanish company, I assume they do not have native English speakers on staff that might react to certain troublesome words before releasing the product to the public. Yes, I am sure they were thinking about armour and not that other more troublesome meaning, but anyway! Some words are best avoided!)
Next up was Scalecolor Mars Orange and a bit of Citadel Yriel Yellow to finish it off. Some black on the eyes and base. I used my black flockmix as these are dungeon denizens.

If I ever find my old “dinosaur” yous at my parents’ place, I’ve definitely got to fish out my least-favourites – the ones that weren’t actually dinosaurs, but ended up being D&D monsters – and then repaint them. Nice work on these not-rust monsters. 🙂
