  1. Lord of the Dish Pit

    Countdown to Halloween

    A few weeks ago I began to perceive subtle changes heralding the return of my favorite time of year. Fortunately it also brought with a return of my motivation to paint. Over the course of time I've managed to amass many 20s of horror and undead minis so what better way to get into the season than start actually painting some of them. I picked this up at Goodwill some months ago with the idea of having it be a home for the witches. The original painter did a pretty good job on it, but I'm going for something a bit more Charles Addams . So it got a coat of Pavement Grey craft paint. Here we have batch 1. The wraith, wolf, lich, vampire, and tomb are all from the Bones 3 Graveyard set and the two beastmen I picked up from the discount bin at Reaper HQ last year. The wraith was previously coated in black and at some point I added a brown wash for unremembered reasons. Here's everyone after Dirty Bone and Stormy Grey have been applied. The chimneys of the house had it drybrushed on as did the tomb. While base coating the others I noticed that for unknown reasons the Stormy Grey is acting odd, thinner than it ought to be out of the bottle. I'm not too concerned about it as I've had this bottle for a long time and I think it went thru one temperature change too many, as well as perhaps age catching up with it. The wraith didn't receive any because of this and because even someone like myself who abuses the grey spectrum with overuse on a regular basis gets burned out some. So I'm holding off on him for a little while. Now it might be asked what the beastmen are doing in a Halloween themed thread, but witches and goat headed creatures go together quite often in both art and legend. So they'll be acting as bodyguards for the witches of a more infernal type.
  2. One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead, followed by Chaos and Reptilians. I already have my Lost World Project which tells a tale of Conquistadores, Reptilians, Dinosaurs, Undead and a lot more. However those Undead are the Egyptian Style and Pirate/Jungle style. This thread will be filled with my beloved Gothic Undead, Demons, Monsters and all things that go bump in the night. In my Lost World Project I tell an ongoing story, here I will post about all other dark things without coherency. There might be snippets of loose stories to accompany a mini or not... I hope you guys and gals and creatures will like it. Let's kick off with the critters I painted a while ago to get a feel of what is coming. Enjoy! ( or not) Bats and a Murder of Crows EDIT: I will include some Bones and minis. The bulk will be metal and I want to give this an oldschool vibe. Preferred minis will be, Reaper, Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm, Metal Magic, Otherworld and Early Citadel. The Asian Undead will be from Zenith since I backed the Kensei Undead Samurai KS and will get their own thread. Eldessa Necromancer Ral Partha Female Vampire Lurien and Aysa Bat Demon

    Ghouls + A true horror story

    Reaper Miniatures 03716 Ghouls sculpted by Bob Ridolfi and old school RAFM 02953 Ghoul Warlock. I painted these in August for a D&D encounter but I had to repaint them because the varnish has created a white fume all over the models when I sealed them. It probably happened to many of you as well. It was the third time I wasted painted models because of that undesirable fume without being able to put my finger on the reason why. I think I now know why it happen. Trick or treat : A true horror story It was very humid outside that last August. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to shelter myself in the basement while I was speed painting some exquisite Reaper Miniature models. Late that day, as I was done painting a hand full of Undead models, I decided to seal them with that half-full / half-empty "you choose" can of anti shine matt varnish. It's important to mention that I had already used that very same spray can a month earlier. This being said, after shaking the spray can for a good minute or so, I opened the basement door leading into the backyard. Immediatly, a draft of hot and humid air invaded the doorway and shook my face. I remember swearing when I felt the moisture condensing to beads of sweat on my skin. Without losing a second, wanting to get back to shelter in my man cave, I spray some figurines. In the darkness of the night, everything seemend to be allright under the dim light of the portico. The day after, I noticed the damage. By a terrible curse, the models I spayed the night before were covered with a thin, powdery layer of white dust. I gazed around looking for sneering Gremlins but saw nothing unusual. Disconcerted, I became aware of the extent of the damage. There has to be a logical explanation behind this ghouly phenomenon. As much as I like science fiction and horror stories, I had to find a scientific explanation to all this madness. Wasting other models by this evil spell was not an option. I reused the same spay can to make a test. The only parameter that seemed to be different was the fact that it was very humid and hot outside the night before. I did not want to ruin hours of time spent painting another model to do this test. So, I sprayed a colored cardboard. Furthermore, I made an exception to the sanitary rule and used the spray can inside. The result was surprising. Even though I was using the same spay can, there was no fume this time. Since then, I've been reusing that same spry can on other models whitout any problem. What happened that draid August night? Was it the imps playing tricks on me or just the excessive difference of temperature and the heavy humidity in the air catched by the aerosol varnish? I will probably never know but one thing is for sure, I will always test my spray can on an expendable object before spraying my art.

    Great Cthulhu

    Finished Cthulhu on Saturday, I think I'm learning to overcome my fear of highlighting too far, I still didn't go as light as people said I should. Some say you can go practically to white, but I am very hesitant to try that. I think I've made progress though. C&C welcome! Soft Lighting--- Harsh Lighting, to show detail---- And WIP thread if anyone is interested...
  5. Kill-kill-kill-ma-ma-ma... I’ve never painted a hockey mask, nevermind in Nintendo turquoise lol. More of the comic book style I’ve been playing with and enjoying.

    Great Cthulhu

    Got my start on Cthulhu last week. Did a prime in black, then zenithal pre-shade white from above. Purple from below, then green from above. Liking the effect so far, think I'm done with the airbrush, gonna move on to regular painting.
  7. There's an old engineering saying: "Fast, cheap, or good, pick any two. " In this case I needed a bunch of 1920's investigators in normal street clothes, I wanted them ready in two weeks and I didn't want to pay $5-$7 each for them. So I got on Ebay and bought plastic clicky game figures for a dollar a head (shipping included) and did a little putty and paint work on them. Finished everything Saturday morning, and then the game got pushed back to next week. Which only means that I have time to paint more monsters. Here are the ladies: The one in the blue dress is from Reaper. They all could use more detail, but I was in a hurry. Gentlemen: The one on the end is from Heresy, I think. They could all use hats but I'm not that good. I made most of the bases out of putty, using texture stamps. Before photos and WIP:

    Nyarlathoptep

    Some in progress works of nyar as I work on him. Started with black primer, airbrushed white pre shading, drybrushed transparent dioxane purple, accenting the shadows, then coated in transparent pthalo blue.
  9. Alright go these guys to a serviceable spot for a test game tomorrow. Forgot that there was a third one, I know I had it when priming and pre-shading, probably the hounds of tindalos again. DAMN THOSE CORNERS. Btw does anyone have any suggestions, beyond "just don't touch them," for playing games with half painted minis? I don't want to varnish them and was hoping there was a better way. @Talae I know you play while wip, do you do anything special?

    Hunting Horror

    LAST ONE FOR THE NIGHT I PROMISE. Sorry I had a bunch of stuff I hadn't taken any pics of in ages so I figured I'd dump them all on here. Thanks for any c&c is offered, you guys are great!
  11. Started on these this week, thought I'd throw them up before I went to bed. C&C always appreciated, especially on the antelope, I'm having a hard time think what I could do to improve it, but I think it was too easy to get it looking that good. Underside of the antelope is still a wip, BIGTIME, I've barely started on it. I mean the gorey sinewy muscle for the tips to make better. KDM story spoilers ahead...
  12. Survivor Zachary, assembled, green stuff'd, primed in white, base flesh tone and hair, and skin wash. Working on the eyes now, he's not supposed to look like batman.

    Screaming Antelope

    Started assembling this guy, the horn got glued on wrong so I had to separate it and reposition. Still going to greenstuff the gaps but got these pics to check the positioning of the horn.

    Bad Squiddo Games' Dracula

    This is Dracula from Bad Squiddo Games' "My Last Sunrise" collection, an assortment of vampires, vampire hunters, and a few auxiliaries which was released in a very brief Kickstarter last summer. Annie, the Dice Bag Lady, runs fun Kickstarters. The three vampire brides I painted last month are from the same set. I don't have a WIP for him. Questions and comments appreciated.

    Dark Young

    Final part of the Black Goat faction down. Tell me what you guys think!
  16. Just finished the Mi-Go from the black goat faction and thought I would put up pictures of them and the cultists and ghouls I finished before. C&C always appreciated!

    Shub Niggurath

    Alright so finished Shub Niggurath of the Black Goat faction for Cthulhu Wars. I think she turned out well, and this is probably the most success I've had with highlighting so far. Pretty happy with her. WIP here:
  18. So got my first airbrush yesterday and was messing about figuring out how to use it. Today I had my first attempt at basecoating and basic shading with it. Dont think I have the dilution quite right, but I'm not sure which way to go. C&C appreciated! 5

    Yellow Sign Undead

    Finished the last of the Yellow Sign faction, got a group pic that I'm gonna upload later but these are the final wave! WIP thread:
  20. This broccolien guy, I swear. I go to paint the bandages on him and I'm like wait that's not a bandage, that's a tentacle. So I painted the bandages I could make out and the skin the same color, planning on doing something with the skin later, maybe a touch of grey. I have no idea where I'm gonna start with the tentacular mass. What the even broccoli.

    Yellow Sign, Byakhee

    So I could probably have touched up the upper carapace of these guys a bit, added some more highlights, I don't think there's quite enough contrast on most of them, but I need to get these guys done and I still have the undead to do. So I varnished them and I think they turned out pretty well. C&C always appreciated!
  22. Started Cthulhu Wars for a friend today and I think I need some help with the Yellow Sign cultists. I'm starting with the robes and I feel like something went wrong somewhere along the line, not sure exactly how to fix it. Base coated black, then drybrushed ochre through yellow, then went back through glazing ochre through yellow. Maybe a dark brown wash will help. Could use some help.
  23. So I've got this big boy looking pretty good, Just airbrush, gloss, dark purple wash, and touched up the eyes. Planning on doing the iris' and some light reflection off the black bobbles, also doing the mouth and ear-mouths (?) a dark red. I'm scared to do anything else but Since it's the Yellow Faction, I'd like to have some yellow highlights. I feel that Dry-brushing would be too violent, and I'm not sure how to start with layering such a different color. Any Suggestions much appreciated!
  24. Hi all! Thought I'd share this sweet little Kickstarter (sorry if it already has been shared). Only runs for a few days and is meant to start shipping at the end of the month (they already have the master molds). Thought the price is very reasonable and the minis really interesting. I got the good guys only pack ^^ https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1512506318/my-last-sunrise-gothic-horror-28mm-miniatures/posts/1964783
  25. My friend Larissa had to move back to her parents in a small town while this gets worked on, because of her laptop getting fried by bad rental situations in the big city. If you want more than what's currently on the website, you can probably still find her comic the Scares (#1 only) and webcomic Pet Sock (on Bloody Disgusting), but there's lots of video. Anyway, I've enjoyed the episodes and promos online, and now they're crowd-funding for a more serious stab at this project. I'm excited about the inclusion of Steve Kostanski (Astron 6, The Void, Portal to Hell) for effects. I've supported a previous film project by the producer (Impossible Horror) which had really bad communication (no updates for a year, and I still haven't seen anything), but the creators have more of a social media presence and this is a serial, which should have shorter turn-around. This is a web series about people writing a horror movie. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/allie-lara-make-a-horror-movie#/
