I may have finished Orctober early this year, but that leaves plenty of time for other Halloween themed minis this year! All spookiness comes from the Bones 3 Kickstarter...actually, I think it's all from the same Crypt Expansion, except for one of the spirits.
The full haunting:
The Obsidian Crypt:
The Graveyard Golem:
The Spirits from Beyond:
The true evil of the group, the Pumpkin Minions:
I am trying to break out of my lurker mode and post more. I have many excuses for my silence the last few months, one of which is my lack of a good photo set up. So I decided to just take crummy phone photos with the scant natural light angling in the windows across the room. I actually like the results. Especially since you can't see a lot of my poor painting as well.
approaching the the hill from the pumpkin patch...
Some surprises pop out if the ground.
door is open but no one is home. . . Maybe check the other side of the fence
Penny ^ ...New model in blister. ^
This guy is big enough to take up the footprint of four infantry skeletons. The penny is 19mm diameter. The plan is to give the figure a 40mm square, equivalent to four 20x20 bases arranged in a square.
He will count as four members of the unit he'll be assigned to.
Here's a few picks of a Barrow Wight Guardian that I started last week and only just got around to getting pics of. What's really funny is that this figure has been primed, on a base and in storage for nearly ten years.
Future plans include:
1. Fresh damage to armor.
2. Free hand image on shield.
3. Weathering and rust on sword and armor.
4. Green glow from eyes, mouth, and neck of armor.
Feel free to share ideas for shield image, I have no ideas right now.
Hajad is another sacrife to the toy box level painting (ie. ignore moldlines and any advanced techniques) in my quest to find the "right" zombie skin tone. This time based with 50/50 MSP Vampiric skin and VMC Basic Skin Tone. Covered with a wash of Army Painters blacker colored Dark Tone Ink. This is getting closer to what I want and might be right on with a wash using a brown ink like Strong Tone. I am going to find another sacrificial mini to try a 50/50 mix of the vampiric skin with VMV Dark Fleshwith a brown wash. I think that will give me the grey undead color I want ith enough caucasian skin to look like a fresher conversion to the zombie lifestyle.
I like this model, so will need to look at getting him in metal at some time. For now this one will be used as a ghost pirate in a Hero Kids adventure with my four year old.
Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.
