The grey skin with the washed out tones of their clothing, really beautiful!

 

Thank you!  I liked their potential for sinister sweetness.

The Gothic Ladies are LOVELY in their own charming, horrifying way. Your technique lends itself perfectly to the subjects. VERY WELL DONE!

The sculpting looks a little crude, but your paint job is wonderful.  I love the effects on their drapery, especially the pink one.

They look creepy (in a nicely painted way ::D:).

 

Thanks! It’s fun to have good-looking baddies for the table.

Their hands are kind of large. I think that lets them be expressive. 

 

I hadn’t originally planned to paint them first (out of the “My Last Sunrise” Kickstarter), but I found their campy Hammer horror female vampire in a nightie vibe oddly appealing.

      The GM said we needed a nosferatu, so here we are.
       
      This is Reaper's 02867: Matthias the Twisted, a gnarly rattish vampire.

      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
       
      (I have to remember that I experimented with a cold blue-grey wash on some vampire figures that avoided all the nice warm undertones.)
       

       

       
      I paint vampires with stark white skin, shaded with flat greys mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black. This is almost the only time I ever use such a simple mix for greys.
       
      The first layer is a thinned white (blodginess is the underpainting showing through).

      (Note: I actually started these a while back, though they are not done yet. This is a bit less of a WIP thread than a how-I-got-here-so-far thread, which I will update as I get my old pictures organized. Questions and comments and critiques are, as always, welcome.)
       
      Last summer Bad Squiddo Games hosted a brief Kickstarter, "My Last Sunrise," of an assortment of Gothic horror minis centered around vampires. These two stood out to me as a little beyond the Hammer horror ethos of most of the other figures. While I was painting them I thought of them as "Feral Vampires," although when I just rechecked they are called "Vampire Thralls."
       
      I dunno. They don't look very thrall-like to me.
       
      Their tag line in the Kickstarter was "Float about in my night dress cooing for scraps? No way. I hunt my own meal."
       
      Anyhow, they have a fun, odd, lady pirate or highwayman look.

      This is a slight deviation from how I prime figures. Normally I prime them with Titanium White (which I did here) and then wash over them with Burnt Umber to bring out the details. These I wanted kind of cold-looking, so I washed them with a cold dark grey mixed from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue.
       
      That's them on the left. For a while I was including Bad Squiddo's "Dracula" in the photos, so you get a free peek at that too.

       

       
      And as per usual, the first thing I did was their skin. In contrast to the skin of living humans, I have been painting vampire skin in stark black-and-white mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black. The very first layer is thinned Titanium White, then pale shadows of the lightest grey.
