  1. 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. ( Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon) and the Egyptian ones are in Shifting Sands Project) EDIT - Asked to merge my Undead Threads into one. Now Lords and Ladies of Death. This is for all the Ghotic Undead and their friends like Werewolves/Witches/Demons etc etc.. Eldessa Necromancer Ral Partha Female Vampire Lurien and Aysa Bat Demon
  2. One of the oldest Bones models in existence: Reaper Bones 77009 "Werewolf", from the 2011 O.G. pre-kickstarter Bones lineup. This mini is also available in metal under the name 02747 "Jean Paul DuChamps, Werewolf". I just got the hankering to paint this one. Nothing special. Oui! Le loup-garou! En garde! 77009 Werewolf Pre-kickstarter Bones Reaper Miniatures Classic, blinding white Bones PVC Sculpted by Ben Siens 40mm base. Available from reapermini.com
  3. A pair of werewolves - I enjoyed painting these, particularly the brown one!
  4. Digging around in the mini zoo and unearthed this pack. Painted them a while back. I thought I did a pretty awesome paint job back in the day, but now I kind of want to repaint them. Must... Resist...Urge... To...Repaint... (Too many unpainted minis in the queue to go back and redo painted ones!)
  5. This was my first time painting two of the same sculpt twice in a row, so I tried to make them pretty distinguishable for table play. I also hadn't realized how much bigger 77464 is then 77009, but I still think they work together and I'm pretty happy with the pack overall.
  6. There are some really nice werewolf models out there, but normally they are huge, sitting on 50mm plus bases (I have a bunch of privateer press ones.), Thank you James Van Schaik for such a nice and realistic sized model.
  7. This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf. First the sculpt: Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with. Second the paint: It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo. Third the question: I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base. It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy. I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base. Opinions? Pros & cons?
  8. Here is the finished figure I painted up for my Secret Sophie.
  9. Pinnacle Entertainment Group ran a KS for The Goon Comic RPG. Included in the KS were eight metal miniatures. Despite the unique setting of "zombie noir", some of the miniatures can be used in other genres. I'll be painting the miniatures, starting with Merle the Werewolf. Obviously, he can be used as a generic werewolf, although his eyes are white, not the usual red I use. Bases were made from the OOP Happy Seppuku narrow wooden plank texture stamp, and miniatures pinned with the Army Painter hand drill. With extra paint, I painted some very old Grenadier werewolves, and an Against the Dark demon (looks more like a minotaur to me). Last pic doesn't include the ochre Skeleton Bone, which I used to lighten the browns to add contrast. Merle looks a little sad in that last pic, although that's appropriate for his character in The Goon...
  10. From a good Reaper Bones to a a brazilian werewolf (call Lobisomem) from the amazonian mythology for my Of God and Mortals Army (see this topic on the LAF here) a very simple one, as the werewolf has no tail. Only a swap 's head and the job is done . Just a good head choice with a WH40k wolf
  11. "Even the man who says his prayers / Before going to bed at night / May turn to WOLF when the wolfsbane blooms / and the moon is high and bright." --Apocryphal rhyme DOCTOR. A very pestilent disease, my lord, They call lycanthropia... In those that are possess'd with 't there o'erflows Such melancholy humour they imagine Themselves to be transformed into wolves; Steal forth to church-yards in the dead of night, And dig dead bodies up: as two nights since One met the duke 'bout midnight in a lane Behind Saint Mark's church, with the leg of a man Upon his shoulder; and he howl'd fearfully; Said he was a wolf, only the difference Was, a wolf's skin was hairy on the outside, His on the inside... --The Duchess of Malfi Body horror, puberty, loss of control, loved ones acting out of character, cannibalism, madness, things more savage and bloodthirsty than we thought man or beast could be--it's a rich vein of horror. The further back you go, the more blurred the distinction between vampire and werewolf and witch becomes, but as a general rule what we now consider to be vampires are specifically betrayers of hospitality and home; like de Rais and Bathory, they commit their crimes behind closed doors. Werewolves, on the other hand, are given to savagery outdoors, in the lanes, under the moonlight, in the moors and lonesome places. It is appropriate then, that Julie Guthrie's werewolf 02139, is named DuChamps--of the fields. Here he is, in form much more wolf than man. These two pictures are behind the Spoilers tab because, while Julie did not necessarily have to sculpt Jean-Paul's werescrote and transmogrified lycanthrodong, she did that. She did that for us, because she's a PROFESSIONAL and doesn't take shortcuts. I don't think it rises to indecency, but better safe. Will delete and link if the need arises. Next up. the truly monstrous Werewolf, 77009. Those familiar with the role-playing game "Werewolf!" from White Wolf will recognize this as a Crinos form. Enormous, savage, horrific. This is about a 50/50 mix of Man and Wolf, but with the features dialed up to 11. I had fun painting hair on the smoother human limbs. And lastly, a Nolzur's werewolf I had on the Shelf of Shame. This one is mostly human but with a wolf's head and claws. A note on the full moon: it's just a Nolzur's disc base painted white and poked with paintbrush ends of varying sizes during the drying phase to simulate craters. I may have to do some more of this with discs of different sizes and colors for Spacefuture shots, because multiple moons convey Other Worlds the way zeppelins convey Alternate Histories.
  12. I was told we needed all these lycanthropes for our home brew D&D game... Weve been using the mouslings as wererats. This project has spanned about five or six months. There are a couple more but because they’re ladies whose clothes fell off in transformation- they aren’t pictured. So here they are:
  13. This is the classic Ral Partha D&D set ,11-524 Lycanthropes, sculpted by Bob Olley. These guys have so much character.
  14. I decided to paint him up as a member of the Devil's Advocates biker gang from the 1971 documentary Werewolves On Wheels. Interestingly his hat is very much like the one worn by a gas station owner in the film, save that in the movie the feather was a great deal smaller. The light doesn't reach it well, but his necklace is done in green and purple to depict mardi gra beads. I attempted to freehand the patch design from the film, and other than having no where near enough room to get "Devil's Advocates" on the top, I'm pretty happy with it as from a distance it works. I also knew going in that the placement of his ponytail would make things slightly off kilter. I'm also happy with how the denim came out.
  15. Just a quick and simple paint, nothing fancy. Couldn’t resist picking it up though, because every tabletop needs a werewolf (even if that tabletop has nobody to play with): He’s very shiny. I couldn’t find my brush-on sealer and had to use PVA sealer, which is always glossier than the label says. His fur is supposed to be mottled grey/white and brown/black, but I never know how to paint the not-obviously furry parts, and usually default to bare skin. In this case, Dark Elf Skin. So I guess he’s a drow werewolf. Also, this: Look at at that eye! It’s a halfway decent eye (even if it isn’t quite human)! Calling the whole thing a win on that basis. C&C welcome.
  16. Vicious-looking couple, aren't they?
  17. Last year PingosHusband, after noodling around Exalted (2nd edition) and World of Darkness rulebooks (Vampire the Masquerade 2nd edition, Werewolf the Apocalypse, Mage the Ascension, etc.), announced that he'd like to run an Exalted game set in the World of Darkness. We, his friends and loved ones, said “What, are you crazy? Have we not long joked about how unplayable and internally inconsistent the World of Darkness is; how its timeline makes no sense and its rules and worldbuilding are buried and often mutually contradictory; how foolish and suicidally incurious the various groups are regarding each other; and how so many of its many tragic angsty world-destroying problems could be solved if only each isolated group got its head out of its backside and actually talked to one of the others?” He said, “Hear me out,” and since we have long experience of his keen ability to run entertaining campaigns, we heard him out. See, PingosHusband has a knack rather like Alan Moore's ability to take unpromising old third rate comic book series and turn them into fascinating multifaceted mythic dynamos, or Neil Gaiman's ability to mine world mythology to create astounding and consistent and multilayered worlds, or James Burke or Kenneth Hite’s ability to take fascinating historical and technological developments and spin them into stories of human interconnectivity or disturbingly deep illuminati conspiracies for game use, respectively. More than once PingosHusband has taken historical oddments, played “What happens if this is taken seriously and assumed to make sense somehow?” and produced some wonderful story or game setting or world. (One of them won awards.) So apparently he did this with Exalted and World of Darkness, getting under the hood, finding the core of what worked and what didn’t, seeing what could be connected to what else and what made sense, what was clearly absurd, what needed tweaking, what could be fun, what couldn’t be possible, why things happened, and who could have done them. He looked keenly at characters, places and situations, saw potential for fun in a campaign, wrote up background, and presented us with an introductory players’ handout. I’ll get to particulars later. The simple version is that the world looks basically like the World of Darkness, except that all of a sudden a tiny number of people have Exalted with memories of the world of Exalted (“Creation”) and powers derived from it. There are five to begin with (the PCs), although more will come soon enough. I have to say, this game has so far been tremendous fun. Our group has been playing together for over thirty years and I have rarely seen all of us this excited about a game. Our teenage / adult children are also involved and we have been having vivid family conversations over meals about history, strategy, and characters. I’ve (of course) been painting up miniatures for the game. I’m having a lot of fun with these too. I’ll put links to Show Off threads when I have them up.
  18. I'm working on painting a tribe of wolf people and this is the second guy I've completed (first one here). This is also the first custom base that I've made. Funny side note: Early on in painting this guy I posted on the works in progress board asking for opinions on what is hanging on his foot. The conclusion that we came to was that it was some kind of buckle which apparently the sculptor of this piece (Werner Klocke) is obsessed with. As I kept painting I definitely started noticing the abundance of buckles across the various leather straps. It just made me laugh every time I discovered a new one. Anyway comments, suggestions, and criticisms welcome! Thanks!
  19. Edit: updated the pictures to have a neutral background (suggested by Glitterwolf) and better lighting. Hey Guys! I'm pretty new to painting miniatures but I'm having a lot of fun with it. This is the first one that I feel really good about but I'd also love some feedback. Thanks!
  20. This is Julie Guthrie's 14528: Rageclaw Slayer, a very large werewolf (the base is 40 mm). Oh, and apparently this is the first Warlord figure I've painted. WIP thread here.
  21. I had two copies of James van Schaik's 02863: Female Werewolf, so I decided to paint them with slight variations. I've painted them with realistic wolf coloring. That is, they are colored like actual wolves that have been pulled and distorted into humanoid shapes rather than the solid black or gray common in werewolf depictions. WIP thread here.
  22. This is another of Julie Guthrie's beautiful giant werewolves, part of the Warlord Koborlas faction. This is my second Warlord figure painted. It was an attempt to make a gender-ambiguous werewolf, and as such I shaved down the chest armor a bit. Full WIP here. Aislinn may be howling or sniffing the air or fighting a giant. Looking up at any rate. WIP thread here.
  23. Among the classes I took at Reapercon this year was Shaded Basecoats, by James Wappel. For those of you unfamiliar with his painting style, it basically breaks all the "rules" of painting miniatures in all sorts of awesome ways. He uses huge brushes, doesn't rinse them out, blends most of his colors together, slops paint on all super messy in the early stages, it's quite the mind-blowing experience! I had SO MUCH FUN in his class that I decided to give a try at home, using a Bones werewolf that MrBoot needed painted before Friday's game. Here's the brush I used for 90% of the work: Yes, that does actually say Size 8. The other 10% was done using one of my trusty Size 0's for claws, eyes and teeth. And here's the final result! (I had to tweak the color balance of the final pictures to get the reddish skin/fur to show properly) I only spent just a little over an hour on this guy, and yet I'm just as happy with how he turned out as I would have been had I spent 4. Perhaps even happier! And even better, I was so relaxed and just having a lot of fun painting with this huge brush and not even caring about being careful. After looking at the pictures, I can tell his fur could really use one last highlight, but eh, I've got 20 other minis that need painting, so I'm not going to worry about it. List of paints used: Violet Liner (special thanks to @Guindyloo for the suggestion) Redstone shadow (fur, skin) Earth brown (fur) Rich leather (fur) Golden shadow (fur) Chestnut brown (skin) Oiled leather (skin) Aged bone (claws, teeth) Splintered bone (claws, teeth, eyes) Violet red (tongue) Big top red (tongue, eyes) Clear red (eyes) Solid black (eyes) Blackened brown (base) Jungle moss (base, claws) Highland moss (base) Stone grey (base) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  24. While I have been painting realistic wolves, I have also been working on some of the gorgeous giant wolfmen sculpted by Julie Guthrie for the Koborlas faction in Reaper's "Warlord" game. This is #14528, the subtly-named "Rageclaw Slayer", or the testosterone-poisoned werewolf a friend of mine requested. He's a big puppy; I include a copy of Reaper's 60164, Vampire Hunter, for scale: This is my standard priming of a thin layer of Titanium White followed by a thin wash of diluted Burnt Umber, using my favorite Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. I left the base white in order to paint it as snow. Those who have been following my regular wolf painting thread will recognize the steps here. First I mixed a cool neutral grey from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White and painted it on his limbs, face, and belly: Then I mixed a darker version of the same grey and painted his back and tail: Then I mixed a cream-buff color from Burnt Sienna, Yellow Oxide, a tiny bit of Ultramarine Blue to take the orange edge off, and Titanium White, and went over his face, limbs, and belly again: And finally I took some pure Carbon Black (a color I rarely use except for special effects) and laid in his eyes, nose, lips, and claws (Although I just noticed I missed his toe claws. Oh, well, next time.). I also washed a little diluted black over his darker fur, most noticeable on the parts of the tail I had missed earlier: He still looks rough and terrible, especially up close, but I have to admit I am rather pleased with the overall color impression.
  25. This is a fresh start for a thread I feel I knocked off kilter. I feel it may be justified in that I've finally started actually painting the creature. This is Reaper's 14532: Aislinn, Shadow Tracker, a large werewolf (the base is a 40mm square) from the Koborlas faction in their Warlord game. I had a request from a player for a werewolf who can shift genders and appear gender ambiguous, and this seemed a good place to start. The sculpt is meant to be female, but it is lean and muscly and not over-bosomy. I filed it down somewhat and off we go. ... I don't seem to have done my usual practice of documenting the priming (a light coat of thinned Titanium White and a wash of Burnt Umber on the creature only, leaving the base white for snow), so here is the first layer. I decided to paint this one as a white wolf. I've observed that "white" wolves are actually a creamy light brown, so that's how I've painted this one. The color is mixed from Yellow (Iron) Oxide, Burnt Umber, a bit of Ultramarine Blue to tone down the brightness, and Titanium White. It came out a sort of dull buff, a good blonde color. The color is laid on thin and translucent. Where the Burnt Umber underneath shows the color shifts to a sort of bluish shadow. I indicated the nose, eyes, lips, and claws with Carbon Black. I don't use pure black much, but I needed a little facial indication to work from. Had a little blue on my palette, so I swished in some snow shadows. These are two mixes: Phthalo Blue with a tiny bit of Hansa Yellow Opaque and a great deal of Titanium White; and Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White.
