EDIT: link to the live kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/hellboy-the-board-game/description The Hellboy board game will be a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members, such as Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Roger the Homunculus, before exploring gothic locations and uncovering ancient artifacts. Set to make its Kickstarter debut in April 2018, the Hellboy board game will feature stunning, pre-assembled plastic miniatures that accurately capture the look and feel of Mike Mignola’s world famous comic series. “Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO. “The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast-paced co-operative board game that will let players experience some of their favorite moments from the series.”
Rigel posted a topic in Show OffPainted up the Bones WWWizard of Oz as Hellboy, as so many others have rightly done (for it is an excellent pulp Hellboy sculpt sans tail). Got some good practice with old leather in making that duster; multiple washes and drybrushes in different tones. His skin is Reaper's Cinnamon Red with AP Red Tone and Nuln Oil washes and some AP Chaotic Red touches. Horns and clobberin' hand are mostly Chaotic Red. Movie came out recently to poor reviews, so this is a good time to remind people of Hellboy's comic-book roots: standing in front of poorly-lit Cyclopean carvings from ancient times before encountering a horrendous monster. "The briefing said this temple complex was dedicated to Camazotz. ...what the heck is a camazotz?" "Ah! Christ, you're ugly!" "Okay, bat-face, you wanna dance? Let's dance." The part of the Camazotz is played today by RAFM's "Hell's Harbinger," in their Fantasy Miniatures: Angels of Death collection. A versatile monstrosity that comes with a giant monster-skull base, I've gotten plenty of Cthulhu and pulp mileage out of it. Bonus tableau! "I dunno what you're selling, lady, but I ain't buying any today!"
Am starting to paint up the pieces from the Kickstarter, which arrived yesterday, as otherwise it will sit there for years. At the moment all I have done on these (apart from Abe Sapiens skin) is a basic undercoat with coloured Vallejo primers and then a wash with Army Painter strong tone. Am then picking out white and light details. Am going to try and reference the distinctive black shading in the Mike Mignola comics by using black lining and painting areas in shadow as dark grey. Also will try and use lots of pastels, basic NMM, and those distinctive bright blank eyes.
