Just keep on plugging away at these bones 5 set. So so so much to paint still.
Here we go. The necromancer.
I am going to say i hate bone white from vallejo. That stuff has terrible coverage. Chalky. And thinning it makes it take forever to dry. Not a fan. Every time i is it i think, "i should mark this bottle with an x."
I wanted the cape to be darker red, but it still works. I was nearly going to paint it purple and make her clothes red, but didn't. She looks way way way too colorful for a necromancer, but it's what it is now.
We've seen Mole People. We've seen Mouse People. Now, let's meet some Bat People! These are Yogs from Zombiesmith and I love them so much. My players, probably less so.
Look at those lumpy, top-heavy armored union suits! Those dainty feet and burly arms!
These models are "Yog Skusto," clearly the fellows in charge of fighting and labor. I added some GW Bitz--they did not come with the ring plate on the back or the little reliquaries.
But it adds visual interest and I like the juxtaposition of this diving-suit-era technology and elaborate religion. I figure at least one of my sci-fi factions should be strongly influenced by faith and zeal.
And especially so in the case of Yog Sagonto here! This one got a lot of bitz added, including about five books, but the seals and scrolls on their cape came with the model. Clearly the intellectual / ambassador / diplomat / prophet type. Needs a grandiose title like "High Proselyte and Exalted Scriptorian Sagonto of the Desmodans."
Clearly a creature that values the written word. I love the revealed culture in all the little details.
Of course they are vampire bats. Alien religions are fun, and B-movies show us that SPACE VAMPIRES are also fun, and the World of Darkness games show us that religious vampires are also fun! So a highly religious species of blood-drinking chiropterans surviving on a geothermally dying planet orbiting a lightless system whose sun collapsed into a black hole ('cause symbolism is fun too) should be pretty rad. Great opportunity for ethical dilemmas, philosophical questions, or just straight-up pew-pew laser fights.
This one has been on the desk for awhile to receive paint as there was extra on the palette. I decided to finish him off last night. Added highlights to the cloak and skulls. Shaded everything, but the cloak with Army Painter Dark Tone. I didn’t add any highlights or shading beyond the basics as it isn’t a great cast. But, I think it turned out great for the toy box.
