Coincidentally I just finished these guys up myself! I did 3 of them and I also gave them glowing eyes (red, blue, & green). Great minds think alike! I glued sand to the bases of the ones I did. Your looks great and I love the eyes! (wink!)

Thanks for all the kind words!


I like them alot!  Are you in the Saturday evening 7 CST Google Hangouts?




No, I didn't get in the hang out until late Saturday night, and then I was only on for 20 minutes before it flaked out and wouldn't let m re-join. Most of the work on these was done Thursday and Friday.


Great, what color did you use for basecoating?

On boy! I have somewhere around 10 different paint manufacturers in my collection, and some of them are quite old.


I mixed some gesso with Americana (craft paint) yellow, mostly just to ensure I got full coverage. (My gesso is white)

Then I applied Liquitex transparent raw sienna ink to darken the yellow and make 'em look old.

When that was dry, I dry brushed them with country colors (another craft paint) Off White.

I mixed some Ral Partha cleric brown with an unknown Reaper gray (it didn't have a label; I got it in the $1 paint bin last Reapercon) and applied this to the flesh.

I used Reaper Splintered Bone to pick out the bones where they showed through the wrappings.

I thinned some of the unknown Reaper gray paint to a wash, mixed it with some Army Painter soft tone, and applied that to the whole figure to make them a little darker so they'd stand out from the base.

I painted the eyes with Reaper Splintered Bone, and then applied Vallejo Game Inks Blue, Games Workshop Baal Red and Thraka Green to get the glowing effect.


I hope that helps at least a little bit.

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Another Ebay find! The base is foamboard, sand, and Vallejo Mud & Grass paint with some Citadel Stirland Battlemire. The model was a ton of fun to paint.

      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, and a lot more. And has some Undead in Jungle and or Pirate style in it.
      My Shifting Sands project is all about Undead, Arabian and Egyptian style Undead.
      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 the project 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: Since the 3D printing bug bit me, the bulk will probably become 3d printed now.
      EDIT - Asked to merge my Undead Threads into one.
      Now CHILDREN of the NIGHT.
      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

      Hey everyone, here comes another set of Mousling. This on is 01512, Mousling Zombie. It was part of Reaper Artist Con 2010 Special Edition Figures sculpted by Gene Van Horne.

      One of the first figures I pulled out of the Bones5 core set was this guy. Had fun doing him in non traditional colors. 

      The flash made him look a little brighter than it really is.
