FitzBones: 77258 Blood Demon

Recommended Posts

20170414ReaperHookHeadDemon.jpg

 

Here's another of my vast stash of Bones figures, now splashed with paint. This is a very quick and unfussy paint job, and not really a very good one, but it will do the job. It took me about half an hour.

It appears in Reaper's inventory as 77258: Blood Demon, but it seems pretty clear that it's based on an AD&D minor demon called a Babau that I first saw in the MM2, published in 1983.

(☞゚ヮ゚)☞  Great catch!

 

Nice speed paint. Can't believe you can knock out a mini in under an hour. It almost looks like some kind of undead or skeletal tiefling. So cool that it's actually an old school MM2 baddie. The base came out especially nice. Love how much contrast you gave it. He should look fearsome on the table.

It's mostly cheating :)

 

I spray the whole thing black, then do a zenithal (highlight) spray in white from above. A black wash defines any lines that the spray has filled in, and then I do a semi-dry-brush in pure white to pull out the highlights. That gives me a black-and-white figure with all the tonal values in place, which I then colour with transparent inks. After that, it's just a case of going in to highlight anything that needs highlighting, like the claws and teeth and the edges of the rocks and what-have-you.

 

And that's about it. It's not a process that will work for every mini, but for mooks like this it's very quick and easy.

      This statuesque demon prince has been on my to paint list for a while.  Had fun using non-black blacks on him, skin base is Coal Black (Reaper 9693), highlighted with Coal Black mixed with neutral greys and also Mint Green for the highest highlights.  The base cobblestones are Black indigo (Reaper 9603), with Lava Orange (Reaper 9218) as mortar. Also decided to try out the NMM Gold triad, so all the gold is NMM.

      This is the Chasme from the AD&D Planescape line from Ral Partha (SKU 11-649).  Painted with the new mermaid scale paint from the pre-order Brinewind set.  Painted over Coal Black it makes great shiny insect carapace, and over white, awesome looking insect wings.  I also had fun making a lava river for this creepy demon critter.

      Abyss Demon this one came as a sample for presupported minis without his hands, so I printed two claws from the Death Tide Jurakin Set and upscaled those to 125% to fit the Demon.
      He's part of my Horde of the North Project.

      The Horde marches South to the civilized lands, ready to plunder and pillage.
      Led by the mighty Mumlak all barbarians, beastmen, orcs and trolls join the Horde.
      The Horde grows, sometimes a group gets impatient and infighting is common, Mumlak cares not.
      There are enough warriors to conquer the Realm of Men.
       
      A Shaman has performed a dark ritual and summoned a demon to join their cause.
      Full of rage the clawed abomination enters the mortal realm, ready to kill.
      Amused Mumlak watches the scene, wondering if the shaman will be able to control the demon.
