FitzBones: 77258 Blood Demon


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      AKA: Sophie's mom.  This is a model that really needs to be made in metal.  It's just awful in plastic.  Anyway, she sat on my paint table a long time before inspiration broke through and I did the wings. The rest just took patience.

      Hard to go wrong with sexy female demons, but this one was a devil in more than one sense of the word from start to finish.  Despite being cast in metal she is pretty fragile. The trident broke off and for years she sat in my box of unpainted figs, until one day I found the little pointy bit.  Her tail, likewise, kept bending and i was sure I'd lose that too. 
       
      Did her skin with the Bright Skin triad, because that's been waiting patiently for years as well.  Her face is a mess, but overall she came out ok.

      This is a vintage mini, Grenadier Dragonman Sorcerer, I got it from a BOGW a few years ago.
       
      I will use him as a Demon Officer in my Children of the Grave army, because I think he looks a bit like a classic Demon.

      Hi everyone, I completed this one last night. 02181, Sirithis the Succubus sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This is a Dark Heaven Legends model. I painted her with Reaper MSP paint and mounted her on a 40 mm round base sku: 74033. Censored for the younger audience. Uncensored version of the pictures can be found on my blog or FB page.
