Graveyard Expansion Ghost

Recommended Posts

1st time poster longtime lurker :) 

Its my 1st time working on a ghost mini and I am looking for some advice. I and using the white basecoat then verdigris technique to try and paint this guy up but I feel like there is something missing from it. I also feel like the I need to do something with the center hollow part on his front side. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance all!

Looks good so far.

 

Advice is depending on what kind of effect you want.

Anyway, you could darken the inside to create a shadow effect and bring out the green more.

 

Maybe a walnut brown?

Speakin' ex cathedra from out of my hat, if it was ME, I'd put a heavy green shade in the hollow... and then do a couple of red glowy eye effects inside the hood.

In fact, I think I'll go do that now. You's an inspiration.

Welcome to the forums! ^_^ Looking good so far!

 

So if I were working on this guy, I would do a dark navy blue in the hollow part, with pure black only in the very deepest parts, as that will give it a bit more visual interest. I would also take either Moth Green or Alien Goo (both Reaper paints) and thin them out to work into the highlights to give a little bit of an otherworldly glow to him. (Any sort of "neon" green or yellow would do - or you could take the green you used and add a really bright yellow to it.) Then I'd take the same navy blue from the hollow, thin it really well, and work it into the shadows. I would also take an olive green and work that into the shadows for some variation there.

      Nolzur's do make a few great monster minis, even though most -if not all- of their humanoid minis are too small, weedy and have too shallow detailing for my liking. Here is one:

      Yep, a dead head.

      50mm base.
      The main colour is Citadel Contrast Plaguebearer flesh, the rest is regular paint.
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      I have no idea who sculpted this, as WizKids do not -as far as I know- publish this info.

      I've got more dead things for you today.  @Igormortis isn't the only one looking for some dirty dead!  Here's my little collection of swamp zombies.


       
      The crowning jewel of this set is of course the Dreadmere Wight from Bone 4 Dreadmere.
       


       
      He's got plenty of character packed into such a simple model.  I love him.

      Along side him we have a repainted Zombie from D&D Giants of Legend prepaints (#40).



       
      I've had this guy for ages, way before i learned to play D&D or ever picked up a mini brush.  His paintjob was pretty bland and I definitely think I (un)livened him up.  Would make a great shaman-type mini.

      And filling out the horde we have the Zombies from the Castle Ravenloft board game.  Again.  Rather bland sculpts, but I like them a lot more now.  Their weird posture was the inspiration for the swamp theme as I imagined them pulling themselves up out of the muck.



       
      All together, they're a fun thematic set and add for some variety to my dusty Graveyard Zombies.

      Which one do you like best?

      Crawling back from the dead here with this fun little handful of zombies!  Added some gravestones to a few of them using popsicle sticks.  Just good ole' classic grave crawling zombies.  Went for a dusty color palette.
       
      Which one do you think turned out best?

      Unknown female vampire figure I picked up in a boxed game set.  Can't remember the exact name or manufacturer.  Box art showed them in purple, I wanted to explore other colors.  I see her as the kind of vampire that likes to play with her food and enjoys a bit of lively sport. I have 2 of her sisters to do in other colors. 
       

       
      The photo is a bit washed out from the flash.  Her skin is a pale grey, different than her white gloves.  Casting on the face is strange, she has an odd shaped mouth, and no nose so I painted one on.

      And what's a graveyard setting without some undead wolves to harry the party in the snow?
