Bat demon's wings look translucent. Nice paint! Love using undead in my games as well.

About a millimeter away from violating the nudity rules :poke:

 

The Vampire and the Necromancer are "dressed" for the occasion, one wouldn't want blood all over a pretty dress right?

 

So to keep my promise not buying any minis, I ordered a Grenadier Undead Flyer from the Evilbay .

I can quit any time I want!

 

A question.

I will post the Egyptian Undead and Undead Pirates in my Lost World.

All will get their own Show Off of course.

 

Do we want to see those here as well?

Or shall I keep this reserved for the classic  Undead/ demons etc?

nicely done especially the demon.   

 

As to your question.. my vote is to keep them separate and leave this thread for the not-lost-world undead

Thank you, this was initially my intention as well.

 

All you see in the first post has their own show off.

One can find it in my Index of Painted minis ( see my sig)

 

SO...in order to start a proper Legion of the Death with all kinds of evil allies, I ordered some stuff from Ebay...it will arrive soon.

I  love the way you painted Lurien and Aysa.

 

Thx those were painted years ago and I sold them along with the bats and crows...

 

They can be seen here:

I might one day buy new ones and try something else.

They are lovely sculpts

Enough talk of minis I painted in the past.

 

Here is the first batch I'll be working on.

This will be a Command Group for an Undead Regiment.

I will gladly mix all sorts of Undead in one unit since I don't game.

For example, like I did in my Swamp Themed Undead Regiment before

Here:

http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/&hl=%2Bundead%2B%2Bregiment

 

Here we have REAPER 14291: Standard & Musician, Necropolis ( they came with an extra violin, useful for later)

And the Officer is a Grenadier mini.

It is actually one of the Dragonman Specialists from set 153 but I think he looks pretty demonic, so instead he will be a demon in this army.

      "Even the man who says his prayers / Before going to bed at night /
      May turn to WOLF when the wolfsbane blooms / and the moon is high and bright." --Apocryphal rhyme



      DOCTOR. A very pestilent disease, my lord,
      They call lycanthropia... 
      In those that are possess'd with 't there o'erflows
      Such melancholy humour they imagine
      Themselves to be transformed into wolves;
      Steal forth to church-yards in the dead of night,
      And dig dead bodies up: as two nights since
      One met the duke 'bout midnight in a lane
      Behind Saint Mark's church, with the leg of a man
      Upon his shoulder; and he howl'd fearfully;
      Said he was a wolf, only the difference
      Was, a wolf's skin was hairy on the outside,
      His on the inside...
       --The Duchess of Malfi



      Body horror, puberty, loss of control, loved ones acting out of character, cannibalism, madness, things more savage and bloodthirsty than we thought man or beast could be--it's a rich vein of horror. The further back you go, the more blurred the distinction between vampire and werewolf and witch becomes, but as a general rule what we now consider to be vampires are specifically betrayers of hospitality and home; like de Rais and Bathory, they commit their crimes behind closed doors. Werewolves, on the other hand, are given to savagery outdoors, in the lanes, under the moonlight, in the moors and lonesome places.

      It is appropriate then, that Julie Guthrie's werewolf 02139, is named DuChamps--of the fields. Here he is, in form much more wolf than man.



      These two pictures are behind the Spoilers tab because, while Julie did not necessarily have to sculpt Jean-Paul's werescrote and transmogrified lycanthrodong, she did that. She did that for us, because she's a PROFESSIONAL and doesn't take shortcuts. I don't think it rises to indecency, but better safe. Will delete and link if the need arises.

      Next up. the truly monstrous Werewolf, 77009. Those familiar with the role-playing game "Werewolf!" from White Wolf will recognize this as a Crinos form. Enormous, savage, horrific. This is about a 50/50 mix of Man and Wolf, but with the features dialed up to 11. I had fun painting hair on the smoother human limbs.



      And lastly, a Nolzur's werewolf I had on the Shelf of Shame. This one is mostly human but with a wolf's head and claws. 


      A note on the full moon: it's just a Nolzur's disc base painted white and poked with paintbrush ends of varying sizes during the drying phase to simulate craters. I may have to do some more of this with discs of different sizes and colors for Spacefuture shots, because multiple moons convey Other Worlds the way zeppelins convey Alternate Histories.

      Been working on a series of monster hunters from the Early Modern Era, and of course that means we need early modern monsters!

      The Vampire, of course, is one of the most versatile classics. Polidori, the "Varney" authors, LeFanu, and Stoker popularized the concept and promoted the bloated varcolac or shambling nach-zerer to the aristocracy. The variety is almost infinite, but nowadays we expect them to be parasitic, narcissistic, obsessive, entitled, compelling, rule-bound, and of course, literally blood-thirsty. 

      Here's one such vampire, the beautiful Jahenna. Alluring, beguiling, deceptive. This is one of the crispest, cleanest sculpts I've encountered with regard to hands and hair. The conveniently-non-cruciform gravestone she's sitting on bears the legend "Mircalla RIP," a nod to LeFanu's "Carmilla" (source of the Vampire Anagram trope). The dress is very Jessica Rabbit-esque and my first attempt at fabric semitranslucency. Could probably have pushed those highlights more.

       
      Matthias the Twisted, on the other hand, is a very different flavor of vampire. He gets the full Murnau/Schreck treatment. Grotesquerie, disfigurement, corruption, contagion. An asymmetric bogey, horrific, athirst, more rat than bat or wolf. I do love the adorable little plague rats around and on him.

      This mini is called "Vorvorlaka" and is from the Bones 3 kickstarter, Graveyard expansion. I based it on a 30mm lipped base.

      More undead for the table top, because you can never have too many. 
       

       
      These guys bring me to 56 minis painted for the year.

      I'm just about finished with my final piece for ReaperCon, and I needed a break. I needed to paint something fun and with no consequence. I've been eyeing this sculpt from across the room, and I just decided to go for it. Nothing super crazy, just some true metallics, which I haven't done much with in some time. Enjoy!
