Hi everyone, here's 07002, Baran Blacktree, Veteran Warrior sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I painted it with Reaper’s MSP acrylics and shaded with Citadel inks. Also, I use Vallejo Acrylic Matt Varnish for the first time on this model. I like that varnish, it's perfectly flat and don't add any artificial reflection. I 3d printed the base to match with the tiles on the diorama it will eventually be displayed on.
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.
The obligatory size comparisons...

Hello forum family, wanna share with you my last mini painted (I'm so lazy in this time of the year...).
I have two figure of Luwin, so I decided to paint it again, this time in more natural colors.
It took me a good 10 hours to place the OSL, as he is plenty of details and it was no easy to figure out where to place the shadows, but anyway I'm pretty happy of the result :)
Hope you'll like him too. As always every C&C is more than welcome, help me see what I can't see :)
Thanks for watching
Hello forum family, wanna show you my last work: Sister Hazel.
Was aiming to a realistic look, she came out cartoonish (as always)...
Had some problems painting the bottles and had to paint it twice cause at first I've inverted the shadows and it looked like Windows XP desktop image -.-
Still no good, but at least it look like bottles Same problem with the googles.
I'm happy with the blood splat and the dirty look, that's probably the only part I'm happy with.
Every advise is suuuuper welcome (please!)
