Hell hounds from Bones 4

Recommended Posts

Getting into more Bones 4 goodies. (For once being in Canada is to my advantage when it comes to shipping!) Doing some frankly ridiculous hell hounds from the Fan Favourites expansion. Ridiculous because of the colours I've chosen, to be clear - the sculpts are delightful, if a little more explicitly male than I might have preferred... :lol:

 

This first one is going to have a pink glow in all the cracks. The goal is to look sort of like lava only weird and magical. Not sure how well it's going to look but we'll find out! :poke:

 

First step was to paint the poor beastie pink... Really only the cracks needed to be pink but there are so many cracks and I was so tired when I was doing this that I just slopped pink everywhere:

Then tonight I started to go back and make the dark plates:

Hopefully more tomorrow!

The Nasty Puppy is rabid in pink; that has a nice ring to it. It is good to see you posting your work. Keep up the SPLENDID efforts...if you feel like it.

I think I found the one angle where that happens. It really is a lovely sculpt. ::):

Oh yes! I'm having fun painting these. It definitely helps that I've given myself permission to fail - if they end up looking like garbage, oh well, it's still an interesting experiment. :;): Takes a lot of the pressure off!

Ask and ye shall receive!

 

... Yeah, I'm slow, and I have very little time to paint. But at least it's progress. :poke:

Going to be reducing the width of the pink cracks, especially on the face... Right now I'm focusing mostly on getting the shapes blocked in, but the colour is starting to hide the sculpt rather than enhance it... Still having fun though. ^_^

@canuckotter I'm happy to see you posting more again WOOF has missed our Otter Agent!

 

It's an original take on Hellhounds, and to me they do give off a Slaanesh vibe ( always been a fan of Nurgle and Slaanesh) maybe use a subtile dark purple wash?

      This is Mavaro, Iconic Occultist sculpted by Bobby Jackson from the Bone 4 Core Pathfinder Iconics II subset. This is now available on the Reaper store as SKU: 89051. He reminds me of a bard who went for oration as his talent.

      A winter storm buried my part of the globe in snow last night so I'm filling a bit chilly.  So today's the perfect day to show off these frigid little birds from Bones 4.

      These were a fun little set, though they took me longer to do than I anticipated.  So much black and white really killed my motivation.  Glad they're done and decently satisfied with the results.  They make a nice addition to my winter collection.  If you want to see more of my wintery minis, check out my ongoing Frostrun Project Here

      Off the Bones 4 Fan Favorites expansion, the Hell Hounds. Woof woof.


      Three surprisingly cute massive hellish hot dogs, with lavacracks and all. And they have spiked collars with a massive ring on the top.

      And very obviously male. Those are the Dogs' Bollocks!
      Again, these do look better IRL than in the blown up pictures. Much better, to my eyes at least.

      How to paint lava-look minis:

      Start with a stark white basecoat. Drybrush the following colours starting with heavy pressure to lighter pressure with the darker colours:

      Bright yellow, golden yellow, orange or peachy pink, dark red or wine red, dark brown, dark grey/black, pure black.
      Use a big, soft brush (such as a make-up brush) and make sure to wipe a lot of the paint off the bristles (more than you think!) and build the colours up gradually to avoid streaking.
       
      Be aware that when painting light to dark, they will look wierd and as failures almost up to the very last coast. Keep with it!

      I did the bases with black flock, as they have burned everything to a crisp.

      Nice doggies?
      -
      I put them on 50mm bases. These are sculpted by Chris Lewis and made in Bones Black PVC.
      They are currently available from reapermini.com
      These minis were finished on December 4th, 2020.

      Arrgh!  This week we be havin a dreadful lot o' ghostly pirates that'll be sendin shivers down yer timbers.
       

       
      This accursed crew of damned delinquents are the Ghost Pirates from Bones 4, or the soon-to-be-released Ghosts of the Drowned Nymph (77745) and the Shades of the Drowned Nymph (77747).  I painted these up similarly to the way I painted the spiritual glow of my Demi Lich.  But I didn't want them to all just be blue so I went for a transitional look.  As if they are materializing out of the ethereal plane.  They may have looked fine either way, but I tend to enjoy lots of colors in my minis.  I also chose to paint over nearly all of the translucent material.  I think I'm officially in the paint-over-it camp.
       
      Read on for More Photos:
       
      These guys were quite a bit of fun to paint.  Check out their WIP and my other piratey minis here.
       
      Which ghost is your favorite?
       
      Also, where do you stand on the translucent mini debate?  Paint over them?  Washes and drybrush?  Or leave them as is?
