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?

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      Finished a couple of the Greybeards set from Bones 4. Here's the latest:
       

       
      The camera's being a bit weird and I can't get the colours right for both the clothing and skin at the same time, so the first pic is to show off the skin colour and the rest are to show off the colours for the rest.
       
      It's been a while since I've done any significant painting so my skills are pretty rusty, but I moved my hobby area and finally got some motivation so I decided to make sure that I had spare wizards so friends could join a spontaneous game of Frostgrave with me if they wanted to. It's never happened but I wanted to be prepared.

      Hooray! It's an entire tribe of orc warrior women ready to crack some heads!
       
      I rebase all of my Reaper models, but these had such thin integrated bases that I was able to glue them directly onto Reaper's 32mm round gaming bases and still keep some of the original details. You can see this most clearly with the top of the skull on the base of the Jade Fire Champion (the warrior with the two-handed axe) and the bleached ribcage at the feet of the Jade Fire Shaman.
