One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead, followed by Chaos and Reptilians.
I already have my Lost World Project which tells a tale of Conquistadores, Reptilians, Dinosaurs, Undead and a lot more.
However those Undead are the Egyptian Style and Pirate/Jungle style.
This thread will be filled with my beloved Gothic Undead, Demons, Monsters and all things that go bump in the night.
In my Lost World Project I tell an ongoing story, here I will post about all other dark things without coherency.
There might be snippets of loose stories to accompany a mini or not...
I hope you guys and gals and creatures will like it.
Let's kick off with the critters I painted a while ago to get a feel of what is coming.
Enjoy! ( or not)
Bats and a Murder of Crows
EDIT: I will include some Bones and minis. The bulk will be metal and I want to give this an oldschool vibe.
Preferred minis will be, Reaper, Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm, Metal Magic, Otherworld and Early Citadel.
The Asian Undead will be from Zenith since I backed the Kensei Undead Samurai KS and will get their own thread.
Changed the name of the Project.
Ral Partha Female Vampire
Lurien and Aysa
Beyond all comprehension they had lost the asset. They knew the Emperor wouldn't tolerate such incompetence which only left them one option, they had to take it back.
The Rupert called for his best and brightest, well the best and brightest the Guard had to offer. The Rupert quickly briefed the squad's sergeant before sending him off with a gruff, "Get it done".
The "Fabulous" squad charged the greenskins with cries of, "That's my purse" and "I don't know you!"
Through difficult fighting the "Fabulous" squad prevailed, but not without heavy casualties. Once the bodies, both human and xenos, were cleared away it was time for some much needed refreshment. The Rupert and the sergeant approached the asset looking forward to a much deserved reward.
And now for some "better" pictures of the Soda/Beer machine from Bones IV.
This was a ton of fun to paint and I honestly can't wait to sneak it onto my next 40K table; I see my friends getting a real kick out of this. Though the text isn't as crisp as I'd like I can always come back later after more practice. For now I'm really happy with this piece though.
By Lord of the Dish Pit
For the better part of this year, I've been going through something of a creative funk and it's been driving me a bit mad. (well more than usual anyway) So after thinking upon it for awhile, and taking the advice of the opening track of White Zombie's Astro Creep 2000, (Perhaps you'd better start at the beginning...) I've decided to embrace the madness....
By the power vested in me by the Great Pumpkin I hereby declare it to be 1996. The world is a saner place and I've just gotten my mitts on the first minis that weren't part of a boxed set or boardgame and soon shall rise a mighty skeletal horde. (To those of you who may not have been alive in '96, fret not I have decided that you exist. Ia! Ia! Ingenti Cucurbia!)
Anyway, first up are these guys.
A Heartbreaker Miniatures Army Pack that I think might be Phil Lewis sculpts. Like all of my older metal Undead, they were given a bath in Simple Green awhile back. The original Undead army had been repainted several times over the years, not yet knowing about the wonders of the Green, they had several rather thick layers on them from this. So the decision to restart from a clean slate on the whole lot was quite easy.
An Armorcast Ruined Mausoleum. Also painted several times, but I'm leery as to how the Green would react with the resin. But even with the new black undercoat, the detail isn't obscured that I can see. Now to find my Painting Flannel Of Necromancy...
Here my version of the "Dance of death" from Reaper Bones IV.
I'm still very hesitant to show it off because till the last second I was really insecure about the outcome.
First of all, the palette: right now I kinda like it, but I'm not 100% sure about 1. the base and 2. the color of the lower dragon. My first idea was to paint it white, and make it reminiscent of a battle between England's white dragon and Wales red dragon. But to paint white is always a challenge and given I'm not that familiar with the material, I decided to go with the other hard color to paint.
Now it just depicts a fictional encounter between two forgotten realms dragons: Tchazzar, infamous red wyrm, and Mergandevindasander, rumoured to have lavender eyes.
And secondly, I think I'll never fully appreciate bones... I like the fact that it's cheap, but the texture is just not the same and there's something very off on its maleability. It always makes me get tired of painting it and abandon ship without giving as much attention to details as I usually do.
IMO those two dragons are pretty nice, and if I had to object to something, it will be about their tails, a bit too plain and simple.
Any feedback incredibly welcome ^^
And if you have instagram and want to follow my gallery there... even more grateful: it's @albertnyarla
