Bombshell Squidfellas (Counterblast Edofleini)

Recommended Posts

Wish I'd taken more in-progress pics here, but when the muse strikes...

Anyway, I got my hands on some figures from Bombshell's Counterblast, specifically the Edofleini faction. Could be described as BRAIN SQUIDS FROM SPAAAAAAACE!! (I assume you read that with the reverb turned up.)

Decided to use the color scheme from this lovely shot of a coconut octopus:

These were the paints used for the bodies; AP Toxic Mist plus some turquoisish Reaper sample paint was used for the suckers, and AP Greedy Gold for the jewelry and weaponry. Also used AP Kraken Skin for the leader's mini-cape. Seemed appropriate.

Blue-black tentacles, eventually shading up to the rusty Astorath Red.

A touch of color for the accessories and suckers:

Then a great amount of drybrushing in shades of orange and yellow. I wanted the siphons to be the brightest points.

I feel like they are close to done--should I add another coat of red wash, or use something darker?

Amazing!

 

Green wash can bring out reds more, just a tip!

I have seen the miniatures while browsing Bombshell Babes, but I didn't realize the were that cool. They look like War of the Worlds style Martians...H.G.Wells would be proud. Have FUN with the painting et al.

Your counsel is WISE. Let it be so!

They are delightful, and come in a variety of sizes, which I like very much. I've been coveting them for a while now. WotW is exactly right... there's even a Tripod and pilot (but it costs money).

Nailed it!

Thanks you! Thanks all around. I think they're ready, but my camera ate another round of batteries. Will post in Show-Off soon.
