The Plague Year: Reaper's Four Horsemen and Friends

Recommended Posts

This is all mostly Glitterwolf's fault....mostly...

His Painting the Pandemic Challenge was the excuse I've been waiting for to tackle Reaper's Four Horsemen. I first saw them at Leisure Hours Hobbies in Plainfield back when I was first getting started in the hobby, and they were one of those "I'll eventually get these", things since they kinda fit in with my undead army, but I was concentrating more on units at the time...anyway, combining with the recent events of the year, I've been tempted by the idea of going back to the start of the DHL line and painting my way forward. Thus the birth of yet another WIP thead.

We begin with 02001 Reaper Famine.


Other than priming, haven't done anything with the rider yet. 


As Buglips noted in his WIP, trying to figure out what is skin/bone/fleshy bits was a bit confusing. The skin is Ghoul Skin, bone is Dirty Bone, and fleshy meat bits and organs are Red Gore.


Steel Legion Drab on the base, and began putting Rotting Wood on the harness and saddle.

Finally got the Rotting Wood finished.


I love the color, but for some reason the paint is extremely thin, despite being shaken like it was turned over to a British nanny, so instead of the two coats I was expecting, it took more like four...


Now onward to the mane and tail.

Mane and tail done in Shadowed Stone. Discovered that on the top of it's neck is another exposed muscle section that I painted over as flesh, so I'll fix that in a bit.


Dirty Bone on the rider.

A bit more progress...


Based the rider's armor in Ebony Flesh and doused him in Brown Wash. Still trying to decide if I should try for a withered brown or a bronze for it. 


Brown Wash on the bones, Druchii Violet wash on the muscle and innards.



There's a lot of gore on the underside...

A little inspiration!





Nice slow brooding going on there, good stuff.

Hopefully I can get the Graveguard finished off in the next week or so, and get this back on the table, maybe even get the project finished before 2021. (although I am still trying to figure out how to incorperate Murder Hornets and Zombie Cicadas into the scene, plus whatever else gets added in this year)

      I started a challenge so naturally I couldn't stay behind myself.
      Meet Agent Anthrax, my first 3D print now painted for the challenge.
      I figured he also deserved his own Show Off.

      Okay people, we have a pandemic on our hands, we're all affected by it in some way.
      I hereby put out a challenge to all of you:
      Paint a mini, build a diorama, print a 3D print, draw something, whatever you feel like that has to do with either the current pandemic or an earlier plague/disaster.
      You could go realistic or fantasy/scifi/ pulp style.
      Make it a tribute to those who fight the virus or show the horrors of a plague in a medieval setting.
      It's up to you
      Medical Staff Empty street diorama People in hazmat suits Police/firefighters People in lockdown Hoarders/looters Plague victims Plague doctors  
      No rewards here, just for the sake of creativity.
      If you can't paint right now but have a suitable piece to show you did earlier, post it.
      Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, let's try to at least fight the loniless and fear by being creative with it.
      Post as many stuff as you like.
      No rules only that it has to has something to do with a pandemic/plague/ disaster from your point of view.

      I need to hone my P2e GM skills so I'd like to offer up a pbp for The Fall of Plaguestone!
      Looking for 4 players for a daily/weekly, depending on the game flow. Just post to this thread if your interested!
      Character creation is the following: 
      Standard creation from the 2e Core Hardback. 1st level (Obviously this means, you need to own the hardback or pdf, thou there is the site Archives of Nethys srd site (just make sure the 2e wording is the BOLD selected) thou I haven't really looked into that site, so I'm not totally sure full character creation is up on there).
      While this is not the Adventure Path, the adventure does have backgrounds that tie in the characters with the adventure. If you'd like one of these background please post & I'll get a PM to you. Also if we get going & the Lost Omens Character Guide comes out, I will allow the 3 new races that are featured in that book (Hobgoblin, Leshy & Lizardfolk), you can just swap out your existing character without any penalties.

      In a recent one-day run through Ravenloft, I played a halfling paladin who rode a war dog. He was so fun to play that I have to make minis for them. Here is the start of Garr.
