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.
I put them on 40mm 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.
(Yes, the title is a throwback to a contest I ran years ago on here....no I'm not running another one, with today's shipping rates, ugh......)
This is where I'm going to work on 3D printed terrain pieces for Star Wars Legion, most of which currently are going to be spaceships. Because why use generic terrain when you can be shooting Rebel Scum hiding behind X-wings and the like?
Up first is this:
All the FDM bits are there, but most of the resin bits (guns, ramp, interior) are still in a bin waiting to have their supports removed and cured.
I figured I should get a thread started as maybe that will get me over that initial hurdle of actually starting. This has all been printed for a week or two and just sitting there....plus I'm gonna need that airbrush booth for other things sooner or later....
I will, of course, be attempting to make this look somewhat like the original episode 5 version, not some retconned prequel sillyness.
Now to go listen to some Prism.
