Reaper Bones Ghouls...
I'm happy with how they came out, flesh tones and blending aren't my usual strong points, but after plundering some ideas from the Inq28/ Blanchjutsu folks I'm finding it easier.
and now we let them return to their lunch...
Still needs some basing, but he's off to a good start.
Interesting how this worked out.
I did dry brushing on the first two layers of greens.
Then went back in with regular brush and layers, but didn't think it was loud enough. What this? A huge stock pile of BCA pink? Better put it to use. I mixed that into the alien green and base, then touched it up with pink to add some warmth (i mean as warm as aghast should be #dead) in the highlights. Pink and green were a fun combo.
I'm not totally into the tattered shirt colors the more i look at it. I may need to use a wash over it, which i try to avoid, to add some dirt/grime look to it. It's too clean and vibrant. But hey, i did layer nicely. Win.
I wasn't sure about the facial features. I ended up just touching it up with a little green yellow for discoloration around the mouth, but seems like he still needs something.
Next thing i need to do is make a fun base for him. Something Halloween feeling for sure. Thanks @Reaper_Jonfor the ghoulie bags and free minis. Putting them to good use.
The Ghouls, aka the Flesh-Eater Court faction's warband was the first to be released seperately for Beastgrave, the third season of the Warhammer Underworld game, apart from the warbands in the Beastgrave game set that is.
As soon as I saw these, I knew I had to have them. Still, it took me several months after building and undercoating them until I got around to actually painting them. Much like most minis I compulsively buy. I still have first and second season warbands to paint...and most of a ghoul king army...
I did these in the same sitting as the Reaper Bones Hungering Dead. Luckily, ghouls can be really quickly painted with good results.
These I had undercoated black with white zenithal when I first bought them, before standing around gathering dust for a few months.
