One eyed monsters!

Look, painted mini's!!!!












These ugly fuckers were mostly painted with a series of washes. Wanted to see if I could get some good results with a quick technique. I picked out a few details here and there with paint, like their pustules and eyes, but mostly it was just washes. When I finished varnishing them I applied a few different colours of Tamiya clear to the wounds and exposed bone areas, which admittedly I went a bit overboard with. But apart from the tentacle dude, I'm pretty happy with how the rest of them turned out.

Cheers :)

  2. Very nice! Washes work well for these guys. I like the use of really bright colour in the wounds. They look really good.

    1. The bright colours in their wounds was a bit of an accident really. I applied one coat of red ink onto the white base coat. Then I painted some Tamiya clear orange onto it. It looked a little wrong, so I tried to add a bit of yellow. That looked a bit odd too, so I painted a little of the red on it. In the end they look a little fluro :D

      I'm glad I've got them done. Glad you like them Toby :)

  3. I'll probably lose my oldhammer Cree, not those are my favorite version of plague bearers. And you've done a great job on them! Plus, they look like they're having a great beach vacation!

  4. Like Andrew, I love the beach scenery. I can't believe I'm writing this, but the tropical background really accentuates the pestilential horror.
    I'm impressed and jealous of your wash-work, but these guys like amazing. I especially love that bloody tentacle.
    I also like your bases. I have a stupid question: do you paint those rocks, or leave them au naturale? In either case, they look lovely.

    1. Answer to stupid question is as follows:

      Two different grades of concrete sand applied to base with PVA. When dry I apply a dark wood varnish over all of it. Lastly, I drybrush it with Bleached Bone when the varnish is dry.

      It's a method I started using when I was playing around with dipping my mini's years ago. Kill two birds with one stone kinda thing. Glad you like the effect Matthew :)

      Re the beach, it's where all the cool cats from the chaos wastes go to kick back.

      Cheers mate :)

  6. They look great Mr. P. I don't know, that tentacle looks like what I'd imagine after a video session.

    1. Kinda reminds me of something from Wicked City.

      Thanks Sean :)

  7. They look nice. I've been using more and more of the zenithal primer method followed by a series of washes and glazes. It really speeds up the basecoat stage which for me is the most painful

    1. Yeah, I'm all about speed these days. The painting speed that is, not the illicit stuff, that won't help my painting output at all!

      Cheers Anthony :)

    1. The beach is their holiday destination of choice :)

      Glad you like them Suber. I think I'll fix up the blood effects though, too bright.

      Cheers mate :)

    1. Gee, thanks Chris :) I'm hoping to get started on finishing off my Chaos horde soon, so you'll be seeing more of my stuff.

      Cheers mate :)
