Spooky encounters

Hi everyone! I hope things are going well out there. I'm still under this kind of home arrest, leaving only for unavoidable job issues and things of the like. Still not much hobby time, but I managed to spill some paint on these minis, coming from the Kickstarter Wally Harwood from Harwood Hobbies launched with Ana Polanscak's from Gardens of Hecate sculpts.

I never had any certain project in mind, but wanted a fistful of these so bad that I couldn't resist. I didn't get the full batch though; I got the Blood Fiend:

Anthropomorphic (or whatever) representation of Covid-19
It's so Blanchesque in its conception that I couldn't but avoid to get one, it's the fabric of nightmares, I simply love it. I don't have a current project for this one, but it will fit in some kind of Undead army, or even better as a beast from the Warp which needs to be taken down, I think the scenario writes  itself.

I also got the signs:

Atmospherical indeed
I couldn't manage to make the signs readable, but I think they all serve their purpose. I simply love them.

Spooky encounters on the forgotten realms. Yeah, I need a backdrop
I'm enjoying the fact of grabbing just a few minis and having this 'closure' feeling. It's nice among my other larger projects and really helps to see something finished. So I'll be looking for more...

  2. Looking good there. I like the colour scheme on the Fiend. I'm currently working my way through my box of random models too!

    1. Isn't it fun to delve into the box and suddenly discover some mini you had totally forgotten about? Like 'oh, my, did I back this KS? When did I buy this one? Oohh, right, I had these waiting for their moment to come...' :D

    1. Thanks! Well, everything Ana Polanscak does is pretty awesome, I couldn't resist to get some stuff!

  4. A very creepy model, but I like the style. He would be great for a Mordheim undead warband. Signs are fantastic too.

    1. The whole concept is hugely unsettling, and that's its greater value. I think I can find a number of ambientations for this one; but right, this is calling for some Mordheim, isn't it? ;)

  5. He visto la foto y he pensado ..."la de Blanche!" El hombre tenía una conversión idéntica, el cuerpo de un bloodletter y el cráneo de un caballo esqueleto.

    Como homenaje está bien, pero es "vender" una mini del concepto que ha hecho otro. No se... ("no me guhta, anarossa" Peñafiel style).

    No sé si por chiripa o que pero también la has pintado como hizo el :))

    Sea como fuere, mola bastante!

    1. Huy, pues ahora no la identifico. Igual la he visto y ahora no caigo. Pero vamos, desde luego fue ver la mini y pensar en Blanche, desde luego.
      Sopesé pintar la cara de rojo, como si estuviera todo cubierto de sangre, pero ante el elevado riesgo de pifia, lo dejé estar :D

  6. Fantasy Miniatures 1988. In libro en tapa dura del golden demon de ese año. Tengo un par. En concreto es un cuerpo de bloodletter antiguo sin brazos, con la cabeza de un mimotauro y montado por un mini esqueleto (de los que tenían montura voladora, que eran diminutos, con túnica).

    He sacado foto con el móvil, ya lo subiré en algún post para que lo veas.

  7. Lovely, creepy figure! You hit the nail right on the head with Blanchesque, perfect!

    1. Thank you so much! It's pretty disturbing, and that's the value of this little monster. I definitely have to design a scenario around it!

  8. Me encantan esos postes, es verlos y pensar en Mordheim..., es pensar en Mordheim y mis ojos se inundan de lágrimas..., ¿por qué ha vuelto mi amada Necromunda y Mordheim aún no lo ha hecho...?, 😭
    Mira que me recomendaste por activa y por pasiva entrar en ese Kickstarter y al final no lo hice. Ahora me merezco que me digas: “te lo dije”.
    Deseando ver cómo pintas el resto, que traía auténticas maravillas

    1. Los postes son una preciosidad, y es cierto, son puro Mordheim. ¡Es que de hecho me obliga a montarme un tablero acorde con ellos! Yo doy por sentado que Mordeim volverá, año arriba, año abajo, con el lanzamiento de Warhammer The Old World. Entonces ya hablaremos...

  9. If there was ever a spot on and creepy representation of COVID-19 ... that mini you painted is it. Ewwww ... as in nice job! As for the signs, they look fantastic in my opinion. The fact that the words are illegible is irrelevant at this scale I think ... they still look incredible to me. :)

    1. That's very kind of you, but I think/hope/wish I can do better, so I must try and try and try until I get it done! :)
