Ok, a while back a friend of mine on the Otherworld forum asked me if I wouldn’t mind painting up a few of his old minis, in return for a camera with which to take better pics for this blog… As you can see I now have the camera, so it’s about time I shared some pictures of the miniatures from the challenge.
And what a Challenge it’s been! As I write I’m looking at the last batch and thinking about colour schemes and by the time I finish Part 6 of this series Cthulhu should have his mini’s back on Canadian soil.
So lets look at the first 6 models…
Lets take a closer look at each model.
Very few models could pull this colour scheme off, but I really think he does…
The Chaos Lord is old Games Workshop and I really enjoyed painting this guy. While I was painting him I couldn’t help feel that he should be some kind of mutant Umber Hulk crossbreed. The slime-like filth dripping from his robes is particularly satisfying…
Finally, the Otherworld Giant Centipedes. I have four of my own that need painting too…
This is the colour scheme I had planned for mine.
These colours were picked out by Cthulhu himself.
This is possibly my favourite one.
And this one took much longer than it should.
Overall I was very happy with all 6 of these guys and I really enjoyed the chance to use my inks for that insectoid shine that always feels out of place on other models.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this mini-showcase, check back next week for another batch.
*p.s. Camera had not arrived when I took some of these pictures.*
