Greetings Terrans, it’ll be another short one today – I’m keeping the ball rolling with my Conan characters, and have another pair to show you. First off, we have this guy – apparently he is ‘Khosatral Khel’, the physical manifestation of a demon (or god) in one of Howard’s short stories:
Clearly Mr. Khel is a fan of the ‘Tren look’, and all that muscle allowed me to have good fun with the paint. I worked through Darkoath Flesh, through Cadian fleshtone & Kislev flesh, and with a bit of shading back down with Reikland Fleshshade. A few more shades were used on the face & for the veins. I think this will be my go-to for Caucasian skin for a while, as I like how the tones play out across the whole model. The rest was pretty much my now-standard ‘Contrast basecoat, layered highlights’ approach.
Next we have another baddie – ‘Akivasha, the woman who never died’… Basically, she’s a vampire:
Akivasha is another model lifted straight out of the book – i.e. an under-dressed femme fatal. Again, I’m not getting hung up on that, but just enjoyed the process of painting her. I used the same skin recipe as I did for Khosatral Khel, with a bit more shading around the eyes & leaving out the ‘roider veins.
Here’s the devious duo together:
You can see what a big bugger Khosatral Khel is!!
And that’s it for this week! I’m enjoying working my way through the characters – they are pretty decent minis for the most part, (though there are a few stinkers), so more to share soon.
