Greetings Terrans, how goes it? This is likely my last post before Christmas, but I think it’s a good ‘un 😊
First up, someone who clearly has issues forming meaningful relationships within his own species – it’s Torgillius the Chamberlain:
I liked painting this guy far more than I thought I would to be honest – I thought the model was a bit over the top when I first saw it, but having it in hand really changed my mind! Out of all of the villains, this one is the most human, so the skin tone, while pale, is at least recognisably human. I stayed away from the ‘official’ colour scheme & went with something more in line with how I’d painted the rest of the baddies, and I had a bit of fun with some OSL on that crow… I couldn’t resist adding a bit of birdie doo-doo under the crow’s perch… yeah, that’s a painting first for me :-D
Next, I gave him some pets to play with:
So that’s 2×3 unique bases each of bats and rats to give 6 total for each creature type. Notice that there are 2 bases of each that contains a bigger-than-usual specimen – I think these are ‘alpha’ bases (for lack of a better term). Really not much to say here – black contrast paint and neat drybrushing did 90% of the work for me!
The time saved on these suckers allowed me to paint these three reprobates – the Vyrkos Bloodborne:
I reckon these are some of the nicest minis in the box, and I was really looking forward to painting ‘em. The posing is really nicely done – it could easily have easily looked a bit odd having them all up in the air, but the designers absolutely nailed it in my humble opinion. I replicated the white flesh that I used on the big Vargskyr Vampire, but I also used the black-to-orange hair that I used for Radukar. I don’t have a group shot, but in hand it works nicely to unify the set, and is a nice way to conclude the evil side of the box!
That’s all for now guys & gals, have a happy & safe Christmas, and I’ll catch you all after the festivities.
