The Others: 7 Sins – Avatar of Wrath (#Monstermarch3 ’19)

The Others: 7 Sins - Avatar of Wrath

Here’s the penultimate post for Monster March ’19 from me. While I didn’t manage to get any of the super-large beasts I’d hoped to done, it at least worked to help me get a couple of “stuck” models like the Dracoliche, the Crawler, the Dragon Plant, the Darkstone Hydra, the Conan Dragon… yeah not too bad in terms of both numbers or motivation for getting those Neglected Monsters done.

Today then, we have another of the models from The Others: 7 Sins Kickstarter expansion packs. This time, the Avatar of Wrath. Look at that box art above! Do you think they could have made it a little more busy?

The Others: 7 Sins - Avatar of Wrath

This one was done with layer upon layer of red over a black base, then highlighted through several reds into the edge of orangey-reds and reddish-oranges. I didn’;t want to overdo it, nor did I want to veer into pink, so it may not show extreme edge highlighting – especially in these photos, that bring everything a little closer than they are in-hand, bit it works well enough. The muscle-sinew-whatever on the rend along his spine was re-darkened, and then hit with a coat of Blood For The Blood God, to give it that spiffy exposed-muscle look favoured by such luminaries as Robbie Williams.

I also made the decision to have the lower legs of this chap in a much darker red, to give a little more tonal variation to him – despite most everything being reds. You can almost see the dodgy neck join where the Chinese factory workers assembled the head a little “off”. This photo also gives us a nice little illustration of some of the extra detail present in this model along the leg and forearms. I do have to say that CMON did a pretty good job with the models on this boardgame, even if the game is forgettable. I bought it for the models rather than the game in this case, so I’m still good with it all. This guy for example, will see the most use as a Daemon Prince or Herald of Khorne. I mean, to quote Archer – “Why would you not?

Adrian Smith really seems to have a Vagina Dentata fixation – at least in the designs of so many of the monsters in this particular game. This model has one, but is far from the most egregious, and it’s the most enduring leitmotif throughout the models in this range, as you can see from checking out more of them online, or as you’ll see as I paint up more of them over time.

Finally, a sizing shot that shows the comparative sizes of both of the Avatars that I’ve painted up in the last week. Soon I should have their underlings done.

Tomorrow I’ll have my final Monster March post up. Just waiting for the final bit of snow to dry!

    • Cheers Dave. They do stand out more in person, but that’s the breaks of my phone and the lighting! (and the limits of my current photography skills!)

    • Thanks Pete. It certainly needed some variation, so the dark legs work as either different skin shading or shadow (take your pick!) And the meaty back gave me the other main point of difference aside from regular highlighting.

  1. “Of course I’m angry! You’d be angry too if you had a mouth that couldn’t close without violating multiple laws of biology and physics!” Alternately, maybe it just gets overwhelmed and touchy when it’s getting too much sensory input and that’s why there’s so much happening on the box cover 😉

    It is a pretty cool Model, tho, and it looks great with that paint job. I could also see doing it in some sort of flame or lava type colour scheme and that working out for it too, tho.

    • All that box art is missing is embedded strobing LEDs, I think. It is a pretty good model. If I’d ended up with a pair of them, I’d certainly have done a Wudugast and replaced that penile/vaginal head with a gnarly skull to match the gnarly physique. As I only have the one, I’m content to let it be in an unmodified state. I can certainly see a firey scheme working well on it, as you suggest!

  3. Funnily enough, as soon as I saw him I thought “Daemon Prince of Khorne”. Good work getting so much variety and depth out of pretty much nothing but reds. Shame the box art is so minimalistic though, I’m sure they could have got a bit more in there if they’d tried.
