Shadows of Brimstone: Werewolf Feral Kin (Squad: March! ’19, Gender-Ambiguous Model Painting Challenge ’19)

Shadows of Brimstone: Werewolf Feral Kin

More Shadows of Brimstone models this time. In fact, this set of models that helped to inspire the Gender-Ambiguous Challenge for March, so they’re a nice little set that covers both the Squad Challenge from March as well as the Gender Challenge.

These Brimstone models also suffered from the “shitty HIPS model” syndrome that I’ve complained about a few times. The main culprit with these being that they came in only two poses, with no body interchangability between them. Yes folks, despite being made of three parts (hips, torso, head) the torsos only fit their own specific set of legs. Because I wanted slightly fewer clones, I took a hobby knife to the plastic, along with the minimum amount of putty repair that I could manage to swap a few of them around. Rookie mistake! Let’s be perfectly honest, though – the only reason that these sprues got removed from the box was because I saw them as “easy wins” – models that could be painted up relatively quickly and easily. Because they’re just fur, basically!

At one point in the month, if I were posting more frequently, these would have been posted as two separate units of three, as the Brown Trio and then the Grey/Black Trio, especially as both subsets were completed nearly a week apart. No matter now, though.

The main reasons I painted them in these two (well, three) overall schemes was to provide differentiation if it was needed. As I (still) haven’t gotten around to playing SoB yet, I’m not sure if it used the “elites” concept for larger numbers of mobs in the same way that, say, Descent or Imperial Assault do. It also lets me do the same if it ever becomes needed in any other game, with an Alpha, two Betas or lieutenants, and then the brown trio being the more general pack (were)wolves.

These models were also the first ones that I tried a new can of Spray Varnish from AK Interactive. I don’t have any nice things to say about that experience, but I’ll have a review of the AK cans up hopefully sooner than later, sometime this month when I have a spare post slot. The one spoiler I’ll give is that I had to respray these after trying the AK…

That’s basically it for today’s post – another six Brimstone models done and done. That might be it for my March models. I’ll have to check.

Because of all the shit that’s gone down IRL recently, I’ll figure out if I have any more not-yet-posted March models, then I’ll do my round-up, and then I’ll start putting together the Community Round-up that will be done when it’s done. I’ve (hopefully) got to pick Dad up from Hospital on Monday, but before (and after) that, I still need to visit him daily for awhile, and of course there’s other family bullshit that’s just appeared. Then on the distract myself with entertainment so I don’t throw a chair through a fucking window side, there’s NXT Takeover that I need to catch up on, the NJPW/RoH show Sunday morning, and something like 8-10 hours of Wrestlemania on Monday that will probably take 2-3 days to watch because fuck that’s a lot of wrestling in a short amount of time. All of these things will delay the Community Round-Up.

C’est la vie.

  1. Great looking wolves, especially like the tonal differences and the way you’ve included wolf markings on them.
    Enjoy the wrestling, I’m going to try and watch the wreslemania in one hit, but very much doubt I’ll make it to the end ! LOL

    • Thanks Dave – Due to all the family shenanigans, I still haven’t started on WM (we had to go bring Dad home when it was on). I still haven’t finished Takeover, which I want to do before we start on WM, because spoilers. 2 more hours left of that yet.
      Did finally finish the NJPW/RoH G1 Supercard, though. So still a ton of last weekend’s wrestling to try and watch this weekend!

  2. Like the wolves! The difference in colouring really helps to give variation overall to them in addition to your cut-and-fill tweaks! They’re a vicious looking bunch! And that sounds like quite a bit of entertainment to get through! 🙂

    • Thanks John. They’re very average figures, so I’m happy enough with the final result there. Still something like 15 hours of wrasslin’ left to get through, especially with the Raw and Smackdown to follow up on as well now! 😛
