The other pair of Bones models that I painted alongside the two Death Shrouds from yesterday were this pair of gargoyles. Well, I thought they were Gargoyles, anyway until writing the text for this post! Turns out, this model is something called Vorvorlaka, and is, in fact, a Vampire. I guess I can see that, in that mostrous and bestial form of vampire we sometimes see. Still, these models hardly scream “hero”-type model to me, so they’ll just be used as a pair of gargoyles in whatever RPG or boardgame or minatures game that calls for a couple of them. I also achieved the slight variation in pose by… I didn’t do anything – they’re bendy PVC models!
As with the Death Shrouds, these were sprayed with Shellac primer to let paint actually adhere to them, and in this case I went over that shellac with Reaper’s own Brown Liner, and mostly painted them using Reaper’s HD paint line, which seems to play well enough with Bones material. I added a bit of flesh and purple to the wings in thin glazes as well as some very thinned green to the torsos – to add that touch of visual interest over everything just being in shades of grey. Most importantly, once again – done, done and onto the next one.
Next models will be much more interesting.
