Yet more Shadows of Brimstone again today! This time it’s the trio of Void Hounds that are available via the Masters of the Void expansion pack. I guess now I’ll have to paint the three Mind Flayer/Quarren lookalikes that came alongside the hounds soonish. These were another of my Contrast Paint experiments – with Magos Purple over zenithal primer looking a bit shitty, but being salvaged by successive layers of purple highlighted with Vallejo’s Sunny Skin Tone and satn spray varnish to unify it all with a just-slightly-slick look that takes away from what can be a powdery-looking finish from the drybrush.
As with so many of the Shadows of Brimstone models, they’re far from spectacular sculpts – and while these ones are alright, a quick and effective tabletop paintjob is all they really need to make an appearance in a boardgame. In a pinch, I could run them as random monster-beasties of a dozen or so different types, from Chaos Hounds to Dark Eldar/Drukhari beasts to Blink Dogs (which they sorta are in SoB). They’re not huge creatures, but they seem like they qualify pretty well as “monsters”, and they’re bigger than an orc (as Chainsaw Lass demonstrates for us here) so I’m submitting these for Monster MAYhem, over at the Angry Piper’s Blog – aka Dead Dick’s Tavern and Temporary Lodging.
