Reaper Bones 77631: Vorvorlaka

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.

Promise!

Reaper Bones 77636: Death Shroud

To start February off, I had big plans. The first of which was to work on some models for Alex’s Fembruary challenge. Naturally, the first thing that I did was try to clear up the painting desk just a little. In doing so, I found a little bunch of reaper Bones models that I’d based and sprayed with Shellac some time ago in order to hopefully have them cooperate with actual paint. So I painted them instead of actual femme models – to get rid of them from the table forever – you understand! This little ghosty-thing is called Death Shroud.

I painted one of these with Hexwraith Flame and the other with Nighthaunt Gloom – GW’s proto-Contrast paints. Unfortunately, I was not happy at all with how they turned out. Yes, even for disposable Bones models. So I repainted both of them in a scheme more reminiscent of how I’d painted my previous Bones Ghosty-types and the “official” GW scheme for their Nighthaunt faction. Which, let’s face it, looks pretty bloody good. I mean they don’t pay all those artists and graphic designers to come up with shit-looking colour schemes. Anyway, I’m actually pretty happy with how these turned out in the end.

And painted, finished, done! Next!
