Following up from the Void Sorcerers we have even more Shadows of Brimstone models. Don’t worry – we’ve got a break from these for awhile after these! These models are “Slashers”, though I keep thinking of them as Hook Horrors (I know D&D’s HHs are actually avian-inspired, not insectoid – but since I’m not a D&D guy the huge talons on these things keep beinging the name to mind.
They come from the Swamps of Death core set, and were painted as part of my attempt to try and get the core set models painted and finished (hopefully) in 2021 so we can actually try the game. The other impetus for getting started on them was Monster MAYhem (yet again). These almost got completed in June, but just slipped into the start of July, so they’re here.
The actual box comes with three, but the initial SoB kickstarter came with a set of bonus core set sprues, so I painted both sets and just did a trio each in green and in brown in case I run two sets of them for some reason down the line – and within each trio I also added some additional markings should I need to distinguish a “leader” from either group.
Once again, Chainsaw Girl Berkerly makes a cameo to help show the size of these creatures.
We’re starting off July’s models with some more Shadows of Brimstone models.
This time it’s the trio of Void Sorcerers that go with the Void Hounds completed recently – to complete the Masters of the Void expansion pack.
They’re pretty straightforward, and reasonably simple paintjobs across the three, with one of the trio painted slightly differently in case I ever need to distinguish a leader model from the three. I also turned two of their heads a little to make them a little less like photocopies of one another, though since Flying Frog’s sculptors don’t seem to understand ball joints I had to do some cutting and then putty up the gap that it created.
The text of the books was created using decals from the Forgotten Chapters Kickstarter that I backed awhile back – they’re still available from the Forgotten Chapters website, and the vendor, Bruno is a pretty nice guy to deal with.
I figured I should also take a group shot of the Void Sorcerers alongside the Void Hounds, given that they’re both parts of the same boxed set if you were to purchase them today. Having gotten them all complete, I may even be able to take a short break from pinks and purples for a little while now…
I’ve also thrown old Chainsaw Girl Berkerly in there as well so you can see that the Sorcerers are also some tall bois. As with many of the models I paint, and especially for the Brimstone ones, they’re pretty versatile with potential for a variety of games. So there’s that. 🙂
