A couple of weeks ago I completed the Mine Doorways from the Shadows of Brimstone: Doorways Into Darkness set. This weekend, I painted the other half of that boxed set – the OtherWorld Doorways.
Once again, they’re pretty simple models, but nice enough for what they are. I took some inspiration from their suggested painting guide insofar as the greenish hue to the lower parts of the portal-like doorways, though I decided to paint the runes in a bright (glowing) green. I didn’t bother with OSL effects, because they’re good enough as is for boardgame doorways or potential wargame/roleplaying scenery items – as portals/etc. They certainly pass the four-foot test.
Another boxed accessory set complete!
Our scale models for the Doorways into Darkness are a trio of Conan’s Black Dragon bodyguards.
Another of the Shadows of Brimstone sets that I started last month, the set comes with 4 each of the Mine Doorways and another type, the “OtherWorlds Doorways”. I haven’t started on the Other Worlds ones, but I’ve just completed these Mine ones.
They’re not bad. Pretty simple, and as with a lot of the other models from the SoB range, they lack a bit of detail. In this case, the woodgrain in the pillars is really soft and the lanterns are a bit rough. The rocks on the sides were also as smooth as something that’s recently been polished. I gave them a bit of texture using the old dabbing with Liquid Greenstuff trick and it’s improved their appearance no end. Anyway, a relatively simple paintjob across them, and they’re now done.
There’s still another four doorways left to go – the “OtherWorld” doorways. Spoooooky!
Here’s a scale shot with a Marine and beastman as well as some other Brimstone scenery pieces I painted recently. I guess I gotta paint the other ones now, eh?
