I have a thing for ghouls. I love the Lovecraftian ghoul mythology and I’ve been collecting different ghoul miniatures for some time now. Next week we’re going to play an Oldhammer scenario entitled In the Hall of the Ghoul King and of course this has given me the opportunity to do something about some of my ghoul miniatures.
I’ve actually been spending quite some time over the past weeks painting ghouls and what you see here is the first batch. The great Ghoul Tribe from Heresy Miniatures; an absolutely splendid pack of minis which perfectly reeks of splatter horror films and grisly cannibalism. Pure comfort food for a horror buff like me!
The ghouls were, by the way, sculpted by the ghoul master himself – Paul Muller. A sculptor who’ll be featured again over next posts when I show you some of the other ghoulies I’ve been working on. I’m not sure when these ghouls were produced but probably sometime around 2000 but here I may be mistaken.
Usually I’m no big fan of dousing my miniatures in gore but following the lead from the miniatures presented on the Heresy webpage, I couldn’t resist going all the way and soak mine in blood as well. This gave me a chance to actually experiment with painting blood, which in fact was quite nice, but I’ll probably not be doing stuff like this again for some time.
