I’m still working on Tzeentch-themed minis. Here’s a recent effort – the blue incarnations of the Pink Horror I finished a while ago. It’s two first generation Blue Horrors in all their grotesque glory. The paintjob was fairly easy but in fact it was a challenge to come up with ways to break all the blue. I went with yellow and light green details. The fingers on the one to the left looks messy in the photo but in real life the blending of the yellow, blue and green works.
Tomorrow I’m heading for Kliplev to play an Oldhammer scenario entitled “Like a bat out of hell…” with Claus and Anders which I’m very excited about. I’ll of course try to give you a report of the proceedings.
I have been working on-and-off on this monstrosity for a while and managed to finish it a couple of nights ago. Basically I needed some sort of flesh eating giant plant for a scenario we are going to play in a few weeks. I went looking for suitable plastic plants on the Internet but could not find exactly what I was looking for. That is a huge Venus flytrap-looking plant like the one from the remake of Roger Corman’s Little Shop of Horrors. Thus I finally decided to build the thing myself.
It’s a fairly simple job. For the plant heads I used some leaves from an old plastic plant I had already while the rest more or less was made from scratch. In the scenario the plant is created by a sorcerer of Tzeentch, I therefore decided to keep the colours of the plastic plant and to paint my flesh eating horror in tzeentchian colours. At the same time I had in mind that it also could serve as some sort of weird space plant or terrain piece for the chaos wastes in future games.
It took some time to finish but it was actually quite fun. The whole process was documented almost step-by-step and you can see the pictures here.
Oh, and by the way, plane tickets and the hotel is now booked for the BOYL event in August! Need I tell how excited I am?
I more or less finished this delightful mini this weekend. Actually I only need to clean up the transparent stick and that’s it. It’s for sure one of the weirder chaos models Citadel produced back in the day. I guess it’s one big homage to John Blanche and his wonderful recurring moonfaced characters. The miniature is packed with details and it took me ages to finish. It probably didn’t help that I ended up doing some conversions on him and went overboard on the base with all the greenstuff plants.
The amount of details was truly a challenge when it came to choosing the colours. Initially I had envisioned something different for him, a metallic, golden look actually. However, I couldn’t make it work and ended up with something traditional tzeentchian.
His name is Baar and I think he’ll jump on this disc and swing by the BOYL-event.
Here’s a rather large chap that I’ve just finished. A mid-90’s Pink Horror; in fact I think he was sold as a Pink Horror Champion. To spice things up a bit I added an extra arm where his tail should be. I rarely use such amounts of pink which made him quite fun to paint, however, once finished I felt the demon lacked something. I thus decided to give the whole mini a dose of gloss and somehow it gave the pink surfaces a bit more character.
Nevertheless it is an odd miniature and I guess these ‘horrors’ are an acquired taste. I cannot decide whether or not I truly like them. On the one hand they are almost too goofy, on the other hand they are so delightfully grotesque. I must admit though, that I’m looking forward to painting his two blue, lesser incarnations!
Was it a mistake to give him the gloss? Would you have done so?
