My original plan painting these models was that the dead are cold, and so in order to convey that, I decided to stick to cool, muted tones. I ended up with a strategy where I more or less grey-ed everything out, highlighting in almost all cases with white, and using gobs and gobs of GW's now discontinued Shadow Grey.
As always, I apologize for my sub-par photography.
There's a lot of hate for these models. I had a lot of hate for these models, until I inherited some from a friend cleaning out his closet, and I realized how adorable they are. Also, they look like muppets. Adorable muppet bats. I'm still considering painting some up in bright primary colors.
The well is made from green stuff modeled around a bottle cap. The doors are made from more green stuff, with bits of an old library card as an armature. The chain is made out of a piece of chain.
The bat prophet here is made of zombie parts with a flagellant head. His hair, much of his hands, one pant leg, and book are all green stuff.
My Varghulf. I love this model. When I did this I was completely sick of the limited number of zombie heads, so I decided to try changing them up a bit by sculpting hair onto them. I'm pretty happy with the results. Various other parts of the corpses are also green stuff: one arm and shoulder, both feet, probably some other things I can't remember at the moment.
And Lord Daetrin Vallow.
I really wish I had a Terrorgeist to post pictures of, because that would complete my "things with bat wings" theme nicely, but I don't. Not only can I not afford to buy one at the moment, but the thing scares the crap out of me, partly as a painting project, but mostly because I haven't the faintest idea how I'll store and transport it when I get it.
But I hope you like these! Let me know what you think. I'll keep trickling in more.
