A step forward into terror

Today I have a pretty multidisciplinar update for you. There is some chibis, some asian tales and some terror, and a combination of them all.

Braving the Mansions of Madness
Random assortment of chibis
 Let's start with Mansions of Madness, painting the adventurers was pretty straightforward based on their card colors.

Then I did some of the enemies, starting with those maniacal loonies.


Their eyes were painted red with a black contour so they look creepy as f**k.
The witches were also pretty straightforward. I did some magical markings in one of them on a lovecraftian emerald I had here that I almost never use. Eyes were kept white for extra creepiness.

Still on the creepy side, I finished Beyond the Grave's Igor, and the crazy easter bunny Nibbles of Caerbannog.

Nibbles & Igor
I painted those cilinders on Nibbles back as if they were some chemical flasks infusing something into his armor, Bane style.

Still on the spooky side, I did a bunch of youkai to work with a game I'm developing. Started with those Impact Miniatures Tengu. They still don't have a clearly defined base.

I also finished Kasaro-To to act as an Oni mini-boss for my game. Also Ninja Cola, don't really like him so I was mostly getting done with him.

 One side of Kasaro-To's banner reads Oni Shougun (Demon General)

 The other reads Daisensou (Great War)

Overall it was a pretty complete week. Next up for mansions are the Mi-go, and I have several Rivets in my desk still to finish so look forward to those on the next update.

Monkey Business

Hi all! This week's work was focused on Arcadia Quest. Only 6 heroes missing to finish all the KS heroes! I found a new boardgaming group that is willing to play a full Arcadia Campaign, so I hope to have everything painted until we decide to start.

Starting with Monkey King and Queen. Basic red and gold tones all around for the chinese feeling. I did some little details in blue like the eyes to ensure they popped out. Still deciding if i'm going to make face tatoos on them. Not sure yet...

 Last week necromancers made me realize that purple dyies look great on pale skin. They reinforce the feeling of tiredness and overall unhealthyness of the skin. In Fang i tried to keep it on the eyebags, nose andcheek cavities to reinforce the sickening look.

The SDE Wandering Minstrel was done this week too. I was inspired by Kvothe, the main character from Patrick Rothfuss Kingkiller chronicle, so I went with crimson hair and green tones.

Kvothe, minstrel, swordsman, magician, legend...
An Edema Ruh is always coming and going...
