Wolf's Bane, part 2

This is the second of the four new Wereshewolves from Raging Heroes.  All of them were quite amazing to paint, allowing me to try all kinds of interesting new color combinations.

The first wolf that I posted was in mostly cooler colors, as if to represent the figure walking around in moonlight.  As you know, I like to try new things all the time, so warm colors carry the day for this wereshewolf.

The dramatic posing means that I can do some very fun basing as well.  Bark and branch is a perfect method for matching the bits of rock that come attached to most of the set, and telling a story with the base.

Of course, the next wereshewolf is painted in yet another color scheme, so stay tuned!!

A Ghost of the Past

Here's one more Army of the Dead!

It's very fun to put the finishing touches on some of these figures, which have been sitting in a box nearly 80% painted for a very long time.

Just like the first couple of figures, I tried to vary the glowing colors.  Some sections are more greenish, but others tinted more blue.

I also added the semi-opaque glaze of the rusty brown shade, which was mixed with Vallejo flesh wash to get it down into all the crevices.

For an eternally cursed army, they are a lot of fun!
