Mansions of Madness – Deep One Hybrids

Like the Hunting Horrors, I didn’t want to waste any time on these and so decided to play around with inks using a limited palette of colours.

Mansions of Madness - Deep One Hybrid

First, they were Zenithal primed – Black, White, Grey – with the airbrush. I then brushed on slightly thinned ink for the pullovers. This allowed the priming to do its job of providing highlights and shadows, and worked really well, especially the Yellow, which can be a difficult colour to paint.

For the trousers and cap I once again used inks, this time thinning them down a little further as I wanted a washed out look. The Blue came out really well and had a ‘denim’ look about it; the Green was okay, maybe a little too thin.

Basecoat and wash for the flesh, dotted in the eyes, and a couple of coats of Darkoath Flesh for the boots and club. Varnish and transfer to the dodgy transparent bases; job done.

Ghosts up next…

  1. A quick but very effective paint scheme, that should look great on the tabletop

    1. Thanks Dave.
      Yeah, they should look great in play. I’m really pleased with the transparent bases, especially with this game, as you get to see the lovely artwork on the tiles.

  2. Not a lot you can do to make painting these exciting. Truthfully, mine look pretty similar to yours though you picked brighter and more interesting colors then I did so I’d give you the edge 😉 These get used a lot in MoM so they’ll certainly see a fair bit of table time in the near future!

      1. Truthfully, I can’t fully remember what those look like anymore. If they are the spirits with chains around their neck then you’re right. I remember putting a lot of thought into how to paint those and never really using them in MoM haha!


  3. Nice work on those chaps! I like the bright colours on the jumpers and the zenithal priming really works!

      Yeah, the zenithal priming worked a treat here; it’s nice when it comes together!
