Mansions of Madness – Ghosts

Well, it doesn’t come much easier than this!

Mansions of Madness -Ghosts

The mould lines were really bad on these two and I didn’t put much effort into removing them either. I’d seen them painted a glowing green and was going to do that, but I asked my wife, ‘What colour would you expect a ghost to be?’ and she came back with White, and so that, to a degree, they are.

“Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?”

These were, literally, a five-minute job. Prime Black and then use the airbrush to apply some selective gradient shading. I think I used three different greys before finishing off with White. I then went back to Black to reinforce the shadows. It was then a case of dotting in the eyes, varnish, and transfer to the base – two more miniature ‘horrors’ out of the way!

  1. Nice and simple, but also very effective! It’s also refreshing to see ghosts painted the “old-fashioned” way instead of the glowing green, which I like but has become a bit of a cliche.

    1. Thanks Matt.
      They were so close to being a glowing green, though. I’d done a bit of a test and asked the wife, ‘Does this look like a ghost?’
      being her usual diplomatic self, ‘Weellll… no, not really!’
      Distraught, I asked, ‘But why not?’
      ‘Ghosts are white!’
      And that is how a non-gamer sees ghosts!😅

  2. The glow really is effective. Nicely done.

  3. Well, I hate to mention it, but when I think about ghosts (which I don’t do very often), I assume they will be semi-transparent. What’s your technique for that…👻?

  4. Funnily enough, I’d have gone with white! These look really good! 🙂 I’m not a fan of transparent bases, but the ones you’ve done here, and the ones on the previous figures, look really good against the game board!

    1. Thanks John.
      I wouldn’t normally go for transparent based myself, but as you say, in this case they really work with game tiles.
