Two more miniatures from the Horrific Journeys expansion. I wasn’t sure what colour scheme to go for with these, as the token that goes with them wasn’t very clear and, well, it isn’t like you stumble across Shamblers very often on your travels, so who knows what one’s supposed to look like!
In the end I aimed for a grey-green, or maybe a greeny grey!
These were real easy and I followed similar steps to the Hunting Deep Ones, in that I primed ’em white and coated with Darkoath Flesh Contrast paint. Using the airbrush, this was glazed over with Vallejo’s Heavy Grey, which is a green based grey.
A drybrush of Dead Flesh, Bonewhite, and finally Elfic Flesh finished the job. I added some colour with the loincloth and called it a day.
As you can see, I had a play around with the lighting for these images. I’d normally set up my bigger ‘Daylight’ lamps, but I was in a hurry here and so just used my little photo booth’s built in LED, which is at the top, and a powerful LED Lamp to light the front. Lit from above gives a grittier, starker feel to the images, whilst the one lit from the above and the front is softer, but gives a truer reflection of the colours. I’ll experiment more when I have more time. Though I do prefer my proper lamps they can be a pain to set up and get just right, as they’re a little on the large side for something so small. They do give better, all-round images, but sometimes it’s nice to do something different!
I’m just preparing the Warlocks, Thralls, and Deep Ones, so one of those will be up next from Mansions of Madness.
