Wolf pack

Recently I painted one big wolf, now it’s time for 3 smaller ones. These are from RedBox Games. The metal miniatures had really prominent fur sculpture, so painting them was quite fast. After priming with light grey I applied black wash and then drybrushed with base color. After that I highlighted with precise brush individual strands of fur with progressively lighter grays (up to almost white). I wanted to paint really evil wolves, so I couldn’t resist to paint their eyes in bright red. To break the monotonous grey, I painted their noses and ears in shades of violet. The bases are made from pieces of cork with some static grass and various trash to simulate forest ground. Project “One wolf per one evening” came to an end 🙂

Creoda, a really big wolf!

I finished Creoda, Guthwulf – figure from Mierce Miniatures. This mini was wonderfully sculpted by Allan Carrasco based on this concept art from talented Stefan Kopinski:

The figure had fur texture, but apart from his neck and tail it was too subtle to use drybrush. I preshaded it with airbrush and then I randomly applied thin lines of lighter color, more or less corresponding with direction of sculpted hair. I wasn’t too precise, as I didn’t want to spend years painting every single hair. The finished effect is just fine for gaming miniature.

Here is how it looks with other finished miniatures from Anglecynn fraction in world of Darklands:

Vikings Jarl

Every vikings warband needs a Jarl to lead them into victory. Here is one that I painted recently. It’s made by Hasslefree Miniatures and is called Ulfred. It’s my first miniature from this company and I was pleasantly surprised with quality of the cast and sharp details. I painted him in rather bright colors, just as my other vikings.

Of course the fact that he looks similar to Ragnar Lothbrok from Vikings TV series is just a coincidence 🙂
