Three heads are better than one!

Some time ago I painted two headed hound from Mierce Miniatures. Now It’s time for three headed hydra – Khallas, Hydrakh of Ydron – also from Mierce Miniatures. This is really fine detailed miniature sculpted by talented Roberto Chaudon. It is based on 80mm round base, so the monster is neither too small nor to large.
Applying green base paint and basic highlighting with airbrush really helped to speed up the painting process. Even if most of the paintjob was done with a brush – enhancing shadows and highlights as well as painting details. For the base I used Vallejo Still Water as I cannot imagine hydra without water 🙂

I did not see this mini painted anywhere, but I guess this is good. This way I could use my imagination and creativity to paint her just as I imagined without copying other painter’s idea. Her – because this creature definitely looks like a female to me 🙂 Maybe because of long neck and specific head(s) position…. I just got that impression. And what do you think?

Blood-Maw

Recently I did not paint anything from Mierce Miniatures but this is about to change. Here comes Blood-Maw, Vore – a giant carnivore beast. With it’s powerful jaws it can devour any warrior in whole! Just look at it’s size – it is mounted on 100mm base.

Can a single, even the most courageous warrior stand against such beast?

Hmm, now the chances are equal as Blood-Maw meets Druc, Meat Hulk:

Equal because none of these can see his opponent 🙂

Ckaarakk, Tarvax Untain

Here is big and armored bull – Ckaarakk (he has strange name also). I assembled him about 3 years ago, but just didn’t have mood to paint him. Maybe I was a little discouraged by a lot of armor to be painted. Anyway – I finished him and I am glad I did that 🙂






Here is Ckaarakk accompanied by my other miniatures from Formoraic fraction of Darklands world. You can see that he is quite big, even for minotaur.
