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 🙂

Quick Bones

No, it’s not about skeletons running around…

Bones are a relatively new line of Reaper miniatures, cast of some rather bizarre plastic material which is loved by some and hated by others. Will have to write more about it one day. Anyway, I have few of these minis at home and below you will see two of them painted.

Why “quick”, you ask? Well, life likes to put obstacles on our painting paths and limit our free time we can spend on our hobby. There are different ways to overcome this problem; speed-painting is one of available options. You take a mini, paints and brushes…. and you paint it quickly. Yeah, simple as that. Forget the quality, forget prizes and eternal fame. Just paint and have some fun along.
