The Last of the Werewolves

When Mantic ran their very first kickstarter, they pumped out stretch goal after stretch goal with concept drawings, riding on a wave of success they did not anticipate. Some of these drawings created a lot of buzz, such as this really great werewolf:

and when the minatures arrived and were unveiled there were much of wailing and gnashing of teeth.

I actually do not think they are all that bad, but then again, they are not as good as the concept drawing. I expect the prime reason for this is the miniatures are multi-pose, with ball-socket arms and waist.  And in restic, which the vocal internet has decided to hate.

I have done six of my nine werewolves earilier, time for the final three:

I posed this one to be like in the drawing

The Dwarf having a lie down is an extra from one of the plastic Dwarf sprues from Mantic.

and they are so easy to paint! Woof Woof!

  1. Nice work – I definitely like this approach rather than the bizarre “naked furry man” look that Mantic went with for their studio miniatures!

    Also, I’m not sure why there’s so much hate for restic; I didn’t find it difficult to work with, and it painted up fine…
