Translucent Bones: The Crystal Golem

And a second incredibly fast paint job, done in between the Night Terrors:

The mini is actually translucent! Second image is more backlit.

As for all the translucents, the key is to give the models a wash and an undercoat with Army Painter Anti-Shine clear spray, which gives the paints something to hang on to.

(much like Lord Flashheart and Baldrick-in-a-dress’s beard. Woof Woof!)

For this one I chose to lay off the inks and washes, and gave it a couple of quick drybrushes with light blue and lighter blue.

Evil eyes and teeth in the lightest blue, base and done.


A nice Ice Construct for Frostgrave, or even some sort of summoned elemental demon.
