Off the Bones 4 Fan Favorites expansion, the Hell Hounds. Woof woof.
Three surprisingly cute massive hellish hot dogs, with lavacracks and all. And they have spiked collars with a massive ring on the top.
And very obviously male. Those are the Dogs’ Bollocks!
Again, these do look better IRL than in the blown up pictures. Much better, to my eyes at least.
How to paint lava-look minis:
Start with a stark white basecoat. Drybrush the following colours starting with heavy pressure to lighter pressure with the darker colours:
Bright yellow, golden yellow, orange or peachy pink, dark red or wine red, dark brown, dark grey/black, pure black.
Use a big, soft brush (such as a make-up brush) and make sure to wipe a lot of the paint off the bristles (more than you think!) and build the colours up gradually to avoid streaking.
Be aware that when painting light to dark, they will look wierd and as failures almost up to the very last coast. Keep with it!
I did the bases with black flock, as they have burned everything to a crisp.
I put them on 50mm bases. These are sculpted by Chris Lewis and made in Bones Black PVC.
They are currently available from reapermini.com
These minis were finished on December 4th, 2020.
