That's a great set of colours. All this lovecraftian nonsense really puts me in mind to get my Hellboy stuff started.

I'm glad you're liking my delve into board game madness inmygravenimage. I didn't even know Hellboy had miniatures.

Unfortunately for me school starts tomorrow, but I might be able to get one last batch finished before things start ramping up. For now here are my four Hastur Disciples which makes the grand total of 28 models done over my break. They appear like I forgot to do the eyes, but that's because the art has them with black eyes just like the Deep Ones. I did however go back and highlight the bump stocks and add a little bit of Agrax Earthshade in parts.

I just have a tiny update, and it will likely be the last until the summer now that I see my current workload.

Although I was making good progress on Death May Die, I'll have a hard time not getting sidetracked by my newest haul, an almost complete set of The Order of Vampire Hunters by Dark Gate Games.
That's another 136 miniatures to add to the pile!
I've included a shot of some of the playable characters as well as my favorite model of the bunch, Gugadeth and the Beast, but there are too many to get photos of them all.

Unfortunately there was a broken off gun and more importantly a broken wing on my 2nd favorite Elder Vampire, but hopefully they can be fixed. I got a pretty good price on it so I guess I can't complain.

It's the starting of summer again, only year of my college program left to go, so it's time to get painting once more.
With the current state of the world the only games I'll actually get to play will be solo, but I'm starting with my copy of The Order of Vampire Hunters as predicted.
I hope everyone out there is staying safe.

I actually finished 10 of the basic enemies already in addition to whatever these are called, but the pictures I took of them were more than a little out of focus, so I'm not sure they're worth posting.

I'm starting to hit a good rhythm, whether or not I can keep it up remains to be seen.
Here is my finished Gugadeth and the Beast. It's unfortunate that one of his wings is pretty badly warped and his base is all wonky, I may try and use putty to fill in the bottom, but for now he is somewhat stable.
I might work on the Nyx character next since she has similar wings, thankfully straight in her case, or I may switch gears and start my set of Gotham City Chronicles. You should see how badly Batman's base is warped, much worse than this guy. He can't even stand at all, the drunkard, so that one will have to be replaced entirely .

Here is my first model from Gotham City Chronicles, Killer Croc. He is my favorite Batman villain so it's a shame he is only used in a single scenario despite coming in two different sculpts.

This was a quick one, but he looks pretty good in person. Maybe he could use a Deathclaw Brown highlight just around his collar and a bit of pink on the tongue.

Nice to hear from you again inmygravenimage, I'm glad you like this version of him too.
Croc is the best, I have a giant poster of him overlooking me right now.
I don't normally reply without something new to show off, but I had to let you know that thanks to you reminding me about BMG I had to make my first purchase from knight models.

Stupid me, I failed to realize that they offer free shipping if the order is large enough so I ended up making two orders. The new Poison Ivy on her plant throne is what caught my eye, but to reach the threshold I added several others including the Rebirth version of Croc. It might seem a bit excessive to have 4 different versions of him, but I was lured in by the low stock warning.

Going back to the Order of Vampire Hunters for the moment, here is the next batch. I believe these ones are called burrowers seeing as how one leg is still emerging from the ground. There is still a whole lot left just in the core box alone, but I'm starting to make headway.

Switching back and forth between the two games, here is the biggest model of the whole Batman set, Clayface.

I'm glad you like him, there's still a huge amount of Batman to get to. I took your advice about lightening up the block a bit, even though I had previously darkened it down, but I'll refrain from re-posting after such a small improvement.

I already received my Poison Ivy and Mad Hatter. I expected the former to be bigger, but the latter is freakin minuscule. I was going to work on them only to find out my 3 brand new and unopened bottles of super glue had completely dried solid which is ridiculous. I have more ordered, Bob Smith brand this time, but I guess I'll have to prioritize a few of the other hundreds I have left to do for the time being.

Still oscillating and never quite settling on one thing here is my first completed playable character with which to hunt down those vampires, except he needs one slight correction to his right hand. He has a weird name, but I prefer to just call him by his nickname, Rat. I'm inching closer to being able to actually play a game, even though the complexity of the rules leaves a bit to be desired from what I can surmise.

This batch are just thralls rather than full fledged vampires, though I still have the female versions to do. I feel like I should have gone with a more noticeable green for the eyes, but I don't really want to redo them.
It's my first test of Creature Caster's line of paints, and I was hoping this pale green would allow me to replace my Skarsnik green as it's the most prone to drying up on since it tends to be the most time consuming color. Unfortunately it seems to be closer to Nurgling green than Skarsnik.

It looks like I'll still be waiting on my glue for another week , but at least my remaining add-ons from the Vampire Hunters kickstarter arrived today. Now I have almost everything, and I'll be starting Brith soon which is a slightly bulkier Elder Vampire.

Thanks for the feedback. It seems like you're my only fan lately, but ya the models for Vampire Hunters are pretty decent for such a small company.

This next one isn't Brith, although he is started. According to the website, his name is Grelrok.

That's how it feels sometimes on here though, it comes and goes. I like this guy but I'd bring up the highlights on the face a bit more so it doesn't get lost in the grey?

There's only so many ways to say I appreciate the support, but I always do. One is much better than none.

Here is the promised elder vampire, Brith. This is actually only his his first form, but it's enough for now. Once he "dies" he comes back with an exploded stomach revealing more tendrils to grab his prey.

My super glue is supposedly arriving later today so even though I have another playable character from Vampire Hunters started I may end up moving on to Poison Ivy's giant plant, Frank.

Nasty lol. I'd still consider hitting the face with a bit of a highlight.
Much as I love Frank and new ivy I've really scaled back my km purchases. I have huge amounts of 1st/2nd but DCU is more my jam. 3rd is a far better game, granted, and I still have all the Joker and Bane stuff. I'm just not prepared to go nuts for it.

It has to be a pretty big model for me to bother making the face a different color than the body. In any case there are well over 100 minis in this game alone, with more games on the way, so there are bound to be some minor concessions in order to ever have a finished product.

Which game is better rules-wise is irrelevant to me since I don’t play skirmish games anymore, but personally Batman is the only DC property I’m interested in. I’m a bit picky when it comes to superheroes.
I noticed you also got the Heath Ledger set. I did as well, although I don’t know when I’ll get to him.
I won't be purchasing any more Knight models though. I just got hit with a bogus customs charge like a month after they had already arrived, but apparently my credit is at stake if I don't pay.

This next one turned out pretty well. Meet Frank, the aforementioned pet of Poison Ivy. I'd also like to start Croc, and maybe even Poison Ivy herself soon, but I'll probably be distracted by the fact that my copy of the Tainted Grail game just came today.

It's my first big narrative board game to arrive, and since I didn't want the optional set of enemy models there isn't quite as daunting a number of minis.
I had to work out a deal with a nice fellow near me who already pledged as I had missed the kickstarter campaign.

Here is the beginnings of my Tainted Grail models.
The game is set in Arthurian times in a land that is being enveloped by an unnatural darkness called the Wyrdness. This guy is one of the 3 Menhir which somehow ward off the evil provided they are given the proper offerings.

I'll include a model for scale with the next one since they're pretty sizable. I've seen some people who are more skilled at painting reflected light go to town on the areas around the little candles, but mine is a bit more on the humble side in that area.
I did include a bit of mini autumn leaves though which I had been waiting for an appropriate place to bust out.

So now I just have two more Menhir, 5 playable characters, and the final boss to do, but I am somewhat tempted to try and add in a touch of green for that mossy look. I used to have a can of very fine flock, but it seems I've misplaced it. I also have some coarser foliage, but I felt that would conflict with the autumn leaves.

Thanks a whole bunch guys. If he looks spooky then I know I have done my job. Glad to have you as a new visitor, Gwyn chan 'r Gwyll. I'm pleased that you like my candle glow inmygravenimage, since I thought it might be a bit lacking.

I wish I had more leaves so I could put them on everything I have, but they are long since no longer being sold. I heard they were somehow made from actual plant material, but don't quote me.

Here is Menhir number two, although there are still a couple spots I should touch up. Now you can see from the first shot just how big these statues are.
