Oko meduzy | The eye of medusa

Posted on March 7th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Mój projekt Nocnych Strachów powolnym truchcikiem zmierza do niemal końca figurek z tej serii w moich zapasach, zostało mi jeszcze tylko parę… Ale to oznacza, zapewne, że w moim tempie malowania to roboty do końca roku;)
Dziś meduza – jedna z ciekawszych, jak dla mnie, choć rzeźbiarsko bardzo prostych miniaturek Night Horrors, pojawiła się po raz pierwszy w 86. numerze White Dwarfa z listopada 1986 r. (rany, połowa mojego liceum)…  Stwór to dość klasycznie przedstawiona paskuda z wijącymi się wężowymi “włosami”, której spojrzenia obraca w kamień. Z pewnością nadaje się do jakiegoś scenariusza bitewnego, gdzie jest mutantem Chaosu… I do Frostgrave, gdzie można ją wykorzystać w rozmaity sposób.

Początkowo chciałem pomalować ją w kolorach brudnego brązu, stwierdziłem jednak, że za bardzo będzie to zlewać się z już pomalowaną, oliwkowozieloną, “gadzią” skórą – stąd również brudny ciemnoniebieski. Mam nadzieję, że dzięki temu bardziej wyraziste są jej zabójcze oczy…
My project of painting Night Horrors range is slowly gaining momentum – I think that I will be able to paint the rest of miniatures in my possession till the end of this year;)

Today time for medusa – one of the more interesting but still very simple sculptwise miniatures from this range, shown for the first time in 86 issue of White Dwarf from November 1986 (geez, my high school years). This is rather classical take of this monster with snakelike “hairs’, and stone-turning gaze. Certainly it (she?) will be great centrepiece for some oldschool scenario, where it may be described as Chaos mutant… And it certainly may be used in some Frostgrave games, be it as a independent monster or some dangerous npc wizard.

Initially I wanted to paint her robe dirty brown, but after painting her skin in olive green tones, I decided against it, as brown would be too close in tone to her skin – hence this dark blue robe. I hope that her deadly eyes are more visible thanks to this choice of colors.

Pan minister z piekła rodem | Mr. Minister born in hell

Posted on March 2nd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Skąd taki tytuł? Ano stąd, że malując tę figurkę, przy jej twarzy nie mogłem się oprzeć wrażeniu, że niezmiernie, ale to naprawdę niezmiernie przypomina mi wykrzywioną grymasem twarz pewnego znanego ministra, konsekwentnie realizującego program psucia wszystkiego co się da, pod płaszczykiem naprawy “od podstaw”. Ale dość polityki, w końcu to blog o figurkach…
Dzisiejsza miniaturka to jeszcze jeden przedstawicieli serii Night Horrors, wydana w 1986 r. figurka o swojskiej nazwie Diabeł. I cóż – trudno ukryć – przedstawia stereotypowego diabła, z rogami, widłami i ogonem. Jedynie zamiast kopyt ma dziwne ptasiogadzie szpony. Prościutka, fajna w malowaniu, w sam raz jakiś mniejszy demon do Frostgrave czy innej podobnej gry – albo do rolpleja.

Przypomnę tylko, że na blogu pokazywałem już podobnego mieszkańca ciepłych aczkolwiek nieprzyjaznych podziemi – diaboła.

Why such title of the note? Well, painting this miniature I was more and more aware of the striking resemlance of this figure’s face to the face of certain infamous Polish minister, consequently realising his obsessed agende of destroying everything under his control and calling it “rebuilding”. Well, enough of this politics, this is a miniatures related blog after all…

Today’s miniature is one more example of the figure from C18 Night Horrors range, originally released in 1986 and featured in November issue of White Dwarf. Well, this is your stereotypical devil – horns, fork and tail. There are some birdlike claws instead of hooves though. Very simple model, pleasant to paint, excellent minor demon for Frostgrave or other, similar game – or a minor demon for fantasy role-playing game.

I will add that I already shown here on the blog another denizen of hot and unpleasant underworld – a Pit Fiend.
