Spookytoberfest v 5.0, The Final Chapter

Written by  on November 3, 2015

Wow, there were a lot of minis to paint! Two contests, six commissions, three for Spookytoberfest. I got a little overwhelmed and fell behind on everything else.

So, here is a montage… a training montage!

Darkrasp in all of his evil glory.

The Crypt Wraith in all of his re-painted glory. He was also my first use of the <washes>

I made.

Judas Bloodspire didn’t get finished. I just didn’t feel motivated when looking at him. No colors popped out at me.


So, see everyone next October!

Spookytoberfest2015 Question of the Week: What is your favorite dish with pumpkin as one of its main ingredients?

Answer: None, pumpkin is gross. Vile. I actually used to like pumpkin chocolate chip cookies that my mom made but I was like 8 years old then.

Spookytoberfest, Part 4

Written by  on October 15, 2015

I have a feeling I’m finished with Darkrasp minus some basing. Or I might apply some more washes to him. I’m not terribly happy with him but I’m not disappointed really either.

The Crypt Wraith is coming along. I did some washes last night. I need to finish painting his cloak and the front of his shield. And check out that snazzy freehand on the shield! Dang, there is a lot of white cloak… that might warrant some freehand on the cloak.

Oh, Judas Bloodspire… I’m just not sure what I want to do with you.

So, that is where I’m at. Still two weeks to go so I should be fine even with my other projects.

Spookytoberfest2015 Question of the Week: “Congratulations! You’ve been chosen by lottery to be the new President/Prime Minister/King/Queen/Big Cheese of your country, but in a hilarious turn of events, your second in command has been implicated as the head of a group of criminals who produce shoddy knock offs of expensive miniatures, and he goes to jail. Replacing him is a monster/villain/entity from literature, film, or television.” Who is it, and how will s/he help you get your country back on track? If there are more than one iterations of your character, for example The Terminator, choose which version you’re going with!

Answer: Our Dark Lord, Cthulhu, of course! He will work tirelessly to drive everyone insane so that we won’t even know the country is off the tracks.

Spookytoberfest the III

Written by  on October 11, 2015

I’m juggling painting five different miniatures for various projects but I did get to put some washes on Darkrasp the other day. Then I highlighted him back up to smooth that out.

I started laying down basecoats on Judas Bloodspire. That hasn’t went too far…

I also basecoated the Crypt Wraith. I’m actually using various colors this time rather than going for black/grey with spooky green eyes and such. I’m actually going to paint him sort of like a Templar… and maybe some freehand on the shield. We will see.

I’m still debating on his cloak’s color… white or red? Freehand on the back?

Spookytoberfest 2015

Written by  on October 1, 2015

This year I was on the ball and decided to join Warboss Tae’s Spookytoberfest! I’ve followed the previous ones but didn’t have the chance to join them. The general idea is to paint a spooky miniature for October.

Here are the three miniatures I’m going to try to finish for October. Left to right we have 77151 Darkrasp, Evil Priest, inspired by Mocha Minis’ blog; 77160 Judas Bloodspire, Vampire; and 2281 Crypt Wraith, who is being repainted. All of them are Reaper miniatures. The first two are from their Bones line and the last one is metal.


Today, I’m going to wash all of them, clean up any mold lines, and prime them.

Spookytoberfest2015 Question of the Week: What movie scared you more than any other when you were growing up (or even now!)? If you want to be more specific, describe the scenes that terrified you the most and how they made you feel!

Answer: The Twilight Zone: Nightmare at 20,000 Feet:


I watched this when I was probably 7 or 8 years old. The scene where William Shatner moves the curtain covering the window and the gremlin is right there looking at him had me running out of the house…


Or was it William Shatner’s acting. *cue Twilight Zone music*
