Raging Heroes Gluttony


Getting back into the swing of things with these two Minis from Raging Heroes.

 They are the Fantasy and Science Fiction versions of the 28mm model.  I was originally thinking that there was very little difference between the two minis but, as a got to work on them, I discovered that there were a few things that I had missed.

The SF version has what looks like some kind of flamer built into the right arm, the torso some gems and a respirator backpack with several hoses. 

I elected to use a sort of impressionist approach to painting these.  Partly because its been a while since I painted anything and partly because I have recently been looking at a lot of Blanche's paintings and minis.  They won't win a Demon but should be a fast and fun way to flesh out an evocative, cinematic force. 

  The weapon arm of the SF version is shared with the fantasy version but its not really a problem since so many system specific weapons are available to replace the cleaver if desired.  For this one I opted to keep the cleaver.

This should serve ably as a Chosen Champion for Death Guard. 



 For Chaos, especially Nurgle,  I really like the fuzziness, limited palettes, and distressed look.  They show well at table top range but are a bit scary up close.

 I'm shamelessly stealing the Gnome's Chaos Warband... The Unwritten... as the basic framework for the Chaos Space Marine Project.  This fellow should be sporting a "Veteran of Corpulous Prime"  Campaign banner on his trophy rack so I'll have to scare one up!


  The Fantasy version.  In a fit of fevered inspiration I'll extrapolate the Unwritten as a Fantasy Battle Warband as well.  Go Gnomie!

I also went with a basic bases so I can rip them off once I settle on  theme for the two forces.

And then there was paint!

After about six months of fail... I've finally located my paints, brushes, and lights!  While excavating a box yesterday... incongruously labeled "Dishes and Crystal" I was amazed to find my long lost painting tools and supplies!

I'd just about given up on locating them and was trying to figure out a way forward.... but now I can proceed!   I had been struggling to justify the expense of restarting the paint and tool collection so that is a huge relief!

This week I'll be setting up a good area to work and moving forward...  The first projects on the Block are from Raging Heroes.  28mm Gluttony in Fantasy and SF versions and the Fantasy Blood Vestals.  I've since acquired the SF versions of the Blood Vestals and the Character Model Skaryaa so they will follow closely on the heels of the fantasy group.

Now if I can just get Blogger to stop defaulting everything to Japanese....

Paint on!
