Reaper Bones Mythos Monsters

 This is the Mythos Monsters subgroup from the Bones Kickstarter.  For this group I scrubbed the minis and then applied a wash of Vallejo Flat or Medium Flesh instead of primer.  The two painted the medium flesh had better adhesion... basically no issues at all but the flat flesh had some issues.  Of the group the Eldritch Demon was the Flat Flesh test and the Shoggoth and the Faceless Horror used Medium Flesh.
 I really like the Faceless Horror and will include it in my Chaos Spawn assortment for those times when you just gotta have a model!

I used Secret Weapon Flesh wash and then layered Vallejo Flat Flesh for the main body color.  Teeth and eye whites came from P3 (Bone Jack, Menoth White, Menoth White Highlight).  Vallejo Rose Flesh, washed with GW's Ogryn flesh and highlighted with Vallejo Rose and Salmon Rose.  Inside of the multitude of gullets (except for the main gullet) was hit with GW's Leviathan Purple to give some definition and depth to these shallow cut outs.

I liked the skeleton inside the main gullet although I eventually went with a bleached bone look rather than a digestion in progress look so that it could be more easily seen.  Overall this is done with very warm colors so contrast is low.  In retrospect I might want to use some powders on the skeleton to grime it up some and give it that rotten texture.
 Finished with Army Painter Anti Shine Varnish and then Vallejo Gloss Varnish spot painted on the eyes and gums.  I've had a lot of trouble with frosting from this can of Army Painter Anti Shine related to the combination of High local humidity and no air conditioner.  These came out fine though.. Hello Fall!


 Here you see the Eldritch Demon in its Flat Flesh base coat wash.  Adhesion was weak in places, notably under the left forearm and, oddly along the middle of the upper wing surface.

The head, tentacles, suckers, and wing holes were addressed with Vallejo Rose and Salmon Rose and then most of the figure was washed with Secret Weapon Sewer Water.  The Head and Belly have a transition zone that is both the Flesh treatment and the Sewer Water Wash and seems to work.  The Sewer Water washed areas were given a very light dry brush highlights of flat flesh to illuminate things.
 A low glare view of the Shoggoth.  I really need to set up a photo booth for glossy finishes,  The center ball is gloss finished and light makes the Kanji characters difficult to make out but they show well to the naked eye.

Tentacles the Rose/Ogryn Flesh/Rose/Salmon Rose process.  The central orb has uneven Iron Oxide with orange and yellow lettering then a blood red central dot with orange lettering.  Its all pretty legible and I like the semi submerged look of the characters on the yellow part of the orb.  Eyes for all these Demons are blue because Demons with blue eyes are creepy!
Finally a size comparison.  The central figure is a GW Teminator from the Contagion Project.
