The Order of Vampire Hunters Kickstarter exclusives

 A big batch of KickStarter exclusives for The Order of Vampire Hunters.

The vampires of this game are along the lines of the vampires from "Blade" rather than the more common Anne Rice-esque sexy modern vampires. I've done these in a very cartoony style and relied on big recognizable color areas rather than going for hyper detail. 

First up is Theyr, a vampire Elder who summons guardian hounds... kind of a shaman. With skin of these being basically dark blue I decided to go with red or yellow as the basic color of clothing... black would have been too low of a contrast for the intended use of the models as board game pieces.
 Evaki is also an Elder with a fear causing scream.  Evaki is much more overtly monstrous than Theyr.

 The blue base being thinned Nightmare Black (Reaper) over a Khaki (Craft) base dry-brushed with White (Craft).  Reds are the Reaper Gorey Red Triad.  The Skin was washed with thinned Strong Tone (Army Painter) and the whole thing washed with thinned Soft Tone (Army Painter).  This process was used throughout today's models.
 Baba Yaga is one of my favorite characters.  She's in a yellow robe woked up from the standard Khaki base with Palomino Gold (Reaper) Highlights with Buckskin Pale (Reaper) and a final wash of Soft Tone (Army Painter) thinned with Glaze Medium (Vallejo).  Like the reds, whites, and blues, the same basic process was used for all the yellows in this batch.  In keeping it cartoony I wanted these to be easily identifiable as belonging to the same "Bad Guy" team for players who encounter this game for the first time.
 Lord Kurivan is the largest model of the batch.  A vampire Lord with an AoE attack and enormous wings.

I did one layer of wings red to avoid a huge blue wall of a model on the board.  The red of his collar is much darker than the others as it was painted over the blue base instead of the Khaki.
 Sneaking in Sister Veridyan for a scale check!
















Grelrok is an Elder with a bit of self healing.  He is powered up by the presence of Upyrs in his area.. which seems kinda odd since I sorta thought he would have been the Elder of the Burrowers...  The variations on blue are varying amounts of Strong Tone being added to the Nightmare Black before being further thinned with Glaze Medium.


 Canoness Veridyan returns for a scale check with the mists.  The mists are a swarm creature done here with Hexwraith Flame (GW) over the Khaki/white base and Splintered Bone (Reaper) for final highlights.  Hexwraith Flame is a quick and effective paint for ghosts and spooks of all sorts... I also use it a lot for power weapon effects and energy source bleed.

 Above the whole day's batch shown as a group... very cartoony!

Henry is a Vampire Hunting Vampire... mechanically he's a hunter and can be turned like any of them... but... he's already a vampire.... anyway... done with a white lab coat instead of a black thing... making him look a little more like he is one of the good guys!
 Lord Kophas... a fast and fearsome vampire Lord.

Big wing/cloak
 A couple more thralls. 
The dress was fun on his one with a 60's inspired mod sunshine pattern... not so busy that its a distraction but breaking up a color block a bit.



Lord Marku really digs being vampire royalty.  His wings are fleshy instead of red to make him stand out from the others as a "Big Deal" while still sporting the red, blue, and yellow colors of his team... albeit in a less unwashed kinda way!


The remainder of the Kickstarter excluseives set is additional hunters.  They'll likely be up next week along with a Raging Heroes executrix squad... unless things go sideways... as they so often do!

Back to the desk!
