Meet the Ghouls!

Hello,

finally another SA related post!

I've bought a pack of Heresy ghouls at Salute earlier this year. After I've checked list back at home, I've settled for a single pack (but I had the dying wish to have them all :P)...I didn't really pick around too much, just made sure it is not the one with mother and a baby. Not that I'm particularly bothered by those two, its just that this pack is more suitable. I've painted them about a month ago (just before I started working on humvees), but I have saved the post until after that project.

Now, I got a bit of a love-hate relationship with this pack. The sculpts are great. Could be a bit more canine around the faces, but overall great ghouls. Perhaps too..hm...too "violent" looking for my "cartoonish" preferences in SA (GW would be perfect :P), but very, very nicely defined and all. They were a pain to put together (not sure if that is only in my case), but painting them was true joy. I went for true-to-Lovecraft blackish skin, made some glowing eyes and the rest is nothing special. I had great joy using Tamiya clear red again...in abundance. It has to be the smell!



Not much else to say about them...one of them (I figured the one with a sickle) would be Ghoul King if needed in games.


Thanks for looking,

Mathyoo

    1. Thanks. And yup, while I rarely put much thought in miniatures, those really seem like they got some kind of backstory...really are nice sculpts.

    1. Thanks Dean! They are kinda "heroic" 28mm, but the poor explorer isn't really standing upright, either.

    1. Nah, mr. explorer here has seen every monster so far. And if what doesn't kill you really makes you stronger, he can start wearing white pants without the fear of them turning brown! :D

      Thank you :)
