Helping Hands 3

Third of the monthly posting of the other world Henchman in conjunction with Duke of the Blood Keep and Minis by Finch

This time it's the turn of the poor donkey, carrying an excess of adventurer baggage.

I have tried feathering the body of the donkey with the intention of showing up the texture of the hairs but I am uncertain how effective it is. Similarly with the white underbody, I am wondering if I have gone too far down the legs.



As a bonus I painted the Cerepod (or Grell for the original Fiend Folio), the poor donkey is doomed. The Cerepod is painted in similar colours to the one on the otherworld site which having looked up its entry in the Fiend Folio are not strictly speaking authentic!



In addition ahead of starting on my Drow and Driders I have test painted two old GW Demonettes. Clearly the grey one is the test paint (however stupidly I forgot to note which grey I started with), the pink one was to try out some new paints.



I tried something new with the eyes being bleached bone washed with a blue ink.

Update Q2 2014

OK, somehow I have had a very productive 6 months with 142 figures painted YTD, more than some year.
July has suffered with only four but hopefully August will improve.

Anyway in Q2 I finished:-

1             Modern Zombie
33           Darkest Africa – Mainly Masai
45           DnD creatures include a couple of terrain pieces

79          Total

DnD creatures include most of the otherworld slimes, the giant ants, otherworld dungeon treasures and a few Gothic horror types including yet another vampire.

May look to finish of my Masai (only 20 to go) or my Familiars, Drow and Driders next. Once my enthusiasm returns.
