“This sort of poison can even kill a Mountain….”

After quite a long time of absence (hell real life needs some dedication aswell doesn`t it ;)) I thought I pop in and post not just one but two of my latest painting projects in one fell swoop. You can see my Kharibdyss further below but this bit features my new Dreadlord on Manticore. As I am a huge fan of the Raging Heroes one (and erm less of a fan of the one from GW) I had to get and paint it.

For the color palette I thought using mostly earthen tones and brownish yellows like you see on mountain lions because that Manticore just screams “viscious Mountain Lion” to me. The wings I used my Airbrush for but everything else is hand painted. As much as I like the Manticore itself the less I like the original rider. The head and especially sword just don`t do it for me. Thats why I replaced both with bitz from my collection (both head and sword are from the new DE chariot kit, the shield is from the CoK kit). I hope you like it and with that I wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR! 😀

Between Skylla and K(c)hari(y)bdy(i)ss

Well my Kharibdyss is still not fully done yet, but what the heck I have to post the pictures at some point (I can`t wait for months on end ;)). Sadly the water effect hasn`t properly dried  yet because I guess I put too much of it on the base at once. Still the rest of the model is done and that little water effect still missing won`t make that much of a difference anyway ;).

For “amusement sake” I put a floating HE body in the water infront of the Kharidbyss. I guess he must have tried to beat her in a swimming contest and failed. Those crazy High Elves 😉
