As I mentioned a while ago I had an evening of Heroquest gaming, and wanted to finish up as many Heroquest models as possible before that. Here are a couple of close ups of the chaos warriors and mummies.
In the interest of fast completion, I didn’t use the actual Heroquest chaos warriors (as it would’ve involved cutting off the integral base) but instead painted up four rather similar 90s plastic chaos warriors. Once I have an otherwise full set of Heroquest models painted up, I’ll replace these with the proper models and do them in the signature coloured armour of the late 80s and early 90s.
The mummies are proper Heroquest mummies though. Fastest paintjobs I’ve ever done, I think. They were spray primed Skull White, then base coated in Bleached Bone with the “flesh” parts picked out with Vallejo Cold Grey. I then drybrushed the wrappings with Skulle White. Once dry, the whole model was washed with Devlan Mud and the Cold Grey was highlighted by mixing in Dehneb Stone. They were finished in an evening, while I also did the base coats on the chaos warriors above.
Highly unassuming models, but a great satisfaction to get some stuff painted really quickly! I will try to do a unit of the chaos warriors for my plastic Warhammer project before the end of the year.
My painted total for 2013 is now 25. 10 more weeks, and less than 30 models to go. Will I make it? I highly doubt it, unless I resort to cheap tricks and underhanded tactics. That would be completely foreign to me. Forsooth.
Here’s a photo of the zombies I had done since earlier. That’s all the currently painted stuff. 60 models or so to go for a full set of the base game + two expansions released in Swedish.
