Agis Hellboy minis
« on: May 11, 2019, 11:57:08 AM »
New project - Hellboy! Mantics Kickstarter arrived, time to paint some frogs. Mantic Boardgame KS brought us a lot of very nice Hellboy minis.
The pic below shows the Mantic frog minis and Hellboy from the Monolith metal range.



The Frog Monster from “Seed of Destruction”, one of my all time favourite Hellboy boss enemies. :)


The whole Frog Monster group. I am very happy with these minis. Some mold lines had to be removed, and some bases are warped, otherwise all fine.
Since these minis are just the enemy cannon fodder for the BPRD, I used some serious speed painting, just bases colours and washes plus one or two dry brushes.
After that some glossy varnish for the frog skin and - done!

The bases are ultra simple dark grey, similar to Mignolas simplistic paint style. ;) Only the base of the Frog monster got some extra care.

as always, more on my site -> http://www.adpublishing.de/html/hellboy.html
cheers and keep on gaming, Agis - http://www.adpublishing.de

Brilliant! I still haven’t found time to paint mine.

You are a remorseless painting machine, Agis. I do admire and envy that! o_o lol

Fantastic work mate! I'm really disappointed I didn't have the funds to get on this when it launched.

Thanks again for the nice comments folks!

The tentacles of Sadu Hem from “Seed of Destruction” and more frogs.



The Kickstarter provides some nice 3D game counter that are normally simple card board marker. The Right Hand of Doom token, the Information Gathered and the Insight marker. Some people complained that these are not really standing out, IMO they are great and even better when given a VERY simple paintjob:

The secret formula is this:
- Prime the minis black,
- then gold (GWs Retributor Gold is just fine),
- apply the gold from above that leaves some darker spots below and creates already some depth.
- Then give all a brown wash (I used GW Agrax Earthshade).
- Glossy clear varnish - done! You can see the effect on the Insight marker.

For the real 3D marker I applied a greenish pigment and sealed it with MIG pigment fixer before the varnish. Same technique was used on the 3D busts:

Neat enough for me... ;)

I started work on the heroes:

Elizabeth "Liz" Sherman is a pyrokinetic human woman, and a field agent of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. At age 11, she destroyed an entire city block, killing thirty-two people—including her parents and younger brother. Since then, she has been a ward of the Bureau, fighting evil forces and learning to live with her abilities.

A great mini, I regretted not ordering the resin mini! Normally I do not love sculpted effects like flames or smoke, but the flaming hand of Liz is very nice "touch".
