Amazing painting, just browsed all pages and you really get the theme and comors from the game in your painting style  :-*

Hope you enjoy the board game, heard some mixed reviews and Dark Souls seem to be better received. I missed this KS myself. At the very least you will have superbly painted horror miniatures for other games!

Thanks guys! In general Bloodborne was received a lot better than Dark Souls. It's a much better balanced game, a game takes about an hour, a campaign (=3 games) can be done in a single game and the storyline is very nicely done.
As a total Bloodborne nut (played the game countless times and played hundreds of hours by now and watched hundreds of lore videos and playthroughs lol) I think this is a fantastic translation from video game to board game. And it's one of my favourite games in my collection :). So yeah, if you like the IP I would definitely get the game.

Thanks! And the ride continues...this time with chests and lamps. So not the most interesting models, but they are key elements of each game and especially the lamps are special for all hunters. In the video game you travel from the real world to the dream world (or nightmares...) using lamps. Your hunter kneels at the lamp and gets "teleported" to the dream (a hub) and from there you can pick different locations. So finding a lamp is always a nice moment. A safe haven in the gothic and cosmic horror.

Lamps

The lamps! Victorian designed lamps raising from the ground...surrounded by small "messengers" (bizarre creatures that originate from the dream in the game). The lamps in the video game are quite odd. They have yellow light when seen up close. But as you move away the light starts to turn blueish/purple, almost like a ghostly aura around the lamps. The Messengers though will be lit with a ghostly pale yellow OSL. So very eerie and weird. But I couldn't see this work on the model, so I kept it to a warm light. A bit too warm for the BB look, but I feel it works this way.

Chests


These took me a lot longer than I thought, because of how they are designed. Small areas with wood and metal means I had to be careful to keep the colours neat and in the right places. I doubted on using different colours for the chests and cloth and in the end decided to keep them all in the colours of the game (for any BB fans saying the ones in the Isz Chalice dungeon look different, I know but I felt they would be out of place in other areas ;)).

Next up will be two more Church Giants, including a converted one :)

And another update, good mojo this week!
This time the third Church Giant...but now with a ball & chain. In the video game this enemy is very dangerous! He has a huge reach, has some crazy attacks and does insane damage. So yeah, he had to be added. So I cut off the stock arms and axe and replaced them with arms from an old Mage Knight model. I then resculpted the cloth around the arms so they would hang correctly around the arms. The ball was fully sculpted with Mag Sculpt in two stages and then I used a sharp tool to cut out the design and some decorations. A Stormcast hammer was cut in pieces for the connector and finally I used some fine jeweller's chain to connect it all together. It went just about how I wanted it, so that is always nice.





And also a group shot of all the finished Church Giants together:



Next up will be the last of the Church Giants!

And Church Giant number 4 done, finishing the mob. This time another stock model, nothing fancy. But still fun to paint!





And the four Church Giants together...a scary sight for Hunters!



After doing all that white cloth I am doing some regular Hunter Mobs again!
