Famous Familiars: Daemonette, Beastling and Toad


It was my birthday today. Obviously, you can't go anywhere or do anything... so I decided to spend the day painting outside in the garden. Lady luck was on my side as I completed three whole figures and still managed to cook lunch and dinner for the kids! This daemonette was the first model I worked on. I enjoyed this one as I feel that painting flesh is one of my strengths. I used my usual recipe and the figure just painted itself really. Not the best photograph but it was a quick snap as I was tidying up the garden for dinner. I am surprised that this miniature (being nude) is still for sale at GW as part of this range... with so many of the tamer models no longer available. 


Beastling was next. Now this model was more of a challenge. My first attempt used drybrushing extensively but I wasn't happy with the result. It looked to patchy and dry, if you know what I mean. I used chestnut ink to bring the detail back out and had a second crack at the model. This time I built up the fur with a brush before finishing with a light toned drybrush. This solved the problem and then it was a case of just painting up the hands and feet. I was inspired by gorillas and was quite pleased with the black highlighting on the toes. getting the face right was a bit of a pain, but in the end a bit of black sunk deep into the eye sockets gave the figure the depth I thought it was lacking. 


Finally, Toad. Again, I felt like this figure just painted itself. I used a green/brown mix as a basecoat and just built up from there, adding bleached bone and then white to the mix as I built up the highlights. He was difficult to photograph so this shot will have to do too. I think his claws need a little work later on and I plan to do a few tweaks here and there on some of these models. I used a pale white for his belly and chin to make him more toad like, and highlighted all the warts in yellow. He's a fun little figure and a good experiment in painting green. 


And now they are all together...

I am pleased that my skills seem to be slowly coming back. I hope you agree, dear reader? This range of models is perfect for a project like this as each and everyone is different. I am really enjoying myself and hope to get a couple more completed tomorrow. 

Until then, stay safe.

  8. I TESTED POSITIVE FOR HSV-2 A FEW MONTHS AGO.
    At first, Yes, I was devastated thinking I have an incurable STD for life. After doing hours of research I quickly realized genital herpes is a filthy parasite that just likes to hide in your body. Yes, There’s no “medical cure” but that doesn’t mean your body can’t get rid of it. I literally flush it out of my system with the help of Doctor Sambola A natural herbal medicine which I ordered after doing some research. And now I’m HSV-2 negative, I never believed it until my doctor finally gave me the test results and behold I was HSV-2 free. I’m so glad that I found you, Doctor Sambola Thanks so much for your goodness I’m grateful. You can also get your help from him through his
