'Myth' from SeanS - 'Snow for the Snowlord!'


Another figure on clearance from FRP Games, this little guy called out to me for the myth round.

I mean what could be better than a child eating Christmas Devil? You can read all about him on wikipedia here. And the website Krampus.com


I kept him simple and decided to go with a light brown fur with dark hooves and antlers. I had briefly thought of trying to do the bugbear flesh color on him, but honestly thought the human flesh color made him creepier. I'm not sure if it shows, but I went with the zombie eye of slate green on top of grey. This casting seems to have a barrel full of coal, instead of children.

For me the toughest part to paint was the tail, it's big and flat and I wasn't exactly sure how to highlight it.

You'll also see my first ever use of snow flock on the base. I chose to make wetter snow by mixing it with PVA and water. Hopefully it will pass muster.

I based him on a 25mm square base so I could use him as a Beastman for Oldhammer. His battle cry will be “SNOW FOR THE SNOWLORD!”


Thanks for looking.

  4. I just noticed that in the poll it says 'Snot for the Snowlord', too funny but also somehow appropriate.

    1. Yes Michael, I see you've been over to my blog but I'll correct my omission from the post. It is a Reaper figure. I bought it from FRP games.
