Brimstone horrors painted

This little flame sprites are the tiniest for of horror to come in the Warhammer Quest Silver Tower box. For those unfamiliar with Tzeentch daemons, a pink horror, when slain, breaks down into two blue horrors. A blue horror will likewise break down into a pair of brimstone horrors. Here they are:

These models were photographed on some art my youngest daughter created recently. It seemed to fit the chaotic theme nicely.

    They look great, Dave. The stippling works really well and the bases compliment them perfectly.

    Lovely! I reckon those look like really tricky figures to paint, but you’ve done a great job on them 🙂

      They were a lot of fun to paint, and I think it took about 40 minutes to get from white-undercoated to finished models. I did the bases separately of course.

    One question, in general, about painting. What color do you use for undercoating? Black, white or grey? Or does it change?

      My own rule of thumb is to use black for speed and white for detail. Black can certainly be more forgiving, while I find white gives me more control over the tone of the colours I’m using.

      The effect I’m going for makes a difference too, so flame effects like this I always do over white.

        Thanks. I’m currently debating about buying the Doom board game and the mini’s that come in it are that beige’y plastic’y color. So I’ve been researching youtubers who have painted them and I see so much conflicting advice.

    These look great and I really like the bases. The flames and that blue really compliment each other well!

      Yes I went with cooler colours on the bases to try and not drain the flame effect from the little horrors
