LL Boxed Set 2

Just starting to chip away at the Otherworld’s Labyrinth Lord Level 2 Boxed Set; nothing fancy here, mostly dry brushing.  The Ghoul is actually painted to represent an “Encephalon Gorger” from Necromancer Games The Tome of Horrors II. 

I have to order some gloss varnish to coat the green slime to give it a wet, slimy appearance. The pot I had gummed up significantly and I didn’t know how to get it back to the right consistency.  If anyone knows another technique for the slimy look or how to get the right flow on gummed gloss varnish, please post.

Complete Town Guards and another Schubert painted model

The people at IWM sent me the town guard that was absent in my original order (January 23rd post)  The shades are not exactly right as they were painted at different times mixing colors “on the fly” but you probably wouldn’t notice the slight variation if I placed them down on the gaming board for a potential encounter. 

The second miniature is Elladan Swiftbrook (Dark Heaven: 2543).  I again followed Derek Schubert’s guide from “The Craft” article at the Reaper website (  Over all, the guide was spot on.  However, I could not get the leaves on the sections of leather armor to look like the image following the guide.  I don’t know if it was too vague or I just couldn’t get it.  Either way, I good with the result: if I would have done it without following a guide trying to get a similar result I’d probably be extremely happy with how it turned out. But since I was following a blue print I'm only “so so” with the result.

The answer to "recognize this?":

Casket Works number 23 cover art by Wayne Reynolds!  Great picture.  Not sure exactly what they are fighting though or I would've tried to paint the opponent: some outsider.
