I have to say, these new plastic horrors are a joy to paint. I wasn't crazy about them when they were first released, but painting them has won me over. I mean, look at this face:
Anyway, I like them more now that I've painted them. They're certainly not perfect and there are things I like about the last edition ones better (I'll cover more on this in a future post).
This unit is actually a mix of old and new horrors.
First here are more pictures of the new plastic horrors.
I really like painting jewels.
While I do like these new models, I own quite a few of the old metal ones. I really didn't want let them go to waste. Since they're so much smaller, I decided to paint them as blue horrors. With each of these blue horrors, I painted one set of arms and half the their bodies pink. I wanted to show that each of these blue horrors used to be half a pink horror. So two of the horrors are pink on their right and two are pink on their left.
Besides the size, one of the differences with the new horrors is that they have a lot of "bling". I sculpted a little be of jewelery on to two of them.
Here is one more group shot.
This is a pretty important milestone. I now have painted as many miniatures as I did last year: 32 (Though I have 37 points in the painting race due to the way it's scored). I was really hoping to beat my total from last year, but that's looking less and less likely.
