Fear and Flame

He's a Bad Mother... (Shut Your Mouth!)
Currently on the paint-table is Randall "The Saint" St James from Funky Skull Games; being recast here as an eye of fear and flame from the 1e Fiend Folio. Between its covers the Ol' FF has an overabundance of interchangeable robed skeletons. A little creative licence seems warranted.

Besides, the notion of your run-of-the-mill, pseudo-medieval adventurers bumping into a severely anachronistic, undead dungeon-pimp tickles my fancy.

Russ Nicholson rules
The sunglasses are more than mere fashion, as our friend, however re-imagined, needs to conceal his eyes until the last moment.


Color-wise, I'm trying to strike a balance between pimp-gaudy and undead-somber. Accordingly, a lot of grey has been mixed into the purple, pink, and yellow to tone them down. The pink shirt/pocket square combo may (or may not) be changed to something more fuchsia-ish. Time will tell. Leopard-spots are probably mandatory on the hat-band and jacket lining. 


The highlighting needs to be completed followed by a liberal application of washes for the shading. It's been a couple years since I last completed a miniature. This guy needs to be brought to a successful conclusion posthaste.

  4. That's certainly not a colourscheme I expected when I started reading your article :D. Great job thinking outside the box, I look forward to see him fully painted.

    1. Thanks, Wouter. Even undead pimps need flash threads IMO.

  5. The pimp-gaudiness of his suit and the undead-somberness of his skin tone is a great contrast.
