Monday Miniatures: Snake Demon
Despite the fact that there are literally hundreds of small minis that came with this particular kickstarter, project there are a couple of minis that stand out. One of them is this week’s model. All of the snake models are particularly detailed, but scales aside, this model still qualifies as intricate. Everywhere you look are little details of jewelry and quirks of design.
If you really scrutinize the picture to the left you will see the skull just peaking out from beneath her tail for instance. If you peak below the fold though, you will see entirely different details.
Alas, I saw no projects to call out this week, so let’s go straight to the minis.
Though I made good progress this week, life proved too hectic for me to complete this particular paint job on time. I want to do a better job on the highlights, the hilts, and some color variation in the scales before I call it good. I chose the same color scheme as an earlier snake mini (pictured in the background) to what I think at least, is a good effect.
Magnus went with an altogether cleaner color scheme that would best be described as gilded. I think he did an especially good job on the eyes this week.
Arjen says they are not finished, but so far this mini looks outstanding. It is definitely calling back to the demon roots of this model. Great work Arjen!
Last we have Antonia’s mini. Per her stated goal, I think she has done an outstanding job of nailing Kali. The skulls and the tropical base are a nice tough, but even without that, the color scheme would have called up the image to me. The foliage looks great Antonia, but wherever did you get such detailed little skulls to make her necklace with?

Undead Horde – a consistent theme I’ve seen in recent posts is just how long these mini’s are taking people to paint. This week let’s take a crack at all the skeletons we have stacked up. Base coat. Shade. Dry brush. Highlight. Try to get your technique down to less than half an hour a mini and see if you can knock out at least three of these little guys (we were shipped six.)
Terrain – We’ve been showing off lots of miniatures these last few months, but you need some terrain too play with them. Show us all what you’re working on.
Ape-X – one of the last big models left in the Vampire package.
