Miniature Monday – Hordlings
Sometimes, the denizens of Hell or the Abyss are horrible. Sometimes they are… cute?
Preface: Yay! Miniature Monday on a Monday! Well 😀
Since we have two Boes II Core Sets, but only one Set of Add-Ons, we had just three of the Hordlings to paint and split them between the two of us.
Dirk got one he painted in a classic impish way:
I love the lava base, and the red color scheme fits perfectly for a beastie from hell! He also did some light effects, on the base (a bit visible on the legs of the creature) and on the eyes – which looks way better in person, but perhaps you get at least an idea.
I had the tentacled one and made it, of course, a minion of Cthulhu:
While painting I used wetblending for blueish hands and feet towards a green body, with a hint of yellow on the tentacles. It is sitting on ocean’s floor, waiting for its master to rise, so I could use tiny and tiniest real shells that Dirk brought home from work. I love their fragile structures a lot!
The third one was also painted by me (Antonia) in a more funny way, as a… minion!
As you might remember the small hench”men” from the despicable me-movies, I chose a one-eyed one, gave it a bright yellow color and a blue jeans :-p. And, like they had in one of the short films: Banana!
Okay, sillyness aside: The hordlings are, despite small or even tiny, very detailed and were quite fun to paint, also quick because they are so small 😉

highly detailed mini with a rather small face, many structures and equipment to paint – also great for friends of scales or light effects
