Howling to the Moon

Hello everyone,

Here's another progress update on my Rangers of Shadow Deep project.
With my children having a public holiday this week I had less time to paint and decided to do something real quick. This is easily achieved when using a limited palette of colours and while I don't plan to use most of the models from the get-go, I am going to use them in the long run.
Turns out I was even able to finish these in a shorter amount of time than I expected, so I also did a quicky on an undead ogre.

Some zombie wolves and a werewolf; I still need to paint three more of these wolves.

While I'm going to use this beast as a werewolf, he doesn't really look like one, which is why I decided on a different colourscheme. In my eyes he looks more like 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'.

A German Shepherd companion model for the good guys.

I'm not sure, but I think this is an alien dog model from Alternative Armies.

This is actually an 28mm Norse dwarf from Bad Squiddo Games, but given her size she's perfect as a large model for 15mm too. The only thing I did was make her look more skeletal. I hope they're doing more Norse dwarves in the future as I will be needing at least one more ogre

That's it for these week, thank you for visiting!

    1. I agree, Khurasan makes some of the best models in this scale. Unfortunately it's become very expensive to order from them due to the high shipping cost.
      Thank you for the comment my friend.

  2. Wow, I really, really like these doggies! The werewolf can be conveniently used as a generic furry beast given the chance, so I think it really plasy a role!

    1. Thank you for the comment Suber.
      I indeed have plans to use him in a Pulp Investigators (Sherlock Holmes perhaps?) campaign in the future.
      The zombie wolves might also see some game time as Dire Wolves, with the black werewolf as a Doomwolf, if I ever get to playing 15mm Age of Sigmar skirmish.

  3. This is really good work. I like the idea of this game and have seen it played on YouTube a few times, seems like it would be fun.

    1. Thank you very much Fred!
      I think it's a game with a lot of potential. The fact you can play it both solo and cooperative was the turnover op for me and there are many other points which make the game worthwhile in my opinion.
      What I don't like are some small things like the randomness of a d20.

  4. Each and every one the pieces shown above look like they were fun to paint ... so much details to bring to the fore. Great final results by the way with your paint job :)

    1. To much honour, thank you!
      I think the sculpters did a great job here, making it easy to paint them by creating deep recesses around the important parts. They indeed were very fun to paint.
