Painting the Grymkin is Grim

Take a look at some techniques to make these gruesome models even more horrific.

The Grymkin are the newest faction out for Hordes. And they are Gruesome. They have creatures out of nightmares, like evil scarecrows, a horror that’s just a bunch of skin and moaning faces…and then there’s this…

It’s called a Frightmare and is some kind of Horse…Witch…thing. I mean at first glance it just loks misshapen, then you realize it’s a humanoid horse monster. Then you realize that what you thought was a neck is in fact a horse’s head that is vomiting up a second head, which is itself vomiting up a witch’s face. So naturally, you want to learn how to make the most out of those lovely details. Fortunately, Privateer Press has got you covered.

You can paint along with Brendan Roy, one of the Privateer Press studio painters, and see how he doles out the details on the face-mouth-combo, while also answering some questions and talking about the state of the game.

So if you, as the video suggests, are having a Bad Mare Day, then you should head on over and check out this painting tutorial. It’s a long one, clocking in at about an hour or so–but there’s a lot of good stuff in there–you can see how Brendan uses his palette, hear him talk about technique and theory (including a bunch not related to the model at hand), so it’s a good way to get some insights about painting in general.

Especially if you’ve got a ton of minis to paint up, having one of these videos handy can help streamline the whole process. So get out there and get a-painting, folks. And remember, though they may seem whimsical, the Grymkin do not horse around.

Present company excepted, of course.
