Mansions of Madness monsters

There are a variety of new monsters in Mansions of Madness 2nd edition. The bases they come with are, like the first edition, truly awful. I rebased and painted the figures and added them to my eldritch collection!

The Hunting Horrors were stuck to Citadel flight stands I had had lying about for years.

The rioters come three to a base, but I've left them individually based for use in other games if necessary.

The cultists are the first edition ones, so I didn't re-do them. The High Priest of Dagon is a little too fluorescent, and I may do some more work on him.

The deep one hybrids really came to life with a blue-green lower lip, and some dodgy eyes. Suitably batrachian!

The child of Dagon looks more like a zombie.

The deep ones were easy to paint with a mix of green and blue washes. I wasn't a fan of these initially, but now I think they're my favourite.

The ghosts were easy to paint, with a green wash over white.

The star spawns are suitably large whilst somewhat static in pose, but look fine after a green/ brown paint job.

Here's the second edition content, and the combined first and second edition.



Ia! Ia!

  8. That's some top-notch painting there, Barks, and the rebasing on the hunting horrors is a definite win. Well done!

  11. You're right, the Deep Ones are amazing. I'm about ready to violate the Benthic Treaty here!

    I actually like the hybrids, despite their "samey-ness" (I might have given them different weapons and even hats, but it is a fair bit of work, I know!), and the child of Dagon is downright creepy! I'm really enjoying this turn for the Lovecraftian and all the disturbing characters you're turning out :)

    1. Naturally, I'd prefer different poses and weapons, but at the end of the day they're low quality boardgame pieces and I decided I don't have the time!

    I'm painting this game so this is a huge inspiration to me.

    Can you describe how you painted the jeans for the rioters please ?

    Gratz!

    1. Thanks, Xavier!

      The jeans are very simple: a blue-grey (like Citadel Space Wolf Grey), then Army Painter Blue Wash. Done!

    1. I think it was a cream/ ivory basecoat and a wash of Army Painter Warpaint Soft Tone.
