'Comedic' by SimonM - 'Hellbaby'

This 28mm plastic model of an infant Anung Un Rama (“and upon his brow is set a crown of flame”) is model 007 Hellbaby from the “Wizkids” Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. “Heroclix” Action Pack. The demon was created by writer/artist Mike Mignola and the character’s comic book adventures are published by “Dark Horse Comics”. 

Having removed the miniature from its ‘clicky’ stand and super-glued it to a 25mm round base, I undercoated it with two layers of “Vallejo” Heavy Red. I then picked out the little fellow’s hooves with White before washing them with “The Army Painter” Warpaint Quickshade Strong Tone. As the red-skinned creature was discovered by the Allied Army, I painted his trousers with “Vallejo” Heavy grey and his shirt with Heavy Brown. I then washed his trousers with “Citadel” Thrakka Green before using more of “The Army Painter” Quickshade Strong Tone on his shirt. For his flesh and ‘Right Hand of Doom’ I simply tidied up the “Vallejo” Heavy Red before applying a heavy Shade of Carroburg Crimson over the areas. Finally I picked out the eyes of Professor Bruttenholm’s adopted son with “Vallejo” Heavy Ochre.
