January’s Villains Drop Unboxed
January's Villains Drop featured a massive Fire Giant Huntsman from Reaper Miniatures, complete with his Hell Hound! To fully show off this incredible model, we wanted to build a desolate lava-style environment. To start with, we designed our very own basing texture - Lava Landscape - which represents a fiery basalt land when covering the base! To add to the atmosphere, we featured some Lava Tufts from Shadow's Edge Miniatures and a set of Human Skulls from MiniMonsters.
A large miniature also needs a large basing bit to add height and variety to the scene, so we also include an impressive Darkwood Tree from MiniMonsters to add to the wooden base with the Huntsman. Finally, to create a lava effect and to paint the lava dog, we included a bright orange Candy Ink from Green Stuff World! Our Painting Guide for this moth covered how to paint a lava dog.
Our Patreon Channel now features January's Villains Painting Guide, covering this fun and simple lava effect. For just $4 you can have access to over 27+ Painting Guides, including January's, here!
