Papsikels Goes Wild

The ever excellent Papsikels Patreon brings us some old school comic style action for its Fantasy tier for the month of February with some fantastic looking creatures inspired by a very famous duo of characters.

The Meta-Humans: Tusks and Horns features two new races to the Meta-Humans, the Rhinocs and the Warhogs that are as deadly and fearsome as they look, with each towering over most of the other Meta-Human races.

There are several variations on both races in this months offering with both the Rhinics and Warhogs looking very much in keeping with the rest of the released Meta-Humans and having a very striking resembalance to that of two very popular cartoon characters from the 90s.

Prints are offered as usual in both supported and non-supported options and come out very clean and crisp with little to no pock marking if the supported versions are used. Animation is as to be expected with everything that comes from Papsikels first class and all of the models come in a variety of poses and weapon options as shown below.

The February Fantasy tier went live on February 15th so still plenty of time to get yours

As a bonus this month we get Elf Death Shooter Lucca which is a cross-promotions with Kyoushuneko Miniatures and Cobra Mode offer not one but two free miniatures from their Patreon

The models paint up really well, and even with my poor eyesight they turned out pretty good and I am very pleased to show off my first attempt at painting using only a very limited colour palette.

The Rhinoc Street Smasher ‘Vig Boy Rumble’ was painted entirely using just Vallejo airbrush primers White and Black on my first proper attempt at a zenithal highlight. It did actually start off as just a primed model that I used the zenithal approach to, but after looking at it I thought why not give comic book style a try and this is the result.

Each colour was mixed on my Army Painter wet pallette with just water and I think that there are about seven shades of grey all told and for a test, I am very pleased with the results. I plan on printing out this miniature again but at around 75mm scale and doing the same style. It is pretty strange just painting in two tones but I really enjoyed the challenge of doing so and I am keen to repeat it again.

I also printed out and painted two others from this months offering but went for the normal style of painting for both of those. Both were painted using Citadel Contrast paints and Vallejo paints over a black primer.
