Asgard Gargoyle / Weird Blue Demon

It's been a while!  I haven't posted a miniature since August.  But I'm back and hopefully back on schedule.  Here is my latest mini:  Asgard Miniatures FM8 Gargoyle.  There is something I love about Asgard's crude yet weirdly appealing sculpts.  I realize that this figure was intended to be a gargoyle, but I couldn't bring myself to paint him grey (or brown?) so instead I turned him into some kind of weird blue demon.  I tried to blend from red to purple to blue on his skin. 


I'm reasonably happy with this figure.  I didn't realize how noticeable the gash on the left side of his stomach was until I was happily painting away.  If I had noticed it earlier, perhaps I would have filled it with a bit of green stuff before priming.  Oh well. 

I have lots of minis primed and based and waiting for me to paint, so hopefully I will be back soon.  Stay tuned.

  1. Nice colours... I particularly like the rich, deep purple on his protruding frank & beans. This is a fun figure, obviously sculpted with tongue in cheek (or protruding goofily, perhaps) and your paint job is definitely a step above a grey stone cathedral topper! He looks a bit like a Ray Harryhausen monster, as it happens.
