Swamp Horror for Widowers Wood Painted

I have another heavy warbeast painted! This time its a Swamp Horror, and it was a lot of fun to paint.
I picked purple mainly because I have never painted a mini with purple as its main colour before and he seemed like an idea mini to try it on.

I asked on the Warmachine & Hordes Painting facebook group for people's opinions on how I should paint the round orbs on the sides of its head. Dallas suggested a glossy black look which I really liked the idea of that and went with it. A few people suggested colours like lime green or yellow but I thought they would clash too much with the purple skin. 
If you aren't a member of the of the W/H painting group its well worth joining, its a very positive place and a great inspiration seeing everyone's painted minis!
You can find the group here

I am really pleased with the milky blue eyes they add a nice spot colour to the mini and really draw the eyes in. Credit to my wife for picking the colour for them!

Really hard to get a good picture of, but painting the tentacles and underbelly of the mini was really tricky but I got there in the end!

So what do you think of my Swamp Horror? I'm really happy with it and can't wait to get to use that 4" melee range!


  1. That is super cool - Nicely done!

    1. Thanks! I'm really pleased with how it turned out it was a nice change of pace to paint!
