Today I’d like to share a PDF painting guide for one of the “narrative sculpt” survivors from the Gambler’s Chest expansion to Kingdom Death: Monster – the Cockroach Queen:
I sometimes forget the challenges and rewards of actually creating ones own colour scheme for a miniature (since a lot of what I do is based on existing franchises/character art etc).
For this fearsome survivor I felt a somewhat “Gothic” colour palette would suit the character well – hence the predominantly purple-ish colour scheme (which also compliments the yellow glow of the lanterns).
I’d forgotten just how fine and detailed the KDM minis are, and although no-one’s going to see the nuances of the facial tones etc on the gaming table, I find these miniatures just invite a level of care and passion when painting that’s hard to ignore:
Here she is on the board that comes with the Gambler’s Chest:
I hope the guide is useful to some of you! Do watch for the next KDM painting video dropping in October…
PS I’d like to thank my kind patrons on Patreon for funding these guides, and I’d also like to share an affiliate link to the Rosemary & Co Series 8 and Series 33 brushes that I love to use (sizes 1 or 2 – “Short handle”), and here’s an affiliate link to Element Games where I buy most of my other hobby supplies. Thank you!
