The Bog-fiends of Zargon

We were exploring the dungeon, when suddenly the room filled up with mist; I don't know where it came from, we were in an underground labyrinth, for Taal's sake! Out of nowhere, old Johann screamed as he was cleaved in twain. The mist began to withdraw and there were these one-eyed demons attacking us. I ain't ashamed to admit it, but I ran in fear at the sight of them things, and it's the only reason I'm alive today!

I'm back! And more importantly, I've caught up on my photography. As I promised with the orcs, here are the Fimir from Heroquest. Of all the regular villains for game, these were the most fun to paint.


I started off by airbrushing them with Dryad bark and then applying zenithal highlights all the way up to Baneblade brown. Then I washed the whole models with Seraphim Sepia, although I think may a Seraphim Sepia-Agrax Earthshade mix may have been a better option.


After the first wash dried, I applied Druchi Violet, but only to the deepest recesses of the model. Then, I reapplied, buy hand, Baneblade Brown as a highlight, followed by a mix of Baneblade Brown and White.


The rest of the details are pretty bog standard (pun intended) but for fun, I also gave each Fimir a different colored eye. I figure they only have one and everything else is very similar across the models so it would help set them apart.

On the Heroquest front, I have now finished all the models, and am currently working on replacement scenery, so the project is almost over!

  1. That’s look very rapey Dyer! J/k they look fantastic. I like that you made them a little lighter then the normal goblin green. The blood splatter is just right. Excellent stuff man. I love how you are getting through the collection. What all do you have left?

    1. Thanks! Everything is finished except for some substitute terrain, I'm replacing the card stuff with resin/plastic versions. Currently, the tomb is sitting on my painting desk!

  2. Nice job! These minis don't get all the love they deserve, so I'm happy to see such a cool job :)

    1. Thanks! In my mind, these are the quintessential Fimir, not the larger metal ones so they deserve as much love as we can give them.
