Rising Sun boardgame – Komainu painted

Hello all

A long while ago my duck brother and I backed the Cool Mini or Not Rising Sun Kickstarter and a not so long time ago all the lovely minis etc arrived. Until now I’d been holding off on painting anything, but my bro inspired me to get cracking so I picked the Komainu, which is pretty much the same as the Chinese Shishi, a sight I was rather fond of when I lived in Shijiazhuang.

Here he is, pictures taken in my newly bought lightbox:

In game he’s a fairly cheap Monster, but can act as a priest to help gain favour from the Kami, so he’s versatile and useful throughout the game.

    1. See above for the tail. For the body if I remember right it was primed black, then basecoated a warm brown, then coated with auric armour gold, then washed with a vallejo brown wash of some kind, then a relayering of raised bits with auric, then a 50/50 mix of auric and a silver for highlights.

    1. I believe it was primed black, then got a layer of Khorne Red, then a second layer of Khorne Red avoiding the shaded parts, then a couple thin coats of Evil Sunz Scarlet, then I started mixing in flash gitz yellow to make a highlight colour, then finally mixing in white for the extreme highlights. I wasn’t really following a recipe though. I do remember it was all GW paints for that one.
