The shadow demon is complete and The FF Project has gained another member:
|(L to R) Blindheim, Shadow Demon, Forlarren|
The three-part WIP photo below shows the base in various stages of completion: A) black wash and grey/white drybrushing over grey primer, B) the basic colors glazed on followed by some selectively applied washes, and C) highlights and some stronger shadows where needed.
Revisiting the construction of the base for a moment, the Reaper treasure mound was too large for the base until I reduced its size with my trusty motor tool. I had a pretty good idea of where the demon should be mounted and tried to work things out so that point wound up at the base's center. This required the removal of everything behind the chest. The resultant void was filled in with green stuff.
The coin-pile was extended to the front edge of the base with some stretched plastic sprue cut into disks and embedded in more green stuff.
And finally a few more pics of the end result:
