As I mentioned last post, I had just got back from a vacation trip to CA with the wife and the Brightwell's. One thing we all did together was head up to Universal Studios Hollywood which we put in a 12 hour day and watch some folks get motion sick (I shall not mention the name of the effected party member so as not to embarrass him). Anyways one of the attractions that we did (except for my wife the scared cat) was the Universal House of Horrors walk thru attraction.
So as the name implies, this is your basic haunted house sort of walk thru, but the cool thing is that Universal has populated it with some of there classic horror creatures like Dracula, the Mummy, Frankenstein and the Wolf man as well as a few others. (Like Chucky who scared Robs wife so bad the cast member who was playing Chucky, fell back laughing and Rob and I were busting up as well!).
Well Universal did an outstanding job on the sets inside and I was impressed and inspired at the same time. This got me to thinking of my Empire of the Dead collection back home and I needed to throw some paint on a few models.
So this week while working on a commission for Saguaro Painting Service customer, I painted up a few models for myself. So here are my efforts from this week. First up are a few of my Lycaon group that I am building.
|The wolf pack!|
So first up are two of the Great Wolves that are in the Gothic Horror line. I went for a grey scheme and you can not see it, but they both have a black strip running down their backs. These guys are pretty huge, they are close to the old GW wolves that were out a few years ago.
