I had been working on this guy for a long while, but last month, I finally got him painted up! Since I posted his building and modding here, I wanted to show you guys the final result. Without further ado - behold the Cryx Kraken!
I went with a brass color with heavy washes to make a verdigris effect. I painted the seaweed with a variety of greens to get the organic look.
Out front, you can see this modified plastic zombie mini I used to pose as the dead victim in the claw of the Kraken.
Here's another close up detail - I still have some of the dead and dying figures I used from the Wraith Engine that I made. Two of these guys ended up painted and placed on the rock outcropping below the Kraken's leg. Note the brown barnacles down there - I made them with green stuff!
Finally, here's the back end. I little more seaweed was draped on the back. Those exhaust pipes were a major pain, but it was worth it to get in all the fine details on them.
Overall, this model was a tremendous blast to assemble, modify, and paint. Best of all, he came out pretty much how I pictured him. I wish I could take all of the credit for this guy's appearance, but I was inspired by this post over on the Privateer Press boards. Particularly in the verdigris effect that was used on the model.
Anyhow, hope everyone's having a good Memorial Day weekend! Paint on!
