Khurasan Pit Fiends Preview


Here are 2 interesting models for Khurasan. Pit fiends or "Jersey Devils"intended for eldritch horror games. In my house they will also find use as summoned monsters for my barbarian heroes to face in Crom.

I tried doing some source lighting from the eyes on these minis.. It worked OK, not great IMO. I obviously need practice.

These guys are BIG, the base pictured is a 25mm, below is a comparison picture with a standard 15mm mini on a 20mm round slotta base.


I don't think these are available yet, but I'd guess they are in Jon's rather long queue at the caster's. 

Thanks for looking!

  1. Is that effect in the face supposed to be eyes glowing or just face coloration ? At first glance I assumed it was the second but then I noticed eyes were the same color...

    Anyway love the result! I'm expecting to find El Chupacabra arround anytime soon ;)

  2. It's meant to be eyes glowing, but I think the technique would work better with something larger. I'm going to try glowing faceplates on my ACP figures, so will see how that goes.

  3. I like those!

    For a quick and easy cheat at OSL, try Vallejo Model Color 936 - Transparent Green, it gives a good effect with very little work.

  4. Very nice, Jacker. I like the focus of the meanie being the face, especially the eyes.

  5. Hey Spacejacker, really nice work on these monsters! Do the wings come separately or are these minis each cast as a single piece?

    Also I wanted to let you know that you won a little prize in a contest I've been running over at my blog for all my readers. Here's the address for where you can find the details about it:

  6. Papa JJ- Thanks very much both for the comment and the brilliant prize.. It's both much needed and appreciated! (I sent you an email on your dicerollablog address)

    The wings are separate pieces that need to be glued into slots on the model's back.. I used some putty as well to make a strong join.

  7. Dunno, the eyes look glowing from the straight on head shots. From the side, they don't quite look like they glowing, but I can't even guess has to how to achieve that from that angle.

  8. nice looking mini! Great paint too, looks menacing. I like 15mm minis that can step in to a 28mm scale (as well as the reverse) and be at home too, like this one.

  9. These guys would be very at home on a 28mm tabletop.

  10. Ideal for Fantasy gaming at 15mm. There is now nearly enough to get me started on a set for the Labyrinth Lord game.
