Super Dungeon Explore: Pets (Part 2)

At long last, the remaining three Pets from Super Dungeon Explore: Forgotten King have been completed!  Here are the final three Pets:  Madam Hilde, The Colonel, and Lord Gruff.

 






First Look:  As with the first three Pets, I used the accompanying stat cards as a reference for the colors on each figure.  I love the scowl on Lord Gruff (the goat).

Painting:  Due to the differing color palettes, each figure is detailed separately below.

Madam Hilde (the pig) was painted pink (VGC Squid Pink, Warlord Purple), with some variation for shading on the underside, the snout, and the mouth.  The helm was painted silver (VGC Chainmail) with bone white horns (MSP Linen White).  The eyes and hooves were painted black (VGC Coal Black), and the base painted medium gray (VGC Cold Grey).  The figure was finished with a combination of light brown and black inks (AP Soft Tone Ink, Dark Tone Ink).

The Colonel (the chicken) was painted off-white (MSP Linen White, Stonewall Grey) with light gray added for shading on the underside.  The comb and wattle were painted a dark red, the highlighted with a medium red (VGC Scarlett Red, Gory Red).  The beak and feet were painted medium yellow (VGC Gold Yellow, MSP HD Gilded Yellow), and the eye painted a light yellow (MSP Linen White, Clear Yellow).  The eyepatch was painted black (VGC Coal Black), and the base painted medium gray (VGC Cold Grey).  The figure was finished with light brown and black inks (AP Soft Tone Ink, Dark Tone Ink).

Lord Gruff (the goat) was painted off-white, with a mix of medium brown and medium grey for shading (MSP Linen White, Cold Grey, Intense Brown).  The saddle(?) was painted medium red (VGC Gory Red) with golden spikes and edging (VGC Bright Bronze).  The horns and hooves were painted dark brown (MSP HD Umber Brown), while the saddle(?) straps were painted a medium brown (MSP Ruddy Leather).  The grass was painted a medium green (VGC Goblin Green), and the base was painted medium gray (VGC Cold Grey).  The figure was finished with light and dark brown inks, as well as black ink (AP Soft Tone Ink, Strong Tone Ink, Dark Tone Ink).

Conclusion:  The figures turned out quite nicely I think, and I'm happy that I was able to get a pretty good color match on all three.  The shading in particular was tricky, as none of them really matched a pre-made color I had.  These were fun figures to paint, and fairly straightforward as well.  I would say Lord Gruff was probably the most complicated of all, primarily due to the saddle (or whatever that thing is).
