Wraiths from WotC

More minis from Castle Ravenloft boardgame, this time three wraiths. They are one piece and made in a translucent blue plastic. I’m not overly impressed with the choice of colour; I believe a more greyish would have been much better. Anyway, blue they are. One problem was the bases, they were blue also.
I painted them with the usual ‘dungeon’ textured paint, and drybrushed with a lighter buff.
That didn’t look good, as you sort of saw through them into the translucent blue base.

So I painted the underside of the base with black, and the effect was quite nice. The black reflects up into the wraith, and it looks as if it rises from the ground as a black mist.
If only they had been grey...
