Sea Serpent from Blood Rage Boardgame

I backed the Blood Rage kickstarter earlier this year and I got the loot in in October. The first miniature is painted now - the sea serpent. It will obviously be used in the game when we start playing, but it could also see use in both fantasy and pulp settings. A great mini.
It’s made in a grey rather hard plastic that is easy to clean from the very faint mold lines.
Paints used:
Skin – Vallejo 928 Dark Yellow + wash with Army painter Strong Tone Ink
Tentacles - 982 Dark Yellow and got several washes with Citadel Washes Baal Red, more on the tips and only one close to the body
Mouth – 985 Hull Red highlighted with Citadel Scab Red
Teeth – Vallejo Game Colour Bone White with a Strong Tone wash and more Bone White as highlight.
Water – 962 Flat Blue with a wash of Citadel Washes Asurmen Blue. Highlighted with a mix of Flat Blue, Citadel Ice Blue and white getting progressively more white at edges.
Everything got a coat of gloss varnish and is ready for the table.

First stop will probably be in our Pulp Alley campaign on Perilous Island.


  1. Wow! Great mini...and great job!

    1. Thanks, Gordon!
      I fell for Blood Rage just because of the monsters, there are a couple more amazing ones.

    1. Thank you!
      I was rather fearful of the water, and it stood there for a month waiting for blue paint...
      Worked out well in the end

  3. That is going to look great in Surabaya Harbour!

  4. Looks great! I'm considering painting mine as well, but have had bad experiences varnishing soft plastic figures. Any problems with 'sticky varnish' with yours? Played the game with the family and everybody thoroughly enjoyed it.

  5. I haven't had any problems with my Vallejo varnishes on any of my plastic minis-
    I haven't had a chance to play the game uyet, but I hope for a chance next week. The minis are great and the game mechanics looks interesting. Looking forward to a game.
