These three 28mm metal miniatures are made by “Pulp Figures” and can be bought as code PLT10 Killer Apes from the manufacturer's Lost Worlds and Lost Tribes range.
Having superglued them all on to “Games Workshop” 40mm round bases I gave each model an double undercoat of “Citadel” Abaddon Black before heavily dry-brushing each with “Vallejo” Heavy Charcoal.
This off-black paint really highlighted all the wonderful detail of Bob Murch’s sculpting. So I additionally used this colour to pick out all the dark areas of flesh on the primates’ hands, feet, chests and face. Once dry the Charcoal was clearly a little too contrastingly stark to the ‘pure’ black undercoat I’d used, so I washed the models with “Citadel” Nuln Oil to help blend it all in together.
Finally I ‘picked out’ the fingers, toes and brows with some more “Vallejo” Heavy Charcoal and finished off the ‘pulp monsters’ by highlighting their eyes with a spot of “Citadel” Abaddon Black.
