Due to public demand, and to test run my new paint brush, this evening I have painted the Jabberwock photographed in the last blog update. I also painted the other Jabberwock I have.
The green-ish one is based on the colourised illustration used in Alice Through the Looking Glass. The second Jabberwock is loosely based on the Jabberwock in the film Jabberwocky, although I have given it red eyes consistant with the poems discription of 'eyes of flame' (although that might be a simile).
As noted, I won't be using any of the Jabberwocks in my 3,000 point Dark Elf army. They will probably get put in one of the Chaos armies or a larger points Dark Elf army. Fun to paint though, and quick. I will be varnishing and basing them tomorrow.
Also, in between waiting for the paint to dry on the Jabberwocks, I finished off the Grenadier Rock Lizard Monster that I intend using as a wingless Dragon for the Dwarf army.
I'm quite pleased by the way all three turned out.

The body. In the poem the Jabberwock wears a vest, but the model does'nt (probably best, it would look right for Warhammer).
The darker Jabberwock. Easy to paint, just drybrusing green-grey over black, with some details. He looks a lot less freindlier than the other one.
Side view. No vest either!
Back view. His tail is slightly longer, the other one might have the end missing.
