The Revenant Boy

The Chapel has many ghosts but none are as horrific as the Revenant Boy.

The suffering of this poor child was so great that the horror and pain of it became something all together evil and vengeful. His death was meant to be a sacrifice to malignant forces but as the last strike was cast he made them his own and vowed to get revenge on the living.

Blood soaked and screaming he appears and as the screams get louder the evil wrath that’s within him sucks the dripping blood out of his ethereal body, bursting into pained existence from his mutilated form and wrecking savage murder on all that’s in his path.






I’ve always wanted to paint a model in blood for the blood god, it’s such a wonderfully gruesome paint and it’s the main reason for this idea. The blood being sucked out of him was done by modeling the boy and then printing him using clear resin. I then just primed the parts I wanted to paint. Once the model work was done it was a pretty quick job to finish and it was highly enjoyable slapping gore all over him.

  1. That is flippin’ brilliant mate… I like how you drop in the ‘just printed it in clear resin’ bit, all casual like πŸ˜‰ The end result is superb dude, love it!

    1. Cheers mate! Do you have anything you’d like designed and printed? Something you’ve always wanted but can’t find

      1. Hmmm… never really thought about it really! Let me mull it over – I’m sure I could think of something πŸ˜‰

      2. I’ll have a few Black Earth items to give away on the day.

  2. Welcome back! How was your time away? I really enjoy how this model looks, especially the poor lads pose. And I’m stealing your blood for the blood god idea for my own gore spirit hosts!

    1. It was really lovely thanks mate. Nice and warm πŸ™‚ Glad you like it and by all means get gory.

  3. Oh my God! This! This is so cool. Well done, mate, well done.

    1. Thank you. Skulls and blood is what we live for!!

  5. Sick twisted and brilliant πŸ˜‰

    1. Yep! Cheers dude.

  6. Twisted mate! I like it! Usually I’m very much a minimalist when it comes to Blood for the Blood God but that shows how well the opposite extreme can work as well. Nice one!

    1. Thanks Wudu! It was damn liberating slapping it on! The texture of the paint is like painting with viscera πŸ˜‰ I found that I needed to do some extreme highlights first over the black base to get a sense of depth.

  7. […] of grim dark hobby creativity. The background piece he wrote got me intrigued and when he dropped the Revenant boy and Casper … well, head on over and see for yourself. Also check out IRO’s The Chapel […]

  8. Love the look of this – I think I will adapt the idea for some new objective markers for my Word Bearers/Warp Cultisits.

    1. Cheers! Sounds good.
