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.

  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. 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.
