Mushroom Men

Here's some more color to add to my Low Life collection. These are Reaper's Mushroom men (No. 2679) and Mushroom King (No. 3041), all sculpted by Jason Wiebe.

They were easy to paint, but there were a lot of details to take care of such as the spots on top of the caps, the mushroom growths on all of the figures' backs, and especially the king's staff. But everything went off without a hitch, and now I have probably my most colorful figures so far.

It was fun to dig out some brighter colors; they don't get a lot of play on my table, but that'll probably change with the incoming Low Life figures. 

This other figure is another random Reaper figure I pulled off the shelf to finish for Jeff. I think that leaves me with just two or three of his figures to paint before the Bones tsunami.


  1. They look great. I see what you mean about the detail on the Mushroom men, look brilliant though.

  2. Very interesting mushroom sculpts and paint scheme. Well done IMO.

  3. Nice work. The red mushroom caps especially are, if not truly mycologically authentic, at least exactly what they should look like on these guys :)

  4. Nicely painted work
    I really like these creations
    I always meant to get more of these
    I Certainly need to get a few more of he chunkier ones
