I was recently contacted to paint a large scale model from Delicious in Dungeon (also known as Dungeon Meshi), a manga I hadn’t heard about at that point. The model is a large resin garage kit, at an unspecified scale, of the main character Laios. The kit is from the Charagumin line by Volks.
This was my first time working on such a big piece, at least scale-wise. It was fun to work with metallic paints, as natural light and reflection work better with a large piece like that than our usual 28-32mm gaming miniatures. It was also a good practice for my airbrush skills.
Here is a scale comparison shot with a Guild Ball model on a 30mm base, to give you a better idea of the size of that piece.
Finally, some more pictures of the completed model.
Since, I’ve started reading said manga, and it is right in my wheelhouse. If you want a light and funny fantasy read, I recommend checking it out. I will also have the chance to work on some more character from the same line soon; I’m looking forward to that!
