03116: Black Legionnaire w/ Crossbow For Frostgrave

Recommended Posts

So having gotten in a few games of Frostgrave, I have decided that my warband was not optimal......

I decided to add the armored master crossbowman, (Can't remember his title...) and got a hold of  03116: Black Legionnaire w/ Crossbow, with one of my orders for the minis of the month...

As I have not had any motivation to paint, I have tried a couple times to get my mojo going, and did some base coating on this guy...

Hoping he adds some ranged punch to my group....

Thanks for looking!

Looking good so far!  the armored crossbow guy is a Marksman in Frostgrave.  I usually take one when I can afford one, so hopefully he'll help you out.  I usually give him some height and have him stay put so he can fire every round.

Still need to finish up the base, and decide who to pitch from the warband....

i must be dense, as i have no idea WTF you are getting at...

I was joking that your WIP was like those instructional drawing books. 

Step 1 = Begin with circles

Step 2 = Add some more circles

Step 3 = Finish with more circles

Step 4 = Add details.

The joke for the drawing book, is that something happened between step 3 and step 4, but step 4 only shows the completed image. ^.^

Ah!

I do my wips as my painting journals...

I am constantly looking at a new mini and thinking, I need to do the black I did on the Hobgoblin Death chicken rider, along with the browns that I used on Kanaag etc...

 

I tried writing them as a journal, and did not work for broccoli...

      Every now and then, it's fun to give something new a try.  In this case, I had a spare Ingrid lying around since hubby didn't want to paint her, and this all started with me trying to show hubby how I do drybrushing...  Or at least attempt drybrushing, since I'm not all that good at it.  Thankfully, it helped him pick up the basics alongside what was written in the LTPK Core manual...
       
      Then it turned into a downward, flaming spiral, but arguably, in this case, flaming is good. ^_^;;;;  I wondered, is it possible to drybrush an ENTIRE mini...  And even more so, can I do it with just FOUR paints, where two of them had technically already been chosen since I'd started on her cloak, AND none of them could technically be from the same colour group as another (so no reds if you have an orange or pink, etc)?  And even more so, using JUST the #2 flat brush I had picked out before for the drybrushing?
       
      Well, uhmn....  First and foremost, it was fun, and that was the point of it all for me.  Just sit down, have fun, and see where things go.  In short, I'm calling it a draw - I've picked up on a few more things as basics to work from, and I'm fairly proud of that cape, doubly so since it wasn't anywhere near as long to do as other techniques.  Does it sell it as well as layering does?  Nope, but I'm okay with that!
       
      Anyways, onwards to the results of some experimentation to see just what my own limits could be with such a technique, and what kind of colours I can come up with using just 9417 Void Blue, 9432 Desert Sand, 9600 Heart Throb Pink, and 29833 Ash Grey....  For the record, the two I had started with on the cape were Heart Throb pink as well as Ash Grey, since the Ash Grey was used to initially demonstrate what I was doing for drybrushing, and then the Heart Throb Pink was chosen as something that would very much so stand out so he could watch every stroke of the brush...  I wound up liking such, and so rolled forward to do the entire mini with drybrushing.  Oh, right, I'm not counting the primering of the mini, which was done with Grey Liner.... ~_^
       

       
       
       
      The story I'm going with is that it's a cursed gem that steadily corrupts and takes over one's body and soul, and that she's pretty much completely overtaken by it...  Or something, as she's kind of a pink glowing eyed dusty grey skin coloured gnome now, with gear that hopefully looks fairly dated / well aged....

      Stonehaven Ent Troll, a much friendlier looking treeman, from one of the Stonehaven Kickstarters.

      This is Scibor Treeman #3 (SKU 28MFM0151).  Tried to  him dark and evil looking, though the skulls kinda give that vibe as well....

      I had finished the dragon in December last year, but I still had the base to work on. Finally finished this brand new looking clockwork dragon painted with metallic paints and my favorite blue, Nightmare Black this weekend.  I still have another, thinking of doing a rusty/tarnished version sometime.

      This is an old Mage Knight figure that I slightly converted and repainted. He was holding a comically undersized flail in his left hand, so I cut it off and replaced it with a halberd from an old GW Chaos Warrior I had in my bits box. After that, it was just a matter of repainting him for use on the tabletop. He'll make an interesting BBEG in some game I haven't created yet.
       

       

       

       
      Thanks for looking.
