Horde of the North, Glitterwolf paints Barbarians and Mammoths

Recommended Posts

Yup another project, as if I didn't have enough on my hands.

This will take a while, but I will start again.


A few decades ago ( before I roamed this Forum) I created a Barbarian Army with Animal allies.

I sold it and all I have left are these tiny pics that show only part of it.

Also, this was decades ago so I didn't paint as well as I do today ( or at least I think so)


Here are the old pics as appetizers, I will soon start the new army.

When Bones IV arrives I will include all those Cavemen, the Hut the Warchief Mamluk, the Idol and the Mammoth in here.

Also the Frost Giant Raiders.


For now I have some Animals ( bear, wolves, sabretooth) and a few metal female barbarians to paint.



Winter is Coming!

Very cool! I look forward to seeing how this one develops!

Oh, and helpfully making a suggestion or two about figures along the way.::D:

Just don't wear your favourite leather vest when the bear hugs you... Might come out of it with extra ventilation...

      I painted Stonehaven’s Halfling Berserker to use as my gnome barbarian D&D character. It was a fairly quick paint job for me, only a few hours. I had finished everything but the metallics a few months ago and kept forgetting to finish her up.

      Here's a figure that I painted in the last week: Liela, the sorceress for the Darkreach dark elves, from Warlord's Savage North.
      Besides my usual palette for dark elves -- Volcano Brown skin, Deep Amethyst metals, Brown Liner ("black") leather and cloth -- I also used Surf Aqua and Sky Blue to get some icy tones. Her eyes are a softer pink than the orange or red that I've used on other dark elves. Her staff is in bone colors, with some scribbled painted-on texture.
      For the snow, I used the same technique that I made up for the dwarven King Axehelm figure: Deep Amethyst, Sky Blue, and Pure White for the snow, and simulations of reflected light on the undersides of some objects using Sky Blue and Pure White.

      I painted King Axehelm while I was at Reaper HQ in late May, after ReaperCon.
      You might recognize him from the cover of the Warlord Savage North book. (Frost giant not included.)

      Behold, Bregan the valkyrie!
      Gene Van Horne sculpted her, and she was a lot of fun to paint.
      The rock has a core of old leftover bits (Green Stuff), held together with new putty, and a surface layer of Green Stuff + ProCreate + Aves Apoxie Sculpt.
      I have a big container of glue-on snow product in my cabinet but haven't used it much -- I have generally sculpted snow as solid masses and then used paint to add the flaky texture -- example1 (dark elf sorceress),  example2 (dwarf king) but I decided to go back to the old for a change.  I think I also used this same container of "snow" on 02152 Fafnir of Kjord (link) ... painted in 2003!!!  There's a Throwback Thursday for you.  My painting style has changed a little since then.

      Has anyone seen a little girl wearing a red hood and carrying a picnic basket? Asking for a friend!
      Here is my version of the Bones werewolf. He is a very beefy guy and was fun to paint. Since I was painting all of my wolfish figures, I tried to give them a mix of colors. This guy got the same fur treatment that I did on my warg. I need a few more "normal" wolves for my pack and will probably do at least one white. For now, I have finished all of the ones that I own. I had a good time painting them but am ready to paint something that doesn't have fur!
