Ghost archipelago warband, warden

Recommended Posts

I have put together a crew of North star and Bad Squiddo  figures. A reaper druid is going to act as the warden and I will probably use the Bad Squiddo female pirate (drawing her sword) as the Heritor or buy a Reaper female pirate. The concept is that they are all ex navy or ex marines so have similar kit, red breeches, blue grey or linen shirts, dark brown boots. My goals with these are to do better work highlighting/finishing the faces, and to avoid them looking muddy. That looks fine for Frostgrave but a bit dull for GA. At the moment these have just had base/undercoats and a wash of Army Painter Light Tone.  C and c always welcome on my posts.

Thanks everyone, I should add that there is a wargames foundry pirate in there as well (dual wielder with bandana) and a Hasslefree half orc barbarian. Next steps are metals, details, highlighting and basing. Am going to have a combination of wooden planks and sand/grass/undergrowth. One of the reasons for basing the figures off to one side was to make more of the bases.

The hired muscle. Hasslefree/Red Box half orc, northstar swordsman, wargames foundry pirate and a northstar archer.

A few more completed but for the basing. All Northstar, medium or heavy infantry/men at arms/freebooter/mercenary (I get them mixed up), and a dwarf smith (not from Frostgrave or GA).

 

The first chap was meant to be sunburned so may need to go back in with a glaze or highlight for the face.

 

I am going to see if brown mod podge works on the bases, which have been specially tinted to deter paint and grease it seems! Will then add textures and details on top. Am also thinking about not filling in the holes in all the bases so that the gaming surface is visible.

The Last two. Not too happy with the crossbow lady and think I should do more highlighting to face and maybe change bandana colour.

Here is a WIP of a new Heritor. She is a wargames foundry Tudor swashbuckler. Will. Go back in and do more highlights to the cloak, dress, and skin before detailing.

Looks good!

 

As for the crossbow lady, if you apply some red stripes on the bandana you have an easy way to make it stand out more.
