This is what I finished up this morning during the Dean family paint and chat session. My brother, my two sons, and I are all gamers, so we try to have a weekly chat to discuss what we’ve been playing and/or reading, often to the accompaniment of brushes rattling in cleaning water. These guys were primed back in March 2020, after I got home from Cincycon where I had spent the weekend worrying about the looming pandemic and playing Chaos Wars. I painted one of the four thieves in this set promptly, and then set everything aside. This week I have been thinking about whether I had the figures (in old style small 25mm) to support a game of D&D (original brown booklets style, most likely) and that prompted me to pull out some of the already-primed things at hand. Sculpting by Tom Meier…
Started these at the same time I did the Middenheimers. One is based on Astrid from Skyrim, the other on an old coworker whom the sculpt resembled. Victory two of the challenge thus far. Overall I'm happy with how they came out. again I went with a simple grey stone base in case I rebase them in the future. "Dine and dash, eh?!" "The Dark Brotherhood eats for free!" The cloak could've come out better, but I'm more concerned with clearing the Shelf of Incompleteion currently.
In an effort to stave off "Dwarf Fatigue", figured I'd attempt something different alongside. Wizkids Female Rogues. I've painted these before for some coworkers, and found the one on the right to be extremely frustrating do to how the cloak hung. After some lurking about on the Wzkids thread it dawned on me to use the same "hot water/cold water" technique as for Bones on them. After a resounding "D'oh!" I did so and got good results. They've been hit with some watered down Sepia Wash, and I'm pretty sure I've gotten most of the mold lines. The color scheme I have in mind is the one on the left will be a recreation of the one I gifted to Eleven Coworker, as the sculpt is basically a mini me version of her, and the one on the right will be done in the style of the Dark Brotherhood of Skyrim as her daggers have kind of a Daedric vibe to them. Wizkids Female Barbarians. I haven't previously painted these and am currently undecided as to go with a series of browns/greys on them or if I should attempt to give a certain Stormcloak or Middenheimer vibe to them by adding blues in.
After almost a year of work, I've finally completed this piece. 2 hours each on the adventurers, about an hour each on the terrain pieces, and close to 6 hours on the dragon itself. A lot of different colors used, so I'm not even going to try to mention them all. The terrain is mostly dry brushed, and washes. The dragon has no dry brushing at all though. Everything else is either layered or blended painting. Thanks for looking! Enjoy! (And yes, that is my YouTube channel in the background. LOL)
