West Wind's follow up Kickstarter to their very successful launch of their 15mm ancients line of miniatures is now live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/832150598/war-and-empire-ii-legions-of-rome It is already funded and headed towards its second stretch goal.
After feeling decidedly "meh" about painting the other day, I managed to snap out of my funk and get a couple of characters done! These Celt heroes will be characters in my Kings of War human army, leading the contingent of barbarian mercenaries. This first one will be the general of the barbarians, so I went for a nice, regal purple cloak for him. Like all the other barbarians, he's a redhead (bit of inspiration from the Hyborian Age Vanir). I used some of the Bryan Sky Steel from ReaperCon on the metal, and practiced some of the principles from Michael Proctor's shaded metallics class. This other bloodthirsty brute will be the unit leader of the army's berserker horde, and you can see he's a bit scarred up from being in the thick of the slaughter. He's also a giant compared to the other Celts! Obviously no red hair, being bald and all. First time making a dribble of blood like that too, using a hair plucked from my own head! C&C absolutely welcome.
