Giant Cauldron WITH Skulls
Magic Lantern posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI picked this up ages ago at a wargames fair I think from the Bring and Buy. No idea what the original story was - the blocks under the skulls each have a rune or a Roman numeral but I don't think the runes are from the same alphabet...and the helmet in the ashes is Greek. The cauldron though battered has the remains of raised decoration. But it is quite a fabulous piece and as a bonus the two parts can be used separately... Not sure what the hill giants have seasoned their Man-Stew with to get it that colour. I decided that they have come across the self-heating skulls artifact and used it. These Hill Giants I painted a few years ago have Neolithic tastes ( jewellery and tattoos) but have obviously raided a castle somewhere and adapted tapestries etc to wear. Slaine is a standard 28mm figure for scale....
Katapesh Merchant & Bags and Jars
Pochi posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThis is my used artifact merchant. I am very happy with the paint job on him. I am less happy with the fight he and I had over being pinned. I have had him finished for awhile but when I went to pin him on a different base, the pin popped out the side of his foot, chipping the paint and making me mad at him. He was sent to time out in a tupperware for a few months until I took him to paint day today to be based. I touched up the chipped paint (when his pin broke, I dropped him so he had a few scuffs) and made a new, simple base for him. I used the Bones jars as an accent on his base. His foot is a little wonky and I didn't want to do any more harm to him trying to straighten it so I will live with it. Besides the pinning accident, he is a very fun little guy to paint with lots of character. I was not keen to attempt more freehand than on the stripes on the pants but for someone with more confidence, his vest begs for a design! Hope you like him!
