Hi, so I am starting that scene that I had in mind..( still working at finishing my last Wizkids monk figure by the way ). All Reaper minis, finally I can get to what I received couple week ago :D Beastman Champion : 77254 Crusader Champion : 77550 Sigurd Viking : 77399 Ogre Clubber : 77454 Those are the 4 protagonist of that scene. I set my size to be 190mm x 19mm x 200mm , just so I can fit that later in the display box I can get here. Though this is not set in stone regarding the environment , I certainly going to go for a rocky / snowy landscape. for now I just put my set in place for the overall position of each figure. This is going to be a long project I think :D but hopefully end up well !
I may have "disappeared" for a while. However, I still kept my eye on what was coming out from time to time, and I've always watched the Kickstarters with interest. So when these new Crusader sculpts showed up in whichever Bones Kickstarter they were presented in (3? Yeah, pretty sure it was 3), it kicked me straight in the nostalgia feels. The fact that the new ones are about 1000% more impressive than the old Warlord Knights, Unforgiven, and Ironspines really added to that. Because as expansive as my old Crusader army was, it probably would have been even bigger (because why not just entirely miss the point of a skirmish game, right Kel?) if the grunts of the faction looked like this. I really didn't like the old Crusader grunts all that much, and painting them was somewhat a chore. And then I forgot about them, and went on with my life. Until I saw this fella at my FLGS yesterday. Boom, instant nostalgia strikes again and I say to myself "one more, for old times sake". So I picked him up for a low-low price (gotta love Bones pricing), got him home, spent way too long straightening a very bent sword (gotta be ambivalent about Bones material), and then took the day and well, started and finished painting him up! And since I was kicking it old-school I decided that I would do ****-all with the pudding-base besides paint it and add some static grass. The result was oddly satisfying, actually. So, for your consideration: one more. For old time's sake.
