Yup another project, as if I didn't have enough on my hands. This will take a while, but I will start again. A few decades ago ( before I roamed this Forum) I created a Barbarian Army with Animal allies. I sold it and all I have left are these tiny pics that show only part of it. Also, this was decades ago so I didn't paint as well as I do today ( or at least I think so) Here are the old pics as appetizers, I will soon start the new army. Enjoy!
We are going to visit my BILs home next week so I wanted to make something to thank them. Fortunately his wife adores penguins so an idea was born. On the ice flows of the Antarctic the penguins fight a constant war of survival. But when things look grim and the darkest night seems to turn against them one penguin will rise above the others to smite their foes and have the way through the darkness. When she appears the others are driven to seek out the ancient battle gear, the location passed down by generations of penguins and like drones they come to anoint their emperor and dress him to do battle with his foes... On a side note, the bonsium in bones 4 is much harder to cut and I am afraid I made a rather large offering to the blood god of miniatures. Fortunately I didn't nick any of the working bits. Unfortunately it was close and I am going to feel it in the morning.
Batman: Gotham City Chronicles - Mission 2 "Deadly Infection" has the Penguin and Doctor Death trying to do something evil while some version of Batman and two of his allies try to stop them. I'm not terribly familiar with Doctor Death, and I couldn't find too many good pictures of him online, so I just went with a zombie-ish look. The Penguin was also a little tricky, but for the opposite reason. He has been around for a while and has a slew of looks. Although I was planning on sticking to the Batman Animated Series as a baseline, I found the color scheme for the Penguin there a bit bland. Other versions of the Penguin have a lot more purple, so used purple for his pants, tie and hatband. And I figured if the Penguin wold wear purple, it would be Imperial Purple, of course. I didn't have much luck with his monocle, but its good enough for tabletop. Out of the available heroes, I painted Batman Year 100 and the two Robins. I'm not too familiar with Batman Year 100 either, but he seems a bit like a vampire, so I went in that direction with very little color. I took the Robins looks from the Batman Animated Series, pretty much. The Damian Wayne look with the yellow down the front I was particularly happy with. He should have more yellow outlining, but I decided to stop before I ruined it. And apologies again for the glare. I glossed these minis up before I decided to photograph them all. The next set will be better, I swear! Batman Year 100, aka Vampire Batman Robin (Tim Drake) Robin (Damian Wayne) Doctor Death (I presume) The Penguin. He was actually a bit more fun to paint than I anticipated.
