1/72 Fantasy —September 2022 Travel Painting

This past month was so-so for painting.  My multipurpose desk was generally cluttered with stuff other than painting, but I did have the opportunity to take a 10 day business trip which included a (mostly) non-work weekend.  I packed up my travel paint kit and some 1/72 plastics destined for the “portable fantasy campaign”.

 

I took a couple of things that had been bugging me, and got two of three of those grouping painted: a Dark Alliance orc warband of 8 and a baggage train group of cows. The trio of mounted knights remains “to do”. While in Tooele, Utah (pronounced 2-Ella, in case you’re curious), I stopped in at Game Haven, the FLGS there. I ended up with a Nolzur’s “Black Dragon Wyrmling” which looked to my eye to be about right for the 1/72 figures.  It came with a giant’s skull objective marker, so I painted that too.

In addition to the figures on group bases, I have a collection of individuals.  These are as small as I am willing to play with so mounted.  I finished up a few of them as well, a mixed bag of Caesar, Strelets, and Dark Alliance figures.

For this forum, here’s the obligatory size comparison shot:

Great-looking bunch. I really like that barbarian-looking fellow in the middle of the shot of individuals. The fur and highlighting are great, especially when you take the smaller scale into consideration.

 

The orc warband is cool, too. The group has an inherent chaos to it, (as is appropriate for an orc warband), but your highlighting and detail work help to make them pop as distinct individuals.

 

Love the rest, as well. Especially the dragon.

These look great Rob. I really like the belted cattle. 

 

I was commenting, while on my trip, to my wife that I wasn’t sure how I wanted to paint the cows.  She suggested the belted cow idea.  She rarely takes an interest in what I’m painting, so I looked this up.

I thought that looked pretty straightforward, and I wanted to incorporate her input.

Thanks!  The barbarian is from the Dark Alliance Cimmerians Set 1, and is one of the less over-the-top figures there.  He was fun to do, and there may eventually be a small warband of them somewhere in my campaign, from beyond the edges of the map.

 

I see that Citrine painted the same dragon this week.
