It's been a while since I've painted a Reaper miniature, so I thought I would post my latest creation here.
I had a lot of fun painting this mini - blue is one of my favorite colors to blend with, and I enjoy painting fun hair, like her braid in the back. TMM was used on the metal.
Finished off 9 cavalry figures. They are all kitbashed from the Frostgrave female soldiers and wizards. They have been combined either with Gripping Beast Arab cavalry or with Perry Miniatures late medieval light cavalry or French dragoons. Some of the arms (in particular spear arms) are from the Oathmark elves.
The Frostgrave minis have narrower waists and go well with Perry miniatures and with the gripping beast kit. The Perry napoleonic kit has a lot of blankets and furs on the horses, and the legs are separate to the torsos and have high boots.
I was scared of painting horses but just went for ultra simple coloured undercoats and washes.
I need one more lancer to have a unit of 10. May go for a bloke for balance, and to have someone who can tackle spiders and open jars.
I realised that I had so many Frostgrave soldiers painted up that i had quite a big army for games like Saga, Warlords of Erehwon, Or even Kings of War. Am going to have a war machine with Frostgrave soldier crew, and these lancers /light cavalry.
These are the Frostgrave females, mainly, mixed with the legs and horses from Gripping Beast's Arab heavy cavalry. I cut the FG minis in half with a razor saw at the belt line and they fit the bodies perfectly. There is a Victrix cloak in there and the armoured rider has Oathmark elf arms, but essentially everything else (including the bits and pieces of luggage stuck to the horses) is from the Frostgrave females sprue.
I will probably do a black wash on the riders (not the horses) and a couple of highlights.
I need to do a snow effect base and then make up 5 more. The idea is to have a 50/50 male female unit but keep the light armour/wrapped up look.
These are from Kensei, I got them from their Kickstarter Wako vs Namban.
I used them as Conquistadores for my Lost World Project.
5 Herruelos ( Cavalry with arquebuses).
I got some great advice from @SisterMaryNapalm about the horses, I do think they look better this way.
I used resin bases and made two myself with a Rollerpin from Greenstuffworld.
