So I'm going to see if putting together a diary helps me with motivation in getting this army completed in time for a tournament in January 2020.
First of all, the idea - in Canberra, Australia we have a convention (Cancon) every January, it's been going for something like 30+ years, and for about the last decade we've had a WarGods tournament running.
After a Kickstarter I have an Amazon warband sitting in bare metal so I decided that for 2020 I'll take that Warband. First of all I have to work out the army list, then prepare the models for painting.
So, onto the army list:
Amazon Demigod of Hecate, Ka 2, second Ka power Skin of Marble
Still have to work out what to equip her with, but with the Ka power she can't take armour...
13 Hellhounds - using Reaper's WarPugs - 12 War Pugs based in pairs with a Reaper Foo Dog as the leader
5 x Outriders - Horse Archers
5 x Outriders - Horse Archers
12 x Peltasts
Mother of Serpents (effectively a Minoan snake priestess)
That takes me to about 905 from a maximum of 1750 points, so I'll need to work out what to use the remaining points for, I do need to take some basic warriors, which will set me back 25pts/model (so I can potentially take 30 of them), and I may take some Raiders instead of outriders (they are spear-armed cavalry)
Anyway, I'll try and get some photos of the basic models tomorrow and go from there...
So here is my rendition of a figure from Crocodile Games, Hecate sculpted by Chris Fitzpatrick. She's a bit bare chested, so you can see a shot of her front here:
and here is her view from behind:
So just finished this one up last night, Artemis from the most recent Kickstarter of Crocodile Games, sculpted by Chris FitzPatrick. Not adding any pictures from behind as don't want to violate any policies on unclothedness, hopefully the pictures I chose were all right.
So really enjoyed painting this one up, as there was very little metal I had to worry about. Actually the most difficult or time consuming part on this one was the straps on her sandals and then the design on her cloak which was not freehand but actually sculpted on to the cloak. Overall very nice figure I think to paint and it's a nice larger scale, so the face and eyes were pretty easy to work on.
So just finished this one last night, took a slight detour from the Ral Partha I've been working on for a while (or forever?). With the last Partha Elves I did from the TSR D & D series, I really got into Chris Fitzpatrick's work, who sculpts beautifully, and got some of his new Olympus figures from his company Crocodile Games. This one is the Oracle of Delphi from his last Kickstarter, where he is adding on to his Olympian Gods series. Beautiful figures, and a bit larger than what I'm used to painting. I'm not complaining though, bigger canvas is a little bit easier to work with!
