The Al Fasid, also known as "The Corrupted", are HaqqIslam's heavy troopers that will get the job done no matter the cost. Their methods aren't always the prettiest, and they're never the stealthiest, and they have their own tricks they bring with them to the table. They don't care about glory, and are solely chosen for their solid record of getting the job done. Some enjoy it, some are in it for the solid paycheque, and others do it because the only thing theyy know what to do is fight. Today I have the HMG version, who also conveniently carries a grenade launcher that can shoot either regular grenades to keep enemy heads down, or smoke grenades to provide additional cover. Oh, they also pack anti-personnel mines with them too...
Since the "tactical rock" under his right foot kind of looked rather strikingly like the backpack for a Yu Jing (even though I'm not having any luck finding models to confirm this), I decided to try and test out my planned colour scheme for them. That's right, I'll be going with a dark raver / cyberpunk burnt neon pink for their general colour, because why not - I'm going with hot orange for my Haqq...
What is a faux-prehistoric setting without Cavemen? The stereotypical fur-clad, monosyllabic unwashed barbarian that whacks a woman over the head with a club and then drags her by the hair into a cave?
Or at least, sporting the "cave man" look that was popularised in The Flintstones and The Far Side.
The reason these types are prehistoric lies in the name. Pre-history, as in "before recorded time". Which really is most of time.
We don't really know all that much about prehistoric man other than what can be gleaned through archeology. We do know that there existed several different sub-species of humans concurrently up to about 50.000 years ago. Neanderthals would be one such sub-species, the Hobbits (Homo Florensis) another.
Then we (or something) killed off all the others. Some evidence of interspecies breeding is still to be found in our modern DNA.
#628-631 These were only shown as silhouettes in the KS.
From left to right: Shaman. clubber, spearman, archer.
These are technologically advanced cavemen, as shown by their use of the bow.
The Shaman. I call him Barney. He succeeded in the Quest for Fire.
The clubber, Thag Simmons. He will be known to posterity by the manner of his demise. (Should have stayed clear of the tail end of that Stegosaur.)
Fred, the spearman. Used stones of flint to make a sharp spearhead.
Archie the bowman. His right hand strategically placed to hide his embarrassing lack of arrows from the others.
These were simple and fun to do in regular paints on a black undercoat.
I come in search of the answer to the Riddle of Steel! What do you know about it?
These minis were finished June 14th 2020.

As a change of pace from the Hard Mode Challenge, this round will have a Skill Challenge.
May and June 2019 Challenge
Your challenge is: 9!
Bonus Challenge: The First!
"Mayday!" is an international distress signal used in verbal communication in ships and aircraft. Your first bonus challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to paint a miniature in some distress. This could be a diorama, an adventurer falling into a trap, villian whose weapon just broke, or anything else your mind can conjure.
Bonus Challenge: The Second!
The Solstices: June marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere. Paint a miniature or a pair of miniatures showcasing this duality.
Skill Challenge: OSL
Try your hand at painting a miniature using OSL or Object-Source Lighting. If you feel like this is something that is already in your wheelhouse, work on your technical skills in another area. Practice NMM, TMM, wet-blending, sculpting, or anything else you've been meaning to try.
As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
Here is another wizard from the Greybeards subset of the Bones 4 Core set. This one does have a metal version (SKU 03953) and was sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I had fun with this figure. I love the character in these wizard figures. This one is strongly reminiscent of Gandalf. Though I resisted the temptation to go grey I did sneak Gandalf's rune onto the medallion on the back of his hat.
