Yet Another Anhurian Spearman (77359) (Bones)

Recommended Posts

 This week I finished up the last of the Town Guard from the Bones II, Expansion 2, "Town Guard" set, by painting the Spearman figure.  There's been a number of these posted here of late, so I thought I'd add mine to the forum as well. :)
     His spear was all bent out of shape, and I tried the usual Bones boiling water straightening method to get it right again, but just wasn't able to get it perfectly straight.  While I don't mind a little "wonkiness" in a wizards staff, I felt the spear really needed to be straight.  So, I replaced the Bones spear shaft with one made from a round toothpick.  It was no problem slicing off the original shaft, drilling through the hand, and drilling a small indent in the bottom of the spear head, and then gluing it all back together again with Gorilla Superglue.

  I then did a simple tabletop paint-job on him, added an old Space Marine transfer to the shield, and based him for use with Frostgrave.

 

As always, C & C welcome.

Nicely done.

 

Need to get these along with the others for some back up NPC fodder. I'm just debating on what weapons would be the most common in a small river town run by corrupt officials.

You may well have done this and I just didn't see it, but I'd love to see a complete warband of yours.  I've loved your terrain bits and the couple of minis I've seen, but I'm gonna be that greedy kid and insist that I want the whole thing  :=)

Thanks!

It depends: are the corrupt officials maintaining the troops to protect themselves from threats both internal and external, or are the guards kept by another entity and the corrupt officious have say over their funding but also feel they might be a threat? If they are fighting brigands or pirates or such on the river, they're going to want archers and spearman to more effectively fight between boats, or defendthe docks and banks against boats. If they are well funded, add the crossbows.

No, I don't think I have posted a full one, but I don't mind doing requests. :). Oddly enough, I've painted a lot of troops for Forstgrave, but have ended up working in a number of warbands in parallel; so I don't have one fully completed all on winterized bases. I should have my first full one done by Monday, so will post a group shot for you then. :)

Nice job, especially on the weapon "swap" - I would haven't guessed just by your pictures.

Stolen ones...

      I was inspired by limey72  work doing NMM Gold on the enlarged Dwarf over in Works in Progress. I wanted to do a brass like robot or construct, so I pulled out this Golem. I also wanted to try some AK weather effect acrylic pencils I have had for a time. I think it ended with too much brown and ended up wood looking. But it has grown on me, so I will finish up his base and call it done. Hope you like it.

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
       
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

       
      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.
       

       

       
      Full frontal metal shiny.
       

       
      And rotating around for those that want to look.
       
       
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.
       

       
      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I’m working on trying to get this big guy painted to tabletop standard by the time I have to use him at our next Pathfinder D&D session to represent the Roc King on Tilagos Island in the Demiplane of Last Resort, in the Age of Worms adventure path.

      Painted up these 8 unrelated barbarians as a clan for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Tried my hand at non-metallic metal again. This is the result. :)
