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.

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

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  :=)

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. :)

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.

      When the Space Pope absolutely needs someone to die very publicly and messily, he calls upon the services of a Mother Superior.
      One woman armies with no regard for the collateral damage they cause, towns, cities (and, according to legend, the occasional planet) are reduced to ruins as the Mother Superior single-mindedly pursues her target.
      Often the eternal struggle to protect Mankind from the Horrors that lurk beyond the stars requires subtlety, but occasionally, you want to send a stonking great message about the consequences of meddling with things you don't understand. 
       
      Presenting a Mother Superior (AKA Morvenn Vahl, a hero from Warhammer 40k's Sisters of Battle faction), a terrifyingly unstoppable force of divine judgement.
       
      Bit of a mixed bag this one, I'm happy with a lot of it, but some bits could be better (like the terrible job I did on her face). At least she's finally done now.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:
