The Fund Goal.

 

Please help TAG launch its range of Halfling Militia Rooster Riders, by backing our latest campaign, here on Chickstarter!

 

To Fund this expansion of the White Knights Miniature Imperium, we are looking to raise £500 to help us to bring these 16 new miniatures to life. This poultry sum covers the cost of the production moulding of the 8 new packs of new 28mm sized, pewter miniatures.

I backed TAGs last KS for their Dwarves which went nice and smoothly and has delivered to everybody before the due day (last few shipments just going out but they'll be in peoples hands before June which was the target)

 

The minis were well cast and nice and characterful

 

so if you need some Halfling chicken riders (or just some riding chickens) or some of their existing Halfling militia on foot which can also be selected as a reward get your pledging card out and jump in

My wife (and mother-in-law) are collectors of chicken-art. Trying to decide if I can get away with giving either of them these to set about their home.

I suppose Rooster Rider sounds better than (another word for rooster ::o:) Rider.

 

Definitely cool figures.  Quirky projects like this are why I enjoy Kickstarter.

*sigh*

It's times like this that I wish I didn't have to read through all the kickstarter threads.

Now to find if there's a way to work halfing chicken riders into the budget.

They look very characterful indeed.

 

I backed TAG's Tudor, Valois and Hapsburg KS because I thought the figures looked terrific and I really wanted their figures of Tudor royalty. Unfortunately it didn't fund. ::(:

 

This one doesn't look like it's having that problem.

I don't like this style of halfling .. and yet I want a chicken....

 

Think of it as halflings riding raptors.

Considering Halflings eating habits, isn't this a little like having Halflings riding around on pizzas?

      Lardgulp I painted for my FLGS's painting club.

      continuing my quest to paint down some of my metal mountain of dragons is my second Green Dragon II from Grenadier.  I wound up with multiple copies of this dragon (I wont say how many but i still have another in its original box...) so when i noticed that i had primed this one a while ago, i decided to try the painting method from Mocha's painting a Rocky class during Reapercon (thanks @Mocha I am getting a lot of use out of that technique and it has definitely helped me with contrast in everything I paint) of starting with the darkest colors and working up to the brightest.  This is the result of my trial with the dragon of the month series .  I decided that since they liked swamps and other watery environments, i would give her a bed of dry river rocks in an underground cave.  (hey everyone likes a comfy bed but nobody really likes a wet bed!) so i started with the base the miniature came with and expanded from there bringing the rocks out from there.  The first pass had them all a monotone color which left the base looking almost black and white against the green dragon.  Interesting but not what i wanted.  Some colored inks later and we have a nice bed of various colored rocks!




       
      She comes out really vibrant with lots of shadow and contrast really nice!  About my only fault is i haven't given much thought to handling a different colored belly scale and how a significantly lighter scale would work given the steady darkening as the light lowers past the widest parts of the model. Oh well, maybe next time.
       
      For comparison, this is the same dragon I did about a decade ago:


       
      I like both but i dont have to guess about which one will catch the most attention, even though it took far less time and skill.  I am happy to give both of them a home, though i should probably give the older one a new base and maybe fix a few of his chips and dings (honorably gotten eating unwary PCs and their horses!)
       
      Hope you enjoy them!

      As the year wears on i continue to complete my personal challenge of 12 dragons in 12 months.  (I have to go count but i think i am there...  not sure though so I keep it up!)  this is another oldie but goodie from the third Dragon of the month series by Grenadier.  this was the January offering, the black dragon.  I decided that this dragon liked his underground layer so the base is done as a broken river skree.  the large open space made me add a small geode, just to see if i could do it.
       



       
      The dragon is painted with dark blacks and Purple shadow (which actually looks darker than the black so there!)  Then i used some new wax paints i acquired to bring up the colors on the highlights to give him a shiny scale and brightness.  I think this is the first time i have created a dragon that actually looks black but still has lots of texture and contrast. 
       
      Again congrats to grenadier for acquiring some really lovely sculpts and turning them out back when high definition was not a popular feature.  there is a lot to see on this dragon, right down to the small row of teeth that line the edges of his closed mouth.  I had a lot of fun painting him.  I hope you enjoy him too!

      Simple paint job for the Mushroom King. I wanted it to be all white, like a typical mushroom from your refrigerator, but that was way too boring. But I do like the small pops of color here and there. 
      As always comments and critiques welcomed and encouraged!
