So I did not get these guys during the kickstarter, thinking that the guys with the shields would be more appropriate for Frostgrave, as I did NOT have the rule book at the time....
So I got them later, when I found out that the Njorn Hirdmen were a LOT more expensive!


Another batch of things primed to start base coating at paint day tomorrow!








These guys come in 4 parts, heads, bodies, right and left hands / weapons.

Kind of fiddly assembly, and some green stuff gap filling required.....


Thanks for looking!

Started at Paint day, and now more work...


Common Colors

SC75 Black and Brown Leathers on their boots

GW Scorched Brown, VMC Ivory in their eyes

We are in a very ugly stage right now, with lots of touch ups needed....

MSP Walnut Brown on Fur

WC Warm Grey on pants


My thought here is that the thugs, while recruited from the same place the band comes from, no one was sorry to see them go....

So there will be some common colors used across the band as a whole, as befits people who are buying clothes in the same place...

The thugs however, being basically loners, will have different colors to show that they are a bit different from the rest of the band

And I like the ideas you have for the clothing colors; can't wait to see how it looks in the end.

WC Blue Grey 5 to his leg wraps

SC75 Deep Red & Mojave White on his Sleeves


The reason for the Mojave White is to try to make the clothing look faded...

So some more work on these guys...


Basically, I touched up their faces with VMC Ivory for their Iris, SC F&G Decay Black for their Pupils, and SC75 Arabic shadow to clean up afterwards...


They then all got the next stage of paint on their clothing by using the previous color with the next lighter color at a 50% mix....

This would be tunics, pants, leggings, cowls/hoods etc

All the guys with "Toothache cloths" (the wrap from under their chins) were done with SC75 Sahara Yellow


A few got some extra things...

He got MSP Blond Shadow on face fur, and SC75 Pink Flesh in his mouth

He got named "Squint-Eye" as I like his right eye, and the left is pretty much now a slit....

He also got  SC75 Pink Flesh in his mouth

His armor did NOT get the 50% mix step up

His fur was done with GW Fortress Grey, and then a wash of the "Unknown Recipe" fur wash...

He got Named "Beeker" because of his hair, which started with MSP Auburn Shadow

and his fur got GW Scorched Brown...


Thanks for looking!

All of them stepped up to the 'pure' #4 color, or the equivalent on all clothing except furs...

      Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set.

      click for close ups and all that
    • By Maledrakh
      Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals?

      These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously they sell well), but as such they should fit well with my existing Lord of the Rings Moria Goblin army I am slowly growing for Kings of War.  I have based them on my 3D printed 20mm round bases, the Bones 3 ones have a slightly different style as I have since developed the design, making the later types more hollowed out so I can avoid the minis always standing on a hilltop.

      36 goblins are quite a handful to deal with all at once. Being nickled and dimed to death, or experiencing death by a thousand cuts as it were, is still dead.

      Goblin Luggits are the ones with two handed weapons in Kings of War Vanguard

      Goblin Spitters are the bowmen in Kings of War Vanguard

      The rest are just Rabble (in Kings of War Vanguard)
      I generally do not like painting identical minis identically, so I switch things up slightly by painting each set of different sculpts in a different base colour, and randomly do the other bits. I keep some bits the same throughout, such as the weapons, shields, or helmets, and also have used the same strong quickshade ink and a very light drybrush with Team Yankee Maverick Khaki, a mid-to-light beige-ish green on all the minis.
      This together with the bases give the entire group a cohesive feel, so they appear as a unit while still retaining a sense of individuality,
      These are really quite quick to paint, just alot of them to do. I did them in between bouts of playing Payday 2 over the last couple of days.

      I am the Lord of Darkness.
      I require the solace of the shadows,
      and the dark of the night.
      Sunshine is my destroyer.
      All this shall change.
      Tonight, the sun sets forever
      There shall never be another dawn!
      thus begins the 1985 Fantasy movie Legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring a very young Tom Cruise and the excellent Tim Curry. If you have not seen this movie, do so right away. A classic Fantasy, in several ways.

      I have not really had the inclination to paint much the last few weeks, such is the way of the world.
      Picking up the brush again, we start with another one from the first Bones kickstarter that as been cluttering up my painting desk in a half-done state since whenever.

      Tre manor is at it again...   
      Another well-designed warband.    
      Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures.
