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...

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...


Thanks for looking!

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...

      Good day everyone, here are pictures of 77105, Kagunk "Voorhees" the Ogre Chieftain sculpted by Tre Manor. This is the Bones version of the model.
      I added the axe blade on its spiked club, mounted it on a 2 inches square base and painted it with Reaper MSP paint.

      Hi everyone, after sitting five months on the shelf, that being the projet (not me)  I finally found time to complete my Gnolls display base. The base is 7.25 inches x 11 inches wide. Here are some pictures.
      Other pictures of the Gnolls can be found here.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of my Gnoll hunting party. All of them are Reaper Miniatures Gnolls, painted with Reaper Master Series Paints. I added the archer's bowstring and converted two models (see last picture).
      I will now work on a display base for them.

      It has been a while since I painted anything. A combination of my arms acting up again and my just not feeling it. Call it the recurring fallow season.
      So I am getting back on track with some Orcs.  These are partly from the first Bones kickstarter and partly from the third. All together a nice band of 10.
      There are nine different orcs that are variants made on only two basic bodies, plus a singular warchief that I think fits in with the lot of them.
      I originally based them on 40mm round bases with sloped edges, the thinner-than-citadel knockoff ones. But there was always something not quite right about them, the bases were simply too large for the minis. So off they came. I ended up with making 37mm 3D-printed ones instead. I think they fit well on these minis.

      lots of pictures below
