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!

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


Comments and critiques welcome!

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

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...

      Labella DeMornay, Banshee from the first Bones kickstarter, This is a green translucent, and like all translucents I undercoated it first with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish, so the following washes would have something to adhere to. This is key to painting translucents. Also, make sure to use transparent paints, like inks and quickshade washes. Opaque paints will invariably ruin the translucent effect. The green tinge of the plastic will affect any transparent colours that are used, and so this must be taken into consideration. For her brown hair, I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade (a dark red). The skin is Citadel Casandora Yellow Shade, the dress is old Citadel Blue glaze (red flip-cap hex pot) and ditto Turquoise glaze. Taking care to draw off any pooling and to avoid unsightly tide marks by smoothing with a damp brush while wet. The aim is to tint the translucent plastic, not sp much paint over it, or even "shade" it. Not sure how pleased I am with the results here. I think the results could have been much better if the plastic was clear not green tinged.

      This minis was a kickstarter exclusive from the Mantic Kings of War second edition campaign in 2014.
      "Blaine" is a Mantic mascot of sorts. and there has been a version of him in all their own IP kickstarters apart from the vey first Kings of War. So here is him as the Fantasy Tyrant King.

      A resin special mini, there were some problems with delivery and I heard several backers never got their Blaine for some reason or other.
      I have not really had any delivery problems to speak of from any of the many Mantic kickstarters I have backed, and I obviosly got my Blaine with my shipment at the time.
      I used a bespoke 3D printed 25x50mm oval base, In retrospect I probably should have gone with a slightly larger base as it does seem a little small.

      This picture illustrates the smaller Mantic truscale as opposed to the larger Reaper heroic scale.

      Back in 2013 I came across a kickstarter campaign called "Heroes of the Dwarfs" by a small start up company called Oathsworn. The creator sculpted the models himself, and the greens on display were very oldhammery and full of character. I went in for a massive three minis, being a bit cautious at the time, what with this being a new company and all.
      They delivered in a timely fashion, the minis were great quality, and I have backed 13 out of 14 of Oathsworns campaigns since then. They continue to crank out the good stuff. They are on my short list of trusted creators, A+ will back again.

      Ingrid Deathseeker is basically your female beardless Trollslayer.
      I used one of my bespoke 3D printed 25mm round lipped bases for her.

      From the second Bones kickstarter, the Sea Hag:

      A very simple but effective paint job. I started with a black undercoat with a heavy-ish light grey zenithal primer on. I slapped some Vallejo Nocturna Natural Flesh on the lower rags and Scale75 Arbuckles Brown on the top rags. Then I sloshed CItadel Athonian Camoshade all over it, drawing off most pooling to avoid those tidemarks. Very light drybrysh with Vallejo Nocturna Cold Flesh when dry.
      The hair got a coat of Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh followed by Army Painter Dark Tone Quickshade Ink. Eyes get a dot of Citadel Wazdakka Red followed by a smaller dot of Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow.
      Base and done.
      Even though this mini is billed as a Sea Hag and she does have a slight fishy look about her, I am thinking she will be joining my Ghoul army as some sort of subleader.

      Just a few more pieces that I completed over the memorial day weekend.  The problem with these show offs is I don't usually get to post them until after the thread wraps up...
      Fun to paint and a really great sculpt, I didn't do the piece justice but I do like how it turned out.  It did give me a chance to practice my flame and yellows and reds.  Hope you like it too!
