I may have "disappeared" for a while. However, I still kept my eye on what was coming out from time to time, and I've always watched the Kickstarters with interest.
So when these new Crusader sculpts showed up in whichever Bones Kickstarter they were presented in (3? Yeah, pretty sure it was 3), it kicked me straight in the nostalgia feels. The fact that the new ones are about 1000% more impressive than the old Warlord Knights, Unforgiven, and Ironspines really added to that. Because as expansive as my old Crusader army was, it probably would have been even bigger (because why not just entirely miss the point of a skirmish game, right Kel?) if the grunts of the faction looked like this. I really didn't like the old Crusader grunts all that much, and painting them was somewhat a chore.
And then I forgot about them, and went on with my life. Until I saw this fella at my FLGS yesterday. Boom, instant nostalgia strikes again and I say to myself "one more, for old times sake". So I picked him up for a low-low price (gotta love Bones pricing), got him home, spent way too long straightening a very bent sword (gotta be ambivalent about Bones material), and then took the day and well, started and finished painting him up! And since I was kicking it old-school I decided that I would do ****-all with the pudding-base besides paint it and add some static grass. The result was oddly satisfying, actually.
So, for your consideration: one more. For old time's sake.
Apparently his name is Siguard. I really liked the way the detail on this figure came out in bones.
somehow he really caught my eye and was the first figure from the set that I did not have a specific reason to paint, he just looked fun.
But I kind of painted him monochrome, and I got bored. So he sat on my table for a while, as I mostly worked on bones2 stuff - or dragons or a giant.
finally got back around to him today to finish him at least to a reasonable level.
did I really not notice those were fingernails?
what kind of glove has fingernails? bother.
