Crowley's Dreadmere: Mercenaries

Recommended Posts

Somehow I ended up with 2 sets of 03793: Townsfolk of Dreadmere: Mercenaries (3) by Bob Ridolfi, and another on the way with Bones 4. Figured these 3 (x2) would be a good set to start the year with. 


After a good wash and scrub, they were glued onto the last of my round Reaper bases (really like this style base) and proceed with Reaper brush on white primer. I then used Tanned Shadow and Ruddy Flesh for their faces and hands.IMG_20190105_171635.thumb.jpg.9f9b566a6affb271fb3ce46177d83818.jpg


Then used a variety of browns plus muddy Olive and burgundy wine, Black and linen white... IMG_20190105_194300__01.thumb.jpg.24a808364d35e88f8539acb75207f57e.jpg

Purple guy thinks he's extra fancy



One of these two has their beanie baby collection in their satchel.



Mr Jedi with an ax to grind amuses me.


More to come!

Whoa - how did you get those bases in Yellow and blue? 

You're off to a good start. 

They were available as freebies at ReaperCon a few years back. They had ziplock bags of random bases in various colors. 


And thanks!

Picking up from where I left off, I spent most of my time cleaning up the sloppy blocking in I'd done.




I also went and hit a bunch of little details. There are just enough on these guys to really bring out their personality, without overwhelming them. Above you can see how the straps, belts, and sheaths have all been painted or blocked in, and the boots are all painted as well. While I was at it I should have painted the bases...




Because you can sort of see the white under the flock... Thankfully the addition of MOAR FLOCK seems to mostly deal with that issue. 




I think I managed to give them all a fair bit of personality, and even different personalities between the same mini.




The metal was all painted with either Aged Pewter or Dragon Bronze, and in general I tried to make it so that what was bronze on one version of the mini was pewter on the other.


While none of them will win any contests, they're done and I'm thrilled with how they came out.

      Here is a figure I painted up as a character in what my group calls "the B team adventure" - which revolves around the supporting cast for a more standard party. She is the cook/maid. I like the townsfolk from the WIzkids set a lot better than the other humanoids I have painted from them, like the elves. They have a lot of character which makes up for the sometimes shallow detail. I'm proud of this one because she basically had no face and I painted one on with fair success I think.

      was having trouble even picking colors for the sage, then the name Beesbury wandered though my head.  
      lets try some free hand! 
      Old Nan was just a quick study.  mostly the bone triad, and then 4 different browns.
      Next up ill pint the male beggar with a 4 color pallet,  I bet it will be just as effective.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the third and last of the 06143, Tomb Guards sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This is the metal version from the Nefsokar Warlord Army Packs. I kept my favorite of the three for last.
