 I've come to the conclusion over the years that a lot of the older figures that look a bit more "stylized" compared to the modern realism really need to be painted in the "old-skool" style... Dipping and drybrushing as artistic choices and a certain almost impressionist feel to the paintjob just seems to work better with some of the older sculpts than trying to go for high detail and seamless blending.

Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things

Exactly!!  This dude looks great.  Many of us sometimes allow ourselves to forget, the hobby is supposed to be fun and stress relieving.  Tabletop level painted minis not only provide that quick fun, but bring joy to others in a game.  Good work!  I have a handful of Heritage minis that are about to get the same level of painting.

      You'll take my life, but I'll take yours too
      You'll fire your musket, but I'll run you through
      So when you're waiting for the next attack
      You'd better stand, there's no turning back
       

       
      I'm going to be building/converting/sculpting my own copy of Eddie from this artwork. I'm just going to do the central figure, not the battlefield around him.
       
      For those who don't know, the song 'The Trooper' is based on the Charge of the Light Brigade, an action during the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War.
       
      So, before I get started, a question:
       
      The artist who did this piece (Derek Riggs) applied a little creative license to the flag that Eddie is carrying. It is not historically accurate to the best of my knowledge and research. If you know differently, please enlighten me.
       
      When I get to that point, do I try to recreate the flag as seen in the artwork, or go with something a little more accurate? Or is that a detail that most people will not notice?

      Here's 2 beetle swarms that I knocked out pretty quick this weekend. 
       
      One basic brown, and the other with a more metallic look to them.
       
      Let me know what you think.

      I finished Mason Thornwarden a little earlier today. He's painted up to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard. I've been reading a lot about Rangers of Shadowdeep on various blogs all over the internet; I can neither confirm nor deny that is what may have led to his selection for the paintbrush.
       
      Let me know what you think of him, please.

      This was a fun and easy paint job. He comes with a variety of arms and weapon options so you can customize the figure. (and the extra arms are nice for conversions)

      I finally managed to climb back on the painting horse. I painted this vampire to my usual tabletop standard. He'll be the leader for a Mordheim/Frostgrave/random skirmish game warband.
