From JuanM - Assorted Figures (30 Points)

Hello, my friends!
I´m here again, after the full-of-frantic-activities "IV Hispania Wargames". My club presented there a new Thirty Years War ruleset, "Tercios", and Lord Campbell himself was there, commanding a Swedish Brigade:

More in my blog :)
About The Challenge, I have been painting some more figures for my main 2015 projects:






1.- Four Seasons (or Fourth Season), a veteran sailor enjoying his retirement in that pleasant Pacific island. He is going to be a source of information. A 28mm miniature from Pulp Figures.






2.- Mr. Kurt, a veteran ex-German sailor. Perhaps the old German u-boote sunken off shore was his last command... Another Pulp Figures miniature.





3.- The Innocent Native. From Pulp Figures. Is she innocent?






4.- Searching in my Lead Big Box, I have found a shipment of Haslefree Miniatures figures. One of them, this not too healthy zombie I have painted for my "Akula´s Zombies" games. A great miniature, full of bites.




5.- And then, a problem. There were some Fantasy miniatures in that shipment, one of them, this great dwarf warrior. Probably, I´m going to change the range of figures I´m going to use in my Fantasy project, because these figures from Haslefree Miniatures are very nice and more dynamic than those from Scibor. He can be Nori, I think.




6.- Yes, a big problem but one very easy to solve. This is a goblin warrior from Haslefree Miniatures, one I like a lot and with a flesh tone I´m happy with. I think I´m going to have some painted Scibor Miniatures for sale soon...

We are approaching the last week of this fantastic Challenge, and I expect to reach my mark of 500 points. In the meantime, I´m learning a lot from all of you, my friends.

Cheers!


From Curt:

Lovely work Juan! Your 'Pulp in the Pacific' project is coming along beautifully with many interesting characters beginning to populate your storyline. The old veteran is suitably weather beaten and I really like the pattern on the Innocent Native's dress. Really smashing stuff. I look forward to watching this project develop after the Challenge concludes.

I'm also really enjoying your work on these recent goblin figures - the flesh tone is wonderful and I also really like the metalwork.

Finally, congratulations on your club's fine work at the Hispania show. Can you tell me if 'Tercio' is available in English? Did Campbell do his name proud or make a complete hash of it? Actually, don't tell me, I think I have an idea... ;)

Well done Juan!

  1. What a fabulous assortment you have for us today. You know how much I enjoy your work on the Pulp Figures and these do not disappoint. I like what you did with the dress for the "Innocent" Native. Those flowers are perfect.

  4. Those are all very beautiful work, Juan! From goblin skin, to pretty girl's dress, to the craggy old sailor! I like the old salt, my back feels like his does this morning! ;)

  7. Fantastic submission all round! The flowers you've painted on the native girls wrap dress are a real corker.

  8. Curt, they are working now in a translation to English language of the ruleset. Lord Campbell had a very quiet battle, I think, without combat in his part of the field...
    A true survivor...

  9. Lovely collection of miniatures.
    The floral pattern on the innocent island maiden's dress is especially well done.
    And yes, I'm sure she's innocent. :)
