From JuanM: Hammer of Gobbos EDITED! (6 Points)



After a short break celebrating Christmas Day, here is my next entry in The Challenge, Brynda the Beautiful (because she is not bearded, I think), a female Dwarf warrior from Red Box Games/Haslefree Miniatures.





She is another small gem from Tre Manor´s hands whose painting I have enjoyed a lot. The base is from Scibor Miniatures.

Here is another picture of the shield with an small Smaug in the middle of a barbecue:


This brave small warrior can give me 5 points, I think. Some more lead in my fight with Phil...

Nice one  Juan! She is a lovely casting to be sure. I like the armour colour you've given her. It reminds me of Boromir's from The Lord of the Rings. 

This figure will give you a base of 5 points but I'm throwing in another for the excellent painted shield design. Lovely work Juan -  Three entries in a week?! You're on fire!

  1. Lovely brushwork Juan! I'm struggling to decide whether I think the cloak or the shield is more impressive but I think I'll give up and say I really like them both.

    1. Thanks, Michael. I must admit I like a lot the shield... because I was not sure about what I was painting until almost the end...

    1. Yes, an small Valkyrie, I think. There are some very nice Dwarves in the catalogue.

  8. Really fine mini, Juan! Cloak and sheild are both aces, the base really helps her pop too!

    1. Thanks, Ian. The cloak has been painted with a Foundry triad, "French Blue", I think.

  14. I particularly like the color on the hair--blonde is a tricky color to get right, in my experience. Great work, as always!
