February, already?!!! (25 Points)


Oh my God!!! I have been planning my new terrain board and not painting enough!

We are now in February and I have been unable to paint many figures. In fact, I have my painting table full of half finished models!

Well, at least I have been able to paint some miniatures:




Here is Guillermo form Haslefree Miniatures. A very wealthy barbarian warrior I have been able to finish after a year waiting for its base. Of course, he cannot take part in this Challenge (I began him during the last Challenge...), but I like a lot the model and my painting work on him!



With him there are two new Red Box Games undead souls. All of these models are wonderful miniatures and I´m now in the middle of a problem. I don´t like to mix figures from different manufactures in the same project, so I have some models from Haslefree Miniatures and Red Box Games waiting for my decision. I think I´m going to test "Open Combat" with the Haslefree Miniatures models, they are a bit more solid than the other ones for the game table.



With my choice made, here is Boudie, a young witch  who has Guillermo as her private army. She is a very nice model from Haslefree Miniature.


With her there are the first two models from another very interesting project, a mix of Call of Cthulhu and Pulp I expect to prepare for our club´s new local. I´m going to use the Pulp Figures models I began to paint during the last Challenge, with a lot more I have in my painting box.
As I've said before, these models are a pleasure to paint.

So 25 points for me, I think. Not enough to win my side battle with Phil. He has been very prolific this year, painting really nice figures, but next year will be different!

Cheers!

Lovely, lovely work Juan. Your painting is always excellent, but you've really been hitting these Red Box figures out of the park this year - fantastic stuff. I love the horns on the viking's helmet, and those undead look wonderfully desiccated and macabre.
From my calculations, with this entry included, you have 71 points and Phil is sitting at 90. Now, we'll just have to wait to see if Phil has something new for us today that will bring him to victory, or we'll have to wait until next week to see what happens. I'm wiggling my seat in anticipation!

  2. Glorious brushwork Juan! Love the horns on that helmet. So wonderfully impractical... :-)

    1. Yes, Michael, that helmet must be a bit difficult to wear in a fight...

  4. Guillermo should be OK as long as he doesn't fight in forests or narrow corridors.

    Simply amazing work, Juan, your work on the barbarian's armour is especially good, while the clothing on the sailor and explorer chaps is expertly rendered.

    Well done!

  8. Awesome lot, Juan! Guillermo is my fav of the bunch as his armour looks grand with the shading. But those pulp figures are very well done. Between the work of you and Curt, I'm really thinking about getting a few.
