From AnneO'L - Frostgrave Big Bernard (5pts)

It would appear as if I have been bitten by the Frostgrave bug.  It's a virulent disease with no known cure.  The CDC has been quoted as saying "It's a pandemic.  Efforts at developing a vaccine are futile as this thing has a rate of mutation unlike anything we've ever seen. Gamers are being urged to stay off the internet in order to avoid exposure."

It's too late for me folks so here is the first member of my Frostgrave Warband.

He's from Red Box Games, is 32mm and was sculpted by Tre Manor.




These are beautiful sculpts and an absolute pleasure to paint.  The detail is crisp, there were no mold lines and very little flash.

This is my final entry for this years Challenge.  Out of the three years I have participated, this has been the most fun for me. There have been some spectacular entries by so many people and I am mightily impressed with the lot of you.

Let me thank our beloved SnowLord for all his time, effort and patience in putting this thing together for another year.  The Minions have been a great addition to this years Challenge, each with their own unique style.  To my adjudicator Peter-it has been great getting to know you and I appreciate everything you have done for the Monday Crew.

See you all next year!

Lovely, lovely work Anne. You've made Bernard come alive with your brushwork here. I love his striped underjerkin and I like how you've aproached his leather hauberk with those marvelous warm grey-brown tones. Fabulous.

It's been a pleasure to have you with us again, Anne. Your skill with both brush and paint, along with your encouraging words, always leaves a wonderful impression. I hope we can all do it again next December.

  6. Fantastic level of painting. The scale seems pretty "true" as well, which is a nice change from lots of the things I paint.
