Group two of batch one. Again, a mix. A few of these I've had for decades, while others are recent acquisitions from various cons and larger batches on eBay.
I liked how this shield turned out, and the figure is pretty nice, too (Asgard, maybe?)
This chap was a bit odd looking. But it is his shield that caught my eye. It has a horses head and I originally was just going to do boring old Rohirrim white on green, but then I noticed it looks a lot more like a chess piece. Thus, I got a little inspiration and did a checkered pattern (with the horse inverted on it)
My first week was the Silent Sisters. I needed a captain for those lovely ladies and settled on this one. She looks a lot fancier and better armed, appropriate for their captain; of course, she is sans eyeballs. There'll be some more related to that sub-project as the challenge goes on.
Some of the troops from the back. The woman on the far right is the same as the Silent Sisters (Asgard/Viking Forge). I did this one as a normal adventuress, though.
Batch two I just finished up under the wire. Once again, a really mixed lot that's all over the map.
These two feisty ladies are from the same line as the Captain above, I think, but I did them as straightforward warriors (i.e. with their eyes intact).
From the back. They are really simple but I like how they turned out.
These two rather rudimentary figures I decided to use for practice in painting striped pants. I like how they turned out and will be doing that more often.
A bard and a Saxon.
Ah, it wouldn't be Friday without a big Keith mixed bag of DnD-style fantasy minis. My favourite this week is definitely the very jolly Middle East-style lady warrior, with her dainty spear. And the red Ral Partha wizard, with the cute dragon familiar on his shoulder. I'm a bit concerned at how skinny those other ladies are: once you factor in the plate, and necessary undergarments and padding, do they even have a waist in there? Nice work on stripy pants - perfect if you've any pirates to do in the future - but those sculpts are pretty rough: boy am I glad the hobby has moved on to this new 'Golden Age'.
This might be the last of you adventurers, but if you're still pondering the Scots, it sounds like we'll have more fantasy minis from you next week? Looking forward to it
And that's a big AD&D group you have there, bet you have fun keeping all them in line.
