At the moment I am struggling to get a small Napoleonic point-bomb on the way so I am not able to post much for today's entry. But just so I do not get stuck, I have done 4 single 28mm figures.
First up is another of North Stars "Tea-time" series figures:
Next up is a well-known Vampire-vampireslayer, yeah I know... but I liked the figure and wanted to experiment with gloss paint so I could check if the effect would be useful for Dart Vader's helmet. She's from Hasslefree if I am not mistaken.
Followed by our all time favourite: Floki! Yes he's back. This is actually my own figure. I like this one far better than the first one I painted because the colours on his clothing are more pronounced and the face has worked out better although the pictures do not show this, the weather being quite overcast and so I was not able to get good pictures.
Last is Floki's sister Bodice eeeeeh Boudi from Hasslefree as well. She's actually a resin figure on a resin scenic base and I used the same colours as I did on Floki. (hence the sister-part). I decided against doing the usual tartan since I liked this well enough.
Should be worth 20 points this quartet.
Hi again Sander. Great painting! Didn't expect I would see Floki again, and who knew he had a sister? Although judging by Floki, perhaps she is best left alone. All of the brushwork here is top notch, but the fellow having some tea really takes the cake for me. The tartan on that figure looks marvelous. I've tried painting tartan a few times myself, and the experience leaves me prone to suicide. The fellow looks wonderful, in fact, seeing him leaves me craving some Empress Tea. I think I'll go put on the kettle...I wonder if Floki would be up for some tea too...perhaps not...
That is 20 points base, but anyone who can paint tartan without swearing in the post gets a couple extra - 22 points for you! We await your Napoleonic points bomb next week...
