I'm not going to pretend that I'm a demon painter having a slow couple of months; those of you who have seen my work over at Canister and Grape will know that I work at a rather measured pace.
Let's review; 20 figs prior to this post, not by any means earth-shattering, but not bad for a tyro.
And here are my last two figures for the 6th Challenge; in keeping with the prevailing theme of the last day, it's more Frostgrave. (Has everyone been saving these up for the home stretch? Everything's coming up Frostgrave!)
First, a Ranger, assembled from the excellent Frostgrave Soldiers box.
I went for a green palette as a kind of visual shorthand; "LOOK AT ME! I'M A RANGER!"
Next up is the Infantryman, with the air of a man who has seen better days; the clothing is bright, but is motheaten and without insignia or heraldic charge. The only obviously expensive item he owns is a two-handed sword.
|Wait up, where's Odysseus? Oh right, Canada...|
Fantasy, Ancients, Medieval, pulp adventure, and even a World War II hero, so that's a varied bunch of figures. It's been a great experience, and I'm honoured to have been a part of it, seeing the work of some truly brilliant painters and modellers.
Time to rest up for a bit now, but who knows, I might be up for another go by December...
Brrriilliant! Love it Ev. Even though you've succumbed to the Frostgrave scourge you continued to produce high quality work to the very end. The green Ranger is, well, green and so obviously a Ranger, but he looks to be a really nice guy. The lantern-toting infantryman definitely has a sartorial streak, but by the look of his sword he's obviously compensating for something. I can't put my finger on it, and, funny enough, that's exactly what the lady's say too. <ba-dum-pish> Yup, I'm here with Ev, playing twice nightly - we do charades and dance a nice soft-shoe as well. ;)
I clearly remember at the announcement of this year's Challenge you professed you had other things to do (for THREE MONTHS?). But then apparently Millsy had you over dinner and withheld your dessert until you succumbed. Millsy's a very good man as we'd have been a poorer group without you Mr. Hughes. Thanks for your participation, madcap humour and good will. Just so you know, I've already marked I you down for Challenge VII, so don't bother trying to wriggle out of it. Now, start priming you lazy git. :)
