From Barks: A Snow boy and his Wolf (11 points)

The boy is from Elladan, and the wolf is from Reaper- my first Bones figure. They will complement last years revenants nicely.

It is a challenge painting and photographing shades of black!

The wolf's eyes are a bit odd, but the rest of this large beast is great. He's on a 40mm Renedra base. The mould lines aren't apparent in real life!

I'm not entirely happy with the boy's face, it just doesn't ring true for me. But then, what would I know?

From Ray

I think you've made a terrific job on both these figures John. Black is a bugger to get looking right and it never photographs very well either?
Love the Wolf, he looks a handful, I really had to search for the mould lines on the wolf, so I think you've got away with that. Love the basing too, the snow effect is really cool!

I've added an extra point for the wolf as he's pretty cool and a little larger than 28mm.
So 11 points altogether!


  1. A very nice duo, they match up reasonably well too.

  2. Nicely done Barks. The snow effects came out well.

  3. Nice work on the figures and the snow works well too.
    Best Iain

  4. 'You know nothing, Jon Snow.'

    Great work - love the slush and stubble.

    1. He looked a bit baby faced so I added the stubble, which was a slight improvement.

  5. Very atmospheric - it's almost as if you remembered actual cold weather! I can't remember when we last had a cold day...

    Great job, Barks!

    1. It’s only 33 today. I do my snow based on other peoples’ descriptions...
