The last post promised something just that little bit different and given that Dwarves will be gracing many a gaming table in the coming weeks with the release of the Hobbit, Dwarves it is.
Both figures are from the Citadel pre-slotta ranges with the gent below from the Norse Dwarves and his more gaudily dressed companion is thought to come from the original range of Citadel Dwarves.
The Norse Dwarf above has now been finished and the basing is setting before the last touches are added.
Hopefully this Dwarf will join his more taciturn friend above shortly allowing both to be used in the "Red Right Hand" Warband for Songs of Blades and Heroes. The inspiration for the warband came from the Nick Cave song of the same title. There are still a few to paint, including four dwarves, one halfing and a wizard to complete the travelling band of some reknown in certain circles.
From Dwarves to Trolls, the first of a stand for Impetus Fantasticus. The thought here is to create a composite Orc army from a variety of different figure ranges to show the diversity of the species so to speak. Orcs, Goblins and Trolls vary from story to story and supplier to supplier.
This beast comes from the superbly talented hands of Gamezone Miniatures and whilst not quite, Tom, Bert or Bill Huggins; the Cockney gents of the Troll world, it will fit nicely on the stand along side another of its destructive brethren.
The second picture is to try and show a bit more detail. Have opted for a greenish grey for the flesh of these Trolls and will work the underside upto a lighter shade. Not really sure how to go about the dead horse yet but there is plenty of time to work on it.
The next post will have some more unusual figures but not from fantasy this time, although that depends on your point of view.
Cheers for now
