Happy Thursday people, and another cheeky little FrostTrader update for your viewing pleasure! This time it’s the turn of the Archers… see what I did there with the title? No? It’s a British wireless show… oh, never mind.
Anyhow, here are two as-yet-unnamed bowmen:
I’m quite chuffed with these guys – the compound (?) bows really work for me in terms of blurring the line between the sci-fi and fantasy genres, and the conversions just work well IMO. The bows came from a cheap set of ‘apocalypse survivor’ women from Wargames Factory, and really the entire project kicked off once I had found these parts! I’ve also introduced some green into the warpaint for these guys… not sure if I like it or not, so I may be changing that at some point…
I also finished Hawk-Wind, the treasure hunter:
Again, I’m pleased with the conversion itself – nice techno-bow, plus a scanner/staff thing that looks as if it might be used as a scope of some kind… y’know, for hunting’ treasure ‘n’ stuff? I’m assuming he’s blowing his unfeasibly large horn to a) let the waband know he’s found something shiny, or b) because he’s about to get his head kicked in… Again, I’m trying green for the warpaint, and again, I’m not 100% on it, but he’ll do for now.
And here’s a shot of all the bow’n’arrow types together, and a complete group shot so far.
Finally, I know I have been banging on about the ‘Mutes’ from the Amtrak Wars being an inspiration, so I thought it might be useful to show yawl what the Jeff-Jeff I’m talking about! Here’s a posse of Mutes from the Amtrak Wars illustrated guide by Fernando Fernandez:
And ‘the real’ Mr Snow and Cadillac:
So there we are chaps, hope you are enjoying the project as much as I am! Next time, we’ll be meeting the thugs and a warhound that complete the warband. Peace out.
