Hi guys, I have a quick update for you lovely folks today – I’ve been up to my ears in an international relations theory essay for the last couple of weeks, but I did find the time to paint a few bits and pieces. I had a Werewolf kicking around his undercoat, and so I hit him with a super quick wash’n’drybrush paint job in between bouts of essay writing. A dash of blood & gore completes the job. The werewolf came with a bonus severed head, which got the same treatment:
I also painted a Mummy in the same way, minus the blood, plus a bit of the new GW gem paint to add a bit of interest to his amulet. He only took a couple of hours in total, so this is probably the quickest mini I have ever painted – I think he came out pretty well, despite the minimal effort:
I reckon this street patrol is bang in trouble…
Not much else to say about these really – the Mummy is from Northstar, and I can’t remember where the werewolf came from, but they are both pretty cool and were fun to paint. I’ll be using them in a pulp/Frostgrave crossover game with the kids over the hols – my youngest just loves werewolves, so this should be good fun.
I still have a few assorted skeletons to paint up over the next couple of weeks – my Lich Lord & retinue. After that, I’m hoping to use the holidays to put together a bits-box, blood bowl sci-fi crossover team, (or bbbbsfxot for short). I’m planning an undead team with a significant twist – it’s either going to be amazing or shite! Watch this space ;-)
Brilliant mate. I am working on a werewolf as we speak. I’ve never liked Mummy’s but I love the paint work on this fella. The gem works really well. I’ve been meaning to ask, where do yo get your terrain from. In particular the stone walls etc. Do you make them yourself? They look fantastic.
Cheers dude, always good to have some generic monsters to hand :-) The scenery is from a company called ‘Adrian’s Walls’ here in the UK. All the scenery bits I have been using recently are from their pre-painted Frozen City range – pricey, but very very nice ;-)
Haha what a coincidence I’m just on North Star now looking at Adrians wall haha.
Nice to get some rapid turnover like that Alex.
I think that the werewolf also came from Northstar. The werewolf head generates a bounty on Frostgrave I think, which is why it had that fun accessory.
Ah! That makes sense :-) Cheers mate!
Nice work as always. Is Frostgrave a good buy? I’ve been eyeing it for some time but can’t make up my mind on buying it or not. It is really cheap on iBooks.
Thanks dude, and yes, I’d say it is definitely a good buy… use any models you like, low model count, great campaign structure, awesome fun! I struggled a bit due to having no fantasy minis in my collection at all, but no major issues getting up to speed. They are doing a sci-fi equivalent soon called Rogue Stars, which I literally cannot wait for – I have plenty of lead for that! ;-)
Rogue Stars sound even more awesome.
These guys look great – I really like that Mummy especially. Shame Northstar’s postal methods date from the early 1990’s, but if I see it elsewhere I may well snap him up.
Thanks mate :-)
