    Well, it finally happened, my first painting blog on BOW! I decided to post a blog to keep myself on track with painting my Frostgrave stuff.

    I’ll start with my first 3 barbarian warriors: a simple archer, a custom made javelineer (had 25 barbarians thanks to a nickstarter, so why buy a metal one!) and a thief.

    Painted them using mostly the Army Painter method, the “dip” part was “painted” on since i still have 2 drop bottles to finish ;) . After the archer, i decided to add highlights for the other two and attempt to do eyes, something i rarely do out of fear of botching them but, i must admit i like the result on them!

    So, i’ll try to post regular updates, either of my warband, Frostgrave monsters or some small scenery pieces.

    See you later beasties!

    Looks nice and clean, good work! Just a couple of thoughts:

    - are you going to put a highlight on the archer’s head? It’s crying out for a bit of shine :)
    - is that the final basing? If so, then a quick wash / dry brush to bring out the detail would work wonders.

    Looking forward to seeing more…

    Thanks @georgesealy

    Yeah, i get you with the archer, unfortunatly he is now sealed… I intended to make him a simple job (as for the rest of the warband) and i also completly forgot to finish the base before i sealed it. After i realised the goof i made with the base and really watch the archer i decided to put a bit more work for the rest of the gang (and double check the bases ;) ).
    Fortunatly, i have a few more archers to go!

    Looking good so far. Reminds me of Middenheimers from Mordheim

  • Avatar Image duster203p said 9 months, 2 weeks ago:

    Thanks @mage and yeah, they kinda do.

    Here’s a quick WIP for my next 3.

  • Avatar Image duster203p said 8 months, 2 weeks ago:

    Finally some new stuff! Got stuck a bit on 2 of my models so, i’ve put them asside for a bit and painted some scenery…
    This is my ranger and the first of my warband to sport some facial paint/tatoo. It’s quite a simple thing, but i’ll try some new things for the next ones.
    After that, i’ve done one of the Red Herrings for the “Ulterior Motives” option and as a statue, it can be usefull in every game ;) i went for a less worn out look on this one, as if it’s under a protective spell or something…
    The next statue is a Reaper Bones 3, from the Graveyard Expansion i got with my KS. I painted this one more worn out and i plan to add some green flock in the future when i do a lot flocking (i don’t like to flock one or two minis at a time…) and eventually finish the Graveyard set to make a full graveyard along with some other pieces from GW to game on a full graveyard map!

    I’ll be trying to finish my two other guys from my WIP post along another scenery or maybe my “kitbashed’ barbarian apprentice!

    Finally managed to finish 2 more!

    It’s the story of a spearman who became by accident a “staffman” and his man-at-arms buddy.
    As i was prepping up to add a coat of varnish on my spearman, in a rare instance of damaging fumble on my part, i drop the mini and the speartip broke… never found the small tip on the carpet to glue it back together so, added a dab of paint on the broken part…

    Here’s a shot of my WIP: a simple thug.

    And a shot of my upcoming ones: Boudi from Hasslefree Miniatures and a scratchbuilt wizard/apprentice with pieces from a GW Wizard box and a Bones 3 staff!

    (doh, still haven’t found the right way to post the pics inside the text!)

  • Avatar Image evilstu911p said 7 months ago:

    Great progress, keen to see how this all comes together :)

  • Avatar Image duster203p said 6 months ago:

    Well, finally finished painting my thug with a sword! I changed varnish with this one (AP anti shine matt varnish) instead of the Testor dullcoat because of cost value but, dunno about the results, i think it’s still a bit shiny… maybe i didn’t shake the can enough? Who knows, i’ll see in the future with my next figures…

    And here’s a quick WIP update on my next 3, i added a Barbarian Knight into the mixt as no guys in the plastics could really pass for a chain mail guy…

  • Avatar Image duster203p said 2 months, 1 week ago:

    Finaly an update after a bit more than 3 months! Was sick in december and then i got painter’s block for a few weeks painted/glued some other stuff but now, i’m back on Frostgrave!

    Firt off: Boudi.
    I continue to try my hand at painting tatoos and this time, it’s a little bit better (Although not super visible on this pic! I’ll try another angle later).

    I then finished a “captain model”, or at least anyone with mail armor…

    This one is a little dark, and that’s why i turned him into a gingerhead (too many blonds at the moment)! He’s still not varnishe because of winter here so, i might try to light up the color a bit, or not, because i like him that way too.

    And finally, a little objective to round things up (my scratch built apprentice/wizard has been shelfed for now, no inspiration).

    That’s it for now!
