It’s been a while since I worked on this project. 🙂

This is a special miniature. It’s not part of the Kickstarter. This is the first and at this moment only new miniature released for Anno Domini since the Kickstarter. And it’s also the only metal miniature in this project.

Should you consider getting into Anno Domini 1666, at this very moment Wargamer Games Studio is running a new Kickstarter for this game: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1263001724/swords-of-light-and-darkness?ref=user_menu

I’ve used this faction to try out zenithal highlighting and glazing with inks.

This was the last of the six big factions in the kickstarter. Slowly the end of this project approaches.

To paint this miniature right I’ve looked at some paintings from the real Cardinal de Richelieu.

With five of the six main factions painted as well as many other miniatures, more than two thirds of this project are now done. Only 28 miniatures left.

My source of inspiration for painting this miniature are 17th century paintings from (wealthy) Dutch citizens like the one below.

The Sampling Officials (also: Syndics of the Drapers’ Guild), Rembrandt, 1662.The Sampling Officials (also: Syndics of the Drapers’ Guild), Rembrandt, 1662.

I’ve tried out glazing on these miniatures, so they may look a bit different and to bright compared to the other miniatures in this project.

All for one and one for all!

I’ve based the way I painted these musketeers and my previous entry on French Musketeer 1622-1775 from Osprey Publishing.

This character is a dwarf from a noble family. He caries a crossbow he shot his father with. I’m sure any similarity with a well-known book or television series is pure coincidence. 😉

Painting “not Tyrion”

On this miniature I tried out some new techniques. To create texture I used stippling on his red clothes and line texturing on his green cloak.

I followed the tutorials of Vince Venturella for this:

“Shouldn’t a werewolf faction contain a werewolf?”

I will paint the werewolf at the end of the project along with the other monsters.
