About the Project

Back towards the end of last year the Kickstarter for Dunkeldorf landed. Right in the middle of my house renovations. Now I am in lockdown the house is almost ready. I can get on with these beautiful mini's.

This Project is Active

Day 10 - Little Big Dunkledorf Peacock

On a bit if a roll this week, I have also completed Littleton Proudcock. The land lord and Casanova of the Prancing Peacock. I have utilised almost exclusively contrast paints for Littleton. Using a combination of Blood angels red and flesh tears red for his crushedred velvet valure suit.

The inspiration actually came from the character of Remirez in Highlander ( Sean Connery). He was called a Spanish Peacock by the Highlander… As Littleton is the Patron of the Prancing Peacock I only think it’s fitting 😁

So after another bit of a hiatus, I finished the next one of the Dunkledorfians, Eva Eilhart the Bailiff. I used a combination of contrast and regular paints on this figure.

After a little hiatus I have finally got around to finishing the Dunkeldorf Bouncer. It is as an expressive mini, it’s been many years since I last painted an Ogre do it was a bit of a change.

Since I last posted the guys at King Games have launched a new Kickstarter for the Dunkeldorf range, so if you like the mini’s here is your opportunity to get their new Tavern range plus you can pick up the ones from this previous Kickstarter.

Finished up Herman the Borgomeister, these figures are lovely to work with. I kept the scheme pretty simple with Green and Yellow and Red.

Working on Herman was great to paint as his face has such a fab expression on it.

Started work on Leopold, first up some Army Painter barbarian flesh, followed by some Army Painter flesh wash. Started work on Leopold, first up some Army Painter barbarian flesh, followed by some Army Painter flesh wash.

So first up on the block is Gowak the Butcher. A stout fellow, I decided to go with a blue theme. For him to match the butch striped apron. I am going to try and get as much colour into the mini's as possible.So first up on the block is Gowak the Butcher. A stout fellow, I decided to go with a blue theme.
