First off, another Viking Bondi, now bringing my Warriors unit up to 6 out of 8. He was fun to paint and I thought some woad face-painting was fun to add, as though he was a foreigner who's been inducted into the ranks for some reason or other and now fights for viking fortune and fame.
|Both fur lined and deep blue, this fellow's cloak is rather resplendent if you ask me.|
Next Warrior on the painting bench will be this bloke. Here's a WIP pic.
My mate Steve also asked that I paint up some random critters he somehow purchased, so I started on this tiny Tortoise. Cute little bugger.
|This fellow came from a Reaper Miniatures Animal Companions or Familiars pack or something. Very nice sculpts.|
|This base is a 20mm if I recall correctly. Others in the pack include a penguin, fox, racoon, skunk and armadillo!|
My mate Dave put in far too much money pledging on the Kingdom Death Monster Kickstarter. He's not much of a hobbyist and so I offered to put together the newly arrived expansions that he'd ordered for the game - a task that was rather daunting as there are no instructions to be found anywhere on how to assemble the monsters anywhere!
First up was the disturbing baby monster called a Gorm. This loveable beast includes a vagina-like mouth and a set of large testicles hung betwixt it's rear legs. no penis to go with them though, instead he has a mouth. Yeah - freaky.
|I like to think it's a monstrous opera singer.|
|Flappy hands for hair or whatever they're supposed to be.|
|The White Speaker is a tall 32mm mini, for those that are curious.|
Wierdness aside, I have to say I'm very impressed with what the Kingdom Death crew have put together for their setting. I've also been asked to put together my mate's other large KD model, the Lonely Tree, which is an intimidating job to say the least. But my neck was done by the time I had finished the Sunstalker, so I'll save that job for another date. And no, I'm not painting them - I've too much of my own stuff to paint up already!
