More finished stuff hot off the paint station - a Paladin, the second Jomsviking Bondi mentioned in my last post and a small Burrows and Badgers scatter terrain piece.
First up is the Paladin, an old early 80’s TSR Dungeons and Dragons Paladin. I named him Rogelio de la Vega (Bonus interwebs points for getting that random reference.) and decided I’d paint him up in colours I don’t normally choose, so it was a fun experiment and I think he came out just fine. I like to think that he is a terrible dandy and an obvious show off, more likely to step in to stop a nefarious act only to bolster his reputation in the eyes of onlookers.
|White plate armour? That must mean this guy has some money to spend on enameling!|
|The crossed keys symbol doesn’t feature in my limited DnD searches online. Guessing it’s from the real life Catholic reference? Or not. Either way, it helped key in (see what I did there?) the purple in his colour scheme beyond his feathers.|
|Pale pink cloak and darker pink tunic were both applied in craft paints. Rather surprised with how good their finish looks!|
This next bloke is a metal mini by Gripping Beast, a Jomsviking Bondi for my Dark Ages project. That fancy helmet and green poncho-cloak-thing combo must have been a nice part of a loot pilefrom a raid in the Mediterranean or some such. I kept the paint job on this one simple so he wouldn’t stand out too much from the others in his unit.
|Not sure this feller is all that fearsome like the other Vikings? Don’t tell him I said that though|
Last up for this post is a little resin piece of scatter terrain. I got it for my church terrain (to be featured in a later post) and it’ll add some fun Burrows and Badgers style design elements to the whole affair. Simple painting to look like the stone mausoleum it’s supposed to represent.
|Basic paint job so it looks stone-y. Was going to try for a marble effect but… no, not this time.|
|Sister Tomasina looks to the scripture whilst next to the mausoleum of Sir Gorgonzola. Little does she know, his life crumbled about him when pressure was applied.|
There’ll be more soon, tho at a bit of a slower progression.
Dearly hope all are well out there,
