Some things:

I paint small metal and plastic figures and rarely get to play with them. But that is fine with me.

More Odds and Sods

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,


- Dai

  2. Good stuff, Dai. I especially like Rogelio de la Vega, and that colour ties in well with the TV character's shirts. ;-)

  7. I admit I had to google the Rogelio de la Vega reference and you totally made my day with this post :D
    Such daring paintjobs! I also smiled at the mausoleum, didn't see that coming. Absolutely genius!

  8. Lots of great stuff there, but Rogelio is a standout. Just as he would like it!

  9. Rogelio looks very Slaanesh, Dai! LOL! The pink and purple looks really good though and it's nice to see different colours on a knight/paladin. Love the green cloak on the Viking, and the stone effect on the mausoleum is really good too.

    1. Very Slaanesh I agree. Like you said it's different for sure, I just wanted to get out of my comfort zone.

      Thanks Mat!

  10. Great stuff all around. But watch out!!! Here comes a pedantic attack!! That’s a sarcophagus and not a mausoleum and even then you should of called it a MOUSEleum for extra cool internet points. 😀😀

    (Don’t hate me).

    1. Yeah, sarcophagus is correct, but the website had it listed as a…. Mouseoleum, so you aren’t original Blain! Lol

  11. Good for you daring some unusual colour choices. The pink turned out quite nicely I think!
    The animal sepulchre is pretty amazing. Nice find that.
