A little challenge


Over the last year I haven’t painted as many actual human (or demi-human) figures as I could/should/would have.

Instead I’ve let myself become diverted by scenery, treasure tokens and easy to paint creatures.

No problems with any of them they’re all useful, but I now find a paucity of actual painted human figures is holding me back in Frostgrave.

Therefore I thought I’d to an ad-hoc challenge to paint five human figures in a week.

If successful I might extend this and repeat it throughout the year.

The first five are shown above. I chose them on the basis of need. L-R:-
– Holborn Toddlebrew. My first wizard. I have a painted model but it’s “primitive”
– Gideon, the apprentice (ditto, also not colour co-ordinated)
– Savage, in preparation for Ghost Archipelago, plus a chance to brush up (ha!) my skin tone painting
– Apothecary, because…
– Crosbowman, because…

Some are undercoated or have vestiges of a paint job, others are raw metal, so first job is to get them all to the same stage of painting.

In the meantime I do have some figures to show the world, but am waiting on a few more to be painted for the “added value”.
