Voila, regiment number two fighting for the Starks. These guys were a lot quicker to paints than the first one, mainly because I already had a finished color scheme to rely on. It was also much quicker to paint the white wolves on their shields and tunics. Originally I would use a Ceramite White basecoat and then White Scar on top. This always turned out to a lumpy texture, something I’ve since learned is due to the pigment being Titanium Oxide, which is tends to clump.
Elizabeth, Ian, Fatima, Ahmed, Morgan The last batch of the ten investigators that come in the Cthulhu: Day May Die board game are finally done! You might have seen them posted on my Instagram, which always gets updates first when it comes to minis. They now join the first five for a complete set of investigators. Now the work starts on the cultists and then the various monsters.
Adam, Rasputin, Borden, Sister Beth, The Kid If you’ve been following my twitter feed for the past couple of weeks, you’ll have seen these minis already in isolation. Now they’re toegether for the first time and what a solid start to the year! With fully half of the investigators that came in the Cthulhu: Death May Die boxset already painted! They are of course lovely little miniatures.
Finally done! I have to admit, these took me far longer than I would have liked. They sat on my painting table all through and since I painted the Cherusci Warrior through October and November. It was a bit of a slog to get back into painting and to actually finish them, but now that they’re done, I’m actually very happy with them. The snow bases I’ve wanted to do for a while now.
What have I done?! So a while back I backed the Kickstarter for the boardgame A Song of Ice and Fire by CMON Games, which is not based on the TV series Game of Thrones, but the original books. I thought the models looked great1, so I splurged and backed whatever the highest tier was that would get me all the special Kickstarter-only minis. And now they just arrived.
