|Some poncy Elf, Nob the Mercenary, Bird Thing (Chaos Familiar)|
The Black Dwarf (Asgard), CP2 -Bryan Ansell's Heroic Adventurers boxed set Cleric
FF5-2 Demon with sword and whip
Starting on the left is an experimentation piece, starting with white and working down using thin washes. Yawn. I also tried out some NMM since I was trying out new stuff.
Nob got a polish- I worked up flesh tones, but still have not got around to doing his clothes. He is a citadel mercenary- a variant of the militia figures- you will find a few with the same body in that line. Both ranges go for moderately high prices now a days. You want old school character, this range was a high tide point.
Bird thing is one of my favourite figures of all time. A classic Jes Goodwin sculpt.
Next up is a real joy for me. White Dwarfs great cousin, The Black Dwarf. He is from Asgard miniatures, and from a series of probably the coolest dwarf proportions from that time. I spotted him back in the 1980s in an 'eavy Metal article by Aly Morrison. I took the red and black chequered hood and tiger fur from his pic, but went in a different direction with the rest. God how I loved that figure and poured over that article! I have about 80% of the figures from that display now, some of which I have painted in the same way to fulfil a childhood whim. The converted figs may have to be scratch built. :)
