Well I finally got my Druzhina (2 points of Hearthguard and 1 point to upgrade) done for CincyCon this coming March. Shields, spears, sword/bow case, and quivers have all been attached and painted. The countdown continues and wondering if I'll complete the rest of the army in time. Working on some foot now so I have something that can go into woods and fight.
When I painted up and posted about some Frank Cavalry a bit back I complained about the spear hands being closed hand and having to drill them to place the spears. Now after having to two part epoxy the spears into open hands I can see the madness of my complaint. Now I'd much rather drill the fist and only have to add a little epoxy as opposed to the gob (which I over did in some cases) I placed on these. I painted the area black and lightly dry brushed grey around the area to try and make it blend in more.
Shield transfers are by Little Big Men studio and the rest my work. I'm showing them in two groups because of how I had to take the photo's in my little home made light box.
....and the second group.
As always thanks for looking.
What will you find here? Ramblings from an aging gamer-miniature painter. When I first started out in this hobby computers were in their infancy and finding other gamers could only be done by going to conventions or as in my case bumping into somebody who happened to see me reading "Panzer Leader" on the school bus. Look how far we have come! The internet has allowed our small community to be able to connect on a level I never dreamed of when I was but a small lad. What I do hope you will find here is something interesting from one wargamer/miniature painter to another. I paint miniatures somewhat decently, so I will be posting some pictures of my work, and perhaps a review or two of games and/or miniatures. Most of all this is just about having fun and anything I post here is meant to be for that reason.
