Working at home today, so managed to get a quick matte varnish session in and box off a few minis. I will say though – ‘scuse the photos again. I’m having an absolute ‘mare at the moment, I need to work on my set up a bit more, they’re really boshing my paint jobs.
Firstly, for Fantasy, here’s a desert barbarian:
Next up, some Sci-Fi. As part of my desert fantasy project I’ve been buying loads of classical, dark ages and biblical civilians, and some of them have become fodder for Sci-fi conversions. I’ve been very inspired by the Art of Rogue One book, there’s some fantastic civilians in that.
So, inspired by colourful robes and strange hats – here’s a space shepherd and his alien goats:
The goats are obviously just painted in an odd colour (I actually painted the lamb in the chaps hands first, but didn’t really think the colour choice through – so the goats had to follow suit!). I sculpted the helmet/hat (I always think it’s very sci-fi when an opaque surface covers eyes) and gave him some padded pants. All in all he’s pretty good I reckon.
I’m pretty chuffed to add some goats actually, having been really enjoying The Vagrant recently (which has a great goat ‘character’).
Finally, and slightly ironically, is my first finished mini from the new Crom’s Anvil range, converted for Sci-Fi:
I added a backpack, visor and some pouches and pads just to sci-fi him up. I reckon he’ll slot in nicely in the background of some space streets.
Anyway, sorry again about the photos – I’ve still got a chunk more basing and varnishing to do, so should have some more bits to show soon.
