The light conditions are not as good as when I took the last pictures of the guardsman – I don’t have a set up with artificial light, so I depend on the sun! – but since I’m going for a long trip soon, it’s now or never. The result is passable, but next time let me clean the lenses. Can you believe I can’t find the time?! I’m even rushing these lines.
I still think that the new (old) camera captures the colour transitions better, or rather messes them up less. Not that these lads were perfectly blended to begin with, but still. The wolves are… well, perfunctory. I had painted them already years ago and didn’t feel like retouching them too much. They are very dull very grey wolves – I’ll consider replacing them with Fenrisian wolves as seen on Bughaus miniatures. In fact, I already got five of them. But they’ll probably end up under the buttocks of the next batch of goblins. Maybe champions.
My personal favourite is the guy with the axe, I’m really proud of the helmet and love his red nose. Next the one on the far right. Since some of you liked them on the Grom model, I kept using dark blue shadows for the skin.
Shields will have to be completed with some sort of decal or an imprint of a bloody paw or the like. I got tired of waiting for some cheap and effective shields on ebay and decided to go all the way cheap: fifteen minutes later these were done using the thin wood from a Camembert packaging (so French!), dark brown, two greys, sand, white, black, blue and turquoise.
Bases are blah, I was rushing and uninspired. I’ll have to work on basing this summer…
