I painted two more figs.
The first one is from the coyly named game Hell Dorado, intended to be used as a youngblood, or at any rate new recruit, in Mordheim. I kept the colour scheme quite brown, to match the crossbowmen and the dogs, even though he’s a bit brighter than them. He must have spent less time in the mud. For the first time in a while this is a mini I painted from scratch, with no old half-done painting over it already. As a result, I think the paintjob is cleaner than usual, with the exception of the blade that gave me a hard time.
He looks nicer from the back! At any rate a pretty good, versatile fig: I can see it work in many different games and a few different eras.
The next miniature is a Rackham Cadwe militia. Very pleasant to paint and I’m happy with it. I just wish I had picked out the folds of the red-brown cloth a bit more: they look nice in real life but disappear in the picture. The nmm on the sword is more cartoony, but I like it and I got lucky and made it work on the first try.
Here’s a group picture of the project so far.
Enjoy the winter break you all, till next time!

That’s a great looking warband! I really like the bleakness you get across with the colour choices – very Mordheim indeed 👍
That was the idea! I may have been carried away with the “cleanness” of that youngblood model… I have another I’ll try to paint darker and dirtier, and maybe then I’ll dirty up the other one as well.
Easy does it mate, they look mighty fine as is 👍
Nice work, that’s a superb looking band of adventurers.
Thanks! It’s nice to know you ilke them, makes it more pleasant to paint. 🙂 Next on the table another militiaman with a pig’s head on his shield and a rather haughty nobleman…
These are quite lovely – I really like the stark highlights – very apt for Mordheim!
Cheers! I’m experimenting with higher contrast highlights, now working on a couple of red velvet coats for the champions…
Sounds great. Red can be tricky when highlighting starkly, so I’m keen to see how they turn out! 🙂
