I'm running a day late after taking a 3-day weekend with the family. My Dad came down for a visit as my grandmother's 80th birthday is tomorrow. Staying at my grandparents' house allows for plenty of painting time. Not all was applied to minis though as on Sunday Dad & I stained their deck. Bleh, what a job that was, as its a 2nd story deck...but enough of that, you guys want to see minis.
First up is an Amethyst wizard who's studies apparently have taken a turn for the worst...
|I didn't realize how mutated this guy was till painting him...|
I didn't want to paint him in the usual green of Nurgle, so I figured I'd paint him up as a misguided follower of one of the Empire's colleges of magic (and of those, the Amethysts are my favorite). This guy won't however be fighting alongside my Stirlanders but rather my Skaven. In the aftermath of our last Mordhiem game, I rolled a triple 6 on the exploration chart resulting in 'returning a favor'. That gives me one free hired sword for the next game. There aren't many who will deal with Skaven aside from Warlocks. I've used this guy in that capacity before, and as everything else in my Skaven warband is painted, I figured he ought to be as well.
Next up is the standard bearer for my Stirland Swordsmen regiment:
This is a 3rd hand model and unfortunately he leans way forward. The slightest bump sends him into a face plant, so I guess I'll have to magnetize the bases to their (future) movement trays. Its a good thing to do anyways, however this guy makes it a necessity.
...and finally, two more Swordsmen & the first two painted archers:
thebob489's Nordlanders or just thinks he's fashionable, who knows...
