First up, then, a Citadel Bugbear that was sculpted as part of its Advanced Dungeons and Dragons range and released in the first box set of monsters, BDD02, in 1985. Although several sculptors contributed to the set (the Perrys, Bob Naismith and Jes Goodwin), I'm going to attribute this one to Mr Goodwin as the style is so similar to the later released AD56 bugbears. This fellow will be a beastman for my Tzeentch warband that so far consists solely of him, painted at least.
Next up is the champion of the band. According to the dice and the RoC tables, he is a level 10 human warrior with rapid regeneration, heavy armour and a two-handed sword that contains a Lord of Change (nice!) who has nine spells. I'm playing around with inks to try and get an almost irridescent quality to his armour, something like a beetle's shell. I'm not ready to share him yet, but he's coming on nicely. The other three beastmen that complete the crew are a little way off yet...
Looking good. Mine are ready for painting, which I hope to start later this week.ReplyDelete
Nice work so far. The muted pallet works wellReplyDelete
Lovely painting ! The pouch leaves no doubt about the sculptor, this comes form the hand of Jes :DReplyDelete
Thanks 24_C and Asslessman :)ReplyDelete
It really helps keep me motivated to receive such positive feedback.
very nice, mine are still in pieces.....ReplyDelete
i hope to start once my form reports and the mocks are out of the way
Sounds like none of us are quite ready, then!ReplyDelete
I'm interested to see how your champion comes out. I think the iridescent effect is a nice idea. I toyed around with a similar idea trying to make an armor look opalescent but never got it quite right. Good luck!ReplyDelete
