This was done as a holiday gift for a friend. The bulk of my Bretonnians are still in a BIG box and I will eventually get them in the queue!
Since the figure is in an old style and reminded me of old woodblock icons I wanted to paint it in that sort of abstract style. The rest of the scheme is simple and intended for tabletop use. I'm getting inspired by a lot of the crazy freehand that is going round the painting circles these days so the next one might be more involved! Curse you Brush Mistress! =)
She was fun to paint and my friend seems to like her so all is well! I'm going to have to sneak a few more Bretonnians into my sequence!
Here are a couple of pics of the Jailbirds Cruz and Punky in progress. You can see some of the subsurface effects that will, hopefully, get smoothed out a bit later in the process. I've also shamelessly swiped some elements of the James Wappel method to modify for use with my own style.
|What is this... from Croatia!|
I'm not up to his level of work but I'm making steady progress developing my own styles. Its easy to do when the project is as inspiring as the TGG has been.
These continue in the refugee army theme and Punky is getting a few modifications to the banner pole.
Tabletop World's amazing Mansion arrived yesterday! Om Nom Nom!
There was some minor damage, easily... and seamlessly, repaired with some very thin super glue. There was also a long crack in the accompanying Townhouse 1 model that was also repaired with the thin glue. These things really like the glue!
Here is the remaining line of Tabletop buildings awaiting their turn under the brush... although I juggled the line up when the Mansion arrived. It, and one of the Townhouse 2 models, moved in front of the already primed Townhouse 3. The Mansion itself is half primed at the moment... finishing that step today!
Raging Heroes has mentioned working on some very light vehicles, in the recon role most likely, for the Jailbirds. I'm thinking some kind of Mad Max -esque armed dune buggies that will probably be similar to the Tauros family from Forge World... which is likely where I'll go for the very light recon vehicles if RH doesn't get round to their own version.
Finally... whew! Ubiquitous Rat and I are back on the Serene Dawn RPG thang. So I'll have to move a bit of the painting schedule back out of the game development space. More on that as it develops!
