Painting Update: Otherworld Fantasy Miniatures   Leave a comment

I wanted some fantasy miniatures to match the Monster Cards from Sellswords and Spellslingers.  So I oredered some from Otherworld Miniatures.  They came quickly with good customer service and I am pleased with them.  Again I have tried to use my new Army Painter style on some of them, so green for the Lizardmen, necrotic flesh for the ghouls and zombies, flesh for the Minotaurs.  Will see how it turns out.  Seems to be working for the lizardmen.  Added a buckler to the Thief for the Player Character upgraded after the last scenario we played.

Painting Update: Conan the Picts   Leave a comment

Painted some Picts from the Conan Boardgame.  Used a new technique.  Sprayed them Barbarian Flesh then blocked in the brown leather, off white teeth and bones, black hair.

Then applied army painter strong wash.  A little dwarf flesh to correct and leather/ wood with vermin/ bestial brown.  Quivers have grey added to make the inside leather side different.  Bases covered in sand, dark brown and graveyard earth brown to the bases.  Then testors dull cote varnish to take off the shine from the wash.

Fall of Rome Pandemic   Leave a comment

We played this.  First time we got wiped out quickly because we did not know the game.  Second time round we worked together to Save the Roman Empire.  Good game.
