Wyatt Earp

My FLGS briefly carried the West Wild Exodus game line, but I guess it didn't do well because one day all of the figures were in the bargain bin. I picked up this one, a steampunk version of Wyatt Earp. I'm particularly proud of the base, which resembles wood flooring. I built this out of slats cut from a coffee stirrer.

Crocodile Games' Leonidas from its Spartan range was an excuse to work on my NMM. The sheild gave the most problem.

Conan, Part 4

I paint on average less than 10 figures a year. I'm very slow and, quite frankly, I don't have a lot of free time for painting. I can somehow find the time for commissions, however. I finished these 21 Conan: The Board Game figures in about a little more than two months. Here's the last batch, with the Vanir Valkyrie, the Princess, Gitara, Akivasha, Taramis-Salome and Atali, the Frost Giant's daughter.

Conan, Part 3

For this latest look at my large commission of figures from Conan: The Board Game, we look at some of Conan's friends. They include Shevatas, N'Gora, Hadrathus and Zelata (and her wolf).

Conan, Part 2

This is the continuation of my large number of commissioned figures for Conan: The Board Game by Monolith. I'm going to focus on the ladies in Conan's life, four versions of Belit and two versions of Valeria. I should note that all of these figures were a mixed bag. I'm not a big fan of plastic because it doesn't hold detail as well as metal. One of the biggest problems is faces as I don't think it's very easy to get an expression, instead creating figures with bland faces. But you can use paint to fix some of that. In case you wondered, I achieved the pale flesh for Belit's latter three versions with a base of Reaper's Vampiric Shadow, which I shaded by adding a little purple and then highlighting with linen white (also Reaper).

Conan, Part 1

I recently completed an extensive commission to paint several figures from Monolith's Conan: The Board Game. I will include them in a series of posts, starting with the big man himself. These are the main Conan, the Conan based on the painting by Brom, King Conan and King Conan's lion.

Feylhin the Savage

This is a character figure from the old Rackham Confrontation line. I believe she's now available through Cadwallon. Anyway, I wanted something different from the typical "barbarian chick" paint job you normally see with this figure (or the unhealthy zombie look of the original box art). Instead, I wanted something similar to Jim Murray's Kavai the Wanderer.

Croc Men

Here's a Croc Man from Corvus Belli's Infinity game with a sniper rifle. Don't ask about the base. I got a bunch of metal base plates in a grab bag years ago, and I don't remember the maker.

Kjell and Rhasia meet Dragoth

This is a scene I worked on for a long time in between other projects. It includes all Reaper figures, including Kjell Bloodbear, Rhasia the Zombie Master, and Dragoth the Defiler. I swapped out Dragoth's original sword, which I thought was too flimsy looking with one from an OOP Reaper undead warrior. I then mounted the three on a rock I found hiking and which I'd always thought would make a good base given the natural "step."
