Showcase: Snow Troopers!

 



Finally got to paint some Star Wars Legion figures! You can see some Snow Troopers with support. 
Tricky fellas to paint, since they're all white. But with a little artistic license and many different shades of white/cream/eggshell/unbleached wool/etc. I think I got a look that works even on a snowy table. 




Taking pictures against a white background of course was the ultimate test. ;-) Hope you like them!

Showcase: Thanos!

 


Here's the biggest of the bad and the baddest of the big - it's Thanos! And the only thing bigger than him: his comfy chair!

All joking aside though, this one's a big'un. All plastic, all from the Marvel: Crisis Protocol range, and pretty impressive. Fun to paint too!

Hope you like him!

Showcase: Napoleonic Austrians!

 



Particularly animated ones at that as well! These are Austrian line infantry including command and a sapper, based for skirmish games such as Chosen Men.



If these here look familiar to you - you may have seen them in the Napoloenic supplement for the excellent Muskets&Tomahawks (2nd edition) rules.


I greatly enjoy painting Napoleonic Austrian infantry. In a few weeks time I'll show you my own (also for skirmish gaming, incidently).

Hope you like them!

Show Report: 1. Tabletop Gameday Sigmundsherberg

 

Aaaye, it's been a while since we've done one of those, right? The simple reason being that I hadn't been at any shows in more than two and a half years due to the Covid.

At some point though it was time to dust off the wargaming show stuff and get back out there, and what better occasion than 1. Tabletop Gameday Sigmundsherberg.

Showcase: Dark Souls' Winged Knight & Sentinels

 


Another fan favourite! Who doesn't love the Winged Knight. And look at how straight his halbeard is too. Lovely. I added the golden yellow freehand on his tabard, so he looks proper.

In the second picture you can see his Sentinel pals. 


Hope you like the big lads!

Showcase: Dark Souls' Titanite Demon & Friends

 



Heyhey, time for more Dark Soulsian baddies. Here's the Titanite Demon and several enemies straight from the High Walls of Lothric. I reinstalled Dark Souls 3 just to research the look of these enemies. Because I take my job seriously, damnit!

The funny thing about Dark Souls (the video games) is that they very, very much rely on lighting for the look of the enemies. Which is something that doesn't translate all that well onto miniature. Even in large screenshots or videos it can be hard to figure out what colour something is supposed to be. And still, I had to apply some creative freedom to add at least some colour in those faded blues and greens, mainly to help tell the enemies apart on the board. I also did my best to put the ragged, torn, and very 'spotty' look onto the figures.

One of the many screenshots taken by yours truly.



Anyway, I like them. Hope you do too!
