D&D Rogue Repaint


I've been making extremely slow roads into setting up a campaign of "Five Leagues to the Borderlands". I have created my starting group of adventurers and so launched into my collection (painted and unpainted) to find appropriate figures. An archer a rangers cloak was called for. This Old D&D pre-paint seemed to fit the bill but obviously needed a bit of TLC. Glad to find there was a nice figure behind the original paint. There must have been a sculptor somewhere weeping at what became of his work!

Shadowrun Assassins


Painted within a year of purchase - result! This Shadowrun Assassins group has been one of those packs that has sit at the side of the table and had paint randomly blobbed on them until I decided to knuckle down and finish the job.

One main notes from this group is the long jacket on the half ogre. Being a sci-fi figure I wanted to try and force myself to go a bit brighter with the long jacket. I liked the subtle red check but this was the 3rd attempted to try and get it to look OK. The other is the painting of bottle held by the sneaky green coated assassin. It's obvious what it is at least but the glass isn't quite right.

A different group to add to the future cast though...

Dwarf Specialists


A couple of more specialist figures now, both from the Ganesha Games ranges (produced by Alternative Armies). Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes has a specific "ball and chain" weapon rule giving an extended attack radius, which the left hand figure perfectly represents. The other figure is obviously a thief, and a great looking figure he is too!
