Thanks chaps.

Did Ned Stark have dark hair? Must have missed that bit in the book. Perhaps I was subconsciously swayed by the thought of Sean Bean's flaxen locks...  ;)

This next one is Aeron Greyjoy known as The Damphair.
He's composed from a Warlord Celt torso and arms spliced onto Fireforge infantry legs, a Fireforge shield and a Gripping Beast Viking bare head.








Your Greyjoys are among my favorites! What color is that green? It looks sort of teal, but more green

I can tell you exactly what it is. It’s Anita’s Acrylic Ocean Blue. A very nice colour I use a lot. Not, unfortunately, a very nice paint though. Matt, but kind of glutinous and thinly pigmented. Mix in a little flat black or white to make it more workable.

Brilliant, thank you!

Ah, craft paint! Beautiful color. I'll have to pick one up when I am stateside again! May I also ask, what is the color you use for the belts? I've been using quite a bit of rusty oranges myself lately. 

Let me know if you need any craft paints you cant get in the UK. I'll be happy to pick up for you and send them along.

Nice additions to your Westerosi, Cpn. :-* I agree that the 'ole 6 and 12 figure combos will always remain popular, whatever ruleset for just the reasons you stated. It is just irritating when it causes you to completely reorganize your forces though... I'm going to have to revisit all my Northern houses to bump the numbers up... >:D :(

After a long hiatus, I needed to add one more figure to my Hill Tribesmen gang - basically Frostgrave Barbarians, which I did for last year's LPL - to bring them up to six.

This one has a FG Barbarian body, FG Soldier arms, and a FG Ghost Archipelago head - thus demonstrating the excellent and straightforward mash-up possibilities offered by the ever expanding range of Frostgrave plastic sets :)

That's a belter! It's actually quite close to how I visualised them from the books.

Lovely job!

That FG Barbarian set looks the best one out of the lot to me.
