I like the shanties.
I would be torn between adding graffiti (with a white gel pen)
& leaving them as is for  more generic usage (modern earth etc.)

Great shanties… and I really love your To‘ok, especially the last couple you did. Lots of character. Great idea to do patterned fabric.

@War Monkey - Thanks!

@has.been - Thanks, yes I did think about graffiti, but ended up sticking with something closer to images of real shanties I looked at, since I might use these pieces in ash waste settings as well as underhive.
It often looks great, but other times I worry that graffiti can dominate a piece of terrain if its not subtle enough. Will try some out on some MDF buildings soon and see how I get on, cheers.

@Grumpy Gnome - Thank you! The patterned fabric looked great on some Perry samurai I saw, so I was keen to try it.

Hi all,

The Antediluvian Miniatures ‘Captive fugitive’ was a must-have figure for me from when I first saw it; perfect for so many scenarios. The sculpting, especially of the face, is so fine too - I’ve not really done it justice, but this is a lovely miniature.

I do apologise for the sacrilege of using a non-Oldhammer miniature to represent Goldburg (as per the post title), but I wanted to experiment with a different skin tone and then it seemed too good not to have him as the legendary character from the Rogue Trader scenario generators.

My main learning point with this one was: If a guy’s armour includes shin pads, white is not the best colour choice… it’s not too bad after weathering, but he still looks a bit like he’s had a rough over batting for the first eleven!

Cheers,
Raedwald

Genuinely laughed aloud at this. Great looking figure.

I remember the WH40K scenario generators... I wonder what happened to my copy of that book!

@Redshank - Thanks! You’ve gotta find that book man, not only is it a sacred text, but judging by the way the eBay prices have gone, you might soon be able to exchange it for a decent property!

@has.been - See what you did there  ;) lol

@Storm Wolf - ‘Homage’ away. Many thanks!
