The pig fiend makes me think of the demon-possessed boars in Princess Mononoke but somehow much worse  :o  Great work!

Another long hiatus, seems to be the rule rather than the exception these days. But I started cracking out the paints again of late, mostly in the realm of a grim galaxy but also decided I wanted to go put some work into the fantasy realm. I often find my paintjobs in the land of swords and chainmail come out better, at least to my own eyes. I painted another ranger, currently lacking in story and indeed with snow added to the base may be from some other adventure all together.

Looking suitably grim and perilous! Whatís your t3 unique for the snow? Iíve got a few frostgrave adventurers of my own who need their bases finished and Iím always on the lookout for snow tips.

It's just Valhallan Blizzard from Games Workshop, nothing fancy.

Very fine ranger. I've not seen your other stuff, but the fantasy figurines you do them well.

These will be a little bit of a repeat in a way, of miniatures I painted years ago. But figured they might deserve better photos.

The new pictures look great! I like your take on n the old Bretonnian models. For the knights, did you have to kitbash using legs from another set?

Yeah, the legs are from Bretonnian Men-At-Arms, chopped off at the waist. A pretty simple conversion I found when I was looking at how people were doing bretonnian warbands for Mordheim where you might need your knights to hop off the horse.

Lovely looking figure. :)

 Is he a 3D print or commercially available please?

He's from A Song of Ice and Fire, the unit is called Crannogman Trackers and that's the unit champion, of which there is only one per box.

Hosted a public demo game down at the local club. Played through the first scenario.

Not sure how I've missed this thread before but your stuff is awesome, especially the constructs and the pig beast.

Great grim dark figures, but their backstory style of writing is excellent.
Cheers

Nice! Played the same scenario with Battle System's Fantasy Set, and the setup was *entirely* different.

Pretty interesting to see other's takes on the same scenario I played.

Because of ranged attacks, I pretty much cleared the board, while my ranger heroically ran around the board looting bodies and showing off his shiny looted sword.  :)
My DIY Contrast mix:
* White-primed miniature lightly pre-inked in a dark shade.
* 1 drop acrylic ink in a small pot of paint (eg. children's craft paint). Do not mix.
* Dip the brush in the ink. As you paint, you can dip into the paint to make the layer more opaque.

I recently hosted a demo of Rangers of the Shadow Deep at a local convention with a custom scenario! The Rangers were sent out to find and rescue a priest of the King who had ran afoul of the Shadow's creatures. The rangers were to search between two objectives to find the man, and then move him off the board even as a terrible flesh golem picked up their trail just as they found the priest.

It was a good time, and I had people playing the game through most of the convention. I didn't manage to take many pictures during the play, focused as I was on hosting it. But here are a few.





And also the excellent display we were given to use at the event in the wargaming corner.
