Apologies for another westeros thread- first up is a baratheon spearman. I didn't go for sigils on the rank-and-file, as I figured that they're more likely to just bear the colours of the house. This is just a fireforge mini, no conversions or anything. The paint job was pretty rushed (it's a test piece), but it's good enough for the tabletop. I need to add some tufts, too.



Eventually I'd like to do some Starks, Tullys and Lannisters too. I'm going to focus on the conflicts in the first three books.

We can't have enough Westeros threads!! Grin

I really like your base (the miniature is cool as well,  Wink)

Nice beginning and as others said you can never have to many Westeros threads

Well, it's been a while, but I finally finished the spearman, a mate of his, and a nasty Bolton for them to beat up. I've based them with a snowy theme, to represent the troops around the battle of Winterfell, although having as much snow as is in the books would be a bit too difficult I think.

First, the Bolton:



Now the two goodies:




I will hopefully update this before next year... I'm aiming to have a couple of small SoBH war bands done in the next couple of weeks.

Cheers mate. Unfortunately I had a bit of a disaster when painting them- I decided to use a brand new game colour black, and it came out incredibly glossy. So now my other (WIP) Boltons look more like servants of Slaneesh in patent leather... In any case, I need to highlight it a bit more, although I'm worried about it then just looking grey.

I've learned my lesson though, next time I'll be sure to test my paints.

Matt/anti-shine varnish should help. I use Army Painter and have no issues.

The minis look great  Smiley

So, this project died an abrupt death due to an unfortunate Spring cleaning incident.

However, I've been inspired by the release of the Perry French infantry, so I've got some of them on the way. The only remaining miniature from the previous incarnation of this project was an archer, so I've painted him up in my Bolton scheme, and based him to look like he's in fairly deep snow. Photographing said base has proven to be a little tricky, but hopefully you'll get the idea. The base was still wet when photographed, so the shininess should go away soon.

I agree - MORE Westeros!
You've made a nice start to the project. Might I suggest a tad of drybrushing to suggest fresh snowfall to unify the base with the figures...?

Cheers mate I'm looking forward to getting some more done. I'm not sure what you mean about the drybrushing though- do you mean flecks of snow on the clothes?

Yep that's the sort of thing - it also 'distresses' the clothing and makes it look more lived in

I'll give it a go! Just realised I forgot to highlight the face and hair, too.  sleep

Nice figure. Still love that colour scheme. Wish I'd thought of that instead of all-pink!  Roll Eyes

You should try it! The colour scheme in my head was a red-black, somewhat like the blue black of your Starks; but I don't have the skills to pull it off!

Anyhow, I've highlighted the skin a little and added some weathering. I quite like the weathering actually. Great idea, sukhe_bator!
