'Dog', Balch, a Felstad veteran (infantryman with +2 damage sword), and Voss (man at arms) a Steppe fighter who can make vodka from any root vegetable.

Bugle the thief (running from crimes that he most certainly did commit), Old Clem who retired many many years ago and his 'son' Clem who was conceived and born whilst Old Clem was fighting the Orcs in the North. (Poor Clem is a bit slow, bears no resemblance to his 'father' and is none the wiser...)(both thugs)

That band is shaping up nicely!

I like the unifying "red" theme - ties everything together.

Looking really good!  I like the backstory for each.

Do you usually have fairly open terrain for those archers?  I had one archer last game and he barely ever had a decent shot the whole game due to scads and scads of terrain and intervening stuff.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm used to painting 15mm, and this is my first time painting 28mm for over 20 years.  I've used the archers to cover lines of sight, act as my reserve, and for hand to hand if necessary. Neither of them can hit a barn door though!

I mix up the terrain so some open areas/roads for interest.

The ranger has a name now (I couldn't think of one at the time).  The warband can't pronounce her full name so call her Isha for short.

More DarkOps terrain on the workbench, plus the GW Numinous Occulum (which was a pig to put together but looks the part)

Small amount of modelling time...

God I love the smell of laser cut mdf! Dark Ops buildings come with loads of extras too - walkways, ladders and so on  Smiley

Man, that's a sweet piece of terrain.  Numinous Occulum, huh?  Impressive.

Took advantage of the nicer weather by doing some priming and grey spray painting:

Chance to do some painting, but still weathering etc to do. Happy with results so far but thinking about adding some subtle green mossy patches to stonework so they look less monochrome.

Columns made from wedding cake pillars and GW high elves. Statues come off the top so I can use them in scenarios

I'd certainly give the bronze stuff a greeny-blue wash. The odd bit of green here and there would look quite good I think, though they look brilliant as they are!

Cheers. Just been smudging the odd bit here and there. Looks much better, but does mean that I need to go back over my previous models to match them up  Shocked  The orb thingy needs a bit of Frostification.  Then Woodlands Scenics snow ************

My Summoner used the Numinous Occulum to summon a major demon and got more than he bargained for...

How did you find the GW Occulum fitted together ?
I got some of the Storm of Magic scenery pieces and they required a lot of work and green stuff to put together.

Nice Major Demon, by coincidence, in my last game, a wandering monster was rolled, at the same time as my furry feline fiend turned up...
