New Pre-painted on the Block!

Or rather on the blog! But who doesn’t love 90’s music, ahemm! ;)

I’m putting some things up for sale at www.kinggames.eu at my pre-painted section. Some of the items are things I painted a while ago (this section has been upcoming for quite some time), and some of them was painted very recently. Here is an example of the newest ones :)

First off is Corim the Kestrel – Gnome Sorcerer from Reaper miniatures. I painted him very simular to Derek Schubert’s version as I thought the colours were really nice and it’s something I haven’t combined in a while! I used some pearlescent paint for the “magic” and I used a little bit of the blue from the magic parts in his hair to simulate the light it shines on him :)
Main colours used are: Ocean triad from reaper (Deep Ocean, Marine Teal, Surf Aqua) on his magic twirls, eyes, sword and belt. And Violet Red with Brilliant Red highlights for the Robe and shoe decals. I used tiny dots and small strokes of Emerald Alchemy on the Sword and on the glowy magic twirl thing :-P

Next off is Juliette, Female Wizard. I’ve had this miniature for years and only finished it a week ago for the pre-painted section. I decided to go for the colours I liked instead of what would look “best” as colour choice is a struggle for most painters.
Main colour for the dress is my favourite paint: Burgundy Wine mixed and highlighted with Pale Violet Red. I did some freehand on the dress, though it’s a little hard to see on the photos. A very cute and fun miniature :)

Here we have Spirit of Spring also from Reaper Miniatures. Some of the flowers on the base are from my garden, painted to match her dress. The dress is painted with Griffon Tan and highlighted with Sun Yellow and Lemon Yellow and hair is the Warm Deep Browns triad: Muddy Brown, Earth Brown and Leather Brown.

Last but not least! Vaeloth, Hellborn Paladin (Tiefling) from Reaper aswell. Tried out some Non-metallic parts on this one with a few shiny bits, since it’s for pre-painted, and it has to look good in the hand aswell :) Also, if you want to paint Non-metallics, but lack the paints, Reaper’s Sepia Wash completely removed the shiny stuff from metallic paints. I used that for all the shadows on the shield and I think it came out pretty neat! Besides, metal “don’t shine” where the sun don’t shine ;)
The tiefling Skin is Red-Brown Triad from reaper: Mahogany Brown, Chestnut Brown and Rust Brown.

All of them are up in the pre-painted section.

Notice Board!

One thing we have always used in our RPG’s but never had terrain for is a notice board! It is a very useful prop whether you are in a big city or a small village, ’cause you can always find a missing person note, an advertisement, a wanted poster or a help wanted notice! We couldn’t find any such thing anywhere, so we made one ourselves!

Notice Board

Using balsa and a bunch of accessories it ended up looking pretty cool! We printed out some of the posters we initially made for an advertising pillar (which I will add to the blog at some point!) Ulli and Marquand is loose in our Middeheim campaign so they were an obvious choice for a wanted poster along with other posters (handouts printed in mini-size) a notorious witcher + Scoia’tael leader, advertisement for an awesome shop called King Games, and a real cool handout from WFRP 1st edition (think it was a fan-made version. Thanks to whoever made it!)

UPDATE: I recently posted a link to the posters I used and some tips www.cabanaminis.com/posters-for-notice-board

Frostgrave has Arrived!

As a fan of Mordheim I was eager to find out what the “big deal” with Frostgrave was. More than a few customers have mentioned it during the last few months and we finally got the whole shabang this week.

Very exciting miniatures and I’ve already opened up a box of Frostgrave Soldiers, which is very simular to Games Workshop’s now recent discontinued Empire Free Company (only a bit warmer dressed). It was only a matter of time since their great success with Age of Sigmarines (sarcasm may apply), killed all the previous and beloved lore and all the heroes within :*-(

Luckely I managed to reserve my copies of Bretonnia and Empire sets a while ago, along with metal versions on Ebay. Hardly anyone will miss their Finecast miniatures anyway! ;-)

Back to Frostgrave!

The rulebook is really cool with tons of amazing artwork which I always find intriguing! And I like the idea of a sorcerer as leader with apprentice and hired soldiers. I do play Possessed after all, so I might take a look at those cool cultist miniatures!

My husband made this cool banner for our shop King Games where you can buy everything from the Frostgrave line! You can find the category here
