A few days ago I made a post about some townsfolk for our RPG – a blacksmith and a halfling nobleman. This time I painted a couple of real oldschool Bretonnian Archers and a small child from Freebooter.
The archers were really fun to paint. We found a bunch of these stored in my husband’s parents’ attic and I decided to paint 2 of them as archers for our town scenery. I already have one practice target from Zealot Miniatures and I have several extra targets from Mantic Kickstarter due in May.
I painted them in 2 themes. One standard Archer with the Colours of Talabecland and some freehand “embroidery” and a little moustache :) the other is in Hochland Attire with a little Bretonnian Lily icon (Fleur de Lis).
The kid is from a Freebooter Miniatures: Lobo the Old Warhorse set. I added a large feather to his (or her) hat, though it is a little hard to see on the picture. The base is the original metal base customized to fit a 20mm base. I painted the child androgynous, so we can use it as either a girl or a boy squire, helping the pc’s carry their luggage and other necessities.
