More Adventurers

It has been a while since my last update, but I have been busy with a few things at work, home, and of course kids.

I have managed to squeeze out a few new minis to showcase. I am not 100% sure if I am finished them, but I think they are tabletop ready.

First up we have Hayden by Hassle Free Miniatures.

I am not sure if I want to do a wash on the flesh again. What I do need to figure out is how to delint her hair. It looks like I left some fuzz when I dried up the ink wash.

If you are not familiar with Hassle Free Miniatures, I recommend you check them out. A mom and pop operation (literally) it has some of the best models I have run across. The female form is a favorite topic for the artist Kevin White, and he sculpts real women: some have curves and none have Pamela Anderson with a breast pump models like many other lines out there.

Hayden does have a few alternate casts including a topless one (which I have) and a modern version…which I am kicking myself for not grabbing. Anyhow, she will be the main hero for my wife’s dwarf army:

Although not as well armoured, the sarcastic expression and giant axe says she doesn’t need a chainmail hauberk. For the topless version I am tempted to try a weapon swap and give her a Roman Scutum. Topless but with a door sized shield – she is ready to go.

I also managed to hammer out a few other models that will make fine adventurers.

One of the Dunedain models I have from an auction years ago, these models have slowly been used in other projects as they are so well done. This particular fellow I painted as the well worn traveler and I am very impressed with the sculpt.

Also finished is Tara the Silent, although with a twist from the stock version.

Yes, I painted her like Wonder Woman. It wasn’t until I started highlighting that I realized I had duplicated the Wonder Woman scheme. At that point I made damn sure to paint the gloves as extra long instead of adding bracers. Golden Lasso of Truth not pictured. Once the pictures were taken I noticed she too had fuzz on her face, but that fortunately just blew off.

And as always the obligatory group shot:

The next projects in the queue involve some personal life stuff so no updates for a while I am sure. Next for painting will be some Confrontation models who are half finished – yes the over-looked project for this year has seen some light. And on the same note, since I have managed a game of 40k, maybe those half-finished tanks will get done. Oh, and the painting competition due in September. But I do have two projects in mind so it is simply a matter of knuckling down onto them.

Hopefully something inspired you today, if nothing else to go buy from Hassle Free Miniatures.
