As an experiment I grabbed 10 Perry plastic WOR archers and began a little speed painting challenge. To be honest these figures are so detailed they are no fun to paint. Layer upon layer of clothing, straps and buckles (all in a "small" 28MM) just grinds my gears. So the plan was to cut my plastic mountain down a little....base colours, wash and tidy up. It took about two hours in total, please ignore the bases I am waiting for the glue to dry before basing.
The colours are Burgundian but I believe that they hired bows...oh well they will work for fantasy if not. Tomorrow the bases will be painted and I will work a little nore on the details....to be truthful I am not sure that I will notice that they were speed painted (3 hours total) once they are completed.
Lately I have been reading Frostgrave and painting the odd figure for it, mostly skeletons, ghouls and trolls etc but I did not have a toad. Until now. A strange event occurred this afternoon, as we emptied an old box a toad of perfect proportions fell out of the bottom. I can attest 100% to never having bought a plastic/resin toad in my life! Maybe he was already in the box? Anyway he is getting a coat of paint....can anyone ID this cherub of a free toad? I think he is a decoration or a toy and not a war game miniature.
Thanks for checking in, have a good Easter and keep gaming!
