Finally, some properly painted lead here. It’s a great mini from the C10 Half-Orcs range, sculpted by Aly Morrison. I picked it up from bridgend_steve a good while ago and painted it up for the interlude between scenario 1 and 2 of the Stillburg campaign. He’s a bit mangled up with a heavy mold line across the right hand side of his face, obscuring the detail.

The motif of the shield is that of a white raven, nicked from the Fable 3 game where a band of mercenaries use a similar symbol. As I collect and paint up the remaining C10 Half-Orcs, I’ll re-use the shield design and they’ll form a nice coherent unit or warband. Got three more primed and waiting for paint.

In the Stillburg campaign, he only makes a quick cameo in a scenario interlude where he acts as a guide for a gang of samurai from Nippon.

They’re unexpectedly backed up by a local bad-tempered minotaur; Fatgit Rumblegut (finally I got to use him in a game).

More on that odd constellation in my report on that game. As all minis now are fully painted I’ll do a few shots to illustrate it. Might be a while…

I’ve also managed to add a finishing touch to two more quick jobs of non-Citadel lead. To the left is a Metal Magic paladin, still avaliable from Mega Miniatures as Guard with Halberd. I really like the mini, and I’m happy with how the quick and dirty paint job turned out. The guy to the right is unknown to me, no idea where he’s from. Got him in a lot when buying the Metal Magic paladins.

That’s it for now. Next time I’ll have a short battle report for you. Honest!
