I painted some more heroes to add to my D&D party and with those I'm almost have the most recent group ready. After that I also got to some more Haqqislam miniatures that might just get me started with the Dashat mercenaries.
|Pict 731: Human Captain, Gnome Wizard|
|Pict 732: Schicksalspfade Captain|
|Pict 733: Schicksalspfade Captain|
I once again painted a model from the game Schicksalspfade. I really had problems finding a simple fighter with a shild and a sword - I would have liked for him to have a cloak as well but for one I didn't find a suitable model in my usual miniature lines. And after looking through my several boxes of unpainted miniatures, I found this guy already in my possesion. I enjoyed doing the back of the shield (he isn't really holding it to protect himself?) and after I was at a stage where I would usually call a model done, I also went back in and did some darklining.
|Pict 734: Gnome Illusionist / Thief|
|Pict 735: Gnome Illusionist / Thief|
Similar to my search for a human fighter was quite vexed to get my hands on a (male) Gnome Wizard. This miniature by Otherworld is the only one that fit the bill to an extend. He is marked as an illusionist as well as a thief and for example the dagger in the right boot does not quite fit my image of a wizard. Nevertheless I liked to paint the blue cloak as a somewhat more expensive cloth. The gem in the left hand also fits very well, since the character represented by the miniature has the guild artisan (jeweler) background.
|Pict 736: Hunzakut, Bahshi Bazouk|
And here then are the next two Haqqislam miniatures. I pretty much got through all of the miniatures I had for the Hassassin sectorial and with these two I might dip into the mercenary Dashat Company. But I want to at least try and paint more of the vanilla Haqqislam / Qapu Khalqi ones before I go out to buy some more...
|Pict 737: Female Mage (Darksword) WIP|
Other than the other heroes, this miniature however was a quick
find. I like to go browse the Darksword category Visions in
Fantasy to look for characters and when I was on the lookout for a
druid, this miniature was a natural fit. I inverted the colours of the
cloak and tunic of the official paintjob since I like the contrast between
the bright orange and the framing muted green but thought the orange cloak impractical when blending into the underbrush of a forest.
