So this week I’ve been chipping away at some more Night’s Watch from A Song of Ice and Fire miniatures game. As this is a big units sort of game I’ve taken a slightly different track to how I normally do things, I’ve chosen to get the whole unit going at once. So I’m currently at ghe base coats znd washes done, with layering and fine details (like eyes) to do along with some weathering and the bases.
That means from a distance like the shots above they look decent, and I’m please with the overall look of the unit. I feel there is enough black so people can tell who they are but enough variations to make it look enjoyable. I also think the variations help it look more realistic, a group living at the top of the civilised world formed by convics, bastards and people looking to leave their old life would all have perfectly matching shoes and gloves.
Up close obviously the need for some layering and fine detail stands out but they are working for me at this stage as well, considering I’ve painted them quickly (for me).
I’ve also started an idea for a snow landscape base on a test base but it’s still drying.
I’ve also got around to playing 2 “proper” games since my demo game and still think the game is very interesting. Lots of thinking about positioning and when to activate a unit but with a simple set of cord rules! So really a shot from behind the unit is what I should card about as they advance on the foe on the opposite side of the table!
Finally if anyone has any other black related titles for these posts please let me know, as you can tell I’m scraping the barrel a bit already!
