I've finally managed to get the bases of the mounted archers done, I kept to the same theme as the previous units but added bigger rocks in part because the bases where bigger and in part because the unit is good at going through difficult terrain (have the pathfinder special rule), which makes sense them … Continue reading Ranger Tracked
I've finished off my 4th (and final for the unit) Ranger Tracker foe my Night's Watch force, I still got to base the unit but I'll do that all together. This model was by far my favourite, to me it sums up a hunter, arrow ready waiting for the perfect shot while moving the horse … Continue reading Hunting Wildlings
Been continuing work on my mounted Nights Watch unit with the 3rd horse now done. Went for a dark brown horse this time around, and as a result decided to give the rider ginger hair to help add a bit of colour to the model. This is at actually my least favourite sculpt in the … Continue reading Three is a Brotherhood
So finished the second mounted ranger tonight for the Nights Watch. This time I tried to do a chestnut horse while giving the rider a pale complexion with brown hair, to ensure these bits stand out from the black clothing but also give variation in the unit. Please on the whole, the horse again I … Continue reading It’s a Horse of Course
So I finished (save the base) my first mounted model for the Game of Thrones game I've got into, A Song of Ice and Fire. This is a Ranger Tracker of the Nights Watch, these champions are the eyes and eyes of the Nights Watch ranging Fire and wide north of the Wall that the … Continue reading A Horseing Along
Well I'm currently well into my new game A Song of Ice and Fire and painting my Night's Watch. I've even booked myself in at a tournament in October! So while painting is great I've wanted to do a bit so simple modeling and found a perfect excuse. In this war game you activate a … Continue reading The bird has gone
Next up on my Night's Watch force for A Song of Ice and Fire is Bowen Marsh the First Steward of Castle black. Now I must be honest I did not recall him from the TV series but a quick search on the old interweb revealed he is present. He is also in the first … Continue reading For the Stewards!
I managed to finish off my first unit on Nights Watch, some Sword Brothers, they are the standard troop unit but really pack a punch due to their massive swords and some intens training. I really enjoyed doing these used some more sponge work for the dirt and finish their bases the same way I … Continue reading Men (and wolf) in Black
So I had a bit of an issue yesterday on how to sort a base out that was part of the model and I had already painted it. So I asked on my post and the mighty TIM http://theimperfectmodeller.co.uk had an interesting suggestion of carving the flag stones I was after into the base. So … Continue reading TIM to the rescue!
So I think I've just finished (well still needs to base) another Nights Watch member. This time Aemon the Maester of Castle Black. This rather learned older gent does not go on the battle field but rather sits on the sidelines so to speak as a None Combatant Unit, and helps the other units doing … Continue reading Maestering the dirt
