The blog dedicated to the painting and collecting of Renaissance themed fantasy miniatures in the 28mm scale, including my own little private venture to commission specially made figures with that theme. The latter are not, at present, intended for a general release, but perhaps something can be arranged if you'd like a couple...
Orcs with Spears - Part 1
Along with the halfling from the other post, I painted a Foundry orc. It is one of the smaller "mercenary war orcs" and not one of the bigger "mercenary great orcs/ogres". I deliberately used no goblin green on the orc skin so it wouldn't look too similar to the base, but in the pictures it still does. Oh well, you'll just have to take my word for it that there is more contrast between the two in real life.
A classic GW halfling archer, because I wanted to paint something else than dwarfs. I really like the face.
Dwarf Crossbows - Part 5
Beginning to resemble a proper unit. Two more Marauder dwarfs. One conversion of a pikedwarf and one musician.
Dwarf Crossbows - Part 4
Got time to finish 4 more marauder dwarf crossbowmen. The one to the left is a conversion of the chainmail one (comparison pictures below). The two in the middle are conversions of dwarf spearmen (some recasts I got off ebay, not originals) with plastic crossbows. The one to the right is the third variant of the the ones with separate plug-in hands.
The conversion next to the original. He got greenstuff shoes, puffy sleeves and a feather with gem broche for his hat, as well as a new moustache to set him apart from the original. I'm quite happy with this one, he looks different enough from the original and of the two I think I like my converted one best.
Dwarf Crossbows - Part 3
4 more renaissance-themed dwarfs. The one with the eyepatch and pegleg is actually an old citadel Bugman's rangers champion, but he had the right look, so he joined this unit. The two in the middle came with separate plug-in hands (I also have handguns and spears for these guys). The one with the helmet and breastplate is a conversion of one of the speardwarves (not an original, but a recast I got (unknowingly) on ebay) with a plastic crossbow. A group shot with the others:
Dwarf Crossbows - Part 2
4 more marauder empire-themed dwarfs. Not as happy with these as with the other ones (yellow highlighs too harsh for one), but they'll do fine.
A line-up of the 4 painted Marauder ogres (so far), including the two I painted a couple years ago. I did a few minor touch-ups to the leader to bring him closer to my current painting standard, the other one was surprisingly acceptable for something I painted back then.
