ASOIAF Lannister Army

Last week I finished off my Lannisters:









Then did a two boxes of Neutrals - heroes (incl Varys and Petyr Baelish) and the oh so intimidating Bolton Flayed Men:

ASOIAF Halbardiers and the Mountain's Men

Just finished off the Lannister half of the starter box along with the Lannister Heroes 1 box. These are great models, really enjoyed painting them with a mix of Citadel contrast and Vallejo highlights. I think Cersei is my favourite - and she's a formidable NCU in the game.

And next comes something completely different ... ASOIAF

 Towards the end of January I finished off my Mantic stuff including Clansmen:


Scarecrows:

Spectres:

A Reaper Bones model who will work as the Ice Queen:


And a unit of Arctic fox chaff:


Then for my birthday, I plunged into A Song of Ice and Fire by Cmon games. I have been admiring the miniatures and after watching a bunch of battle reports and reading reviews, the game sounds very good. So, I picked up the Starter and here is my first unit of Lannister guardsmen:

More fun with contrast paints ... and welcome 2021

I have been fairly busy hobbying but unmotivated to post - not sure why that is. I find it useful to keep track of projects here and to occasionally share and hear from co-hobbyists. Somehow COVID makes everything a chore!

Anyhow - here is the assortment of stuff I have done over the past few weeks including the holidays. Almost everything done with contrast paints as I test them out:


More Mantic Clansmen:

Mantic Scarecrows:



Mantic Spectres:
Reaper townies



Assorted Reaper adventure figures:



Reaper big orcs and a bat covered tombstone:


Mantic Snow Trolls:

GW Dwarves


A Reaper worm
Mantic Butchers:


Mantic assorted Nightstalker figs:

I now have about a dozen or so contrast shades and have experimented with mixing them to get some of the intermediate shades for the Nightstalkers. I think they work pretty well on figs that have a lot of rough textures, not so great on smooth surfaces.
