Very good tutorial on Painting Skin

While I was surfing the internet I found a very good easy to follow tutorial on painting faces and hands. I was looking for this kind of tutorial as I want to change my method of painting skin. The tutorial is by Wargames , Soldiers and Strategy and can be found on you tube, or below for your convenience.

Hope you find it as useful as I did. I will ad more of these videos when I find others on the net , which might be useful to you and me.

 

The third Wildling archer

Here is the third Wildling archer. As I couldn’t go to Salute last weekend I used my time to paint up the third figure of my Wildling archer unit.

This is another strait build from the Frostgrave Barbarian plastic box.

The first figure of my Wildling Army

So with Easter out of the way and after a longer brake in painting Game of Thrones related figures, the Westfalia halfmen got in the way, here is the first figure of my Wildling bow unit for Dragon Rampant. The figure is a Northstar Barbarian figure.

The figure is kit bashed with a body and head from the Frostgrave Barbarian set, Arms from the Frostgrave warriors set, and arrows from a Perry war of the roses set.

More to come in the next days. This unit comprises 12 figures.

Each sprue from this set allows you to build 5 Dwarves armed with spears, hand weapons, or bows, with a huge variety of head options. They are also working on similar boxes for Elves and Goblins! There are no official release dates yet.

Lord of Bones Wildling chief

The Lord of Bones, also mocked as “Rattleshirt” by the brothers of the Night’s Watch, is a wildling leader of renown. He is called Rattleshirt due to his armor, which is made up of loosely-tied bones that clatter as he moves. He wears a broken giant’s skull as his helm.(Wiki of Ice and Fire). This is my take of him:

It is a Frostgrave barbarian body with a Frostgrave cultists head and some green stuff for the bones. He leads a 6 man unit of heavy Infantry ( two handed weapons ) for my Dragon Rampant Wildling army.
