the seventh Wildling archer

At the weekend I completed this archer for my Wildlings. I even managed to build some more Miniatures for a completely different army . The Army of “Tom of Rabeneck” a completely self made force for the GoT universe. I made up everything like heraldry etc. So watch this space for more. Here is the Wildling archer:

The dark age archers by Gripping Beast

IMG_3394This is the latest addition to my collection. The dark age archers boxed set by Gripping beast . There are 30 figures in the box . 3 figures on one sprue, 10 identical sprues. Here is a picture of the sprue back:

IMG_3391As you can see these are complete figures except for the head . So not much for scratchbuilders but if you want a lot of archers all losing an arrow this is the box for you . The heads are quite nice all bare headed so can be used for all kind of figures you can use them for the dark age warriors box by GB and vice versa .

Hope that helps in deciding to get a box or not . One last word though the right arms are not in a correct archers stance but thats only recognisable  for people who do some archery themselfs.

Next parcel in the post will be the Scandinavian  Infantry plastic boxed set by Fireforge .

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.
