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.
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.
Have you seen this ? Frostgrave Dwarfs, Elves and Goblins as plastic boxed sets announced !
Later this year, North Star Military Figures and Osprey Games will be releasing a new range of fantasy miniatures, beginning with a plastic box set of Dwarf Infantry! 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.
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.
Hope you like what you see! More of my Wildling army over the next weeks.
The Intermodellbau is a very big modeling convention held annually in the Westfahlenhalle in Dortmund. Arguably it is the biggest convention of its kind in Europe. You can see Miniature figures, plastic models, radio controlled models, Dioramas, railroad models etc. The complete convention center is used , that is 8 very big halls each more or less as big as Salute! Below you see a paper model of the convention center in 1/250 scale:
Not Lego models:
And last but not least paper models, yes that is correct , everything you see below was made from paper:
Thats it for this year . It was a great convention were all sorts of modeling stuff could be seen . I think it is nice sometimes to see what other people are doing in their spare time. The paper models are absolutely stunning and labors of love as there are hundreds of hours spend to build them.
