As noted before, circumstances have required me to purchase some new fantasy models for Dragon Rampant, rather than relying on my old collection.
Now, I'd gone off of painting historical minis some time ago and never quite refound my inspiration. But these fantasy models - wow! I couldn't tell you why, but I've REALLY enjoyed painting them.
Maybe it takes me back to my youth. Maybe I'm free of 'correct colours'. Maybe it's the smaller batches I work on. Maybe its the freedom of painting what I fancy rather than what I need.
Whatever the 'maybes' may be… It's damn fine fun.
I'm still not a talented painter, but these do the job nicely: Reaper Bones plastic paladin and barbarian. Lovely!
