some skeletons

Post by Ghost » Sun Sep 10, 2017 4:31 pm

Hello,

I am a french wargamer and I am interested in open combat. In order to test the rule I painted two warbands : the good forest goblins and their terrible foes, the shieldmaidens.

Here are some pics of the warbands :

Another pic to show the sizes of the minis :

I hope I can play to the game very soon to see how good it is.

ehrm.. wow!

your painting skills are exceptional to say the least.
the bases are awesome and i like the small details like the red face of the hornblower maiden for example!
i like the minis too, what range(s) are they from?
and is that dog Scooby Doo?

Hello,

Thank you for these kind words ! I have some small skills but imho the most important is the long paintig time I spend for each mini.
These minis come from different manufacturers :
- the dog, the running shieldmaiden and the sorceress with the hands up are from hasslefree
- the other members of the shieldmaidens warband are from "brother vinni's"
- all the minis of the goblins warband are from redbox game

The dog was certainly inspired by Scooby Doo. I loved it for a long time him and I wanted him in any of my games.

Hello, I painted a new warband, the seven dwarves. They are made by Tremanor, from Red Box Games :

They are on some 15mm diameter bases, here a picture to compare the sizes of an human and a dwarf :

Next warbands to be painted : some elves and some skeletons.

Vraiment beau!

Je viens de recevoir mon livre de Open Combat. Je n'ai que les figurines de Shadespire mais je vais m'y attaquer bientôt!

Open Combat est vraiment un jeu intéressant, d'autant plus si certains modules annoncés par des membres sortent rapidement (poudre noire et magie). C'est amha simple et élégant, seul point à améliorer selon moi, c'est de faire une carac corps à corps et une de tir.

Les figs de shadespire sont sympa, j'ai les squelettes qui sont vraiment magnifiques.

Some new elves, female rangers :

One elf wizard and this warband will be completed !

A treeman, the base is 4cm diameter : he is really tall, more than the troll.

He will join the elves. This miniature is originally a Bloodbowl player from Starplayer Miniatures !
