Huntarr - finished!

Huntarr Aliens
15 mm scale

It's been a challenging couple of weeks in parenthood, but I managed to squeeze in a few minutes here and there to finish these mean boys off.







The figures themselves: Honestly not my most careful paint jobs ever, but I like em!  They have the "feel" I was going for, and as a bonus I managed to not break the one guy's spear.  I swear I thought it would never survive...  The chieftain's cloak is supposed to be some sort of scaly reptilian hide, I'm not sure if it's from a BIG animal, or a bunch of Garn skins sewn together ;D

Basing:  I'm still not sure about the green plants, but I think the forest floor effect turned out really well. It's not out-of-scale either which is good, because I've used this method for 28mm minis as well.

  3. Very nice. I really like the way you still provide contrast across a mini but still keep the look dark. (I know I keep saying that, but it's one of my favorite things about your painting.)

  4. Glad everyone likes these :) As I mention in my post, hobby time is scarce lately, but I'll see if I can whip up a little tutorial for doing this base style, and post it here.

  5. I can only echo what has gone before-terrific painting Allison. I really like these figures, and have ordered some just on the strength of these posts- thanks very much! (I have finally finished painting all of my Riflethings in your grey/white colour scheme and I'm fairly pleased with the result, although they're not a patch on yours). What colour did you use on the flesh of the Huntaars? It looks a bit like GW's Vermin Brown or similar.
