|Banquo's Berserkers - the toughest sellswords this side of Loch Lochsmythe|
I have just managed to grab a couple of seconds to take a snap or two of my second little party of miniatures. If you remember, I hope to attend a game in Mansfield later on this month and each player needs to bring a small party of models to field. I so enjoyed putting together my Citadel barbarians earlier on this month I was eager to have another go. I chose to paint up some more of my McDeath models and put together a little unit around Banquo.
Juggo the dwarf didn't need any additional work. The clansman with the caber had his skin tone repainted as I wasn't happy with the original result and his tartan pattern was reworked to match that on the other models. Banquo (centre) was my first new model and was pretty straightforward as most of him is chainmail. The second clansman (with sword) was also a new model and one I really enjoyed painting. His tartan pattern was added to Banquo and the caber tosser to create a little cohesion, Finally, Raybees had his shield repainted in honour of the Scottish Saltire. Not wanting to repeat the same design for the sword wielding clansman, I opted to create a fairly symmetrical thistle motif for him - again using Scottish heraldry as inspiration.
I love this range of models and its a shame that so many of them are so hideously expensive.
I am looking forwards to the game at Slayer on the 28th all the more now!
