Oathsworn Miniatures have some fantastic, old school miniatures, in the style of the period when Citadel Miniatures had soul, also known as “Oldhammer”. Oathsworn is a cottage industry company, consisting of sculptor Michael Lovejoy and his lovely and talented wife, Jo (who is learning to sculpt as we speak). With 5 or 6 successful kickstarters under their belt, great communication and behind the scenes how-its-made guides and video clips, last but not least delivering on schedule, with consistently high quality every time. I cannot recommend Oathsworn enough.
This is the kind of company I would buy almost anything from, just to support them and their work, even if I never got around to actually painting anything…something which I intend to correct in the coming months.

First out is the Fire Giant or Efreeti.
With his asbestos loin cloth.
As you see, I am trying out some new backdrops I printed off from massive voodoo and miniarmyhugetimesink.
Yes, I see the brighter spot should have been directly behind the mini and not to the top, but in this case I chose to do it like that. Cause of the flaming sword. Yeah, right. So that’s settled then. Totally not because I am a complete noob at this. Learn from my mistakes.
at any rate: Which one is better?
Did I mention that I struggle with flames? Turns out I not only struggle with, but actively detest painting lava-like crusts as well. Hence the not so impressive paint job. I simply do not have the patience.
Which means that Balrog will be sitting around for a while before I take a stab at painting it…
Metal, 40mm base.
