Mustn’t forget Nux with his little friends Barry and Larry, scratching away at his throat…

I am painting up three thugs for Frostgrave, but only one is finished:
The Brothers Grimm. This is Goat, the middle brother. The two youngest are naturally good at avoiding trolls.

The Necromancer for the Frostgrave “evil” warband:
Dark Lord Sepulchro Morbidius, Great and Terrible Master of Death Itself, (real name Mervyn).
and Silly Simon, his apprentice. Who used to be a dwarven shoemaker before putting on the pointy hat of the dark arts. Fond of strap ‘n’ leather buttockless trousers and cream pies.

…We call it Master and Servant…
Companion to the Hellknight, the Anti Paladin:
Not really satisfied with the cloak, but then again, cloaks are not my forte.
This one was painted similarily to the Hellknight. Both are meant for the evil warband for frostgrave as swordsmen / knights. This one might also be a captain if it comes to that.
He reminds me of Mola-Ram, that heart-wrenching high priest of the Thugee clan.
I imagine these are the kinds of people that would eat deliscious eyeball soup, followed by chilled monkey brain for dessert.

A random mini for my first warband for Frostgrave:
This one did not want to be photographed. None of the photos do it justice. Either too dark or too bright, the colours and gradients seem to dissappear whatever I do.
*sigh*…The need to do something abouit a lightbox increases…
At any rate, for this mini I played around with coloured washes and inks on top of very dark metal. I was going for a Darkly Colourful Evil kind of impression…I think it turned out ok, at least IRL, apart from the sword that for some reason I simply could not draw straight lines on.
He has a companion done in a similar fashion, but who is not finished yet. Watch this space!

Painting the following mini reminded me of a special song from days gone by:
I had it grinding in my head the whole time while painting it. I wonder why…
I actually picked this one to be part of my “evil” Frostgrave warband, as an archer or marksman.
