One of the reasons I joined the Lead Painters League was that I sometimes need a kick in the seat of my pants to get out of my comfort zone and paint something different.

In a bid to clear some shelf space, I have delved deeper into the foothills of terrain cluttering up the place. We start with the resin Summoning Circle terrain from the Oathsworn Burrows and Badgers: New Blood Kickstarter: The menhirs spell out “Oathsworn” in the elder Futhark (Norse Runic alfabet), here starting at […]Read More More Oathsworn Resin Terrain and other bits

Not sure what is supposed to be […]Read More Oathsworn: Clan McFiggin’s Ancient McFiggin

They have done everything by themselves, making moulds and casting at home on their dinner table, and sharing the entire process via their excellent updates. Here are the first two bits I have done, the […]Read More Oathsworn Scatter Terrain, part 1: Tents

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).
