Monday Miniatures: Gruff Grimecleaver
Another week – another pirate. That’s not a saying, but it should be.
Today I was in a restaurant and saw a child rejoicing in his summer vacation. I miss those days, and not just because my time for painting seems to be diminishing by the hour. In the next five weeks I need to: travel for work – twice, take on a new project, start packing, close on my new place, gather a few thousand dollars for said closing, attend a wedding in another time zone, unpack, and move in.
Needless to say, I do not expect to do much painting until mid-July. The rest of you had fewer excuses.
David B nails swarthy with his version of a dwarven pirate. Also – I don’t think the crazy eyes are an accident.
Brewster went with a very clean and nondescript finish on this one. He looks almost TOO bright eyed and bushy tailed.. I wonder what is in that pipe he’s smoking.
Arjen prefers fantasy models, sans guns, so he chopped it off and replaced it with a fish. As he says, you can always use more townspeople. How right he is – a dwarven fishmonger would definitely make for a unique NPC.
Antonia painted the most friendly and amiable looking of our dwarven pirates. I know – I’m scared too. The touches and little details are nice across the board as always, but its the stripped shirt that really brings this one out for me.
