Creoda, a really big wolf!

I finished Creoda, Guthwulf – figure from Mierce Miniatures. This mini was wonderfully sculpted by Allan Carrasco based on this concept art from talented Stefan Kopinski:

Creoda

The figure had fur texture, but apart from his neck and tail it was too subtle to use drybrush. I preshaded it with airbrush and then I randomly applied thin lines of lighter color, more or less corresponding with direction of sculpted hair. I wasn’t too precise, as I didn’t want to spend years painting every single hair. The finished effect is just fine for gaming miniature.

Here is how it looks with other finished miniatures from Anglecynn fraction in world of Darklands:

Vikings Jarl

Every vikings warband needs a Jarl to lead them into victory. Here is one that I painted recently. It’s made by Hasslefree Miniatures and is called Ulfred. It’s my first miniature from this company and I was pleasantly surprised with quality of the cast and sharp details. I painted him in rather bright colors, just as my other vikings.

Of course the fact that he looks similar to Ragnar Lothbrok from Vikings TV series is just a coincidence 🙂

M4 Sherman

Some time ago I thought: why not to paint an armored vehicle for a change? So here it is – M4 Sherman in 1/56 (28mm) scale, an American World War 2 tank. It’s made by Italeri for Bolt Action wargame. It’s my first 28mm vehicle so I used it as test subject for practising airbrush painting and weathering. I didn’t study any historical documentation – it’s made out of the box. Assembly was simple (because of reduced number of parts) and took me one evening.
I focused more on painting. The main color is olive drab, highlighted with adding a little yellow. Single color paint scheme for US WW2 vehicles was an advantage for me. I used inks instead of washes for shading, as I did not have any. Making the paint chipping and scratches was my favourite part. In the end I applied dry pastels for dirt and dust effects.
What do you think about my experiment? Would you like to see more tanks in future or should I stay with figures? 🙂
