Just had time to get some quick snaps of these figures before Madame Padre and I head to cottage country in the Muskokas for a spot of leave. These fantasy figures will be part of my wood elf host that will augment some of the scantily clad nymphs shown here recently.
I wanted an elven mage, a top-level magic user in Dragon Rampant terms, with an appropriate retinue on the base to show that she means business. My friend James kindly gave me the casting of the lady with her arm I raised. I have no idea who made this sculpt, but I felt that she deserved some special treatment, and I started looking out for some figures to accompany her on a single over-sized base. I also gave her a tree, because she’s an elf princess, and they like to have trees in their close protection detail.
“Go and rouse your tree-sisters, the orcs are coming!” The other figure is a Forest Spirit from Bombshell Miniatures. I liked this figure because it complements the matriarchal theme of my elven host, which draws mostly on Wargames Foundry figures, though I will be offsetting it with some male LOTR GW figures. The Forest Spirit is a lovely figure, rather unimaginatively painted, I fear. It’s a pity her face isn’t well lit in these photos, as it is full of character. She will also count as a single-base model in Dragon Rampant terms, though I am not sure what troop type she should be. Thoughts?
The little nymph is one of the extras included in a Wargames Foundry blister. She has purple butterfly wings, which you can’t really see well. Good thing, as they clash with her gown. The lovely little boar is a Bombshell mini, from their Sidekicks line of figures. Wow betide any orc that gets too close to his lady.
The little ram is another Bombshell mini. He was fun to paint as well. Pricey figures, but Bombshell makes some great accent figures.
I am hopeful that these figures will see action when James and I get together for another DR game in early October.
Many thanks for looking and blessings to your brushes!
