Female Barbarian



I went with a lighter skin tone this time as I'd like to see some variety in the warband. I almost did her hair red, but I'm going to save that for the one with the chain-mail bikini.

I'm developing a barbarian addiction. Last night I basically re-wrote the Crom rules to suit me better (more combat options, different dice pool, uses hexes.. Not really the same game anymore) after painting this little beauty.

Next, a Troll!

  3. Sexy, nice mini, do you paint groups of figures or 1 at a time?

  4. Man, you just keep getting better and better! I've been painting 15mm since the early 90s, and I weep with shame when I look at my 15s! How about doing a tutorial?

  5. Thanks guys, this is a lot of fun!

    Dan- Ordinarily I paint small groups but with these I am doing 1 at a time. It means I don't hurry and they come out better.

    Chris- I might do a tutorial soon, these figures are very easy to paint due to the clean and precise sculpting. I had more trouble with the Authorities by the Scene than with these.

  7. You are such an inspiration! I sat the entire evening with a pint of bugmans XXX and some greenstuff, and voila, an almost finished 15mm barbarian. My first attempt at 15mm sculpting, all thanks to you mate!

  8. WOW. I need to paint up some of my 15mm sci-fi so I can order some 15mm fantasy :D

    I mentioned it in an earlier post, but Copplestone also has even tinier 10mm fantasy minis: http://www.copplestonecastings.co.uk/range.php?range=FAN

    I painted up the "Heroes and Halflings" set, which is of course the Fellowship of the Ring with a few extra randoms thrown in. The extras include two nice barbarian minis and a hooded dwarf.

  9. I've thought about 10mm, but for me it's the in-between scale. Those figures are really nice though, and your paint jobs are terrific!

  10. Ya you sold me ... I'm in. I honestly with there were more complete ranges for 15 MM fantasy in general. I have really been thinking about 15 MM D&D ... 15 MM is really a better scale for the way many DMs run their games. Besides ... you could use dragons that were actually in scale to the adventurers (and it wouldn't cost you $500.00 to do so!). Doing large dungeons would be a snap. You could represent hordes on a 1 to 1 basis ... 100 goblins ... hmm ... ok no problem guys! I'm very excited about the future of 15 MM fantasy in this regard!
