More on Patrol and Dark Attack 54mm Fantasy Figures
Following on from my recent boot sale acquisition I thought it would be good idea to share pictures of what the actual models look like on their sprues and so here you are.
The box art from set 5001
Centaur Scouts - these are rather cleverly sculpted in my opinion
The box art from set 5002
Tomb Guards - got to have some animated skeletons!
Dwarf Squad - I thought it best to have another picture between them and the Elves for safety sake….
I have already given some thought to the make up of the opposing sides and any reader of fantasy literature will probably be able to work this out but if not my plan is this:
The Forces of ‘Good’ or ‘Light’
Elite Paladins (naturally!)
The Forces of ‘Evil’ or ‘Darkness’
Simple.straightforward and definitely stereotypical! The models themselves have prominent detailing which will help with the painting considerably. For my own part I will probably go with a more muted palette than the box art suggests - I am not a huge fan of overly garish looking fantasy figures, the odd splash of colour works well enough, just to brighten the figure rather than saturate it in colour!
Hark at me, worrying about artistic aesthetics!
Whatever next? :-)
