The Warlock from the Nightfolk Range

Definitely got the bug to paint some Fantasy stuff. Having a mooch through the paint queue to see what to paint next and decided to grab these guys out and give them some brush love. Quite a quirky fantasy range chunkier miniatures than what i'm used but they have such lovely character and for my intended use of a Labyrinth theme project the fit in perfect. There has been many releases since I picked these up over a month ago some awesome looking knights and some more quirky characters.

The Warlock was a real joy to paint lots of nice details such as the feathers and the fur rimmed cloak as well as the gnarled staff all have such tremendous detail. The Bird is even greater I really didn't know how to do it so have made up my own breed and colour scheme which I'll just call a Fae Hawk :)

I'm planning on going to the Derby World Wargames Show on the 4th and 5th October and will be picking up some more from this range as the Northumbrian Tin Soldier will have his stall there. Anybody planning on going? I'll be going on the Saturday most likely.

    1. Thanks very much I really really enjoyed painting him such a fun character and him being bigger than most figures I normal paint made it so much more enjoyable.

  13. He's fantastic! That's a beard, right? It always looks like teeth on the first sight to me :P.

  15. Outstanding, mate. Some quality brush love there.
    I like everything about that figure, but I especially like the fox skin cape he's wearing.
    I also like the fact that while he looks odd, he doesn't exactly look evil. But I wouldn't want to meet him in a dark wood at midnight. :)
    Bravo.
