'Fatboy' Raider with Crossbow

Well last week really was a lazy week painting wise. The lovely warm weather and sadly a lot of Hayfever which seems terribly bad this year meant I was really not in the mood for any painting. It wasn't wasted though I did assemble, base and prime all of my Orcnar force for Relics. Which now needs me to make my mind up on a colour scheme!

Managed to pick up the brushes for a few hours Sunday morning after waking up mega early and everyone else sleeping in meant I got one finished and about a single session away from completion.

This raider warband will be quite a low tech one mostly bows, crossbows and a couple of shotguns/pistols. With a good mixture of melee weapons mixed in. This brings me up to a total of three raiders finished and armed with a shotgun, bow and crossbow so far. Theres six left on the paint table a flame thrower, assault rifle, chain and knife and sword and brass knuckles, dual pistols and a second flame throwerI have converted into a sort of gas powered spear/dart gun (Counts as crossbow). Not sure about the assault rifle guy yet but he fits the gang so perhaps I'll keep for upgrades later on.

  12. I have this guy to paint somewhere also from some years ago. No idea which company made the sculpt?

    I like your version. His piggy-eyes really help him look suitably slovenly.

  16. Great job, Simon. You've really brought out the best this mini has to offer.

    One should never insult a half-naked man with a crossbow but it appears he's raided the all-you-can-eat buffet once too often.
