Crooked Dice Cultists and Sinister Mystic

A few early and late night painting sessions at the start of the week has enabled me to get all the cultists done for my Children of the Fields Cast. The four hooded types are Crooked Dice as is the Sinister Mystic in the centre who comes from Villains 1 pack.

The four bearded fellows with various vintage firearms are by Westwind in their Empire of the Dead Brotherhood range. I had these left over after selling on most of my collection lurking in a box I found. Seeing the variety of older weapons I thought the would fit in with the background for Winterly being isolated and behind the times.

The Villagers sadly are going to have to wait I think now as one nights this  week and two next week are being taken up with High School open evenings that we need to go to. My eldest Daughter Carmen has got to decide which one she will goto  next year when she finishes Year 6. Crikey that has gone way to quick!!

 I am glad to get these done but am fed up of painting green for a bit!



 
The sinister mystic

 Brotherhood with guns. Love the Blunderbuss and Volleygun armed ones.
The faces on these where really nice to paint. the hair surrounding the faces on some are a nice touch if a little bit tricky to paint.


The Whole cast so far. Up next I am going to try and tackle the Strawman he as been primed, basecoated and just been drowned in AP Strong tone once thoroughly dried lots of drybrushing is to be done.

  3. Green is an unusual colour choice, red white purple and black seem to be the most popular, so well done for being different :) These are looking very nice, and the hairy faces might be a bit of a pain to paint but they do add character

    1. Thanks very much sir! Yeah I wanted them to have a bit more druidy feel to them with all the sort of natural creatures and things.

  4. I have to agree with what Vagabond said - it's a nice change to see green-robed cultists.

  7. The cast look sinister and fearsome. A real Green menace. I really like the idea of doing more with English folklore.

  11. The minis look great!

    Whichever school you choose, maybe Carmen could help you with grammar.

    “My daughter and us.” Good grief man!

    1. Thanks Andy. There will be some red ones at some point maybe with a bit of black in there. They will for my Shiva cast and probably Pulp gaming.

    1. Thanks Joe I felt green was the right colour for this folklore themed cast.

      I will have some more traditional type ones at some point.
