Burrows and Badgers Mole Warrioress and Mouse Nun

Continuing on very much with the Burrows and Badgers minis this week I have got another pair finished. The Mole Warrioress who I have named Gwern and a Mouse Nun who I shall use as a mage called Lilith.

The Mole  who I intend to use as a knight has had a freehand emblem painted on her shield  copied from the Beaver that I have to gpt in the queue. 

It is not quite central but I am still please with it. More practice in where to start is need I think.

  8. The freehand on that mole's shield is awesome.
    While I wasn't too sure about your choice for the nun's dress colours, on a second look they are actually quite well chosen.
    Fantastic brushwork

    1. Cheers Wouter. I think the issue that bothers me is the brown or black clothing would not contrast as well with any fur colours I could think of. Besides stepping as a magic user makes just as much sense.

      I am not sure what to do with the mole Friar as he works his way up the paint queue.

  11. I still don;t get it, but as always your painting is worthy of praise - great idea painting the shield as a flower.
