Crooked Dice Beastman Heroes 3/4 Tygra and Panthro

 Finally got some decent weather the weekend to catch up on taking some pics. I finished off Tygra and Panthro last week after finally making do with what colours I had available for them both. I am quite pleased to get the last two finished. I have a resin print of the Thundertank to paint but not feeling brave enough to tackle that quite just yet.

I've got a 7TV event coming up in July. Its for 7TV Fantasy again so I am planning on taking one of three casts for it. At the moment its a toss up between the Thundercats which I would need to do the Tank and count it as some sort massive creature for as there are no models for Wilykit, Wilykat or Snarf as yet. 

Second choice is a Goblin themed warband I have probably around half this cast painted already and have a good chunk of figures ready to be painted to bulk the warband out. I must admit this option is sitting at the top of my list at the minute. I grabbed the remaining Goblins that I didn't have from Crooked Dice before Christmas as well as picking up the new Goblin King on Throne. I also picked up some of the new Sculpts from Otherworld Miniatures. so have got around 13 figures to paint but. They will look excellent enmass. I can't comment on how they will play though they are numerous but weak.

Finally an Elven Warband of which I have a single figure ready for. I am also am waiting on a Games Workshop made to order for Wood Elf Sentinels and Lady Galadriel so that adds waiting time on I love the LOTR Wood Elf sculpts and also added in some of the unarmoured Elves from Rivendell to give me some more sculpt choices. I would probably want a great eagle for this band which would give me an excuse to paint up the Red Kite model from Burrows and badgers as its only equipment is a breast plate which wouldn't look out of place amongst other ranges and the big bonus is I already have the figure.

  3. Very nice indeed Simon - where are you taking the photos - looks like a base of gravel path up against the backdrop of the side of your house?!

    1. Thanks very much! Its at the top of my garden its sort of on a retaining wall under the fence. I used to have a great little spot down the bottom but we had a new fence installed and the light was never the same. I need to sort out a light box of some sort but again its the issue of storing it.

  4. Great paint job Simon and you were right to wait until you could take the pictures outside as natural daylight is the best way to showcase models 👍😊

    1. Thank you Frank! I am going to make some sort of portable setup I think that I can put anywhere in the garden and take pics of it.

  8. Great work on the Thundercats models Simon, you've captured the original schemes really well. Hope you get the list sorted and choice of force done soon.

  9. O yes, these two look perfect mate. Here's hoping the sculptor releases those missing characters.
