Re: Suber's HeroQuest

A friend recently handed me over this lovely guy, a Citadel Barbarian dated 1985.

I've fulfilled the Commandments of Oldhammer and have included some checkers and at least one pice in bright red :lol:.

Image

I'm using him as an alternate Barbarian for my HeroQuest.

Re: Suber's HeroQuest

Latest addition are these pig-faced Orcs by Otherworld. I'm aware that not everyone will like the pig concept, but I find them terribly hilarious, and like every other Otherworld mini, they are pure love.

The icing on the cake was this 'Hogman' by Hasslefree (I do love Hasslefree). Fits in the group and makes a nice leader:

So here they are!

On the blog, as usual...

I was after some Crooked Claw Goblins, but now that the shop is closed :( I'll have to look for some alternatives...

Fantastic orcs, Suber. And the different skin colours are brilliant ;)

Re: Suber's HeroQuest

Great orcs love the attitude and even the pig faces but less so the Hasselfree doesn't quite have the same feeling about it.

Re: Suber's HeroQuest

Thank you! Well, of course the Hasslefree sculpt is quite different to the others; I considered sculpting some cloak, cap or anything to make him more lookalike to the others, but I finally let it be.

I've got another dungeon dweller, Hasslefree again. I was looking for some Chaos Warriors to provide some company to my HQ ones. I saw this one and fell in love. I first tried some colour on. Nothing too risky, classic red:

Buuuut... Honestly, I didn't see it. This is my nemesis, one of those things you see other people achieve gorgeously, but each time I try, I fail. Miserably. I simply cannot make colours work on this kind of armour.
Then I tried a totally different approach. Brass!

Not any wonder, but at least this allows me to sleep :roll:.

I'm aware there's quite a difference between this sculpt and the original HeroQuest Chaos Warriors, but nevertheless I hope it can work. When I get my Pantheon of Chaos Warriors I'll get another chance to try colours again...

I don't want to wake you up again, but I like the red version better. I would perhaps have added some lighter edge highlights, but otherwise that mini looked very good in red :D

Re: Suber's HeroQuest

Sorry to say I prefer the red as well, don't be too negative that guy looked chaotic enough for me.

Re: Suber's HeroQuest

I think that the brass version looks better - maybe because it seems darker in the recesses between the armor plates, which creates a nice contrast. Maybe that's what was missing on the red version.

Re: Suber's HeroQuest

Haha, I can see there are different opinions, that's a good thing! :D
I still need to find my inner peace with color. I promise to try again! :!:
