Fantasy. Why not?
A colleague and I plan to offer a role-playing club (in addition to the simulation games club I currently offer) next year, so I decided to dig up some fantasy lead that was at the bottom of my pile and give it a go. I started with two 28mm centaurs, because I like centaurs, and a 15mm balor who is there to give my Arthurian troops a fright. He looks a little puny next to the centaurs. That should teach him to lay off the potions of diminution.
While the photography is up to my usual crummy standard (gotta build a lightbox one of these days), I am quite pleased with how the centaurs turned out. The faces in particular are the most lifelike I have ever painted. I credit the snazzy new sable brush you can see in the background.
