Redwin: a comic book with Dwarfs

To be honest, I was a little bit sceptical about this title. I've found most of the fantasy production very disappointing in recent years. Drawing can be good, but more than often, the stories are awfully predictable.

In the end, the scenario of Redwin is quite convincing, and the illustrations (by Pierre-Denis Goux) are really really cool... including tens of dwarves ;) All the details can be found here.

If you buy it, you can find very inspiring sketches at the end of the comic book. A few samples (all found here):

Ulrog, Redwin's father

Rorgre, the King's surgeon (left) and the alchimist (right)

From left to right: Half-Ogre, Redwin and the Master of the Games


From left to right, top to bottom: Redwin's sword, Redwin, Enime, Rom and a Forge recruiter

From left to right: King, Talion Lord, Temple Lord and Shield Lord

Redwin's forge (left) and Ulrog's one (right)
The last one is my favorite: one day, I'll try to make some dwarf buildings for a battlefield... One day!

Skaven on hold

Hmm... it seems that I have some difficulties to put aside my dwarf army. So, to reduce (a little) my pile of unpainted lead, I've decided to rework my previously completed regiments and paint additional models to get multiples of 12.

Let's start with this old Assassin Miniatures model (you can read his story on the blog of his creator, who, 20 years later, sculpted these amazing Renaissance dwarfs). Not my favorite, but I'm running out of spearmen.

And now, this dwarf warrior/crossbowman (haven't decided yet where to put him). Really nice sculpt (as often with the Perrys), I probably should have spent more time on the beard. Anyway.

Troll slayers completed

I've realised that I had forgotten to post my unit of 12 troll slayers.

Omission corrected!
