From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Two more fantasy heroes have been painted. The motivation this time is that they are good analogues for heroes in my game currently in development. In reality these are a pair of old Games Workshop models from decades past. The Woodsman was released along with the Talisman: The Adventure expansion back in 1986 or thereabouts. The elf dates from the early 2000s (I think) and was released for the Mordheim skirmish games set in the Warhammer world. Comparing the two figures side by side, the detail on the elf seems finer and crisper than on the woodsman.
The elf was an impulse buy as I liked the figure. The Woodsman was an engagement gift. If you want an idea of how long it has been waiting to be painted, I recently celebrated my 15th anniversary.
