Great job on that Mercenary, I love the colour scheme. I remember painting mine was a bit of a chore too. You could break it up a bit, with every 3 mercs completed you could treat yourself (and us) to a Wizard of Morcar. Or a doofus ;)

Cheers, Pancho! No dice regarding those Wizards of Morcar, however, as I still don't own any of those models. My men-at-arms are from the "Advanced Quest Edition".

The good news, however, is that you won't have to wait long for Grak, as I have been painting him this afternoon...

...and he's just about finished:

As always, let me know what you think! :)

I really like this one. He has a lot of character with his rummy nose and funny hat. Is that the shield from the chaos marauders set?

Ah I didn’t remember that you don’t have the Wizards of Morcar models. I’m sure they’ll be yours soon if you keep a lookout. I have the Wizards but could only find a few men-at-arms when I dug out my Heroquest stuff from storage a few years back. So I made up the numbers with a few Advanced Heroquest guys too, plus some other Warhammer Imperials.

Cheers for the kind words, guys! :)

@ Pancho: Haha, the nose was a bit of a spontaneous idea, but I am glad you like it! The shield did indeed come from the old plastic Chaos Marauders set.

@ Weltenlaeufer: Thanks a lot, mate! :) Fun fact, Grak only really took about an hour to paint, minus drying time. Quick fun, indeed! ;)

@ Ampersand: Thanks a lot, Ampersand! Your blog was an important point of reference when I started painting my HeroQuest set, so I appreciate your comment all the more! :)

And yeah, the Gargoyle already made an appearance a couple of pages back, but just in case, here he is again:

So, I added some finishing touches to the last two models I painted this weekend:

Image

Grak is now officially finished and has been varnished:

Image

Image

And here he is next to his dear old father Ulag, both ready to be slain by an enterprising group of heroes ;)

Image

As for my Man-at-Arms, I realised the guy wouldn't really qualify as a proper test model without the different weapon alternatives, so I quickly painted those as well:

As always, let me know what you think! :)

Cheers again, ampersand! Regarding the photo background, that's actually no folder, but rather the cover of the official Final Fantasy XII hint book ;)
