Paint Table Saturday#76


Just a very quick post today to document recent progress and the completion of this trio of miniatures.  During the challenge, I had a convoluted idea of producing a vignette for the 'Anti-Hero' bonus round based on the Solomon Kane story, 'The Moon of Skulls'.  In the end I ran out of time and the idea got shelved, but I was desperate to get the miniatures painted.



I had spent quite a bit of time tracking down a suitable candidate for Solomon Kane and was delighted when I happened upon this chap from 'Black Army Productions'.  The only thing is that he is rather shy  young man and the angle of the head, sculpted as it is, hides lots of the lovely details.


So next up the 'Warlord Games' Club Men, faces and bases done, just need to do the rest now!

  1. Wonder painting Michael, and a cracking mini of Solomon as well - well found, and I'll be picking him up at some point now (as I'm a huge fan of R E Howard's puritan). Those clubmen look rather splendid too.

  11. I love Solomon Kane despite his shyness. The African's look good too and what is Solomon Kane without Africa.

    1. Thank you Robert, he is certainly a brooding chap, which of course befits his character.

  12. Great work on the Africans, Michael. Kane's concealed face provides an air of mystery.

    1. Oh it certainly does that! I tried to raise him up on a box in the first picture, but to no avail - he just kept on brooding!

  15. Fantastic job Michael! That native girl is superb, the others are just as good, she's my favourite. Must be something to do with her thighs.
    Good to see you still alive and painting old boy.
