    One of the nicest Dark Age sculpts going IMO, Footsore is the old Musketeer Miniatures and they make some cracking miniatures with a handy Dark Age range.

    That is beautiful work you have done on the face and hair. Truely outstanding! What paints are you using for the flesh tones and the hair? The face is superb and when I expanded the photo, I was amazed at the micro shading which gives the face such character. They (face and hair) look very good indeed. The cape is very good too. Please post the figure again when it is complete. It’s an inspiring work in progress. Well done, sir! thanks for posting this.

    Cheers and good gaming.

    Thanks Rod the flesh is from Reaper Master Series tanned skin triad which is my “go to” set (with adjustments if needed) and I make a wash of a dark tan to glaze over, so effectively this is a little darker than the paint out of the bottle. The fur is giving me trouble, I wanted to do a fox pelt but my eyes aren’t up to shading it properly so I might have to change it…. and I stuffed up the pattern of the fur. And no not all of my painting is to this standard I liked the figure and wanted to make a show piece.

    Norm Footsore have a couple of character sets that are beautifully sculpted, just superb and well worth the money, I would have bought them even if I wasn’t into the period. I’ll add that Saxon Miniatures (new company) also do some really beautiful Dark Age and late Roman figures that are a must have if it is your thing.

    A tad more to Aella, think the fox pelt cloak is as good as I can manage. Trust a fruit fly to land just as I take a photo…
