I am back with more work on the Bear Clan
. The first figures I decided to paint up are the rank and file bears - if that makes any sense!
These were frankly very easy to paint up and they were ready in an afternoon.
The painting was quick and fun.
Basically, I gave them the base coat, then a darker wash. After which I dry-brushed them twice with successively lighter shades. The last step was to add shadows with watered down dark brown and black - and viola a horde of bears!
The models were glued onto the multi-base and I added putty for the ground work basis. I am really getting fond of this unit.
I also finished the conversion work on the were-bears. I found some old 54mm scale Celtic shields from an old plastic Celtic set. I think the set was an Italieri infantry set. The bottom line is that they fit very nicely with the were-bears.
The conversion work has established two different characters for the were-bears. One is a warrior in his prime, while the other is older but with a lot of fight in him yet. Now I just have to paint them up
Until next time, farewell and good health.
