More Chainmail figures from my shelf of shame. The archer has seen some use in my Frostgrave warband, while the ranger mostly just needed his cloak finished off, and a few details picked out. Since I didn’t want to do a major repaint on either figure, this was mostly a case of dealing with the details and basing them both.
For the archer, she got a little color added to the leather helmet. After years of seeing what leather workers can do with both shapes and colors, this seemed an obvious choice. A little bit of touching up on the armor to bring out the highlights and darken the shadows. Then the hair… It was the same brown as the armor before, and I decided to make her a redhead using Reaper’s red hair triad, same as I did on the familiar.
The ranger got his cloak repainted to match basically every other grey/white fur cape I’ve painted. I really should work on a few other colors or patterns… I gave the quiver of arrows some paint, and painted the blades of the axes. I highlighted the hafts of the axes too. He also got the same hair as the archer.
For bases I think I'm going to opt for a more traditional wilderness spring/summer base, at least for her. The ranger might get the snowy Frostgrave style base.
