Darkroot plant for RoSD

I needed a Darkroot Plant for Rangers of Shadow Deep & I really couldn’t be bothered to scratch build one, so I had a look about & found some evil plants in the Alternative Armies 15mm ranges & thought that they would be suitable.


The Darkroot has a main body & vines that come up through the ground to attack your rangers or civilians.

GRENADIER MINIATURES FUTURE WARRIOR



I’ve recently painted an old Grenadier miniatures Future Warrior figure as a swap for a demon thing that I will use in RoSD. I’ve had this figure kicking about for about 25 years! It was nice ti finally get it painted 😁.
When I started thinking about what colours to paint him, I thought that his baseball cap looked very similar to Pokemon one that my youngest has, so I decided to paint him as if Ash from the cartoon had grown up into a post apocalyptic world
I made to Poké ball from a pin with a large plastic head & painted it up to resemble one.

Rangers of Shadow Deep The Blood Moon Scenario Special Characters

For The Blood Moon Scenario, for Rangers of Shadow Deep, you need 4 special characters that act as auxiliary companions in your Ranger Company.

This was a great excuse to paint up some random fantasy figures that I’ve got, one of them was probably started about 20 years ago 😳

First up is a figure to represent Nicolan, the 5th son of an aristocratic family.
This is an old Warhammer Quest Noble, this is the figure that was started a long time ago!



Next is Covin, an old soldier, he”s supposed to only have light armour & be missing some fingers, but I love this figure & didn’t have one without a shield. This figure is from the now defunct Lewis Collins Miniatures, now available from Ye Alchemist.
 


Next up is Seb, a former Lumberjack. Described as A large hulking dishevelled man.
This is another cracking figure, which is a unreleased miniature & given to me by Rumcara over on LAF. 
 


 
Finally is Orla, a young red haired Hunter.
This is one of the fantastic a plastic Female Frostgrave Soldiers

GIANT WORM THING FOR RANGERS OF SHADOW DEEP


I’ve made a Giant Worm thing foe Rangers of Shadow Deep. I’m way too tight to buy one, just to use in a couple of scenarios

I started off by making an armature from a couple of paper clips twisted together just to give it some strength, then mixed up some good old Milliput and rolled it out into a long sausage & wound it round the frame. I then stated making various lines on it with clay shapers & a home made sculpting tool, I roughed out the maw at the same time. This was left overnight to dry and i added the tendrils/teeth in the morning with green stuff & made the base from slate chippings.

I think it came out Ok. So I will find some paint at it & see what it looks like.

Another Clyde Barrow Miniature



Well I decided to paint another Clyde Barrow Partizan Miniature, this one is a gif though. 
When I get a break in the weather I will varnish him & put it on a clear base. 
I still have one of these figures left so I’m thinking that I might try and cut the shotgun off & swap it out for a BAR as this was his weapon of choice.

Finally Bonnie Parker Partizan Show Freebie Miniature



 I finally managed to get hold of the Bonnie Parker Partizan Miniature (Thank you Lawrence) 
It’s a cracking figure............... but not a great Bonnie 😞
I really wish she’d been sculpted wearing her famous “sweater dress”  as in the picture below 


The next thing is she’s very tall compared to Clyde, she was petite & only 4’11” tall in real life, the miniature is much bigger than Clyde!!


Anyway I despite my disappointment, I still really like the figure.
