A Ranger grabs the Treasure!

I am happy to report that even in my temporary accommodation, I am managing to get a little painting done. Before we moved, I cleaned, assembled, and primed a bunch of miniatures, so I would have some ready to go. Here are the first couple!

I'm really pleased with the ranger. He is actually a mash-up of Frostgrave plastic parts. The body comes from the cultist box, the arms from the soldiers box, and the head from the barbarian box. I'm not sure, but I think the quiver comes from the gnoll box. That was not deliberate, but it does mean I managed to use every box on one figure! What I really like about this figure is that it shows off how versatile the cultist bodies are - a green paint job and it becomes a perfect ranger outfit.

The little treasure token comes from the Russian company Tiny Furniture - as did the back of coins token seen in my Ghost Archipelago demo shots. These are resin pieces and I can honestly say they are of the highest quality. Really enjoyable to paint. I've got a few other pieces that I will hopefully be able to show off in the future.


  1. Looking good. I'm currently painting up a few of my old empire militia to use as crew members for Ghost Archipelago.

  2. A great mix and a very nice figure.

  3. 1980's mullet cut now that takes me back. Great paint job.

    1. From the Walking Dead TV show

      Dr. Eugene Porter, "The smartest man I ever met happened to love my hair. My old boss, T. Brooks Ellis, the director of the Human Genome Project. He said my hair made me look like, and I quote, a fun guy, which I am."

      Now I'm thinking about making a Walking Dead Crew for Ghost Archipelago :D

  4. Those sprues are the bees' knees. They are simple enough for a quick paint job, but have enough detail to pick up washes well. It is a bit of a shame that the Gnoll arms are a bit over-sized to work with the other sprues.

    The only thing that slightly annoys me is that the bodies have molded on bases. I can see why this was done; so the plastics are the same size as the metals; but I do wish that it wasn't so.
