I have also gained a bit of speed with my painting. My most recent conquest is Borok, the gnoll-minotaur hybrid from Frostgrave:Perilous Dark. I must admit, I have always been really pleased with the concept of Borok as a mid-level bad-guy for Frostgrave. I was thrilled that he got some great artwork in the book, and even happier when Bobby Jackson turned that artwork into an amazing miniature!
Saying that, I don’t think Borok is my best work. I got the colour choices just slightly wrong. They work, but they probably could have worked better. Also, as the first serious painting I did after my illness, I didn’t feel that I had quite all of my brush-control back, so some of the detail is a bit sloppier than I would like. That’s only true on close examination though; he’ll look great on the tabletop.
The other nice thing about this figure is that he also works great for Greviks, the man-beast who appears in Rangers of Shadow Deep:Temple of Madness. Always nice when a figure can do double-duty!
