I had a nice productive weekend... hope you all had a good'n!
Firstly, my two other Bears arrived in the post (courtesy of the brilliant Element Games!), so I took the time to magnetise up the big tray.
For my 750pt target (end of Jan) I only need the first two Bears painted, so I finished the sculpting on these two and got them undercoated ready for paint!
Here's the first completed Bear Rider!
Believe it or not, painting the Bear's head on the shields and making it actually LOOK like a bear, rather than some kind of wolf or dog, is actually very difficult! I initially tried it on the Winged Lancers and after over 10 unsuccessful attempts, I gave up and went for the Bear Paw motif (which I quite like anyway). When it came to the Bear Riders I didn't want to use the same icon as the lancers, so I tried painting the bears head again. This time I THINK it worked- what do you reckon?! Regardless its the best I can do....
Let me know what you think! The comments are great motivation, keep them coming (although I'm unable to reply!). If you want to chat, hit me up on Twitter @Jon_Kerr_T4G
