I'd like to start with a quick word of
thanks to the ScaleCreepers for the invite to participate in this
"event" and to guest author on this august Blog! Cheers boys!
guess there is supposed to be where I wax philosophical about HeroQuest
and about how great it is, or was, and how discovering it changed my
life and lead me down the path to proper wargamming enlightenment.
I'm sorry to disappoint...but, I'm actually not that fond of HQ and had
managed to avoid playing a game of if until the summer of 2015 when
AirborneGrove introduced it to me at the OHNW event in Allentoen
PA...this was followed by one other notable game in the fall of 2016
that was GMed by Crooksy from the other side of the world...sadly I
think I slept through the second half of that game....I got tired of
watching Lopez's character fall into pit trap...after pit trap...after pit
Anyway...Being the type of guy that
has always liked to follow the cool kids around and do what they are
doing (this got me in a lot of trouble in High school)...when all the
ScaleCreeps dove into the Heroquest Quest I committed to painting a
figure for it as well! Ardyer offered up an appropriate figure for me to
...then I set it aside and forgot about it for like 8 months. LOL
Andrew's constant and unrelenting nagging and whining finally broke
down my resistance (he's a REALLY good Nag)...plus it's Orctober so I set
aside a night to knock this thing out.
Oi! it's a
rough sculpt...but I persevered and got him done. The cloth of the
tunic is actually fairly well sculpted and was fun to paint...but the
head, arms and other bits were RUGGED...I'm actually most proud of the
flagstone base that Andrew included with the figure as I experimented
with some different colored stones and they actually worked out!
Anyway...enough of my blathering...you are all just here for the money shot anyway...so here it is!
...Ugh...I'm Glad that's OVER!
ummm...yeah...so there it is... but thanks to the Scale Creeps for letting me soil your Blog!
