those are super dope, Roy. really like the bases too. Any pigments in there, or just sand and ochre paint?

Gorgeous freehand as usual Nate.

I used both sand and rust coloured pigments on the bases.

Ever consider doing a bish-bosh HowTo on pigments for those of us who've never got off our arse to try it for ourselves? :) Could use something fresh in the RP Library. 0;)

There's nothing to say really. I texture the bases and usually give them a light dry brush. Then after the figures have been varnished and I've added tufts, I get some pigment on a brush, put it on the base and work it into the texturing. I usually have to wet the base rim and wipe it dry to get rid of pigment stains. That's it.

I like the darker brown bones. Obviously been buried in peat! Great work on those teeth...

The base is neat and tidy with enough bits but not dominating the figure.

Would happly send him into combat on my table!

So I came across this beauty on Ebay, but sadly cannot ID her, nor can the Facebook groups I have checked with - thought I would try here too. She is based very much the same as F-series stuff from Citadel, but I dont see her on the CCM Wiki or Lost Minis Wiki..... anyone seen her before? Also, she is based on the cover of a Conan comic book, so she might not have been a released figure.
