The Age of Arthur collection has been much neglected these past few years, it was packed in boxes and bought with me to the US, but has lain un-played for these past five years with no new troops added to the forces.
Last year my LGS had a sale on and I picked up this Westwind Productions "Druids Making a Sacrifice with rock & goat" with a thought of adding it to the lead mountain in the eventuality that the Age of Arthur collection came back to the top of the painting list at some time.
One of the Chambers of Challenge for this years AHPC was:
Shrine: Dearly beloved Challengers, let us bow our heads, and create … a religious-themed entry in this chamber. A model which is worshipping, praying, genuflecting, preaching, pilgrimaging, scourging, crusading, venerating … or maybe just visiting parishioners for tea. Clerics welcome!I thought this piece would be perfect.
I have realised that after painting and basing though that the druids are all facing inwards, so a lot of detail I added to them is not that visible.
I'm rather pleased how it all came out and it will make a nice bit of table decoration when I next get around to playing an Age of Arthur game.
An evocative and gorgeous vignette...Inspired work, and title, a pleasure to watch...Poor goat!ReplyDelete
Thank you Phil, hopefully the knife was sharpDelete
Neat little vignette there Paul.ReplyDelete
Thank you PhilDelete
Great work Paul!ReplyDelete
Very interesting vignette. I agree with Phil, poor goat.ReplyDelete
Great work PaulReplyDelete
Thank you NeilDelete
Great work Paul, especially the shading and highlights on the capes. I find making one large area of the same color difficult to get just right.ReplyDelete
Cheers Jim, I do basecoat, wash, re-apply basecoat and a couple of successively lighter highlights.Delete
A nice vignette Paul...ReplyDelete
Let’s hope that they made a nice tasty stew afterwards.
All the best. Aly
Thank you AlyDelete
Very nice, Scrivs!ReplyDelete
You did not tell us; what did the entrails portend?!ReplyDelete
It's interesting, I learned recently from an episode of a podcast "Emperors of Rome" that Romans wore a face covering when carrying out a sacrifice, like the fellow doing the dispatching here. Not quite the way it is done though; his backlift is too high! :)
I think they are still having a rummage, but I suspect goat curry is foretold in the not too distant futureDelete
