Some one else actually likes my work!?

Hi All,

It's official. Those Bugbears I painted up are now live on the CP Models website here. You'll have to scroll down a little to see them, they're the second item. FBB2.

Here is my original picture:


I'm noticing some flaws in the photography right now, but overall, ok.

So if you like 20mm fantasy these are fun little figures to paint. They are about the same height as other 20mm(1/72) figures, so don't expect them to tower over other figures in this scale like the size comparison art from Dungeons and Dragons.

Note: These were formerly Splintered Light, but the range was sold to CP.

  1. Quite right, too! They look great, really showing off the sculpts well. Do you know if CP be getting all the Splintered Light range, including the old giants?

    1. Hi Hugh, thanks. It is nice to be recognized by the owner of said figures. I stumbled across your ships on Irregular again during one of my internet meanderings.

  5. That, in my humble opinion, is the pinnacle of success in the painting realm :)

    A hearty congrats, Sean. And just so you know, we all like your painting out here in the blog-o-sphere.

    I used your painting guide (herr schneerbart) to repaint my German GrossDeutschland soldiers with the helmet covers.

    1. Thank you very much Steven. It's nice to hear that somebody found my painting guide useful. I sometimes wonder if Schneerbart et al have had glorious adventures on Curt's table. If you have a link to your figures I'd love to see them.

    1. Thanks Millsy, I guess I'm still not totally comfortable with my "style". I feel like I've got a lot of catching up to do for the 20 years or so I didn't paint a lick.

    1. Thanks Roy, the sculpts are really good. Just the right amount of detail and not hard to clean up.

  8. Nice! I thought you were going to say they were 28mm. Always liked Bugbears...

    1. Thank you Simon, nope they're probably at most only 25mm from foot to top of head. Perhaps I should have made a scale shot.

  9. They look awesome. I can almost smell them!

  10. These are great. I as looking at them on the CP models site the other day and wondering about using them for evil dwarfs / dueregar. How tall do they stand? are they 20mm to the eye?

    1. Thanks Zhu, one of the many projects I've let languish. The ones in the picture were mounted on steel washers. I was worried that I wouldn't find them but lucked out. Finding a ruler with millimeters was atad more challenging. The washer is roughly 1mm thick. They appear to be about 22mm to the eye from the bottom of the washer and 25mm to the top of the head.

    2. Cheers! Sounds like they are a little too large for what I had in mind. Thanks for digging out a metric ruler and checking. Still, they are really good designs.
